    hi guys,

    here's my first attempt at a TF custom. it has like 17 points of articulation and holds up quite well. i somewhat based it off the comic devastator that had the tread for arms and longhaul's bed for legs, etc.

    still need to do some touch-ups and clean up the chest, but for the most part it's done and i'm pretty happy with it.

    thanks! :)

    I have been thinking of such a project for the longest time and I just can't find a good solution. Yours is kick ass!

    I noticed parts of an extra long haul and hook on the thighs and arms. Do they parts form? Or is the Dev composed of eight constructicons? :eek: 

    Nevertheless parts former or not, I'd love it long time :) 
    Yes please, more pics especially of the individual bots!

    KO, awesome work man! I to like the comic version of using the bed and treads to connect th elimbs. When I first saw that pic I thought "why haven't I thought of that or seen this sooner?!?!?" It seems like such a no-brainer. I'm actually trying to do that in the classics treatment right now. it'll be a nice blend of kitbashing and scrathcbuilding.
    but back to YOUR work, i like how clean you got the bed/thighs and forearms. Looks "stock". i second the question from fakebuster, does the extra limb pieces add to something else, or do you just set them aside like G1 devie? Either way. very cool looking.

    Randy!

    Nicely done, and welcome to bashin part of the transformers world :D  I loved the idea that IDW used for the way the Devy combined, and I think you did an excellent job bringing that to reality, parts forming or not.

    Welcome aboard dude, nice job! I love the treads on the forearms. It brings something updated and new to it while seeming like they've always been part of it!

    I love how he has "it" thrust forward like he's posing for porn. He's a beautiful custom!
