Movie Cy-Kill

Although originally a Gobot, Cy-Kill occasionally makes cameo appearances in the comic books; usually to be killed off as soon as the story allows.

Cy-Kill is based on the HftD Chopsaw mold and features the following:
– Improved headsculpt. Chopsaw is a fugly beast, so the quick addition of a nose and lower jaw make Cy-Kill look a lot better.
– Holochromatic spectral chrome paint job. It doesn’t show very well in the pictures, but he has a rainbow-reflection on the chrome in good light.
– Removed the front wheel arch because Chopsaw’s hands were frankly rubbish and as a chopper is looks much better this way.
– Attached new hands to the front forks, in the same style as the original Gobot.
– The front wheel detaches from the hands and can be used as a weapon, or attached to the shoulders as per the original toy.

He’ll be going on to ebay shortly, so feel free to drop by and bid. And so, on to the pictures…

Well, this is looking rather nice. Images are appearing all over the place of the new prototype and it’s slated for a January release. This could be very harmful to the wallet…

Pimp My… Devastator!

Hearts of Steel Devastator

I picked up this monster from a cheap store for the equivalent of $10. I really do hate PCCs with a passion, but Steamhammer and his drones have some lovely detail on them. I’m desperate to go to work painting him up, but could never do it while he remained a stumpy, walking clothes line. Ergo, he had to die, to be reborn as… Steampunk / Hearts of SteelĀ Devastator!
HoS Devasator is primarily a heavily modified Steamhammer mixed with a RotF Scavenger, PCC GroundspikeĀ and random oddments from the bits box. You’ll notice that the torso has been increased in heightĀ to make it more imposing and better proportioned. Shoulders and elbows are ball jointed to replace the poor/non-existant articulation in the original model. The torso now has a swivel joint at the waist and a tilt and swivel joint at the ribs to allow for a bit of chest pumping and/ or bending down to squash some poor Autobot.
The neckĀ and wrists areĀ also ball jointed, and I’ll be adding some feet, again on ball joints. I have also started articulating the fingers, as the original hands were too good to lose. In all, this will be a well articulated Devy, able to bust all kinds of moves šŸ™‚
There’s still a fair amount of work to be done; finishing off the arms, modifiying the head and providing some kick-ass weapons, but I can’t wait to paint him up. If you have an opinion on what colours you’d like to see (G1/G2/other?) then post me a comment here, or Facebook!
