    I got a nex max from zedzdead and lucs on here.

    Then I started browsing the web for custom
    combinations to try and make it look cooler.

    I was really inspired by a primus1
    from tformers who found a way
    of getting a fansproject superion kit on there
    w/ ALL limbs.

    Anyways, here's my unique take on it.
    It uses all figures and every part of the FP
    kit except for the sunglasses :rock 

    Requires no modifying of the figures and
    no extra parts.

    I ended up w/ an extra heatwave
    and did this "heavy armor" mode.
    I can't explain how the back latches on,
    it has something to do with the angle
    of the arms.

    You can adjust the "back launchers" to point forward:

    Here's the two combos I did
    to make it all work.

    Topspin's other arm's wing
    is tucked in the heatwave chest cavity
    and you push the chest panels
    against the arm:

    The key for landquake is to push one of
    the legs into the back part of the FP foot.

    On mine the connection was really tight and
    the foot never fell off.

    Very nice. I will have to post up my slight alteration. My topspin/helicopters other arm locks into the chest flaps of onslaught.

    It's the coloration of the set that integrates so well. It doesn't look as if it's "unfinished" as is does on Superion.

    Dang, that looks pretty cool! I really like the shoulder cannon thing on Nexus Maximus. I might try that with either Superion or Bruticus (if he ever comes out over here....).

    man, i should ask tfsource, bbts, and toy arena for some of the money they'll make from all these extra kits being sold...lol

    solscud has a real trick looking bruticus with a new way of getting the helicopters on and a KO head from the downsized g1 brut....hopefully he'll post pics soon.

    for the bruticus face i cut apart the stock one and used the faceplate from a g1 soundwave painted with tamiya primer gray, awesome.

    I always said the appendage kit looks way better on Nexus Maximus. But I may purchase Bruticus now.

    Wow.. This is tempting me to go out and buy another FP Superion Kit!

    Has anyone done anything similar to classics dev?
