    I want to make a Movie MixMaster the coolest Constructicon and 1 of my favorites as well =)

    Im open to any ideas on making this idea a reality!


    Well after a while of planning things out n such i final got wut iv needed to make a MixMaster!!
    i went 2 Wal-mart n got a Tonka $5.00 Cement truck n it has been taken of and now its beening added to my Dropkick which i have also moded as well =) will have pics posted ASAP!

    *UPDATE JUNE 22 2008 PART 2*

    *HEAD ADVICE FOR MIXMASTER*
    I need advice on choosing a head for MixMaster?
    Anybody have any ideas about what type of head
    i should use for mixmaster??

    *UPDATE JUNE 25 2008*
    I have now choosen a head for mixmaster! iv choosen.........................................................................Longarm's!
    i switched my upcoming LongHauls head(Longarm) with my Mixmaster's head(Dropkick) i think i made a good choice =)
    Dropkicks Head looks more LongHaulish anyways =)
    -Justed Added New Head Shots!

    *PAINT ADDVICE*
    Now its time for the painting =D finally almost complete!
    but the question is, How am i going to paint him? im going for a Hunter Green, but the chest in Robot mode? i think ill paint it Purple and how im going to paint his head.
    Addvice is Welcomed!

    *COLOURS CHOSEN*
    Ok IV made a choice on what colours im going to use on Mixmaster over here, its going to be a Realworld meets Cartoon, basiclly its going to be a darker green but the barrel wit stay purple along with other parts of his body but it will not be noticible in Vehical mode =)

    *PAINTING PROCESS BEGINS!*
    the painting process begins, well began early this afternoon its now50% complete=D

    *UPDATE! NEW BUSINESS!*
    Now iv been thinkin about this 4 a while, thinking about making the other Constructicons! and with some thought n sketches and such iv decided to go on with IT!=) Thanks for the idea superquad7! this one is for all the Devastor/Constructicon FANS!!
    And Mixmaster is still in painting im upnorth soo i dont have any cameras around to load up Mixmasters looks now but i will ASAP

    the chest looks like Dropkick/Salvage style. maybe you can use him as the base figure

    that's an awesome and very challenging idea...It might seem out there, but I'd recommend using voyager or leader prime for your base.

    I think the easiest way would be dropkick. the transformations already there for the most part, most of the work would just be in cutting up a concrete drum from some like-sized toy.

    well, i think if you went with OP as a base, you'd need to scrap the idea of him being flat nosed in the front, unless of course, you used Voyager sized, where you can permanently remove the front nose/backback, and go from there. I see a lot of prime in the arms and legs.

    well with dropkick, you could just use shell pieces to make the cab like a flat-nose, and replace the truck bed shell with parts from a cement mixer. that shouldnt' be terribly bad. the work is in cutting up the drum to split like in the drawing. The result would be taller feet, but that's not a big deal... and the truck bed shell parts are already kibble on his upper back and shoulders, so having the drum be in the right area is already patially done for you.

    the voyager sized movie optimus prime figure should make for ideal kitbash fodder for you

    if you can succesfully mode the figure so that the mixing barrol drum portion of the cement truck replaces the truck cab and the cement ytrucks cab portion replaces the rear portion of the long nose cab truck that should pretty much do it
