Cybertronian Culture Headcanons

  • I have so many bonding garment headcanons just give me a sec.
  • Okay, so some of the major ones are the Kaon Trail and the Iaconian Spark Veil. The Kaon Trail is like this huge flowing mass of different fabrics, colors, ruffles, ribbons, ect. all lovingly stitched together. Traditionally it represents the combination of events in the life of the mech/femme that brought them to be bonded. The Iaconian Spark Veil is this delicate lightly colored lace that covers the chassis of the to-be-bonded. It usually has a very bright solid fabric with more organic patterns just over the spark and will sometimes have bead ropes. It mostly represents the devotion and loyalty one has to their to-be-bonded.
  • There’s a small subsect of Cybertronians called Star Dancers. They believe that sparks are the literal incarnation of stars and that Solus Prime, not Prima, was the first Cybertronian with a true spark. They always portray stars to have eight rays to represent The Original Eight Enlightened who were given Truth by Solus Prime and spread it, forming the Star Dancers. The death of a nearby star is an occasion of mass grief, as an unborn brother has died, and the birth of a new one is something to be celebrated with days of Sky Dancing.
  • Sky Dancers are a group of Star Dancers/former Star Dancers who professionally preform traditional and/or original takes on Sky Dancing for the entertainment of large crowds. The staple of this style is the prevalent use of transformation midair, subsequent freefall, and last minute upward flight. They usually have very bright paint jobs/biolights to make themselves stand out from the dark sky and to make themselves look more akin to the bright glowing stars.

Random thought, in tf fannon, and I think cannon, bots don’t have bones.

Where then does Bonecrusher’s name come from?
Is it a translated version of his real name? I mean ppl say bots have ‘struts’ so would he be ‘Strutcrusher’?

Do some robot names not translate well? I mean ‘Jazz’ is also a name that is based on human stuff? did he choose that name on earth? did it sound like his cybertronian name enough and have a reference to music so he used it?

Am I thinking too hard abt robots?? yes.

Sunbow G1 Faces for Titans Return

I’ve added my latest 3d printable replacement faceplates for Titans Return figures, in this case, a series of G1-cartoon style faces:

  • Optimus Prime - For everyone wanting to make Skullsmasher into a City of Steel Optimus Prime Alligaticon:

These faceplates can be swapped for those of most Titan Masters with just a few twists of a screwdriver. Each face can be printed in a number of different plastic types and colors.

There are more than fifty other faceplates for Titans Returns figures in my Shapeways Store (click here).

‘“I’m looking for something specific.” Rodimus said, gesturing impatiently for him to enter the hab.

“Does it have to do with making yourself feel better about how pathetic you are?” Whirl asked as he stepped around Rodimus and into the hab suite.

As soon as the door clicked closed and locked, Rodimus flared his armor and let the heat trapped behind his plates hiss out. The sound was surprisingly loud in the enclosed space and Whirl quirked one side of his optic in response.

“Oh.” Whirl said, beginning to giggle. “Well frag, Roddy. What took you so long? I’m just full to the brim with fresh, hot, steaming humiliation, and I’d be happy to dump it all over you.”

“I might need something more than that.” Rodimus said, leaning back against the wall and regarding Whirl with his optics narrowed and brow furrowed ever so slightly. ‘
