Eureka !!!!!!!!!!!
I think that I've found the problem with the cassette legs, there are eight tabs missing from the torso....
And ,if you scale the cassettes to two-thirds the size,they should fit in the slots in the cassette players!

I'll post a pic next time....

To build these cassettes , you'll hve to be a micromaster literally!To get them to scale, they'll take up about a quater of an A4 sheet!

Hey, can you get a picture of the leg assembly? I still can't work it out. Once we've got that cleared up, the Ravage will be easy. TFVanguard said that that was the best joint for the head and legs.
Devastator might be coming soon, as a real contribution from me! Unless TFVanguard is working on him?
It will mostly be borrowed parts from other Paperformers e.g the hook assembly on Hook will be from the Longarm/Hoist model, coloured "Constructicon Green", of course.
I will go ahead with this, but TFVanguard, it is your decision as to whether I post it or not. It is coming along very nicely and I want others to build this as well. I think you know the feeling of self-satisfaction when people send you pics of a model that you designed.

Update #1: Hook is completed after about 10 minutes of non-stop working. :)
#2: Mixmaster and Scavenger are done.
#3: Scrapper is done. Only Long Haul and Bonecrusher to go! I made a lot of progress today. Time for a break from MS Paint (NFS Carbon) :D.

A peg and hole joint. The peg is a strip of paper wound into a circle and the hole is...just a hole. It will give Devy a bit of articulation as well.

UPDATE: Constructicon checklist.
Bonecrusher: ✓
Scavenger: ✓
Scrapper: ✓
Hook: ✓
Mixmaster: ✓
Long Haul: ✓

Now I need to do the head, chest plate, waist piece, and waist guard, and the forearm assemblies.

Sorry guys the Devastator won't have any articualtion - the peg joints didn't work out as I'd hoped. They'll just be tab-and-slot joints, which were originally between:
-Long Haul and Hook
-Hook and the chest plate
-Long Haul and the waist piece
-Long Haul and the waist guard
-Mixmaster and the waist piece
-Scrapper and the waist piece

There were originally peg joints between Scavenger, Hook and Bonecrusher but I replaced them with tabs and slots. I'm in the process of building him now. :D

It was some years ago and yes I had done a bunch of them like 23 of them big and small I made a ratbat, ravage and Nightstalker, but never get the rigth size, I work in a 3/4 proportion.

He does stand, albeit not very easily. He is very back heavy. The dumping part on Long Haul is a lot heavier than I'd anticipated. But he's still really cool.

I've been thinking exactly the same thing...
I'm sure a few people have seen Devy now and will want it and I can't release it without his permission!
Unless he's working on some super-crazy-amazing type PF and has no time for the thread...
