    So have you ever heard the phrase third time's the charm? Well it really is, my third attempt and I finally got it. I put some pictures at the bottom of the failed second attempt which just kept getting worse :( 

    But this one is fairly simple and what I should have started with. It is the stakeout mold with an energon port glued solidly into his chest. I have also added an articulated waste , new head, I have removed the Powercore combine ports and have adapted the feet to have the combiner hand plug into them.

    If you've been following along you know I was trying to make him a leg. That's where I had most of my problems, and for no good reason because he should be an arm. Once I stopped trying to match groove this was very easy.

    so here it is in combine mode and a sneak peek at my Hotspot. as you can see I'm using the energon mudflap toy to add articulated shoulders similar to the fan projects colossus.

    although the failed robot has a passable vehicle mode and robot mode mile last reiteration has a far superior combine mode. Which is why went with the third design :D

    Next up is Hotspot, I'm really excited for this one :D

    The "good" first aid looks very nice, I've always thought the Smolder mold would work well for the character's job as a Defensor limb.

    But the "failed" First Aid honestly isn't that bad. It may not work for First Aid, but it's still cool how you redid half the transformation to get largely the same alt. mode. I'm sure you could come up with something to cover those arms and how to repaint it into a different character who isn't a combiner limb (Like maybe some kind of AAA super tuck that gets dispatched out to people who are having car trouble). You'll need to fill in that gap between the door and rear panel parts to make it look like a solid vehicle from that angle (the fact the rear wheels do not line up with the front is okay, you can say the alt. mode base was one of those large-bed trucks).

    if I collected semi-small combiners this would be a must have prolly the best in that scale i've seen so far :D 
    can't wait to see the rest, hope the rest will have that clean look when in combined mode, since just like any combiner I think is it's main purpose :p

    I think you're onto something huge, man. I see this inspiring others to do the same. Great job so far and it looks great next to Bruticus there.

    This Defensor project is already looking incredible, and like he'll be a really good match for the FP Bruticus. I can't wait to see more!!!

    Wow, very nice! I can't wait to see this when it's all finished. Who's head did you use for First Aid?
