    Okay, I have been trying to figure out which figure I should custom into a G1 Classics Quake.

    http://tfwiki.net/w2/images2/thumb/1/1b/Quake_cardart.jpg/300px-Quake_cardart.jpg

    Here's the thing... the Gigatron Botcon figure is a good choice since it's a tank, has the tank on his back and has a head that already looks like Quake. In fact if the blue lower shell were painted the maroon of Quake it would be very little work. Unfortunately the cost of the figure and the fact that I have never repainted a figure worry me. I'd hate to screw it up. Any suggestions? Maybe even a different mold?

    Easy! grab a cheap version of the figure, like bludgeon/banzai-tron, and paint it the way you like. the head doesn't really look like quake anyway...

    Why not just use the Deluxe Megatron and nab the head off of a Cybertron Hot Shot?

    That might be a good idea. I'd have to get past the tiny head (small deluxe) on the large body (voyager)... but it could work. Might seek out another option. Anyone know of some big headed deluxe?

    Take the united version of universe megatron (purple recolor of the tank mold) and swap out the head with generations warpath or better yet, use Quakes actual head from his original G1 toy, assumingit can be removed and installed on the figure I am proposing to use without it either falling offor restricting the transformation.......just a thought.....

    The head from ROTF Gears might work ..........even looks like quake a little as well, would not require too much extra painting, and may be large enough to work.....

    You could also use generations warpath, cybertron defense scattershot, or
    even G2 Megatron as well.....
