    Ebay:
    I used an extra Steamhammer's leg hinges (from the side of his legs in bot mode) to create a hinged section for the wings on my Universe Scourge custom I just put up a couple days back. It has some nice parts that can be used or you can just do a simple repaint of it.

    Energon Barricade can be used to do a Mixmaster for a custom Devastator or you can use the bot itself and add on other parts to create a new character (or repaint it). The bot mode can lend itself to many different customs, you just have to think a bit outside the box.

    Energon Stormjet is what got me into customizing. A couple of years ago, I saw a cool custom that Viagra Prime did over at TFans with this mold--he did some minor mods and repainted it as Cyclonus (check the galleries here also--it's in there). It really got me motivated to actually start doing something. So if you want to do a custom Cyclonus or maybe do this to complement Universe Cyclonus (this could be his "armada"), then that could work.

    It's all up to you, man. When KB Toys had these around Christmas last year, I got extras of Barricade and Steamhammer when they had some buy one, get one free sale or something--I remember I got 'em cheap (for like $5 or less each--regular price was $10 or more).

    That's all I can think of right now.
