Hello everyone. While on my hunt for the new Kreo Combiners today, I picked me up another Hook figure. Since there is no Long Haul I decided to make one out of Hook. I took a 2x4 brick and cut it into a |_| shape. I then took (2) 1x2 pannels and glued the |_| to the pannels. I then took what parts I had left over and made the over hang part for the bucket. It sticks up a little high in Vehicle mode but I'll never display it that way so I don't care. I attached a customized vest piece to Devastator and the new bucket can attach to his back in combined mode.
Here's the whole gang
Now to combine. Only problem is the arms are just ugly and the pieces on the legs are not too accurate. I adjusted the legs and here's what I got for the first step.
After that, I created 2 custom parts. These parts have female lego connectors on both sides and will fit over the arm.
The next step is just taking off the shovels and placing the parts on the arms then placing the shovels back on like this...
From there, Just attach the treads to the newly created parts and Ta-Da...a more accurate (and better looking in my opinion) Devastator!
