Re: The "what are you working on?" Art thread.

I'm making my own transforming robot toy from scratch. It's Vehicle Team Voltron, made in the style of the 1980s Panosh Place Voltron toy line, which catered only to the more popular Lion Force Voltron.

In addition to transforming into its 15 vehicles, which can form three larger fighters, each of the 15 vehicles will be able to accommodate a 3-3/4" action figure of its pilot.

I sketched the designs onto 1-millimeter-per-square graph paper, and I made crude concept models from foam core and posterboard. Now I'm modeling the designs using Blender, after which -- cost permitting -- I'm going to 3D-print the models using Shapeways.
