    So normally i wouldn't have 2 wip threads going at the same time but sense their collaberations with 2 different incredible artists i'm okay with it this time so doublepunch w.thyvipera will be in his and His overly verticle fellow with ???? will be here, hopefully i will be able to make something he would enjoy tricking out with electronics but we shall see untill then.

    This has been the biggest pain build i have done so far and by that i mean i shattered is crotch so i'm waiting for a new one, but so face his legs have been completed articulation in them includes
    ball jointed ankles
    double bend at knee
    rotation above the thigh
    forward/backward and in and out at the thigh

    looks very promising so far!!!
    any thoughts on trying to beef up or enlarge his toes/feet?with the added thigh and crotch height now they kinda look a touch small.
    base mode's coming along fine too!!!

    Not sure about the feet, they turned out okay when he's all assembled, plus making them larger would limit alot of transformation stuff

    You're not the first one with the shattered crotch problem, but I'm curious to know what's up with Overlord's plastic. Is it that brittle when it comes to kitbashing and working with?

    kind of it wasn't just the crotch eitor i had scew holds shatter full areas trying to put them back, the build is finally done and getting mailed off to be painted today so i'm hoping he doesnt have many issues for the painter, though considering the painter is one of the top 2 customizers out there i think he should be fine.

    I am looking forward to seeing this guy finished. I have worked on three of these guys and at the LSOTW one Primo and I did stood at about 14 1/2 inches. So I am curious so see how he looks proportionate wise.
