    Doesn't look too bad at all. If I were an autobot I know I'd be shaking.

    I guess it's about how he/she mixed the lines.. Animated, G1, and movie.

    I'm not sure it's worthy of it's own thread, but what I know?

    It might depend on which Autobot you were, especially when the Constructicons decide to combine!

    Honestly, while I don't think G1 Constructicons, Movie Megs, and Animated Shockwave "fit" together well as far as aesthetics go, I could certainly see a storyline (such as the one from Battle Rollar's pack-in comic) where such could take place.

    That being said, Hasbro certainly has show us instances where figures from other lines have been re-purposed for another. While Hasbro has their reasons for doing this, there are times where it works really well. RiD Scourge is a good example.

    Also, since that's the case, I use Classics-Generations as a sort of "catch-all" for my collection now, since the aesthetic is much the same. Energon Downshift is shaking right now, though. He knows that his replacement is on the way :lol

    Exactly the reason.

    I could have put this in the "something cool" thread but then someone would have complained because I'm not a photographer.

    To some extent I agree with the OP.

    I have movie Starscream with G1 Megatron on my desk all the time.

    But, eventaully ... I know I will get DOTM Megatron and then... you know..
