    First of all, I'd like to thank the following people for this work:

    1) Frenzy Rumble: his work inspired me to build my own. His is a creative mind that one can only be inspired from and marvel at the ingenuity of creativity. Thanks a million Mike.
    2) Nemesis PRedaking and Plowing. Both of these guys have helped me with their support and encouragement to masterfully help me, and post it here on TFW2005. Stu, thanks for believing. Thanks guys.
    3) My dad. He helped me with his constructive criticism on the overall appeal and its proportions. He also helped me on the lights and sounds.
    4) Mr. Augustin Tiu. he helped me work on the overall appeal and proportion of this unfinished figure from a Fan's point of view.
    5) Mr. Warren Tan. My inspiration when it comes to paint, customization tips, and just a swell guy. His inputs have been taken to heart when i was doing my WIP. Thanks War.
    6) and all the youtube subscribers, friends, and viewers. Many thanks to you all

    anyway, enough talk.

    about this figure:

    Standing at 19.5 Inches tall, this figure has :
    1) 40 points of articulation
    2) lit up blue LED eyes. Button activates eyes and forehead light with a small button on the top of head.
    3) has 50 Custom made audible Phrases from Defensor's usual lines. Button found inside torso. Chargeable by USB.
    4) Changeable Gun Barrels: lights and sounds.


    Transformations:

    1) 5 protectobots: robots to alternate modes and back
    2) 2 custom Minicons: Search and Rescue.
    3) a O.O.5 androd. (Offensive Operations droid) with 23 guns for some full fire -offensive power. Fully Pose-able.
    4) a repair bay. from his hands and the top portion of the fire engine of hotspot. i added this one since G1 hotspot had a repair bay module mode.
    5) last but not the least, DEFENSOR himself.

    kits used:

    1) 1/12 scale roadbot mitsubishi lancer evo = the head of defensor, thighs, arms, and joints
    2) Universe inferno = for hostpot
    3) Universe blades = as himself with added minor repaints
    4) Universe prowl = for streetwise, with added repaints.
    5) Animated prowl = for groove
    6) Universe ratchet = for first aid
    7) sigma 6 duke armour = defensor's gun and changeable barrels
    8) GZ 013 Zoids Bamburian = Defensor's crotch, missle attachments, hip armors, abdomen
    9) Zoids Dead Border= used as defensor's pectorals, obliques, and chest
    10) Mega Blocks Neo Shifter = used as top of feet and its joints, back of defensor's feet, and calf support
    11) KO hostpot / defensor = KO hostpots body used as defensor's inner body supporting shoulders, defensor's heel, and other parts
    12) Made in China toys = Bootlegs for that predaking -like feet of defensor, first aid's head, and other joints
    13) Unverse ratchet's head used for streetwise. Repainted and remolded.
    14) a 1/14 part of a plastic toy fire truck for the upper half of hotspot/ or the repair bay module.
    15) and lastly, the two pcs legends onslaught. = used here as my custom minicons, SEARCH and RESCUE. when i saw these small little critters, i knew it was perfect for his feet and as a minicon, scout operations.

    used lacquer epoxy spray paints, Acrylic lacquer spray paints, Acrylic clear Laquers and TAMIYA acrylics for hand paints and finer detailings.

    Dude this is..incredible I have never seen a combiner team like this, yeah its got a lot of extra parts but they make him so bad ass looking its totally excusable as far as I'm concerned. He really looks like a warrior and not just some awkward 80ft tall inflexible robot. Id love to see this with some Cons to beat up, illustrate the poseability etc.

    And the young rookie Radicon Ryan Uybengkee steps up to the plate for his first ever at bat
    , with based loaded.
    The pitcher checks all the runners, looks at the batter & chuckles.
    First pitch comes down the pipe, Ryan swings & connects.
    Hard shot to center field, it's going, going GONE !!!!!!
    Grand Slam, GRAND SLAM
    Ryan Uybengkee, with his first at bat has stunned the world !!!!!

    :lol  Ok, so I'm no baseball announcer, but if this was MLB.
    That would be the way the play was called.
    As I have said many times before,
    Simply stunning & outstanding piece.

    Ryan, you have definitely raised the bar on combiners with your Defensor.

    Top Shelf work man.

    Glad to see other Pinoys posting their masterpieces here.

    Like I said in CybPH, great work on a very original combiner.

    Now get to work painting him! :)

    Very nicely done! Excellent job making the spare parts into a droid type bot. Lord knows the Protectobots need the extra firepower.

    Awesome job all around!

    I really can't add much to these quotes. I did remark in Stu's discussion thread how I like the different overall feel of these, that directly remind me more of really cool manga than anything. You've made some really nice choices with your artwork here. GREAT job, and I'm thrilled to welcome you to Radicons :thumb

    yeah, and for those who didn't know, Ryan's the same dude who did the TFTM version of Bruticus a few months ago. Thought I'd throw that out there...
