    Awesome, I just noticed the "CAT" CON Stickers (genius). I have been in love with this when I first saw it, I wish I can build one one day. Also 3D prints in that size look amazing. I'm not sure if I said this already but outstanding job.

    I really like the dissembled photo you have that makes him look like a giant backdrop.
    You need some more Cobra agents in that photo.

    Moooooooooooooooooooooore! Show us more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I read 48" tall, but it didn't really register that that translates to 4 feet until I saw the couch & bathroom pics. That thing is huge!!!!

    Extremely impressed. Six years in the making, but totally worth it.

    Thanks. Yeah, pulling that small cantaloupe sized Devastator head out of the box was super cool. It honestly would be a neat display piece on it's own.

    As for the decals, I wanted to keep the brand consistent between all of the vehicles, but not all of them are CAT models. So I came up with CON to unify. There are also some smaller "CONSTRUCTICON" logos and Decepticon logos on some of them too. And if you look at the alphanumeric truck IDs, I tried to creatively hint at their character names.

    That actually would've made for some really cool photos. Some scaffolding and scissor lifts. Maybe an arm or leg being delivered on Bruders loader truck.

    I could still do it, but I put my "studio" away so that I could get my shop back.

    So flipping cool. Really excellent work. Being able to put MAS01 in the mix is really icing on the cake.

    Thanks. Yeah, when I found out MAS01's scale (1:18th), I was soooooo excited to give Bruderstator and knocked-up Sideswipe a buddy. MAS01 is so cool and elevates everything around him. Sorta like a hot chick that makes all her friends look better. :D 

    If I was single (my wife would NOT tolerate a project of this magnitude again), I'd tackle Menasor and Bruticus. They have relatively cheap and available components. Superion would get really pricey in accurate 1:18th and not all of the jet models are available.

    I forgot about this guy. This is still an awesome custom. I love seeing it scale with the other figures...and on the crapper.
