    I´m trying to scale down my collection in the future and one display I want to have for sure is the Lost Light Crew. So which toys various lines will work?

    Well, Classics line would work for the most part.

    You would need the obvious ones. Drift, Hot Rod, Sunstreaker, Ultra Magnus. So on and so forth.

    Do you want to keep the design aesthetics of MTME? Or do you just want "best design" for each character? I think you could do a pretty decent job of filling out most of the crew from the Classics/Universe/Generations line, with a little 3P mixed in.

    Classics Rodimus
    Classics UM with CC armor
    iGear Medical Specialist
    Generations Drift
    Generations Cyclonus
    iGear not-Swerve OR GDO Swerve
    Generations Red Alert with Beezleboss addons

    A least thats a start...

    I try to vary. For example it´s more likely that I will acquire Prime Magnus than City Commander for monetary reasons.

    Well then I would say Animated Rodimus would fit in there nicely too, and since we don;t have any other inexpensive options, Cyberverse Tailgate.

    I'd say you can't build the crew of the Lost Light, the artwork and designs are so unique with their own aesthetic I don't think you can get a decent representation using the toys already available on the market.
    Hasbro needs to do it's own toyline, preferably pairing Nick Roche with Eric Seibenaler (the ex-TF design guy who worked DJW designs into real figures on TFA), and what better way to launch a toyline based on Nick Roche's artwork than by releasing a DVD movie of LSOTW which leads into a Lost Light TV series.

    And then I woke up.

    While the style can't be replicated without new toys aimed at doing that style, I think we have many of them in some Classics form.

    We're MISSING Brainstorm, Chromedome, Skids, Tailgate, Rung, and Fortress Maximus. Among others.

    more than that Red Alert in no way resembles any previous toy! of all the MTMTE Cast, I'd love an aesthetically matching Red Alert!

    IMHO, FoC magnus is more "Magnus-y" if a little small.

    Either way, he's going to be my Classics Magnus until we get a bigger and better Classics Magnus that is a straight up white repaint.

    As other said, this will be really tough as what we have doesn't at all resemble the aesthetic of the crew. We really need a new toyline for this.

    Ultra Onslaught with TFCon exlcusive Headrobots Stronghold upgrade fills that spot nicely

    Like I said, I'd go for having the characters rather than torturing myself over asthetic.

    Red Alert with my Renderform kit works just fine for me.

    Yeah same for me. Tho FOC Magnus is kinda small and Prime Magnus has the right imposing size, all it needs is a new gun.

    Better to PM the details.

    I get that Prime Magnus is the right size, but he just doesn't look much like Magnus to me.
