    Thinking about replacing my springer with warbot defender and also placing tfa arcee in this group.

    Obviously I have:

    Magnus
    Hot Rod
    Arcee
    Wheelie
    Kup
    Blurr
    Springer

    What do you think of TFA arcee over the energon version? Should I get the TIT Rodimus to take classics rodimus place? Would warbot defender look better?

    I'm going to go ahead and voice my personal opinion knowing I'll probably be slammed for it in, oh, two posts.

    Leave Hot Rodimus. It's simply a better toy overall than the (or really any) Titanium. Plus there's still the possibility of the Protector armor from FansProject.

    Both Energon Arcee and Animated Arcee are crap fill-ins. And neither one really evokes a proper geewun Arcee look.

    A lot of people are really into the Warbot, but I'm not one of them. I just don't find the thing that impressive. If you really want a triple-changing Springer, then I guess it's alright, but I don't find either of those modes all that great looking. Still a "helicopter" body on wheels and a "car" with rotors.

    Your Blurr is, I guess, the best substitute out currently. Though I don't think it's all that great a figure, and headsculpt aside isn't very "Blurr."

    And I never saw Breakdown working for Kup. Ever. Too many things just going against it. Size, alt mode, headsculpt... It just doesn't work for me.

    I would make it Titanium Rodimus [until FP's armor add-on comes out], FP Springer, TFA Arcee, and TFA Blurr. Too bad there's not much that can be done with Kup yet.

    Any Animated with any Classics looks stupid.

    It's like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole.

    Keep the classics Hot Rod. The 6" RP figure isn't big enough to be a Rodimus Prime.

    I agree with what was said abotu Arcee, Kup and Blurr. I don't think they fit in that group. Maybe substituting TFA Blurr will make TFA Arcee look more in place.

    KUP? well there is yet to be a good update of him.

    Get Warbot he looks amazing next to UM and HR.

    Thanx

    Get Botcon Kup in there if you MUST have a Kup. Use Animated Blurr, and Defender. Keep Animated Arcee and for kicks, pop in G1 Perceptor and Blaster. Or just try G1 Kup, since he's an old codger anyway.

    Then you'll have an Autobot City setup! :D

    He has neither. The blades are stored in sword mode under the car, and the wheels are mostly tucked away in helicopter mode.

    I'm going with Energon Arcee (goes well with Cyb Kupp).
    Springer looks fine to me, but if you really want him Warbot Springer would look nice too.
    Not really liking Cyb Blurr; head is too big.

    My favorite Arcee is the 2007 Movie Arcee. I like the Animated line a lot, but I agree with the concencus that it really doesn't fit the Classics style at all. The two are apples and oranges (and I love them both, just not in a jumbled, fruit-salad way... I'm not sure what I meant by that, but I'm leaving it).

    And I would say that Warbot Defender haters would change their tune if they only had the $80 to spend on him. Yeah, you hate Warbot Defender like I 'hate' SG Prime (or hate that he costs $300 now). That said, I like the Universe Springer just fine in the context you placed him in. I'd take either one over the G1 brick, who is a sentimental favorite of mine but looks like green and gold poo next to the Universe or Fansproject efforts.

    I like the Armada/Cybertron Blurr mold a lot. I think he's a decent stand in - better, anyway, than Animated Blurr (who is also cool, but see my fruit salad comment above.)

    I'm not a fan even of the Botcon Kup. Cannonball's was the only paint job for that mold, and Red Alert was the only character that the arm extensions made sense on. Brakedown is just too tiny - he'd be talking to Magnus' kneecap. You know who I think would look cool as Kup in powder blue would be a Cybertron Smokescreen/Crosswise. You'd need a different head for him, maybe, but I think the mold would work well with a Kup color scheme.

    Remove Animated arcee's head and place the energon one on. (somehow)
    buy defender
    Wait for the protector armour for Rodimus
    add in masterpiece grimlock
    keep the other guys until suitable placements come in.
