    Operation Meteor: Part 3

      Don’t be fooled – he’s wearing the armor, but it’s held together by tape right now – none of it is actually strapped and ready for paint yet. We still have quite a few kinks to work out.

Regardless, the actual Titan suit is just about 100% done now – the only things left are finishing up the ranger/trooper…
