    Final update. All done!

    Each limb bot has a battle station that all of their weapons mount on. The battle stations are the extra parts for combining.

    Destroyer has an Optimus, Ultra Magnus, Spider-man, Superman, Captain America overly heroic color scheme because of the characters he is made up of. Personally I'd rather him be dark and weathered, but what can ya do.

    He is 18 inches tall and really sturdy and poseable! Hopefully a big improvement on my first Wreckers combiner, Wrecktifier, though Destroyer is about 7 inches shorter.
    Sorry about the tacky borders of my photo area showing in the pics. He's big.

    Excellent stability and articulation was the main goal on this one, although serious firepower was still up there too. :)

    i kinda wish the upper arm bots were somewhat more incorporated into being his arms,but the proportions excelled in the trade off:thumbs2:

    How much of it actually combines? It looks impressive, but it looks like cars attached over just another, albeit cool, robot. The legs look more integrated, but only about 40% of the legs seems to be that of the combiners.

    I'll get that shot too once guzzle is done. :) 

    Thanks! Yeah random as hell, lol. It wasn't easy.

    I agree. With the limited molds to make a passable (even cybertronian) triple changer and Guzzle, I just did the best I could. I learned from Wrecktifier that joints attached to shoulder bots just aren't strong enough to hold up big guns well too, so this was how he came out with much more sturdy arms in mind.

    Of course the arms are pre-built arms that the shoulder bots just snap on to and the head assembly comes off, but only the feet and back of his calves are extra parts on the legs. Broadside and Whirl make up the entire torso down to the knees.
    So no. More like around 10-15% of his legs is the 2 extra parts that make the feet and calves. The rest is the 2 leg bots and broadside.
    This isn't just another full robot build with 6 bots that attach to it. Not by a long shot.
    I disliked having to make the arms with robots that just attach to the shoulders, but it was the best option for the overall look and functionality of the combiner and he still has less extra parts than most G1 combiners.

    Also, again, the few extra parts have a purpose when not combined too.

    So this is what would happen if every G1 combiner had a baby?

    I'm seeing a lot of borrowed design cues that work really well together.

    looks like 100% to me.. it's the central bot (broadside)'s legs, you can see where his feet flip up and the other ones attach onto the soles of his feet to become the lower legs
