    With all the recent releases of Autobots outnumbering Decepticons, what are some of the RTS Bots that would make good Cons? Simply remove the rub sign and replace with a Repro Label.

    Some of my candidates are:

    Fallback
    Mindset
    Deep Dive
    Bodyblock

    All of these would make great Cons!!!

    What are your ideas?

    Why would Outback be a Decepticon?

    Like GogDog said, you do know that Fallback=Outback, right?

    The mold for Brawn/Fallback screams Con to me.... I know he is meant to be Outback. However, does that mean he has to be? Why do you have to be stuck on what he is "meant" to be.... I'm just throwing out an idea. Take it for what it is. These figures could have very well been Cons from the start. Why not make Outback into a Con with a new faction sticker and you have an instant Swindle.... I know the colors aren't right, but it's just an idea....

    1) Put Decepticon sticker on Mindset

    2) Army build him

    3) Put them next to G1 Shockwave

    Now you have Shockwave's sentinels from G1 season 2

    Mindset, Deep Dive, Body Block and...the Hubcap repaint (Downshift? Can't remember what the name is for the life of me right now) could all potentially be Cons. I'm really considering getting Deep Dive and and Bodyblock and Reprolabeling them up.

    When i first saw images of deepdive i automatically thought Con due to his color scheme. And with Mindset i do not think that mold works as an autobot at all. I love hailstorm and i think mindsets colorscheme looks good but the mold as an autobot just does not work imo.

    All the Generations cons make up for the RTS bots, at least from what I've bought so far.

    The Fallback/Brawn mold looks nothing like Brawn or Outback to me. I'd have no trouble at all re-purposing them as Decepticons.

    G2 laser prime. the headsculpt, sword, and shoulder piece (especially the sword) just doesn't look "good guy" or "hero" to me. What with the flames on the truck hood and all. I know he's "supposed to be" prime, but looking at that mold IMO fits better with the name "nemesis".

    Deep Dive and Bodyblock seem like they should be Decepticons to me, just going by their color and the fact that the original figures were Autobots.
