I am not dead....
... I am building transforming robots.
Because, when one reaches a point where one's 40k habit plateaus, and there's nothing new or exciting, that is what one does.
The Vic Viper here is almost completely self-contained with no parts-swapping, except for the head, which is magnetized (a joint wouldn't fit in the slender torso with the shoulders and back assembly there) which swaps out with the main computer-nub in the chest when everything folds up. Now all that's left is the sanding and painting.
The inspiration for me to finish this project came, in part, from Tears of Envy's Tumblr, which is full of all kinds of awesome.
Also, I wanted to beat the toy's release, which is scheduled for April, and does require the swapping of hip joints and such.
Happy Saturday, people.
