    i wanted to do this a while ago. then TFC came out with their Iron Army sets.
    i did really like they way they looked in combined mode. but didn't care for their robot modes so it would be too expensive for me.

    so i decided to make my own arms and legs. but i want them to combine together to make some sort of separate vehicle as well

    i had to remake the feet. the old ones were too big and would not work for a decent looking vehicle mode formed from the limbs. i used the regular cybertron mudflap feet but added some better articulation.

    and i made some shotguns out of zoid weapons. i will be adding some styrene soon for added detail.

    Next I just need to use styrene to fill in gaps and add detail. Also I'm gonna try to find a way to combine the limbs for a vehicle mode
    heavytread already sort of resembled brawl, so this is gonna take the place of Brawl for my Classics line. he's just a little bit of an upgraded more brutish version of Brawl

    Looks awesome this is similar to what I have in store for my PCC G2 Megatron. I'm definitely going to keep an eye on this. And it's great to see this mold and power core in general still seeing love.

    Sweet. Nice proportions with the arms/legs.

    Ya know, if Heavy Treads were more readily available... we'd see a lot more interesting projects using him.

    I need help now. I have an idea on how to put the legs together to make a
    Vehicle but the arms and feet are no fun. I may need to make
    Smaller feet? Not sure yet.

    Also! If anyone wants to help, I need hands. Bigger and semi articulated. Honestly I'd love a pair of MP starscream hands but anything would do
