    I need to stay busy while awaiting the right parts for my Onslaught. Arms are from Classics Deluxe Optimus, they pop on without modification. Neck balljoint is from a Cybertron Minicon, The Epoxy holding it in place is currently hardening.
    I'm using Movie Longarm's head with Modifications. The Balljoint almost fits his head, i'll just need to do the glue trick thing, it's kinda loose currently. And i took it off so i can Modify it before permanently putting it on there.
    Sorry for the blurriness, it was a quick pic, had no time to set anything up.
    Credit goes to Tonyzcustomz for the arm idea. I would almost have used movie Dreadwind legs like Jinsaotome, untill Shinobitron pointed me to Tony's Warpath.
    I estimate being able to start on the Head and/or Cannon by some time between tuesday and sunday.
    Though i usually prefer a weathered, worn look, i'm going to try a cartoonier one for this one, keeping the drybrushing to a minimum and using just one black wash. To differentiate it from previous Warpaths from this mold, as well as keeping it aestethically closer to Classics 1.0 .

    A little 3M strip caulk (its black and sticky) will do the same thing as the hot glue for the ball joint/neck fix.

    Looks like a fun things to do and those arms look good. I like to see a good use for a mold I never really cared for.

    It shows alot of potential, I look forward to seeing it :] I'm curious as to how you'll get the cannon in place.

    Actually, the Epoxy holding the balljoint in place accidentally spilled a bit over the balljoint, and that seems to have done the trick well enough.

    They leave right about enough room for the barrel to fit between them.

    I gave up on that after a while and bought a second megatron to transfer the left upper arm from that one, to the right shoulder of this one.
