    Seriously.

    Energon Prime has to have *something* to eat, to keep his bloated figure.

    This is a really cool idea, man! Color me excited :) 

    Me too, but then I realized that I've been watching Iron Man essentially nonstop since Friday. :lol 

    Come to think of it, if one of us ever had a movie night, the other would probably never leave since we watch most of the same stuff, I've realized :lol 

    Mmm . . . doughnuts! I want some!

    Slag on you, StarFire! Now I'm hungry . . . . *runs to get a snack for real*

    thanks for all the comments everyone. i'm glad you guys seem to like the idea. i'm really excited about working on this. ever since i saw ptitvite's devastator, i always wanted to do my own, but i didnt want to copy anyone's. i thought about this idea and i thought it would be something really cool to do and hopefully stand out.

    i'll be updating in the next day or 2. i'm still waiting on ball joints from japan and i ordered 100 small magnets today, and some recorder modules, which will be used for sounds and phrases such as "prepare for devastation". lol, i'm really excited about this, and i'm looking forward to updating and sharing the project with everyone.

    Unicron in an alternate universe where instead of a planet hungry monster he's just a measly Wii-mote?

    as of right now, it's going to stay as a wood piece. i'm going to cover it up with gundam kibble and give it some detail. i couldnt really think of another way to attach hook and longhaul, so i figured i would just make a piece to connect both figures.

    Well whatever works, right. I think there is a challenge to it like wood would rot or something are you going to use some sort of protection so that it doesn't rot away.

    i'm thinking it will be fine, hopefully it will lol. it will be painted with enamel paints, so that should protect it pretty good.

    I find this awesome trucks at maxway that looked perfect. I have a pic of them somewhere. I'll upload them to the thread.

    yourreflection: he's the same long haul that came with the RID buildteam. I thought of using demolisher but I wound up going with him.

    I've started painting a little, I'm going to post a couple of pics a little later and see if I can get some input.

    I used a similar shade of green for my version of Devastator. I really like your coloring, especially the silver parts. Personally, I'm not big on the purple though - it's a bit pastel, maybe a darker tone would look nice. What matters is what you like though.

    great job on this.
