    Know this has been done before. or something like it anyhow, but thought I'd throw this up here. Been working on him for a little while and am pretty happy with how he turned out. I was going to get a G1 toon based head made (still might) but I realize this particular mold is how his toy was, not his character in the toon. For that, you'd have to not only change his head, but his cockpit as well, flip his wings for bot mode, and alter the legs. Figure I'll leave that version up to Wikkid and Spurt, as they're doing the best damn version of the toon character that I've ever seen. So for this guy, basically kept the Macross figure the same, just repainted the chest shield a gloss red and added a reprolabel, repainted the super parts a deep red and custom labels to the rockets, then panel-lined the whole thing, as well as added new fully articulated hands. Hope you like him, and as always comments are welcome!

    Very awesome man! the panel lining is top notch! I'm also using this robotech figure on one I'm doing, but I wanted to give it an alt head to spice things up a bit, yours is definitely a source of motivation! thumbs up! :)

    Very, very cool. Nice use of the 1/60 Wing Gundam Zero hands.
