    I’ve remodeled the chest‘s front and back transformation to give it screen accurate proportions

    Once the sculpt is tidy I’ll post pics

    instead of just being dead weight, the chest doors actually become part of the truck mode

    Progress pic!
    The original Evasion design had so much free space inside the chest that I was able to compress everything into the proper proportions.

    I know the biceps look a bit skinny, and the head is straight from the ROTF game, but that's because the sculpting is done last

    Plus, due to the reworked transformation, the back panels of the truck (that became the shoulder pads on M01) now become the back panels in robot mode, making it more accurate. And the drums don't need to partsform to get on the back, either, so that's a good thing.

    Also, the truck mode windows become the robot mode windows!

    That is really cool! Any chance of it actually being produced or purchased by a manufacturer when you are done?

    How accurate to the real world truck will the alt mode be?

    Very
    i had to shrink the tanks down because they were too big in robot mode though ;-;

    the original truck actually had more in common with the G1 truck, so just about everything has to be re-sculpted.

    Sounds good. A lot of work, but you seem to very into it so have fun! :D 

    Also, it might help you knew exactly what brand/make/model the truck in the movie is and perhaps find a scale model of it.

    Will it have ten wheels? That would really nail it :D

    The truck in the movie is a custom '73 Marmon cab. That scale model idea is actually really good, I'll see if I can find one.

    And I'm going to do something with the wheels, where they transform like on Wei Jiang's mpm04, but instead of extending out, the thigh folds and they push inwards, so that the proportions end up near perfect.
    The waist will be at the back of the truck, and the feet will nest in the cab, similar to on mpm04. This'll make the overall vehicle far more clean than on other Evasion Prime figures... I honestly can't wait to see the final product

    I drive trucks with dual tires in the rear, but I didn't know if you knew these exist as well...

    wouldn't help if you had a blow out though; the 2nd tire would at the very least, still allow you to continue to a safe spot for repair.

    But it's why I always just accepted a single rear tire on the toys.

    it'd be interesting if Prime had single tires, and they just deflated and squished in when he transformed

    Wow. Will the quality be as good as Weijiang's? Also, what is the expected price range?
