    Steamhammer into Long Haul + Devastaor pics added!

    Hi guys,
    here is my conversion to turn steamhammer into Long Haul. I always hated the way Steamhammer looked...so I changed him.

    thanks for looking.

    More pictures on my site below!
    Added Combined pics!!! 03-29-2010

    Wow! That's amazing. I wouldn't even have recognized the vehicle mode as Steamhammer!

    That's pure awesome man. I've got something similar in the works. Seeing yours solidifies that the concept will work nicely.

    Beautiful paint apps BTW. The day I can paint like that will be the 2nd happiest day in my life. So does this mean we will be seeing Devastator soon?

    Edit: Just noticed that his robot arms appear to attach to the outside of the wheels in robot mode. Is he a parts former?

    Excellent work! Really like the asymmetrical silhouette of the bot mode, it's distinctive and gives it some weight.

    Excelent Idea! All except for the partsforming but I think we all can look past that for what is undoubtedlly one of the best Longhauls ive seen. I dont believe anyone has asked this yet but were did you get the dump truck parts? I would love to give this a go, as long as its ok.

    thanks for all the comments guys!
    Sorry for the late reply...I had to go see 30 seconds to mars/sick puppies/ breaking Benjamin last night...so i had to post and dash...lol
    Yeah....he's a parts former....sucks I know, but he will be in combined mode most of the time...so i dont mind...i just really wanted the dump truck bed on the back of my Devsastator. lol And...I hated Steamhammers alt mode with a passion....
    The arms are plug and play.....they plug into the hubcaps for robot mode, and into the waist parts for truck mode....even though the truck looks better with them off....but i like all my parts to attach in both modes.

    He can be made a non parts former, but the arms would have to be replaced....and since his combiner connectors are on the arms, I just kept them as is......i really want to add a real hand to his left arm....but i will keep the massive hand of destruction mode....as all the different weapons can be swapped and attach with magnets.
    I have had this done for months now....and YR's long haul post got me off my lazy butt and i took some pictures....lol! Glad to see we are on the same cranial wavelength...lol

    oh, and the dump truck is from Kmart....its from the "Mighty wheels" 3 vehicle set for $5.00!!!! The cement truck that comes with the set is perfect for the big Devi project.....which i need to finish as well.....

    thanks again!
    And to YR...I just bought another devi set...i cant wait to see what you come up with!!!!!
