    Work in progress scratch built transformable Idw Anode
    I wanted to see if I could build an entire figure in just 3 days, this is after the first 12 hours so far.

    If I don't make my deadline I'll finish it later.
    More to come.

    I saw your work first on the Transformers Discord server, but to see it again on here is amazing! I can’t wait to see the results.

    Dude! You've almost made a whole figure in 3 days. That is impressive. I can't wait to see the finished result.

    Looking good! I'd love to do a TFA anode but it's beyond my scratchbuilding skills

    since the waist pivot and ab crunch are in the chest, there's no way to peg her chest in without locking the posability. It was getting really annoying dealing with the chest when posing with just a tensioned hinge so I added a spring to keep it in place 1000010638.jpg 1000010639.jpg
