    Hey guys!

    I bought this KO Devastator at the local dollar store a year or two back and merged the "Constructicons" to form "Devastator" and there he stood on my shelf. A multi colored plastic brick. I had this idea and had been mulling it over for awhile and finally on my vacation I decided to try and give 'er a go. I've never attempted anything like this before. It will not break down into individual 'cons,but thats ok by me. My intention was to make a Devastator that was better than my original brick!:wink: 

    So let me know whatcha think so far, comments and crits welcomed!!:thumb

    hey there's no reason that it can't still separate into the individual cons. :)  look in the gallery, there's several of these and they all do! my only critique so far is the thighs seem like they're too long for the shins.

    In the "arm pic" you'll see some armor plates. I am going to attatch these to the upper leg and it will give em some bulk and help to make them look not so long.

    These guys were pretty loose KOs I had to glue em to hold their alt transformation, so that kills the individual cons :(  But like I said it was Devastator I was after. :)

    Thanks guys...Is it just me or is this thread "hijacking" others. When I posted it, it took over Corvus thread about Fort Max. My pic his title...grrrr

    Anyway, I'm blending the KO Constructicons with Sigma6 Snake eyes(limbs and main body) and another Sigma6 blue ninja(for the head, not sure of his name, but he had a bunch of flame weapons)and some KO Gundam armor I had laying around. After looking my pics I think his head looks kinda animated G1 style. ;)

    I have to say that out of all of the "Animated" style customs so far, this approach is the most interesting. I know that making an "Animated" custom was probably not your original intention (and still may not be), but I think it's got a nice vibe going on with it. I'm anxious to see what directions you go in with this piece! Keep us updated!

    still does, and to plowking. ptitvite was using IE instead of Firefox, and had to update his Java... don't know if that was the problem or not, but you could try it too, also clear your cookies, log out, and log back in after restarting the browser.

    Now that he's coming together, its starting to look pretty cool, once painted up, should be a fun piece!

    For the record, the thumbnail and the thread match, but it's listing as Don's scratchbuild thread for me.

    I'm viewing via the main site interface rather than the radicon interface, maybe that's part of the issue?

    Anyway, Devastator is looking very nice. Are you gonna go with realistic colors or G1 colors?

    I'd like to thank all those who help me to acheive this honour!!! :banghead:  I guess I have unknowingly created a real "transforming thread":lol 

    Well I've tested it and it seems to even stand on its own!! I was kinda worried it might be top heavy. I have moved to the priming satges and still kinda debating on what paints to use...go classic colors or more G2. Honestly I have never seen any real life construction vehicles green, but I do like the original. :) 

    Thanks for the comments guys!!
