    Here is the beginning of my version of Defensor. I'm not sure what vehicles I am going to use to complete the combined form. I'm using the Mudflap mold in an unconventional way by sectioning part of it to become Hotspot. The back 2/3 will become the main body of Defensor, with Hotspot as a leg, and then 3 other vehicles to become the other three limbs.

    I am not planning on using a motorcycle for a limb due to the size difference of a motorcycle and full size vehicle. I might use a M cycle as a head, if I can get a decent looking head to form from a bike design and be a robot.

    On to the photos and descriptions:
    I found a use for the Classics G1 Optimus mold. I combined it with the cab of Mudflap to give me a seperate cab. I wish the vehicle didn't have the extra gap between the cab and trailer but it was neccesary to form Hotspot.

    Hotspot has a little bit of the Fatimus Prime problem that E Prime has. It would take better modifying skills, than I have, to change that with this combination.
    I didn't take a photo of it but Hotspot now has a spot to carry the Matrix, if it was passed to him, in the bumper. (get in my belly)
    [​IMG][​IMG]


    Now for the combined mode your going to need a little imagination, since I could not get left foot and C Clocker to support the main body, properly.
    I might use Clocker for this part but I haven't done any modifications, yet, to that mold.
    The rear bumper, becomes the left foot, so you have somewhat matching toes just like the Mudflap mold has. (except it is still in the bumper form to match the front bumper of the right foot). I just need to find molds for an ambulance and rescue vehicle to become the arms. The head of Mudflap can still become the head of Defensor until I figure out about a motorcycle/robot/head.

    Hopefully everyone likes my idea but let me know what you think, either way.
    Later.

    like the idea may only worry is the size of him. With my one am using the same Prime ladder. so they are in the same size range for my classics geasults.

    But i like what you have done so far am looking forward to seeing him finished

    I'm planning on having him with my G1 bots, and the other combiners and minibots, I have re-done. Classics, Ultra Magnus, is scheduled to become Motormaster.

    Also on the plate is Predaking. Thanks to Takara/Hasbro releasing Nemisis Breaker, I now have a Razorclaw. Modified TM Rhinox as Headstrong. Universe TM Cheetor as Rampage. Universe Lion (can't remember name from Beast machines) as Tantrum. Finally, What was origonally a U Silverbolt combined with U Tigerhawks wings but is now scrapped for a Ramjet with Zoid wings as Divebomb.

    Not sure how well they are going to combine but time will tell.

    Nothing like, going off topic, in my own thread.

    But anyone of you fellow combiner fans, There are two Japanese versions of BW Magmatron, at amazon.com for $34.99. I almost bought one, to sell, but decided not to. I already have one for my self from the US release.
    http://www.amazon.com/Beast-Wars-D-35-Magmatron-Exclusive/dp/B000MYHXU4/ref=sr_1_214/102-2111352-1791349?ie=UTF8&s=toys-and-games&qid=1179866725&sr=1-214
    Thought I would point it out.

    On topic: The blue color of Mudflap is what made me think of Hotspot. I wonder if a remold, was ever planned, if he sold well? I just didn't like how huge he became in robot mode. He was a long vehicle but I like this version better.

    i don't see why you did that to be honest. i'd have just repainted bits, given a different head and a ladder instead of a crane and viola

    In my little world, all the transformer vehicles, are "to scale", with one another and then they have slightly closer sizes in there bot modes. Then, when a group, combines, the height is larger because it is the combined height, of at least two of them. (legs and torso)

    If the G1 Devastator vehicles were about the same size as the other vehicles, then Devy would have been an awesome size, when combined.

    Also, Motormaster could have been just his cab, for bot mode, and then combined with his trailer to form Menasor. Thats what my Kitbash will do. (hopefully)

    If you like them the way they are then you can build your Defensor any way you like.

    (I got a laugh from your sig)

    I love where you're headed here. If Clocker is to become Streetwise, then I assume that one of the E Combaticon copters will become Blades...who will you convert into First Aid? Using Cyb Red Alert would screw up the scales if the others are scout class....

    Is the new movie going to have a basic Ratchet? I could use his rescue vehicle, maybe. otherwise I don't know. That"s part of why its a WIP.

    There is an ambulance vehicle, in the toy package, where the ladder is from. I might make a fake limb until something comes along.

    I wish there was a deluxe or basic E-vac. He would make a cool First-aid

    There's not even a basic pricepoint, unless you're counting the (apparently Target exclusive) Energon/Cybertron repaints.
