    Note: Top is recent, lower is earlier in the project.

    UPDATE!

    Decided to have classics/universe Hot rod as the other leg. I thought it fitting since Kup and Hot Rod actually are technically from the same series.

    What do you guys think I should do now?

    UPDATE!

    A few pictures of the team so far. Plus Thundercracker's Arm mode. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    UPDATE!
    Alright. I received the forearms and hands of Unicron in the mail the other day from Tobuttica here on TFW, and realized right away they were pretty LARGE. Luckily for me, I own a dremel, and I easily shortened the forearms. [​IMG] I would have Thundercracker with his forearm and hand in the pictures, but I accidentally left his combiner port at a friends house. Oh well. That means there will most likely be an update Monday or earlier.[​IMG]

    UPDATE! Here's a picture of how Kup looks like as a leg.
    [​IMG]

    About a month ago, I purchased an Energon Barricade for five dollars. And A few days ago I bought a P.R.I.D. Wheeljack. I don't know what motivated me, but I began modifying P.R.I.D. Wheeljack to fit as an arm onto Barricade, and I threw in Generations Thundercracker as another arm. I had to make something to fit into where the cockpit does in robot mode to connect to the combiner port out of styrene. You can see it in attachment 5. I modified Wheeljack's feet so the combiner port would fit. If anyone has some spare Unicron hands, I will pay for a pair. Also, who do you guys think I should use for the legs?

    EDIT:The legs will most likely be made from Cyclonus and Generations Kup, or PRID Bumblebee and Cliffjumper. Unless anyone has any better ideas. Also, if someone good with shapeways could make me a better connector for Thundercracker, I would be very grateful.

    I might be able to get my hands on Sergeant Kup if that's who you're talking about.

    Kup sounds like a good idea...
    Scourge... may be a bit of a problem due to height... Cyclonus?...
    You gonna try for articulation in the arms and legs?...

    I do already have Cyclonus... He might work. I'm gonna add a forearm piece for Wheeljack, and I'll just use Thundercracker's main leg joints and lower legs as a forearm for him.

    Okay, I have Kup as a leg, and he works perfect. But should I have PRiD Cliffjumper or Bumblebee as the other? Or does anyone else have any other suggestions?

    UPDATE! Here's a picture of how Kup looks like as a leg, and a rough design of how the left arm will look when finished.

    I'm pretty sure I have the Unicron Hands covered. In fact, I just sent Tobuttica the payment. Also, Minor setback on getting Cliffjumper. Does anyone think the left leg should be someone else?

    idk how it would line up with Kup length wise. But ive been looking at doing something like this and found that Warpath has a sweet leg mode that gives you some sweet added fire power
