Helex came in today from baba. Waiting on Tesarus to be restocked from ShowZ.
Wow. This guy is a chore to put together. Can’t say I’m likely to do that again any time soon.
Meanwhile I've already taken him apart and put him back together again multiple times. I love doing it.
And now that the Iron Factory Megatron got here as well. The set is now truly complete.
Selling off my IF DJD set for anyone interested: $220
I've called him Messatine, after the mining planet Megatron was exiled on, the one where shadowplay was attempted on him to curb his rebellious instincts.
It's also the place whose Nucleon was altered into superfuel that the DJD became hooked on (following Brainstorm time travelling in Elegant Chaos) which in my head helps power this monster.
The DJD were named after prominent Decepticon held cities too, so this combiner taking the name of a planet instrumental in the rise of the Decepticon order seems fitting.
Tarnation looks super cool on the shelf, but I never intended to display them in combined mode, but it took like three hours to put it together, and poor Helex basically had to explode and... do I not have enough time to play with toys because I'm working to pay for them?
Uh... I hope that's hyperbole. It's not THAT bad a transformation.
I took my time with the combo, laughing my tits off at just how amazing the engineering of Alkaid is and how many pieces he and Helex create. Really awesome stuff.
I'm a partsforming fan when it's executed well and this might be the pinnacle.
Yeah it's really ridiculous how great the bots are on their own but then partsform together seamlessly.
Agreed. I know people kick off about this kind of engineering as lazy but this is anything but. It's genuinely innovative and works perfectly here.
I just felt bad for poor Helex. He went into so many pieces. If he were a human man he would have had to put his genitals into three different pieces and stick them on his friends. Just sayin. Cuz you need the visual
Took apart Tarnation to display the guys in bot mode. Can't get Kaon's head back out with such limited clearance from his backpack.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
By the way, Tarnation must hold the record as most partsforming bot ever.
this pic makes me glad i never bothered to combine him. that does not look like a fun experience to me. i salute everyone here who made that journey.
You'll probably need a tool of some sort to flick it out. Next time transform him, make sure to turn the head around first. There's a tab on the back of his head that makes it easier to get it out.
