DailyDurian@SteamShield *Gasp!* Mark two is where I'll be going when you make that available.
Also, I finally received the Hermes Fans last week - I'll have to set aside some time to put it together and paint it. Thanks so much WOO! :D
DailyDurian oooh...I just ordered this and was wondering if you were planning an idw-esque face plate to go with?
DailyDurian Thanks for that. Will order as suggested, but was also curious on how much they'd cost in black high def! I've had great experiences with black high def!
(i.e. If you enable for black high def i'll probably order two copies - one in the red/yellow polished and the second in black high def :D)
DailyDurian@obsidian30 I don't know how the pricing works between the two different options (1 piece vs 2) - how much are they currently for the two parts in black high def? (note I just noticed the link to part 2 in the description above links back to part 1!)
Either way, quite happy to go with what you reckon works best :)
DailyDurian hahaha. Given how long I spent first looking for the original post on unicron.com. then trawling through many different search string variations on both google and in shapeways, I finally gave up and retweeted the unicron.com tweet, asking if anyone else I knew had seen it on shapeways. minutes later I tried "MTMTE Rodimus Chest" in shapeways for the first time and BOOM. hahaha.
the teaser looked great and hence my interest.
DailyDurian@obsidian30 Totally interested! My current order won't be ready for a little while and it'd be great to be able to add this (and part 2) on so I only ship once! :D
You won't believe how long I spent looking for this piece after the feature you guys ran on April1!
DailyDurian Is this going to be made available soon? Looks great. I'm ready to buy this and part 2!
(Would love it in black hi-def so it's nice and crisp!)
DailyDurian would you make a "season 1" head to fit this body too?
Talk about inobservant - i thought this was the season 1 head until I finished sanding and priming this. AMAZING work on the sculpt btw
DailyDurian@Strangefate Cheers, chief! Glad to hear you're back online! (also a little scared as I'll then be spending a whole bunch at your store) I finally put together my work-in-progressing in your thread on thefwoosh. here: http://thefwoosh.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=93&p=2798191&sid=45fff1d80229f6185448a3023a8e342c#p2798191
The 2nd image shows what I mean about the torso doubleballjoint being too long. I just felt like she was floating a bit without the shortened joint.
Still, love what you've done and will definitely post more actiony shots when I'm done with that last head tentacle! :) -Albs
DailyDurian@Andrewsimonthomas As someone who just started painting her fine lined tattoos today, I'd recommend either a brand new really fine tipped brush, or one that you're confident has a good tip (not frayed or anything) then, I used BLACK INK to paint the details.
For the red, it's as simple as using acrylic red (a bit diluted especially for that first coat) and let it soak into the plastic for a few days.
I then used an airbrush to spray in some shadowing using clear red. I think it's turning out well!
BTW @Strangefate - I forgot to mention in the previous post that I found the double ended balljoint (barbell?) for the torso to be approx 2-3 mm too LONG. I ended up shortening it (sliced off balljoint, cut to length, then glued back with a pin) (I've got pics that I'll put up on thefwoosh shortly) Otherwise, LOVED putting this together (and will be getting more)
DailyDurian Hey Dr Strangefate! Hope the move has gone well and you're all set up again! :)
That said, I'm ALMOST done with this at last! When I get back from the states I'll definitely be buying more. Hope the issue with the blank female body not being available in white and the skeletons will be up soon! :)
