    tf animated combiner (WIP)

    I just started a combiner made out of animated figures, I haven't seen anyone else try it so I decided to give it a go.
    so far I have 1 leg that attaches, and 2 hands that stick on magnetically
    jazz has been changed to soundwave, because his vehicle shape works a little better

    I'm changing the way blurr hooks on, i used pegs before, now I'm going to use ball joints. I also shortened the legs a bit and took out the movie prime arm parts. swindle and soundwave will hook on directly to schockwave.
    And now I'm making new combiner head for the combined mode


    the toys I am using, are shockwave, swindle, soundwave, blurr, and lockdown.


    I Don't know what to call this combiner yet, so post suggestions!
    feel free to post advice and helpful criticism, I would really appreciate it!

    a tip you might find useful:

    Blurr's neck has an extra joint, that pushes his head towards his back. You might be able to use it to hide his head in leg mode.

    Looking cool (the Shockwave body looks great as the main component). I'm not sure if the movie limbs will detract from the animated look, though. Will you be altering their appearance?

    EHH... i don't think the movie thighs are THAT distracting. YOu could get away with it.

    I'm guessing this is a new character combiner? I look forward to your progress.

    *First reaction: What the f***?!*

    I'm interested as to where this goes, if only because i'm totally lost right now (i'm betting on fan character or just something done for the hell of it i guess).

    Still, i await to see what will become of this project.

    *desperately searches for clues*

    EDIT: Would make for a pretty original Menasor...

    Glad to hear I'm not the only one who isn't interested in seeing another devastator, menasaur, or bruticus. I look forward to seeing your finished product. I'm also interested that you didn't bother to differentiate between autobot and decepticon too. Do you plan on doing any kind of history for this figure? The idea of a NEW combiner definitely appeals to me.

    There are so many obscure figures in the transformers world begging to be done even if someone didn't want to go the route of a fan created character, but at least it's something different. I'm excited to see your progress.

    I haven't thought of a history, or even a name for them yet, but they are all going to be decepticons
