(WIP) Well, as always i'm following a strict theme with my latest customs. This time, i'm building crossovers. more specifically, Robot Wars Crossovers (RWX)! That basically means Transformers versions of the heavyweight robots from said TV show. 01 is being kept secret for now, and 02 is...well, in need of a name (the only robot not directly inspired by a robot), but 03 is all ready for paint! Inspired by this guy: Thermidor 2 - Robot Wars Wiki - Robot Wars Extreme, BBC Of course, some liberties had to be taken, what with the whole "transforms into a humanoid robot" concept. Claws were made more wedge shaped (less lobster-y i guess), and the hinge means the toy isn't invertible. Also, the flipper has holes in it, because....well, i stole the flipper from ROTF Soundwave. The hardest part has to be the claws. I gave up on trying to make styrene claws that actually looked like a lobster's, as that's just beyond my patience levels right now. So i settled for simple wedges/spikes, and kept readjusting and cutting until the legs worked in robot mode. Parts used: DOTM Backfire (everything but the legs and guns and Spike) Universe Fireflight (Legs, salvaged from a failed Powerglide project) ROTF Soundwave (Satellite piece, the symmetrical one) HFTD Payload (Wheels, spliced from the back axle) Styrene and misc. Lego parts Painting will begin as soon as my exams finish, assuming i'm still in one piece by then, and haven't exploded from excess studying...which i should be doing now, come to think of it. I guess i'm doing these customs partly because i like destructive alt. modes, but mainly because i loved the show as a kid, and the pullback toys suck, so i'm trying to create decent versions of each robot. While i don't have much affinity for Thermidor 2 (Seasons 4 and beyond never aired here), i hope i did it some justice. Some. Maybe. Okay, probably not, but still...points for trying?
