got any plans for painting him up g1 style?
Close, he's actually a bucket-wheel excavator.
I've actually got a G1 Metroplex lined up as well, using most of it's given alt-mode to try and make something of a city out of it.
I'm sure you've got a much better work ethic than I do though, so you'll probably get much more done before I even truly get to starting. It'll be good to see what you come out with though. Looking forward.
WHOA, bucket-wheel excavators DO exist!
The right one would be good for a Movieverse Metroplex!
Yes, BWE's do exist. Type Bagger 288 into Google and watch your jaw hit the floor.
Can't wait for the big reveal.
I'm really excited about this thread. Every time I see you post, I think of this project.
Hey thanks guys. I started with a G1 Metroplex vibe, but it just didn't look right, so I decided to go with a more realistic BWE color scheme midway through.
bump for new pics. please let me know what you think so far.
Looks great so far. Your paint work is really making the details on this mold stand out nicely. Looking forward to seeing the completed product.
look's like ol' plexy just homaged ol' plexy,good job,and love the modifications you done...
Awesome on all counts, bud
This is the best Metroplex I have ever seen with my own 2 eyes.
Comes very close to the real thing and kicks-ass with the replacement of his right arm with his wheel-bucket weapon. No need for it to be hand-held now (a crap-shoot feature in my opinion). All Decepticon gestalts, beware!
You have gots to make a tutorial on how to do this one for those who are interested in making one for themselves!
It does look like Metroplex IMO. The colors are spot on and you did a very cool job. All he needs is Trypticon to fight with.
Love the arm mod.
Gorgeous paintwork as always. The huge arm would have given a deformed look to a lesser figure, but for him it really works well.
I'm so excited about your "next up", as I've been wondering about your avatar!
Looks damn good. Any plans for a Six-gun, scamper or slammer to compliment?
That is BADASS!!!!
Pretty sweet. I like that idea you went with the arm, makes me think a lot of Ash and his chainsaw hand.
I'm not going to lie though, I'm really looking forward to vTHISv guy.
