Restoration: KO ROTF Voyager Swerve; Update: KO Kabaya Fortress Maximus

KO ROTF Voyager Swerve
Gotten this KO some time ago, love the robot mode, dislike the car mode... now after taking this picture, understand why... Front of car not wide enough and no side mirrors, hahaha... Technically, it is not Swerve, as the head is still Sideswipe's... and the feet are different... Anyway, did some touch up, tighten some loose joints, and remove some silver paint... now looks better...

Car mode...



Robot mode, in package...


Robot mode, after fiddling... This is my favourite of the 2 modes...




KO Kabaya Fortress Maximus
Gotten some breather and also to de-stress, I finally built up this little fella... Very neat little piece, able to transform into all 3 modes... well, almost... but then, the head is just a head, and has to be unplugged from robot to transform into city or battle-station mode, so... made him a little headmaster Cerebros... yeah, the little yellow-red figure at the bottom of the picture...


City mode...


Battle station mode... yeap, my little headmaster Cerebros can stand inside the cockpit...



Made this headmaster from an extra KO Kabaya Road Caesar kit's brainmaster... Don't want to damage the original head clip, so after some hard work, finally managed to built him... The green piece is the face...


Ready to head on, Cerebros...


Head on!!!! Fortress Maximus!!!! (Or is it Minimus???)


The head is too too wide and causes the shoulders to be pushed out a little... but no big problem, so still ok...


Witness my firepower!!!!!!


So how does the new headmaster Cerebros measures up to his predecessors? Here's a size comparison...


Size comparison in city mode...


Grandfather, father, son...


Hope my haul reach Shanghai & S'pore without hiccups...
