    I needed something to break up the monotony of doing Classics Megatron commissions, and I Thought of something that wouldnt' be too time consuming that I could do in-between steps of megatron. Its something that's been on my list of things to do for months now, a new GF-EZ (LOC). I have two WIP pictures for you. You should be able to tell who got chopped up, and who it'll be once its done. :ev:  I get an added bonus, due to the nature of the new character, the figure will actually have more articulation than the original!

    yep. Its GE-EZ Punch/Counter-punch. I had to chop the torso in half, add a pin(had to remove the spring for the cab part to fit the pin in the waist piece), cut the cockpit in half and I've put in styrene inside of there so that tomorrow I can put pins in one side and then you can peg the two halves together. he'll TF just the same, but if you wanna switch factions, you'll rotate the torso. the cockpit hides the other face/torso. I made the cockpit where you can take it into two piece so that you can more easily spin the torso all the way around. the only part of the two robot modes that'll be the same are the legs.

    So the entire driver and engine assembly will fold in half and unfold when transforming between factions?

    yes, the top portion of the car goes in half during transformation, and back together again after you're done. I will have the last of the physical mods done tomorrow. then I'll dye him into a darker shade of blue. I have to dye the upper thighs black (so that has to wait till monday since hobby lobby isn't open on sundays :(  but the amount of paint aps is actually pretty small.

    wow.. lots of enthusiasm.. :)  I hope it lives up to everyone's expectations. So far everything's going smoothly. I got the final paint aps and physical mods done today. the windows are metallic silver, so I'll need to wait a couple days before I put the clearcoating on the parts, and tomorrow I'll black dye the thigh pieces. As I mentioned before, I couldn't do that today cause Hobby Lobby was closed and I was out of that color dye. That part won't take but a few minutes though!

    I didn't take any pictures today, but I COULD take a pic of all the painted pieces if yall wanted to see them, otherwise I figured you'd rather see it all together whole in just a couple days. I have provided the three pictures which I used for my references though.

    Nice, Punch is one of my all time favorite figures. I have 2 of him one in each bot mode. Thinking of getting a third to keep in car mode. One day I hope to get a MISB one as well. Great job.
