G1 Devastator complete with new pics and ready for gallery!

Postby ptitvite » Mon Apr 03, 2006 8:30 am

I dedicate this to Transtopia! Dev game me the inspiration. (I took his idea about the aerialbot head and fixation) :wink: .
I have allways been sad of how the original toy looked. :cry:
THIS is how I want him to be.
:D


Enjoy! :D

The aerialbot head was your idea!! I know and I did mention it alot of times before! You are my inspiration Mr Dev!
You are still the only one who made the individual cons fully posable!
My work was based on Devastator only. Maybe one day I'll take my shot at these constructicons.

I think Dev needs another 4 members to fill in all that space. heheheh.

I keep thinking about a Devastator with no added combiner parts, or at least severely reduced.
I wonder if he would look too skinny if his fore-arms were made out of the tank treads of his arm bots. then his arms wouldn't look as thick.
also, have his thighs made out of Long Haul's legs, the two halves of his truck bed. I suppose you could compromise and keep the head and hands separate.

I was thinking about it too and i'll have to keep thinking about it 'cause it's almost impossible to make him like he was in the cartoon with all the parts that came out of nowhere. If i'm to make a Devastator like we think of, he will not ressemble G1 Dev at all. Then I guess i'll end up with a Constructicon Maximus...And I don't even like this one.

I absolutely CAN NOT get enough of this guy. And custom Devastators are always a thousand times better when they keep the use of their component parts! (ie: our six Constructobuddies, still fully transformable)

Excellent job. I so want one. :)

Holy crap! :shock:
That kicks more ass than the Devastator I was going to work on.
Still, that doesn't stop me from making a Devastator and featuring him in my funnies thread.
Excellent proportions.

On the 24th pic, did you use a grey primer for the undercoat?
Cause from that perspective, it looks as though you used clay to scratchbuild those parts.

If Hasbro/Tak officially reissued the Contructicons, it'd be awsome to have those parts added as a special feature. But...we can only dream.

Yep, used grey primer. Legos, Bionicle joints and Mega Blocks joints, putty, styrene, some TF parts, paint and clear for a nice finish.

Thanks guys!

I was almost done with project on these pics...when I decided to improve.
To improve, I had to destroy some parts. I got my lesson 'cause my devastator now has easy to replace-repair parts and to improve it would not be so heartkilling. If some joints become loose I just easely replace the end of fixation. Bionicles are NOT good for kitbashing they become loose very fast. I found a most efficient replacement: Mega Blocks Super Tech Heroes Spider-Man .
I have 2 in case I need replacement parts for my Dev.
I also decided to drop the shield I made and repainted an extra I got on ebay. :D
