    So I'm at work, which is exactly where I want to be for 12 hours on a Friday night/Saturday morning, and my mind turned to the new FOC toys, as they are what I'm anticipating the most right now. I got to thinking about Bruticus, and my mind quickly drifted towards Computron, which is as it should be. I got to thinking: how could we get a Computron in as few new molds as possible, and in a way that might encourage Hasbro to put out the other SC combiners?

    Well, here's what I'm thinking:

    Scattershot-new fighter mold, could be remolded/repainted into Silverbolt.

    Strafe-we already have Blast-Off, and that Topspin head is nice. However, a new mold wouldn't be so bad, and could be repainted/remolded into other Aerialbots.

    Nosecone-pretty much repaint Twin Twist.

    Lightspeed-if not Swindle remold, then a new mold, so as to apply to the Stunticons.

    Afterburner-new mold motorcycle, remold/repaint into Groove.

    You'll notice that I left tons of room for the other SC combiners. I'm out of time on my break, so I leave it to you. What ways could we use the existing molds, and possibly the molds on my list, to get to the rest of the SC combiners?

    I'd rather they made new molds that actually looked good combined.

    I like the idea of more FoC scramble city combiners. Just as long as they're not all Bruticus repaints.

    WFC Scattershot and WFC Silverbolt look totally different...

    Perhaps starscream can be retooed into silverbolt.
    I too would prefer that hastak do entirely different molds, but they have shown that that simply isn't happening .

    Actually, I like your idea. Make 2-3 molds for each torso, two arms and two legs (with the Bruticus molds already taking up some of the slots), then mix-match for different sets/teams, or create your own combiner. If only we could get a set for different heads, too.

    Heh, that kind of sounds like what Hasbro did with the Energon combiners. As long as they're done right, I wouldn't have a problem with it.

    I hope we'll get more of them. Preordered G2 and retail Bruticai, really excited for Ruination, just wish it wasn't such a long wait until all of these are in my hands. :)

    Wow, alot of comments before I could reply. This will make for a long post.

    Yeah, in a way, I agree. However, since I know we're stuck with what we got for now, and I know they aren't gonna make a new Bruticus on top of individual molds for every TF that was originally an individual mold, so I'm trying to think of a way we could make the best of things.

    Okay, I'm referring to the Techobot Scattershot being brought into the WFC/FOCverse with a toy, not Scattorshot, which is a Cybertron character originally. I figured since I mentioned the Scramble City thing at the start of my post that it would be evident, but apparently I was wrong.

    Okay, the SS mold would have to be so extensively retooled in order to that it'd be cheaper to make a new mold. That's regardless of whether you'd be intending it as simply a limb or as the centerpiece.

    Kind of what I was hoping for. Hell, look at the minor differences in Jazz and the remold to Sideswipe, and it looks like a completely different toy. Apply that to the Stunticons and Aerialbots as far as limbs go, and you see what I mean.

    Also thinking that we're also damn close to a Defensor as we stand. Maybe a new car mold for Streetwise, repaint/remold Swindle into First Aid, Vortex into blades, new mold for Groove, and repaint/remold Onslaught into Hot Spot. Hell, even a new centerpiece that could be remolded as Motormasterbreath. Tons of possibilities.
