    I Have somewhat of an idea inspired by New Rodimus

    423px-TFGRodimus.jpg
    Rumor has it New Rodimus would have basically been GodBomber for Star Convoy, So since I have a Chaos On Velocitron Rodimus and own a LG GodBomber I might try to to come up with some sort of Leader Class Rodimus that can combine with LG Ginrai (Or Better Powermaster Optimus)

    (By the way my use Fire Guts GodBomber as color ref)

    This is amazing! I've always wanted to see a custom or idea for New Rodimus. You might have to figure out some way to make his alt mode longer and flip around his robot mode though.

    9DAD4F8D-301D-4A9E-856D-87394F11B3C7.jpeg Well, I’ve drawn out some concept sketches.

    And here’s a Proof of concept
    79BA6A37-7425-44C6-B246-96A1EB3E64DC.jpeg

    I’m going to Use DX9 Carry as a color ref
    Only two things holding me back be buying a second LG GodBomber and redesigning The Cab to look more the the sketches

    Here's the colored look
    I was unsure if I should have made Powermaster Optimus have Star Convoy's colors
    What do yo guys think?

    I think you should just go all the way and give PMOP Star Convoy colors. Anyways, it looks great! Really excited to see this happen. :)

    Might use this as ref for Star Optimus (What I think star convoy would have been called in the states) but i May go an extra mile and get a PC-16 Ginrai and give him a G1 toy/Marvel comics Optimus paint job. My inspiration for that is this:

    Also digibash Star convoy was by: digibash.

    That would be really cool. I also like your idea of having Star Convoy/Optimus basically being an upgraded Powermaster Optimus.

    So aside from making Rodimus Bomber which might be pretty easy, If I’m gonna make new Star Optimus out of a LG Super Ginrai I’m gonna need to find stuff like

    A Seccond PC-16 and PC-15 which are getting harder and more expensive to get

    Either a another LG Super Ginrai, Deluxe Ginrai or Magnus Prime

    And someway to make this Star Convoy chestpeice

    You may be able to do something similar if you take the chest off of a POTP Optimus, but beyond that, I'm not too sure what else you could use. If the voyager TR Optimus were leader class it would be perfect.

    EDIT: Maybe you could make something from styrene or something like that.

    Actually I think I pull off the whole chest thing. Now my only issue is getting that God Ginrai pack and the perfect effect kits

    This looks fantastic design, although there is space for improvement in design, but good work.

    Best things you could use would probably be DOTM leader class Sentinel Prime or the OSKO Hot Spot on sirtoys.
