    Minvera from Drift. She works with either the front windshield but I altered the back to be more G1. Head is from some Arcee head I casted. Got it on line but no idea where this head originally came from. Let me know which bot mode you guys prefer.

    This Bot mode was my original intension

    With the paint underneath the windshield give it a more feminie body IMO

    Nice paint job, like the way it turned out... Just one thing, you might want to see if you can find smaller hands...

    Agreed, I would like to replace the entire arm with narrower arms as well eventually to make it look more feminine

    Well you beat me to finishing by months, that's for sure :) 

    Looks good, but I agree that the man-hands hurt her looks a little, but otherwise, beautiful work.

    Looks nice. The head looks like a modified "Myclone" Arcee head.

    Its you replace the hands with small, more feminine ones, you got a perfect Minerva custom. Its already very good as it is now. I prefer the hoodless version. Looks better.

    I agree looks awesome, and I totally agree with the smaller hands.

    Minerva is from Masterforce Minerva - Teletraan I: the Transformers Wiki - War for Cybertron, Transformers 3, Dark of the Moon, Transformers Prime, Toys

    I like the faux boobs/chestpiece (not in a creepy robo-fetish way). Are they from the 1/144 Gundam Arms Custom?

    Awesome work, dude.

    Not to be pervy, but the Heavy Arms boobies were a nice touch.

    I have to admit that I like version of the figure much better. Just wish there were something to do about the legs when it's turned that way.

    The original Drift chest doesn't look bad... but for some reason I feel weird knowing it's a female character with a clear windshield for a chest. Especially with the molded and painted detail underneath. (And here I started my post with "not to be pervy")

    I agree with the comments on having the robot chestplate. It slims down the body frame enough to be feminine. Yes smaller hands would do wonders. I was just thinking the 1/100 Gundam hands might be suitable for that scale.

    The third point? Holy huge shoulders, Batman! Too bad it will take quite some work to make the shoulders collapse. I like the way you posed them in the early pictures, though. They act more like wings/backpack/kibble than chunky man-shoulders, which is good.

    Looks good! I like the reverse style and robo-boobs look better, really changes that look of the character. I do agree with people that using slimmer arms and smaller hands might help femnize the look, but I still think it looks pretty damn good as is too.

    I've been looking to do a Nightbeat from this mold using the Waist mod that's floating around and a ball joint. I just have to figure out how to reverse the arms so they can bend backwards.

    An inelegant way is to remove the plastic on the side u want it to bend. This only gives you 40 ish degree of flexion though and makes the arm thinner.
