My UW Devastator I finished a while back... Was shooting for the screen accuracy from 86’
I didn't know there was one but with the breastplate locking into those slots over the combiner ports the way they do he honestly has the best shoulder config, most stable, doesn't move around when you articulate at the port, and solid feel of any of the Torsos with the recent exception of maybe starscream. I wouldn't know why you would want it different other than for looks.
Not sure if this is what you mean...
This is what the Brute's shoulders typically (or officially) look like, with Onslaught's fist up top.
There's a slot near the combiner port and a tab on the chest armor that holds it together, making it a very solid configuration for articulation.
But you can rotate it backwards so the wheel faces forwards.
The port can still be used (and is now accessed from the top, meaning you don't have to open and close the chest plate every time you want to switch limbs) and the chest plate still closes all the way even if it doesn't lock.
This gives him a sleeker profie up top without the awkward shoulder pillars, even if it does reduce stability and add a little visible kibble on either side of the chest.
... and the shoulders can wiggle around when you try and articulate the upper arms if you do it that way where as the intended way has Bruticus as one of the only combiners without that problem inherently.
I WANT THAT IRONHIDE!!! but I suck at painting, is that for sale?
Was really hoping for a UW set of the Dinobots,but after todays news doesnt look like thats happening,which is a bummer.
Really? I though it says takara was reviving the uw line for the dinobots
The figures are all listed individually for preorder meaning no boxsets
I may have a Computron problem. 5 total. UW, CW, Mix Match Perfect edition, and 2 left over part swaps one of which is the previous pic although I don't really see him as Computron per say.
Hasbro's dream of a great Betatron has been achieved.
That is the best custom combiner I have ever seen. Whats his name?
Happy weekend everybody! Fist bump!
Superion vs Kongzilla
Class of 86’
Cool pics for the CHUG Appreciation Thread... this one, not so much.
Thanks. No name yet. Still a wip. In my attempt to part swap a perfect Scattorshot for my "MP" Computron I bought 3 version had two of the other versions left over after. Both of which had been part swapped before I received them. I suppose he could be Betatron and the other could be Alphatron, also still a wip. I need another Stryfe but AT doesn't have to have a full set of United limbs. Also until I get the other head painted I'm using the PC head. I do plan on painting it's face plates to match takara's.
I figure that alpha and beta can stand in when Computron isnt who they need.
Little cheating. Removed 3 pieces that pop off.
I wasn't the first to do this, but I was in the first few, and other than a couple of places that need to be painted I'm pretty much done with this.
It uses the PC stomach set and with a little trimming on the original hinge the original flap can be used. That is Scamper from Metroplex to give him power boost.
Autobots heros platinum set had combiner wars ultra magnus in it, so technically it's a combiner wars conglomerate.
That's the takara version of TR Hotrod, so a continuation of cw...
Seems like these belong in here to me?
