    Fortress Maximus Handle Adapter by williamson_joseph on Shapeways

    Shapeways for the adapter. Guy did a great job on it. Fits on both the standard hands and the custom set by Megamoonman. I did need a 5mm peg to connect the adapter to the 5mm hole in Broadside.

    Minor/Repaint: - Metro...Maximus?

    Shameless plug for my own custom Fort Max showing the adapter in use (first post). I could've re-taken pics of 'Plex holding Broadside with the adapters more visible (I could've swore I did when I went through the camera) but...shameless plug for my custom. :)

    Does this still count as a fan-mode? I'm using customized add-on parts, but it's how I have mine set up.

    Combiner Wars HFG parts as new feet for Generations Skids. I wanted him taller for TR Nautica and this was how I went about it.

    There's really no other way to store them in alt mode, but it's always robot mode that takes the priority for me.

    As someone who loved that figure but hated his feet and somewhat wonky proportions, I love this. Looks so much better.

    I know it isn’t super great, but here is my first attempt at making Slash a weapon. Her fist is attached via the side peg on Grimlock’s arm.

    That's actually really cool. The tail as the "weapon" part itself was genius.

    Thanks! I was trying to make her into a blade-type weapon to tie in with her name. I tried hanging her off Volcanicus' torso in all sorts of ways last night, unfortunately the most secure fit was definitely not family-friendly.

    He'd probably be better if the torso were deluxe scaled.

    I caved and bought Armada Smokescreen today. I bought it quick and indifferent, and saved judgement when I got home. I wasn't blown away but started to enjoy it in a very particular way. Like Hot Shot, he is bad in a fun way and can ALSO DO THIS.

    This is a stretch I know, but this hand thing with the Wheeljack Micron is pretty cool. I'd like to try the Bulkhead fist, but I never found one for a decent.
