    Here is my knock off Devastator custom the arms are off a Energon Megatron. The legs are from a fast action battler brawl. I got the Constructions knock offs at Pamida a few years ago. I also have the yellow knock off variant minus Scavenger. The arms are from a broke Megatron and the legs are from a broken Brawl. Im not shore if im going to paint the arms and brawls legs yet. sorry about the picture quality. The one thing i need to redo is remake the legs sections for Mixmaster and Scrapper because there pegon toed. But ill half to find a another FAB figure to do that. Hope you like my variant of DEVASTATOR note this is my first combiner custom.

    Wow man, that was fast, nice first crack at a gestalt.
    The legs look nice.
    I dig Megs forearms, is there anyway to bring his shoulders in, as he seems very broad.
    I wish you could take better pictures, but I can make it mostly out.
    He looks good and big too.
    What are you using to make your connections? Is it some kind of clay?

    Great arms, gives him a big broad shouldered look. Very intimidating.

    I see you've already discussed the legs, best of luck on that! As for painting, if you paint it I'd maybe go with a black so that it blends in with his chest shield and looks like a proper accessory. His chest shield is black on your version, right? If not black is good anyways. Black goes with pretty much anything.

    Yeah, I know what you mean. I come across junker figures with some frequency at local thrift stores: Value village, Talize, goodwill, not sure if any of those exist near you. Those and garage sales are usually a pretty good source of cheap parts for kitbashing.

    It looks great. The only problem I see is the different lenght of the legs. Maybe you can add a piece under the truck of Mixmaster, like a "shoe".
