    Movie styled SG Rodimus.

    When the Sidearm Sideswipe mold came out the idea came so obvious I wondered why no one else did it. This custom will be painted real fire style, which I think fits the movie line better. The classics version I did was kinda like a preparation, warming up of sorts to this guy.

    I rarely post wips but I just like to hear comments on the head sculpt I'm doing. I want to give him a recognisable Sideswipe base, but with an insectile/mandible-ley look movie Decepticons have, and incorporate the evil goatee look of the original SG Rod and his rascally grin.

    I imagine the goatee to be similar to the 'facial hairs' of existing characters like the Fallen, Jetfire, but on a lighter scale.

    Of course, it's still a wip and I'll be adding finer details to the sculpt as I move along. I love fruitful comments and advice :) 

    Update: Most of the bot parts are finished, and I'm halfway through the flamejob.

    That is so cool. I can also see something quite cat-like in the face.

    It's now hotter than before!

    Movie predacons should be quite interesting...Anyhoo the movie bots look pretty beastlike themselves, so we need not go too far to imagine Preds in real life.

    Wasn't going for cat-like, but ok! :thumb 

    Wasn't going for pissed, but ok! :thumb 
    I'm heading towards more of a sneaky grin, if bots could ever smile.

    Yep!

    REALLY like the fire effects a lot! Good choice of a figure too and interesting idea, I'm looking forward to the final character!
