    So, if you know anything about me, I do not always care if my customs transform...sometimes I just want a big huge bot:)  So don't ask...he does not transform.

    I guess this is the point where I have to kiss all the butts of anyone who had anything to do with a devastator...haha...but for real...thanks Ptitvite and everyone else.

    This was originally for me, but I was swamped with e-mails about selling him....so, I will let him go to another good home:( 


    New "shoulders"
    new hands
    aluminum rod in the crane
    Chest articulation: 360 degrees, up and down
    chest shield is on a tilt joint to compensate for the posing
    Light up decepticon symbol in custom built chest shield
    Head lights in Long Haul

    Head cast from Ptitvite(my Favorite sculpt)

    ptitvite's already has chest articulation but not 360 degrees. the leg thing does bug me... i think the china dev used unicron's. that's as big as i saw it and the leg does not stand out since he didn't use barricade...

    bigger hands would be really nice... good luck. yes, bashing dinobots with this baby would rock.

    I'd like to see different hands on him. And great that you diverted from the original by using Mudflap for Hook instead. I don't understand why, since you're planning on another, this one won't transform. I guess it has to do with you seeing an Action Figure and not necessarily a Transformer.

    Thanks, it will take a lot of work to make him "fit" when I have them transform.

    Yes yes....Ole mudflap:) 

    I hope so....I still love this custom..I am just glad I will have one that I will be proud of...my first one SUCKED!!! haha..

    So yes...there shall be some dinobots in the works:) 

    As for the legs, I am still using barry for the mixer, the problem I found was that the tires on Scrapper on the inside really push them apart...so they can transform to the back.


    Oh yeah, the new hands will be good.....

    Well, I am building this one to "test" out certain connections, week points, and how to improve it when I build the one that will transform. So yeah, this one is just a big ole action'con for now:)

    Even though this is a test-run, will he still get the premium paint treatment?

    haha...

    As for paint...Just think of what I did to voltron and movie devs, but applying what lessons I have learned.....I am keeping it G1 colors though...I thought about making them all different, like that one concept art, but I just love me some bright green and purple devastators!!!! OOHH YEAH!!!

    I plan on going the extra mile with details....what till you see what I have in store for the cab of mixmaster:)

    Right on, I'd hate to see this guy be just a prototype.

    And of course! Can't have Mixmaster be a firetruck!!

    LOL Being a "test-run" of sorts, it'd be cool to see this in Diaclone colors. But I guess the painting could always use a test-run as well.

    I actually noticed this in the back of your latest video (I think it's your latest, the "what do you collect?" one that I have yet to respond to). I was wondering how you got Mudflap down in size.

    Anyway, good stuff as always. You think your final Devs is going to be done by Cybcon? Haha

    Got myself a Mudlfap for my Devestator; great minds think alike, no? :) 

    Great proportions right there, David. Curious to see the hands you've got planned. I'd like to see you get Long Haul's legs in the back flush, instead of hanging out at angles back there... :)

    hmmm. kinda like the tires sticking out. i would have moded barry instead since he is a parts-former. the way i saw it was that barry's feet get in the way. either way. can't wait for the new hands. yeah china dev also used unicron hands which is bigger and another, i think G2 dev which used the entire arms and of course hands. i'm really curious to which hands you'll use.

    I'd like to see these hands too, was gonna cut the Primus ones off for mine but I want some with the thumbs on a ball joint. I thought about Mudflap too while I was lookin around for alternate ideas, but I figured he might be too big. I found a way to solve all the leg issues on mine, sounds like you have the same gripes I do. Looks good, rock on man!
