    That face has to go. It's too Dot Matrix from Spaceballs and needs to be more robo Lena Headey.

    Been working on the body, and figuring out how the transformation will go. I'd been kicking around the idea of streaming through Twitch or something while doing this stuff, but just creating the light pink shoulders was a 24 hr process that started yesterday afternoon. I don't think anyone really wants to watch that.

    I've got her torso rounded out to a point I feel good about. I think I'll revisit her face next, before moving onto her arms and lower body.

    Impressive! So she will be a bit taller than your Blackarachnia? Probably a bit taller than the IF Arcee remold that we currently have?

    Thanks!

    9.8cm tall is my target. To me it looks like she stands as tall as the top of OP's chest windows, and that's what that would be for MST Prime.

    I don't have IF's Arcee, but I recall she's a short one. I use DX9's Arcee, who is 9.2cm at the head.

    Yeah that's pretty cool; I use the IF Elita currently, but she is displayed with my MST Inferno- kind of listening to him carry on about Firestar while Red Alert tries to force himself into the conversation.

    Speaking of Firestar... Any plans for her, Moonracer or Chromia on the horizon? That would really make my S2 display POP!

    I love your work, man. Looking forward to picking up a number of your items this year!

    Oh, you know it. I love me some femme bots, and they're sorely unrepresented.

    I started with Elita because I think she's the coolest, but also because I think she'll be the hardest. We hardly see anything worthwhile of her alt mode in G1, and only a hint of her transformation, so it's a fun puzzle to figure out.
    Thank you so much, I really appreciate that.

    I'm in the process of setting up shop here at home to do my own prints, so that I can cut out shapeways and produce completed, assembled and painted, products for collectors. Hopefully that's ready to go within the next month, but I do have a product line I have been quiet about that I'll be messaging you and some others for input on, so stay tuned.
