    What's LWB without his maker?

    Took Sentinel Prime's mug, separated the halves and removed the fake light piping feature. Opened up those squinty little eyes with the hobby knife, bent styrene to fit the new larger openings. Sanded the chin down to remove the molded-in detail, and scribed a small chin line in. Carved the antennae from some soft plastic/rubber Bionicle pieces, attached them with glue. Removed the "ears."

    I'm considering scribing a toothy grin on, if I feel brave.

    I've always thought that it wasn't much of a coincidence that Townsend Coleman, the voice of The Tick, was providing the voice of Sentinel Prime, who just happens have a striking resemblance to the Big Blue Ball of Justice. Can't wait to see this finished!

    you do know that now you have to somehow merge his sword and sheild together into some sort of spoon weapon don't you? :lol  he looks great, I'd try one myself if I could find a Sentinel Prime.

    I want to know why this is the first time I've seen anyone ACTUALLY make this custom, when Animated has already come and gone?!? Travesty.

    You're quite welcome, and so do I :D 
    He's a dead-ringer eh?
    Thanks guys!
    It's uncanny for sure, I can't wait to finish him myself :) 
    I actually have a plan for Arthur!
    But of course. I threw that head together in the span of a couple hours, haven't worked anything else out.
    Thanks!
    Best idea ever? Nahh. Maybe in the top 10, I loves me some Tick :) 
    Arthur is in the works, but his fill-in is already made: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radic...inels-new-throwing-weapon-er-sidekick-er.html
    That's a big promise to make, I may work on her after Arthur :D 
    Agreed, but happy to be of service!
