    Okay, have a alot of junkers lying around so, I told myself why not. I plan to finish up individual bots first and tackle the Gestalt mode later. Might be a challange for me, but hey, it it does not work out, I will still have individual bots looking cool :D 

    I am still waiting for my First Aid to come in - will be getting Cybertron First Aid and mod the head and some other parts.

    Groove is from the Robot Master line - Double Face and a plan to use Breakaway for Streetwise. Just touched up Galaxy Convoy and TFU Blades to reflect a more G1 color scheme. This will be a very slow project so I'll update once I have breakthroughs :D  :D

    Man, this is worth watching! I love your take on the Protectobots! The paint jobs look professionnal! I do wish they would get new head sculpts but other than that, they look super sweet!

    And here I thought you were planning on using Cybertron Prime as Motormaster. That said I can see why you might've changed that plan: I keep starring at my Galaxy Force Prime on my desk can't help but think that he looks more like Hot Spot than Motormaster. I'm seriously considering making mine into Hot Spot as well and getting someone else for Motormaster. Or do you have another Galaxy Convoy/Cyb. Prime lying around?

    I like the G1 like paint scheme you put on Universe Blades. I also thought of using Galaxy Force First Aid as G1 First Aid as well though I was thinking more for RID Prowl for Streetwise and Axer for Groove.

    I'll be following this along. ;)

    To be wholly frank, I am still going to use Cyb Prime for Motormaster. I have a spare junker lying around and he will be turned to Motormaster soon as I get some of the head issues sorted out. In total I have 3 Cyb Primes, 2 have been turned into projects while 1 is still being displayed on my shelf as himself :D 

    As for Axer, he is pretty hard to find here, there will be some (or alot) of head banging on the wall sessions on how to figure out to make a teeny Groove into the arm unit of Defensor. Difficult, but I think not impossible. Just need to stretch my brain cells to figure that out. :lol

    The scale relation between all the bots is a bit poor. I'm not saying I'm smart enough to fix it, or do one myself. I'm just not sure there are enough molds of the a complimentary style and size to make this an easy task.

    All very nice, though I'm particularly fond of Blades getting his correct colors.

    If Hasbro were to make a good deluxe helicopter character, the universal scale issue wouldn't be so bad. This is why Defensor is so hard to plan out and make. There's always going to be a clash in scales.

    I like the 'bot to 'bot proportions! It's funny, the 'bot to 'bot sizes work most excellent when not combined, but in Defensor mode it may be a challenge. Overcome this and I will crown you King of Defensor 'bashers!!:bowdown:  BTW, Paint looks great!!:thumbs2:

    Hmm. First Aid is OK. I personally would've used some epoxy to put a mouthplate on the bottom of his face but this definitely works.

    Is it a deluxe though? It's considerably smaller than your Streetwise whom I know for a fact is a deluxe.
