    Do you think this digibash comparison (I colored it in Photoshop) looks good enough to turn into a custom paint job?

    Time to scrape off the blob of red paint on his chest and put this one on him instead!

    I laid down 2 layers of packing tape strips onto computer paper and printed this. One layer for the second to stick to, the second layer to use for the Autobot logo.

    Once I cut the logo out I'll apply it onto this guy!

    I dont have him yet but from what I've seen, all he really needs is wrist swivel, waist swivel, and forward/backward movrment in the feet. Otherwise he's just about perfect.

    Edit: And new paint of course.

    Dangit... while cutting the logo out the red ink smeared. Lolol

    Will reprint again, and apply an additional layer of tape over the print to protect the ink.

    I wish my printer was more sharp, but I guess this is the best it can do. At least some of the features in the logo are distinct!

    With a nudge and a little more persuasion from several members, I decided to mold and cast the sword.

    Fortunately (or unfortunate as it happened), the handle broke at the cross guard. I've been wanting to remake the handle anyway because I wasn't completely satisfied with the design... so, I attached the stock one from the short sword to it and now I'm going to mold it and make a limited run of the castings. Tada! Maybe 10 for now?

    I should be able to do the first casting by the end of next week, which is already spoken for by a forum member.

    Current progress on the sword mold. Pouring the second half of the mold today, and I will do the first shot after the July 4th holiday break!

    Wow. I already thought the Voyager figure was a huge improvement over that craptastic Leader from AOE... But with those details... That figure is just amazing.

    Holy crap! That's amazing! You managed to make this toy desirable...at least for me, anyway.
