    Manga-styled Windblade (COMPLETED) Update on pg.3

    Final update on pg.3!:D 

    -------
    Hi guys, just a tease on my current custom! :D 

    I like WB as a new character, and the deluxe is definitely a poor representation of her (thanks to Sarah Stone's gorgeous take on her no doubt), so I just thought I could maybe do something with some of my old figures to get myself a better WB.

    PHOTO_20150107_234521.jpg
    Base body: Konami Busou Shinki MMS

    Cool thing is, the deluxe WB parts are just in scale to work with the figure!:rock 

    Sculpting is 90% done save for the back of her head(just her hair) and all she needs is a comic-accurate paintjob, gluing the deluxe parts on, and her eyebrows :D 

    Haven't work on the transformability yet, but based off initial test fitting it's possible to do so (though the head needs to be removed) and she'll have a longer jetmode.

    Until the next update, stay tuned! :wink:

    Using a Shinki as a base body? Brave thing to do, can't wait to see how it turns out!

    OMG, that mosaic surrounding in conjunction with the base body and anime-esque face makes me feel kind of, eh, dirty...... and kiss players Rodimus in the background IS NOT helping the situation!

    (gee THATS never happened before, Hot Rod making s**t worse)

    But I'm all for a more comic accurate windblade

    Thanks everyone!

    Inb4spongenoticesrevoltechalien :D 

    NOTE: Please pardon the Alien...I didn't really expect him to be quite a hilarious distraction until I saw the pics! :eek: 

    Anyhow, minor update for the day, sculpting work is done(maybe a few more for her crotch plate), so the only remaining tasks are to glue bits and pieces onto her face/hair, attach her limbs and additional paint details to mimic the comic's design.

    Standing on one feet with her stock heels. Her upper body counter balances her nicely!

    Removed the default hands and jammed some epoxy & drilled some holes.

    Now she's free to use both BusouShinki & Figma hands. Have some nyan-nyan pose for the time being while the putty dries and hardens. :tongue: 
    [​IMG]

    Size wise she's now a few millimeters taller than MMC Azalea.
    Comparison with her bodyguard/bff/yuri-partner

    Interesting bit: You can totally 'unclip' the thruster unit from the hip skirt(it swivels on that pin) on Chromia for a rather cool looking, um, Butt-rocket mode? :lol 

    Until the next update!:wink:

    Lol, facepalm, yeah the bright red of Hot Rodimus completely obscured my focus on the other things in the background (there you go AGAIN Hot Rod!, STEALING the show!) and I totally missed the gaumless, and gawking alien, framed right between Windblades legs in your first post. (How's the peeping? Tommy, how's the peeping?)

    As for the update pics, Geigers alien is way more noticeable than before lol, I'm definitely interested in the custom so far, and I'm looking forward to more lulzy pics!

    Almost there to 100%, forgot to paint her hairpin, and needs some minor shave of plastic under her chest to allow clearance for torso to rotate 180 for transformation. Have some bot modes for now! :D

    Looks really good. My only issue is that she looks realm spindly, especially in the thigh area. But from what I understand, that's just a shinki thing
