Here's something I've been messing around with for awhile. It's a figure based on the TF movie video game Swindle/Decepticon drone. Made from a 1:24 scale 2004 Pontiac GTO model kit and Legos. Trying to stay as close to the game and toy transformation as possible as well as the overall movie look with a little Alternators flavor thrown in for good measure.
Think of it as a highly detailed Action Master or Movie Robot Replica. Or an articulated maquette.
This figure stands at about 10 inches tall. In 1:24 scale, that puts him at about 20 feet.
I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. Although it doesn't transform, I wanted it to look like it could. I was hoping to retain a lot of the Swindle toys visual cues while preserving the overall movie robot look with a little boxiness thrown in for old times sake. The over 20 points of articulation make him very poseable too. My goal was to use every piece of the car model kit and I came as close as possible, I think. Only a tiny bit of scraps were left over.
A little bonus is in his head. Literally. There is a small white button on the top of his head. Pushing the button activates his glowing red eye. I hope I can get a good pic of that later.
Thanks for taking a look and for any comments you might have.
