    Hi everyone! I'm proud to show you my first kitbash. Being a loyal fan of The Transformers, I received during Christmas of 1985, a Devastator gift set. Having a big collection of TFs at the time, it was my favorite one and played with it and never broke it! I'm now 32 and still miss all those weekday afternoons and Saturday mornings of watching my favorite TV show

    This custom Devastator can be liked by people any ages, but from my eyes, and those born around 76, it kinda brings back that magic that no other cartoon ever brought back...Devastator had to be your favorite character. Member The Devastator made one custom Devastator that inspired me.
    ( I also took one of his ideas: Aerialbot head and fixation....Thanks Dev!!) I saw his work the first time I found TFmaster.com...that was in 04 or 05. I then found myself a new hobby.
    Thanks guys!! (TFmaster, The Devastator and Pepie and everybody!)
    My g1 constructicon set is still intact as I took KO's to do this.

    Duh, I'm not that stupid!

    Gotcha. Thank you. Looks awesome. Loving that Blaster (though, wish he could transform)!

    You should check out MacrossFA19's Soundblaster KB. It's in scale with the Classics, and transforms! Maybe you can do another Blaster... :sly:

    The Blaster I have is quite in scale with my other classics. He does not transform
    'cause I lack talent! I can live with it! Thanks for your kind words!

    Nice work on all of them!

    In regards to blaster; With the joints that he has you could make him transformable with a just bit more work. Perhaps you should pick up another kit for experimentation?

    Again, great job.

    Thanks! As for Blaster, if I replace his knee joints by ball joints, maybe I could make if transform. Those Kabaya kits are not expensive and would gladly make another try.

    good stuff all around. You've been asked about most of the figures so far, but what about Kickback? what's he made from?

    theres a very simple reason for the yellow looking like crap... its painted over grey. you should have given it a white undercoat before applying the yellow.

    Your Long Haul is REALLY impressive. That idea about pairing E. Strongarm and RID Heavy Load is surprisingly clever. Great work!

    Kickback...Took G1 Kickback added Gundam arms and joints to articulate legs.


    Thanks for the info. Maybe it would look better if I applied another coat, but
    anyways, thanks! I'll use white primer in the future

    Thanks! I do plan on mod his booster pack and jet wings and go for the toon version. Whats the what in my what?


    Thanks!!:rock 



    Thanks but the idea was not mine. I had seen this on livedoor some time ago.
    I decided to make my own. I did try to improve however!

    LOL. I don't have Hybrid G-1 Prime yet, but could you use that base on that Classics Deluxe Prime? That you make for some nice poses.

    I'd do a Bat-Man grappling pose personally, but you know....
