I am working on Quintesson now!!

I been procastinating to do this for the longest time, due to the lack of the right paints and materials as you will learn later.. haha..

Just for the infomation of those interested. I did not build it. I only painted it. ( That's one of the reasons for my lack in motivation to work on it.) However, its available at Rapid Squirral's Production. And I must thank the Person behind this wonderful scuplt. He is simply a genius.

And I have reasons to believe he is the genuis that brought us Transformable A.R.C.

Thank God we found you. Check back for updates.

Meanwhile, Just a little recap. A couple of picture of my all time Favourite. THS Ultra Magnus.

I will also be posting some of my work in progress for my previous custom.

All comments are most welcome.

More images of Star Saber in action

Victory!!! Even baring a name so different from Prime or Convoy. Star Saber remains to be one of the most sort after toys among Transformers collectors. And his glory exudates by his anime counter parts were mostly non existence in his Robot master reincarnation thanks to his limited joints and and stiff neck.

In this project, I have tried to give Star Saber his due Glory without affecting his transformation.

More pictures of Victory Saber and Victory leo to be posted tomorrw. Please check back for updates.

What I have done to the shoulder cannons

In Masterforce, God Ginrai has was armed with a Arm Rocket mounted to his shoulder, making it so lethal that this is one of his finishing moves. Since then, in most series it has become the trademark of most Transformers leader ( In particular the Japanese animation). when they merge with his sidekicks

A brief history of Shoulder cannons on Autobot leaders
-Beginning with the Victory Series, Victory Saber has 2 cannons over his shoulders,
-In 2000 the Transformers return to their Automobile forming alternate mode. Fire Convoy - Merge with God Magnus to form God Fire Convoy again with 2 Huge cannons on his shoulder,
-Following the success of Car Robot, Armada/ Micron legend follows with Jet Convoy (not me LOL) merging with Overload to form Magna Convoy. With 2 Gigantic Blaster cannons to enhance his fire power.
- Even the most disappointing Convoy to date, Grand Convoy ( Such a great name wasted on a lousy design) merge with Wing Saber to form Cannon Convoy
- And finally Galaxy convoy combine with Sonic bomber to form Sonic Convoy. With two Chain Cannons on both side of his shoulder.

Till we see the next convoy... Lets return to the pioneer. Victory saber.

In the both the Vintage and Robotmaster versions, the cannons lacks the flexibility as depicted in the animation. This often hinders posablity of the toy. So by adding the hinge joints to the cannons, not only do I extend the length ( giving it more asetheticity) but also anime accuracy and improve posability.

Victory leo.. transform!!

As you can see that the wings have been extended. More obvious when it spread in Victory saber mode. And the hind legs allow the lion to be more dynamically posed.

Paint job to begin soon...

Victory leo gets more articulation in his hind legs

A great pal of mind suggested to me that Victory leo should be able to bend his Hind legs, as they are sticking out awkwardly in Victory Saber mode and its really ugly.
So i decided to explore the possiblities..

I was pretty apprehensive to give it a go, since there was quite a bit of work involved and i cant be sure if it will be successful... but i decided that it will also give the lion mode more articulations. So no pain no gain.. here goes...

Many have asked what Joint have I been using. Its from Kotobukiya.

I bought it in local model shop cost about 8 sgd. Its really cool.. I didnt expect to see a 2 pt hinge joint there. Strongly recommend. for knee and elbow joints.

Victory Leo Work in progress

Victory leo was tougher than I have earlier expect.
His original face was molded on Rubber/ PVC making it soft and hard to Carved
So I have to remove a large part of the face and reconstruct it with Epoxy

Next I hate Stiff necks and So I added another ball joint to it so that he was swivel for left to right

And his knee joints were tough too. Especially when its part of the transformation. Slight descripancy will render the tranformation impossible. So angle and lenght of the thigh must be keep consistant to the original mold too. I will touch more on that in the next few post.

More updates on the Arms

For arms to swivel to the side. An additional join must be added to the elbow.
1. 2 square styrene sheets were added and stacked together.
2. Drill a hole in the middle of the sheet.
3. At the elbow end, a "rod" is inserted, this create a "male" and "female" joint.

The Fist

In order to allow Star Saber to wield his Saber more freely, Wrist movement are most indispensible. And as promised, Fist joints were added.

What I did to his legs

One of the biggest grouse for Star Saber his inabilities to bend his knees. What here's what I did to correct that. I added a 2-point hinge joint. to allow bending and transformation into Jet Mode


I realised that in order to display Star/Victory Saber in some of his Signature poses, more waist/ Hip movement is necessary. So I decided to give him a ball joint to allow more movement in that region.
