    Cybertron Cannonball is a pirate, with a crew who but rarely return to Cybertron.
    The question is, who does Cannonball get out of your collection as a part of his crew of Energon-thirsty rogues?

    I'm giving him:
    - Seacons! God Neptune in Beast Wars Second was a group of pirates, even with a ship. So why not have them exist in the A-E-C continuity as pirates as well?
    - Demolishor! The "monocle" type design looks like an eyepatch, and he'd be the perfect muscle to have in a pirate crew.
    - Random Vehicons! They've no identity of their own, they're just decomissioned drones that Cannonball picked up on the Black Market to swell the ranks of his forces.
    - Identity undecided, but one random Decepticon repaint from Cybertron. Nobody on the show cast, not Hardtop, or Skywarp, but one of the others. Brushguard, perhaps? Essentially, they're someone sent to act as a liason between Cannonball and Megatron, and spend a lot of time being the butt of the jokes of the rest of the crew and generally fell very uncomfortable with their assignment.


    Now it's your turn! Who's in your pirate crew?

    SF, I'm terribly disappointed!

    For you of all people, to leave out Captain Shark... it just shivers me timbers.

    This is why I shouldn't post while in a hurry! Knew I'd forgotten someone.

    i say, shortround and tidalwave, maybe even thunderblast, and to be honest ransack and crumplezone would make a great addition

    Hmm, let's see.

    Cyb Lugnutz as the biker.
    RiD Prowl as the cop.
    Cyb Landmine as the construction worker.
    And... hmm, toughie. Let's go with BM Silverbolt as the Indian chief.

    There we go. The merry crew that can sail with Cannonball and sing about life in the Navy. :D

    No Silverbolt, what about that Stegosaurus Dinobot with the headdress and loin cloth thing. BAM! Instant Village People Transformers Botcon set. $300. What a deal.

    Man, I need to get on the ball and get a camera and post some pics. I assembled a motley crew (insert bad joke here) the day I picked up Cannonball. His crew's pretty large (somewhere around 30-40 figs.) and it's mostly TFs, but I also included some Battle Beasts, Rock Lords, and various other lines. I discovered that Thunderblast makes a pretty good right-hand woman for Cannonball, their color schemes seem to complement each other quite well. They already have a spaceship control room and someday I'm gonna build 'em all a massive ship to go with it (I've got lots of ideas, but no time).
