    Here's Defensor. First off, I'm tasting enamel and second, these pictures were a pain in the a$$ to take. So please excuse the glares, he looks much better in person.

    Inspired by MoeSizzlac and Frenzy Rumble, Defensor is pretty huge. He stands 20 inches tall, and is a monster.

    He also comes with his BFG which includes 8 different firing sounds.

    Hope you guys like him.

    I like it. Just one question where do you store the limbs when they split?

    You must have a lot of free time to whip these up so quick! I think this is your best combiner up to date, nice clean paint app. Any back shots?
    Also I noticed you built a new Dev too, can’t seem to remember that being posted on the boards! Mind posting it?

    I always thought defensor had groove as his right leg, why have you and FR incorporated him into an arm?

    Do the limbs seperate to become the individual robots? If so, I wanna see how Red Alert looks. I love how you were able to introduce an Animated figure into the mix!

    Looks awesome, nice work. Like the chest plate as well, and how you utilize all your Unicron parts (I should send you the parts I toss out hehe)

    Is it just the pictures, or am I thinking his arms don't move, or the shoulders unable to support the weight of the arms being outwards?

    What's the gun from? I want one!

    suh wheet!!!! that thing looks like he would end up being 40 feet tall in real life!!!what did you do for his big head?where does it go when not in combined mode?i find it neat how you have unicron parts interspersed here and there.i cant imagine what it was like cutting him up into so many pieces.my only critique would be to maybe add a bit of panel lining or give it a dirty wash just to make more details pop out,other than that,this custom rocks!!!

    This is very nice. But it's kind of weird seeing him tower over Devastator like that while being almost as tall as Predaking.

    I must say I love what you did for his chest piece, it gives him a great presence.

    Nice. This is your best work to date. I really like the chest-plate and the Unicron parts for abs. Looks really cool.

    What are you using behind the legs? Looks like leg parts from Cybertron Starscream.

    thanks guys

    thanks man, i'll try to improve on that

    lol, thanks! the cool thing is that the buyer who bought my Superion and Menasor, is also buying my Predaking and Defensor, and soon, Computron. So I;ll eventually get to see a big group shot of them together, which I'm super excited about

    hmmmm :) 

    not why FR did so, but the reason I didn't was because I thought he would look better, with the prowl mold as a leg. I had a nifty transformation for groove as a leg, which I'm going to try and use on my new Defensor.

    yes, they seperate. i have some robot pictures in the radicon customs section as well. although, he does have "extra" combiner pieces.

    lol, i only have 3 more right now, got one for sale? :) 

    thanks man

    thanks :) 

    thanks a lot mike. and yes, you should send me the parts you toss out :)  his arms have limited articulation. his arms move forward and backwards at the shoulder, and 360 degrees at the elbow.

    his gun came from a cheap big robot i found here in town, at a store called 'family dollar". $6.00 on clearance. I'm going to see if they have anymore, and if so, i'll pick up 3 or 4.

    thanks man. the "combiner" parts are just stored away when not used. cutting unicrons up suck, you get plastic dust everywhere :) 

    i agree, i wasn't planning on him being as tall, but with those big gorilla arms, i had to make him tall as possible, so his fists weren't dragging the ground, lol

    sure is, good eye, and they're some nifty pieces

    thanks a lot man, i'm glad you like him
