    UPDATED: New pics of progress below


    I was never happy with Armada Unicron's noggin.

    With the 2010 Unicron out, it really motivated me to finally tackle this. Afterall, why buy another Unicron when I can customize my own?

    The first stage of this planet killer's face lift is pictured below. Work to follow will be the addition of the brow area, filling in the cheekbones then the finishing work.

    LMK what you think.

    Thanks....Hmm...that reminds me, I've been having some ideas for a new Devy head too

    That's the goal. But what a PITA to reference, if you watch the movie, he looks different in almost every frame! I ended up looking at the model sheet as well as more or less going from the gut, trying to get the "feel" of him right.

    Plain old JB Weld Kwik Plastic, found at any Home Depot

    Thanks!

    Thank you sir!

    When I decapitated him for this I got to thinking, after playing the floating head in space, there should be a unicron head display case.

    Great to see what your doing with this. Can't wait until it's done!

    LOL, I never got that in season 3....Metroplex's eyes would be WAY too small! Thank goodness for constantly shifting size continuity.

    Season 3, Starscream's ghost is commanded by the disembodied Unicron to obtain new eyes for him, the unwilling donor was Metroplex.

    Thanks...Hmm...I display case..interesting idea.

    Thanks! for some reason the 2010 version looks cute to me...dunno why, another reason I wanted to take a crack at it.

    Thank You.
