    Good evening. I don't have any modeling or painting ability, but the awesome people on this site made making a Leader Fallen from 2 Voyagers look easy. So, I gave it a try. Thanks for the inspiration.

    I didn't intend this guy to ever transform, but my son kept insisting that he could, so I gave it a try.

    I would like to say nice job. Problem is the pics don't do him justice. Some simple pics showing Fallen from a few open angles and maybe a side by side comparison shot or two would be great. I'm actually curious how you did the legs. Thanks

    No, problem. I'll take some more pics this weekend. Thanks for the feedback.

    As far as the legs are concerned, I used the upper thighs of both Voyager Fallen entirely. It looks like some people were cutting these up, but I connected them together and use the original hip hinges for both the new hip hinges and the knees.

    Okie doke. I'm not a photographer, so I apologize for the quality. Here he is "transforming." There is no partsforming or anything. He just kinda collapses on himself.

    1. Rotate torso 180 degrees.
    2. Flip nosecone down, open Chest Flap, Collapse shoulders into chest, rotate shoulder horns flat
    3. Rotate Hands, shift forearm guards over hands, shift calfguards over calves.
    4. Rotate hips 180 degrees, putting head between legs.
    5. Lay flat, twist ankles 90 degrees.

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    Just 2 Voyager Fallens. I didn't use any other figures or toys. It was very trial and error, so I don't remember what exactly I did. There was a lot of cutting and trimming Fallen parts. If there is interest for it, I can try to remember what I did. Or take more pictures of specific joints and what not.

    I like what you did with the legs. How did you connect the head to the upper chest?

    Well, his head is just the Voyager Fallen head+shoulders (with everything removed) stuck onto an additional upside-down shoulders where I attach the leader arms. This gives you a swivel/rotating head. Then, you connect that (screws, etc) to an upside-down Voyager waist and stick that on top of a rightside-up Voyager waist, which gives you waist rotation.

    v - Head + shoulders upside down
    ^ - Rotates on shoulders rightside up
    v - Connected to waist upside down
    ^ - Rotates on waist rightside up

    None of this is very elegant, but I'm not like the guys here that can sculpt and paint and all that. I just thought I'd take pictures, since I don't think I've seen anyone try to transform any of the awesome Leader Fallens I've seen. I could be wrong, though.

    So you used screws then. Very nice. I always wonder how people connect that part to the upsidedown waist.
