    This was both higher-effort and lower-effort than my previous Psycho.

    Pardon the horribleness of the lighting, it's starting to turn to sunset here and all that.

    Cycle Man (or Cy-Kill if you must) is entirely made from a bootleg Combiner Wars Groove (vat?? no vey.....) with a resculpted head. A VERY MUCH resculpted head. Had to dome off the head and redo the face to get it closer to the original Machine Men/Go-Bots toy.

    ACK, THE OVEREXPOSURE---

    Bike mode. This is where the low effort comes in.

    Cykill at last! Looks absolutely brilliant. I assume you are doing your takes on the Gobots (even if it is some) as full on Deluxes?

    What are you using for sculpting putty? Doesn't look like it takes sanding great. I would recommend switching to aves 2 part apoxie or something of comperable quality.

    Other than that great repurposing. Makes a very nice CyKill alt mode is especially lovely!

    Milliput. Sands great, it's the paint that's the issue. Hand painting Tamiya flat white is a total pain in the arse.
