    Certain non-TF characters would be cool to see as Transformers. This is a thread for suggesting both characters and the toys that would be good to kitbash into them. Accessories might have to be custom made. Here's some of mine:
    Link (Twilight Princess): Cybertron Snarl
    Shadow the Hedgehog: Cybertron Megatron/Galvatron
    Metal Sonic: Movie Megatron (2007 Leader class)
    Zafira: Again, Cybertron Snarl.
    Hayate: Cybertron Optimus Prime (feminised slightly)
    Reinforce: Cybertron Wing Saber / \

    Can anybody suggest good starting-point toys for Sonic, Knuckles, Nanoha, Fate Testarossa, Signum Needes, and Shamal?

    Is this more of a radicons thing?

    I'd love to see someone do Easter Bunny Cyclonus or Jay Jay the Jet Plane Starscream.

    My suggestions would be Universe Silverbolt (the plane) as Arios Gundam, and the Airazor in that 5 pack a GN Sefer. Both of which i'm either making (Arios)or finished (Sefer). :D 

    I don't really see why Sonic would really need a different mold than Shadow. Other than colour scheme, they look really similar. Given that Knuckles is more of a brawler than a speed based character, why not Crumplezone? Gives him the speedy car mode, while packing some punch.

    As for all the Nanoha characters, what would they turn into?

    It's kinda hard to make any shinki figure using a TF mold, because most of the fact that there aren't many female transformers...

    Although, one of the Arcee molds (Energon, or the 07 Movie) would work for Ach and Yda.

    There is always that boat chick from Cybertron you could use, and since she was a shell former than you could basically stuff anything in there you want as long as it fits XD

    I just thought of something for Hayate (and Reinforce). Also, which Edward are you talking about, Howling? Crumplezone for Knuckles does sound good, Treadshot. Now, there are a few reasons why I picked that Megatron mould for Shadow.
    1. Even with most of the spikes gone, it's still got that potential for being mistaken for a villain. Shadow looks like he may be villainous, but is in fact rather heroic.
    2. The Death Machine Gun could easily be modified into the Shadow Rifle.
    3. The car mode is sleek, super-fast and powerful, and the jet/starfighter mode also suits Shadow.
    Sonic, on the other hand, I'm not sure what to use.

    One last thing: whiskeytango, that was lame.

    Or, Shadow could be made from a Cybertron Sideways, and Sonic from Cybertron Blurr (or the armada blurr, if you like the minicon).]

    Sonic out of Animated Blurr would be good as well, perhaps even Animated Jazz.

    Good luck feminising the Cybertron Optimus Prime mold. You'll need it.

    Eh, Sideways might be better for Fate, now I think about it. Yeah, I know I'd need luck for feminising that Prime mold. Although the chest wouldn't be as hard if I removed the Matrix and whatnot. And if I were to create castings from my existing Optimus and tweak them... Know why Optimus for Hayate and Wing Saber for Rein?

    I'm not a Nanoha fan. Sorry.

    All i know is Wing Saber combines with Optimus Prime to give him wings. Hence, i'm guessing you want reinforce to combine with Hayate.

    I'd laugh if someone made Zafira Puppy from Leobreaker. The Hayate would be able to turn one hand into a giant claw!

    One other question: Are you basing the alt modes off of Nanoha stuff? Like, why does Hayate turn itno a fire truck and Reinforce into an A-10?

    Altmodes can be tweaked. Well, Reinforce Zwei can literally merge with Hayate to assist her and combine their power. Hence the combo team. The altmodes aren't as big a worry, however, these particular vehicles are good because they can fly. Actually, the best mold to use for Fate would probably be Vector Prime.
