Transformers Blackout Custom #1

Updated: February 21, 2011

Ive made this Transformers Blackout Custom for a customer in canada. This one is so special i call it Epic TCT Blackout #1.

Blackout is one of the first Transformers to appear together with his minion Scorponok in the first sequel Transformers movie. He appeared as a Sikorsky MH-53 Pave Low helicopter as a disguise to hack the US Military network to find the location of Megatron and the All Spark. The same figure came out for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen… they called him Grindor.

Enuff said, i made a Custom Blackout from a kit bash CH53 Sea Stallion. Just like all my other customs, Blackout is more of a replica… it never transforms. As always, my custom will make you think and feel like the figure jumped out of your screen. A movie custom accurate so to speak. Its a work in progress but i will post every detailed pic as this custom progress. Always stay tuned to this site. Enjoy!
