I was wondering if anyone could give me pointers on what material to buy it in. I have no paint skills but I can easily do a couple spray applications if needed. I really would like to keep the detail as best as possible without doing a bunch of prep work. So, pointers?
:BOT:

I had bought the #4 version for my superion: http://www.shapeways.com/model/168506/s ... ler-4.html

I would recommend getting the white strong and flexible polished, as the white almost matches Silverbolt's colourscheme already, I didn't even bother to paint mine and you can't even notice it.


I got the 4th one in WSF and didn't paint it either. It's good to go straight out of the bag and having the hip movement is better for balance even when it's just standing straight on the shelf. Pics are earlier in the thread if you want to check it out.

Thanks for the responses. I somehow managed to miss the 4th version when I was searching. Looks like I've got it all nailed down. Thanks again.

What i also did with mine was too add some G1 stickers from a Reprolabels superion sticker set i had kickin around. You may not be into stickers but it adds a little flare where needed.

Banjo-tron and I were discussing bot choices for Superion, and he asked me to share a few pics of my custom Skydive.

To recap from the other thread, here is what I used:
Skydive was the one I cobbled together from Universe Skydive & Fireflight.
I was able to parts swap with what I had and make him all grey.
If you used the wings from a second E. Skyshadow, it would be even better, but I didn't have one available.

And a few quick snaps:

Superion with a mix of Energon and Universe parts.
No, I don't have the FP set.

Man is he teeny compared to Devy!
And Devy is
A) in the Back, and
B) in a pretty wide stance because he JUST barely fits on the shelf
Image

Another group shot.

A close up of the custom leg.
And Runamuck, or is it Runabout?
Geez, it's Frumble all over again.

Looks really nice man! Shame that pedantic guy kicked us off the other thread. I will take pics of mine this afternoon. One question - to access the waist/hips, did you manage to get the long pin that goes through the torso out? I tried for ages with mine, heating it up to about a million degrees with my soldering iron. Eventually, I just ploughed through the combiner joint with the soldering iron to get access, and melted it out from there! So props to you if you managed to do the job more elegantly.

Here are a couple of pictures for now. I think he ties in much better with the other Aerialbots now. The below pic is with the original fireflight - you can see that I have made the red more vibrant and in keeping with the others. I also swapped all of the grey parts from original Skydive and the 'cuffs' as well. There are also a couple of pictures of him hanging with the replacement Skydive.

Here's mine. I've added some stickers too the chest area,wings and upper legs. I'm still wondering what stickers i may still add. I have plenty left on that sticker sheet.
Sadly i don't have any of the other releases of Superion Maximuis. Just the ROTF one but whatever. They still do the job.

That head looks great. Is it just a KO G1 head you put over like Zodconvoy did? Did you just slip it over Silverbolt's head?

Thanks man, it was either big head, or derp head, and big head just edged it :grin: . I painted the face and visor to give it a more comic/cartoon look. The face is actually a great sculpt.

Maybe those shoulder guns could point AWAY from his head???
Good idea though. Never woulda thought of that.

LOL I see what you mean. I like that arm configuration the best, as it allows the shoulders to sit flush instead of angled out. But the drawback is that you have some obvious hands poking out. I tried to hide them a bit with the guns but I can see it resembles a dead man's collar. Maybe to stop Superion misbehaving? :twisted: Thanks for giving me the idea about using the G1 head, BTW :)
