    Just Onslaught and Vortex in general. They're not as accurate as they could be but I like their sculpts.

    By the way, they don't come with the Bruticus parts. It's been known since release. Sorry you feel ripped off but they are really cool figures none the less.

    Just thought I'd share a new "arsenal drone" config I came up with...

    ..for when the combaticons are in botmode, but don't need to be armed to the teeth.


    And an obligatory group shot...

    Random question for anyone with this set (and apologies if previously answered): can the FP figures combine using the original energon weapons as hands / feet, rather than using all of the additional combiner parts?

    I realise it wont look as cool, but I'm interested in whether you can strip the set back to just the figures and a weapon each and still build a version of Bruticus.

    Does Explorer/Blastoff even have a combiner port?

    Cheers

    Very nice looking heads. How/where did you get those? Is that Onslaught one from RID?

    Munitioner can combine w/o add-on bits (though, I'm not sure if the Energon weapons will fit on him as a foot), but Explorer's port is in the missile pod.

    Onslaught is ROTF like the rest of the set.

    Soundwave3k makes the heads, but he's not making them anymore because the molds are spent I believe.
    He painted them to match the set exactly, TOP notch quality, looks exactly like the G1 cartoon.

    I think I found some new ways to configure the parts. New to me, anyway.

    It all started with my frustration with the missile pods. I like the look of the missile pods on the helicopter, but the joint is too loose, and the pods won't stay up! So I tried to look for an alternate way to use the pods.

    The missile pod (the one that connects the helicopter to Bruticus) fits just fine on Swindle. Just loop the hole through the peg in Swindle's gun, and it makes for a fairly convincing Humvee with a missile attachment.

    [​IMG]

    The other missile pod (the one that connects Blastoff to Bruticus) attaches just fine to Bruticus' foot in base mode. Doing this with the other missile pod runs into the same issue as pegging it into the helicopter (gravity pulls it down).

    [​IMG]

    And lastly, I was also kind of annoyed that Bruticus' hands had no clear place to go when Onslaught is in base mode. I like this configuration so much, I think I'll keep it this way even when Onslaught is in truck mode.

    And...voila! All parts are used!

    Random question, but I don't suppose anyone has a pair of the Takara United grey energon hands/feet/weapons that the Crossfire set replaces - specifically the two radar/guns that come with the tank mold - that they would be willing to sell/trade with me?

    Note - I'm based in the UK. Please do PM me if interested.
