    I feel it's now close enough to BotCon to start showing off.

    These are from what you could call a making off, currently located in simplistic form at www.hiqsite.com/drifting

    that looks good, are you selling copies of it?

    if so, I would like to make it from thin styrene, changing it from paperformer to transformer.

    Despite my loathing of AHM and Drift as a character...

    This is amazing. I have nothing but respect for anyone who can make a functional paper former.

    I haven't read the comic but nonetheless. Anyone who can create papercrafts get my respects. It's up there with scratchbuilding with styrene as needing the most talent, dedication and precision. And for that, I applaud you. Great job!

    that is great man, the first couple shots looked like a sketchup screencap or something.

    ahh damn, you don't have illustrator? you should have done the coloring in illustrator after a live-trace so you can scale up your work..theres still a couple weeks before botcon, it would be cool to see this thing HUGE!
