    Anyone adding Ancients, The Original 13 Transformers, to their collection? If so who are you using?

    Here's my list:

    Vector Prime from Cybertron Galaxy Force

    The Fallen from ROTF

    Universe Overload if he looks good enough

    Jhiaxus from the RiD line

    Dark Crumplezone as someone

    Leader Class Movie Megatron to use as Thunderwing

    Energon Sharkticon as someone

    Energon Omega Supreme, unless they release a Universe 2.0 Version of him

    Maybe Star Saber and Victory Leo as Brothers

    Universe 2.0 Dirge as someone



    I consider ones like Alpha Trion and Prima to be dead, also Alpha Trion has the same mold as Vector Prime and I don't want clashing molds.

    So tell us your list of Ancients.

    Why do you consider Alpha Trion dead? Because he merged with Vector Sigma? I think of him as someone who can return and seperate at will but then who knows?

    Because I don't feel like spending a ton of cash for his Botcon mold, I could get the vector sigma display kit and use it for him and Vector Sigma :p

    Yeah his Botcon toy is a bit much. Don't blame you there and that Vector Sigma would work just fine.

    You could try converting a Titanium Scourge if you did fancy an Alpha...

    Dunno about Ancients, but it'd be awesome if they did a Classics Last Autobot.

    Does no one else have a list?

    Mines actually full, has all 13. 11 figs and it mentions 2 who are dead/gone. Prima died and passed on the matrix and Alpha Trion merged with Vector Sigma and died or something cuz he was in the matrix later.

    So you're also considering Star Sabre and Victory Leo as members of the Thirteen as well? Or are you using them as stand-ins for actual originals?

    I never really thought about adding the Thirteen to my collection, to be honest. But if I did, I'd start with a look at the TFWiki to see who's already in and possibly in:

    Definite members:
    Prima (I actually have no idea how I'd handle this, as there's not really any proper depictions of him to determine what he looks like - I'd have to completely wing it)
    the Fallen (were I to have a Fallen, I'd probably either wait to see what ROFL turns up, or take a leaf out of AX23's book and kitbash Universe Onslaught)
    Vector Prime
    the TFCC exclusive combiner (Rather than get the exclusives, I'd probably go for a solid-colour repaint of the equivalent figures)

    Possible members:
    Liege Maximo (not a clue; to be honest if I were to even try him, I'd probably knock him up out of Bionicle bits... :p )
    the Last Autobot (I dunno. I'm not even sure if he's not Vector Prime...)
    Maccadam
    Alpha Trion (probably either a heavy Vector Prime kitbash, to distinguish the two, or a Tit Scourge one)
    Boltax

    I dunno, there's so little known about the Thirteen, and there's not even enough likely candidates (yet) to make up the full list, so at least there's a lot of scope for making up your own characters.

    On the other hand, there's a bunch of material coming up soon from IDW (and IIRC, Hasbro are looking at some Thirteen-based figures, though I may be on a wrong'un there), so if you do plan to make up a figure collection based on them, you might do well to wait till the comic series is out to see what that comes up with.

    I was planning to wait on the comic but those were my ideas so far.


    As of this moment the only ones I plan to use as ancients are GF Vector Prime and Universe Dirge.
