    So Hasbro's got me going down a path, and I need help.

    CHUG Springer has an Earth Helicopter Mode
    CHUG Galvatron has an Earth-Tank Mode
    CHUG Blurr has an Earth Car Mode
    CHUG Scourge has a Earth Bomber Mode
    CHUG Kup has an Earth Truck Mode.

    At first this irked my "Geeewun" sensibilities, but then my brain started clicking and I've got some figures picked to bring Roddy and Optimus into the same pattern. But I am STUCK on Cyclonus. The roster of the "core" 2010 Autobot cast is felxible, but if I'm going to have a "matched set," we need all 3 heralds of Unicron on the same page.

    I'd love to pick a figure that was at a scale where I could just swap-in Cyclonus's head from his CHUG figure, but push come to shove I'll take ANY good idea.

    WHO SHOULD EARTH MODE CYCLONUS BE MADE FROM????

    Rodimus already has an earth mode. Check out the attachment.

    As for Cyclonus..maybe a headswap onto HftD Terradive? Repaint it and voila.

    I know that technically Roddy is a real car but I willfully ignore that fact ;) 

    Hmmm Terradive might be great!

    Open to more ideas though I think he'll be hard to top...

    I'm currently working on a mod that turns ROTF Dirge/Jetblade into Cyclonus (best to use Jetblade coz he's part purple anyways). He doesn't even need a head swap due to the way his head transforms. The mod gives him his usual reverse wings, as well as changing the plane to better fit the outline of G1 Cyclonus. By that i mean the really long nosecone, bulky at the back, rear mounted reverse wings, etc.

    I'd post pics but school says no.

    If it were me, I would just do some modding to the Cyclonus jet mode. Maybe some cockpit work and minor body work.

    He looks pretty close to the Su-47 Berkut below:

    I was actually thinking about choppers, creating some kind of link between G1 Cyclonus and Armada Cyclonus...but I'm pretty much committed to Terradive now the idea just feels more awesome with each passing day :)

    *LOL* Some Spambot thought this thread was cool enough to repost in General Discussion...already locked, but I thought I was losing my mind for a minute when I saw it ;) 

    Anyway, thanks again for all the input, and I think I'm going with Terradive, but there have been a log of great ideas here!
