Action Pose – Fansproject Weirdwolf Balance

Fansproject Weirdwolf.

In alt mode.

Balancing.

On one paw.

That's not a wolf tail. He just likes to store the sword in his butt.

It reminds me of a robot wolf on ice-skates.

 

So, dear readers, do you ever balance tiny plastic giant robots in strange positions? How could Weirdwolf balance like that without an ankle tilt?

  1. That is kinda crazy.

    Stop making me want things. I’d decided to put the Fansproject headmaster guys behind me, but just last night, I was contemplating “Quadruple U”, and here you are, stoking the fire.

    Of course, I don’t see myself displaying him in this pose, but should I need a robot wolf ice capades kind of thing, it’s mighty comforting to know that he’s up to the task. Dare I assume that more conventional poses work similarly well?

  2. Glad you noticed, Gobot Grimlock! :D

    Heli, I can very much recommend the FP Headmasters. I didn’t buy Code because I don’t really care about that character, and the colors are kind of crappy on the alt mode, but the transformation scheme does cool and unexpected things. Quadruple U’s transformation is the same, with the bot mode torso slimming and lengthening to match up with the bot mode legs to make the wolf torso.

    If you’ve ever handled the RiD version of the TF Prime Vehicon, it’s a similar thing. The transformations are complex, but smooth and not frustrating.

    So if that’s something that appeals to you, they’re worth it.

    As for posing, a lot of people complain about how the shoulders on Quadruple U don’t have a lot of range from the side outward. Forward and back is fine, but the bot can’t do a T shape. That doesn’t bother me, but a lot of people really don’t like that.

    It’s not like the shoulders are just swivels, though. They are actually balljoints with the cup end in a hinge piece. They can do a /|\ shape, just not a T shape. Considering there are missile pods on top of the bot’s shoulders, I’m okay with that.

    Everything else on it is just fine, if not above average. There’s even a waist swivel.

    And if you want an example of how poseable it is, there’s always this.

  3. I’m starting to cave.

    I briefly owned Code and did find his transformation very neat. Ultimately, though, he got sold because I just didn’t like him enough to keep him. That had a lot to do with my just thinking the design was clunky and the colors were bland. Plus I didn’t have the nostalgia goggles, since I never had Chromedome as a kid.

    However, I DID have Weirdwolf and always thought he was pretty cool; hence the temptation for this guy. Seems like he can do some pretty nifty things with his articulation, too.

    I think you should get me one for Christmas. :)

  4. YOU’LL GET COAL AND YOU’LL LIKE IT.

    Those are pretty much the same reasons why I didn’t buy FP Code. With so many great options and so many of them being expensive, it takes more than just “This looks cool” to get me to buy it.

    For the most part.

    I didn’t own Weirdwolf as a kid, but I wanted to. So that probably has something to do with me liking it. :)
