    Default Adapting FoC into Combiner Wars

    Regular readers may have noticed I've been posting some FoC customs. What you may not have seen is the work I did on their combiner ports.
    I've been cutting them in half so they can fit on Combiner Wars figures.
    The ports are too big for CW. I've seen some work where the CW ports have been enlarged, but I didn't want to cut up all my CW core figures.
    Caveats: in customising Brawl I buggered up his foot configuration. He could work as an arm, but I like that look even less.
    There's not enough space around Swindle/Barricade's port to be used as an arm. Same problem with Vortex for a leg.

    I'm not sure how I feel about the aesthetic crossover, but without doubt, you're pulling off some magic here!

    Yeah they stand out a bit from the CW aesthetic... it's why I gave them Fallen faction stickers. In my head they're from another dimension with different aesthetics/technology.

    That's really clever. I was wondering what you were going to do about Megatron. I like the idea that they take over the hive mind of their host to bring Megatron to life.

    When you say you cut the combiner pot in half, I assume you mean in height? It's pretty amazing that the dimensions remain pretty compatible.

    Hi
    Yes, the FoC ports' width is just fine but the length/height is too much. Imagine it like an upside down T. The cross arm is fine, but the centre bit needs to be roughly halved to fit.
