    Ya know if you ever fix the whole set up... I don't see why it'd hurt to put it for sale... unless it's prohibitively expensive or something.

    Anyway... I see Crankcase being a wannabe Stunticon Leader... so here's a wannabe Menasor!

    [​IMG]

    Smolder is a solid leg... Double Clutch is... OK I guess... (very fiddly, but he's by far the weakest PCC of all of them) Mudslinger's surprisingly solid for an arm mode.. and lastly Leadfoots a bit fiddly, but he works. Was thinking of putting him as the core and Crankcase as an arm since they both work better as such... but eh... doesn't pull the Wannabe Menasor as well...

    Will say this... unfortunately, the weight of full-sized PCCs is hard to bear on a few cores. Crankcase is sadly one of them. ATM, only Bombshock seems to hold his figures up well. If there's pegs/tabs you can thicken a bit, it helps... if you can put bits to support the arms, or prevent drooping, that works too. Again, it's not an issue with the adapters... it's an issue with the fact that the figures were designed to hold the weight of much lighter drone limbs.

    Anyway... found most of my PCCs... tried forming a few more arm modes.

    Searclight makes a nice arm mode... only downside is that the long connector still can't join both pegs onto the core figure.

    [​IMG]

    Sledge makes a *great* arm mode... only thing that'd make it better would be if the scoop were facing outwards... if you don't mind partsforming it's doable.

    [​IMG]

    I noticed something too... the Autobot PCCs either have "meh" decos... or are the worse molds of the bunch... Skyburst and Double Clutch mainly.

    Edit: Broke Skyburst... piece of junk thigh joints snapped.

    Few more PCC combos:

    Steamhammer and Sledge as arms:

    Another variant of an All Vehicle PCC gestalt:

    Mudslinger as the core, and Leadfoot as a rather weak Leg mode:

    Here's a shot of Superion with leg extensions. They're standing even, so you can see he's almost as tall as Bruticus. It really helps!

    Now, to get 4 Brute Helicopter shoulders and 5 forearms without going broke...

    Just to let everybody know that I will be closing my store on March 15.







    But it will reopen later this year! When the store reopens, It will have updated older models and a whole new line that I will debut!
    I will be taking the "Scramble-Core" concept further then I ever did before.

    So whomever wants to order, make sure it's before the 15th of March because some of the items will not be coming back.

    Any request on how the new line should take form should be left on this thread.

    Thanks all for your business and support!
    Ed

    Cool. :thumb 

    Lessee what goodies you got in store for the Scramble Core... got a few PCCs that either need another batch of adapters... or whatever your new designs have in store for them. (Except Skyburst... that PoS had a leg snap off... ;_; )

    It ties into my previous work.
    :wink: 
    Yeah that Skyburst mold is pretty terrible.
    And PM me later.

    Glad you like them! I hope you like what I have coming up as well.

    ...considering that "Motor Master" kit you were working on... you might like these two shots:

    The armor came from that wierd KO that's 3/5 Menasor and 2/5 Computron. Fits quite well. (Worth noting the mini-KO Bruticus head and armor work quite well too.) The head's not glued or anything though. The waist armor is frictioned, and I added a 5mm port on the chest armor.

    Need a new poster board for a solid black background... this one's all scratched up. >_<

    A friendly reminder, 9 days left before the store closes. The reopening is unknown and some items are not coming back.

    Will the PCC combiner bits be coming back? I'm interested in those, but not really in a position to buy them right now.

    Nothing is guaranteed but the PCC are the most likely pieces to stay.

    Just nabbed some Herc shoulder extensions as I think it will make the arm position much better. Thanks for keeping the store open until today, and thanks for all the cool stuff! I know how much hard work goes into this!!!

    All the best,

    Echo

    ...just hope the G2 Prime upgrades are available again later... could use two sets of the shoulder extensions... and tbh the whole set's kinda useful. (Esp since the SG Magnus trailer doesn't have a sword hilt.)

    ^since you got it in a color, strong, and flexible; its possible that the hands came out too thick. I would suggest you sand down the fingers abit until you see some white. Pm me if you still have problems.

    I received my Shapeways order the other day and am loving the Aerial Forearms and Battle Tanker Upgrade. I do have a question though about the shoulder adapter. I saw your pic on page 42 and I know what part the adapter replaces. I swapped it out on mine and it I doesn't make the shoulders any taller. What am I doing wrong?
