    Snagged Wildrider/Brake-Neck off of eBay to go with Menasor. Can't wait to try my hand at the full Kre-O Scramble City style combination for my Stunticons.

    [cross-post from Radicons]

    hi there. recently got my hands on the lego ecto-1 kit. then i saw someone's ecto-1 transformer fan-art on deviantart. the result was this :)

    the bits that went into making this -

    1. lego ecto-1
    2. kreo prowl
    3. kreo bit bot (starscream or megatron, i forget which)
    4. kreo sentinel prime (head)
    4. other random kreo bits

    i am making a v2 that replaces the kreo joints for lego ratchets. i aim to make it shorter and give it more click :)  but i thought id share v1 with you guys before tearing him down a bit.

    thanks!

    KO

    I am shocked...SHOCKED, I tell you, that I haven't seen anybody showing off Kre-o Combiner Wars Optimus Prime or Megatron kitbashes in this thread...

    (I keep meaning to fiddle with one in my basement, but diapers...so many diapers...)

    Soo....made a quick spin past the tru near my vacay spot and found a full box of series 3 microchangers. A few for trade out of that, drawing, cheetor, long haul, and possibly nemesis. But it felt like a huge score at 1.39 a bag.

    Hasbro should play on the Combiner wars line and Release the new bots (Off-Road, Alpha Bravo, etc.) as one off (something like custom Kreons) with the necessary to make combiner limbs to add to your old combiner sets. There you go Hasbro, Free ideas.

    Use the generation line to drive interest towards Kre-o. We all know if you buy 4 Kreons you'll never stop.....

    For example (don't judge me I put this together in 2 seconds on my desk, took shitty pictures, and tried to make it Hasbro esq.):

    Exactly! Awesome!

    The rumor mill says that Ironhide, Mirage, Prowl, and Sunstreaker might end up as combiner limbs for Prime...want to give those a whirl, too?

    Found these at an import shop in a local mall:

    The printing is hit or miss, as Ironhide's helmet printing is fine, but his torso print is off. Starscream's print is flawless all through out.
