That animation is cool. Someday we'll get good TransFormers on the big screen.
The more observant may have spotted that I dirtied up my Ectotron so that he would look more realistic in that gif. A lot of that work isn't seen closely, so here are some pics of the detailing I added:
Obviously the main thing was panel lining over all the sculpted indentations. There's also a dark wash to give depth to recessed areas, some silver dry brushing to bring out the details (particularly on the black parts like the proton pack), added colours based on reference material (such as wiring and buttons/dials on the equipment and the silver tower and bronze tank on the roof section). Plus silver door handles and darker window tint, and finally a bit of dry brush dirt effect around the car bodywork.
I already loved the alt mode, but with that extra level of detail it really does look impressive. All it really needs to finish it off is a No-Ghost logo and licence plate on the rear door/bumper.
Reprolabels, hear our plea!
Love the panel lining, I need to try it.
looks pretty awesome.
I can't believe how good this looks!
I’m hoping for a MP scale Ectotron.
that would be the ectotron they released (drift is an upscaled ko), he is about the size of a mp carbot
Gonna be picking this guy up once my Ebay Bucks activate, as I was an idiot and canceled my $40 Hasbro Pulse pre-order long ago.
I think he already is...
This guy has spawned a whole sub collection for me based on the ghosts of cybertron comic
Ordered my Ectotron with my Ebay Bucks yesterday for a $39 after taxes price tag...
SUCK IT AFTER MARKET PRICES!!
Ectotron pre-order up at BBTS.
Transformers Generation Ectotron Ecto-1
nice, glad this is getting a re-run
You've certainly made the figure look better.
Part of the deal they made to buy the other 1000 Unicorns they'll have for sale.
Are they getting more Battle Unicorns? I missed out the first time.
Maybe not. Possibly more War Ponies though.
