So, my goal is to collect or convert as many G1 homage Legends-sized figure as possible. Ultimately, I'm trying to match as much as I can of the 1985 Autobot/Decepticon and 1986 Autobot/Decepticon catalogues. These were the years as a kid that I was most into Transformers -- they were a huge part of my childhood. Why Legends size? Well, three reasons, really: 1) I've always loved small, miniaturized toys; 2) I'm moving overseas to Switzerland in two months, which means I'll have a smaller apartment and much less storage space; and 3) with the release of the new RTS Legends/Asia Exclusive Legends, there's finally enough of a critical mass of these that it's just a matter of filling in the gaps. So, here's my status of what I have and what I'm planning to do or trying to find. Let's start with 1984: --- Autobot Minicars Brawn: Universe Legends Brawn with Reprolabels Bumblebee: RTS Bumblebee Huffer: iGear MW-02 Rager (needed) Cliffjumper: Henkei Cliffjumper (needed) Windcharger: TFP CV Legions Bumblebee, repainted (planned) Gears: ??? Autobot Cars Wheeljack: TFP CV Legions Wheeljack Trailbreaker: RTS Trailcutter with Reprolabels Ironhide: TFP CV Commander Ironhide Ratchet: TFP CV Legions Ratchet Hound: Universe Legends Hound with Reprolabels Mirage: Conversion/repaint from Energon Legends Galvatron Sunstreaker: ??? Jazz: Universe Legends Jazz with Reprolabels Sideswipe: ??? Bluestreak: Asia Exclusive Silverstreak Prowl: RTS Prowl with Reprolabels Autobot Commander Optimus Prime: RTS Prime, naturally, with Reprolabels (and WST Optimus' blaster and trailer) Decepticon Planes Skywarp: Dollar General Starscream, manually repainted (planned) Starscream: Dollar General Starscream, with headswap from RTS Starscream and Reprolabels Thundercracker: Asian Exclusive release Thundercracker Decepticon Communicator and cassettes Soundwave: WST Soundwave (needed) Ravage: Universe Ravage with Reprolabels (from Hound set) Decepticon Leader Megatron: RTS Megatron with Reprolabels --- So there are three of them I'm still trying to track down, and five that I suspect I need to convert (one, Mirage, in progress). I have to admit that I'm totally stumped on Gears. Does anyone have any suggestions on this one? Maybe, maybe a repainted 2007 movie legends Ironhide? I think TFP Legions Bumblebee will make a very good Windcharger, with only some minor conversion necessary to replace the head, and some red paint. Consider: Both have the same "hood/grille becomes the chest" robot mode, and similar looking vehicle modes. I've got some ideas for the Lamborghini twins, but I'd be really interested in hearing what other people think. The toys I'm considering converting are: 1) TFP Legions Knockout -> Sideswipe -- this would mimic the hood/chest design of G1 Sideswipe, and wouldn't be a hard repaint 2) Energon Legends Bumblebee -> Sunstreaker -- this looks a lot like G1 Sunstreaker, especially if you add some silver to the engine block behind the compartment, and isn't bad in robot mode. Hard to come by, though. 3) DOTM Cyberverse Mirage -> Sideswipe/Sunstreaker -- the paint is more Sideswipe, but the uncovered engine block on the back seems more Sunstreaker. I could add a spoiler, paint it yellow, and I think it'd be close to Sunstreaker in vehicle mode. The Robot mode doesn't particularly homage either. Any other ideas? I've thought about using other sports car Legends (Soundwave, for instance) -- since it won't be possible to do a straight Lamborghini, but a sufficiently sleek and dangerous looking sports car would suit the characters, still.
