    I don't think I've ever seen that, you'd probably be the first.

    Though, wouldn't Universe 2.0 Sideswipe probably be the best option for a classics A. Wheeljack?

    yeah,considering their similarities. also the rotf skystalker mold would be perfect for Wind Sheer,People don't ever think of that. reason being is that "powerlinx" Jet pack mode i made with those two molds. most armada-based customs should be ALWAYS come with a partner,Minicon or Scout Class Minicon Upgrade.

    I'm confused. i thought Wheeljack with swords was a "Prime" thing. Was that in Armada?

    Wheeljack in Armada used his "missiles" as swords/batons in a few episodes.

    I honestly think that the Drift mold would be better suited for an update to Armada Blurr. I'm getting way more of a ninja and sniper vibe from that mold, which fits that particular Blurr character a lot better.

    hell it could work for armada blur and armada wheeljack
    with enough tweaks to drifts figure transformation wise youy could get 2 differnat enough bots out of the same figure to bash up as armada wheeljack and armada blurr

    I think this is a good idea. However, I think that the Univese 2.0 Sideswipe mold would lend itself a bit better for the concept in both modes.

    Gonna have to throw my vote in with the Universe Sideswipe mold. Wheeljack was based off of G1 Sideswipe in the first place, so I don't know why, other than the swords, you'd want to make him out of Drift. You can't just give Drift's swords to a repainted Sideswipe/Red Alert?
