    I made the add-on parts for PotP Orion Pax to improve its alt-mode. IMG_1266.JPG

    I didn't see an easy way to make the parts transform and be part of the figure, but I found a way to hide them in the bot-mode. (When it becomes Optimus Prime, I can hide them inside Optimus's legs.)

    They are made of plastic plates and sticks.

    It's partsforming, but the details are done really well indeed :thumb

    I've been working on a new version, and I just finished the first prototype: IMG_1283.JPG
    In the bot-mode:

    Honestly, even tho' it's partsforming, I prefer the first version just because visually it's cleaner. If there was a way somehow however to flip the new version so that the various swivels were facing inward to make for a more continuous unbroken wall would be aces. Great work!

    Love this - a simple idea that makes a massive difference.

    Thanks. Red and blue are from Gunpla Markers (I used a brush to paint). Silver is Tamiya Paint Marker Chrome Silver.

    Just a quick update. IMG_1292.JPG
    I tweaked little details everywhere, including its transformation mechanism. The crotch movement is still a little restricted, but better than before.

    I'm almost done with this side, and I'll be working on the other side this weekend.

    I still like my original partsforming solution, but I just need to get this out of my head;)  so I will continue till the end.

    I have no personal stakes in POTP, but I just wanted to comment that I had no idea what piece you added until your second pic. That's how well done and factory your addition looks

    The second side is done. Soon I will be painting.

    The side panels are folded nicely.

    When I make it into Optimus Prime, I can of course leave them there.

    I just cancelled my Takara Optimus preorder, in favour of the be Nemesis version. I hope these come out for that version, too.
