Alterations Unveiled

Posted by:
Jason at 2008-03-21 10:38 pm   (site update)

In 1997 Unicorn.com first came online for the purpose of displaying pictures of our Transformers toy Alterations. Now, over 10 years later, we are returning to our roots! Today, we are thrilled to announce our totally revamped and reborn Unicron.com Alterations Blog.

We now have a totally interactive database of Alterations. The new Alterations Blog is searchable, for better organization and usability. We've added functionality for commenting on alteration posts. Now it’s easier than ever for us to post pictures of your alterations and show off your work to a world of Transformers fans. So grab a digital camera and send your pictures to: obsidian@unicron.com. We'll host them right here for you or we’d be glad to post a link if you have a site of your own to display your work. Thanks for visiting and for all your contributions.

Ha ha ha, didn't I tell ya LM! :)

May his soul rest in peace, the late great TFMaster, the ultimate TF kitbasher... used to give me a hard time because he mailed me (like literally) ~250 photographs of his work... and it took me forever to get them added! (and thus, "Transtopia" http://www.tfmaster.com/ was born!)

Those pix along with several hundred other toy alt pictures had me completely overwhelmed. There were SO many pix. So much awesomeness! Back then there was no easy way to get photos added. No easy way to organize, sort, post comments... everything I always wanted that Alterations section to be... FINALLY we can provide the forum we've always dreamed of! Hurrah!

Alright all you "alterations guru's" or "customizers" or "kitbashers" or whatever you call yourselves! Let's see what you've got!!!!
lord megatron said,  - 2008-03-21 23:07:57
we should hold a contest! may the best kitbasher.......kitbash! and btw perceptor, i prefer to call myself a custom lord. (goes into squeaky fan voice) "teehee" oh and another thing, i sent you a invite on youtube, perc.
Jason said,  - 2008-03-22 00:54:08
Hey LM, I'm glad you like.
It's been a lot of work. I've been looking forward to this unveiling for quite a while. I finally got ALL the finishing touches on it today. Now, it will be a pleasure to keep our Alterations section updated frequently.
lord megatron said,  - 2008-03-22 00:59:28

i love custom transformers and i love this site! and do you know that bwtf.com is under recostruction
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-03-22 10:18:59
At last, this page is unveiled. Perceptor gave me a sneak peek at it and I was dying to see it activated. Kudos to Unicron.com!
Byrer prime said,  - 2008-03-22 10:53:52
I got the sneak peek too, but I didn't notice my kitbash then. I saw it on there this time, though. Great job Jason, but you know that means more work. Looks like it'll be easier for you than the old method. Let me go get my camera!
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-03-22 15:44:38
Ok, guys. so now we have a fully up-and-running kitbash section. Now what about a fanfic section? This site doesn't have one yet, right? Cuz I just finished my first fic today over at the Seibertron.com forums, but I doubt anyone's gonna read it (or the ones following it).

In case anyone's wondering, its episode one of my new Machine Wars fanfic series.
lord megatron said,  - 2008-03-22 21:23:11
well I think they have worked their butts off for the past couple of months trying to get this thing going. so as of now, I would suggest that they kick back and enjoy their accomplished work.
Byrer prime said,  - 2008-03-22 23:48:21
I'm all for a fanfic section, but just add it to the list.
Human Error said,  - 2008-03-23 10:53:40
Happy Easter! Now if i could only get Unicron to release my Cadburys! Stupid bot thinks they're filled with energon!

Nice pic HE, nice pic.

I can't believe how amazing those new kitbashes look. Absolutely amazing work everybody! I wanted to comment on some, but they really are just all so amazing that I'd have to comment them all. So I hope you guys don't mind when I simply say great work everybody.

While I'm not a kitbasher myself, I've got one in mind that would be fairly simple. I really want somebody to make a fullsize Leo Prime figure off of a Nemesis/Leobreaker figure. The hardest part would be that he needs a Prime head replacement, but I'm fairly certain that if somebody took the Energon Optimus Prime figure's head it would swap in perfectly. You'd just need to connect the fur/hair from Leobreaker to the back of Prime's head after that. Maybe somebody could bash that for me and post it? I'd really like to see one!

