    3rd one down...just a couple more to go(i haven't even primed brawl or blast off yet but soon though...)donor bot was energon bulkhead but again,a few small mods.his head is bulkheads original,just with his ears chopped down,goggles removed and a visor added.his mouth and robo -mustache thing was sanded completely off into a mouth plate ala g1.his stock twin launchers on his legs are still functional,i just have to track down some missiles.the launchers have also had a small steel bar fused to each of them at a certain area for something fun later on.his rotor spinning action still works too.iv'e also added another set of twin cannons just in front of his main rotor.the 2 twin cannons on his nose in copter mode just mount into 2 stock holes.the booster jets on his tail are from a green "zoids" dinosaur thing.the most noticable change in bot mode is the addition of 5 cannon barrels per shoulder and the head.once the grey cured,i like the color so much i tried not to over do it with the purple and blue areas,yet some how make him as g1-ish as possible.the last two pics of him in battlecopter mode are just a couple of teasers for what's coming soon.the two ginormouse armnaments house multiple rows of cannon tips and mortar launchers.to attach them,put them just close to each other and the strong magnets do the rest.then swoop down with vortex and voila...kickass copter!!.(remember the previously mentioned "steel bars"?)the grey color is duplicolor enamel,the blue and blacks are tamiya acrylics,all coated in krylon matte clear.
    ....and yes,i know....it was coming.....let the robo balls/devi balls jokes commence!!!!

    WOW! Thats....wow! Is it just me or does Vortex have a ball joint projuding from the middle of his pelvis. LOL Sorry for that its funny as hell.

    But still Vortex looks so badass with all those weapons.

    @thyvipera

    Its energon bulkhead "or energon quickstrike, its the same mold as bulkhead just redeco'd", the silver cannons are unicrons forearms :p 

    Speaking of that, nice use of combiners bits outside of combined mode :D

    Great work on the head! The rocket launcher additions are a great touch. Yep, I'm counting on that too. :thumb

    ^^^ LOL what he said. I saw that too, I was like, Bruticus' left shoulder goes THERE?! Other than that strange little tidbit, SICK. Vortex is my favourite Combaticon and you pulled him off beautifully, bulkier with an attitude, great colours.(Used to use the G1 copter blades to chop down Lego guys :D )

    thanks man!

    thanks,and yeah,he's gonna be pretty sizable:drool: 

    no,it's not just you.it's unfortunate where the ball joint ended up and i couldn't even cut/shave it down more or else it'll limit bruticus's posability.we'll just call it his "control stick":sly2: 

    thanks,but there's another upcoming use for most of the combining bits too!

    thanks!
    thanks for the comments!in the end,the only reason i didn't make him a hand gun was because i felt he had enough small arms on him.

    you and me both,it would have saved me alot of time!!lolz!!

    lolz!!i hear you,and thanks for the comments!!mucho appreciated!!

    Throw another ball joint somewhere in the same general area and he could be ROTF Devi's little brother! On a more serious note, Vortex looks great! The mold fits him quite well. Nice job on the paint too. Wow this is gonna be one big combiner... I can't wait to see the rest!
