Chibi-Devs: Brainchild of a 16 yr old (Shapeways)

Edit 2: oops, I seem to have forgotten one thing: when the parts aren't being use for Chibi-Devs, the extra parts can also be link together to form a base mode! It's basically just a few cannons and ramps you can have the six Chibi-Structicons driving around in. Pics coming soon! EDIT: I am now on ...

As usual, i agree with Rattrap. Actually to me it's pretty sweet. I like it, barring the Shredder face (though i didn't really notice it till i read it). And personally, it would make a damn cool Blitzwing with a head swap. And a triangular jet that finally doesn't really show much alt. mode kibble ...

Okay, i think i've got this: You want to make a Wreckage from Onslaught, using a Head Swap and removing the turret from the vehicle. Okay. Sorry, most of us thought you meant a reshell (i.e. taking a scale model of a vehicle, and superimposing it onto the existing transfomer), which would be a lot h...

Calm down... ;)

Let me get this straight: You want to make Ultra Class Onslaught into Movie Wreckage, but bigger?

Are you planning a whole reshell or a simple repaint? Because a reshell would mean you'd need to find the vehicle Wreckage turns into, and in scale with Onslaught.

According to S70, Skystalker's weaons are usable on Brakedown (clip to his hands), Sonar/Depthcharge (there's a matching hole in his palm) and also (ironically) Autobot Scattershot.

I generally don't arm them with extra stuff, but if i need to, a 5mm styrene tube glued over any existing handle will do. Though, that runs the problem of theat weapon permanently stuck with a 5mm peg. Otherwise, Knock offs. Still, i rearely find any KO's anymore with those pegs, so often the above ...

Hmm... Most of the Armada toys sucked, and i honestly can't remember one off the top of my head that was any good. Blurr's minicon was about the only half decent thing to come out of Armada, too bad Blurr himself was a brick. Well, maybe some other minicons were okay as well. That's it. Energon... p...

Good luck. White on anything is hard, though it doesn't sound too bad. Hope you sanded it all down, though. That many layers can get paint rubbing all over the place if you're not careful.

Nice to hear you getting into this, Electro Girl. Have to say i agree with borg72 about blue to white being hard, for anyone. My advice, get some primer on that thing first.

Beyond them both being toy robot lines there are basically no similarities whatsoever. Erm, beyond that most of the 'complete' figures are well-made, dynamic, don't turn into florescent cars and have nice colour schemes, so I doubt someone who likes Cybertron will find a lot of pleasure in Gundam. ...

I have nothing against my Alt. Wheeljack, but then again it was my last day in Reading, went into Argos and managed to pick it up for 7 pounds. That's about what's good about the mold.

Route 66. Well, not the actual thing, but the portrayals of it, etc. Why is kitbashing often confused by people just hearing about it for the first time as 'kid-bashing'? They're the sort you would not want to share a forum with? How can you hear the word 'Kitbashing' on a forum, and not just read a...

I'm with Knightdramon in that i like Tankor... ...in robot mode. Sans the big PoS so called weapon he comes with.

I don't think it's that much of a stretch, heck, i've already designed and 3d printed my own transforming robot toy. It just didn't work due to incorrect tolerances and stuff, but you get the idea.
