    Looks promising so far, just need to see more, but It looks like you are off to a good start on minimizing kibble based on the drag strip arm. Looking forward to more pics!

    This is looking great, although I would suggest updating the formula a bit, like using another mold instead of cybertron optimus and a different one for wildrider just to variate a bit from breakdown, but that's just me. good job so far. :)

    I used a random parts here and there but the most suitable will be of cos the unicron crotch for combiners but in future I will start to use different material on that .

    i'm no pro when it comes to scratch building a combiner...but somethings i've noticed with others that you might want to, or already have, taken into consideration...

    the first thing that you seem to be doing that i love, is making the whole vehicle become the whole limb as opposed to just tacking a complete untransformed vehicle onto kibble..AWESOME!

    another thing that drives me crazy personally, that i can't tell from your pics, is when these custom combiners get too lanky...

    I think it looks good so far. Will this transform or be an actionmaster?

    I agree with you on dragstrip .Was thinking of adding some kibbles to bulk up the wraist portion as it looks kinda empty but not too much add on as my intention is to reduce as much kibble as possible

    thanks I try my best to reduce to the minimum kibble as much as possible to my other combiner project
