Hi! Take time to read! Alot of useful info in there! Since I started kitbashing my ultimate goal was to have a freakin awesome Devastator that would at least have some cartoon accuracy in it. Well, after two years of waiting, thinking, and buying TF's, I had come up with an idea that would make this possible. It took me just about six months to do this guy. Working on a combiner is tuff! This is also my first trial at blackwash. I did this so that they would not look too clean. So to catalog things: RID Built Team or Universe Devastator, Cybertron Landmine, Energon Demolisher. Energon Barricade used as base figures. Hook is made from Hightower combined with Energon Strongarm's arms. Devastator head is sculpted from a Supreme Starscream head (donated from Hoolagrin) and holds with a balljoint Shield is from RID Ultra Magnus's knee and a KO Dev shield. Forearms are from Cyb Primus Upper legs and crotch are from Unicron and used E Sledge and Duststorm for the combiner ports (Dev's knees). The arms and torso are held together by scratchbuilt parts: They are made using Lego Knights, Lego techics, styrene and epoxy glue. I can't say more as they were made for my Devastator and fit especially on it. Since Hook (RID Hightower) is modified, the scratchbuilt connector would not work on a repainted stock RID Hightower. The key word of this bash would be aesthetics. As much as I wanted Devastator to be G1 toy accurate, I wanted his aesthetics to be toon style. Aesthetics is probably the biggest challenge when doing a combiner, but I think I succeeded in a good way. The proportions couldn't have been better, and the combined mode does not suffer from lost articulation. Being 14.5 inches tall and pretty heavy, he looks rather nice when pictured with other classics. And finally, I gave myself 5 stars for all that hard work!
