    If i have any left over money im going to attempt some minions. At the moment i have rumble and frenzzy mock ups.

    At a later date im ight use styrene (Can't find anywhere selling them) to make piledrives.


    c and c welcome

    I just need to shave his head spikes abit to help with transformation, but i took my personal ratchet and soundwave (looking for another 2 to use in the custom) and it works fine: [​IMG]

    Good idea for soundwave, but you might look into motorcycles for the minions, to me the lesser size vehicle emphasizes soundwaves larger size, and implies his superiority. That and scout ransack(I think that's his name) would look good in frenzy and rumble colors.

    I think 2 Brimstones would make a superior set of minions.

    I don't want to shoot down your idea, but I had the same idea with Soundwave using Ratchet's body.

    Soundwave's head doesn't fit very well on that ball joint--it DOES however fit very nicely on the Brawn mold, which is also based on a Hummer (albeit the ones NEST used). The gaps in Brawn's chest also kind of resemble the circular orbs Soundwave's deluxe toys have.

    Oh on mine it didn't seem to fit all that well when I tried, but it looks like you had better luck. My bad then, good luck with the custom!

    Do the best you can to make sure it's even. So a couple more coats are likely (though be careful about making too thick, of course). I'm thinking breaking up the parts with some silver or steel here and there. Though I'm figuring this to be just the start, and you're likely planning something along those lines.

    I like the idea so far. Especially with the tires being used as sonic weapons.

    this looks awesome, but i also think 2 brimstones would look far more badass as frenzy and rumble. then skystalker could be laserbeak, and you could modify brakedown to walk on four legs so he could be ravage.
