    Ok, So I've started working on Ashley (ME3) model, then i realized although the model has some cool part like the heels and the shoulder parts, I don't really feel like building it as a figurine.
    So i decided I'll build Legion instead, sorry if i got someones hopes up about Ash.

    Right now i have the posing done:

    Lovely, I think him and Thane are the ones people keep asking for the most!

    Yes i dont know why i didnt make Legion sooner, i think Ive been intimidated by the hole in his chest. Now that Ive started working on the model, its great fun.
    I was really dragging my feat on Ashley's model I guess I realized subconsciously that I don't really want to make her model after all :)

    I dont really like the costume of Thane, although his head looks great its not likely I'll make him.

    After Legion I guess I don't have too many ME models I'd like to build, Kei-9, Samara, and the female Ursa Heavy Armor from ME1 comes to mind. but neither has a really high priority in my mind right now.

    Ive been working on the model. so far so good, but the ragged edges and the size of that hole will make building interesting. The head and torso parts dont connect edge to edge so that will need some remodeling too but overall progress is good.

    Heres a pic just to show the amount of pipes this model has :p (i didnt work on those yet)

    Basic simplification of the head and torso is completed.
    Ive deleted a few internal pipes but most are still there cut to size and tweaked so they don't intersect. I've also recreated the spice since the object was way to complex.
    Here is a pic.

    I've also found a nice external battery box with a standard DC plug on it and it gave me an idea to make Legion flashlight head actually be an LED light. Just thinking what i could make of the idea, not sure i'll actually build LED's in.

    Just a process update:

    Its been a hectic 2 weeks and it'll likely to continue.
    The model is simplified for unfolding and i think ill make the LED lighting after all too.

    So process is slow but steady.

    (No new pics this time.)

    Finished the, unfolding and the texture work on Legion.

    And now i cant decide which one to actually build. I always remember Legion with his default skin because the alt is usually opened so late in the game, and ME3 has him with that one too, but i actually like the white skin much better, especially because the N7 armor is much more pronounced.

    Oh well here are some pics:

    Unfolding is done. Added a small box for him to stand on because i needed a place for the batteries. :)

    Finished with the smaller head-lights. I'm using fiber-optics and a central LED for them.

    Totally awesome! I like the intelligent use of fiber optics. People should consider using them more than having LED's running every where, if you can get away with it. It also makes changing the bulb easier as there will be less to change and you can locate it for easy removal. :)
