    I had Thunder Mayhem down so that I could take pics of all of my Spinisters the other day, so I figured I might as well get a pic of the ugly bugger. Other than the shallow combined head I love this set. 820913F8-3EF2-46C9-9550-526DF82ABB1D.jpeg

    I dislike how oversized the PE Bruticus rifles are; I feel they're only good as his back cannons. The TDW Abominus kit got the sizing right for a combiner gun IMHO, as do yours.

    Nice job, design-wise and especially the trigger finger integration :thumb

    We didn't get any upgrade kits specifically for Thunder Mayhem, right?

    No.

    I don’t have $5-600 for TM. That’s a lot of working the corner. Lol.

    I don't think so. At least not that I've seen.

    So my CBB CW Defensor Red from Sirtoys has gone form shipped in China to USPS "pre-shipment" so looking like it may not be too much longer...

    Thanks!

    Yeah I'm surprised none of the combiner weapons out there have really attempted to integrate a trigger at all, so I wanted to give it a shot on this design. It necessitates making a different gun for each hand but that's not a big deal. I think ultimately I'll offer a left & right set for PE hands and triggerless version compatible with the stock hands.

    I was doubly surprised there's not really anything on the market for this. I have the C+ Customs kit but decided it made Defensor too big and out of line with the other scramble combiners so I took it off. I love the guns that come with that kit but they are gigantic. I had him holding just one of them for a while but I wanted him dual-wielding, so I set out to make something smaller for him. The design of these is sort of a combination of the G1 guns and the C+ guns.

    I just need to adjust the sizing/fit of a couple things on here and add a bit more detailing, and these things will be ready to roll!
