FinalRanger AlphaPurple required some head sculpting so that I could preserve the gimmick yet still give him a Dragonfly-style helmet.

Here's the head without the cowl, facing both ways, plus a blacklight look. I used Apoxie Clay to sculpt the helmet over his human face.

And now, the entire group!

Now for the villains! Diabolide is Emperor of the Meteor Men, whose meteor crashed into the Moon in 20XX. Made from Diabol, the ACRM Razor pack, the Kharn Brute pack (most of it), and Andra's cloak from MotU Revelation. Also some Apoxie Clay.

And now Diabolide's minions, the Meteor Men!

And since I got some 68-LED UV flashlights this week:

(Nothing special about the chest paint, I think that's reflections from the sword glow.)

Fantastic! I'm actually using Ruck to make a 1:18 set of Centurions. These things are so fun. I have a whole Kharn army and I'd say I spent less than one Leader Class Transformer on them.

Completing the usual rainbow (since Indigo rarely gets a Ranger slot), it's Churro as AlphaOrange!

Here it is with a non-weapon tail and no gun, with and without UV light:

And finally, with weapons, normal and under UV:

In closing, orange is a pain to work with, and I ended up buying new orange paints and redoing all the orange parts because the first paint looked so bad.

Even hordes of Meteor Men couldn't overwhelm the FinalRangers, so Diabolide sought willing traitors among the human militaries. The first to join his cause became General Tektite (built from the Riptide figure).

And since I have UV flashlights, here's how the temperature sensitive studs glow:

The second human willing to betray humanity and throw in his lot with Diabolide (and maybe also AlphaBlue's brother), Major Fireball is an aerial ace and plans to take power for himself the moment Diabolide shows signs of weakness...Starscream, but more cautious and patient. Hair is made from Apoxie Clay, painted silver and then painted with Tamiya clear, the closest I can get to faking clear plastic.

Third of the Dark Rangers, Commander Crater is too stupid to think of betraying Diabolide, but also not smart enough to be very effective, he ends up on a lot of diversion missions.

He's not intended to be seen without the helmet, but since gluing it onto the head would have made assembly very hard, I just dyed the Ruck head and painted the eye metallic orange.

(The deep dark hole isn't shopped or anything, I used Black 3.0 on it.)
