About this creation














You know when you get one of those brainwaves and just can't figure out where it came from? Well that was this moc. I hadn't planned to make Seaspray, in fact since I never liked the character as a kid, never owned the figure, I honestly don't know what possessed me to build him.

This is actually version 3, as is getting to be a pattern with my legoformers there were several false starts, some actually making it to about 90% finished, before being abandoned.

The hardest part of this design was the legs. I know this version has quite simple legs, but I went through several designs where the "feet" were the entire lower leg. Can you imagine trying to get those skirts to fold up into something that can actually stand!



Rejected Designs

Inevitably as soon as I posted him I realised that I wanted to make some changes. I like the "belly" look, but the chest doesn't work. I'm also not sold on those huge feet. I had originally intended the heel to fold in better, but I stupidly made them too long so they don't fold up as I planned.

Also in most versions there is usually a support bar holding the two turbines together. I left it off deliberately but in hindsight I could have incorporated one. I also wonder if i could have made the nose more rounded. While i like the square skirt It isn't really very g1 accurate. Then again he is supposed to be "my" version, so liberties with look and body type are inevitable.

The design is very gappy when viewed from above. Version 4?

To Do:

- Minions of Unicron (Cyclonus and Galvatron)
