    Just a quick update to show you guys how the whole process of building each vehicle, works ...

    As COWCLONE suggested, I am making a short 'how to' youtube video for this, will probably post it tomorrow or wednesday. I wanted to post it this morning .. but ..well I gotta go to work, and the video wouldn't show much more than the wire frame in any case.

    Progress:

    -the front end of scrapper ,is mostly complete and unpainted.

    -I have started building the main body of the vehicle ( most clearly seen in the last photo.

    -I included some of my sketches of how I will transform it.

    Nah ,its not an 'alt mode' its just how it transforms into a hand.

    After providing space for the vortex ( two small fans, in series ), it would be impossible to give mixmaster and demolisher their own robot modes; so I just decided to leave it be, and just work on getting them to form devastator (which is a complex transformation, by itself).

    If I had to consider alt modes ..that would take a VERY long time. I'm going for movie accuracy, .. and if my memory serves right .. the vehicles that transformed into devastator, were never shown transforming back into individual robots.

    Also an Idea. Make More than the 6 contructicons on the regular toys. There is actually about 8 or 9. Hightower's Arm Is 2 robots. Overload of course. And overload also formsalot of Dev's head. For an epic 3rd one you should have Another Bulldozer to form the Leg of Rapage because Rampage is MUCH smaller then Long Haul (Movie Version, Not early concept from 25 Years on Transformers) And add Missle Launchers On Dev's Back

    Thanks, actually, i am going for much more than 6. My plan is;

    right arm : scrapper, plus yellow long haul. people keep saying That it is just scrapper, but I can't help but notice what looks like the 'scoop' of a dump truck in his upper arm.

    [​IMG]

    left arm: 1 high tower, plus 1 rampage

    left leg : 2x rampage (all 3 rampages should be the same size).

    right leg : 2x long-haul

    body : 1 demolisher (chest) 1 overload (torso) 1 mixmaster (head)

    About how much smaller than long-haul is rampage ? I don't want the rampage leg to be bigger ( as I have seen when others tried to customize using 2 rampages ).
