    *Dec.28 update:
    -Updated pics and progress on page 4.
    Pics of connectors & weapons on page 3 & 4
    ----------------------------
    -Chest plate separates into Mach's wings and armor for Dash's alt. mode.
    -I've put a rotating disc in the chest plate to put the gun, fist, sword stats on later.
    -Landcross has lots of articulation. There's a ball joint at the waist, hips, knees(?), ankles, and shoulders. Head and hands rotate.
    -The Duo-modes rotate in the middle too.

    Goals:
    -having recognizable/accurate alt modes, and as close as it gets with these stubby little toys for bot modes. Switching the heads to what I think matches up best with the individual bot modes (not the x2-combo heads).
    -A decent looking Landcross mode that won't fly apart when one of the limbs or body figs is 'activated'.
    -Every x2 combination possible!!

    Ask questions, answer mine, add comments, enjoy browsing, peace out.

    This looks awesome, we always need more Bot Shots love. A friend and I keep tossing ideas back and forth on a Bot Shots Menasor.

    I definitely like the first arm configuration better, less kibble is always good. Can't wait to see where this goes! :D

    Cutest idea ever! I agree with Tomiku about the first arm configuration, too.

    I don't even know what this is, but it's a Bot-Shot combiner and that means I love it and I love you.

    Nice, love it! How did you make the pieces your adding to the bot shots? Or are they taken from actual landcross toy?

    ....i love you too.. *eep*...

    Bot Shots make everything good.

    I have been working on a PCC Landcross and have gotten quite into the character over the past couple of years. When Bot Shots started coming out, I wondered if it would be possible, and as it turns out, it's probably gonna be the easiest way to do a Landcross with all combinations possible.

    I love your Bot Shots customs Dude! They look sweet.
    The pieces you see so far are from a couple of different sized Landcross KOs I have. Mach's thrusters are from the larger KO, while his nosecone is from a minicon sized KO. Wing's wings are from another slightly oversized minicon KO (one of the jet's that combine x3 to make the Star Sabre).

    Thanks for the comments and interest. Booooottttt Shoooootttttttts!!!!

    Waver update pictures added on first post.

    Opinions:
    Add the hydrofoil parts to the wheel pins (so they won't spin, and Waver can still roll), or paint the wheels red? Note that adding the pieces on the outside of the wheels means that he will not fit in a launcher, but that doesn't matter so much I suppose.

    Also, which Landcross configuration do you prefer? Closer to G1 shoulders, or less kibble for arms?

    I've appreciated all the great feedback and comments so far, keep them coming!
    Muuullllllllllllltiiiforrrrrrrrrrrce!

    Golly Gee guys, it's good to know I can find love through Bot Shots customs. Love beats fist, sword, and gun! HeeaaaAAAAaaaarrrrt! Send flowers and we'll talk -- Homie loves flowers.

    Waver should be done today. Hope to also get the wings attached to Mach. Thinking of making them detachable to become Landcross's chest plate, like the G1 toy. Will update pics by this evening (Taiwan time), and will include another duo-combined mode.

    HeeaaaAAAAaaaarrrrt!

    Waver done.
    New pics added.
    Some duo-combos added.

    Gonna have to start taking more group pictures. The first post is getting bogged down already. With 30 duo-combinations, 6 vehicle modes, 6 individ. robot modes, and 1 Landcross, that's too many pics!

    Same questions:
    -Which Landcross mock-up do you like better?
    -Hydrofoil pieces added on Waver's wheels or not?

    Tomorrow I hope to get Mach's wings done (want to make them detachable for chest plate).

    I think Waver looks better and more inline with the BS aesthetic sans hydrofoils.

    That's really cool. Kind of ridiculous, but cool.

    (ridiculous in a good way - like "a bot shots combiner? no way, that's crazy!")
