    That's super cool! A lot of great creativity went into this for sure. I really like the holo-driver too. Looks like that Rei figure fits the bike very well. One question though... Is the yellow paint all over the rider's face sides intentional for some particular effect? I ask because it doesn't seem like it'd be from rushed or careless work considering it's about the only place I see paint out of place.

    Thank you for bringing that to my attention. I didn't even realize! :eek: 

    I was able to rub it off with alcohol. Now that I look at the photo again, I see that I didn't properly close the gas tank and it's bugging the hell out of me! :mad: 

    I might have to do another pass and touch up a few spots that were rubbing during transformation (just the nature of the beast) before I can update the pics. I am also planning on making a transformation video as was requested, so I'll knock them all out at once.

    Oh, hah, I have had that happen before too. Things all look great but then when I see the pics I took there is some glaring thing I missed or screwed up. At least it was just on the holo-rider so you won't need to re-take all the pics. I really hate when that happens!

    Here's a before and after of the Sadie's face after I stripped off the shoddy paint job. The hair was also completely redone. I can't believe my poor choice in the first pass. I also painted her eyes as well. I felt that the default eyes gave her a resting bitch face.:D

    Well I understand the misunderstanding here. I did mean Arcee's legs. Thank you for the response though!

    It's all good man. I got you; Arcee's legs measure 3-2/5" (I am using a dial caliper and it gives me tenths). So just shy of 3-12".
    Thanks man! What looks good to the naked eye doesn't turn out the same behind the camera. Those beady little eyes gave me HELL!:D 
    :lol

    Decided to take a higher definition shot. I think the last one looks kind of blurry. Everytime I take a new photo, there's more little imperfections that keep poking out at me so I'll probably spend more time on the little details in the future but I need to take a break from this one lol.

    Thanks man, that means a lot!:) 
    Thank you!

    I absolutely love it. Still personally like your Blue and Pink version. I might revisit mine. I am far better at customizing now. But its absolutely Ace's my dude. Has a very Overwatch Mercy vibe. But the bad ass dialed up to an 11. With the tire Axe... Genius!

    You know, if you had several version of this mold (looking at you, Hasbro) you could configure it however you wanted, and then do other repaints. White/Gold, Black/Red, Blue/Pink.

    Get on it, Hasbro!

    I know what you mean. Part of my process was correcting alignment errors from 5 years ago. I guess OCD grows with age.
    Haha yeah! One of my first choices was Phoenix or Dark Phoenix from Xmen because of the glowing wings. To think, with the bird mode too...o_O
