    Lio Convoy

    Got Lio Convoy for cheap and always hated the legs.
    Bashed with leftover Gundam parts, he is 50% done. I will be finalizing the transformation soon and add weapons for him.

    Thanks for looking!

    Here is nearly done, some detailing and tweaking left. I have added a pair of detachable hands and articulated the tail.

    Awesome so far! He's already looking much better. The legs are the only thing that I've really had a serious gripe with. This might just motivate me to work on them...

    Looking forward to seeing the finished product!

    looks a lot better! but i think maybe you should try to give him a ball joint in his shoulder. i always hated the way that his arms can move out to the sides, with the join at the lower bicep

    Thanks! :D 

    It is nearly done. Yeah, his legs really bugged me besides that he is a swell toy on his own.

    Wanted to try that, but I ran out of parts. Maybe when I have some in the foreseeable future...:D 



    Thanks, guys. :D  :D 

    No combines modes here. Just himself. The legs are from Gundam 1/60 Exia.

    The plate? I kinda like it, it gives him the regal type of look. :D 

    See my reply above. It is the Exia. :D  :D 
    Thanks for looking.

    Thanks! Appreciate it.

    Ahhhh...I see. Thanks for correcting me. And no. There will be no Maximal symbol. Appreciate it if you ca comment on the work, pointing out the name error is appreciated, but not necessary. Thanks a ton.

    Thanks! :D

    Bravo! He looks bad ass! Wasn't there a black version of this figure? Would have been cool to see this same mod done for the darker lion, then he could have been the enemy/ nemesis of the Lio Convoy with the lion head on the shoulder!

    Each to his own, but I sure don't see regal. The hatch head look is what you expect from a mini-con or G1 mail order toy IMHO.
