    Parts I used -
    Mainly enamel paints, some acrylic too.
    Neodymium magnets.
    Optimus Prime's feet and hands.
    Large gun and long sword (maybe shouldn't have the sword, it was a spare from a Menasor combiner I'm working on)
    Various connectors, mainly plastic.
    A long extendible ladder.

    Universe/Classics Inferno
    Universe/Classics Prowl
    Cybertron Ransack
    Animated Ratchet
    Universe Blades
    G1 Defensor parts
    Roadbots x2

    Defensor stands around 13 inches/35 cm's tall. I think the original G1 Defensor is 8 inches. I should have taken pictures of my Defensor standing next to G1 Defensor! Sorry! All five Protectobots are fully Transformable, and have custom heads, on ball joints etc. I haven't got around to taking photos yet of the figures individually. I will try to soon. Defensor is very sturdy, but comes apart quite easilly (if that's not a total contradiction?!)

    This combiner took ages to make!!! I did find it frustrating at times, a few head in hands and swearing moments took place! I'm currently working on a new Defensor, and a Menasor combiner. Lastly, again sorry for not being organized, but the pictures show a red helicopter instead of Blades. Blades does attach fine, I just find the figure a touch big and heavy.

    Excellent version of Defensor! I really like it.

    I have only one thing to nitpick about and it is that Blades and Streetwise are only hanging on the arms instead of actually being a part of them. It doesn't detract from the coolness though :) 

    Speaking of Blades, you say you used Universe Blades, but I can't see it. To me, it almost looks like that helicopter you used cannot transform. Would you mind telling us more about it?

    Other than that, keep up the good work!

    Hi! Universe Blades can attach the same way the helicopter is sitting. The helicopter I used in the photo I painted red/white, it's nice and light. I will use the proper Blades, stand it next to a G1 Defensor and get a few new photos uploaded. Oh, and thanks for the comment.

    Right, I hope I've done this correctly! Sorry for the poor quality photos, the light is awful here! Blades is now attached, and the custom is standing next to the original G1 Defensor.

    Defensor is one of my favourite G1 Combiners and you did a perfect representation. Love the blue on Inferno.
    Awesome job.
