Well, I spent some time today working on the tabs on Swoop and Slug, and have made some improvements to the fit to the two of them. Could use some more tweaking, but getting there. Grimlock is always going to have a wonky leg ratchet, but it's not a dealbreaker.
On the whole, though, these guys do make me really happy, and I'm hoping the wait won't be too long for wave two!
Ok nooooooow I'm done.
Finished painting the hands, feet, and hip/rib fillers.
Bad momma right here!
The fillers look amazing in gray! What color did you use? Amazing work man, now go get prime!
Screamer looks like he's doing a handstand.
I think that blows away the PE kit! Great job ... might need to copy you. What paint did you use?
What do you find to be the breakable step for Hot Rod's vehicle mode? The windshield rotation?
Another figure I Cannot put down....
Hands on hips, pelvic thrust in assent, viking roar, Damn Yes
My favorite POTP figure so far.
He just looks so boss. His big shoulders give him a tough brutish look.
And this Autobot symbol is unfortunate Are they all like this? His alt mode is great I love how he can fit a Titan master inside.
To the designer who put holes in the bottom of the Decoy Suits' feet:
I didn't want to get any Prime Masters really, but I'm impressed with this little fellow. It especially makes sense for Micronus to be this small so it doesn't feel out of place. Not bad as a throwaway item to get free shipping.
Mine's like that too.
*last post was Dec.25, most likely over 50 pages*
Can't quote posts i like if i purposely avoid them, I'm certain everyone said what i'm going to say already, BUT I DON'T VISIT THIS SIDE OF THE THREAD THAT OFTEN!! GET OFF MY BACK, GRANDMAAAAAAA!!! Where did that come from?
So, i've recently got the voyagers, deluxes and PM's done, with no intention on leaders or legends (Aside from Slash. need 20 more) HELP ME!!!!
So... I tried SS's combined mode with the wings folding in AND out.... Hated both, and decided "F*** YOU!" and threw it into a wall. I noticed the wingtips flew off, and now it's MUCH better! stuffed the wings into the back, and kingscream awaits limbs.
the end..... or is it?
*dun dun DUUUUUUN*
Can we see more of that Soundwave
For Transformers, I don't think there is going to be much surprises at this year's Toy Fair. Because we basically know what's going to be till wave 4 from the leaks last summer. I highly doubt they will reveal wave 5.
There are some things we'll probably see. Abominus is a dead givaway, and we'll probably see Elita-1's combiner form and Infernos and, hopefully, get official names for Starscream, INferno, and Elita's forms (I am calling Starscream Tyrannus and Elita Elita Maxima to go along with Optimus Maximus).
I do agree the chances of Wave 5 are dim and most likely that will be for Comic Con
Minor/Repaint: - CW Megatronius (Leader Megatron Combiner Mode)
... the idea was to eventually find some speaker grates or mesh to put over the Rook wheels, but never found anything that'd work on the cheap. He never really leaves limb mode though, so I wasn't really motivated to finish him.
If add on kits for combiners have taught me anything, it's that they make me rarely want to play with the figure; too much undo-ing and whatnot.
Regardless, I do truly feel that this guy looks dope on his own; just a few paint tweaks and the correct posing and he's a beast! Literally.
As for paint:
- Hands and Feet were done in Tamiya XF-56 Metalic Grey and X-12 Gold Leaf
- Rib Fillers done in X-11 Chrome Silver and Gold Leaf
I figured the rib section could pick up on the silver from the crotch piece; wheres the hands and feet could use a slightly darker look to break it up a bit.
Suuuuuuper excited to replace the double limbs with the final two team members!
No, the legs and back of the vehicle snapping together. I really have to massage them into place.
You got to put an unhealthy amount of force to get that joint together. If your hand slips, you could risk breaking the bisep swivel. I’m going to leave mine in Rodimus mode until I can find an extra to display in hot rod/ truck mode.
