    Wooot update time!

    last week i found some good pieces to continue working on the shoulder, and im loving the results

    More pieces were added to the Unicron body and one foot is started

    The head-on piece got a better visor (the other was pretty much wrong) and some extra details on the smaller head also

    Although not pictured, the Vjet is already looking good, and without extra modificationĀ“s yet

    I think you are doing a great job, but I have one question. I thought Star Saber's head was the one with the eyes and face plate? Or am I missing something?

    he basically had two heads, one being his normal head (wich in the anime became proportional to the Vjet), and a red helmet with faceplate

    The problem with the normal head, is that using the normal head, ends being extremely small (think RM Star Saber), so i though of making an extra head just for display purpouses :) 

    Eventually, ill remake the helmet

    saddly, i dont have current plans for Victory leo... mainly because i started this project way back in march... 2004

    That and im not sure what to use to make Leo... i used mainly pieces of a G1 KO for this one (Thanks Mr Roboto for that jet :D ), and i found that the arms and lower legs were pretty much the perfect size for an unicron body, only the original chest to some extend, waist and upper legs were unproportional to the original body :)

    The helmet face is done!

    The face still folds up like the original toy, i still need to cut the back of the helmet since is very long, also a way to connect the helmet to the vjet and to the smaller head (although i kinda have it figured already)

    Finally, yesterday i started something bigger... casting molds! i started with the elbow joint (a must for the project, the current piece is extremely fragile) and the resing is drying right now... wish me luck!

    At last, some pics of the Vjet, looking good so far

    [​IMG]

    Although i have a dilemma with the feet

    I can either leave them like this:

    [​IMG]

    Wich obviously looks weird in jet mode, or like this:

    [​IMG]

    Inside the legs (thanks to the minicon storage of Unicron). But in this case, i would need to remove the leg covers, hide the feet, and re-attach the cover

    suggestions?

    btw, i have reproduced succesfully, the shoulder joints! next its gonna be the extra helmet (for the blue/normal face)

    the face looks kind of off-set from the helmet. is that gonna be fixed when you reproduce it?

    yeah youre right, although im not gonna make a repro, ill try to fix it...


    Alright then, another good update

    First, i was able to find a replacement for the chest plate/tail fin, since the original were very fragile, and broken by now

    [​IMG]

    Obviously, needs major remolding, but the base is perfect

    Combined mode, back view, the legs still needs bulk, and i added details from a mini Op Op KO on the back of the upper legs, look at the Vjet pics to know the reason

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    The legs, those are Op Op leg covers/wheel base, just needs to be sanded and paint removed, some detail will be added later

    Well, ive been working the last couple of weeks. Too bad several of the earlier pics are down for now. Although not pictured, both feet are done, and are now in the process of getting paint

    Alright, lets start with the Vjet, is almost done:
    [​IMG]


    Brainmaster looking happy here:
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    I made a new handle for the gun, so Saber can hold it, as well Star Saber once i get the new pair of hands
    [​IMG]

    Now onto combined mode, first the big body, with styrene inside so the jet can slide easier (and without fear of paint being scratched)
    [​IMG]

    The new Tail fins/Chest plate is almost done:
    [​IMG]

    Respect the whole chest, i still need to change the thrusters, give more detail, etc

    The extra head fully painted:
    [​IMG]
