    I need people's opinion on what color to give my current wip, Devastator.
    The physics are aimed more or less at G1 but I'm not too certain about color scheme.
    Should I choose:
    G1 bright green (aka testors sublime green)
    or
    G1 light bright green (lime green)
    or
    realistic colors...

    Sorry no pics, as I would've liked to have the poll feature on this board..or maybe I did'nt find it. Thanks for the help.

    G1 green is realistic.

    Terex Corporation used a green paint very similar to the G1 Constructicons as the color of their vehicles. Check it out:

    G1 Green, but a tad darker.

    IIRC Its a movie based diorama/statue correct?

    The original movie was much darker colour wise during the battle, so the Constructicons werent as 'neon'

    Ok so the Terex Green is somewhere near lime green?
    I'm asking 'cause I still have some (12 cans) of sublime green but I'd like to make things different this time. I tested some lime green but it is very light compared to the sublime green. Anyways, I appreciate your comments, keep em coming!
    I'll edit the first page for a added choice of color

    I like the standard yellow (I would rather say that instead of realistic) because its something different.

    I really liked the G2 Devastator, at least for the colors, as a toy he is still one of the worst transformers every made.

    I would say some realistic colors.The yellow thing has been done,the orange thing has been done,the green thing has been done,and the candy colored one,and the diaclone colored one.You could scope out tons of cunstruction stuff and see all the colores and pick the ones that would make the best combo.Be totally original!!!! I've seen some of your work so I'm sure you won't have a problem.

    Another? YES!!!!

    Go Sublime!! Devastator is green period. Sure it's been done, but that's the way he's supposed to be. But damn..it's gonna be hard to top your kick ass Devastator. It's seriously one of my favorite customs ever. I wanna see a new pic your Devastator :)

    Without a doubt, Devastator should be the biggest and strongest combiner!
