He's evil, he's mean, he's out to kick some Autobot butt, it's G1 Decepticon MOCformer marksman, Skullcrusher!
About this creation
An underling of Megatron, Skullcrusher was originally going to be in a combiner group - his personality clashed with every group presented, so Megatron decided against making him part of a team. Since that day, Skullcrusher has hated Megatron, but unlike Starscream, Skullcrusher bides his time quietly obeying orders, waiting for the right time to dispose of Megatron. Until then, he sharpens his marksmanship on the Autobots.
Skullcrusher and things:
A true assassin, Skullcrusher relishes each shot he takes, never wasting Energon in a "blind" firefight, but placing each skilled shot carefully, targetting first to paralyze and wound, then to kill. His hatred of the Autobots goes back to the war days on Cybertron, where it is rumored an Autobot killed his best friend in battle. Revenge is a dish best served cold, and nothing chills like the passage of time.
Yes, I patterned his arm and leg transformations after my version of Gears. It works out nicely, just as his head attachment works. If I build this large-scale, the head will transform as well, not just be clipped on.
As always, feel free to comment / critique, build on and HAVE FUN!
Quoting Clayton Marchetti
Awesome shaping and I love the color scheme. He looks cool in robot mode. I like how you made his head. Excellent Scott!
Thanks, Clayton! I like both modes too, but I think his lower legs should be a plate or two thicker. I dunno about the gun, it was a quick throw-together thing. I may redo it/him, so look for version 2.x sometime in the future.
