    Nice work. Looks like someone is getting ready for the Transformers KREON Warriors ;)

    Played around with Darkshift's camera build to make a Reflector, ended up with something quite different:

    I may try for something smaller as it's a bit clunky to hold, but I do like the "tripod turret" mode.

    And a Squeezeplay:

    Perhaps one of the orange Predacon heads? Maybe even go so far as to scrape off the mouth.

    So I put together 3 of the 4 Battle Changers today . Starscream is my favorite. Sturdy and and convincing. Optimus is fun to transform but incredibly frustrating, parts keep coming off all the time (front and side panels). Bumblebee is sturdy but ugly. Could'nt find Grimlock, so that one will have to wait a bit. I ended up modding all 3, they look better now. I'll post pictures shortly.

    Optimus: I tried to close up the cab better. Didn't like the long red chest plate in robot mode, so I made it shorter.

    Bumblebee: pretty much completely redesigned the car.

    Starscream: made the rear end sleeker, and designed completely new feet (ankle tilt, sorta!) since I didn't like his tube feets.

    Do Optimus and Bumblebee have normal Kreon torsos? I'm wondering what their chest printings are if they have them.

    Yes, normal torsos. Optimus is all red since he wears 2 jackets at the same time (front + rear), same deal with Bumblebee. Only Starscream's is printed.

    Decided to make the grill longer and make the bumper sticking out a bit.

    Longer stacks (borrowed from Elite Optimus)

    Shortened a bit for clearance in robot mode

    They really kinda need the double-torso construction used on the combiners. I finally got the Galvatron Factory Battle set and I felt the same way with the super Galvatron build... he just really needs and extra torso to make his body less stupidly small.

    (Otherwise, he's super neat.)

    Nah, the chibi look is perfect.

    Had to superglue some of the parts; even with the original build, some pieces kept popping off, really annoying.

    Trailer coming soon...

    Thats debatable, as I think the double torso construction on the combiners isn't sufficient. Hence why I made my Superion a triple torso once I'd got Quickslinger.

    I need some way to incorperate the parts from Quickslinger, so the triple torso was a case of try it out to see if works. I'm quite please with it, although it did mean I spent an hour rebuilding Superions upper body to accomodate said extra parts.
    Can't wait to get Bruticus to try an upgrade with Blast Off. Devastator's gonna be a swine to do with 2 extra figures instead of 1 though!

    Found Battle Changer Grimlock today, I'll build him this afternoon and see if there's room for customization. Also got an extra BB to further customize the first set I got.

    I fixed / updated my Horri-Bull and Fangry. I made a Waverider like mechajol and made my own Hardhead.

    I'm thinking I might build a Decepticon ship as well -- but not have it be a piece of my Space Bridge. Because the Ark has to be part of the Space Bridge it's got a very compromised shape and profile. So... well... I'd like to be able to build something more detailed, to show my chops when it comes to model building.

    (Maybe the Nemesis from Transformers Prime... or the Predacon ship from Beast Wars? I dunno.)
