    G1 Battle Worn Metroplex (metroplex V2.0

    This was my first commision that was really anything worth noting.
    The commisioner asked for a for a G1 Articulated metroplex. He requested it stay fairly G1 show.comic accurate, but also well articulated and with some weathering/battle wear. This was my first attempt and battle wear and weathering so it turned out okay. Then was given custom read striping and the city helicopter pad was done with car vinyl decaling material. As well as new attempt at the light windows for the skyscrapers using a more HQ vinyl

    Articulation includes
    no head cause i wanted to keep the gimick
    rotation at the shoulder
    in and out just below the shoulder
    elbow, rotation below the elbow,
    primus hands
    waist rotation
    in and out/forward and back at the the hip
    rotation just above the knee
    knee bend
    ball jointed feet
    Robot Mode

    Very cool, I like how you gave him more articulation with keeping the over all look of the original design. Well done sir!

    I like the legs, very well done, but the arms need to retract somehow for city mode

    this is absolutely badass. really like how you kept the thighs of the original but added new knees. BTW, not to knitpick, but "warn" should be "worn" unless you did it that way on purpose :p
