    Back at it again, I just can't get enough of these big guys, lol. I'll actually be doing two of these. One for myself, and one for a collaboration with Frenzy_Rumble.

    I've still got some touching up to do, but here is Gran. He has articulated legs (same as FM Spike), but this one uses more of the shadow warrior base, meaning articulated waist and arms, and the head can turn side-to-side as well. He's about 85% finished, he should be complete by the latter part of the weekend.

    Seconded!

    Though, OTOH, I've allowed the MetalHawk Wonderfest kit to define the defacto-standard for pretender-forms in my collection (i.e. Microman/1:18 scale figures to represent the "human" {etc.} form).....which would be an easy solution, and please ME, if no one else ;) 

    And let me also say that Gran looks GREAT! The Shadow-warrior-as-headmaster formula is a genius one!

    Here's a good shot of the Pretender shell from the Masterforce 'toon. This is the look that I'm going for:

    Here's where the Pretender shell stands so far (big thanks to Aprim for the base suggestion):

    Gundam Exia, that would be. What scale, i don't know. By the articulated Hands, i would guess 1/100 scale, which is about Ultra class to TF fans (give or take a couple inches). Judging by the clips on the things between his shoulder and torso, and the fact that there are no little protrusions inside the two gaps for the antenna, it can't be 1/144, and a PG at 1/60 would be too big.

    Actually, looking again, it must be the MG. Look at the hands. It's last three fingers are one piece. Only MG's have those hands. PG's have all 5 digits separate.

    Am awaiting what you'll do with this, Payton. The exposed clips and missing part to finish his GN Drive leave me thinking that you'll be adding a lot of parts to him to recreate the cartoon accurately, and if your Fort Max is anything to go by...

    ...well, let's just say this has got to be good.

    Actually the scale is the 1/60 scale(I forget the scales name at the moment) which is about the height(roughly) of a leader figure. Very nice choice sir.

    payton, the main thing I'm seeing is that you're really pushing your own limits here. It's really nice to see someone create some really nice work and just keep pushing themselves. My hat's off to ya, man :thumb
