    I decided to go back to the very first kitbash concept I ever did of the Tonka-based Devastator...and build another with more posability, cleaner colors & classic face with a light-up visor. Everything but the Tonka trucks is scratch-built. I always loved this character, and I wanted the personality of Devastator to particularly come out in his facial expression and hand-articulation. He stores the original Devastator toy in Longhaul's bed and Megatron on his side. I built this one for a friend of mine to compliment his collection, and will be displayed at Botcon this year.​

    Hey buddy, I'm glad you finally decided to post! I really hope you will frequent here more, if for nothing else so we can keep in touch better! :) 

    One of the things I really enjoy about this piece (as with all of your work) is how well you present your work. I think once everyone sees your gallery, it's clear that you jumped right in to adhere to the Radicon's standard for excellence. Working on your gallery, I kept telling myself, "this is one gallery among many that I've had the pleasure to work on that just shines in all areas." It's such a pleasure to be able to host such a gallery. :) 

    Thanks for being a good example of a Radicon :)

    I saw this some time ago...somewhere, but I don't remember. This is some serious work!!! As a kid, I always wanted Tonka trucks that transformed into constructicons, now you made my dream come true.

    Great job!!!

    This is so awesome beyond words. Saw the original a while back and was floored at the size but seeing you stand next to it only shows how awesome he really is. Cant wait to see him at Botcon, he needs a nice construction site diorama to be displayed on....get to work. :D
