    Well this was just a 2-3hr work and I think I'll b satisfied when I add hand articulation, neck (plus different head)... and somehow find a solution for the shoulders.. cuz its gonna b a though cooky 2 crack :( 

    UPDATE:
    Well since it's been 99% completed I thought I might show u guys sum details about how I did the articulation, hope this helps a small bit *ahum*

    Here the link 2 the finished work!!:

    He looks good man, as a suggestion, I would swap that head with an Alternators Skids to give it a cartoon-accuracy, but good stuff other than that (I think I might have one of those heads if you want it)

    I feel the Masterpiece definition is thrown around way too easily. This is a cool articulation of a G1 figure, but "2-3 hour work" hardly qualifies in my eyes.

    Thnx

    Nice good suggestion and dito offer will PM u, thnx in advance!

    I like 2 call it that cuz i only collect classics and MP's
    So who tells who that 2-3hrs is to low for a MP title??
    Plus its still a wip, like I said the shoulders r gonna gove me headaches hehe
    And finally even if it has 10000hr its never officially an MP ;) 

    Beside the rulez state that crits/discussion should be focussed on the work itself, but I'm glad its 4 my own collection since i'm less picky on my own stuff then the ones for clients :p 

    PS: normally i wouldn't take the times 2 respond to this but i brought my mobile 2 the crapper, so i had some spare time for BS :D

    Looks great buddy but I would have to say that i would call this masterpiece scale because it is still a g1 figure. I really love the way you add the ball joints discreetly. You will have a great collection on articulated figures when your finished. Your build speed just gets faster and faster. Keep up the good work.

    FR casted some awesome heads for this guy a few years ago.

    It was a mix btwn the original helmet and alternators smokescreen/silverstreak... I used one for my custom magnificus. Its looking great so far, never would have thot to use ball joins around his hips... I believe I used the same ones for his shoulders.
