    I'm working on ideas for a MP reflector.
    I've been racking my brain for ideas who to use as bases rather than scratchbuild.

    I want the transformation to be similar to their G1 counterparts, where the legs would fold onto their back and the arms fold forwards (to form the front of the camera)

    So far, the best I can come up with would be C. Landmine. He's got the best legs for this, however, the arms would need more work. Any other suggestions? There's got to be a TF out there where the arms fold to the front and the legs bend around against the back.

    Tit Soundwave! dang - he's perfect. Thanks!!!!!

    EDIT: after searching this figure seems expensive and rare. Are the legs able to fold to his front, rather than the sides, with modding?

    what about energon barricade. His arms might be an issue (they fold on the sides) but his legs do fold all the way around if you do it the right way.

    I think this is more suited to GD because you're merely discussing ideas and suggestions, you haven't actually even started a project yet.

    You want only deluxes or other sized bots can work?

    Cybertron Prime can work for that, by removing the super feet and waist panel, and using his back as the chest, the arms fold up forward

    Also Cybertron Defense Scattorshot could work too

    i was thinking masterpiece sized, MP, lol. sweet, this is going to be awesome.

    titanium soundwave's arms are perfect, and i'm sure the legs can be modded, but i must warn you, tit. SW's legs suck really bad. i would suggest using different legs altogether.

    just my 2 cents, good luck mike, and cant wait to see some wip pics

    Well, fiddling around with E Barricade. He's got an awesome bot mode, and fairly inexpensive and easy to find. The only major work area I see on him would be hollowing out the chest so that the head can slide down into it. The way I have him transformed, his fists and front of legs would become the front of the camera...or....flip it around and I can use the back (which is a clean slate) for the front, and not worry about the fists showing at the camera's bottom.

    Well, I took 2 pics, since this topic was moved, I can't attach them.

    but here are the 2 possible "alt" transformations for E barricade, I think I am going to roll with this concept.

    looking at the 2 side by side, I think the top one might work better, it already has a camera look to it. I will mod out the feet and put smaller feet on there, which will stick out about as far as the fists do. Looks like the crotch on one of the side guys will be the button to take a picture, how lucky is he?

    could make a simple hinged flap to cover the fists... why not use the first pic's way for the two outside bots, and the second one for the middle bot?

    great ideas (x2) I was thinking a hinged flap that would sit on 1 arm yet long enough to cover boths fists while in alt mode. I am unsure about the middle bot, I think I want to go with the cartoon variation, where they are all very similar, however one has a lens on his chest. (the green/gray/purple set) not like the toy (red/green/blue)

    well that's how I was picturing it. doing it how I suggested gives you a lens-chested middle bot, and the two outter bots nearly identical, and yet they're all similar in that one simply transforms yet faces the opposite direction.

    Energon Steamhammer would go great alongside Energon Barricade. The shovel could be the flash module.

    Maybe a SS mold for the Spectro & Spyglass.
    and E Barricade of Viewfinder?
