    Ok so I have been planning this fella for over a year now and I have finally got to the (very) crude prototyping phase. It's my first scratch build so be gentle. Victor is a piece of futuristic field artillery in his alt mode. The cape Detatches to form the tripod mount.

    Thanks man :D  I will post some concept sketches and a short transformation video later tonight. I just got a good contact in a local model maker who has resin casting equipment :D  I may be able to get a nice custom made up, woo!

    It looks like your rough prototype is made of paper... Is it?

    Well I am going to custom mold all the parts from resin and assemble with joints scvanged from various toys but it will be 98% scratch built.

    But you'll be able to put it in water and it won't turn into soggy paper right?

    This looks really cool. I love the alt. mode. Based off your sketches, I think you should try to see if you could use one of the star wars crossovers toys to make this guy, unless you have your heart set on the custom resin parts. The series has a lot of big, round and more human-like arms and legs just like your sketches and would definitely be a good place to start looking for parts to build off of or reverse-engineer at the very least. Keep up the good work.

    Not a bad concept at all. For the cape that's going to be part of the transformation process, I would use the wings/cape from Crossovers Thor.

    That there's a solid plan you've got there! I'm a fan of paper prototypes as well. It saves a fortune in parts and styrene. I'm eager to see where this goes.
