    I was planning on using these feet on POTP Volcanicus, but I am amazed how great they look on Victorion. One hand was on Galvatronus, the other in the spares box. The feet give her the appearance of trodding through the Sea of Rust.

    I used a combination of the DNA Designs DK-01 and X2 Toys XS001 kits on my Devastator. I'll post a pic of it tomorrow for you if you want.

    Devastator with upgrades. He has the X2 Toys Mixmaster cab, purple leg fillers,hip plates, shoulder and forearm pieces. The hands are from the DNA Designs kit. I was going to use the DNA kit's Mixmaster cab, but it fell apart while I was installing it. Devastator is also decked out with Reprolabels.

    Not quite Christmas, but we did some gingerbread house building tonight. Devy did the opposite.

    Apologies beforehand for no pics - since Photobucket screwed everyone over I have no idea how to put pictures in posts anymore aside from attachments and I don't like that. ANYWHORE

    I just got CW Liokaiser for Christmas. Despite being all repaints I fucking love it - Liokaiser was always just in the realm of Japanese enough yet Transformers enough to stroke both my weeb and TF fan side. Also I never owned Sky Lynx and finally getting to mess with the mold in person I love it. The animal themed headsculpts are awesome, finally getting to play with a micron is awesome, the colors are awesome... this might be my favorite CW set yet.

    That being said... are there any good upgrade kits out for it? I know the PE hands and feet are still common and will probably get those if I can, but anything else out there? Sky Lynx came in late so I imagine there aren't a lot of kits out there for it (also it's torso mode is objectively one of the best next to MAYBE Superion). Anything to make the toy more super-roboty or closer to the original in look? If not that's fine - I fucking love this toy as is and he'll have a great place in my collection. Now to find the G1 toy...

    There aren't any dedicated 3P upgrade kits for the Sky Lynx mold, sadly. Maybe Shapeways weapon kits, but nothing mass produced like the PE upgrades for the others.

    Even the 3P hands/feet, he has to pilfer from other combiners.

    Save any images you want to keep and switch to a different image hosting site. I have no camera - and thus no reason to use a hosting site - but I hear Imgur isn't bad. It might be a pain, but I doubt Photobucket is gonna turn back anytime soon.

    As for Liokaiser, I remember someone starting a really ambitious 3D printed upgrade kit that involved turning an Air Raid and a Swindle into a Leozack and Jallguar that combine into a torso, but I don't recall seeing anything coming of it. Aside from that, there's some gun/drill upgrades for Killbison and Drillhorn and some nunchaku for Liokaiser on Shapeways, if you're willing.

    Could someone with Starscream and Fruiticus show how he'd look with the G2 Combaticons.

    If possible please. Many thanks.

    I've been weighing a lot whether to take advantage of the heavy discounts Liokaiser is having lately, but the thing that's stopping me is I don't love the Brawl mode enough to believe that having two of him on the same combiner is a great idea.

    So post Christmas, we have a WAY better representation of the classic Combiners
    G1 Bruticus from the CW Wave
    G2 Superion or with G1 Silverbolt ( Which can look AWESOME depending on how you set him up)
    G2 Menasor or with G1 Motor master
    Defensor with Prowl, Streetwise, Deluxe groove and either iron Hide ( as a fire truck) or Trailbreaker ( Black Police truck)
    Optimus Maximus/ Magnus With Various Carbots but usually Mirage, Sunstreaker, Wheeljack, Smokescreen
    Then
    Sky Reign with Jazz, Swoop, Slug, whichever car/ truck bot is left over from above but usually Traiobreaker.

    Galvatronus has to steal limbs.. except Dreadwind who so far is dedicated to him, Tonight I plan to try DW, Deadend, Vortex and Blast off. One Blackwing and Rippersnapper are released they will be his until Hungrr comes home THEN Galvatronus will be back to just the Dreadwing brothers but I kinda like Glavatronus as a special occasion only combiner

    But that uses up all of my current limbs and leaves only Galvatronus, Dreadwind and which ever Silverbolt and Motor master aren't being used loose.

    Overall I feel like it was a well planned, best cost and most fun/ efficient way to get all the main combiners, a version of most Limb bots without spending to much or getting to many duplicates. I would like offroad, Rook, Alpha Bravo, Blades, First aid, Hound and possibly one G1 Aerial bot just so I have some alternates. But I like where the collection is, adding those guys to the TR/ CW roster we have been piutting together makes for a GREAT looking set up representing the early years of G1 in toy form. I think the Only Major 'con that has been released ( a chugy Shockwave and reflector really havnt been done yet) that I am missing I think is Glavatron, so in my universe he is still a ghost who posseses Cyclonus to make Glavatronus so the character is represented..

    Got the PE PC-18 God Ginrai upgrade today... God Ginrai wasn't the only one happy about it :ev: 

    100_3408_2.jpg
    100_3412_4.jpg

    From the matching gold paint on the hilt, to the way the long handle fits perfectly on the PE hands, and how easily two handed sword poses can be done with combiners... I'm confident this is the intended true owner :thumb
