Greetings! Today I’m going to keep the Update short, but I have a bunch of photos to show you.
The Destroid prototypes arrived at the Palladium offices this morning, so much of today was spent carefully disassembling them so we could examine the parts breakdown and snap some photos for you all, and then putting them back together again. The disassembly was necessary because Ninja John had assembled them to do his own checks on how well parts fitted together and whether anything was missing.
First up, here’s a look at the Spartan. From the parts breakdown you can see there are a few different arm and weapon options, and both open and closed chest missile bay versions.
And here are a few shots of two assembled Spartans in different poses.
Note: Some of you will notice the seams, especially in the upper legs, where they are particularly wide. Because these have been assembled, disassembled, and assembled again, as well as painted with a sort of primer at some point to make details easier to see, there are glue residue and primer between some of these pieces that I just couldn't quite remove. That’s the main culprit in some of these seams being as wide and noticeable as they are. When the pieces arrived this morning, some of those seams were barely visible, if at all, and a good coat of paint should conceal them quite well.
