    I thought of doing a custom toy of the character(s) Rack N Ruin using Siege Cog. What do you think of this idea TFW2005?
    Here are some photos, I was not able to change the blue parts to green.

    Two legged robot mode.

    Four legged robot mode.
    I have considered one of two options for a connection piece, a third copy of Cog and using the robot mode pelvis, or the black laser gun that comes with Titans Return voyager class G2 Optimus Prime and Octane.

    Just my luck Hasbro announces Rack N Ruin will finally get a toy in 2019 at New York Toy Fair in February.

    IMO Siege Sixshot would be a better basis as I'm a stickler for their canon alt mode of Cybertronian mini-jets and he looks a tad more aerial.

    Plus his head de-horned looks more like theirs to me.

    If it wasn't just a recolour and had significant retooling (gotta have hammer and anvil hands, right), I'd be ALL over this!

    Like reflector they could release them individually, you'd have to buy two.

    Hmm, thinking of an army of interconnected cogs now or a circle of them surrounding a poor decepticon

    Ah, gotcha - thought that was some little known TF, but the only gearbox I saw on tfwiki was: Gearbox - Transformers Wiki

    I've never been excited about conjoined robots until today.

    Depends. Does this count in your books?

    Don’t even need remolded hands, just need the anvil and hammer to have a 5 millimeter port to peg onto the peg at the front of the hands.

    YES, but to make Rack N Ruin more interesting, I consider using the black laser gun that came with Titans Return Optimus Prime and Octane as a connection piece.

    I don't care how it's done, I would buy a Rack n Ruin figure in an instant. But I have a feeling if they did, Hasbro would do something similiar to what they are doing with Siege Reflector. You can have one figure on his own just fine but if you want the "complete" look, you have to buy a second Rack/Ruin figure.
