    Thomas and Transformers unofficially coexist already with that chinese train combiner. Don't we need a villain? I was looking at my son's Thomas toys and noticed that the Sodor Construction Crew are close in size to G1 Constructicons. I certainly do not have the time or talent to do this but I hope to inspire someone that does.

    Check these pictures out and tell me what you think.

    Sorry if I forced a reveal for you. I think this would be a great custom. Look at a Target near you if you need extra Thomas parts. Several have been marked down as much as 75% in Orlando.

    Yeah I wish I waited -- I ended up paying about $10 for each fig on eBay. :( 

    Ah well. And the only reason I haven't made a WIP in Radicons yet is simply due to the fact that I should be farther along with this by now, but had to set it aside for a few months as other things came up.

    Its been a fun little challenge so far, this will be much like the Supreme ROTF Dev in the sense that the vehicles only turn into gestalt parts, I'm not adding bot modes for the individual figs. Getting them to combine and still function as vehicles is tough enough. Gonna try to hide all the connectors to be built-in, with the only extra kibble being much like the G1 Dev: head, waist, and forearms/hands.

    Look for a WIP thread soon though. :D
