    But it isn't cartoon accurate!! I repeatadly hear in the 3p subsection/Facebook. It helps to have vision :) 

    I love the size of Armageddon, I just prefer the cartoon colours instead of the toy and due to the way Zeta have designed this guy it's possible to have Onslaught 'magically' change colour for combined mode due to the separate combiner bits. Something the anti partsforming crowd completely miss as a positive.

    Honestly, I'm not sure why Zeta didn't release him like this but here goes.....

    Cartoon chest plate v1 fitting when I first combined him. 3d printed and using Blast Off's wings. Just needs a few tweaks and then the connection points adding now the measurements can be made.

    Abs and hip armour are now a light grey, when it's fully cured tomorrow along with the darker grey thighs and knees I'll update:

    I've already found a pretty good match for Brawl's green. Need ro find a match for Swindle's tan next....

    Enjoy the ride. This one is gonna be a labour of love :)

    Amazing! I know right!? How did they never think to do this since they were partsforming? But your work is amazing.

    You know if zeta released a box set for each of their combiners down the track it’d be cool if they improved the quality and made them toon accurate like constructor. I’m sure they’d do exactly what you’ve done.

    Well that's what happened after I repainted Constructor's thighs and remoulded his head. Can lightning strike twice? :D

    Heavy/Scratch: - Masterpiece Devastator

    Ppl were even using pics of my custom to advertise the v2 lol

    Regards this big boy I've painted Swindle's foot. By eye it looks near exact colour match, by camera it's slightly off and I don't get it lol

    Actually fuck this drip feeding shit. I still need to give Brawl the right shade of green on his foot but here's the rest....

    Feel free to spam Zeta for a cartoon upgrade kit with this pic :)

    Forgot to update this thread. Not long after the last post I got together with a bud and we designed a full cartoon chest plate that could be swapped out with the original:

    FB_IMG_1549979019103.jpg

    Applied with the original head, also with a new cartoon accurate pistol:

    FB_IMG_1549978951558.jpg

    And then fast forward a few months and I manage to get hold of the alternative cartoon head to finish him off:

    Concentrating on Superion with a 3d printed swappable chest, amongst other things, right now.
