    New Decepticon character (arguably a Ravager), hope you enjoy:

    The paintwork is really impressive. I like the bot mode. Not a fan of wheel feet but this is cool. I think the one thing thats pestering me is the lack of articulation in the arms. Is that just the limitation of the mold you chose or just posing selection?

    By the way. I freaking LOVE the alt mode. I dont think that there are too many "Cybertronian" vehicles that I like. Most look too fat, dumpy, or have more lights and crap attached than a ricer convention in Japan. That thing looks like it was born on an alien world to obliterate terrain.

    That's pretty cool. It's like a classics style ROTF Demolisher,

    Nice paint work and alt mode. Not sure on the bot mode tbh... if it could've split to a set of more articulate arms/legs it'd be simply awesome. Still very creative. It's a curious fusion of the Armada Demolisher and Cybertron Metroplex figures. It is a great concept though. Really.

    Thanks
    Thanks mate. The limited articulation in the arms in due to the the sacrificed mold (armada scavenger). I mean it is not too bad, very "brutish", but I could see having more, especially since he has no articulation in his lower body (I did compensate a bit by using a very articulate excavating arm, as it does also act as a tail of sorts in his bot mold (I feel the addition of a tail-like structure also adds to his monstrous appearance) .

    Thanks Mate! My team of Ravagers were created by me to be as alien (yet recognizable) as possible while still realizing they have a function.

    Oh that's a great idea! thanks!

    thanks.

    :)  thanks mate!

    :D 

    thanks mate, much appreciated.

    Thanks! I guess I can do messy, but believe me I cannot do the stuff that the master's of this board can really churn out...I mean come on guys like lhandlott, Spurt, Cheetimus, FrenzyRumble, Jinn Satomi, JoeySantana, Rodimeister, SonOfNemesis, FrogDNA, Solrac333, Shinobitron, and so many others who are by far my superior, in customs and paint skill.

    Thanks mate...I did not want legs proper on him, but some hip/thigh articulation would have been perfect for me in a similar fashion as Thrust from Beast Machines.

    Thanks mate, means a lot.

    Yeah, your paint is really good. I'm not a fan of the lack of feet but the general look of this guy I like. I'm always a fan of original characters.

    Good job man.

    Thanks mate...I can see where you are coming from, but I have always liked the more bizarre looking ideas, it is weird, but it works. :)

    This could easily have been a ROTF Demolisher. Really like the design. He looks somewhat limited in articulation though...

    i love deciphering what was used where like the energon omega,or energon mirage,etc.nice mix of different parts/lines!!you made it all flow nicely together!!

    does he still have functional electronic sounds like the engine or the rolling/crushing/stomping sounds?

    Thanks!
    Thanks mate!, he is somewhat limited, but not as bad as you would think...and as I mentioned earlier, that excavator bucket/shovel "tail" adds a lot to his articulation

    Thanks Chansformers! I used parts from no less than 5 figs; Obviously Armada Scavenger for the body, and yes on Energon Omega's mini head, and Energon Mirage's wing launchers (which still work). I also used the dump truck bucket from a spare RID Build King, Heavy Load, and Cybertron Metroplex's excavating bucket/shovel. Lastly I tossed on some Tau tank engines from Warhammer 40K.
    Oh and yes the electronics still run :)
