    I am trying to put together a new team of Combaticons. So far, it's obvious...

    Universe Ultra Onslaught
    Animated Deluxe Swindle
    Movie deluxe Brawl
    ROTF Voyager Grindor (as Vortex)

    But who can I use as Blast Off? He needs to be a logical update of G1 and he needs to be relatively inexpensive. Got any choices??

    Classics Astrotrain? The colors seem similar enough to one of the RiD versions of the Blast Off figure (I'm thinking that grey urban set that was a Walmart exclusive). Plus he could also remain as Astrotrain when needed for the Classics/Universe shelf.

    It's not quite a space shuttle, but what about a Cybertron Vector Prime? A little paint, some customizing....

    or for that matter, Cybertron Soundwave.

    I'm using Astrotrain.

    What I need is a Vortex. Sadly, Blackout/Grindor/TRU Whirl is really my only choice.

    Astrotrain with a new head, and moded wings would be a great Blast-off.

    So I bought my Grindor today. I really like him and the color is better suited for Vortex than Blackout was. Very cool figure but I am a little disappointed there are missiles or anything!

    Nothing special, just thought I'd add a pic of my Modern Day Combaticons.
    I never really take pics of my bots so I thought I would share. Still searching for a "Blast Off" and I have ALMOST decided on Universe Storm Cloud. Doesn't really look like he'll fit but oh well...I kinda like Stratosphere, but he's an Autobot and he doesn't look great in bot mode IMO.

    Swindle, Grindor and Brawl need new heads, and then they would be perfect.
