At first I thought her head was a little too big - but then I remembered her G1 figure also has a big head so it's ok . She turned out pretty damn cool! Nice job Mate!
love that used nightbeat parts to make minerva. G1 homage FTW!
Bloody fantastic; great original use of that mold, and love what you did with the arm/doors of the original toy. Looks like a toy Hasbro should have thought to make!
Or in anime tradition, Minerva can just CALL Override Big Sister for no apparent reason.
Thanks! The only problem I'm having with her is the same problem as Bumblebee; he's way out of scale with everybody else. Put her on a shelf with Arcee & BA and it looks like she could bludgeon the cons to death with her enormous noggin!
So I take you guys think she's cute then?
Well grab yer coneheads and get over here
I'm kind of surprised by this honestly, because I feel like I did less here than on override & slipstream, but it's still cool to hear, thanks!
I didn't think anyone read the notes! Thanks!
It IS pretty huge, but then so is BB's. I tried smaller heads and they just looked bizarre on this mold.
Ha! I never even realized. I just had this footless nightbeat left over from Road Rage. It's from Dormamu. Occasionally he comes over and throws scouts at me and screams "USE THAT IN A CUSTOM!"
Thanks! Yeah, I definitely wanted the doors on the shoulders, and the doors on the original mold weren't really doing anything...
upon looking at it further, I say i like it better than the Arcee one!!
Agreed. Absolutely love this! Must hunt around for this mold now to attempt it myself!
Very inventive. A non-obvious choice that actually works really well.
WOW..that is REALLY perfection. I wish the altmode was more Porsche'y, but other than that, you've captured her SO welll. If this is intended to be 'Animated Minerva' the you have in fact captured her 100% perfectly, and then some.
Wow, just so beautiful!
You've done it again t. You must have some kinda magic vision for making a bot look totally different than the original. That's some awesome engineering you did with the arms there. Using BB's old arm door panels to make Ratchet-esque shoulder wing/blade/things was just fantastic. It looks like you got the white paint nice and smooth too which is no small feat.
Nice work and thanks for keeping the TFA alive!
Thanks! I sort of cheated though. The white is spray paint.
Would people be interested in a video showing all the changes I made and the transformation? (it's largely unchanged.)
This is a really good custom!
Wow! Very nice!!!
i'm so loving this. must back track n catch up on some of these awesome customs on radicon
That is way too damn cool!!!! LOVE IT!
looks fantastic! great job, good paintwork, and nice head sculpt!
Screw animated, this makes for a great CLASSICS Minerva.
I WANT ONE!!!!!
and yes, I for one would love to see a vid/tutorial.
Minerva looks so adorable!!!
Damn thats nice. wish i had the orignal G1 Minerva.
