I really Couldn't resist trying this out (still a WIP):
You also going to paint the Mini-con arm/leg thingys.
Yeah, everything is getting painted. i still have to pick which Mini-cons/drones, to use as well... i also want to add some more "stuff" to him
You can add one of the jet drones to be Starscream, one of the sportscar drones for Soundwave.
Then the Combaticon Tank could be Shockwave and the Combaticon Missle Carrier could be Devcon.*shrug*
^ But then the awesome Mad Max theme would disappear!
Speaking of which, this is bloody brilliant, and painfully obvious in hindsight.
that's is looking nice I like the idea,
No, it wouldn't.
Yes it would. If you take away the 4 Mad Max drones from the Mad Max Commander and replace them with 4 non-Mad Max drones you remove the Mad Max theme going on. A Mad Max truck, a perfectly normal jet, a perfectly normal sports car, and two perfectly normal tanks does not make a Mad Max team.
Not rocket science.
Well, it's a good thing these drones are so interchangable....as that was the whole point with the PCC line. He could come up with some pretty interesting combinations. And that's pretty much why I said it wouldn't take away from the Mad Max vibe since everything can be swapped in and out with ease. Not rocket science.
Easy mates, I appreciate both suggestions. I don't think I will be using the Starscream, Soundwave, Shockwave theme, at least not in that they would be actually them. I mean the way I envision this custom is rather simple, while Truck Megs was getting his new truck mode, he was in a junkyard or a wreck yard...there he had the Doctor create drones that he could link up with to make him more powerful.
Now ideally i will have at least 4 drones(all of them custom painted, but a few will be customized in some way to be a more cohesive looking "team").
Anyway, thanks everyone!
When i saw the pictures of megatron on set, I thought he was motormaster and the dreads were his limbs. Are there any drones that look like the dreads?
All I'm really saying is that you can pretty much go with an unlimited combination of themes. You can revisit this several times over if you'd like due to the interchangeable nature of it all.
That's a really clever idea, I'd never think of using PCC Huffer as Megatron but now it's pretty obvious. And the shotgun/cannon is a nice finishing touch. I'm anxious to see the finished product. I'd totally buy one.
Well in the PCC sub-line you have the "Rally bots" with their race car motifs, and the Destrons (they are featured here in this thread) have a jet-propelled Armoured Car-type vehicle(but that one only forms a leg). The limbs in general for the PCC-line are pretty stuck with that design flaw (meaning that if the vehicle drone is meant to be an arm, it can only be either arm, but not a leg).
Hope that helps a little mate.
