Combiner Wars ALBATRON -- An all female, ALL HELICOPTERS combiner!

Motto: "Love it? GET IT!
It's that simple."
Weapon: Mace
This will probably be the last Combiner Wars commission ordered by my friend. He's pretty bumbed out that the combiners Wars line ended without ever creating a big helicopter main body. So I was tasked to make one.

That crazy dude bought TWO Combiner Wars Victorion sets. One was for an all land vehicles combiner. All cars and the fire truck as the main body, plus the bike as a chest plate. The result is pretty neat.

But what about the helicopters?

Well...

Allow me to present you:

:michaelbay: COMBINER WARS PANDORA :michaelbay:

Image

Ironically, the main body used here was from Combiner Wars Onslaught. Very few parts were brought over from the original Pyra-Magna.
Another bot, who was 100% complete and unbroken was sacrificed for the Cause: Animated Leader Megatron.
Countless of other parts came from my bin of parts. The keen-eyed may spot a few.
As for painting, I'm still just an amateur using mostly Krylon spray cans. Expensive clear cans of Tamya were used for the metallic green and metallic red effects.
Yes, it's very asymmetrical. But it's my style and she too came from the Sea of Rust. So it count, right?

Image
Image
Image
Image


I had to scrape some junk around the combiner ports after that picture so the limbs can connect normally.
Image

The blades can rotate without hitting each others.
Image

And below, a comparison with the original Onslaught:
Image

The transformation sequence have many new bits so here's how to transform her:

Remove the weapons:
Image

Lift up the green side-parts, and move the red thighs-skirts out of the way:
Image

Unwrap the panels from the right foot, both the top and bottom ones. Unpeg the rotor-blades block.
Image

Rotate the torso 180°.
Peg the rotor-blades block on it's leg and fold the panels neatly on it's own leg. Fold the red thighs-skirts neatly on the back of the legs.
Image

Put the arms into position:
Image

Rotate the backpack 180°, move the arms panels upward, open the chest plate and take the head out.
Image

AND HERE WE HAVE PANDORA IN HER ROBOT MODE!
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

And here's the comparison with the Onslaught original:
Image

ONWARD TO THE TORSO MODE:

Rotate the arms at the shoulders 90° so the combiner ports are facing forward. Rotate the backpack, who is now the chestplate, 180° and unfold the rotorblades block from the combiner head.
Image

This is how everyone transform their bruticus wrong. Why the arms are rotated so the combiner ports are facing you is to allow these pegs from the chest plate to peg into these slots right here:
Image

Place the arms around like this, rotate the head forward, and place the crotch plate.
Image

It is very important that the legs are placed this way, the side of what was the vehicle facing forward:
Image

Place the thighs skirts like so
Image
Image
Image
Image

To complete the look, place the arms in a V toward the back. Peg the guns on the back of the arms and peg the swords into the bot's tiny hands, making them go downward like a cape.
Image

AND THERE WE GO, TORSO MODE!
Obligatory comparison shot. Pandora is BIG.
Image


Now for the whole combined mode, you'll have to unpeg the chestplate from the shoulder to allow the connection of the arm. Peg it back in one the limb is in place.

Image
Image

:michaelbay: HERE IS ALBATRON IN ALL HER GLORY! :michaelbay:

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Note that none of the single copter limb are modded in any way. Only the hands, feet, and weapons of the big combiner have been sprayed shiny silver.

Image

Albatron have long and sexy legs and she TOWER over the original Victorion!

Image

Well, that was the most difficult and long project I've done in a while. I'm very proud of the results and I hope you guys enjoyed!

In a week or so I will post a series of photos showing when she was at the near final stage, where she just need a few mods before being painted. Stay tuned! Especially if you are curious to discover what parts I used more clearly.

heh...the extra height actually gives her a more feminine look than Victorion that's for sure.

I think we all may need to change hosts, Photobucket is hosing all of their users, extorting them to "upgrade" to their P500 account for third-party hosting, which is $400 a year. :michaelbay: :twisted: :evil:

Woah dude, that's amazing! Nice use of the Classics Octane for the front part of the chopper! Absolutely loving the metallic finish on the green and those helicopter rotor blades are fantastic. The combined mode looks pretty darn solid too especially with all that helicopter symmetry!

Now I'm just gonna sit here in a corner and wonder if I'll ever be able to paint properly :P

I'm more skilled with BIG customs. They are way easier to make and to paint for me.
Only thing I noticed though. Yellow and orange are the HARDEST colors to paint because those colors are semi-transparent, thus requiring a THICK coat to hide the previous color. And thick coats of paints is a big no-no for robots because it give a goopy finish and hide the small details. the colors that are easiest to work with are the metallic ones. Because usually, one tiny coat is enough to hide everything and the sculpted details are not hidden under a goopy mess.

I'll update my other galleries in due time. Look forward to Sparkeater, a supreme class sized bot that is 100% original!

From the top of my head, here's all the bots used to make this custom. Some were used more than other like most of the body, but most were only bits and pieces used. I'll go tell the specific pieces. I'll let you find them in the pictures.

Combiner Wars Pyra Magna
Combiner Wars Onslaught
Movie voyager 2007 Starscream
Leader AND voyager Animated Megatron
Animated Sentinel Prime
G1 Doubledealer
Movie 2007 deluxe Brawl
A random Barbie
Power Core Combiner Icepick
Cybertron Quickmix
Star Wars X-Over Darth Maul
Universe Octane
Voyager DOTM Optimus Prime
Mega Blocs Power Ranger

And lots of screws, nuts, hinges, and bolts.

There may be other bots were parts I used but I don't remember.

Those swords come with Animated leader Megatron. A great toy. I have mine and my friend who ordered Albatron bought one. 100% complete and unbroken... that was sacrificed for the cause! :twisted:

The blades, wings, and legs were used.

I thought those swords would be good for a combiner wars springer.

Oh they would. However, be sure to also use Megatron's wing. This is where the rotating mechanism is located and it's there that the sword plug in in rotorblade mode.

Also, for your springer CW to make sense and be a quadchanger (copter, jeep, bot, torso) you'll need to make it a voyager. I think the Hotspot/Onslaught mold is your best bet. However, it will take a pretty extensive retooling. Maybe more heavy than what I did for Albatron.

I was originaly hinking of shortening them and fitting them onto a deluxe. I am not sure if it will work though so I think I will wait until I have them in person so I can actualy see the size better.

Don't forget that you'll have to find a way to make the blade rotate. The original rotating mechanism may be too big for a deluxe. And if you can make it transform into a kinda-jeep too, that will be a feat in itself.
