    CK said that a number of "studios" are working on devastator kits.
    I agree. I'm not sure if I want any more 3D printed stuff. They always just feel so fragile, and something attaching to a huge combiner needs to be durable!
    Thanks for posting! Soundwave's transformation is still a joke, but cliffjumper looks pretty fun and interesting. Topspin looks to have almost the same transformation as Roadbuster.

    I recently pulled my RotF Soundwave out of storage because he seems to by far more accurate then the SS one. Maybe I'll head swap or something.

    but I will have to not drink for 2 weeks to recover ;-)

    Nice pic! How did you remove the stand from the picture? Did you use photoshop?
    It looks really good! Will you pose Devastator on all fours or standing up? If you pose him on all fours, I don't think that hand would work.

    I can feel the spit all the way from here.
    Awesome edits! How does he only have one hand on the table? When I try to put one up, he just falls on his face, lol!

    Thanks!

    And yeah, I did it using the clone tool in photoshop. It's a bit messy though since I just used the mouse pad on my laptop to do it, rather than my tablet and pen

    It's another name for black mamba. They are OS-ing the SS constructicons.

    Added these stickers to his forearms which came from the Reprolabels SS Starscream set. Good size, but I did cut off 1.5mm off each end to fit into the square of those panels.

    My... Autobots... can repair me. Cough cough.

    PicsArt_08-04-09.20.19.jpg

    No. I don't think we've ever fixed anything! Have we? In the last 3 movies, did we? Nope. Ratchet? Uh, maybe but not sure. I might have fixed Bee's legs and reattached Prime's arm but I can't remember.

    No. Sorry, Prime.

    IMG_20200804_090135__01.jpg

    Fine. I'll do it myself.

    Well Ratchet did "Jolt" the corpse of Jetfire onto Prime and tried (but failed) to repair Bee's voicebox. Kinda weird that Prime was able to heal himself by scanning a new alt mode... and it's worse that humans did more procedures on the transformers than the transformers themselves.

    I used the wheel rotation on Scavenger as a slight abdomen rotation, rotated the panels holding the arms as much as necessary and jammed overloads legs in the gaps to hold the arms in position. Took a while to get the balance just right but it’s perfectly solid like that once everything is aligned well.

    As long as he splays the fingers out a bit it’ll work well.

    Hopefully, all the stores have here is Roadbusters and Soundwaves.

    What bothers me more is the fact that the white truck BARELY (if at all) looked like the truck Optimus turned into.

    “Should” is a key word. Still remember how SS DOTM Optimus wave was delayed for like 2 weeks while the SS 2007 Megatron wave came 2 weeks early.

    I think Topspin should be out next month alongside Leadfoot.
