    Hey guys been wanting to do this for a very long time since last year.I reckon that alot of great customiser have been doing this Defensor which really amaze me on how this big guy stand .I did a size comparison between my scratch build devastator and it actually stands a few cm taller and more massive .Love doing this .After finish the prototype its time for me to combine all the 5 robots to complete in 1 piece .And of cos every single bot is transformable .Grove is scratch build which I took reference from F_R previous design which I think it best suits its build.Afterall the apperance is what I expect.Thanks for veiwing do give some comment about this design Cheers ;)

    Not a fan of the legs. Isn't there any way to make the vehicles in the legs the actual legs and not just have them strapped to legs that are already there?

    I hate to be a hater and I know it's not the done thing to poo-poo customs on here, but I have to agree with the above, thats just my personal preference. Other than that it looks great.

    he is so far the biggest combiner I have build
    Ya sure ,will do an update on groove tonite.
    Sure I will after the joints have settled.
    Well U have to make it strong ,so that it will firmly hold together in 1 piece.
    Not to worry its just a prototype,I haven't actually work on it ,but u will see the independent vehical leg holding on to its combine mode.
    same here lol ;)

    well it actually fits in just nice as the whole robot is massive so it needs a massive arm too ,I take reference from F_R 2008 defensor and studied the structure,it was a brilliant design and eveything he did was perfect except for the orientation of groove and first aid .I did a swap on that making it a more G1 accurate.I will be updating more on the indidvidual bot structure hope u guys can give more enlightenment on this project Cheers ;)

    Obviously the mototcycle leg needs a little help in the beef department, but I have to echo what others have said about the legs. If the kibble can stand up without any bots attached, there's a problem. Otherwise, I'm looking forward to seeing more.
