    I don't suppose anyone has ever actually kitbashed an entire gestalt?

    For me, the biggest problem with even considering doing a custom Gestalts set has always been the sheer amount of work involved. I mean, personally, I usually don't have near enough time to do the work I wish I could on kitbashes, so tackling a 5-car team would be pretty darn difficult.

    If you look around between here, transtopia (www.tfmaster.com) and the other TF fandom sites, you might find some custom gestalts that ARE worth noting. One of my favorites is the completely posable custom Devastator. Think "G1 toy plus Energon/Cybertron poseability." It rocks.

    I made a gestault out of six alternators, but no connections. 2 sideswipes, 2 smokescreens, shockwave, and hound. It looks believeable. (edit)ROAD KAISER .

    On Ebay right now there is a G1 Dinobot gestalt for sale. Love the head.

    Kinda not really no.

    I've repainted the following a la masquarade, though:
    20OP = Motormaster (Black cab, purple connecting are, not trailer)
    Alt Sideswipe = Breakdown
    Alt Jazz = Dead End (proper colors w/ stirpes :thumbs2:  )
    Alt Windcharger = Wildrider
    And as soon as Alt Mirage is released, I shall have my Dragstrip. :D 

    Sadly though, the ability to form Menasor will be forever lost to them, :(  unless of course via the miracle of Photoshop.


    I regret that I have no digicam to take pics with. :redface2:

    Fordperfect, with a little ingenuity and some extra pieces, you could easily make a believable head, chestplate, hands and feet. I'd go for it if I were you.

    Prior to breaking into the business, Don was best known for an online comic based on his scratch built toys - The Macromasters. There were many amazing toys he created from basically nothing, among them four Decepticons that turned into alien military vehicles, and then merged to form a fully articulated and self-contained gestalt by the name of War Monger. That boy's got skills.

    I've made a few gestalts, but I can't say that they were in the same league as what's been talked about.

    I made one with:

    Armada Prime (Powerlinx)
    Armada Prime (Gold)
    Powermaster Prime
    Apex Bomber
    Overload
    Ultramagnus
    Armada Jetfire (he was the jet pack).
    A bunch of Minicons, bits of RID Magnus

    Ultra Op 01
    Ultra Op 02

    Then there's the Infinity Saber that I pieced together.

    I gave arms to Europe's Rescue force.

    Negakaiser

    To a lesser degree there's my Energon Superion hand and foot endeavor.

    A very lanky Rubicon that I got carried away with.

    Larger hands for Lio Kaiser that hold energon weapon, and his own blaster.

    Also, there's the Defensor that's in my sig. I also did stuff with Sixwing. I guess you could say that I got a little combiner happy.

    I found Tyrannoking on Trantopia. That thing was amazing. Hasbro, Takara and E-hobby ought to contact him to find out what the creator did and make it official.

    Thanks! You'd be surprised at the amount of flack I'd gotten from some people for even altering Superion at all. It's one of those "to each his own" kind of things. :)

    That's very well done. Does the main body transform into a separate bot also?

    TFMaster made an incredible Alt. Menasor that combines and everything. Pictures do not do it justice, seeing it in person is the shiznit.

    this thread has inspired me to do another custom repaint... G1 Strafe's new quote? "Conquest is made of the ashes of ones enemies."
