    I haven't decided yet which collection to put him with. Technically the mold is Bayverse. But i really don't mind him sitting with my other CHUG bots. and until they release a true CHUG Cosmos, this may well be it. It's a WIP, as he needs some serious cleaning, and head mods. Once the head is done, he will be truly recognizable as Cosmos. I'm also working on making his two-toed foot a single shoe-like foot.

    This project came about when i took Sunspot's wings for my Cloudraker project. I carefully cut them so as not to cripple Sunspot. Then once I looked at him, I saw that he had a small spaceship look to his alt mode.

    Enjoy! Again, i wanna mention he needs some cleaning up...

    That looks great, actually. I like the rounded-ness of the alt. mode, and how it manages to retain an easily identifiable direction; it's clear which end's the front and which is the back.

    While i don't think the robot mode is yet perfect for Cosmos, it certainly looks cool and the V-shaped chest armour makes me think this would work great for superhero themed customs. Samus Aran sounds great as well.

    wow ya know what, you're right, that could totally be Samus Aran's ship.

    I agree that the robot mode is a bit of a departure for Cosmos. I might be able to cook something up, but if not, i'm ok with it. The head will really make it.

    I had thought about this a long time ago but lost interest. This is well done Stu, very nice. It's gonna look even better when you fix it up, I know it.

    Holy crap. Yeah it may need a few touch ups, but you my friend are brillant. I would have never seen that in my own head, and you pulled it out like magic.

    I'd almost rather you go for the Samus Ship & try Cosmos on another mold, personally.

    Yeah, it would require some styrene work - maybe Cosmos was a better idea...

    Some updated pics. Still needs a li'l touching up. I gotta get me some frog tape.

    Also, I am working out what to do about the feet. They will be changed.

    I LOVE how rotating the existing head gives it an entirely different look. If I could ever find Sunspot, I'd do that to differentiate him from Skystalker.

    And as a bonus it emulates the way classic Cosmos's cap sticks out in alt mode.

    well bear in mind, i knocked off the ears, and carved out little indents for the eyes. But yeah, it's a start, most definitely. Thanks for looking!
