    BATTLE CHANGER PROJECT STATUS UPDATE:
    Just got my Micro-Changer of Lugnut today, so once I get another Shockwave, I can get to work on a Lugnut Battle Changer.

    In other news, I got robbed of a chance to begin work on the Hot Rod Battle Changer when a conveniently low-priced BC Bumblebee was sold to someone else. I got Waspinator, thus completing my main roster of Predacons, so now I have to finish working on the Maximals, such as Rattrap, Depth Charge, and maybe Airazor or Silverbolt. Other Predacons that I might consider getting include Rampage or Quickstrike. Furthermore, I finished painting the head to a Battle Changer of Sentinel Prime, so now all I need is the proper BC and the right parts; I'd say I'd need a BC Grimlock to get to work on Sentinel. Other plans for the future is that I've been trying to see if I can make a BC of Octane/Fuselage, just to complete the set of Triple Changers. I'm also getting ready to finish up the Autobot Roster with Windblade, which will definitely be a great way to finish the Autobots.

    Still to do:
    - Make/Buy Devastator

    I was scrolling through your photos thinking "Hey, this is a pretty good custom."

    Then I got to the last photo, saw the wording on the instructions and the clearly bootleg baggies the pieces came in and I'm waiting for your troll face.

    In other news, another update on the BC project. I got my hands on the RID Size-Up Custom figures for Sideswipe. So, when I began looking at the pieces in intricate depth, I decided to make something cool of it.

    Get ready for a BC of the most popular female Transformer of today!
    So excited to be making her, btw. I only have six Battle Changers of Female Transformers, and I'd like that to change. So this should be a welcome addition.
    The head will be the hardest part, though. Tresob is giving me a custom helmet, but I'm not sure what I can do to make her face. I've thought about getting another Arcee head, but I'm not quite sure because of its cost. Is anyone willing to trade their Arcee head for something?

    lol The pictures ended up uploading in reverse order.

    Funnily enough, there are no instructions for the 6 other alternate builds. But that's fine with me, they suck and don't transform.

    Unless these are a new run with slight changes to the originals, Megatron and Ironhide, along with Shockwave and Grimlock (with updated cross sells to include Megatron and Ironhide), were available in July 2017.

    Seems odd that they'd add these to their catalog just recently; maybe they're just doing some housecleaning.

    Hmm, interesting. I have the Shockwave and Grimlock, but don’t recall seeing that version of Megatron and Ironhide before!

    We don’t have discount stores here (which is why there are a lot of ‘warehouse sales’).

    Got a new custom Battle Changer for all o' youse. It's an unexpected one to say the least.

    I'm super proud of this one. Oil Slick has to be one of the most slender characters from the entire Animated lineup, and somehow I managed to capture that perfectly; right down to the face and his Cybertronian Motorbike mode. Those Custom Kre-O RID Armor-Up figures REALLY helped me out on this one, just as they did with making Battle Changer Windblade.

    So I just discovered this thing that someone else made.

    Was this on the forum before? If not, it's so cool.

    Here's three more customs for y'all to chew on.
    Battle Changer Wreck-Gar
    IMG_0226.JPG IMG_0229.JPG IMG_0232.JPG IMG_0238.JPG IMG_0239.JPG
    Battle Changer Blurr
    IMG_0242 2.JPG IMG_0243.JPG
    Battle Changer Tailgate
    IMG_0246.JPG IMG_0247 2.JPG

    With that, I'm almost done collecting/making all of the Autobots. The last one left is Wheelie. After that, it'll be full steam ahead to finish the Decepticons. Here's what I've got so far.

    Thank you.

    But regarding this final stretch, I've begun working on my plans for Devastator, but I wouldn't expect an original creation. I've been checking out a guy (RatBat 1986) who's making small BC scale Constructicons with the intention of combining them. I intend to build his Devastator.

    But the other cons, like Octane, Sixshot, or Sentinel Prime, are gonna be my own creation.
