    Sq- How did you train yer cat to do that? lol

    Fedor- Yeah, I recomend what SQ said... search function. But to answer some of your other questions... There's only one size Unicron. Some people have also used Primus, but he's somewhat smaller, so I guess it depends on which bots yer using for limbs.

    The truth is in my post though. I literally found your answer in less than 5 minutes using the resources available. That's why we work so hard to provide these things for you and the rest of Radicons. Just do your homework before ya post threads like this, k? :)  THEN if you have a question, feel more than free to ask.

    I hope to see what you and your offer in the future! :thumb

    Awesome. You'll find that Radicons are some of the coolest peeps on the planet. If you need help, there's always one around the corner :)

    sorry to reply yet again but that has been the theme of what i have been telling everyone i know, that this is the location for the radest people on earth, im thirty years old and have met lots of different people and groups but never a group of so many consistently cool in one place and that take care of each other like family, it gives me hope, the radicons should make a community like the Amish and prove that peace on earth is possible, we just have to figure out why people dont see what we see in transformers. thanks and God bless you and yours

    Awesome. We're glad you feel this way.

    If we all lived in one place, there'd be no cheeseburgers and fries for you all. :D  We do pretty well with how we interact as is though :)

    At the rate we're going, I won't be surprised to see a loose unicron going for a 1000 in a few years time! Lolz!!! Primus probably about there as well. Unless there is a reissue of course :)

    I certainly hope not. I'm pretty tired of seeing those same parts being used over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over . . .

    Combining the limbs themselves?

    Sometimes those limbs just don't cut it. Aesthetically speaking, (or is it typing) If I were to go the route and use the main guy's legs as the attachments points as opposed to unicron parts, I find myself looking for extra kibble to fill out some areas so the combiner doesn't have really thin thighs. If I’m going to use a bunch of kibble there, might as well use a Unicron/primus to solve the problem in one shot. Easy road? Of course. But I don't mind the look at all. To each their own I guess.

    I just prefer the combiners (except Devastator) to only have the fists, feet, and head parts. The reason Ptitvite designed Devastator using those parts originally is because the G1 Devastator utilized similar parts as well. I prefer just a small connector at most for the all of the limbs and having minimal kibble parts (unless those parts do something on their own). I still think REDLINE's Menasor is a good example of this :)

    People have used Primus' waist and legs, as well. I can only assume SW Darth Vader's business would be big enough to fit the bill too. Not sure if it's bulky enough in most people's view, though, which is why everyone turns to Unicron's parts.

    I used Primus' legs/waist in my devs...made mine taller than the norm...hehe.
    Mine stands 17 1/4 inches.
    Though I think I will make another using Unicron.
    I tried to combine the limbs themselves...just didn't work.
