  1. Hey guys, I recently finished trying to clean up an image, scanned from a kit I have, of the Blowsuperior. I cleaned it up the best I knew how, so maybe I can get a poster print or something. I've always been fond of this cover art, and figured some of you may be interested. The White japanese writing in the top left isn't spot on, I was trying to get it done quickly so its prob not 100% accurate, but I'm happy with how it turned out. Hopefully one of these images shows up lol!
  2. Holy screw!!! That is ridiculously awesome. Like Nash said, I'd love to have the ability to do something that complex. Will be watching this for sure.
  3. I think I have most of them, I just think it'd be cool to have some that don't transform, that way transformation doesn't become a factor in the looks, like bigger heads, etc to pull off the SD look. Still nice little suckers tho.
  4. Yeah, I do think I remember seeing his custom somewhere, pretty sweet, from what I recall. Sounds cool. I saw the body you're talkin bout, looks really nice. Good luck and don't forget pics
  5. Lol. The red clothing, from the waist down, irritated me. I'm a lineart kinda guy when it comes to that, You'll probably laugh, but I took a damn permanent black marker and colored those suckers Never did it with the blue cloth, since its not so distracting, would still like to tho. The Fuke custom you plan to make, would it transform? I built mine to stay in cycle mode, wasn't too difficult that way. I've had a Beagle Blowsuperior custom sitting on the backburner for, God only knows how long, pain in the butt to make sure things transform properly and all. I've recently started working on it again tho, hopefully I'll finish it
  6. Sweet, thanks for posting.
  7. Really! I'd love to see a pic if you by chance come across it.
  8. Man, That Gosu is the bomb, not sure if I dig the metallic paint scheme tho. I'd love to have some enemy mecha figures or models. Seeing those pics of the SD Macross battroids on the front page, makes me wish somebody would make some SD Mospeada mechs and Inbits. Took a few pics of some of my Mospeada stuff. I've got some other stuff, so limited on room tho. I got these cases from Ikea and put in some led strips, I've got 2 more cases to build, then I could put a few more things out.
  9. WOW!!! Awesome job!! Even did a head sculpt. I was working on one of these, but I got sidetracked, by so many other projects. How long did it take you exactly? Customizing takes too long, especially when you don't have that much experience . I think I got a little overwhelmed, trying to do so much with it. I can't wait to see the Bartley!! Damn, I need to work on that thing some more, so I can have one of those fine lookin things
  10. Thanks, I am tryin to make a Yellow version of the Beagle, I haven't had that much experience with using plastic styrene and transforming parts, etc. I know alot of the parts and things I've made have probably been made the hard way, its just takin forever and I get frustrated sometimes. I am makin pretty good progress on the Megahouse Bartley tho, since I don't have to fabricate nearly as many things, because of model kit parts being swapped in.
  11. Nah, its just a custom I made from one of those Imai transforming kits from years ago, and is in permanent bike mode. A little project I have picked up, is makin a Bartley Megahouse using parts from an Imai kit I had. Its scale is almost a perfect match for the Megahouse. I'll take pictures sometime to show where I'm at with it.
  12. Make sure you add me to the list, ya missed me 1st time around
  13. With some of the skills you guys have, I'd like to see someone attempt making a Devastator custom. I think I'd crap myself. I'd try it, unfortunately, I cant even get myself to finish my Blowsuperior custom, its so hard to make the parts and such, and doesn't help that I did no pre-planning, plus I'm lazy
  14. Nice, I am down for one set, maybe several more depending on final pricing and such. I thought those CMs figures were a nice idea, but was kinda disappointed, when seein them in person.
  15. WOW!!! I'm gonna keep my eye on this for sure. Looks great!!
  16. There may have been an easier way to do it, not sure, but this is what I did. I cut the fin the length I wanted and dremeled out a new slot for the hinge. I took the pin out and shortened it, then I used my panel lining tool and carved out little channels on the sides of the slot I cut out. That way the metal pin slides up into the fin piece, with a little pressure sliding it on there and a pinch of superglue. Presto!! I have a Cm Legioss that I can look at, that doesn't bug the poo out of me Did any of that make sense? I'm terrible at explaining crap.
