Build Spectrum

As we go into overdrive packing everything up, I wanted to get a few of these latest Build configurations posted to try and spice up the week. Micronauts is one of my favorite lines of all time, and it's fun to try and make Build versions of those old characters. The Membros design has some of the craziest looks for a toy, and I'd been itching to try and make that brainy freak for a long time. The mostly red version is a homage to my friend Bryan Wilkinson (Microbry), and the work he did with Palisades back during their re-release of Micronauts. Man, I miss Palisades. The Centurions was another big influence on me, even though I never owned any as a kid. The rumor is that Jack Kirby designed the main characters for that show! When you look at the style it kind of makes sense. Trying to solve the chest look on those was a fun challenge, with the 7 iconic insert ports being a necessity to convey. Anyway, I hope you guys get a kick out of these builds, and as always, I look forward to seeing what is on your creative minds.

    madness? THIS IS GLYOS!!!

    Sweet builds guys. I wasn't a micronaut fan partially because I didn't know about em so I dunno the characters but whenever you guys portray em in your pieces they feel so right.

    I really need to get some more figures, and definitely some phase cannons so I can build this type of stuff.

  5. membros is SO awesome... he was always my favorite micronaut (still have him too!) and that thing is INSANE.. the face is perfect

    how the hell do you think of these things.. a centurion... I never had them either (and I always thought they were clunky looking) but the recreation is amazing

  6. Wow, I'm honored!

    Actually Ken Lilly really deserves the credit for the solid single color Membros though, I actually wanted to do them more faithful to the original with two tones on each variant. But the black weapons were likely me in any case. :D

    Palisades is sorely missed. I do hope Hasbro does right by the Micronauts next year now that they own them.

  7. Love the Centurions builds, its awesome how your own creations are starting to have more bending/hinge joints to them. What is the black & silver guy on the bottom from? Not Centurions? o_O?
