    Hey Everyone! Tanukiyasha here with a new project, and this one is a big one!

    I am SO sick of seeing so many decepticon combiner projects! Where is the love for the freaking autobots!?

    Well I'm going to do something about it. Starting off with DEFENSOR!

    The Protectobots deserve some spotlight, don't you agree? And the first to showcase is FIRST AID.

    I used Universe Ratchet for this mold!

    Once again, my painting style needs work, but at least I'm trying dammit! I hope to continue work on this project very soon, but some help would be nice.

    Oh well.

    Painting the chest in robot mode goes a long way, and sweet head for him (just wish it was a little more squareish ;) ),
    I'm diggin it man.

    Can we get a close-up of your work on the head?

    Nice job! The head looks good, and painting the robot mode did go a long way towards making him more recognizeable.

    Anyway you can get in there and repaint that horrible black looking engine block to something nicer, like a red/silver stripe to resemble the G1 toy? It looks awkward as the only piece of black left.

    The head looks great bro, but the red looks a bit thick IMO. Nice job overall. :thumb

    Nice!:thumbs2: 

    Also: Autobot symbol on the buttocks! Never seen something like that implimented in a custom before, but I can see how it works for alt. mode.

    I can't seem to get to it without breaking the figure. Even after taking it apart by the screws.

    I was able to get it out without a problem when I did my First Aid.

    If he's anything like Cyclonus, I can sympathize. Half the pieces were glued together in addition to being screwed, and some were held together by magic and I could not take them apart. ;-)
