The rage inside cheetor grew, he knew he could of lead the maximals to victory, primals plan to crash the escape pod into the nemises left them stranded, cheetor losing tigerhawk to the nemises and then rinox in the suicide run, unhinged cheetor, time went on, cheetor then hatched a plan if he kills starscream before the war starts on earth rampage would never existed changing everything about the beast wars, primal stood in his way a fight between primal and cheetor erupted battle lines where drawn, both sides lost, cheetor limped off and primal to wounded to fight on did all he could, now cheetor stands with his battle platform made from the parts of those who stood against him, cheetor softly speaks: old friend you where right we are all going to die.

When the last Combiner has fallen, and only stray team members have managed to survive, they must draw upon the power of combination in new and untested ways. The last hope in defeating the threat that could destroy their entire race. Scramble city base-mode activate!!

I'll leave the decision up to NFK but if that there is Onslaught your entry may be invalid Thatotherguy.
Thought I'd mention it so you have time to prepare another if that's the case :)

All good as The CW version doesn't really have an official base mode as far as I'm aware. The original G1 and its other iterations would have been out.

Forgive the lateness, but finding the time to do this over the week has been difficult.
I really wanted to do a beast wars entry but following the two strong ones we have had already, I decided to give another personally much loved line a go. Enter Transformers Animated. Magna-command outpost.

Image

Inspired a little also by Rogue One, I included optimus as an AT-ST. Tried very hard to plug guns into him but Animated bots were put together SOLID. No holes or hollow cavities to utilise. So his lights are Pulse lasers.

What you don't see is Optimus' water pistol is on the back of the base as a rear mounted cannon.

This was fun.

Beast Wars Optimus Primal and ROTF Firetrap combine to form.... The Big-Bot Bungalow!

I became so focused on turning everything into platforms for the titan masters to stand and sit on that I got a pleasant surprise when I popped open the left forearm and a perfectly sized gun emplacement flipped out.

Can't agree more. It's very engaging to muck around with old bots, contort them into new forms and adorn them with smaller characters. Even the most crackpot ideas and combinations can be a lot of fun. I tried combining Primal with Beast Wars Megatron, and whilst it didn't work the attempt to do so was plenty amusing.

Really enjoying these ingenious entries!

Due to the holidays I might as well announce the final round now to give an extra day head start. Round 3: "No, that's not going to work"

For a change of pace, the final round will not be judged on how cool or convincing or base looks. Instead it will be on how amusing the results are. ;)

The scenario for this sets a science team in a situation where they need to protect some important work equipment from the changing weather. The device is in a critical phase of its operation and cannot be moved when the first spots of rain arrive. The larger bots in the party need to quickly transform themselves into an improvised shelter to prevent any rain damage and to allow the others to keep working until the weather clears up. In their haste the first attempt at the shelter is so unfit for purpose that it induces a few forehead slaps from the others. They succeed eventually.

Your task is to capture the two moments. The failure, and the success.

Use either one or two bots to form the shelter. Use something small to represent the device. Remember that it cannot be moved so you will need to work around it.

We have the results for the first round. I'll throw them out with the results for the second round.

Up to two bots, so you can use either one or two. Just to leave a little freedom in your set up for the failure photo or to patch things up for the final photo.
