Demolish the Competition by Jin-Saotome Demolish the Competition by Jin-Saotome
Demolishor joins my Revenge of the Fallen customs as one of the cooler designs in the movie in my opinion. Unfortunately the toy itself is pretty lacking and usually passed over in the aisle. Well not this time. I started out with the original toy and removed the head adding a new double ball-jointed neck (if you want to remove the head for this mod you can easily just tear it straight off) fold up fingers within the shovel made from Soundwave's toes, and modded the tires so they're free spinning.

I also added sculpt inside the main body cavity like hoses, gears, pistons, and on the outside added wire to various sections. The paint job is a mix of shading, airbrushing, some washes, a blending of red and orange, rust scuffs, oil splatter, dusty weathered streaks, and whatever else I could think of to make it look like a realistic prop of the onscreen character.

I'm going to continue to push the limits of detailing with these RoTF customs and throw every technique I have into them. Wish me luck!

This is epically awesome. I saw this a while ago on another site, and I didn't realize you had a dA account until now!

You've actually persuaded me to try my own mod of Demolishor. It'll be my first time, and I highly doubt it will look anywhere near this good, but I want to give it a go. I got him pretty cheap haha.

I do have to know though, I was fiddling with mine tonight, and I was having trouble with the head. How exactly did you get it off?

He was one of my favorites in the new movie. Just sort of how he basically just moves and stuff blows up...

Also, even with all the upgrades you gave him, he still seems like an awkward toy. It's probably just his design and body structure, I guess... :shrug:

Did you give him more articulation in the arms? That's the major weakness to me. I'm kinda iffy about getting the toy, but your version?! Oh my gosh, I want one!!! And your custom movie Shockwave. Are these for sale currently?

*whistles* Woah... Just woah. That right there is beautiful. Demmy there truely looks incredible with all that grunge work. As a whole, I think most of the ROTF figures look gorgeous with a weathered look, but Demolisher somehow manages to pull it off best.

Lovely work. Just lovely. You really out did yourself here.

Dude... just... just get outta here!!! LOL this is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm really in awe of your attention to the details, and like, sorry for being ignorant but how do you do this? like I have the toy but it's nothing like what you added on, like what materials do you use to sculpt in to add those details like the hoses and gears inside the cavities?...

Also, what paint do you use to do this? and I'm concerned that if I do paint mine, would it scratch off if I transform him?

Nice paint job you did with this one. I'm really digging the whole "weathered" look. The small "rust" spots are also a nice touch as well.
