    Wasn't trying to take anything away, someone had asked where they came from and I was just saying where they were from is all.

    This is goddamn amazing, but there is one problem: using sharpies may not have been the best idea, the ink will turn purple eventually. I have a Classics Jetfire that's turned pink because i wasn't aware of this sharpie side-effect.

    After watching your video I got the mental image of Max holding up the horseman finger sign and hollering WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Great job.

    He needs a playmate. I'm thinking Masterpiece Scorponok.

    The equivalent would be like creating a black hole and then imploding it. Superawesome.

    Thanks guys! I'm just glad that after almost 10 months of working on it, it's finally OVER, lol.

    Yup, those are the Monopoly pieces. I've still got some others around here (Bumblebee, Starscream, Soundwave, Shockwave, Grimlock, etc) that I plan on painting up, just haven't had the time yet.

    I've got some other pics coming that show the arms a bit more extended. They're proportional, I don't think they're too small but that's just my opinion (which is obviously biased, lol). The hands, however, look fine when they're in an open position, but when closed it makes the fists look small. Oh well, I can live with it, lol.


    Well, an EL sheet was originally planned but that fell through. Regardless, I like the one that's on there now. Like Zildjian said, wait until you see the video where everything is lit up like a Christmas tree. :D 


    Thankfully, I didn't use sharpies. I went through about two dozen gundam markers on this thing, lol. I may have referred to sharpies before, but it was a generalized term. Like somebody saying "get me a coke" when they really mean bring me a soft drink, not necessarily "coke".

    Ah, that's a relief. Gundam markers shouldn't suffer from purpling. They'll smudge if not clearcoated, but i assume you'll be using at least some form of clearcoating.

    Okay, here are some pics of Fort Max with the custom Master Sword that I made, as well as pics with his two rifles.

    Only one more photo set to go (still sorting out the last few pics).

    Enjoy!!

    Might just be me, but the blade of the sword looks a little short for him.

    Really awesome stuff. I echo the comment about the proportions of the arms, but otherwise pretty faultless.

    You have cohones de acero for even attempting this, man :lol

    Adding this much detail and articulation to such a large figure is incredibly impressive. I know the sword is anime accurate in size but I can't help but want to see him holding a larger one.

    Out freaking standing!!! :rock 

    I think I said this a good while back in this thread, but I've been wanting to see this done to Fort Max for a long time. Now this needs to be done for the Masterpiece line :D
