    I took a Micromaster Devastator XD knock-off(for those who may be unfarmiliar it is a G1 Devastator in scale with Universe Micromasters.) and took the combiner pieces to the chop shop. I used epoxy plumbers puddy, and this awesome stuff called SureHold Plastic Surgery to create new combiner parts with pieces from a Fantastic 4 Reed Richards figure. He does still transform and all 6 do as well, I forgot to take alt mode pics. I'll snap couple today and post them. There is an old expression "measure twice, cut once" and there are a lot of unevens here. Consructive Critisim is encouraged.

    It looks pretty good, though, in my opinion, the legs are a little too long.

    I agree, and they look a bit too human. Shorten them up and square them off and you'll have a hit.

    not to mention the legs are backwards. Mixmaster is the LEFT leg, and Scrapper is the RIGHT leg. Otherwise, that is a totally awesome custom.

    Nice to see another kitbash Devastator!
    If you'd shorten the upper legs, would it loose posability?
    If you don't want to loose any articulation then may you
    add some bulkiness to his legs? That way he may look less skinny.
    Anyways, that was my 2 cents. You did a good job and I love his hands!
    Devastator was also my first kitbash... gotta love this big guy!

    It looks very nice, he is a little leggy, but it doesn't take much away from it. Good work.
