    It's been a while since I've posted anything of worth on Radicons, but I'm back. I've resumed my Liokaiser commission and have made a few changes since the beginning. I was initially going to use the Steelshot/Bombshock mold for Killbison, but that was BEFORE I came across an an extra Heavytread during a recent trip to Walmart. However, I'm still using the twin cannons from the aforementioned Steelshot/Bombshock...I'll just be transplanting them to Heavytread. Also, Leadfoot was going to be Jaruga, but I opted for DOTM Sandstorm as he better resembles Jaruga's alt and bot modes.

    To look at the older WIP photos, please refer to the album I posted: TFW2005 - The 2005 Boards - Satomiblood's Album: Project Liokaiser

    PCC Skyhammer = Leozack
    PCC Darkstream = Gaihawk
    PCC Skyburst = Hellbat
    PCC Heavytread = Killbison
    PCC Icepick = Drillhorn
    DOTM Sandstorm = Jaruga


    UPDATE 8/14/13: New photos posted of the combined mode (upper body). I've connected the Skyburst/Darkstream mold to the combiner torso with a combination of Struxx and Lego parts. Skyhammer will attach to the blue Gundam chest piece via the blue PCC connectors on his feet. I've cut out a pair of PCC drone ports and will be fixing them to the bottom of the blue chest portion.

    Next: I'll be fixing Sandstorm to Skyhammer (stay tuned)...

    I'll be keeping an eye on this bud! I'm modding my big ass PCC combiner guy to be LioKaiser as well.

    What are you using for Hellbat?

    Death Cobra FTW!!!!!!

    *ahem*

    I mean, I had been thinking of trying this myself. One of these days I'm going to quit just thinking and make something of myself these days.....

    So we have two projects from one of the masters. I really can't wait to see this.

    Death Cobra deserves this chance. Be the man to do it.

    Great sounding project - I love to see Liokaiser customs :D  Also, I had completely forgotten about PCC Ice Pick - I was thinking about a PCC Landcross and he would be perfect as Tacker lol

    I'm not sure yet. Exomega255 told me that he's okay with me re-using the Skyburst mold for Gaihawk and Hellbat, respectively. I may look into some of the Energon combiner scouts, though.

    I should probably clarify that I'm going to be making some sort of connector box for the joints, especially the one that connects Killbison (Steelshot) to Jaruga (Leadfoot). The bottom portion of the "box" will boast 2 PCC sockets for Killbison, while the top portion will boast 1 PCC socket for Jaruga.

    I think this looks like its on its way. My only real suggestion is to take the time to make the individual robots, specifically the heads, look something like the G1 molds and/or the cartoon. There are plenty of Liokaiser attempts that stop just short of the end zone by not really bothering to make the individual bot modes anything special, and it'd be a shame to end up with another "looks good only when combined" Liokaiser out there.

    It might be difficult, but I'm trying my best to differentiate them from one another. I'll be making their animal partners. Their actual heads might be tough since they're much smaller than deluxe heads. But we'll see what happens.

    Nice call on the animal partners, I'm really looking forward to that. Don't get me wrong about the head issue, I think this is worthwhile either way, but I think there's a ton of room for improvement over every other Liokaiser update so far.
