    Went up to my attic and brought out all my autobots to organize, but I want to finish a few customs. Classics Gears, who'll get a few pics here soon, is one of them.

    I swapped a RotF gears head with one that came from reveal the shield bumblebee, which will need touch ups to look like the G1 Gears. The remains were put together and I got this guy. Figured he'd make a good original character who may, or may not, die in the front lines.

    I haven't got any original ideas, though, so I need help. Name suggestions, paintscheme ideas, all this and more would help me a lot. And sorry, but I don't want to make Goldbug, even though this autobot is a dead ringer as is. I will update whenever some input settles in. Please help. Oh and Convoy says Goodbye.

    LOL what a riot! I knew that was going to be the first thing on EVERYBODY's mind, but I really want that to be the LAST option, because it is the most obvious thing in the world. Please everyone, Keep those ideas coming! I'd really appreciate it!

    if you're willing to paint him a different colour you've got far more existing characters than Goldbug and bumper.

    What about Ironfist.
    The head works, but the body is off. It could work though.
    Especially because you gave him that big honkin' cannon.

    I don't have a single idea in my head right now, but I can say make a fan created character name. If not go with the others' suggestions.
