    I suspect they'd display better with the feet flipped around the other way.

    You know what though - that Black Decepticon deco hat makes me want Fortress Maximus in Nemesis Colours now.

    According to Mr.Yuki's tweet with Fort Max w/captimus, a modification (to Captimus, I assume) is required to put the cap on the Max. In case anyone is going to try the same.

    This makes me less excited. I'm all thumbs when it comes to mods. :/

    I know what you mean. Sitcking a washer to black Rodmius' knee was the pinnacle of my modding.

    and I don't and will not have a Fort Max :(

    Oh well, saves me $30-something I guess.

    And speaking of crippled Rodimus, I'm still waiting to hear back about custom replacement knees. When I hear something I'll give you a shout.

    Kinda neat on Fort Max, but I still like the popsicle bots better.

    If there was a way to curve the bill and remove that stupid sticker (yes I condidered Repainting but my first problem trumps that) I would get one for Max

    I am sure you'll love your capbot once you have him in hand. If not, please don't be mad at me for being sure.

    That would be awesome!!


    He didn't, and I asked him if it's a complicated mod. If I get a reply I'll report here :)

    That blows. Oh well, I didn't realize the cap could autotransform, so it should be cool anyway.

    I'm not going to be cutting anything on Max, no way.

    Introducing Capticon!

    It's not the smallest Transformer I own, but it's definitely the smallest package...

    [​IMG]

    Lots of sculpted details, both inside and out.

    [​IMG]

    Note the pantographed lines representing stitching:

    [​IMG]

    "Baby Mickey's a Decepticon sympathizer?!"

    [​IMG]

    Transformation's fun, and the robot mode is awesome!

    [​IMG]

    The face sculpt is particularly sharp, and has a lot of character to it.

    [​IMG]

    Despite the kibble and the spring-loaded parts, his articulation is fabulous.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Oh, and the head is on a long double-jointed neck with a ball joint, offering the most incredibly-articulated neck since HFTD Lockdown!

    [​IMG]

    "Hey big guy, what happened to your hat?"

    Given his 5mm grip, I dug through my parts bin and found some practical weapons for Capticon:

    [​IMG]

    They're the right size and shape to be stored in his alt. mode.

    [​IMG]

    I'm loving this little guy more and more. :D
