    Hey Gang!

    When I first started this guy a loooong while ago, I was just going to make him super-poseable (thanks to inspiration by my good buddy & resident GOD of re-articulation, "WheelJack"The Sector70 Lab :thumb  ) but then as time went on I thought " why not make him look like who he's SUPPOSED to look like? " So now the ultimate goal is to make him as close as possible to IDW's artwork while still maintaining nearly the same Gun mode that he originally had. Still got lots to do yet, more joints, ND magnets & lots of Mud to add so keep tuned! :D 

    Here's the laundry list:

    Nightstick Xtras:


    1- New head sculpt

    2- Ball jointed neck

    3- Ball jointed hips w/ new waist section

    4- Ball jointed ankles

    5- Poseable toe tips

    6- Magnetically detachable "Mini Fusion Cannon"

    7- Hinged gun grip located on back

    8- Pivot joints located under main shoulder ball& socket joints

    9- Ball jointed hands

    10- Mini blaster for 'bot mode

    11- Resculpted chest & shoulders to match G1 style Nightstick

    UPDATES !!

    Got a fair bit more done on Nightstick here, more bulking out, details added & finally happy with the headsculpt (sorry bout the blurriness gang, tried to get in as tight as I could but this guys soooo small its was really hard)

    NEW w.i.p. version:

    In this pic, the two little gold dots on his left forearm are ND magnets that hold his Mini Fusion cannon in place:

    Getting the beginnings of the "Alt mode"

    [​IMG]

    You can see here how his smaller energy pistol magnetically "pops" onto the underside of the mini fusion cannon to become a laser sight in Gun mode. Again, the little gold dot is an ND magnet to hold the pistol in place. Also, how the Ordinance Hardpoint doubles as the laser sight housing in gun mode:

    & Some hero poses just for kicks! :D

    ........He cant wait to be someone's targetmaster!

    Cheers Gang!

    Thanks!

    What you're seeing as far as the arms & legs go is just the underlying structure that will be heavily built up upon using Apoxie sculpt. The end result will,hopefully, look like the IDW artwork! :D

    very impressive work so far. I can only imagine how fiddly it is to work on figures this size that have articulation. warhammer I can do, but this sorta thing's outta my league

    That's some very clever work right there...and at such a small scale too.

    Thanks for the compliment! & Your'e right, he does have that look doesn't he?

    Thanks man!

    Thank you! At this scale,its really not too hard, mostly just time consuming.....articulating warhammer minis, now THATS gotta be a toughie! If you can work on GW minis & give 'em poseability I'd be willing to bet that this wouldn't pose a problem for ya! Why not give it a shot? You might be suprised by what you can do! :D 

    Thank you so much! :D 

    :lol  I kinda figured you might say that my friend! There is the potential for this guy to be made available, I would just need to figure out a way to do it reasonably cheap!

    Oh and, updates coming soon! :thumb 

    Thanks & go for it!

    Thank you! He is kinda itsy bitsy aint he?

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the uber awesome compliments my friend! Great to hear from ya!

    Yeah,I really wish I could get back into the industry , I miss it a lot! I guess my best option these days would be to get on the shapeways bandwagon & release digital models to be printed out...problem is I know diddly-squat about 3D modeling ! :lol 

    Cheers Gang!

    Thanks my friend! I should ( hopefully) have some update pics up by the end of the weekend!

    I certainly wish Hasbro would step up & do some of the stuff I do... it'd save me a lot of work!!! :lol 

    Thank you very much! :D 

    Cheers Gang!
