    I have commission many devastators but this is special because it will be my last custom devastator.It's been a long journey working and creating custom all these years. I still remember vividly how I did my first devastator and although it wasn't the best but it was being accepted by most of the TF Fans out there. There weren't any 3rd party stuff at that time, creativity were wild and fresh.3rd party Prints were everywhere now.Collecting unique TF pieces has gone from custom to 3rd party prints.It seems that SUPPLY is more than DEMAND. What I'm trying to do is to create something call art piece not toys which any great 3rd party prints can replace.I HAVE STOP TAKING IN COMMISSION. Doesn't mean I will stop custom work. Still I will create custom within my specs and interest.
    Thank you for the support all along!!

    Your work compared to the 3rd party verses the new Hasbro stuff..
    I'd take your work over there's any day... Your customs are works of art.. not toys..

    As a custom it's pretty damn good. But as a combiner I feel like it's less a gestalt and more a bunch of vehicles attached by robot pieces. If you just had the Constructicons they wouldn't be able to combine in any way. The Unicron hips clash with the blocky, geometric bodyparts, and the head's really simplified and a bit oversized. Especially compared to the super-detailed Primus forearms. It's a good head sculpt, just it clashes with the detail everywhere else.

    The individual Constructicons are great, though. And the paint job is top notch.

    I hear what you are saying with the 3rd party stuff,but there is something to be said for one's creative twist to a project that truly does make it artwork. Good job here.

    Yes I do agree but sometimes we have to keep things as simple as possible.

    ThANKS ! BTW NEVER BEATS ONE OF A KIND CUSTOM WHICH YOU DIY YOURSELF.
    THANKS, APPRECIATE YOUR EXCELLENCY
