    Even though he is only at 30% right now, i thought that i might as well show him.

    Currently, all i have is Cerebros and the upper part of his planned torso.

    As for size comparison, i have pics with him near Cliffjumper. Currently, his arm is as big as CJ

    He will be completely built from bionicle pieces, which is why i am canceling the original Snapdragon and Kickback plans i had

    UPDATE
    He is almost completely built.

    Here is a comparison shot between him and Optimus, Optimus is as tall as his current legs.

    He currently stands at 26 inches tall. Only ten more to go!

    UPDATE
    Here is him completely built. He only stands at 2 feet instead of the intended 3, but that is only because i ran out of bulky parts. He is compared with my custom Eject and Optimus.

    The first pic reminds me more of the Steam shovel from the trailers.

    Now if Dev in the movie is supposed to be over 100 feet, where does fortress maximus stand with respects to that line...or do we just say he's NYC or something?

    Maybe he would be as big as 3 NYC. FM was bigger than Devy in the cartoon right?

    Fm was huge!!! a combiners head was like the hight of regular Tf (starscream, bruticus) which is probably the biggest depiction of them. however a combiner is probably like a mini con to him if that. I may be streching it a bit but yiou get the idea, think big

    He looks gigantic, but you about to tell me about an idea from your other thread, but I didn't got a response. So I'm all ears.

    Oh I see, I thought it was something about a custom from me. I guess I was misinformed.

    Well I say spraypaint, but you have to use alot of painter's tape for this job. So its your choice.

    There's a lot more involved with spray painting because it's potentially messier. You have to designate an area for your work (i.e. outside, a well-ventilated place) and make sure paint doesn't get in certain areas. Masking is definitely key. You're also dealing with fumes.

    If I may be frank, I think you should stick to brush painting until you master it. There's still room for improvement with your painting. Again, I'm just trying to be honest and spare you the headache of something you're not quite ready for.
