    Happy New Year all! I haven't been able to be on the boards very much in the last month (and when I could it was only briefly!) thanks to my job, but I look forward to catching up on all the stuff that has been posted.
    Here is a sculpture that I have been working on, on and off, for over a year. While working on some commissions for Rick Coronel (thread coming soon!), I have been molding and casting him as a side project. He started out as a Castilene sculpture, and is cast in white resin. I am considering having The Alchemy Works do a small casting run for me, but need to know how many would be interested. It would end up being a 18 or 19 piece resin kit. I already have a second full casting done from my molds, but they wouldn't hold up to multiple castings.
    Anyways: on with the pics;

    Casted parts (minus left lower leg, still in mold)

    and finished painted sculpture:

    He is posed over the remains of a very unlucky random Autobot, who's head is in Cyc's left hand. I went with larger hands and slightly longer arms to give him a sense of power, which I feel is in line with Cyclonus' character.
    Let me know what you all think. It feels good to be back, and should be posting more stuff soon!

    p.s. To those who have tried reaching me via P.M., I should be able to respond to you all within the next few days! Thanks for your patience!

    I love that. Cyclonus is one of my favs and this statue really captures his essence. Prior to it being painted, I thought the dead bot was Ultra Magnus. If you mass produce, I want a dead Magnus under his heel. WOOT!

    That's hilarious, because as I was painting the base I was thinking "I need to go all 'TransTorture' on this guy!" -Also, your sig is awesome! Now I know I have another album to pick up. Tomahawk rules....as does anything with Mike Patton involved!-
    Thanks to all for the interest and the comments. I will run it past the folks at The Alchemy Works, and see if it would be cost effective to have kits made of this guy. If I can offer him in the $100-$125 price range I may go throught with it, and do around 30 kits.
    As I was sculpting this guy I was trying to make it so a kit would be as versatile as possible for posing. Hence the multiple parts. I was also thinking " How cool would it be to sculpt a line like Marvel Legends, but with TF characters?" Probably a good thread for GD, but just think how awesome the build-a-figures could be!
    Thanks guys!
