    This adds the earthmode parts to the list of possibiltys with the kits.

    Great job! Do you think you can make an Animated Elita One though?

    Due to the way I've designed these kits when I do a new character it really depends on the underbody shape (or protoform if you will) they have. If they share the same 'protoform' with more than one character it makes it more worthwhile for the new sculpt. (hense making the stinger bots first, lots of bots, same body)

    Given that Elita one has the same 'protoform' as Blackaracnia, Arcee, Dragstrip and Minerva shes a good candidate for doing soon

    Just decided I'm gonna have a go at making a transforming bot.

    Not saying who yet, but he is from Animated and I don't think I've seen a completed version of him yet.

    Stay tuned

    [Edit]
    The mechanism that I though was going to be the hardest part to work out seems to be working pretty well...its given me some sleepless night going over and over how things might fold up.

    I'll post images of the foam board mock up as soon as I finish it.

    Very nice! The kits that I got from you are marvelous! Earth mode kits adds more awesomeness to those maquettes.

    I understand... you are doing another amazing job and I'll need to buy more kits.

    Keep giving this kind of problem to us, Animated fans :)

    Glad to hear you got the kits ok.

    Tell you something, I'm enjoying 'constructing' the transforming bot ;)
