    Why does Inferno from the universe line look so blocky? Blockier than Classics wave 1 voyager prime, which came out two years ago?! I don't know, but the good thing about it is that hasbro/Takara actually has G1 in mind with classics 2.0. I Mean, we're getting a cartoon colored Deluxe Starscream soon! With that in mind, us kitbashers are already getting Ideas about what to do with the new universe figs. Here's my Idea. I will search for a random prime head to put on inferno, hopefully re-color wherever needed, and create a sweet retro Prime. I am looking forward to getting a couple of Universe inferno.

    Is anyone considering to re-color Universe cyclonus into Dirge colors like in the animation glitch in TF Season 3's Five Faces of Darkness?

    I had come up with a couple of different ideas for the mold when I first saw pictures of it from SDCC. Hot Spot and RID Prime were two of the better ones. I won't be surprised of we get a "Hot Zone" repaint of him (apparently can't use the name Hot Spot anymore) at some point. I'd rather RID Prime get a proper update of his own. I'd even be happy with a reissue with maybe better paint apps and what not (premium quality maybe?). Another idea I came up with, but would nee some modifying to do so, would be Motormaster.

    That would be sweet. He'd look awesome alongside of Universe Blades.

    Yeah what if you used Classics Prime's head? I think it would fit the asthetic better here. Maybe some blue pants.

    I think Hot Spot is a great idea as well

    He's Voyager sized, so right around the same size as Classics Prime.

    I was a never a big fan of the RID mold. I liked the Omega Prime, though. But a combiner with this guy would be pure win.

    I don't dig the Hot Spot idea, to be honest, it just doesn't look right for him. RID Prime worked much better as HS - I don't think he looks right with the whole cab-as-chest configuration.
