    Very nice progress! I still haven't picked up any Wingfingers myself... My pile of loot is starting to consume its accretion disc, but I really want to wait for Probus before I ship it, lol.

    So a while back I glued Ractonites frill and now that I'm fooling around with the fossilizer combiner, I'm wondering if that was a bad idea. I hope noe

    I’ve been avoiding all the deluxe and voyager fossilizers because as much as I love dinosaurs I had nowhere to put them, but I finally caved and just ordered transmutate to go with my beast wars cast, I’m afraid this will awaken something within me

    I'm on the fence about Transmutate. It's tempting to get her but at the same time she's not my fav character but at the same time dinosaurs :D

    Just remember. After you begin to Fossilize... if you hear a quiet voice asking you questions in the dark, don't answer them under any circumstances... And if it makes you a deal or a promise, you must pretend not to hear it no matter what!

    (In the Destiny game series, there's an extinct species of dragons called Ahamkara who shapeshifted and granted wishes. Their bones still contain some sentience and a corrupting presence, and when they whisper to characters who turned their bones into weapons or armor or who keep them as trophies, they always say a variation of the phrase "O Bearer Mine" and I can't believe I'm just now seeing a similarity in fossilizers and ahamkara lol!)

    I grabbed a Paleotrex this morning to combine with Selects Transmutate to attempt a more "show accurate" appearance by using both figures' parts.

    Here is my attempt!

    Man, I made some of the designs y’all suggested, but Grimlock does not approve.

    Merged Paleotrex, Wingfinger and Ractonite into the combiner form. The Wingfinger fist holes are kind of loose, so the arms in combined mode aren't as solid as they should be on my copy. The right arm can't support it's own weight, but I can get the left to at least pose with a bone sword.

    Reason I'm posting here is that I think the official combined mode looks SO much better if you swap the legs which will let you rotate the upper thigh so the "rib" detail is facing front. This puts that big femur bone in the back and out of sight where I chose to slot in the Wingfinger wing tips which you can then angle against the back and provide some extra stability.

    20210731_104515.jpg

    I think this looks much more cohesive. The default big femur bones of the upper thighs didn't look right. They kind of stuck out and amplified the weakness of the "parts" combined mode, and now they're out of sight. I put Wingfinger's dino head on the back where it feels it belongs, and then used the remaining pieces as weapons. The Ractonite pelvis gun/spear and a Paleotrex spinal sword.

    So, I found these fossilizer combiner instructions online. They seem to be the closest to what was shown in the livestream, including the Paleotrex tail part attached behind the head, and the Wingfinger pterosaur head as a tail. Of course, there's no true official configuration, and I had to modify mine due to the pegs on Paleotrex's arms not fitting in the ports on Wingfinger's hands (the opposite of the loose connection most people seem to have)
