WIP: My OTFCC Defensor Take Hello Everyone! I'm very new to this customization thing, so right now anything I have is just in the planning stage, but hopefully I can use this thread to document whatever I'm doing/come up with to create my own OTFCC Defensor! Being that I'm new to this, I'm not great with painting and such, so this is all going to be a learning experience for me, but when I'm done he will be done right! The goals of my design will be to look like the OTFCC Defensor (I'll attach that pic as an attachment), however have the combiner limbs. Since the OTFCC Defensor is based off of RID Prime, I would like my Defensor to have 3 modes.. 1) Hotspot alone, this will be prime's body just like OTFCC Defensor 2) Defensor - This will be the OTFCC Defensor mode 3) Supreme Defensor - This will combine the other limbs in order to form my masterpiece. All I've got to show for now is the plans, and relative sizes.. I've got some more things brewing, but I need money to keep going, so it will be a long journey, but I invite you to experience it with me! Here's what's happening now: 1) Researching painting techniques and potential air brushes and such 2) Researching how to connect components as well as coming up with connection points 3) ordering components.. It's darn hard to figure out what to use for a head! Status of Parts: RID Prime- AKA Hotspot - Obtained RID Axer - AKA Groove - Obtained Energon Towline - AKA First Aid - converted to a leg Classics Prowl - AKA Streetwise - Second copy in transit Classics Blades - Himself - Obtained Connection Pieces - Combination of Struxx and Neo Shifters at this point. Enjoy! Feedback is always appreciated, but don't be discouraged if I don't listen as I already feel I've got a solid plan in mind!! *edited attachments so nobody things the real OTFCC Defensor is actually mine* 09/11/2009 A Quick Digibash of my vision for the trailer mode done by my good friend Stu (AKA Maximo Prime) and a mock up attachment of the upper arms! 09/17/2009 Created a leg out of Towline. Created the arm out of Blades Still waiting on my choppable Prowl before I can really dive in further! Decided to Use the Supreme Robo 1 head by YourReflection as Defensor's Head! Also added some Pics of some (mostly) pre-modded bots to show their relative sizes in both alt mode and bot mode! 09/30/2009 No the project has not been abandoned! I merely am waiting to get all the parts I need.. I'm looking at you prowl!! Although I've been playing around with some ideas and am thinking I might use Axer as a leg.. Pics are attached. The awesome awesome head from Yourreflection has shown up, but I fear it's a little too big.. Opinions?? I'm probably going to shave the side pipe things of it which will cut it's overall width down by about 1/4" Also, if I use prowl as an arm instead I'm torn if I want to have that Missile pod on the one arm or just the car.. Opinions there are appreciated as well! Note that the connections between the legs and prime are going to be shorter, it was just the only way I could prop him up like that. Also I'm over my 20 pictures in this message so I will be filling my posts (from here) with added pictures, so just scroll down to the next time I posted to see any overflow pics.
