    So despite Victory Saber funding, I still don't trust Hasbro to dive too deep into Victory as a whole and can see them dragging their feet on a few characters, so I'll fill em in til they prove me wrong.

    On the list are
    Landcross
    Dinoking
    Galaxy Shuttle
    Countdown
    Fixit and Seawatch
    Monstructor (I know he's not in Victory but I do lump him in since he's American Dinoking)

    So up first is Galaxy Shuttle but somewhat reimagined.

    As he is now a Trinity force style combiner. IMG_20211015_145949212_PORTRAIT.jpg

    The main reason for the change up was to get him to Commander/combiner height without having to completely re-shell a Jetfire.

    His components are
    Skylynx's younger brother...Shuttle (going through a goth phase)

    Fixit
    IMG_20211015_144833976_PORTRAIT.jpg

    And IDW transplant Ambulon

    Here's some altmode shots

    IMG_20211015_152656710_PORTRAIT.jpg

    Originally I considered having twin fixits with one being Fixit and the other as Pipo but I decided to be a dork and make the other leg Ambulon since he turns into a leg and has the medic look.

    Seawatch and Countdown will also be CW molds that could serve as limbs but they wouldn't create the symmetry I want so they'll just hang around and carry the arms in some way.

    Up next is the start of the Multiforce.

    These guys are definitely inspired by Srednams rendition so I wanna give him some credit for that.

    Updates soon.

    I bought the Knock off Rachet and Sunstreaker for the same purpose of making Fixit. And then I didn't.

    I like what you've done with Galaxy Shuttle. Making him function like Road Caesar instead of just some random big guy is very creative. Landcross is cool too. Trying to get all of the functionality of the original would be a nightmare. If I had to do I would probably use a three man combiner and just omit the 6 smaller robots. In Victory they were almost always combined in twos anyways. That's just me though. Good work so far!

    For now I'm intending to do Landcross as a 6 man combiner, but I'm also trying to figure out how to make Wingwaver, Machtackle and Dashtacker as duobots that would stand alone without a Landcross mode. To make them have all their proper engineering I'd probably need a 3d printer and a few years experience.

    Update:

    Small addition to Fixit, an orange drill as an homage to his RID version

    And a WIP of Dinoking.

    For the Dinoforce I decided to blend the innerbots and shells together in the style of Bludgeon to make an amalgamated version. I'm considering getting some battle masters to paint up as the innerbots and have them ride the bigger guys in altmode, but that's further down the line.
    I took some liberties in his configuration, with the torso bot being the Ankylosaurus and the T-Rex being downsized to a raptor that attaches to the stegosaurus. Still working the kinks out on him but his combined mode is fairly set. Altmodes and bot modes soon.

    If you need anything modelled and printed I’d be happy to help, I could model and print for free as I’m currently about to start a 6 man land cross, I live in Australia so you might have to pay shipping or I could send files and you figure out printing? Looks amazing so far!

    At the moment, my prevailing idea would be to use Skytread and Battletrap as the bases and try and do a simple re-shell, forgoing the individual bot modes and focusing on alt modes and combined bot mode. I'm going to treat them as seperate characters from the smaller 6 in my personal head canon I think.

    A couple touch ups from where paint scratched during handling and filling in eyes and other details and that should be it for Dinoking. I'll eventually pick up some spare Battlemasters to add on as riders.

    More updates soon

    Using Snaptrap, respect, I wouldn't be able to do that lol. everything looks good so far. I would probably use the POTP hands as chariots and use titan masters to represent the riders.

    Oh believe me I tried as hard as I could to make a Gun gurrr work instead but ended up with Snaptrap as the best option.

    Update:

    Landcross is basically done. Just gotta paint some windows and fins, scrub some police logos off of Dash, and figure out some extra bits for Waver's alt mode.

    Here he is using Waver as a Target master a la Piranhacon.
