    made from a army of rotf scout class hubcaps.(there was actually a fifth hubcap mold,but he got kinda really messed up)
    a repainted rotf scout deadend was also used.
    the main combiner pieces can form a "bayverse" styled cannon turret when not forming nitrous.
    the main parts need to combine are salvaged from some kind of neo shifter thing that turned into a big ball.
    nitrous's head is a combination of the led light up head that came with the neoshifter and supreme class beastmachines jetstorm's head.the led light does still function and lights up his eyes.
    because of the articulation points in both the hubcap molds and the neo-shifter,his combined mode is extremely posable.
    the two shoulder cannons are taken from the same bm jetstorm.

    bio(non cannon character obviously)
    finally,roadhandler can rejoice. cybertron command has finally sent down to earth the promised upgrade,a bonus for him now having to deal with the hotrod patrol's issues.
    as with a few of the original combiners,nitrous's combined mode's minds do all meld together nicely...
    unfortunately it's all attitude and resentment that they agree on.
    constantly seen on the battle field as a raging colorful blurr.the main struggle in his mind is between bigdaddy and roadhandler.if those two ever work out their differences and leadership issues,the other members will follow in line to the victor.subject is also one of the fastest combiners in combined mode.

    wow that is some great work! The variety of colour really works in its favour, great work modding all those hubcap figures into limbs!

    And I love the name. congrats.

    thanks mang!!!

    i like that idea,almost like the idw gijoe vs tf's where they went back in time!!

    thanks!!!
    i know,the movie aesthetic is pretty alienish and less blocky than what we grew up with.still,i'm starting to like the bay/alien-ness to these new bots!

    thanks!!

    thanks quantum!!!

    Awesome combiner, and I love that the combined mode skeleton turn into a BFG. What did you use for connector ports?

    it started from me messing around with the rotf legends menasor i did a while back.then i started messing with the scout clases to see what would and wouldn't work.
    add in my love for micromasters,a wicked new mold courtesy of hubcap,and whammo!!!
    thanks mang!!:thumbs2: 

    thanks!
    thanks!!
    originally,it was between "nitrous" and "excellion",but i ended up choosing nitrous moreso because the name just screams more horsepower:D 

    noooooooooo!!not bett middler!!!!;p
    and yeah,thanks,but it works both ways!!
    you pump out some stuff that i just absolutely love too!!!:thumb 

    thanks,and yeah, i know.
    i have a issue keeping track of all the molds/repaints and reused names has/tak always recycles:eek: .

    thanks!!
    my own personal fav is hubs(green),mostly because of the amount of plastic that was removed and how much it changed his looks from the rest of them.

    puzzler you say huh....hmmmmm...
    thanks mang!!
    thanks!!

    on the hubcap bots themselves,i simply drilled a hole in certain spots to fit the stock connectors from the neo-shifter kit.
    on the two leg bots,they only had a hole drilled in their back ends in alt mode.
    the neoshifter feet attach with a funny looking flat peg that's connected to the neck joint on hubcap.(stock)
    for the two arm bots,they had two holes drilled in each of them.the rear end holes,drilled to fit the hands from the neo-shifter thing.
    the other two holes were carefully drilled(bot modes head is right under there) on top of their hoods,which when connected to the neoshifter parts ends up being a pretty decent shoulder/back shoulder blade joint.
    thanks again for the comments,
    hope that helps a bit if you wanted to try it too:thumb

    It certainly does, I've been looking at doing a scout sized combiner using the Energon connectors, but it would be a lot of work and be quite clunky, this looks like a much more streamlined alternative :D  Now to buy some Neo Shifters...
