    Fairly major update, I'm most of the way there on sculpt and engineering. I didn't feel like going all out on every coloured detail, but I think I struck a good balance. Goal is to have a final working version by next weekend which I can upload then, but I'm not going to commit to timelines as I'm bad at that.

    Anyway, enjoy some more photos

    Wow! That's impressive.
    Some of the parts could use a bit of gap filling, and working wheels would be great.
    Regardless, it's still pretty fantastic.
    The only thing stopping me from wanting to get one is that I don't really want her to have an earth mode. Now if it could be modified into a version of her normal alt mode...! ;D

    The colors really help make the upgrade flow naturally with the base figure. :D  It's making me want to pick up an ER/Kingdom Arcee to convert her into this.

    Nice work. A shame we never got an official Arcee like this.

    I really like the way the MP version is turning out. (The Earthrise conversion is nice too).

    Its really cool how this replaces the car shell and turns it into a functional and transformable car (even if its an 80s mustang :lol :puke: ). Seriously though, this matches the comic perfectly. Future kits like this would be cool to see.

    Do I see some resin parts on the MP looking one? Looking stellar!

    Yooooo, been a minute hasn't it. Holy hell your whirl looks great!

    Yeah I've got a mate to try some resin parts for me. The detail is beautiful, I'm considering a mixed FDM resin solution for the final figure. I want it to look as good as possible because since this prototype I've AMPED up the articulation

    Edit: in retrospect I probably should have shared this in the original thread
