Not sure if this was mentioned before, but I am definitely getting a combiner hunter vibe:
A little weird that you checked, yes.
Those are all good ideas. Thanks. Now I just figure out what to use for those “spider legs”. If I had any skills in modding and customizing it would be a lot easier.
It can be done, no problem. My only worry is the clearance issues it will create in alt mode.
Your wry smile is ready sir
The back of the head will have a ball-socket that will connect to the peg. That, plus an additional ball-socket already in the base of Mocha/Nicee's neck will give her 2 point of articulation in her neck alone.
I've also started on modeling alternate hands
2 5mm post hands for holding weapons
2 sprawled hands for web shooting poses and-
2 wicked pistols ......... Cuz dual wielding guns is cool.
I'm thinking about an alternate, blacked out chest with the Decepticon logo molded in. Logo is already made.
FYI: I once tried ball sockets at both ends of the neck on a figure and I discovered that it's problematic. You can't get your fingers in under the head to grab the neck so it's difficult to get it facing the direction you want, since neither the chest nor the head can force the neck into the right direction.
Really liking what you’ve got going on here, well done.
I skipped on Nicee just due to not needing her, but Mocha here wears this mold and coloring so very well. I’m probably caving and putting a preorder in. It looks so good.
Looking good. Am definitely interested in whatever is released. Any plans for you to do the spider legs? I always figured that the legs would be partsforming but if a way could be figured out to store in alt mod that would be cool too.
The legs need to be 2mm thick to hold her weight and 3mm at the joints for stability and strength. Ideally the legs would be in undercarriage, so they would need to fold the up in such a way where they're not visible.
The engineering is easy, storage is the problem. I need to have a closer look at my Nicee in alt mode.
Hand protoforms complete, I'll finish the details, pose them and get started on the guns later.
It’s my replacement for MP Arcee, although more anime style than G1 style.
Nice. Looking forward to future updates.
Well, perhaps you can also try engineering it so the spider legs occupy the space where Nicee's shield used to sit? Less hassle to figure out how they'd bend under the car, and that section is pretty much where her backpack would be. You could probably replace the 2 "skirt ribbons" + rear lights) while you're at it.
Another config would be to attach 2 legs to the front; either by replacing the front fender pieces either entirely, or just the front wheel covers (they're attach to the front fender pieces via screws).
Because frankly I don't see much space for any extra parts to sit under the alt mode.
My friends, Can you please keep all the TF Prime Airrachnid Customization talk in it's proper section? Radicons Customs The same I'll ask for the NICEE talk.
It's just that it's really not on topic, and has nothing to do with updates about EX-01 Plus Mocha.
I'd Greatly appreciate it, thanks. I understand there's not much news right now. But there will be NEW news updates in October. Please be patient.
Nope.... I forgot all about this figure and was probably wasn't going to remember until it was to late. And it was because of this "airrachnid talk" that I've now pre-order not 1 but 2 figures. So I can upgrade one to airrachnid. And there's probably others that feel and did the same. It's promoting the product and keeping it relevant.
What should be done is someone should create a big firebird appreciation tread.
I agree with you. I'm new starting with collecting TF 3p figures and if no one was talking about Nicee or the airrachnid post I wouldn't of known Nicee and Mocha even exist. Now I want both of them.
It's your forum, not mine, I will comply
Big thanks to everyone interested in our work. I'm going to print a few things and take a few pictures.
See you all in the "Radicons Customs" section
So, any solid info on a release date?
EDIT: Autofill put in "Solus" instead of "solid". Now I want a sexy Solus Prime
I’ll see you over there. I agree with what others have said about my interest in the figure is mainly due to your Airachnid customization.
I wouldn't let one guy chase you away. I've enjoyed your Airachnid updates even though I have no intention of getting this figure.
Let us know if/when you start a thread in Radicons. Looking forward to the next update.
I'm not trying to chase anyone anywhere. However, what I am trying to do is stop Mods from coming in here when it can easily be avoided. That's all.
My intentions are pure of heart my friend.
