    Okay, assuming they can do a recolor and head sculpt as a homage character, what one do you want to see first?

    Three suggested "something else" possibilities include Piranacon, Sentinel Maximus, Chromedome and Grimlock.

    A while back I overlapped the two fan digibashes for an Ultra Magnus and Armada Overload scheme... the result was well... Piranacon... can I vote for that?

    Overload, especially after seeing the hint in the TFCon thread. A new Heartmaster, that colour scheme and good to go. There have been some fantastic digibashes by process in Steelcore's review thread so check them out. The Discussion page seems to be stuck in some kind of broken *Still PENDING* loop.
    The mold really lends itself well to a lot of characters.

    Chromedome is the only one I would consider.

    Roadbuster, Chromedome, or even something off the wall like one of the Primes pre-Optimus

    Actually, with a trailer that forms armour and some tweaking to the main body, he'd make a bloody good Nova Prime.

    Keep it original character. The figure doesn't need some crappy 80s character to carry it.

    I agree that it should remain original and that they shouldn't designate it as any specific repaint. However there are only so many different color schemes to choose from. Someone will probably see whatever scheme they choose as derivative of an existing character.

    I was quite in doubt between Nemesis, which I voted for, and Roadbuster, the others I just either don´t know or don´t think they fit XD

    Make mine Roadbuster, with an appropriate headsculpt and bigass gun add-ons... with a Nemisis repaint a close second.

    i'd agree with Cylor--->Chromedome would be a good repaint.

    And as to those "Crappy 80's Characters.." I happen to like them. I grew up with those. and they are far better than anything CGI or Anime *shudder*

    My thoughts exactly.

    FP must hate money if they never make this happen by maximizing the mold via redeco's. XD

    I voted for Armada Overload, but I'd be good with Roadbuster.

    Repaint it to another original FP character. Repainting a 3rd party product, that was never intended to be an homage, into a familiar character doesn't make much sense to me.

    Originally I wasn't interested in SC at all, until I saw him with Assaulter and Defender. Now, I'd probably buy a few repaints (red/green/yellow/whatever), but it would never be an Ultra Magnus unless there's a trailer/upgrade.
