    Looking good so far, love this mold! Just wondering, how are you planning to get the horns to pack away during transformation?

    DISASTER. Transformed him into alt-mode so I could paint the parts that are folded up in 'bot mode, lifted the wing tips up to paint the underside of his feet and they both snapped off. So, once he's painted he'll be staying in 'bot mode permanently as I'll have to glue them back onto his shins. Balls.

    Oh, the horns would have sat either side of the undercarriage but it won't matter now as he'll be perma-bot.

    Just a couple more paint touch-ups and the body is done. I did what @pluto suggested and picked up a cheap Kreo Blackarachnia so I can use the legs as the basis for his horns, so the horns and the cloak should be done in a couple of days. Hope to have this one boxed off by the end of the week, along with Fulcrum and Flywheels! :D

    Horns are on. Once the Green Stuff holding them on has cured I'll add more onto the structure of the horns to detail, then paint 'em up tomorrow. I can Future and Clearcoat then and add the cloak once he's all done.

    Horns are now covered in Green Stuff. I'll leave it to cure tonight then paint them tomorrow. A little bulky but, well, fuck it.

    Oh, I ended up just gluing the wings permanently onto his shins, so he won't transform fully now. Again, fuck it.

    I love you. In a platonic way of course. Not really. Yes really!
