    Hi Guys!

    Well i decided to remake something i did 4 or so years ago. This is being made from coloured poster board bought from my local hobbycraft store and for the all joints im useing things called zoobs, they are a kids construction set that are big ball joints so they work well for this project. its gonna work out at just over a foot tall, so far i have made the right leg and pelvis. if any one has any hints or tips they would be greatly accepted lol

    many thanks

    nice work. I used a papercraft version of prime I found online for the foundation of a 24" MP prime I am working on. great starting point to make sure everything works and lines up right.

    that one is awesome too, but I wanted to stick closest to the G1 cartoon feel (which I think the one I picked had) I really just used it for pattern and proportion sake.
