    Hey everyone! When i saw MoeSizzlac's defensor, i got inspired. Seeing how i used energon sized combiner limbs and bodies for my WIP Computron and Abominus projects, i decided to make an energon combiner sized Defensor!

    I only have two figures at this moment.

    Hot Spot will be made from Energon Barricade with the gun and ladder of a knock-off Hot Spot. His ladder can detach and equip as a blade like ladder shield thing.

    First aid will be made from Cybertron Brushguard. I think that he looks closest enough to an emergency vehicle.

    Blades will be made from an energon helicopter.

    Groove will be made from either a modded RID Axer or an Energon Arcee.

    Streetwise will possibly be made from clocker.

    If anyone has any questions, ask away!

    Looks cool, but to be honest, A ladder would really suck as a shield...

    This is actually a really good idea. It is nice to see something done to this scale. Your choices for limbs are good, I might consider Lugnut instead of Arcee for the bike though. For the Helicopter I would continue with the Bruticus and use once of those for Blades, that mold would look interesting in red.

    RID Axer gets my vote for Groove. It's been done before, but it's a good match. Plus, I have to say, Brushguard makes a really cool arm! :) 

    Looking forward to this!

    Tried looking for Axer online. Couldn't Find one. Guess i'll have to take Kalron's suggestion, because i can Hightail/lugnut at my local kb

    I have to say that I do like your mods. I'm just hoping your painting technique has improved.

    p.s. My vote for Groove goes to Lugnutz.

    you can find KO axers at any bells outlet (already made a slick Barricade Out of him) but since you got a futureistic style defensor i would go with ransack just fold the back wheels up and defensors foot is ready

    another place to pick up a cheap knock off Axer is in a two pack you can find at Family Dollar for $3. Decent quality plastic for a knock off as well.

    True! And I would opt for the Lugnutz mold, as he is a Harley-type bike with saddle bags and all. Very CHiPs looking, plus it's a heckuva lot easier to find than Axer!:thumbs2: 

    Ah.. Forgot about those! They might be a better scale for a Superlink scale Defensor! Good lookin' out!:thumb
