    Hey guys,

    Finished Devastator finally. He should have a gallery up soon at Transtopia. I worked so hard on this guy and I'm stoked he turned out the way he did because this is my first kitbash. Here's a few pics for ya. Hope ya like him!

    That looks really cool. The molded head fits Devastator, and the hands look amazing.

    I bet getting the arms connected was a pain, but you made it look easy.

    The only real nitpick I have would be the "thighs" they just look a little thick for the frame...but they are still a great idea in giving the character some much-needed articulation!!

    Dude! That's like... dude!

    I'm VERY impressed by your work, particularly by the nice clean paint aps. That's the one thing that kinda drags other customs down, but you pulled it off perfectly. I dig man, I dig.

    I'm very impressed! :thumb s



    But I gotta' say... I know you were trying to re-create the scene from the movie, but the pic of Slag acting like the family dog sniffing the crotch of the annoyed house guest is just too funny. ;)

    That is the first thing I noticed too. How did you get such a nice finish on the paint? The head in particular.

    Hey thanks everyone!

    I agree that the thighs are a bit thicker than usual, but I don't think they make him look awkward. I love the way they turned out...makes him look buffer.

    The arms were actually the easiet part. I found a nice pair from my gundam model and used sculptey to fill in some big gaps, sanded it, used masking tape for the two upper ribbed layers, and painted it black and walla! I appreciate your feedback!

    LOL

    Yeah, guess I didn't think about that. Well at least he's not really close to his crocth. HAHA.

    Once the head was finished I primed the whole thing, sanded it, primed once more, and painted the whole thing black. I painted over the black with a brush for the details.

    Hey Thanks,

    I'd say about a little over 3 months. I work 9-5 and have a girlfriend, so I would spend a few hours on him every other day.

    Awesome work! Love the arms, and the fact that you can still transform him into the individual 6 robots.

    Did you keep the original docking ports for the arms? Because I distinctly remember that the tiny rod that connects to Bonecrusher has a tendency to go SNAP, and figured that if you were going to the trouble to rework Devastator that you might beef that piece up.
