So I need some painting practice, so I want to start on the small transformers for practice. For some fun I want to plan a gestalt with them too. I'm basing this on what I can pick up in the shops right now without bankrupting myself. Longview has a nice shape and I imagine it may make a nice torso piece. LOC Onslaught strikes me as a fine set of lower legs considering the canon articulation. A piece of plasticard across the gap that has the face showing up would do the trick. I'm interested in hearing feedback on a couple of things. 1. Any thoughts on which LOC to use for the arms? Should I just use Onslaught? 2. To make Onslaught workable on both sides, the shoulder cannon needs to be swapped for the sake of symettry. Does anyone have any suggestions for doing this? I'm considering just trying to trim it out and swap it around if its doeable. 3. Connection pieces? 4. Anything that pops into your head. Bio you ask? Of freaking course! This is an in scale BW era cybertronian gestalt. My hope is it will match up nicely to the Classics deluxes size wise, maybe even be a bit bulkier. The role he'll play is as a Guardian type robot. During the Great Downgrade not all Decepticon war criminals were caught or downgraded. In response to this the Maximal ruling council comissioned the Predacon Bulk Division. Now the Predacons, descendants of the Decepticons, must hunt down their brethern to ensure peace so that they might work towards a position of strength again. They are a crack urban response squad, trained to combat superior forces in tight situations. When their co-ordinated efforts are no longer enough they combine to become the planet's Guardian against the threats of the past. I love the BW story and I'm loathe to accept that the distinction between good guy and bad guy as black and white. I'll try to have a horrible looking sketch of what it may look like combined this evening.
