    Update 6/28: WIP redesigned BLURR

    Im just making this thread to keep a track of the progress I'll be doing on this WIP. Heres the original thread for info on what he's mainly made of:

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/240062-wip-cybertron-mode-blurr.html

    He's not an homage to the original, but a total redesign, I'm going for a mixture of cybertronian/wipeout/rocket car..thing...thats fast. I've added a lot of detailed bits and filled in most of his chest area, also gave him articulated fists from hacking up those of a tftm stockade figure, so that they can still rotate. I plan on filling those 'wings'/nosecone with engines of some sort..Ive just been playing around with styrene (as you can see)..any C&C is welcome..I just borrowed this camera in hopes it would've been better than my webcam..but it refuses to focus.
    Thanks

    I like it and how you've blended things from so many different figures. But, in my opinon, if any autobot is gonig to have wheels in his feet, it'd be blur. i know your going for more of the cybertron version hover vehicle, but those blackout feet just don't sell speed to me.
    That really is my only negative, and I really do like how you've made something completly new here. I look forward to seeing more of this.

    Randy!

    Thanks everyone.
    Bigbot3030 - I know what you mean about the blackout feet, initially I was going to go with more of a classic one piece look, but I also like the way they look in his alt mode, like little canards/air brakes/awesome sticky out things..so I decided to make the sacrifice..They really do help him stand well though, so that's a plus.

    Still have a good amount of detail I want to add to it before..the dreaded painting..I think Im going to have tp practice on a few of my other figures before going on to this guy. stay posted for updates.
    Thanks again, Im glad it caught your eyes..lol

    YEAH, practice on some spare bots first. What you have going there is too cool to mess up wiht paint. painting is one of my least favorite things becasue you can have the most amazing scrathbuild ever, but if the paint doesn't look good, 90% of people wont' notice.
    i hear ya about the feet and understand where you're going with it. the IDW version has wheels for feet and i'm not 100% sold on his look either. Do something different, but more importantly, what YOU want to do, and have fun! Thats what made my "Peel-Out Prime" such a rewarding experience.
    Good luck!

    Randy!

    Update 6/28

    after the suggestion on the legs, it just keep eating away at me..lol..then he started to look a bit short..soo..i took the spare powerglide i had that was in pieces and attached his legs at the knee..luckily the hole size it exactly the same size as the blackout knee. I also added the 'engines' in the nosecone/wings section, and added styrene strips for detail on the robot body, and filled in his shoulders. just a bit more cleaning up and I think Im done with him until Im ready to paint. He's pretty tall..as you can see with the pic beside tfa blurr.

    Now this is what I call a kitbash. This is really coming along nicely and I love the use of the various figures/parts. Definitely looking forward to more updates on this--keep up the great work!
