    Looks pretty good so far.

    Dunno about the head.
    Someone else used a head from some Neo Shifter thing, I think.
    It looked pretty good.

    That's decent!!!

    Seriously, great job! Does it transform? Any way, for the head I keep thinking, a longhaul head (painted of course) with custom - cut plastic for the top of his head and his mouth.
    Or for the mouth you could custom Jetfire's beard. Good luck!!!

    Nice work! I really like the way you are pulling off the chest on this guy...as far as the head goes I continually have problems with this character because its so skeletal/insect like if you dont get all the under cuts right it looks like a blob..I would start with a very basic layer of green stuff on a neo shifter head, nothing too specific and gradually bulk it up with plastic card and more layers of putty.

    thanks for the tip. it doesnt transform. i wish i could have thought of a good way of doing that before putting all of the pieces on. im going to try to get the head done before next week and then paint him.

    thanks bonbon. its been about a year since i've even added to the thing, so im thinking of scraping him and starting over with a 1/72 scale mh-53 and maybe some bionicle or neo shifters for the skeleton. i finally have time to do something like this, so stay tunned for any updates
