ULTRA Devastator - 24"+ * Constructicons * WIP **UPDATE 4/10/10** UPDATE 4/10/10: Some preliminary bot mode pics on post #52, Click Here 4/07/10: New pics of 'finalized' arm design for Bonecrusher at bottom of post. Had this in the works since last year, finally got around to getting it together last month. Please note that everything pictured thus far is just a mock-up or placeholder of sorts. Thank you so much to everyone who has built a Devastator or Menasor or any other combiner, you are all extremely inspiring and I've been lurking your threads for almost two years now! So my Devastator dream is to use all Voyager Class and above figures to create a monster. I want it to be G1 inspired, with a heavy dose of Mad Max/future combat construction vehicles that look like they can take a hit from anything. After lots of trial and error, I came up with this: The list of bots to be used is as follows: HOOK - Ultra Class Countdown/Cyb. Def. Red Alert + Cyb. Mudflap parts SCAVENGER - ROTF Voyager Demolishor + ROTF Leader Megatron parts BONECRUSHER - Voyager Dropshot + Cyb. Quickmix & ROTF Rampage parts LONG HAUL - ROTF Voyager Long Haul (LOL.) SCRAPPER - ROTF Supreme Devastor Scrapper + ROTF Long Haul & Stratosphere parts (bot mode!!) MIXMASTER - Cyb./Galaxy Force Optimus Prime + Quickmix parts ... and thats the list so far, there are probably a half dozen more bots getting chopped up for this. For instance, they will all have Ultra/Voyager Class heads from the Cyb./Universe line to match up as close as possible with their G1 counterparts. Gonna use Primus forearms with modded Unicron hands (they just look too damn cool and the cannons fit in nicely with the theme), still on the fence about thighs and waist yet. But I have both Primuses and Unicrons on deck to donate their parts after I feel out a few different options. I may go another route completely as well. I will be using a mix of heavy duty Struxx ball joints and connectors along with Lego Knights for the smaller stuff like the wrists. I still have a lot of bugs to work out, and my punchlist for this is a least a month long -- I will update as I go along! Update 4/07/10: Bonecrusher arm: I used a TFTM Leader Brawl leg and reconfigured it with screws, epoxy, and a hybrid Struxx/Lego Knights joint (!), and embedded a magnet into the end of the joint, and another magnet into the hold in Bonecrusher where it plugs in for extra strength. This should be able to hold at least a Voyager class bot in his hand. I would hate for all this to come together and have it be some delicate statue. Its gotta be strong and have decent playability. I came up with the idea/reason for the Brawl leg because I want all the kibble and extra crap to partsform together into some kind of rolling drone, and depending on how the thighs and waist shape up, it will probably end up being some sort of tank that can sort of 'stand guard' while the Constructicons are...constructing stuff. I dunno. I just don't like any leftover parts. Thanks again and let me know what you think!
