Well today I decided it was time to start on my first transformer, a casseticon, after many hours late last night studying (playing with) my small transformers collection.
My cassetticon is planned to be the size of a real cassette and will transform into one of the humanoid casseticons (Probably one of my own invention).
The materials I have used thus far:
Old cd case.
Those are pretty much all the materials I plan to use plus whatever I end up using to sculpt its head.
I began with opening the cassette and removing all the workings, this left me with two cassette halves (My first pieces
I decided it would be best to start from the ground up ie. the legs.
The bottom of the cassette is what will transform into the legs however it had holes in it where the tape head reads from.
Sacrificing some realism I decided to fill these 4 holes (The middle hole will house the feet).
I cut piecec of an old cd cover and filed them to size then super glued them to one half of the cassete.
Progress thus far:
2 holes filled.
I would be taking pictures but my camera phone battery is dead, so I will post pictures when it has recharged later on tonight if I can.
All in all im having fun on my first transformer although im not sure of the final quality yet.
I'm thinking along the lines of Eject or Rewind.
