    I'm looking to create a very large combiner using movie figures but i haven't a clue on how to modify them to stay together. I have a few ideas but wanted to see if anyone knew of better ways.

    trial and error, and lots of building kits, like neo-shifters, legos, etc.

    i remember trying to make transformers out of legos when i was little LOL. I'm sure my ideas will be alot of trial and error, i'm stuck on a arm cannon for a megatron and can't get it right.

    trick is to look at how real TF's do it. whether you steal the Energon combiner ports, or use pegs, or clips, whatever. That should help you figure things out immensely.

    23000 posts, yay!

    the only combiners i have at the moment are a knockoff from japan and a the universe rail racer so i'll have to see what i can com up with. I'd kinda like something along the lines of the G1 style where they lock in but still move easily. the posts would be easy but the clips they go into wouldn't be unless i used pins to hold them together.
