    Ramrider and I were banging heads for awhile about putting together a six-scout PCC Devastator. I told him my idea for a PCC post coupler, and he used his mad 3d skills to design a set for use on Shapeways. So i picked up a set in black, and got to work on our little idea.

    Here's the lineup.

    Bombshock - Hook
    Mudslinger - Long Haul
    Sledge - Scavenger
    Steamhammer - Bonecrusher
    Huffer - Mixmaster
    Searchlight - Scrapper

    Laid upside down with some wheels and a plow tossed on, Searchlight will make for a very convincing Scrapper. Enjoy the pics. we're trying to figure out some forearm action - we had discussed using Minicons, or maybe designing some extra little parts. We'll see.

    Looks very promising! Maybe try having each of the armbots facing up. Then fold down a leg from each to be the lower arm. Can't wait to see it finished!

    i'm looking into some little add-on parts to the shovel on Scavenger, to make like a thumb. I'm not opposed to him having weird, monstery hands, and there's a lot of good articulation on that shovel arm thing. But i'm gonna have a look at Steamhammer and see if that'll do something for it. Good call!

    I have all those figures, I might give this a go. How tall does he stand? (that'll be the deal breaker for me, Collosus upgrade set is the bench mark.

    You know, I had a pretty similar idea... it just wasn't for Devastator. :D

    I will be watching this with great anticipation! I have been waiting for someone to attack this, and I think your adapter ports are the keys. Good Luck!!

    Here's a size comparison.

    Yeah i'm planning on doing this for Devy, Menasor, and maybe Bruticus. But who knows... these are so much fun, i might do all the major players.

    I had the same idea of a PCC Devastator awhile ago - except that I was going to just use the Energon front end loader limb as Scrapper lol I never had all the figures though, it looks like they work pretty well! I will be keeping an eye on this :D

    LOL, I think everybody is working on this! I'm using a slightly different recipe, and a slightly different approach altogether. Great minds and all......:cool:

    Dash, is that a thing? Treadshot A1 is making a Predaking Dash. Does that mean smaller or something? You could call it that i suppose :) 

    I'm kinda looking at him as a Devastator Jr. or something.

    Thinking about it, it might be cool to at least splice parts from the Maximus to make better Constructicons out of the PCCs. Like taking one of the crane hooks to mount on Bombshock's turret, for instance. I do also like the idea of using the Energon front loader mould for Scrapper, as the likeness is really good already (barring the head, of course), but the trick there would be loading him with the PCC functionality to work with the others...
