    Hey all.

    I'm considering getting back in the game of painting and conversion, and I'm currently casting my eye on trying my hand at some characters from the 1988 lineup, the Masterforce anime.

    I need some help with suggestions on good base figures to start making these guys from. They don't need a slavish adherence to the altmode or transformation, but I'm listing the original altmodes for convenience:

    Lightfoot/Getaway (Mazda RX7)
    Ranger/Joyride (Buggy)
    Road King/Slapdash (Forumla racer)

    Cab/Hosehead (Firetruck)
    Goshooter/Siren (Mazda RX7 cop car)
    Minerva/Nightbeat (Porsche 959 "ambulance")

    I've seen some nice customs of Metalhawk's inner robot from Universe Cyclonus, which works out. Don't think there's any extant molds that would work for the other pretenders (Diver, Lander, Phoenix, Dauros, Blood, Gilmer) or the Decepticon Headmaster Juniors, though?

    Any suggestions welcome.

    Hehe, those aren't the ones I need suggestions for (listed the ones I am mainly looking at), but here they are:

    Pretender - Transformers Wiki

    Their altmodes don't look like anything.

    Cab/Hosehead (tough one, Universe Inferno or RTS Grapple, not many rigs of this nature out recently)
    Goshooter/Siren (Generations Red Alert)

    KOToys used to carry this weird knockoff hybrid of the Classics Prowl and Sunstreaker mold. It basically had the door wings from Prowl and car roof chest from Sunstreaker. Seems like the perfect choice for Lightfoot.
