    Hey all! Here is a commissioned project that i recently wrapped up. The Decepticon Clones, Pounce and Wingspan. These guys were really fun to do, and presented a lot of unique challenges. I wanted to ensure that the bot modes were virtually identical (as they should be,) and that there was a good amount of articulation added to the bots as well. The animal modes were improved slightly, by scratchbuilding the wings (WS) and front legs (P) to make them slightly more proportional. Admittedly not as powerful looking as I would have wanted a "perfect" version of Pounce to look, but it was a needed sacrifice for the "clone" bot modes (my main goal!)
    The paint was another challenge, as all the actual colors used had to be custom mixed to achieve the right look.
    Credit goes to the commissioner (Thanks Matt!,) for seeing that the classics seeker mold would work well for these guys! Enjoy!

    These guys are at the top of my list to buy just stock, but you've gone and awesomified them to the Classics degree! Great work and vision on these guys. Now do a simpler version so I can copy off you :D

    Oh you saw that didjya!? I guess my special effects aren't so special!
    Wingspan stands on his own, but doesn't really look "in flight!"


    They are on their way "home." :D
