    ***Update 6.08.09***
    Painted up and read to kick Skylinx's a$$...

    Thanks to all those who posted here with your excellent input that helped make this combiner even better than I could have hoped.

    ***Update 5.28.09***
    Need help - After considering Wan De Real's suggestion to lengthen the feet, I found that this made the torso look too short. So instead of increasing the length of the feet, I made up some new forearms to help balance out the gorilla like proportions. Should I keep the new forearms or go with the old?

    Thanks go out to ThyVipera for Ideas and Parts, Megacyber and YourReflection for ideas as well, the rest of the Radicons for inspiration, and the wife for going away for the weekend. It's sad to say but this guy took about 26 hours already which is well above what I thought it would take. 1 Unicron, 2 smokescreens, 3 sideswipes and a predaking KO was killed in the making of him so enjoy some pics and give some input. Note: Some pics may be old [I fixed some problems since I took them(i.e. long neck on razorclaw)]

    That looks bad ass Moe!

    May I ask where the hell did you find a KO predaking? I have been looking everywhere, just cause I don't wanna pay $500 for a real one.

    looking good moe. The one thing I am not digging is the "folded up robot arm" look for alt modes on a lot of them. I realize where that comes into factor, and think those big hollow predacon upper arms should have more than enough room to hold the arms inside. Loving that sword though....

    Thanks everyone for the kind words. He is a beast that's for sure.

    I'm a Huge fan of the Final Fantasy Series, I was looking to make a Cloud sword with a serrated edge on the other side...to try and keep with the heavy metal theme.

    It's funny because once you remove all the blocky legs, you are left with hollow bodies. I had to use wood to fill the voids on the insides so I could attach the arms and legs to something with substance. Maybe I'll use some of Divebomb's old arms to dress up the exposed ones.

    Thanks guys! Yeah, it's been a while since I started up. Been busy with work and such. The KO's actually came from ThyVipera. I don't blame you for not wanting to cut up the originals or the reissue...1) it's too much money and 2) It's easier to mod the plastic KO's than the half metal ones.
