    Well Radicons... the time has come. My Constructicons are complete. I will be uploading images for each of these Decepticons as the next few days pass us.

    To start the devastation, I bring you "Mixmaster"

    So as you can see, he's a parts-former. :( 
    I had a lot of trouble finding a flat nosed cab and implementing that into the bot mode as well. He's built from Energon Barricade, and 2 matchbox (die-cast) cement trucks, 1 for the barrel, 1 is the cab up front.
    The barrel clips onto his back using a Neo-Shifters socket joint, and the cab clips onto the front when in alt mode. I used water-slide decals for the con symbols on the front/doors and barrel (you'll see that one later)

    Where does the truck front and the mixer go in bot mode? Without them he looks far to generic. Colors are great and the paint looks nice and smooth, but with his kibble missing there is nothing to identify him in bot mode.

    Yeah, I agree. Wonderfully painted, and the truck mode looks GREAT... but where does it go? Is he a transformer, or is he a flatbed that needs to have a truck added to the top? :) 

    Got any pics that show how the kibble attaches in bot mode?

    I like it....has a nice "Classics" vibe to it....

    I'm willing to wager that the "other parts" that are being asked about some how help to form Devs....

    I'm really looking forward to seeing the rest of the guys, and of course, Devs :thumb 

    Nice work F_R.

    I think it looks great. Excellent use of Energon Onslaught.

    The paint job really looks flawless and I love the paint scheme!
    I expected a bit more of a G1 head sculpt and I agree as where does the barrel and truck cab go in bot mode. I can see part of the barrel in the first pic but it was removed in the others. Anyhoo, it still looks awesome and I sure want to see the other cons! :)

    I've edited the original post ;) 
    and yes PK, you're right, they were essential for stability of Devastator. Had this been Mixmaster by himself, I would have had a better solution than the cab coming off, but hey, this is my first real heavy-mod project!

    Blasphemy! LOL J/K

    Definitely cool looking. I do have to say though that it is certainly not your best, while everything looks cool I have to say that the green and purple have quite a bit of clumpy (unclean) areas. Still nice though and I can't wait to see him put all together.

    perhaps you can make the mixer transform into a turret or something?

    I realy like the look of him, he's painted realy well. I think that it looks better with the mixer left on in robot mode like in the first pic.

    also one of the things I was wondering about when I was lokking at the alt form is where do his legs go? do they come off? all I could see in alt mode was the torso and arms

    ...Wait, where do his legs go in truck mode? It looks like they just disappear (they run behind him trying to keep up, I guess?)

    In retrospect, would it have been possible to bash the cab assembly onto the legs and just set it up so the legs pop off at the waist and attach to the front of the truck as the cab? It wouldn't have ended up looking *exactly* like G1 Mixmaster (the front of the cab would be the sides of the legs, I think) but it's something to muse on.

    That's a good point, actually. Where are his legs - are they buried inside the mixer assembly (though I can't figure how)?

    It's certainly a pretty paintjob, and both the robot mode and truck mode look awesome individually, but the transition between the two is unfortunate.
