    Superion Maximus Add-Ons (Pic Heavy)

    Here is my Superion Maximus Add-On. I wasn't able to get the Fansproject Crossfire set, so after seeing someone else's Superion with Crossover Hulk parts, I decided to give it a try. I wasn't able to find any detailed instructions on how to use the Hulk parts so I tried to take alot of pics to show off how I did it for other people to try. I used Mighty Putty as a filler for the forearms, legs, and chest pieces. I also used Process's excellent Abdomin Filler found
    here:

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/319026-e-u-rotf-superion-abdomen-filler.html

    I used Version 4 with Alt. Mode and Forward Leg Movement. I really can't recommend it enough, IT MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE. And by happy accident it fits almost perfectly into the hole at the top of a G1 Superion Chest piece.

    All of the Gestalt parts have Alt. Mode and Robot Mode usage or storage, so no parts are just hanging loose. Mostly they give 3 of the planes Afterburners for Alt. Mode or Jetpacks for Robot Mode. The gun is from Universe Silverbolt, handle is a part that came with Shadow Rollar with Mighty Putty and a peg added on. I kept all the Energon weapons and stars, so I didn't paint the hands. Only thing I wanted to do but wasn't able to get it done right was having Storm Jet use the gun in Alt. Mode instead of making it into a nosegun for Treadshot.

    The elbows and hands are from the Junkion Blacksmith Infinity Warfare set, and the forearm piece is made from the back part of a MechWarrior: Dark Age M.A.S.H. Unit.

    Questions and comments welcome,
    Let me know what you think.

    Good Idea! ...Only constructive criticism I could provide is that you should look into painting the forearms and feet. The grays on them atm detract from a figure where all bots basically have white as their base color.

    Hm... I think that would work well for a Nexus Prime mod. I have two spare Aerialbots, and the two RotF Combaticons since I acquired an FP upgrade for Bruticus... now I just need a TF Hulk that I can butcher!

    That's really awesome! I like the proportion of the add ons to Superion as well. Gives him a real ready for action look. Plus actually using them as upgrades to the members of the team individually makes the whole thing even better!

    Ya know I never thought about that... but unless I found a set to cut up.. I'd NEVER do it. In retrospect, that show was... very silly... but I got Servo, Draco, and Xenon all in one birthday... aw man that was a Happy Birthday for me alright... those toys were, and still are, awesome! Laost my Neutron Servo's accessories and Draco's Chestplate, but otherwise they're mostly complete and still nice display pieces.

    Hm... made me go and take these suckers apart outta curiousity.

    Looking at Xenon and Draco... both Arms could work. Their legs, however, are wayyyyy too bulky to use. Xenon's drill bits, with some cutting, could serve as decent drill-bit feet. (Constructicon mod idea?)

    That said, again, I won't be gutting these guys. Can't find a decent set on eBay atm either. =/

    Superion looks great, but I noticed that you seem to have hands and feet on that Devastator as well... Are those also Hulk parts??
