    Every year or two I do some improvements on my Unicron. After watching TFTM again with my kids today, it was time to get back at it.

    I noticed the orange circular area in the front was much larger than just that small round mouth part the toy had and there were a lot more "teeth" or whatever to the actual mouth part too, so I did some new sculpting and painting to make my Unicron more accurate and the sculpt a bit cleaner. Also took the opportunity to even out the tones of orange on the figures since last round of updates I did were all in a much darker orange, and added some gunmetal under the big orange area to break up all the white I had there.

    And robot mode for those that don't remember or haven't seen and want to.

    This keeps getting better.
    You should make updating this figure a Christmas tradition.

    Awesome looking Unicron. Looks like he stepped right out of the movie. Well done! :thumb

    Damn that looks so good, the darker orange def made a big difference! Lovin what the little spikes, black-wash & new teeth did for it.

    What did you make your little spikes out of? And the teeth?
