    Looks, in a word, perfect.

    My only concern would be that there's probably a lot of variation in the width of the dual-pegs, but you could probably get away with just "engaging" one in most cases...

    That's why I kept both ends open so there can be more play with the leg components.

    That's kind of what I'm designing for a port system on my PCC stuff. Good job.

    Can't wait to see what you do. More variety, the better.

    It's already in the shop if you wanna buy.

    I agree. I like your "all purpose" approach that will enhance any figure. I'm going for a more figure specific set of upgrades, but there will be all purpose stuff too.

    I dig the fists bud!

    DONE. I got a full suite of stuff, now I just gotta figure out what to use them with.

    PLEASE get the Energon-style parts up and running ASAP, I'm even more interested in them :)

    Thanks! The PCC guys have a lot of potential but Hasbro failed to utilize it. When I first saw them, I automatically thought of a landcross type line of bots. That was my inspiration.

    Can't wait to see what you are planning!
    The Energon parts will be released once I have the prototypes in my hands and they work as intended.

    That makes 2 of us! :lol 

    I'll be patient, I'm subscribed to this thread, so I trust you'll let us know once they're available :) 

    One other product suggestion- While, as it stands, PCC figures are easy to come buy, so the "blue blocks" are easily scavenged from existing toys, it might be useful to have Male-Male or Male-Post options available so that if you want to add an non-PCC figure into a PCC-based-group you can do so without a ton of work.

    Also, once you verify that the Energon designs work, PLEASE do some Energon-PCC "converters" I think mostly a Female-Energon/Female-PCC set up will be the most useful. ESPECIALLY something like your "PCC Leg Adapter" (The T-shaped one), so that you could attach a PCC-Scout as a leg to a Energon-torso. Something to accomplish the same with the arms would also be great.

    Great stuff, keep it up!

    Thanks again!. If you didn't notice, I've already hinted at merging the PCC and Energon lines together. I posted the image on the first post, but i'll put it here for you. ;)  Take a look at the left arm.

    Not available in the store yet but I wanted to show these off.

    Once i'm done working out all the kinks, I will be selling adapters to apply to any Energon combiner and possibly for the Powercore Combiners, if there are enough interests.

    Bruticus has a new pair of shoes. Hah. Neat.

    Now combining Energon and PCC is a neat premise alright. It'd be darn cool to see someone integrate Steamhammer and Sledge into the Energon Constructicon Maximus team.

    Oh and what's with the "Devastating Surprise" btw?

    Just to let you guys know to keep an eye out on this thread tomorrow as I will reveal one of my new projects.

    Also, I just picked up 2 new PCC commanders, Icepick and Leadfoot, so I wanted to show everybody again how versatile these PCC guys are with the PCC connector ports.

    This is great stuff! My buddy ramrider worked on some too, much like the cinderblock big hank mentioned. I gave him the design, and he did the 3d work. This takes it to a whole new level, and i am excited to see what happens!

    Leadfoot and Icepick make damn good feet. I've seen Smolder as an arm place a bit differently but this is still pretty cool.

    Not keen on Bombshock being the central figure. Maybe Heavytread if you can find him? IMO he's one of the best Commander torsos, or use Sledge.

    Wonder what the combiner team would be called tho... I mean you got a Tank (or Drill) for the chest, Truck and Emergency SUV for arms, a Racecar and Snow Mobile for legs.

    Oh... and that "something Devastating." gonna be shown tomorrow? ;p

    Unfortunatly, it's not available in the store yet. A slight revision is needed to get this to work the way I want it to.

    Also, the PCC to Energon conversion port and Energon shoulder blocks are almost ready for release as well!

    [​IMG]

    Most of these items(hopefully all) should be available roughly in 2 weeks, if everything goes according to plan.

    Hope you guys like what you see and one last teaser on what's next. ;)
