Supreme S.S. Devastator

Things have been a little bleak world wide with the current situation effecting the globe. I thought I'd share a little project I have been working on for in my spare time.
Maybe some of you can find a little enjoyment here on discussion about some transformer related goodness.
A little backstory.

I have been collecting all of the studio series constructions as I feel the robot modes for many of them are fantastic updates to the characters bringing them incredibly close to screen accuracy. Thanks to fellow member RNSrobot I was able to get my hands on longhaul and Hightower at the end of last year. Even though Hightower does not appear in the movies as a robot, I really enjoy the obscure nature of his robot mode.

That all being said, After almost completing studio series devastator, I feel his combined S.S. mode is not as screen accurate as I'd like it to be. Thus, I have ventured down the path of a ss hybrid, Using a majority of parts from the original supreme class devastator and including some elements of the studio series updates. This mainly and foremost means the face and additional details at the neck.

I've used a few additional pieces from some construction vehicles to replicate the vortex grinder and a few details to cover the tracks near the neck and shoulder connection.

In addition, I have created a set of wrecking balls for screen accuracy and added a few more pieces from various bits to create the connection point between the SS mixmaster and the previous supreme class figure.

Looks good, but I can't really tell very well when the pic is sideways.

What an interesting, ambitious, creative and unique project. That takes real vision to pull off and had you not said it was a mix, I never would have known. Great work, really great work.

Thanks Gotbot. I really wanted to get that hulking upper body look down. Added a shot of Dev. up on the pyramid diorama I'm working on.

I'm currently in the process of staging the bricks of the pyramid so that each individual construction can stand on it as well. I've hit a little of bit of a snag at the moment however as I've run out of glue. Lol

The pyramid is just cardboard, painted and detailed to appear rocky.
