    this was a fun one to mess with!!
    as much as i like the uniform blue color on onslaughts body,i wanted to go a different route and try to make him like a remake of the old school version.if i find another stronghold for cheap,i'll be grafting the k/o mini max's face to it.
    besides the paint,a few bits and pieces were added to him to make him look a bit more different than onslaught.
    he now sports a spiffy upgraded arsenal along with the weaponry that comes with stronghold.
    rib mounted cannons x2
    4 barreled chain gun x2(1 per leg)
    removable twin cannons x2(1 per leg)
    twin drum fed gattling gun
    ginormous blue rifle
    main turret mounted twin machine guns x2
    stronghold rifles x2
    stronghold shoulder cannon
    the story for him could take place just after the end of the tfcon comic.......
    after growing more and more bored during the long space trip searching for the escaped zarak and his hench men,stronghold started to turn his attention back to his discarded transtector.
    not only did he modify the structure of it and gave it new life with paint,but he also went and emptied out the armory on board the ship.
    sometimes a battle will require a more managable sized transtector,and this is strongholds answer before he brings out the "big" one.

    pieces he now has

    That's pretty fantastic. I want to see what it looks like with that KO Fort Max head painted black.

    I'm really impressed with how this worked! I wouldn't have thought to use Onslaught to make Fort Max but you pulled it off beautifully!

    Genius in a way, he still transforms into a type of fortress and is just plain out appealing

    Reminds me of the IDW version. Then again, that was probably the point, so awesome job! I've actually been wanting to do this for a while, but I was too slow. Once again, great job on the figure!

    I love it. I am working on a team for Prowl and one of the molds I am going to use is Onslaught. I had a rough design for him but this would be awesome. I forgot the IDW version of him. I am going to have to do this now! Thanks for the idea!

    Awesome stuff and reminds me of IDW, which is always a good thing. Don't be afraid to go all the way with it - a well-cusomised convention exclusive is worth more than a regular one ;)
