Universe Skyfall Upgrade (WIP)

Postby Venksta » Sun Nov 15, 2009 10:59 am

Hi everyone. Just wanted to drop by and share in progress images of my custom Skyfall upgrade parts. I wanted to give him a G2 style head. A friend also suggested to give him sniper rifles. I'm creating the parts in 3D, and then will have them laser prototyped to scale. Once I have them in hand, I'll just sand, primer, and then paint them. Skyfall's new head will retain the light up function. The visor is translucent. Below are photos showing progress of these parts in order. Also special thanks to the photo gallery you have here. I allways come here first for the excellent photo references. :)

Hi! Just wanted to show an update on this project. I got the prototype head in. Still waiting on the guns. Below is a link to a youtube video showing how the visor still works with the original LED light in the head. :) Sorry for the poor quality photos, my main camera was out of juice.

Thanks! The head was design in 3d, and then laser prototyped. The final version will look like something that came from Hasbro's factory. :)

I am looking into selling the head, and guns as a set. I've had many fans ask me about it. So I'm in the process of looking into producing them on my own. This is very hard for the average joe to do. You really need training in either CAD or 3D software to be able to make something at least decent. I've been 3d modeling for about 11 years now. I do have other projects in the works, like a blaster upgrade set for the universe repaint, and a weapons set for classics prime and megatron. :)

I haven't posted prototypes for the other two projects here, since I'm not really that active on Seibertron.com. But if you guys would like to see them, I'd be happy to make new threads show casing the work on those projects. :)

I'll post the other proejcts when I'm further along. I was taking commissions, but I'll be stopping now. To many requests for custom parts, and I don't really have the time for them all.


Some new photos of the prototype, including the two rifles. I'll have painted photos on the weekend. :)

I have some photos of the painted prototype to share. The casted pieces will look smoother, along with the visors being nicer looking. As long as everything goes as planned. And there are two different colored visors shown. The rifles also fit loosely in jetmode. This is do to the bottom side of the fists having a slightly wider hole.

Youtube video showing the painted helmet working with the LED.

To be nice to any dialup users, I won't post all the photos. Rest of them can be seen in this folder:

Please do not repost these images anywhere.

I had to drive down to Washington state to get my Skyfall. Last time I went down, they were all sold out. :\ I don't think him and the other Ultra repaints will be showing up in Canada.
