    I present to you all my mostly finished Headmaster juniors monsterbots!

    I kind of thought of them as each having their own disticnt specialty Within their group. So we have fangry the flyer, terribull the heavy weapons and squeezeplay the grappler

    Thanks a lot! Would you believe that the only figures I bought specifically for this project where an old squeezeplay and a Titans returns Krok?

    Thanks alot! Squeezeplay ise definitely my favorite to, he started this whole journey of mine. I'm super surprised at how that fangry turned out the engineering was a b**** figure out

    They look very cool so far :thumbs2: :thumbs2: :thumbs2: 
    I hope you are good at painting :D 
    And do you have a TR Terri-Bull? I really like Hardhead's big cannon on his back btw. Nice addition. The only nit-pick I have for him are the horns: they just look too dull and lack detail. They could be a bit edgier. Do you have an AoE or TLK Slug lying around? :p 

    I am really looking forward to see those done.
    Just one last thing: are their cockpits still functional?

    Now that I had a second (OK, more like 5th :p ) look at Squeezeplay I notice the nifty rotating assembly of his backpack for transformation.
    I need way more likes for this thing :thumb

    I really feel like the rotating backpack was my stroke of Genius with squeezeplay, gives him an articulated head that separated from the articulation in his shoulders will still giving him a very crab like look. It's attached with a magnet instead of a post to get it a little bit more Dynamic movement. I really wish that there was some way for me to show exactly how to articulated it is in it's monster form

    I'll be picking up a Titans return terrible head soon enough, and yes all of the cockpits are fully functional, although squeeze plays is pretty small at this point.

    And all of terribulls kibble or from a G1 tantrum so I think I will be keeping the horns, although I will be probably repositioning them as I trim down his snout. It's basically the last thing I need to do before I start permanently gluing and painting

    That's some swanky engineering right there. Looking forward to the finished product.

    As you are speaking of magnets: I like the position of Squeezeplay's Decepticon symbol he has from Wolfwire right now. But it's upside down in beast mode. How about a rotating insignia in that spot? I think a magnet and some metal in the opposite part would work perfectly for that.
    Or do you have other plans for the presentation of his faction affiliation?

    That's actually a really good idea! And as for factions I recently picked up Ultra class Predaking and I've upgraded my Alpha Trion into a Decepticon with massive wings as well so I'm thinking about making a Predacon faction with all of the other Beastformers
    Seriously! I'm pretty sure that has bro was going to make these guys but couldn't figure out how to make proper squeezeplay. grotusque was basically simple swap over to fangry, I got super vibes from Krok for Terri bull, and I'm pretty sure they used the leftover engineering from squeezeplay to make blot. I mean look at that robot crotch, the similarity was completely unintentional on my part. that's just how the molding was for bLots shoulders and I only used blot because it had the joints that I wanted

    Which Ultra class Predaking? Do you mean Ultimate class Predaking from TF Prime Beast Hunters? And I really wanna see that Alpha trion now!

    As so many people turned the Skullsmasher mold into Horri-Bull it's pretty obvious. HasTak could (have) definitely do(ne) that. And for Squeezeplay I was thinking about either Blot or TR Deluxe class Repugnus. Both lack the beast mode arms becoming the robot's legs but they are still really good base molds for the character. I hope we will get the three you are making here in the WfC trilogy. Otherwise I'll either turn my AoE Slug OR him plus TR Skullsmasher into Horri-Bull.
