    Update April 22nd 2016
    Heres some photos of the robot modes, and the vehicle modes as well!
    There is still alot of work to be done, so keep that in mind :wink: 

    Drillhorn - Used one of these Starscream Microns for the drill, and used the FoC TwinTwist weapon for the drill hands, along with some fodder here and there for the drill tank mode(Will be replacing the wheels with treads).

    Jallgura - Hes a bit taller now, since adding the combiner ports...but that really doesn't bother me. Giving him more a dune buggy kind of look to hime (Much like the TFC version). Need to find something to fill the hole in his gut.

    Killbison - ALOT! of work has been done on him, and still more, still need to find something to make his arms look bulker.
    He also is much taller now, added cw Mirage H/F/G to his feet, make him look like, well a tank(haha!)

    GuiHawk - Nothing done, kind of stumped on him, like what to change?

    Hellbat - He has one single tail fin now, i realize that you can see his arms now, but im okay with that :) 

    Leozack - Used an old Conehead head to make his jet mode less Cyclonus looking, still trying to figure out what to use for his veh. mode wings

    Afternoon all!

    So back when we were teased with box art of Liokaiser, i was both excited and very disappointed.
    The lack of a Jallguar, the fact that Leozack was out of the Skylynx mold, and the very underwhelming Drillhorn(That bugged me a lot!).

    So i started to breakdown what i needed to make a proper Liokaiser(Took some time to get my hands on the molds, much research to figure out mods and other things out). Watching the progress of Rotorsotm's Liokaiser threads really helped me a lot (Thanks Dude!) His ideas are where i got most of my ideas from (Brawl with the Energon Tank turrent).
    The difference between my Liokaiser, is that im basing most(3/6) of the characters off of the IDW MTMTE Breast force.
    Drillhorn, Killbison and Jallgura will have a bit of a MTMTE feeling to them(Will post individual photos at a later date).

    Please enjoy the photo(singular, DKM)!

    C&C Welcomed!

    Looking good, that's a nice start. Could we see individual bot pics and how did you manage to connect the torso?

    Like where this is going. How have you done the connection between Leozack and Jalguar? The one I worked on is so unstable I've had to scrap it and has put a bit of a downer on the project. Seeing this has helped me think about starting it up again. (possibly do Deathcobra to blow the cobwebs off), Plus if going IDW, we know that Hellbat is not with the rest of the Breastforce but Deathcobra is. Using Swindle's legs looks a lot more stable than using his arms. Have you mounted some CW ports at the bottom of his feet so that they are still hidden in the other modes?

    If you haven't done that I may just do :lol 

    Thanks for the props, if you want any help or any questions let me know :thumb

    This is pretty cool :)  I'm getting so many good ideas for my custom Liokasier. I just got my G2 Skydive in the mail today for Hellbat.

    Leozack and Jallgura are connected via Energon Combiner ports :D .
    Removed the CW port from Swindle, and put the female connector on him, and the male connector onto the flat end of Cyclonus cockpit(Where it separates). But that so far is theory, as im waiting on the male connector part....but! im 100% sure it will work.
    I should have explained more, by MTMTE-ish i mean the style of their bodies, not so much team wise haha, but DeathCobra is in the works....just not much has been done yet.

    As for the connector ports on Jallgura, i removed the pivot joint from swindle, and just epoxied the ports onto the feet, so hes a bit taller than he was before, but i can live with that.
    I'll be reworking the ports to make it look the the front of a dunebuggy.



    Thanks guys!

    Please feel free to use anything you see on your version :D 
    At least they have a purpose now haha

    Thank you! :D

    The way the torso is constructed made me almost faint in its glory.

    Lovely, just lovely. Disappointment at what Hasbro gives us really brings out the inventiveness in customizers!
    Love all that's going on here, except maybe for the one using CW Brawl as a base. I'd get rid of Brawl's turret entirely, as it makes the rest of the addtions look tacked on. Other than that; can't wait to see the progression!
