I want to see this comparison with the new ring(s).
that looks awesome! What did you use for the wash and how did you do it? I’ve been wanting to do something like that or try to cel shade unicron. Im also still waiting on the larger wings
I used CreateFX acrylic wash I got from a local hobby store. Pretty easy to accomplish. Paint it on, wipe it off. The wash stays in the crevasses. Depending on how long you wait before wiping it away, there could be more/less cleanup. Also if you get too aggressive wiping, you could take out the wash where you wanted, so it’s a small learning curve. I was able to do the whole bot and two sets of wings with just a small bottle.
They just fell out on mine, so a small spudger or plastic toothpick should work. Didn't seem like there was a ton of glue behind them.
These are news to me. Anyone know where to find them?
Update on Group Buy #2. All units are printed and getting painted shortly. Should be shipping soon. Thanks everyone
That's awesome! Thanks for the update, looking forward to this!!
Yeah, when the design is good, it's GOOD no matter who it's from. I know Hasbro/Takara has their fair shares of amazing figures, but having 3rd parties also means you have more options and people trying to outdo each other. I think Transformers is the only thing out there that has unofficial products that people would gladly collect with the real deal.
Funny you should mention that. Those parts were loose on mine floating around in the box and I had to pop them in. Should be nothing holding them in but friction.
Are you planning to do spike tips for the new rings that were just released as well? [waves $$$]
He's not the guy who's making them. He's just the guy whose being hella awesome by doing a big group purchase for the rest of us. The guy making them is someone over seas, I believe.
Does anyone know how to contact the maker?
My same thought
I’ve been moving the collection around and rearranging and due to that, I think I’ve decided that Cell needs his own display. Especially with the new wings.
So now I’m messing with lighting to see what would look neat on a single display with only him and a light system. So far it’s been very fun messing with different light angles!
As someone else mentioned i just started a group buy so we could all get them at a discounted price (including myself). All credit goes to Hafiz Zul for creating them.
"Alas, poor Prime, I knew ye."
With the guys that have the larger wings, what configuration are you guys going with? I tend to like the tips higher(right), but like the length as well(left).
For people who have the new wings - because you get two "stands" with Cell, and you can connect them together one on top of the other, can that be used as a stand that fits him in planet mode even with the larger ring diameter? Or is it still not big enough? Or possibly where the rings overlap slightly, is that too wide for the openings?
See below, all from this thread.
Seeing them side by side, the planet mode on Cell really doesn't look that bad in comparison. The details on the haslab feel like they disappear too easily.
