Well, after being in a funk, i've finally come back to finish some projects and start a new one. I finally found a good mold for Cutthroat so Abominus will be finished sometime soon. And i've also started on Animated Defensor Now, it's a bit odd to paint a figure while major mods are yet to be done. I had intended Hotspot to be a simple repaint/headswap but I wasn't happy at all. The molds being used in this build are- Ani Wreckgar-Hotspot Ani Blackout-Blades Ani Rodimus-Streetwise Energon Towline-First-Aid Ani prowl-Groove Hotspot will be replaced by a completley new Wreckgar as the black is too shiny and the blue too deep for my taste. I might have to have the legs be removeable for the alt mode or go for a similar shell to Wreckgar. The head is perhaps a bit too big also. Energon Towline makes a surprisingly good fit for the Animated asthetic. His narrow thighs, small waist and broad upper body work and the alt-mode is exaggerated enough. Swindle's head works well but I may end up getting some custom heads made for these guys. The other guys will have varying degrees of mods . Blades head will sit on top of his body rather than be on his cheast as with Blackout. He'll be the largest of the bots but he has a surprisingly convincing alternate arm configuration. definitely frenzy-Rumbling Defensor. UPDATE- Here's the alternate transformation for Defensor's Right arm. The general shape and proportions on Blackout really lend themselves to being an arm. Hoping that he's not too heavy. New pics of 80% complete Blades. Used a Gundam pen to do some finer detailos but it really went wrong. Might need to do some cosmetic surgery to the chest.
