    To complement my Classics Seacons/Piranacon i've started on a Beast Wars version of these guys.

    The limbs themselves will all be roughly voyager size and Snappy himslef will be an ultra.

    Snaptrap-For this guy, I was influenced by Chinese mythology and decided to make him a Turtle-Dragon. Far cooler than a regular turtle. The shell is the same design as the Classics shell I nade. The beast mode head is designed to come off in bot mode and reattach somewhere else (little surprise). For a more interesting attchment, I integrated a ball-bearing into the head and a magnetic "cup" into the neck which allows excellent articulation and a much cleaner attchment point.

    Overbite- is made from a BW metals shark and hews more closely to the original Overbite in terms of looks. Not much in the way of radical redesigns here.

    Nautilator-This guy is made from a BW Rampage and some random beast former bot I found. His arms are long and gangly to imply his awkward. clumsy personality. He will also be a Quad-former, becoming the lobster/crab, bot, gun and weapons array. His arms also quad-change as they become feet for the weapons mode also. He retains Nautilator's signature triple barreled gun.

    The other guys will actually be similar in design to the classics seacons i'm amking as their asthetic is quite similar to the BW asthetic.

    They WILL combine and I may employ the same magnetic cup&ball set up for some of the combiner parts depending on how strong they are and if they are able to support the weight .

    UPDATE

    Here's a very early WIP for Tentakil. I sculpted the face in about 10 minutes and I think it's a little too rushed. I could either scrap it or keep sculpting away at this one.

    What think?

    I chose the Crosovers Human Torch TF which I imagine not many people would. I think it works well and has some nice squid like features that can be pulled from it.

    Finally have time to do some more work on these guys. I settled on a design for the helmet. I cobbled it together from some random parts from Gundam kits, Monster Hunter toys etc.

    Once again, kickass. :) 

    Good to see someone do the dragon turtle, I've wanted to see a TF of one for ages! You pulled it off really well.

    Hey man, size matters. This is sweet, reminds me a bit a my abominus I'm making, but you clearly have more experience. Where'd you come by the magnetic cup for the neck joint?
