Hyperion, Assssssemmmmbbbllleeeeddddd!!!

After a bit of hobby work with a knife and a file, I got my Hyperion together!

Some tips on assembly
  • The metal blades on the backs of the hands needed to be bent to fit in the slots
  • The central dark grey piece where the main gun is needed a lot of work. The two halves didn't fit together and the assembled piece didn't fit properly into it's seat. Be ready to bust out your file and get some work done
  • The legs are a bit confusing. I would recommend starting from the hip piece and working outward.  That way you can set the feet on a level area and set the metal connectors between the feet and leg pieces. If you don't, it may not be level as the metal pieces will slot in much further than they need to.
  • The arms/shoulderpads are a bit tricky to get on. You have to set the arm ball in it's socket and then rest the shoulder pads on top. Everything is centered on the arm.

Other than that, it just took me a couple hours to get this guy together. Most of the time was spent filing the middle piece to get it flush and then filing the trim off the shoulder pads.

I'm thinking of doing a black based color scheme to hide the filing and gaps a bit better. Basically black on the armor with gold inlay. Could be cool. If anyone knows of any pics of redemption models that look like that, send em my way!
