    And is it going to duplicate any of the features/gimmicks of the original?

    Looks amazing thus far!

    Give it head articulation and it'll be perfect - still dislike that Armada Tidal wave did not include better head articulation.

    Tidal wave was my favorite out of the Unicron trilogy.
    I'm glad someone is doing him justice.

    Made quite a bit of progress. Really, the main build is finished. Just have final detailing and painting.

    It does transform, but only to the combined battleship mode. Not dealing with the dark fleet mode.

    This is coming along very nice! I loved the original mold but the lack of articulated knees really hurt the guy. I fixed that on mine but I LOVE what you're doing here!

    Looks great. Always had a soft spot for Tidalwave. I remember feeling bad for him when he got beat up badly. Sorta like when you feel bad for the Hulk.

    Full set to follow. Need to get him sealed before I transform him, but I don't feel like waiting to post a couple of pics.
    This is the first time I've used an airbrush and am pretty pleased with the results. Certainly not a pro but it gave me a better finish than my other customs.
