New swippy swaps and colorways.

Some things I have been working on...

Some painted Sarvos and a new Pheyden colorway to tie-in to their story.
Found that Galactic Heroes vehicles are a nice scale for Glyos. This is my take on Desert Command "Scar" Pheyden and his best buddy JP (Junkpile).
A close-up. The painting on the head of the Desert Commander is messed up. It was my first custom, and I have slapped some new paint on it to show wear to his skin over years in the desert...which is also why he is wearing the wraps. I don't know that he will ever be completely finished- this figure is likely to keep popping up over the years.

JP was cobbled together on Issaris by Desert Commander using Sincroid and Buildman parts. Unfortunately, the programming of a service BB-series droid was hot-swapped into the Builman head, resulting in a comedian trapped in a robotic body. JP is a constant stream of one-liners.

And then there is this guy. Remember the Lost in Space movie from the late 90's? Cripes, it was quite long ago at this point. Well, before they made the Robot in the movie look like the classic one, there was a Version One design. This is my take on it, but after years of sitting out in the sun on Issaris and rusting down. It still retains the face shield (my main inspiration from the movie Robot), and I kept the head behind the shield blue as homage. Not sure if this one is completely done yet either.

Cool stuff Doc! Hmmm..that one Sarvos has a color scheme that reminds me of the Spider-Man villian, Jack O'lantern. Was that intentional?

Good call on the JOL. I hadn't thought of it, although I thought the color looked familiar...
