    You could do him as a Starscream as a Cobra Night RAven like that crossover from 5 years ago

    I had Jetfire in mind as the existing one is a bit small.

    What you really ought to do is give Silverbolt connector ports for the hypothetical release of Arielbots. And combiner accessories for Superion. Nothing else matters.

    I mean, honestly, as cool as customizing him into another character would be, you've got a Silverbolt mold. Last I checked, Silverbolt wasn't a standalone figure. Someone needs to finish the fucking job. This is why I love/hate Hasbro. They tease us with a new line, and even go as far as to release gestalt bosses, but they don't include anything in the way of a combiner.

    Watch, Hasbro will release the other Arielbots but with no way of connecting them. Then some independent company will step in and create a Superion kit, create a very limited number, and charge $300 for it.

    Sorry, I'm just bitter.

    p.s. I really hope Ptitvite considers him for his Superion.

    I nominate Darkwing.

    He already looks a LOT like him in bot mode, with the upswept wings and plane nose on his back. Even the head isn't too far off, shape-wise. Though, to me the similarity is so strong that I will be shocked if Hasbro doesn't do this repaint themselves at some point.... so bash at your own risk! :)

    I really, really hope they don't, or I will have to track down Dreadwind...

    i mentioned a while ago that a classic jetfire and a universe silverbolt would be realy good for dreadwind and darkwing if there was some way of combining them in jet mode. you could even bash some minicons into powermasters for them

    make it razorclaw, the minicon from Cybertron. he's mostly black and would be really sharp looking, and certainly not what most would expect to see you make, either.

    In fact, I think I'm gonna try to do the combination, if I can get him cheaply enough and a spare Jetfire... AND unless someone else tries it out first and proves it to be a real mess to do.

    Superion and Bruticus both need to be made from Onslaught and Silverbolt. I can see how silverbolt might work. But bruticus would be even more fear imposing with those shoulder claws.

    Really wish hasbro had followed through on those. =/

    Y'know, as I stared at the other 3 remaining at my TRU Thursday in MD, I thought about getting one and mailing it to you. I so want to see a Superion completed by one of you guys in here. I'm still working on a way to mod his upper torso so that the arm/limbs movement won't be hindered by Silverbolts wingspan.

    Please tell me you're going to do a step by step guide for it. =D
    And what of bruticus? =D

    Between you and frenzy_rumble, I'm seeing classics gestalts as they should be. So excuse my excitedness. xD Your Menasor, and his Devastator are utter orgasmic perfection.
