    Just wanted to ask what the harm is in "crossbreeding" a combiner. I know it should be up to the artist to determine the final outcome of their project and if it meets their satisfaction.

    So the question is, would it be so bad if a combiner consisted of Movieverse as well as Energon, Armada, R.i.D, Universe ect. Or Should it be kept in the family?


    Please sound off I would like hear from you!

    As long as you match aesthetics, I think you're fine. :thumb

    I'd like to see a combiner that's a mix of different lines and aesthetics.

    Classics, BW, Animated, and ROTF/TF2007.

    Like SQ said, it's all about the aesthetics. As long as they all look like they'd be from the same TF universe, it should be fine. For example, Animated Blur wouldn't look right on a more classics stye combiner. Where as, Animated Swindle fits right in with a quick head swap. I hope this makes sense, I just woke up...

    As "artists", why should we limit ourselves from the standpoint of aesthetics? I think it'd be refreshing to see a combiner made from various TF universes.

    I guess what I'm thinking of would be a dev. As we all know we are kind of getting screwed in the movieverse, I was going to attempt using the reissue mudflap as hook and place him as the shoulders over RotF long haul, RotF Mixmaster as the left leg and fill in the rest as necessary. Bot mods really aren't that important to me as he will primarily be Devastator.

    Uh, Re-issue Mudflap? Do you mean the TRU Movie 1 Mudflap decoed like G1 Erector? I know for most Devestators people use that mold (Cybertron Mudflap) for hook, but those Devestators are also more along the lines of "classics" or something to that nature.

    I'd say its all up to your vision. Me, if i did "cross breed" a combiner, I would do additional mods to make them all look as if they are from the same "Universe" but that's just me. Good Luck, bro. :thumb
