    Hey! Does anyone have any good suggestions on how to mix and match the ROTF and Energon Aerialbots to make a decent G1 accurate Superion? Just for future reference, thanks!

    You'll need the FP Snowman add-on kit for a start. Which I do have... and my Superion is indeed a mix and match of the RotF and Energon figures, but I don't know their names so I can't be of much help I'm afraid. I just know I have the RotF Silverbolt main figure with a red and a grey arm, and black/red and white/blue legs. Hope that is of some use!

    There's an abdomen filler which makes the torso more stable.

    yeah i was more thinking hands and feet would be epic shouldnt be to hard but my computer dosnt have the power to make the 3d models

    if i did i would just make one foot and hand then mirror said hand and foot also what would be epic is if some one made a slip over head like the g1 verson to fit over the little robot head

    but im just dreaming now lol

    I'm pretty sure process has a good configuration photographed already...

    Maybe he'll chime in.

    I personally go with the Snowman FP kit with the Energon Superion, but I know there are some more accurate combinations.

    Thanks for the responses! Anyway, I was thinking about ROTF Silverbolt (body), two Energon Sky Shadows (legs), and two Energon Windrazor (arms) along with the Snowman kit. Doubles of the limbs should work on the opposite side as they're nothing but redecos of their counterparts. But I'm just visualizing this. Anyone have the parts to snap a picture of this combo?

    Edit: Actually after looking at a G1 Superion, I forgot that the limbs aren't symmetrically colored. But the combo I posted above just looks so good in my head right now!

    Process made an Abdomen Filler for the Storm Jet / Silverbolt mold.

    And thedreaded1 made Arms that attach to the Jet limbs:

    manufactsure made a sweet Energon to G1 conversion for the bot modes in 2006 too.
    Example of one of the bots:

    Mind you, the Superion custom he made far predates the Fansproject kit... which is why you still see the rather awkward limbs. Still he did a fantastic job.
