    BED754D4-16CA-4092-8E0B-52210FCF61E5.jpeg I just got Overload today and I completed my Devastator. Here he is with Generations Thrilling 30 Legends Optimus Prime witch scales properly with SS Devastator. Notice some reworkings I did with mine.

    I try to look at the official devy and like it, but even with the way you posed the arms to make him look better, I just can’t get over his tiny and strange legs

    well, if you want the "ears" red, why not just have them flip around? hide the red on the interior. i cant imagine that whatever little armature youve put them on would be too much of an eyesore to be seen from the front.

    Well I figured out his ears and his smaller inner jaw, his face is also connected.

    right now I am trying to have the wheels and sides of the cab fold to fill out the sides of his face, but still not shire where the hood or bumper should go, any ideas?

    I finally got my Overload!

    so now i can finally show off that alt head transformation i talked about a while back that puts the vortex part overload coems with inside the mixmaster's mixing drum components instead of clipping over top of them.

    Probably because they might be able to incorporate some of this into their custom. Rather than scratch build some of these parts, they could buy them and use them already sculpted.

    Doesn't seem like the goal here, though.

    It’s all good, I’m going with whatever works best, the less I scratch build the faster I can finish, but if I were to buy the whole kit to take and modify a part or 2 I’d be crazy. it is good to have the inspiration tho, so thank you.

    Small update, decided to work on mixmasters hands to make them fold away and have more articulation.

    So far they fold closer to the wheel wells, and I’ll add a toolbox to cover them up.

    C693ABB0-295D-40CB-9713-DD0E96478BB9.jpeg
    here it sits now, a slot cut into the wheel well to fit his finger, and the toolbox I stole from a rotf mixmaster.

    63AACC0E-081D-4600-AC68-15364B948B5A.jpeg D25B986C-B316-4785-8DDD-D8128C4D4A85.jpeg 64ECF734-C4BB-48F8-8AF0-5771E294827C.jpeg 724957FD-9227-493A-AA8C-6A8D82607AF8.jpeg 05F1D923-993A-4E73-9957-F87280988ACD.jpeg EE7FCFD3-F68F-4596-9CAD-C678FDF78E65.jpeg

    I’d say it now has much better possibility and articulation now, and doesn’t affect transformation.

    as always comments are always welcome.

    looks sick and was almost exactly what i had in mind!

    they look so much more expressive too with the articulation improvements.

    Update time,

    added some articulation to mixmaster and gave him a waist joint to make the transformation work, I’ll explain in the next update.

    here is his new arm look compared to the old 7122B633-8474-4DF4-8561-3D13D27F513C.jpeg

    A4B7AA5E-D9E0-4782-8F05-4C842859D5F2.jpeg

    and here’s the joints I added.

    Also here is the head folded up and expanded showing his “ears”

    B3082ED9-FED5-4457-B671-4C2348774042.jpeg F2AE126B-CF3C-4334-8AD9-3431864DD07E.jpeg D0304945-67F8-4C19-99FA-DC4E9C7A75C6.jpeg

    the lower jaw isn’t attached yet, but I have that planned out.

    And lastly here is a look at some added joint to his foot to fold up more
