    Sorry, but to do that G1 Devy would need knees or hips.

    Yeah, I know about CrazyDevy....

    That looks pretty badass. Almost as if they keep in chained up unless they REALLY need to free the beast.

    QUESTION.

    that control cap part that can plug into the underside of tfclub exgravenger's left or right fist in vehicle mode.

    would it be possible to plug it into one of the plug holes on the back of his left shoulder instead?

    with it set up like that in vehicle mode i am hoping it would give the shovel arm a wider range of semi circuler side to side movement at the rotating joint where the shovel arm plugs into place on scavengers back in vehicle mode

    actually i was thinking the individuals tearing him apart, to use it for "parts" like that unicron picture of the cons murdering unicron.

    :lol

    Those hangar display pieces are neat. If BBTS or a site more accessible had them still in stock I'd probably bite.

    Here's mine (and all props go to Skywarp181 for being the first to put one of these together and start the chain reaction of everybody wanting one, lol).

    Payton, I am soooooo close to being able to do that exact same set-up... I have the side panels being shipped to me and I have enough back walls and extra pieces to do almost the same thing. Are you cool with me ripping off your ideas? Of course you are.

    I was having issues with where to display Herc when he is done and debating whether to paint the bases or not, but when I showed your pic to my girlfriend she knew instantly where to put the display and that I should indeed paint it. Thanks for the help bro :)  My Herc display is going to be amazing.

    YAY!!...a Herc display thread :D ...hey Skywarp, you need to get some of those energon cubes and put 'em in that claw thing you have the red gun in...thats my plan :) 

    i'll go give it a try...hold please

    EDIT: yup, it fits in four other places in the back, none of which look as good as in the fist...it can fit in other places if you want to get crazy, but it'd look really silly

    Are you guys posting this in multiple areas to rub it in. LOL. I cannot find all of the pieces to make this or this would be so mine.

    Skywarp,

    Did you use 6 total sets to make yours? So did you use 2x 4, 2x 9 and 2x 10?

    Also, does anyone have a good description of what each set comes with?

    I like the catwalks and the part on the side. that the catwalk sticks out of. What set is that one?

    You know, all I really want for Hercules (other than six trumpets) is some tiny, tiny people fleeing in terror.

    Skywarp used 4 sets...don't remember which ones though...

    if you do an image search for them individually "mechanical chain base 001-010", you can see some clear pics of what each set somes with...the catwalk comes in a few different sets...i'm hoping i can find some good pieces at the hobby/train store...

    thats an awesome idea!...i'll look for tiny terrified people at the above mentioned train shop...

    Wow, absolutely amazing work there! Can't wait to see the finished display! Now I'm wanting some of those bases to make my own. XD

    Man, if you see any, let me know. I saw that spike and sparkplug, but they're really expensive for what they are. I mean, 0 scale people for train sets(about the size of Dr Archeville from MP Starscream, which I think is about perfect) are way cheaper than that. You can get like a whole bag of them on ebay for that price. But in my ebay searches, I've yet to see any that could pass for terrified.

    My diorama is a total of 24 chain bases and various girders, LEDs and other goodies. My diorama is not solely for Herc but also a full Decepticon HQ, Throne and all!! First things first though, I got my Ark diorama to finish along with a few customs including Classics Omega Supreme that I would like to have done before Herc finishes coming out mid next year!!
