    Nitro Zeus's head if you look it closely is really similar to the boss. It looks almost like the designers cut the horns off and put an eye in the middle. I'll paint over the eye, but I'm not sure about the horns, or even if I'll do them since they were a bit goofy looking and would likely be really fragile. Plus I just stabbed myself in the calf with an exactor knife cutting the Zeus horns off so my brain is a little foggy lol

    I've never used an X-Acto knife before, but I'm sure it's supposed to stay out of one's leg. :p 
    Seriously though, I hope you get better.

    for the head thats easy
    cut the horns and glue them in the right position, then paint the center eye over and unpaint the tiny ones

    Woah, on both of these you've managed to get the nosecone pointing up in a CGI-accurate way! Was there heavy modding to do this, can they still transform?

    Great paintjob on Nitro Zeus, look forward to seeing how you come along with KSI-Boss :)

    The nose cones are just on a hinge (No pin holding them onto the joint) so I just popped them off and flipped them around. As for the KSI Boss...
    And yes, they both transform IMG_3835.JPG

    Ahh thanks; I'm glad its an easy fix, his silhouette looks SO much better like that!

    Nice job repainting the face, looks like a whole new mould! Amazing how versatile the sculpt is, once given a chance to shine ;)

    Well in the concept art Nitro Zeus's head was just the KSI boss head without the hammer head horns and 1 eye instead of 4, so it was easy to do
