    Ok this has been a real pain in the ass so hats off to all those guys who pulled this off before!big thanks to xaviercal for the styrene advice also and wikkids tutorial on heating the stuff!

    ok so first off i wanted the colours really g1 here not over the top in details just real clean toon look,also the waist has a magnetic joint that extends and swivels to go to alt mode,i might add a vid later to show what im talking about here

    on another note i made the head removable because i noticed the arms press down on the head in alt mode with a lot of pressure making it a nighmare for paint rub problems

    hope you all like and he be on the ebay tommorrow if anyone is interested,cheers!

    Yer i bet it is too. The only difference I might try and do is try to add some articulation to the feet. A ball joint or something so they can appear flat to the ground in various poses where the legs are angled sideways. If I manage it right, then it should add extra stability I hope....

    thats a good idea,i thought about it but my soul had been torn out my ass by that point!aslo with those seeker legs,if you get the pose right,you can angle those feet to the floor anyway

    adding a ball joint while still making them flip up/rotate for alt mode sounds like a tricky mod!cant wait to see it when ya done bud.cheers

    If I can make mine half as good as yours, I will be pleased with it because yours is awsome. Very sharp and looks totally G1 accurate, and is a tall order ofr anyone trying to recreate your masterpiece.

    I was wonder how you transplanted the seeker to the shockwave mold. The seeker waiste is connected by a rivert thingy I think. Have you got any pics of the WIP on this? Pretty please! It would be really helpful for any tips you can offer....
