    This is my very first kitbash, so go easy on me. He doesn't transform.
    He's made out of an RX-71..no...um...RX-78 2 Gundam action figure, a Reissue Bumblebee keychain, expoxy repair strips, hot glue, sliver, black, and yellow paint.

    By "Epovy repair strips" I assume you mean the yellow/blue kneadite that mixes to green? AKA "Greenstuff"?

    That yellow paint was an ass to work with and it took a good 5 or so coats of the stuff to actually get the color I was looking for. The moulding on the legs is kind of weird, it doesn't even look all that mechanical, but more of like lumpy armor. I need to take a poster from Seibertron's advice and work with the expoxy in layers and use actual tools, seeing as how the moulding was worked from using only my hands. If I can some some expoxy, I'll try and make another bot...or Con.
