I've been toying with the idea of creating my own custom transforming figure. I don't yet know whether it would be a modification of an existing toy, or a complete scratchbuild. All I know is that I lack both the patience and skill to do much painting. I've been toying with the idea of making a custom Vehicle Voltron. The lions have been made several times over, and Mattel will be making even more Lion Voltron toys, both with the classic '80s design and with the new design seen in VOLTRON FORCE on NickToons. Matchbox's old deluxe Vehicle Voltron, also known as Voltron I, was cool, but like many transforming toys of the 1980s, it was a statue, and it had several quirks that I've never liked. So... does anyone have tips for first-time, want-to-be customizer? Thanks in advance!
