    ROTF Sideways new feet - Updated!

    Im in love with this mold and so far ive painted several details from the real Audi R8, but i still need better CGI pics to detail the robot mode (the concept piece that surfaced yesterday helps alot!)

    But anyway, im making bigger feets by simply adding epoxy and carving the details later. What do you think so far?

    I might try to improve the hands too...

    Update: New pics, ready to paint!

    yup, basically i glued the styrene while in car mode just for that, before cutting or anything, once dryed, epoxy was added and modeled. I still need to check the clearance for the horizontal spikes though

    Too bad thereĀ“s no more space for even bigger feet

    I like the way you angled the headlights. I have them the same way. It simply looks better.

    Yeah, Sideways can looks cool with the proper transformation :D 

    Too bad the rear lights cant be rotated and put on the chest for extra accuracy...

    So far,so good. It doesn't appear to be the most accurate mold Hasbro have done for ROTF but it looks nice with a bit of extra work.

    Dang, i do not like how inaccurate and rushed the mold looks, but with all the praise i hear for this mold i'll just have to pick it up.
    Feet are shaping up nicely, though they're actually his toes. The wheels are his feet/heels. You're gonna turn the toes into more natural feet though? Should be cool too.
