    My first TF Custom

    Like to thank "dreadstar" and "RyanUybengkee" of YouTube.

    I tried to create my own version. Open to comments. ;D

    The "Boots" mods:

    While looking at others works I noticed that the legs were to me kinda too long in comparison to superion's thighs and torso(which are for a little dwarfy looking ;D).

    So I tried to shorten my version and this what I came up with:

    [​IMG]

    I think its half a inch shorter than others' works .I also tried to give the legs a more bulk on the calves area to act as leg thrusters.

    The "Arms" mods:

    I didn't like the articulation of others' design utilizing the "Tail Fins" of the planes to add more range to the arms. After trying different configurations, I ended up with this:

    [​IMG]

    This configuration using the connector, can add more range of arm motion in my opinion :) 

    Just using the forearms and hands of TF Crossover Hulk and the energon bits, I ended up with this:

    [​IMG]

    I also separated the fingers.

    Combined with TFU Superion:

    The gun can be stored at the back:

    Compared to Classics Optimus Prime:

    Compared to FP's Bruticus Add-on Kit:

    I still like bruticus more so I'm ok that superion is shorter haha.

    I find the Hulk forearms are a bit too large and heavy-duty for the rest of Superion, but I like the legs quite a bit! Nice job! :thumb

    Very, very cool but the forearms look a tad too big. Anyway, ingenious idea!!

    I think I'm going to redesign one of the combiners I'm working on. This is a stroke of genius you have!

    No the combiner ports are completely different. Also Energon Gestalts are formed by a smaller Deluxe-sized figure with four Scouts as limbs. The PCC combiners are formed from a smaller Scout connected by flimsy, minuscule drone pieces.

    Back to main thread... I would say the hands would work better on a Bruticus moreso than Superion. In any regards, this does stand as a significant improvement over the silly Energon Hands/Feet from before. I do think the idea of pegging his arms via the Energon connection is quite dandy!

    Should look at this thread too: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/429780-superion-maximus-add-ons.html for ideas on making a set of items that work in Combined and Individual modes. He uses the same feet, but bought an Infinity Warefare set to beef them up.

    @codexcdm
    Yeah that was my Superion add-ons thread. I really wanted to keep the Fansproject inspired aspect of having everything usable in the other modes.

    @tiamat02777
    I was wondering how stable is that foot configuration?
    My configuration is very stable since it connects to the leg bot both in the front and the back. Also do you have plans on making the add-ons usable in the other modes?

    i just got frustrated with mine, so into the FOR SALE box he went after seeing if i could salvage his Galactus head(it can't be, darn it, not without making it permanent). Airazer is nervous that she is next to go(she was his arm), i never got the commonly used leg guys, since i prefer super sonic jets.

    Nice. I'm just waiting for my Grey Hulk and I'll be able to get this mod done. Question, where did the gun come from? Thanks.

    Pretty cool. Those forearms kind of remind me of rocket fists.
