    so i got Dotm HA Sandstorm today. and i wanna make him into a more classics Becomber. similar to the way Budokhan is doing his. filling gaps, and making him a little more g1 and classics looking.

    but i was thinking, he's kind of a bulky guy. kinda looks more like a wrecker to me. and I'm working on a group of wreckers for myself.

    So my question is, you think that a Beachcomber made from dorm sandstorm could be part of the wreckers?

    why not sandstorm, he was a wrecker,
    there is also minicon dunerunner, though not sure if his personality fits for a wrecker...
    micron crunch
    there is Decepticon Ruckus (triggercon)
    minicon Kobushi, (I think he is 'con aligned)

    Personally, I say just repaint him with a couple of oranges and make him closer to g1 sandstorm.....

    anyways, here's the best page to maybe help you out...
    Wrecker - Transformers Wiki

    Thing to remember, the Wreckers are on the thin line of being outlaws. Even IDW Magnus said he had to leave because of the Wreckers' way of doing things shouldn't be seen by him.

    :lol  yeah, the only way that'd work would be SG Beachcomber.

    I like the sandstrom idea. maybe combine parts with the HA basic whirl?

    I think he would make an excellent target master like sureshot or crosshairs. Hell make it so that the target masters can ride inside of him. then make a pointblank out of dragstrip

    im thinkin i might go with the wrecker Sandstorm. i know he's a tripped changer. but it seems to work.
    i can rework the cab and chest with styrene to make it look more like his g1 self. and ill fill in gaps so make his limbs look a little more boxy
