    Hey Guys,

    So I came to a decision. Living in the apartment is making painting too difficult/dangerous with all the fumes and such with no real solution that I feel comfortable with. With that said, I am going to still build, but wait to paint until we get the house in December.

    Here is the first of the two clones I am working on. This has been coated with the flat black. I am trying to stay true to the transformation of the originals, while updating and articulating them.

    Not happy with the ball joint elbows, and still have to replace the hands, but this gives the idea and style/shape I am going for. Something that fits in with classics. Cloudraker is next up.

    Enjoy

    Looks like classics seeker legs being used there, and a vintage g1 body?

    The transformation is very G1. Turns into that strange vehicle thing, not quite sure what it was meant to be, but you've recreated it pretty faithfully.

    Looks good.

    Awesome, Thanks! If it works that would be great!. I always just worry about Fumes and such in such a small space as this apartment, especially with a wife and multiple pets running around.

    ?

    Changed the elbows to universe smokescreen elbows and forearms, allows for a better look and easier alt mode transformation.

    Will post pics when complete.
