    Having recently re-watched RotF, I find myself wishing they'd make a figure to represent the Decepticons who show up for the big battle at the end. The problem is, it seems pretty unlikely they'd make a new figure for nameless, vehicle-less, Decepticon cannon fodder. The only way I could see it happen is if they used an existing mold, and the only one that's even close is the Protoform Optimus from the first movie. What do you think? With a new paint scheme, could that mold work as one of these guys:

    That could be pretty cool, but I doubt they would sell well with kids.

    i figured using all those voyager TFTM megatron bots for those guys pictured above...scale is about right and the head shape fits alot of them in their close up shots....

    He has the right limbs for them. I wish I had bought more than one. But I didn't think I would start customizing back then.

    Trans-scanning Bumblebee and Optimus prime work as well. You may as well have a Black protoform Nemesis Prime. Do not forget Protoform Starscream. That toy has more sharp edges than Prime.
    That picture reminds me, we also need a Bonecrusher clone toy. Bonecrusher is one of the most valuable deluxe toys ever made. I am sure a repaint would sell well.
