    When I was a kid, I loved the Micromaster Battle Patrol. Flak, Sunrunner, Big Shot, and Side Track. I really would like to do a custom version of these guys in all Deluxe class figures. Here's what I have in mind so far:

    Flak - HFTD Hailstorm
    Big Shot - Generations Darkmount
    Side Track - Generations Warpath
    Sunrunner - ???

    Any suggestions?

    I love that guy!!! But I want them all to be the same size... I wouldn't mind using voyagers and ultras though... That Wing Saber redeco along with Botcon Flak would work pretty well without modification. I just need replacements for Big Shot and Side Track.

    If you are going to custom paint these guys another possible use for Side track might be the Universe Roadbuster (from the two pack with Dirge) mold, orginally used for Cybertron defence Hotshot and also Botcon Springer.

    I am allways on the lookout for possible Micromaster homages to fit into my classics. I have been considering that Wingblade mold as Sunrunner and have Overload as Flak but then again I don't mind them being bigger then deluxes so much.

    Armada Demolishor
    Cybertron Unicron

    Deluxe-sized? How about Classics Tankor?

    Tankor

    Just remove some of the truck bits (though not the cab, since it forms the robot's feet) and you have a deluxe-sized, straight-winged prop plane that looks superficially like Sunrunner. Even the robot mode has a similar look to the legs, with beefy lower legs and spindly thighs.

    PCC Steelshot is the perfect Big Shot, IMO, but he is a little smaller than a deluxe so he may be a no-go for you.

    Just looking at the colors... Universe Hardhead would fit in the group with Wingblade and Overload... Hardhead would be an ok Side Track.. Even though he has wheels and not tracks... now all I need is a voyager or deluxe tank or mobile cannon with that green color scheme...

    Roadbuster would also fit in with this group... His shoulders make him look taller than he really is... maybe Roadbuster as Side Track and Hardhead as Big Shot

    Damn, why didn't i think of Hardhead :eek: 

    Ok, so we have;

    Flak - Universe Overload
    Sunrunner - Movie 2007 Wingblade
    Sidetrack - Universe Hardhead

    What about ROTF (voyager) Bludgeon as Big Shot?
    He'd need a new head and some repro Autobot symbols, but he's close enough.

    I would recomend against it. Even without the head and the con symbols, the whole undead Samurai motif still comes through pretty strongly in the chest and the way the armor forms. And the colors would be all wrong, too, since Big Shot isn't anywhere near green and orange.

    Someone mentioned Steelshot earlier, and the fact he's work as a Big Shot update is quite shockingly clear to me now. If you want anything better than that in a larger size class, you'll have to get something custom made because there just aren't that many brown semi-tanks in the Voyager classes and above.

    Yeah, you're right - back to the drawing board.
    The Japanese version is.

    I love the idea of Botcon Landshark joining the team as Big Shot!!! The colors are close enough.

    So Here's the lineup I believe I will try to put together... This is surely becoming my latest obsession with Transformers.... Must Have This Team!!!

    Flak - Universe Overload
    Sunrunner - Movie Wingblade
    Side Track - Universe Hardhead
    Big Shot - Botcon Landshark

    This could get expensive..... But that would be one kick ass team!!!!!

    Yeah, that should look pretty cool.
    I second the request for pics when you're done.
