here you go bud...
Thanks a ton!
Beat me to it lol
im loving the NASA sticker. i need to track some down.
I used this paint that I picked up at Michael’s and a paint brush and just hand painted it. I did 2 or three coats and let it dry 20 minutes between coats.
Anyone have a quick and dirty pic of this guy’s settings for maximum G1 toon accuracy? (I know AKOM sucked, super inconsistent, etc)
A while ago... I ordered these guys...
Finally found some time for Inventa... but with all the Space-shuttles around, it was starting to look like a Smithsonian exhibit.
And... in Bot-Mode (well "loony-bird" mode)
...with my limited Season 3 cast.
"Ahh... Yes... Right there Perceptor!! Yes!! That's the stuff!!"
Eventually, I hope to find time to mess with Inventa a bit more... and then of course there's Magma.
But, my Season 3 figures are pretty limited in roster... and I am trying so hard to avoid the suction from the S3 rabbit hole.
looks great and welcome to the space chicken club..
Here’s a couple quick shots. I was curious how it would look myself.
So you just keep the wings in ‘shuttle’ mode with the blue things kept in, right - that’s the gist?
Yeah I extended the blue part out of the shuttle wings but kept the wing tips in.
A more premium finish on the white plus a non-floppy neck would give this ‘fig of the yr.’ potential, but as-is its pretty good ... definitely not likely that another 3P or TT puts out anything to compete, so I’ll just check the box and keep it movin’ ...
Thats how i have the wings as well
i have the feet turned 180 so the split toes are on the rear
Got my replacement parts from MMC, surgery time.... Will be good to have Sky Lynx in bot mode again.
I'm going to sand the edges of the base neck brace slightly in hope they come together tighter and provide more friction to support the neck
EDIT: Finally got some time to fix this guy up and I'm estatic now. Have only fixed the neck and reused all the original parts save for the 1 replacent screw from the neck base brace that threaded. I sanded the inner sides of the neck brace to slightly narrow the pieces in hoping they come together tighter. I also coated the friction point with nail polish and screwed it all up.
Net result is a strong neck! It'll hold with the neck straight out and also with a downward bend at the head, supporting the weight. This is what Inventa should've been out of the box. Shout out to @griffith76 for the guide also.
I didn't put the red screw cover back in in case I'll need to strengthen things up in the future but a v happy camper. I'll also save all the spare parts in case I need them. Anyone sitting on the fence with improving the neck, I'd recommend it. Get parts from MMC first if you're unsure how it'll go. It improves this figure immensely.
I appreciate the guide, but honestly the neck on mine went from loose as can be to being able to hold any pose tightly with a little floor polish. I’m sure I’ll need to re-apply again at some point in the future, but for now I’m thrilled with the results of 30 seconds of effort.
Got my chicky in today after getting the kitty at tf con... I gotta say; I bought mine from toy dojo and my his neck seems fine at any angle, up OR down and his wings tab in in shuttle mode without popping out. My only tiny issue is that the shuttle bay doors don't really sit flush when closed. But if that's the exchange for a pretty much flawless figure, ill take it.
Yeah.. given the tone of this thread, i thought this toy would be actively falling apart. Turns out, it’s pretty cool.
the actual complete bot is a hoot. i don't regret the purchase or the 6 month wait or whatever it was.
i highly recommend skylynx
Is this set worth buying? It is not MP scaled, was thinking if I did buy this set, I would keep in shuttle mode and applied decals as some of you already have done.
