    EDIT (29/8/10): Build is 100% complete! Unfortunately, I still can't take a decent shot of this guy, so i'll settle for some close ups this time around. Minicon Makeshift used for size comparison. If your blue car is missing in the morning, it wasn't me. ;)  On to the painting stage! Also, if you look carefully, you can see Covington in the torso. I'll get pics of him and his little 'cockpit' area once it's painted.

    EDIT: Building stage is complete, bar the head. Pics as soon as camera allows.

    EDIT 2 (23/8/10): Now with new pics! I'll be surprised if you guys can make out anything, though, for some reason my computer decided it would be funny to delete Photoshop. :( 
    Last Pic is for size comparison, with Figma Sygnum.


    *Because anyone who's seen my WIP Menasor and Devs knows that only Wildrider (and an SE Dragstrip) and Scrapper were ever made, respectively, and there's no gestalt. :D 


    This time, things are different. I've finally built up enough skills (like panel lining well, which i learnt from a Gunpla comp.), and enough time (guys at S70, i know i said i was busy with school work for not entering the contest, well this was also kinda part of it. :p ) to actually BUILD a combiner! My own fan-made combiner to be exact: Fallen's Force!

    Pretty much this is just an excuse to create many figures who are all black with orange panel lining. I think i like that colour scheme a little too much. I even have a 'Fallen' Aile Strike staring at me. lol. Anyways.

    Fallen's Force should comprise of 7 members or so, but with only six making up the Gestalt. The other one is just the little humanoid guy that sorta just tags along. Their names are all "Fallen's ______", except for Covington, that little unimportant guy who looks a lot like a Spartan:

    Fallen's Peacekeeper (from Rotf Knock Out)
    Fallen's Commander: Justice" (from Rotf Sonar)
    Fallen's Defender (from Deluxe Brawl)
    Fallen's Sniper (???)
    Fallen's Soldier (???)
    Fallen's Gearframe (from Minicon Safeguard)
    Covington

    On to what i have so far: Currently I have 2 out of the 7 members acquired, 1 of them finished, and have both legs and waist built. Justice is pictured, painted and ready to go, while Peacekeeper is still awaiting it's new paintjob. I've only gotten around to painting one of the legs yet, and from the unpainted one you can clearly see it's just a lot of Bionicle parts, Asoblock joints, meccano, and some styrene. The unpainted leg also has an additional Bionicle joint over the painted one, simoply because the location of the joint on Peacekeeper ended being much lower than on justice in leg mode. The waist is from X-Overs Hulk.

    Since it's my first true combiner, could you guys tell me if the proportions are okay? I'm not sure if it looks too thin or not. Also, which weapon whould i use? The axe or the fire sword? Or just go overkill and load him with everything i got?

    Oh, and quiz question: Anyone who can tell me where i stole the names from for the 7 members, and Force himself, gets a virtual prize. Same goes if you can tell where the yellow thruster things on the painted leg are from.

    That's enough from me, on to the (horribly crap) pics! I'll get Justice and Peacekeeper their pics later.

    Cool! I got my own group of Fallen's helpers in progress, but I haven't tried to make mine combine! Great idea!

    ---Also, aren't those names also from the Machina monsters from Yu-Gi-Oh?

    Thanks for the responses everyone!

    We have a winner! Yes, i did steal the names from the Machina series in Yugioh. Btw, there was no virtual prize. I did mention in the title that it was a lie... ;) 

    I await to see your Fallen's helpers. Too bad they have no chance against a gestalt... :ev:

    Okay, as you can see, i've made some changes. Defender is no longer deluxe Brawl, but rather a Magna Guard Starfighter, which i've modded with Guntank gatling gun hands, and his altmode has been reworked (no mods needed bar the gun hands), to resemble Machiner's Defender as much as possible. I'll try to get WIP pics of him up tomorrow, to show the new alt mode. I think it resembles Machiner's defender pretty well.

    Fallen's Soldier i've decided to make from an old Lockdown i have, which i bought to replace my first Lockdown after i broke his hand, not knowing about that gimpy hand thing. I'm hoping to acquire a chainsaw for him (don't wanna shell out for a whole BL), to imitate the knife blade right arm of the original Machina Soldier. Anyone who can help, shoot me a PM. By now i'm sure you'd have guessed, but the Machina monsters were always soe of my favorites, so i'm trying to each of them justice (no pun intended), except with a fallen theme.

    Also, finally, i can integrate Fallen's Fortress into my custom! W00t! I always regretted not having him, and now i do! He'll be taking the original deluxe brawl that was for Defender.

    Current plans are that Fortress will form the torso, Defender the right arm, Gearframe the head, and Soldier and Sniper will form either the other arm, or some sort of backpack. Oh, and i've painted the second leg.

    WIP pics of Fallen's Defender

    Modded from a Magna Guard Starfighter. All i did was drill out a set of holes inside a pair of 1/144 Guntank hands, so that they slip right over the original hands. A drop of glue later, it's done.

    BTW, the cannons can still rotate in both modes, due to the original ball joint. For those who don't know the original, here's Machina Defender.

    Progress! But no pics...

    ...since my school doesn't have SD card slots on their computers.

    Good news is that the Gestalt is nearly done. Only Gearframe is yet to be attached, as the head.

    Currently i have Soldier as the right arm, Sniper as the left, Defender as a sort of backpack and hopefully twin over shjoulder gatling guns. Fortress is still the torso.

    And he has a fire staff!

    Bumpity Bump Bump...

    Oh my god, this is one old thread. Ah well, least this time i actually have finished.

    Yes, i did say FINISHED!!!

    The building part, that is. Paint work is at about 20%. Anyways, the gestalt's done bar the head, which should be drying. The only issue is that i've had to take Soldier and Sniper off the gestalt, the weight was just too much and to rework the connection points would have been hell. So now they just guard Covington, i guess.

    Speaking of Covington, i'm planning to get a Halo Mega Bloks Drop Pod tomorrow for him. Anyways, pics once my camera's charged. I just couldn't wait to post! :) 

    EDIT: PICS! Yes, PICS! You may now drool over the awesome, and watch in horror as your Alternity is smashed to bits...

    Thanks man.

    Anyways, i finally secured the Halo Drop Pod for Covington, chose the Heavy Weapons Specialist set because it fits with the Black/Orange colour scheme.

    Also, you guys think i should bash my PCC Combaticons? I think the limbs work great as little drone vehicles.

    Le sigh...

    I gotta say, big thanks to Bruticus82 for keeping me going on this thing. Thanks a lot, man, i'd have given up without you.

    Anyways, onto the actual point: BUILD WORK IS DONE, 100%!

    Yes, unlike the other 100 times i said it's done, this time it's actually done. I made a lot of changes to the last pics, though, when i realized that, without the tail, it couldn't hold it's own weight. So, now i've completely removed the original Hulk waist and Asoblocks, and replaced them with the waist of a Primus figure. The major sacrifice for the new, better gestalt, was that now Fallen's Fortress (the tank that makes the torso)l, now has no robot mode. Oh well. It was worth it. It now doesn't need the tail anymore, it stands on it's own two legs! W00t!

    Also, remember Covington? The little human(ish) guy? Well, now there's an added bonus: He actually rides in the combiner! Yes, he's got his own personal area, in the *stomach*, kitted out with the main hardware and a really bad imitation of a GN Drive, all in true Gundam fashion!

    Pics coming, gimme 5 or so to get them done.