  17. I would probably try using a real fine grit sandpaper, and really lightly go over the areas. Of course try this at your own risk, its what I would do tho.
  18. Here's some pics of my little mod to the CM Legioss. I like it soo much more in soldier mode now, those tail fins were such an eyesore before. Man, I wish they would've went with the telescoping legs, thats the other eyesore for me, is the knee joints. With the head, I like to raise it up a little, makes it appear there is actually a neck, and not shadowed soo much by the chest and shoulders.
  19. I just performed this surgery on my newly owned CM Red Legioss, except I shortened the tail fin lengths so they only protrude out enough to see a sliver of the white striping. I wasn't worried about the fins sticking out a little, like you said, the Alpha/Beta linkup is all kinds of fail, and I will never display them that way. I'll take pics some time.
  20. It looks to me like part of the problem could be where the kickstand piece is.The kickstand and the piece its attached to, should line up right underneath the tailpipe. I think where you have it now is creating the twisting effect your getting.
  21. Blades are a must!! They wont be retractable tho, they'll just plug in and out.
  22. Hey all, I'm tryin to mod a Beagle into a Blowsuperior. I just took some pics of where I'm at so far, and see what you guys think. I'm taking any tips, suggestions, etc, anyone may have, seeing as how I've never done any modding on this scale before. I'm more of a lurker, but seeing as how this thread has fallen to the depths of the second page, I'm gonna do my part to keep this thread alive To be honest these Mospeada threads are the reason I come to this site. Enough of that crap, here are some pics. Here is Yellow's helmet, still have a good ways to go, but you get the idea. The neck hole will definitely be puttied over, thats hideous. Forearm armor- I knew this would be a pain in my ass, tryin to round and smooth the putty on this thing. I used parts from a Gakken model kit I have, and cut it in half, put a spacer in, and puttied over it. I'm tryin to give it a beefier look as the original piece seemed somewhat flat. another view Here's the back piece, for lack of a proper term. I used parts from the Imai BlowS. kit like the thruster and the cover piece underneath it. side view Front end- again, I've been using Imai parts on the front also, I should take the easy road, but I'm gonna try to make the missile clusters (since there is room for it) and an opening cover. I used spacers on the cover to get the length and width I needed. I'm undecided on how to implement an opening mechanism another view I guess I'm gonna have to try and mod the engine also This thing will never gets finished When I get a little further along, I'll post some more pics. Like I say, any tips or ideas are more than welcome.
  23. I believe its all but official that the Beagle Mospeada line is dead. Yeah, the only way to have a complete bike set is with the CM line. I wish Beagle would finish the line, definitely save me alot of time and frustration
  24. When I get a chance I'll post some pics of what I've got goin on. I was gonna do the Fuke, but I figured, just in case Toynami would by some chance, get their hands on it and decide to put it out, I'd go with Blowsuperior. The thing that sucks about a Fuke mod, is the fact you also have to make all new armor for the figure itself, can be done, but still sucks. Like I say, I'll post pics here or in the Mospeada thread, maybe you guys will have some tips or advice. The only thing I've done much of a mod to is the Fuke cyclone in my avatar, based of an Imai kit, but its not transformable.
  25. You've got some nice fixes goin on there Marine. I didn't spot color the arms like you, but I did color the the crotch area and down, black with permanent marker, gives it more of the anime look. I know what you guys mean about the screw covers, they are glued in. If you have the proper tools, alot of patience, and aren't afraid to scratch and break pieces( come on its only a $250 toy ) you can get them to pop out. I have one of mine totally disassembled, of course some parts I wasn't even worried about since I'm gonna mod it into a Blowsuperior. Hopefully! I don't have much experience with modding something like this, and at the pace I'm goin, it'll be finished in the year 2011!
