Do you have any plans now that the official design has been revealed?
I'm gonna keep going with what I have done and planned. I will change the coloration of the handle to match, and I had already planned to have the back blades and gun barrels rotate to different positions. I always wondered if a blade would come out the back of the main blade when it goes into scythe mode, and now that's been answered. Unfortunately I don't think there is a way to add that to this build. Right now I have some gears coming from eBay for the body, and I'm working on the gun barrels, back blades, and rest of the housing. Also planning on how I want the gears to spin.

UPDATE!!
Here are some more pics of what I've gotten done in the past few days:

Made some changes to how I wanted the blade to attach to the body. I was finding it difficult to find a way to get into the main housing to turn the bolt, especially once I started adding the gears. So I opted to get some cam bolts and cams to replace the screw. Now all it takes is one turn of an allen wrench to engage or disengage in different positions. They're not locked in place just yet as I have to add a block of wood inside the housing so the screws have something to grip into.

Made an outline for the rest of the housing. These will cut out and stack two on each side to add volume to the sides. More on that when I get them cut out. I also got my order of Lego gears. I've been tinkering around to find the best set up inside the housing, and I've devised a way to have the gears appear and spin on both sides of the housing now. I also tested the fan that I'm using to spin the gears. Works good :)

I'm having a hard time contemplating how impressed I'm going to be after you put this all together when I compare it to how impressed I have been so far by your progress. :confused Not to confuse you even more. lol. Solid work so far! Keep it up! This is going to be one sick weapon.

So I guess I did give you some sort of headstart on other Qrow cosplayers hahahaha
Yep lol. I've seen only a few cosplayers so far, and most of them don't have the weapon. Let alone a weapon that can transform.

Seeing this come to life makes me very happy. Good luck with the red edge. I'll try to think of how you could make it work too

UPDATE!
I have this whole week off, so my end goal is to get as much done as possible, maybe even finish it. Although, while drilling holes for the gears, I got a little crazy with the drill and ended up breaking the fan. New fan is on the way, so I'll have to wait for that at least. Here are some more pics:

Made a little spot to hold the 9V to run the fan. Made the small blades for scythe mode. Who knew they'd make great little daggers lol. Last pictures show how I have to make indents for the nuts to fit into so they don't stop the blade from connecting when it goes into Gun Mode.

More pics to come soon.

Getting really close to being done with this build. I'm still fiddling around with the gears, and I just found out I need to add an extra pin for each position for better support. The weight of the blade is making the single pins strain, and I fear they may even attempt to pull out. Here are some pics:

Watching that video is quite informative. Great work on bringing the scythe to life! You better have a costume to complete the look before PAX :cool

Gonna order the shirt and cape tomorrow. It's funny, I can build stuff like this easily, but when it comes to needle point I'm the worst lol

Each edge is about 2.7-3 inchs lower from its match it seems. In the real thing all the edges are parallel except for the very top edge which is a little more pointed and rounded on the front edge line. you can find the angle of the edge/sections by connecting the two points.So basically, mark how far of a line you need for it to reach that lower point after you decide on a idea width for your blade so you can then find the angle of the edge.
