    Hi all!! I found a KO Robot Masters Victory Saber set at the grocery store. Thought I would show off some pics before I started in on them. All will get more detailed paint apps.

    [ATT]17235[/ATT]
    Star Saber bot mode and Victory Leo lion mode. Star Saber will get knees and possibly bicep swivels.

    [ATT]17236[/ATT]
    Little Saber is gonna get some articulation!

    [ATT]17237[/ATT]
    Victory Leo will get some joint work and some knees hopefully.

    [ATT]17238[/ATT]
    Star Saber will try to get expansion joints at elbows and waist to make starship mode more streamlined.

    I hope the holidays coming up will allow me to do some work on these guys. They are fairly simple but pretty cool.

    UPDATE 11/12/2008

    Saber has had some improvements in the articulation department!!

    [ATT]17282[/ATT]
    Head and waist swivel, ball and socket elbows, hips and knees!

    [ATT]17283[/ATT]
    still needs a bit of work, ahoulders and alignment.

    The joints came from the little guys from the neo-shifters. More later!!

    The tags on the left side should be [ATT] and on the right side you can guess what it's supposed to be cuz if I type it it won't show

    I was able to get some work done on Saber today but I didn't think to take pictures. None of the work on him is too difficult so I think some after photos should be adequate.

    I will try to get pics up later gotta go help my boys with homework!!

    I have a couple sets of this exact KO set.

    I had planned on repainting one set into Scourge(RID) and Nemesis Breaker,then they're combined mode would be Nemesis Prime.

    Never started on it though.

    I'm loving the work you did on Saber. I picked up a bunch of these sets just to bash that guy into a head master. He's the perfect size, as the same type of transformation as most of them, and his head even fits into the slot in the g1 headmasters!
