Thanks everyone, I've got him sorted now. I'm gonna get one of the waist pieces too since that's always been a design flaw. I loved the concept of the combiners in Energon. There were simply major screw ups in the figures and assembly to make them great. The FP kits are a giant leap toward making them far better. Thanks again, all. ;)

I guess I'll have to get myself one of those filler pieces as well and that head as well, that just looks boss.
Does the head attach easily?


The head is a KO G1 Superion head and it just sits on the normal Silverbolt head. It fits about as well as the Protector's does on Hot Rod's. I don't think it's any bigger than the original G1 Superion helmet. I just plain don't the combined head it came with!


Wow I just now noticed that. It does look top shelf so I gotta get me one too, thanks for posting that Zod! :VEHI:

Wow, looks awesome! How do you do that alternate transformation for the arms? Looks so much more G1, I want to do that with mine.

Thanks for the link to Shapeways, looks pretty awesome. I'm guessing these need painting? Too bad FP didn't include something like this in the kit already, but to be fair it was their first combiner upgrade.

For those of us not talented with painting, which of those color options for the chest fillers do you guys suppose would work with RotF Superion and FP's first set of parts?

It was really easy to do. Here's a side view:

Now the forearm blasters would only fit on the inside of the arms. You can switch the legs to keep them but I chose not to.

I got it in the sturdy white plastic and just stuck it in there. I didn't even paint mine and you see how it looks. I think it looks great as it is!

Cool, thanks for the pics! Easy indeed. I'll probably fold the leg or something so it's not just hanging off the back of the combiner.

I tried a couple of ways of bending and twisting that leg to get it out of the way but I just got fed up and said screw it. It goes against the back of the Bots shelf anyway so it doesn't bother me. I hope you find something better.

I think I'll bite and get myself the CrazyDevy Superion head, the cheap one not the one with the LEDs, since KO Superion is a little too expensive just to buy as a head for my Classics Superion.

Maybe you could just get a vintage G1 head. There are plenty of them on ebay for 5-6$, both in Europe and in the US.

Yea I know, I found them pretty cheap on Transformersland
http://www.transformerland.com/store/search3.php
But the CrazyDevy head does look a little better and a little more modern, so I'll just get that.

I only used a KO head because that's what I have. It's not a good KO or anything like that. I got it from a crappy Easter basket at a discount store years ago. If you do gt the Crazydevy head, post pics. I may be down for one.

I didn't come up with much better. Originally I had it like yours but with the leg folded against the nose of the plane. Looked okay...now I just have it folded up as it would be in alt mode. Kinda defeats the G1-ness a bit though. Not sure which way I want to keep it, haven't decided yet. However, I did figure out a solution for the guns I thought you might like to see:

Just thought I'd update, I did find a solution for folding those legs that I'm pretty pleased with. The arms, not quite sure yet. He's also packing HEAT now. :grin: I'll post pics when able.

I also found a loose G2 Superion head I'm considering buying for this... although there's nowhere to put it in alt mode, so maybe not. I also don't know why I thought the different configuration was more G1, because it's totally not. :lol: But I still think it looks cooler anyway and allows for more articulation, so I'm keeping it.

Me too, it's pretty cool! :D

is there a way of giving it a smooth surface? I've considered sandpapering and polishing it, but wanted to ask beforehand. I have it in White strong and flexible.

Now all I need is that CrazyDevy head, if only TFSource would accept my postcode, I think I'll just take the more expensive route and buy it from bbts instead.

I just got my Crazy devy Superion head in.
It does not work on Classics Superion, and even if it did, it's comically over sized for the figure and the plastic quality isn't worth the money it costs.

I hope so.I wouldn't know what else to do with it.
I think I'll go and paint the combiners original head with black and gold paint to emulate the original.

Here's my (crapy) paint work:
Image
Sorry bout the quality.

I have to say, the original head horns look awesome in black and gold. The only bad thing is that the horns are made of this stupid bendy rubbery material and the paint doesn't quite dry or spread as well as it does on plastic.

I think I'll strip the paint and ask my friend to cast it in black resin and paint that.

Before I just stuck the G1 head on it I had made a antennae piece that replaced that crest. I unscrewed the head, pulled out the soft plastic piece and cut off the side fins, and attached the more G1 side spokes to it and reassembled the head. The antennae/spokes were made from just a styrene rod sticking out of a styrene tube and it would look like guns on the "Silverbolt" jet mode. I only scrapped it because the paint just didn't work! The gold didn't look right, the yellow didn't look right, nothing! So I just plopped a G1 KO helmet on the smaller head and called it a day.

Before you do that, try finding a friend who paints miniatures and ask if they have any P3 Paints by Privateer Press. It's a liquid pigment acrylic. Provides excellent coverage.

I'd suggest going and buying it, but not sure if you want to buy a $3 paint bottle for a single project.

I am aware this is an older thread but it's mine. I also have a reason. ;) I'm looking at buying this. http://www.shapeways.com/model/157589/s ... ler-2.html Yes finally. I was wondering if anyone could give me pointers on what material to buy it in. I have no paint skills but I can easily do a couple spray applications if needed. I really would like to keep the detail as best as possible without doing a bunch of prep work. So, pointers?
