    Rear folding flap has moving parts, requires pins/assembly, it's not something that can 3D print as a finished part.

    Same here. I am ready to order 6. That is such a kick ass mod. Almost made me forget they left the back of the wings off.

    Finally got this guy from Baba during the last 20% off sale. The nitpicks that I read online and saw in images immediately disappeared in hand. What an awesome bot. I haven't transformed it yet, but I'm excited to put it through the paces. Cannot wait to get Lighting and Skycrow (just shipped). Very happy with this purchase and I'm happy to finally move on from the MP-11 mold for the big three.

    It's back in the cabinet with the dark face back on. Is a close up good enough? The shadows make the face slightly darker too

    If ppl can print out and build full Magnus armour I'm sure they could cope with a flap build :)

    Been super busy these past few weeks, but this guy turned out much better than expected! Customized with 2x Red SMD eyes and 2x Warm White SMD for cockpit/chest. Used modified KFC Hot Rod hands and also sculpted a new face with an x-acto knife. Did a quick mod to Sunstorm's coronation kit to make it fit as well.

    Amazing work again. For the KFC hands, was the mod just cutting away at the join so the hands fit?

    How did you mask the eyes?

    Thank you! Yes, just a simple trim at the mushroom pegs to do the job. It's a permanent mod, so there's no turning back to the old stock hands.

    I carefully painted around them. No need to mask. But if u want to mask them cover them with a little silly putty that u can buy at Hobby lobby. When u r done painting remove silly puffy with tweezers.

    I wonder if Maketoys will do a coronation set for this guy. The Takara set fits well enough, but it'd be nice to have one that fits properly.

    I don't think I've seen someone attempt a con symbol sticker on the jet nose, so here's my attempt - it's a bit small, but it stays on fine during transformation.

    Meteor's jet mode doesn't get much attention, but the reds and amber canopy really pop against that lovely non-swirly shiny gray plastic! And yes, I like my con symbols facing the same direction :p

    I'm totally with you on that. It's a good example of when I'm happy to sacrifice cartoon accuracy for something to look better. Those upside down symbols just look wrong to me in bot mode, accurate or not.
