    I originally started this project about five years ago. This is my third version lol. I have worked on Bonecrusher, Mixmaster (who is still missing his mixing drum atm), Scavenger and Hook. I still have quite a bit of work to do to these guys not to mention get around to Scrapper and Long Haul. You can see the previous work on these guys and my present work. Please all comments and critics are welcome, as I'm seeking a lot of feedback on these guys! Thanks for looking everyone!

    Here's the BEFORE alt modes

    Combination?

    If they're all leader class, I can't WAIT to see how big they become when they combine....

    Me too! The previous version was about 33" tall. Here's a pic.

    I'm not sure what your intention was, so I'm not sure how to give feedback.

    A triple-changer is pretty challenging though, and even the best designers have to compromise a lot.

    From your previous version's gestalt mode, I'd suggest you get acquainted with human anatomy so you can decide in what way and how much to differ from it when making a robot. Certain measurements can be exaggerated to suggest different strengths.

    Some people like to be show-accurate, which doesn't always translate well into a toy that can transform without part-forming or having extra left-over unused parts. For some people they desire it enough that those side-effects don't bother them. Other people like to stick to product realism and try to reduce those previously mentioned side-effects.

    I am somewhat familiar with human anatomy, as I studied Exercise Physiology while in college lol. As for your statement, I am just seeking feedback about my present custom work. Whether you think it's looking nice and heading in a potentially good direction or a flaming ball of SHI* lol. I simply would like your opinion. Thanks so much for looking and commenting though. I really appreciate it!

    Yay your building/ working again! I love your work, I happen to think this newer build looks good. I love how you have constructed/ designed who I assume is Mixmaster? Love it my friend, just love it.

    Thanks so much for the compliments my friend. I'm glad you are enjoying the build so far. There is still a lot to do with these guys. Scrapper is giving me a major headache. I've gone from the previous version thru plan A, plan B and now I'm trying to workout plan C lol! Thanks for looking though. I hope to see some of your stuff soon also.

    UPDATE: 04/07/15

    I made some progress on bone crusher and found him a head. Also I attached his hands. Long haul has started to come together. His alt mode still leaves a lot to be desired but he is still early in his construction. He is also my attempt at an articulated dump truck. Again all C&C welcome.
