Hi everyone. After sculpting for several weeks straight I wanted to do something different. I've been planning to paint the rest of my movie TFs for the longest time but I've always put it off. Along came Battle Blades BB, and I knew it was time to start again. For me, this mold is the best version of movie BB so far (at least, until TF3 comes along). There are still some parts that needed to be fixed to make it more movie-accurate but for now this will mostly be a repaint (with some added parts) until I see what the third movie has to offer. In bot mode, the hood on this BB is a bit too big. To break it up visually I added transformable floating 'collarbones'. These were constructed using a plastic card then painted. I prefer my TFs to be self-contained: no partsforming. So these transform with him. I then added the necessary decals. The license plate had an extra, unnecessary space in the middle; it made perfect sense at the time I was rendering it, and no sense whatsoever after I've attached it to the figure. I may yet change it at some point but for now it stays. I wanted a shiny, pristine alt mode and a weathered bot mode. I didn't want too much disconnect between the two so minimal weathering was done on the bot mode. I don't really care much for the battle axe. I only consider movie elements as canon. Since it was already there and I didn't really want to remove it, I figured I may as well play with the design. The resulting design is not movie-based. I opted instead for something that links it to the WFC weapons aesthetic. I loved simulating the different metals using paint. There are several contrasting and complementing sheens and textures on the figure but they don't register that well on cam. I'll see if I can re-shoot this again down the line. Thanks for looking. .
