Ooh, green mossy streaks! Dying patches of sparse, coarse grass! WEEDS!
that hand is beutiful
This is going to be ridiculously sick!
Woah! That hand looks wicked cool!
As for names, how about "Decimator", "Monstrotitan", "Quadracon", "Atrocitron" or "Titanocon"
This is going to be insane
Those hands KINGBOTZ, OMG those hands. I bow to thee.
This is turning out SICK.
Nemesis Forge.......run of the mill........steeplechase....infernal forge...
Just throwing a few names at ya.... I like infernal forge....but nothing I come up with is awesome enough for the figure.
Yep, I took on this project with the intention on taking full advantage of the figure's size & potential considering the space it has to work with, and it's got a LOT. It'll be a challenge for sure to overhaul the alt-mode's appearance to look more earthly & industrial & less Cybertronian, but it's coming together slowly & surely. It's a lotta work, but the end-result will be rewarding for sure....
You and me both, and the client is pretty durn happy so far too! The rabbit-hole goes a little deeper with this one, just gotta work out a few details....
I hope to have a nice upate soon...
This things is constantly changing, I'm also curious how it'll turn out!
Nope they don't, but nice observation though! They do kinda look like they would, but I just wanted to design them to continually "step down" til they come to a point. I did add a little bit of trestle-trim to the outside of the index finger, but I may add a little more blending-trim yet to help it blend in a little more....there's so many different ways I could've done them, but I wanted long, wicked, freaky fingers. They look skinny, but the hand is actually oversized for the bot-mode, but that's what I wanted. Kind of a strange vision I had, but I wanted a hand that rivaled the big-ass-gun on his other arm and look just as freakish.
That's exactly what I had in mind when I went shopping at the hobby-store the other day....found some discolored little shrubbery that should work nicely in a crevice somewhere, or creeping up the side of a stack or trestle. The possibilities are endless. It's really hard to not just go all out & crazy with detail on this, it has so much potential.
Thanks! I may still yet enhance it a little bit to blend with mill-mode, we'll see....
That it is, my friend. One of my greatest challenges yet is pulling this off.
Yep, and it's freakishly big just like his left-arm gun, they both make his head look really small, lol....but everything's going as planned....
Nice input! I've actually been narrowing the name down the past few days, got a really good idea what it'll end up being. His concept and magnitude is legendary, so I felt a 2-part name was vital to matching the caliber of the character and do him justice.... From my own ideas, the client and all the helpful feedback here on the boards from everybody, I was able to narrow it down to something I think will work for him.
That's the idea, thanks for checking it out!
Thanks man, I love the way it came out! I do need to reinforce the knuckles to support the weight of the new fingers, and may add some mill-detail before it's through, but I'm pretty happy how it looks so far.
Should look REALLY sick with the green LED-eyes I plan to put in his head!
Ah, nice brainstorm, we kinda think alike! ....you came pretty close with the Infernal Forge-name to the few I have in mind....
...And I totally agree, the name must be something that describes his magnitude, dwarfs other Titans and almost rivals a god in concept. A Titan, but something much worse and nearly transcends a Titan's status in our physical-world, a robotic-demon.
I have the perfect name HELL FORGE.
Titan now has metal "claws" instead of nubby-toes. He now also has some new 100% scratch-built "knee-pads", totally replacing the originals, which I felt were much too Cybertronian-looking for the overall industrial-look I want. The "knee-pads" double as a type of trestled "gateway" for the stock-cars as they enter or leave the facility in mill-mode. These gateways are fitted with custom-made 2-part support "gussets" that pivot out and support the gateways and fit flush to the ground. They also make for nice, sharp detail in robot-mode. Pictured here are one of the legs in bot-mode and how they display in mill-mode, and a comparison shot of the old & new knee-pads.
straight looks like something out of Death Race....Mad Max...love it sir.
Love the metal claws!!!
How tall is this thing going to be ?
I love seeing this jump to the frontpage; every update is awesome.
