    ..What would it be based on and what would some of the figures be repaints/remoldings of?

    The only rules for this are:

    It only contains figures from Armada, Energon, Cybertron, Classics, and Classics/Universe 2.0.

    But it may use any molds from those lines, even if it's already been used in an official Botcon.

    Always a fun thread. How about a Missing Members Of The Ark?

    Those of the original 18 Autobots (and however many Decepticons) that didn't get the CHUG treatment (so Jazz, Windcharger, Reflector are covered by Generations).

    Trailbreaker - black with red and yellow deco repaint (and new head) of the Classics Inferno mold (even has the nozzle hand, already)

    Hauler - (Cybertron) Mudflap, instead of the Classics Inferno / HFTD Grapple, just to be different

    Wheeljack - yeah, not sure if I can think of a mold from AEC that'd work... ;) 

    Brawn - apparently there was a repaint and retool planned for the OFTCC 2005 convention but, actually, I'd go for a repaint of Hot Shot (Armada or Classics 2)

    Gears - Cannonball / Red Alert (AEC), maybe a little head re-tool and a splash of blue, grey and red paint

    Huffer - Armada Optimus Prime (deluxe) repaint

    Then maybe some Seeker repaints? A lavendar one?

    Or...
    The missing Transformers Animated crew?

    This'd be a bit of a strain, probably make a bunch of bots that fall between CHUG and TFA, and would need vicious head re-tooling, but...

    Warpath - Any tank mold you like unless I can have the 2007 movie mold for Warpath, please?

    Scrapper - Energon Bonecrusher. Or Landmine. Either works for me

    Mixmaster - Deomlishor, the dump truck one, would need the skip / backpack replaced with a concrete mixing barrel but essentially transforms the same way and is suitably stocky

    Slipstream - Probably Energon Starscream

    Wasp - Cybertron Bumblebee from Generations, does that count? If not, AEC Blurr, kibbly but the head could be a repaint, not a retool

    Universe 2.0 Sunstreaker with a retooled head (see customs gallery for basic premise).

    I think a "Missing G1 Crew" is one of the things almost everyone wants as it is, though I was thinking of perhaps a Shattered Glass: Beast Wars set. I know that I'm technically breaking the "Only AEC/CHUG" rule, but there's really no other way to do this :p 

    Box Set Evil Maximals

    Optimus Primal
    - Use the TRU two-pack version. Keep the gorilla mode black, but turn one eye red and make the other one yellow with a jagged scar going across it. Robot mode; white portions turned purple, red portions turned yellow. Add another slash mark across the chestplate. Head should be black with the split faceplate being dark grey (keep the red eyes).

    Cheetor - Spots. Give him a leopard color scheme (character issues because he hates the mismatch). Make all blue robot mode parts a dark blue with yellow scratch marks. Red eyes.

    Rhinox - I realize this technically happened in the series, but I think giving the original mold a silver chestplate instead of gold would just be a ripoff. Dark grey beast mode instead of tan, make all of the gold-ish colored parts silver, and then turn every green portion red. Turn the eyes white too.


    Box Set Heroic Predacons

    Scorponok - Tan beast mode with dark brown legs and a black stinger. Beast mode eyes would be green. Red portions in the robot mode would be dark grey. Silver interior head same as the original, but make the mouth portion of it blue. Eye visor = green.

    Terrorsaur - Blue/white/grey blended color for beast mode. Turn all black parts in the robot mode silver and give him a dark blue head with white face.




    Non-box set exclusive 1 - Megatron. Red/grey beast mode with the black portions of the interior being blue. Keep the head silver and make the face a dark blue. Give it gold eyes instead of red.

    Non-box set exclusive 2 - Silverbolt. black beast mode with silver replacing the gold accents. Red eyes. Robot mode; turn the red circle in the chestplate green, turn the black parts gold, and turn the robot mode eyes red as well.

    Here's an idea I've been kicking around...

    Dawn of Futures Yet to Come

    When the Predacon Tripredacus Council learned the fate of their agent RAVAGE, they decided to retrieve his remains themselves and underwent an experimental procedure that bonded them into one monstrous, terrifying creature. But eavesdropping on their dark plan, the ancient, celebrated Autobot warrior GRIMLOCK resolved to stow away on their ship and foil them by any means necessary! Sabotaging their transwarp drive and causing them to travel back in time to the year 2025 A.D., Grimlock finds himself under attack from two fronts: TRIPREDACUS himself and his sadistic hound RETRAX, and the Autobots led by METALHAWK charged with protecting this era from Decepticon threats, of which they think he is one! Not to mention the fact that Ravage himself has been on line for a long, long, LONG timeā€¦

    Boxset Figure #1: Metalhawk redecoed from Universe 2.0 Silverbolt with a new head sculpt
    Boxset Figure #2: Joyride redecoed from Energon Cliffjumper
    Boxset Figure #3: Grimlock redecoed from Universe 2.0 Dinobot with a new head sculpt
    Boxset Figure #4: Ravage redecoed from Universe 2.0 Cheetor with a new head sculpt
    Boxset Figure #5: Retrax redecoed from Cybertron Unicron

    Souvenir Set #1: Tripredacus redecoed from Cybertron Scourge with a new head sculpt and Dinobot Swoop redecoed from Cybertron Brimstone
    Souvenir Set #2: Soundblaster redecoed from Cybertron Soundwave and Artfire redecoed from Energon Inferno
    Free Figure: Machine Wars Hoist redecoed from Energon Roadblock

    I would love to see a G1 Prime or Classics Prime painted in movie colors, but pin striping is a must.
