Still a WIP, but almost done
UPDATE on PAGE 2
now that's a good idea. I like the head and his staff of balance.
One thing though, some of the paints you chose either seem to be too thin, or too close to the other colors and makes it look kind of rushed. Maybe give him some panel lines to help break it up.
Great job! i always thought of using this mold as Sentinel Prime, but unfourtunatly my area only got RTS Rodimus vs. Cyclonus from this line. the orange could be a bit darker, tho, other than that, great work!
God damn, that looks like it's gonna be epic.
Only now I actually want a Grapple for my collection, because all that gray mixed in with the orange actually makes that vehicle mode pop, and I LOVE IT.
he needs tick ears, but he's turning out quite nicely.
You beat me to it. I had this idea yesterday! Good job!
Aye, I will be adding more details... most of the issue was due to deciding which Sentinel Prime to homage... I really wanted to try and blend both the Movie, and the IDW/Dreamwave colour schemes... so yellow, orange and red, didn't seem half bad, but also needed to deal with grey, so I opted to use the grey on his chest, but I may have to change it to a black for overall Figure scheme continuity. We'll see how this develops.
If you can fine a store called TJMaxx or one of its affiliates, they have him(grapple) for 10 bucks. I tried to get a more burt orange, but ot was become way to reddish or brownish, Testors acryl line, doesn't seem to have goo mixing options. i may have to opt a visit to a GW for some warhammer paints.
TJMAXX $10 bucks get them while they are still around.
Thanks mater! I didn't opt the ears because he looks more roman w/o them.
Awesome! Cannot wait to see yours! I've been on this idea since I first saw Grapple, and knew i had to find one!
The trick is having a TJMAXX that HAS Grapple. The only RTS things I've seen at THREE TJMAXX stores around me has just been Legends figures.
Wow, I've got no Legends by mine.... And you're right about finding the one with them. when I scored a Grapple, I had went to 3 and only found one. So yeah, its a hunt.
Sorry for the lack of updates, as I have been without power for the last 7 days, due to Hurricane Irene( to those of you still dealing with the recovery, stay strong mates).
I will be updating ASAP.
Will this be Good guy Sentinel or Bad guy Sentinel? Are you going to make his cosmic rust gun?
I'll let his purple eyes answer that
he actually looks like a fire truck version of the Marval Flame.don't know who he is,look it up on the wiki
nice work. but does anyone see this guy and think "ironhide prime"?
wow thats like spartan
Thanks mates! I'll get you some more pics soon...
I am basing his look on this totally epic illustration:
You took a amazing figure and made even better!
Is that the final paint?
It gives me a strong Ironhide "vibe". Love it!!!
That's a nice Ironhide version that you got there. Good job!
Not totally, I have to still do somethings, and get you mates some pics of the truck mode. I also have to make his shield and spear , oh and give him a rust gun
Yeah its the whole Romanesque helm that he has...but you know what? You have a great idea there I should attempt a Ferrus Prime (Ferrum is latin for Iron)
lol he's not Ironhide, But see the above comment for more info
