    I like the way the legs are comin' along! They have nice "folds" and look very good as leg modules! Keep us posted for sure!:thumbs2:

    Careful using those unicron legs.

    Just kidding. I saw this WIP on another board, and have been anxiously watching and waiting on it.

    HA! Yeah. I don't see why everyone is all bitchy about the Unicron legs. Sometimes you have to use what works and fits. And unfortunately, Hasbro hasn't given us too many other legs this size.

    And sonuvabeach, I got called in to work today. Stupid point-to-point lines went down. Hopefully, they stop throwing alarm codes and I can run home and get back to the real work :)

    I love the way WJ looks as a leg, very powerful. Using Unicron's feet also works really well.

    You should make that chest/face into something like Gaiking when not combined. You could even take Unicron's larger shoulder horns, replace Uni's existing antlers and make this an homage to ol' Gaiking...:inquisiti  I love those drawings, this is very interesting stuff.

    What will you use to sculpt the chest?

    Breakdown's chest is drying right now. It is a combination of styrene and a two part epoxy for the base. Once that dries, I will carve out the panel lines and sand down any rough spots. I'm still toying with the forearms. I very badly want to give him better articulation in the arm department, but may be limited by space.

    I really like where you're going with this. I think I would at least suggest a few things:

    1. Using some other feet aside from Unicron's
    2. Just remember you're not limited to just what Hasbro gives you. There are a TON of toys created that are ripe for kitbashing! Mix and match!
    3. Continue to have fun! :)

    The feet are going to be modified Unicron feet. They won't just be slapped on there as is.

    And you are so right! I can use what Takara gives me as well :p

    I thought I had a good idea for elbow or shoulder joints, but damn if Death Star Vader isn't just a little on the small side.
