    Looking at the Cyber Slammers, this thought crossed my mind, aside from the lack of legs (and really, that's not such a big deal for the Throttlebots)- these guys would be good kitbash fodder for the Throttlebots and the Battlechargers- the g1 action feature is still there.

    Classic Camaro Bumblebee- with a new head, this could be Runabout and Runamuck
    Concept Camaro Bee- Goldbug! I'm not sure about the other chargers though, maybe Jazz or Barricade?

    you ask me the classics bumblebee mold could easily be repainted and rereleased a multiple number of times over eas each of the throutlebots.

    good idea though on using the more modern day camaro movie bumblebee as runamk and runabout.

    I'm a bit of a novice at customizing but I've done both Runabout and Runamuck from the classics Bumblebee mold. I found new heads and other than that just repainted. I thought it worked out OK. Thye would surely work for the Throttlebots as well.

    Yeah, Classics BB is a perfect choice for the battlechargers. I've been trying to find a Cliffjumper on clearance just for that. I bet somebody with the skills could dremel out the feet and install a little wind-up mechanism or motor hooked up to the front wheels...Pull him back, release and watch him roll.