You are invited to a major chat party on 3/25/08 at 7:00 pm eastern time. Here is the link: http://www.freewebs.com/cybertronnews/

its strange wen i look at some of these kitbashes bcuz ive seen most of them already. i did used to go to tfmaster.com, then i heard he died. Very sad. ive seen others of these kitbashes at actionfigurecustoms.com- check it out!! that frenzy.rumble guy sold that awesome-looking magnus for something like $200-300.
Jason said,  - 2008-03-23 23:59:42
I may be mistaken, but I think that frenzy.rumble's Ultramagnus actually went for something in the 600's!

TriPredRavage, feel free to compliment everyone here. There's nothing wrong with that. On that note though, I have just changed how commenting for the alterations blog works. Now it's a little easier to comment now; you can make a quick anonymous comment if you don't want to bother with logging in.

Fanfic section? hmmm... I will say this: having put the time into building the framework of utilizing some of blogger's functionality for unicron.com, it will be easier to now apply that base to future projects. There will be more upgrading and perhaps even new sections to come.
~:^)
Happy Easter Everybody!
quickfire said,  - 2008-03-24 05:42:05
I'm gonna make one!
Autobutt said,  - 2008-03-24 13:30:37
Whoa $600? well i wouldnt be surprised but that magnus wwould be worth it, especially with the tralior that comes with it.
lord megatron said,  - 2008-03-24 15:34:22
hey just sent you guys some more custom pics. unfortunatly they had to be included in 2 seperate emails due to my ps3 being retarded at the moment.
lord megatron said,  - 2008-03-24 17:20:39
darn it Tyscream, I cant go!!! my stupid ps3 is to blame.
Tyscream said,  - 2008-03-24 20:24:56
aww man, well as for any one else..... Remember to come to the chat party at my site! date: 3-25-08 7 pm eastern time! www.freewebs.com/cybertronnews/ please come i need more transformers fans there!
Autobutt said,  - 2008-03-24 23:52:44
From wat ive seen, Jin Saotome is one of the best kitbashers out there
lord megatron said,  - 2008-03-25 08:00:36
Jin all the way!!!!! IMO he is the best.
Jason said,  - 2008-03-25 13:25:59
Yeah, I totally impressed with Jin Saotome. Wow.
Tramp said,  - 2008-03-25 21:48:30
Is there a limit to the number of images per kitbash gallery?
Perceptor said,  - 2008-03-26 12:50:53
No, not really. Just try to keep things reasonable. ie. a couple, I dunno, does maybe less than 5-6 images per toy alt sound good?
Tramp said,  - 2008-03-26 14:27:33
No. Most of my customs have 20 or more pics per model. Some as many as 60 pics for the scratch-builds.
Autobutt said,  - 2008-03-26 16:57:23
Tramp, ive seen ur work before on TFmaster's site i believe, or if not there somewhere else- ur names familiar to me. ur kitbashes are really good!
Tramp said,  - 2008-03-27 02:26:57
That's me. I have some new ones which don't have galleries up yet including my new Elita-1 and Firestar. What galleries I have on TFArchive are cut to shreds with most of the important pics cut out, particularly orthographic shots and such, so i am definately looking for a place to show all of my galleries in their complete form; uncut, untrimmed, unedited.
lord megatron said,  - 2008-03-27 07:49:46
Elita-1 vs. Firestar=bowchickabowow! lol
Autobutt said,  - 2008-03-27 10:39:33
Yea i noticed tfarchive doesnt have the best pictures. Do u keep in touch with other kitbashers? i dont know any of them personally but im sure people would love to see kitbashers like JAF and Devastator on unicron.com!
Tramp said,  - 2008-03-27 20:19:44
I haven't really heard from them since Transtopia merged with Seibertron. As far as galleries go. My new Elita-1 has 41 pics for a gallery,while Firestar has 35 pics. Among those currently on TF Archive but not on Transtopia, their complete galleries (not edited) are: Alpha Trion- 62 pics, Ultra Magnus- 65 pics, Moonracer V2- 35 pics. The galleries I do have on Transtopia run the gamut from small galleries to large ones.
Tramp said,  - 2008-03-31 18:46:26
I sent some of my Gallery submissions in but can't send the rest until the email is emptied. How long until they get posted?
