    And here it is, my first heavy mod. I based this Cy-Kill on his original MR-01 toy counterpart (STA: Gobots: MR-01 "Cy-Kill"). I used the Super Gobot version as a comparison in the photos below.

    You can find the original WIP thread here: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/211495-gobots-cy-kill-wip.html

    My painting still needs work. I tried giving the cap on his head an amber color by mixing Tamiya clear yellow with a dab of Model Master International Orange. I used Folk Art's metallic blue for the legs and forearms. I don't know if you can see it, but there's a nice little reflection going on between this and the chrome. The red tends to bounce off the latter as well.

    I hope everyone enjoys these photos in the meantime. It's been a joy working on him, although I honestly think this project took too damn long (almost 3 months). But I guess that's what work, having a girlfriend, and getting distracted by side projects will do to you.

    C&C as usual.

    This turned out great, man. Cy-Kill was always one of my favorite Gobots and you did a fantastic job on this. I'm looking forward to the alt mode pics. Keep up the great work!

    Well done man, for the work you put into this you deserved to have it come out as well as it did. He looks great with Fracture and w00t, kicking Meg's ass as promised! Really looking forward to alt mode pics when you do your touch up.

    Satomi, you sir did an awesome job. Despite the three months, your gf, and life itself. You gave Cy-Kill a great upgrade to the original. So kudos/props to you, man. And also keeping your thread alive during that time.

    Very nice! If the original Gobot figs were as great as this, maybe they wouldn't get so much of a bad rap.*




















    * - yeah, they probably still would lol.

    I think I would've liked to have seen the face silver...

    ...but believe me, that is a minor, MINOR snip compared to the overall AWESOMENESS of your Cy-Kill!

    Awesome job! I remember following this as it went along the stages of WIP, and you've done a really great job.

    Awesome! I mean, Cy-Kill is one of the weirder looking Go-Bots, but you really captured him here, and made him look cool while doing it. Great idea, great choices.

    BTW I LOVE that first pic of Megs and Cy-Kill facing off... before Cy-Kill goes all Bruce Lee on him. :)

    Thanks for all of the comments. I'm surprised no one has mentioned his "cup hands". When he's holding them out, it's as though he's offering you a cup of coffee or something.

    Anyway, I've attached a few more pictures of the alt mode as promised.

    The cup hands are a little distracting, but it wouldn't be a problem if they were a different colour.

    Agreed AWESOME JOB!!! :thumbs2:  I have been watching this one with anticpation. I also like that Bruce Lee type picture too, the one good hit Cy-Kill get on Megs before Megs rends him limb from limb. :ev:
