    Basically, i did some modding to an Animated Bumblebee figure, to allow it to split in half as you please. Just need to add a magnet now.

    The splitting in half thing is to allow for combination. Now, i'm sorry, but Landcross is a bit too difficult for my skill (or lack thereof :D ). But, at least once i finish another multiforce member, they'll be able to combine into their 2-'bot gestalt.

    Too bad the stores round my area have had Bumblebee once, and never again, so this may be a long term project. :( 

    So far, i've only got Tackle started:

    cool project. I think you should add SOME sort of paint detail, maybe on the chest? just a little something to break things up a tad. There's already one repaint of BB out there, and there's another one on the way I think, that you ought to be able to find one sometime.

    This is a LOC Bumblebee. Don't know of any repaints of the LOC fig. Deluxe has had two repaints, though.

    I'm still thinking on how to add detail. I don't want to paint the siren, as i'd prefer it to be less cop-ish. Might panel line it, dunno yet. Seggestions welcome (and desperately wanted). :)

    Well this is a pretty cool project going on :D 
    why not try using something different then magents?
    i mean if your going to keep this in your collection why not try something different to connect them(magnets will lose there strength after..idn how long lol)
    but if you dont i still like where this is going! :D 
    Who are you going to use for the rest of them?

    BB repaints so far:

    Deluxe:
    Elite Guard BB
    Cybertron (G-1ish Cybertron vehicle mode add-on) retool BB

    Activators:
    Police Patrol BB
    Cliffjumper

    Incase you decide on a bigger scale. Looks interesting to say the least.

    ahh my bad, I thought it was an activator. I'd just paint up the arm details and maybe something on the chest. Can do that without impacting the car mode at all.

    Ideas on Landcross

    So far, i've got his arms and upper body sorted, but i'm unsure how i'm gonna attach the head. The legs, i'm working on that.

    And for those that think that i'm gonna use different molds for each Multiforce member, sorry. All Bumblebees, to facilitate the combination (both 2 bot and Landcross modes). :eek: 

    Here's a shot using Tackle and Bumblebee to represnt how the arm and main body work. Just reverse for the other arm.

    Pic 1 is the front view, Pic 2 the top view, illustrating the joint. Sorry, new camera today, getting used to it still.

    Tackle V2

    Just some extra detail work. Still getting used to the camera, so the gold shows up badly, but you get the idea.

    The magnet's also done, and the hole filled in.

    Found them! All 5!

    Sheesh, it's been a long timece i've updated this thread. Sorry, everyone.

    However, i've sort of completed two more Multiforce members, Wing and Tacker. Just a bit of yellow poking through, which will have to be fixed.

    I'll post the combined forms (all 6) tomorrow. I need some sleep... *yawn*

    Looking forward to it. Was wondering if you used Bumblebee for all 6 'bots.

    Yeah, all 6 will be Bumblebee. Otherwise, the interchangeable aspect of the figures would be lost.

    Thanks!

    Sorry for the delay, everyone. Haven't been feeling too well recently...

    Well, here's what i have for the combined modes so far. Hope you like it.

    Still working on some sort of backstory for these guys...Probably something along the lines of "Project: Landcross. The Elite Guard ventures into combiner technology after the success of Project: Safeguard" or something like that.

    But anyway, Dash is varnished, alt mode pics will come tomorrow, once everything cures fully. For now, bot mode:
