Wink Ahw jeezz not another DEVY .... lolz!

FORGOT PICS OF LONGHAUL ALTMODE, ALL WIP-PICS ARE @ LASTPAGE!(

EXTRA ADDED YOUTUBE VIDEO REVIEW:
Transformers Custom Devastator Classics Style Combiner - YouTube

UPDATE1: Cut UNI in 2 pieces

UPDATE2: Salvaged the complete arms, keeping everything intact!

UPDATE3: Cut the legs, not a hard job.. but was kinda scary!

UPDATE4:
Well since it was mentioned that I might swap the Japanese MIB Landfill/Buildking, with other... So I set myself a challenge!!
What if I could build a rigid CUSTOM DEVY, without destroying or modifying parts of the Landfill/buildking Upper-body....
I studied the toy and just like my previous combiner, lego pegs seem to fit about everywhere!!!!?????!!
Check out the pics... bare in mind, that only the lego pieces will be fused togehter and the Landfill team remains unharmed
(this sacrifices a little G1 accuracy off course, but I think it's a cool challenge... now the shoulder will be even wider, because I use a different transformation, which will allow me the use lego in the bottom of Hightower without any work!)

UPDATE 5:
Yes i've done it... the glue and hot fusion of the lego parts work perfect!!
And even Landmine is unharmed Check out the pics

UPDATE 6:
Well guys Barricade was already incomplete.. and just copied the method found here on the boards And like he said, it's a super tight fit!!
Now I go to sleep and hopefully find a way connecting Hook onto Longhaul without modifying

UPDATE 7:
Well I guess I couldn't sleep ..... YES ITWORKED!!!!
I'm so happy now... even hook remains unharmed
(and to tell you guys the truth... so will Demolishor/Longhaul )

UPDATE 8:
Did some more sculpting on the head and created a chestpiece, that also connects to the Lego-Devy-Combiner-module

MASTER UPDATE 9:
Well I guess you could say the basics are completed, just some upgrades here and there... O and the shoulder cannon, when reversed is gonna be a handgun + once again connects into the default holes in Hightowers feet

UPDATE 10:
I've finalized the complete body mode (except head/neck thing) by making it fine for my standards
and again here to front piece of the shoulder cannon pegs into the default holes from ex-Unicron's left arm module!

UPDATE 11:
Made some upgrades & changes to the BFG's, chestpiece and head!

UPDATE 12:
First coats on the head, I'm keeping the mustache for now
Painted the BFG (gun mode).. will do shouldercannon-mode later!

UPDATE13:
Strengthening to the arm connectors

UPDATE14:
Strengthened the main body connectors
(g*ddamn, every MixMaster gets hijacked... maybe I'll use a Marjorette.. found 9 of the same type for 40euro's or 6,5 for 1piece complete plastic except the cab, but I guess it's better than nothing and waiting)

UPDATE15:
Finally got the nerves of grabbing my MISB ROTF Mixmaster..
and smashed it to pieces ... just 30min work so far

UPDATE16:
Build is finally at 98% some tweaks here and there and then ready for paint I'm psyched!!!

UPDATE17:
Eventhough Mixmaster needs some tweaking and gonna start painting the other leg (forgot his name) I mixed some Seiden Matt (semi flat) Revell paints to get these results, I didn't have more paint to get the purple closer to G1 but I guess it's good enough for me

UPDATE18:
Disaster struck after the first coat of green...
My GF tried to help me but forgot the paint-jar was next to me and flipped it over

UPDATE19:
Finally mixed another green, but little bit different..
Since my flash makes it look metallic I thought I'd post a NON-flash + flash + HI-key (overexposure) shots

UPDATE20:
Yes I can finally reveal some greenified (I know that's not a word) plastic

UPDATE21:
Rightleg (forgot the name, former Cybertron Landmine) is 95% done

UPDATE22:
Well some place I couldn't get by so I skipped those, mainly because some parts where fused or had pins and I said to myself no pin-removal on this giant, still really happy with the results

UPDATE23:
Looks like the paint is a little off ... it's even darker green now
I don't know what to do...
1. continue painting which leaves a colour difference in the waist/pelvis/(right)leg ... or try to buy more yellow paint to hopefully get closer to the first green I used (since Hightower doesn't attract to much attention in combined mode, behind the massive chestshield )

UPDATE24:
Yep I changed the purple and ME LIKEY!!
I know finally have lots of Green and Purple to finish this sucker!!

UPDATE25:
4 DOWN 2 TO GO

UPDATE26:
5th completed... + combiner parts

UPDATE27:
DONE!!!
just few touchups left... and still decide and try changing the drum

TODO:
-Upgrade Neck/Head (waiting for inspiration or swap it by buying a custom-devy head here from the boards)

RE-UPDATE28:
Finally got the balls to get this done in few hours left before packing most combiner custom due to a big move on the 4Nov....
Anyways I ordered a Head on Shapewayd + another G1 perfect addition is on it's way as we speak!
Then decided to put the non-mod disclosure asside and thank god/satan managed the incorporated the connector inside the shoulder bots!!
now I already love it so much I'm not gonna go for Primus hands anymore (although I could make an extra set or design a shapeways G1 version)

TODO:
make the ROTF Mixmaster swappable and add a G1 cab [/B]

RE-UPDATE29:
as you can see I finally found a pic a the new "optional" cab...
that same one is already complete but can't post the finished work, since I myself have even seen it on Devastator cuz it still packed due to the move!
EXTRA: since I gave up trying to find a non metal one, after I finished the one in the final picture, yeah how ironic I came across a plastic one so it'll be planC

I wonder how many Armada Unicrons will be left for future generations?


"See, Armada Unicron goes for 1000 dollars on ebay because back in the day, customizers used him to make custom Devastators"

Well if somebody could tell me the difference and maybe offer a replacement 3 robots, then I might make someone happy without using these?? but they would have to be in good shape (like tight joints)

DO IT!!!! Take it apart man, tear it up and out of its pathetic ashes, a Devastator will rise...

JK - It is without question worth it. The more gutsy move is making a Devastator.

Hrmn, I should still have the yellow repaints lying around...I'll try and see if I can find those for you if you want, maybe you could resell that Japanese boxset with a nice profit then.

Btw, can't wait to see how this will turn out. I don't think any Dutch customizers have attempted making a Devvy yet, so you have a scoop there!
