    Removing the body shell was a good move it looks alot better more movement in shark mode. Nice.

    I've been wanting someone to do Seacons for a long time! I say "I can't wait" all the time, but I don't think I've ever meant it more than I do for your set of Seacons. You nailed the colors!

    Admittedly, I know absolutely nothing about the Seacons despite owning one of them as a kid (couldn't tell you which one by memory). It'll be nice to see where this goes. Also might go and jog my memory a bit on TFWiki because of this.

    The robot mode looks great!

    The beast mode, however, seems to be a little naked... I think some styrene and/or epoxy work on the flat purple surface that the dorsal fin is attached to, as well as where the tail meets the body will really help this look much better.

    I am looking forward to seeing your progress!

    I concur to some degree. The exposed robot-mode limbs and the clear gaps on the shark form look out of place.

    The shark fins themselves were molded to have gaps in them, so I suppose the gaps seen in the now-exposed shark torso are consistent in that regard, but I could be reading too much into things.

    Actually, I sort of like this aspect of the custom. However, I do agree on adding some filler for the fins.

    I must say this custom is pleasantly surprising. Great work:thumb

    thanks for the comments guys, hope to get them all done soon, I'm a slow painter and trying to make a transforming turtle isn't the easiest thing in the world to do LOL!

    As for the gaps on the fins, I totally agree in shark mode, but had styrene on and they looked too bulky and big in robot mode, the big solid fins just didn't look right on such a skinny TF, so the gaps are there to try and make him 'fit' together properly.
