    Love this! The candid shots on the couch and toilet had me rolling! He is MASSIVE! Throw a remote in his other hand in that couch pic!

    The shots that TRULY put this creative masterpiece in perspective were the ones on the toilet. Toys used for scale are one thing. Not everybody has those figures. Couches are one thing- no idea the size of the couch. But a TOILET is practically universal. EVERYONE has one. And they're all around the same exact size. As silly as those pix were, they were the most important pix in the gallery to really hit home how huge he is! Excellent work!

    Didn't see in the description but are there individual vehicle modes of any kind?

    Hey man, This is truly awesome. If I was your neighbor, I would attempt to get you to let me help you take it to the local park and get pics of him on the seesaw or maybe a bouncy horse.lol Now for a minor nitpick.... Scavengers tracks are on upside down. Totally minor but, for my OCD, it was the first thing I noticed. Like I said, again sorry.lol

    Thanks guys I appreciate you taking the time to comment. :) 

    Thanks! I also considered pics of him enjoying a family dinner with us. :D 

    As for vehicle modes, not really. Scavenger and Bonecrusher could be put back to vehicle mode, though, if I unbolt the shoulder joint from them and pop the forearms off.

    Do not have. Maybe someday, if TW includes the updated parts with their green v2 Constructor, I'll have that big boy for Bruderstator to pick on.

    Thanks! Those are some fun ideas for sure. Having help with set up and ideas would be awesome! I considered putting him on a raft in the pool, but that's WAY too big of a risk. I've tried to think of fun public pics, but they may've been better received in the 80's, lol.

    As for Scavengers upside down treads, yeah, I know. It was kind of necessary for mounting purposes and for getting the shoulder joint to work around them. I was wondering if a construction equipment pro would notice. :D

    I can just imagine a guest that needs to use the bathroom, only do open the door to devastator on the toilet. Would be a funny prank. Anyways, thats awesome!

    Thanks guys, for the very flattering words. :) 

    I did that to my wife. I left him in the "someones in here!" pose until she came home from work. I waited hours for her to finally use the restroom!

    Adult parties, yes. Destructive child parties, no way in hell. :lol
