5/5/09 I know there are a lot of these in progress right now, but in my defense...I started on this guy just shortly after Ptitvite's masterpiece came to fruition. IIRC, it was way back in April of 2008. My first Devs thread will show that early progress: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/211140-my-custom-devas-head-wip.html Expect a large update in the coming days. The "building blocks" are finished, no really; they're painted Hook is nearly completely in paint and the others are primered-up and ready for base coat. I'll snap pictures as soon as I can escape work! 4/7/09 Jeeze, has it been THAT long since I've worked on him? I suppose it has, and much has happened in terms of changes. Mixmaster, as you knew him, is retired to become another project. As much as I like the Barricade mold for this figure, it's just too floppy to be a lower leg for a 'bot that weighs six or seven pounds. I like the new version, and hope you will too. I'm almost ready to start paint when the weather turns. 12/31/08 The wing is complete(sans paint), and Scrapper gets a new toy. Part of G1 Devastator's charm was that all of the combiner parts could be incorporated into the individual vehicle modes to make "attack modes." This prevented him from being a partsformer. In my humble opinion, I thought all of the "attack modes" were lame except for Scrapper's ultra-cool flying endloader look. Being he's the "boss" of the team, it's fitting that he gets to keep it in his updated form. The guns are actually on a swiveling turret, and can also raise/lower for aiming purposes. 12/30/08(part B) A quick shot of the in-progress chest shield. Another with it wired to the big guy temporarily. 12/30/08 Look who's standing on his own two feet! Well, his legs and torso anyway 12/28/08 Work has been crazy, so no time to play customize-the-Transformers. Finally found a few minutes before church this morning to update Mixmaster a bit. His cement barrel is mocked-up. The barrel will convert to a gun when finished. 11/26/08 A quick mock-up of how the big guy may look. Squint your eyes REALLY hard and imagine Hook where the yellow unicron kibble currently is, and you get the idea! He's finally coming together. Just a bit of work on Hook, Mixmaster and a TON of painting! Oh, and happy Birthday to me! 11/25/08 I threw together a semi-quick mockup of arms, and they aren't the arms you've been seeing on other Devastators! 11/4/08: You guys may remember wayyyyyyyy back when I made this: Radicons - TFW2005 - The 2005 Boards ...for my take on the gigantic Devastator that Ptitvite and F-R had just finished making themselves. Well, in the meanwhile I've gotten plenty of small projects done for the big guy, but one has haunted me all along: Mixmaster. As great as all of the other huge Devastators have been, I've noticed that everyone has had their own struggle re-creating Mix', particularly the front of the truck itself. I'm not one to be content with a partial homage, so I put a lot of thought into this, and am pleased with the partial results. Let me know what you think(and save the clown shoe jokes please ). I obviously have a fair bit of filling in to do.
