That's a pretty cool idea. I like how it came out. (and the little tech-page is great. ;) )

Very nice add-on to Ricochet. Ye just gotta work on the nose next. :P :lol:

..WOW.... a target master I actually like, scratch that, LOVE. Did those two bots always combine into one larger one? And can we get a pic of Masterpiece/20th Prime holding him? He looks a tad big for an alternator. Maybe its because the handle is way at the back, so it doesn't look like a rifle as much as a handgun. But any way you look at him hes freggin' sweet.
till all are one.

I saw someone scrape most of the gold off his face and left the goatee....
It looked amazing...

Hey, thanks for responding! Glad you like my work! I did the tech spec for fun when I asked the guys over at TFans if they could figure out what I used to make this guy out of. As always, I just wanted to have some fun! :P

When I revisit this Alternator, I do want to do a few more things:

Paint the face gold (honestly, I'm not a fan of the hue of gold that's on there anyways)
Consider options to make each smaller robot guns themselves
Mount for vehicle mode
Shoulder mount for robot mode

For now I'm moving back to my Altenators Screamer custom (this TM project was initiated late last year when I was planning on making a RX-8 Ricochet, shelved when I heard Hasbro was making Ricochet, then put back on the table while Alternators Sunstorm was drying). When I finish Screamer, I'll have my Alternators Seekers project I started last May complete! After I finish him, who knows? :o

Rook and Crosswise were the "headmasters" to Armada Sideways. They did combine in their inital release.

I'll try to take a pic of Nightstick with Prime and/or Magnus (I just got MP-02 the other day, W00T!)

When I was working on him, my initial apprehension was the same about the size. After I finished it, I really liked it though. My goal was to always make a huge rifle for him. As stated in my last post, I may look at ways to make the smaller robot into handguns each.

Glad you like my work though! I really appreciate your guys' feedback! It means a lot! :)
