    I mentioned awhile back, I made a list of all the Movie Characters and I was going to buy the figures in there G1 forms. So far out of the list of 20 characters (exclude Brains) I've got

    Optimus
    Bumblebee
    Jazz
    Ironhide
    Ratchet
    Sideswipe
    Arcee
    Wheelie
    Jolt
    Mirage
    Wheeljack
    Leadfoot

    So all that's left is

    Skids
    Mudflap
    Chromia
    Elita-1
    Jetfire
    Roadbuster
    Topspin
    Sentinel Prime

    Now Sentinel was probably the hardest I could get because they is no Sentinel Prime in a G1 toy. At first I was going to replace him with Classic Ultra Magnus, because he was originally him.

    But then I thought about the Kre-O Sentinel Prime.

    I mean does he look G1ish enough?

    And adding a Kre-O to transformable toys won't make a Difference, will it?



    Edit: Also, this would give me 2 reasons to buy Kre-O Sentinel Prime

    1) To add Snetinel Prime to my movie into G1 characters collection.

    2) I can finally have my Kreon Soundwave.

    KreO with a G1 shelf? It'll stick out. There is no other option, unless you like the KreOn. Sentinel is pretty faithful, head sculpt wise, but the rest is pretty movie-ish.

    G1 Sentinel Prime had inverted Rodimus colours. Yellow with Orange Highlights.

    ^That looks like a customized G1 Rodimus Prime. There was no G1 Sentinel Prime toy.

    The big Kre-O is basically the movie design with the Classics-ized Animated head. The little Kreon is pretty G1. Reminds me of the Marvel comics SP.

    Kre-Os wouldn't fit in with any other toyline IMO.

    EDIT: By Movie characters in G1 form do you mean actual G1 toys or redesigns like Classics?

    That looks like a Rodimus Prime custom painted into Sentinel's colors.

    E:Crap, beaten.

    You can probably custom make a G1esque Sentinel Prime using the Kre-O head. Is it in scale with MP Rodimus?

    I think movie characters Kreo figures are a mix of g1 styling as well as movie styling. Big Prime is a great example clearly movie inspired but has a very g1 head sculpt. And the $8 Bee alt mode has some design cues from the movie like the stripes but his bot mode is more g1 inspired with the g1 head.

    Kre-Os are very cool, but I personally wouldn't put them in a display I intended to be of any specific continuity, because they're so visually distinct (in my eyes).

    Sentinel's Kreon look a lot like Blaster.
