    wow. I haven't been looking at this thread because wip threads kill me. I want to see the finished product! now that it's here, congratulations. I realize after last year, you'll probably never take anything to botcon again, but this would, IMO, walk away with first place in the kb contest. I'd love to see pics of this guy with wheeljaxx's liokaiser.

    one question, though. now that you've put him together in gestalt mode, will you ever take them apart again? I only ask because in my experience, I take pics of the modes that I won't be using again, and then get them in bot mode, make them look all pretty touching up the paint, take the pics, and never transform them again.

    I don't know... probably not, honestly. its slightly possible since I love motormaster so much though. hehehe I doubt I'll take this dude to botcon though.. I tell you what though, if Wheeljaxx would give me the actual height measurement of leo, I could easily photoshop them together so that they were properly scaled, so it'd be as good as a real picture.



    yeah its in here somewhere *L* probably right in the middle, honestly!


    You know, I just realized I never posted the group photos of the robot modes!!! wow I'm a dumbass. :banghead:  give me a moment, and I'll put those up :lol 



    EDIT: here they are, sorry about that!

    man, classics mirage looks good no matter what color he's painted. between the original, wheeljaxx's, yours, and the red one, they could probably do a crayola rainbow pack of him and he'd sell :)

    I think he meant an elbow for the arm mode.

    ahh ok, well that was easy. just use his hips. *shrugs* to give him more room towards the body, that's why I cut the cab and put a hing inside of it so it can fold outward from the arm.

    I don't want to harp on you about this but I don't think you understood what I was explaining (because you said the shin would be forward). I don't have a problem with the knee, the way you did it, but it's just the customizer, in me, to modify your creation, just like I do Hasbro's.
    Here are the pics to demonstrate.

    This is why I didn't know if it could be done to the other leg unless the center panel can be lifted to allow space for MM toe. Dragstrips, angled front end, seems like it would work well and keep it centered with the leg. You would still have knee articulation by straighening out the revolvotech joint.

    I won't bring this up again. You have left quite an impression on everyone with this mod. Keep it up.

    That's a very good description...i guess it's my loss that I'm confused shitless because I happen to lack a Downshift (but that part WASN'T my fault. I just put Cyb Def Hot Shot and Downshift behind my back, shuffled em round and told Dad to pick a hand...bye bye Downshift.)! Don't take it the wrong way though.

    I don't know what else to say. I didn't add anything to give his arm mode a "elbow" joint, I just used his hips, cause the legs already can move, and the legs are the forearm portion of the arm-mode


    Thanks, WJ, your LK is friggin' amazing, and this takes nothing away from that! now get me those pictures so I can put him in the gallery too :D
