    I apologise, twice. Once for the ambiguous thread title (which is a personal hate of mine) and one for the strange request.

    I am trying to find an Autobot character/toy who is known for his firepower, preferrably who is also a grey or blue colour. The only one that I can think of is Crosshairs, who is nice and obscure. Roadbuster would work if he wasnt green/orange.

    Any suggestions?

    Battletrap comes to mind. As does Slugslinger and Triggerhappy. Nothing says firepower much more than a Targetmaster.

    Bluestreak (Autobot GUNNER!) in either blue or grey flavour.
    Smokescreen
    Defensor has a fair amount of blue on account of Hotspot.
    Sky Lynx
    Ultra Magnus

    I dunno, that's all the blue fairly powerful Autobots that i can think of for right now. I'll probably think of 20 more in a moment.

    Does it have to be G1? Offroad Ironhide from the first Movie line comes with a pair of honking big guns.

    Thanks guys. I am more thinking about the character through the ages. I wanted to pick a couple of characters, and bash a series of conversions of the same character in different styles. I find it interesting the way that a character changes through different series. I have Bludgeon as my Decepticon, as he is fairly strongly themed - Samurai, swords, undead, green and orange (plus, his character is growing on me, as the whole 'Samurai duelist' doesnt seem to fit with a tank alt mode and I like that). My first chocie was Roadbuster as the Autobot gunner.... but his colours are exactly the same and I wanted t ogive myself a break from green and orange!

    Its something that I think would make an interesting Radicons project, a month dedicated to a single character and people make their own interpretation of that character. Could be interesting.

    I like the idea of Ultra Magnus, we was always a favourite of mine too....

    Kind of beat me to it, but I'd suggest Cybertron Scattorshot, the original. He has a distinctive design, but his altmode certainly has room for other molds to be bashed into his in different styles.

    Good firepower, solid altmode potential, distinctive features, and he's blue and has some gray.

    Universe Treadbolt. He's blue and a repaint of Jetfire. Shoulder mounted BFGs, a double barrel rifle, arm-mounted rocket launchers... Heck, he even has twin guns mounted on either side of his helmet.

    If this is the situation, I would definitely go with Magnus. His theme and color are completely different from Bludgeon and he's a figure from across the ages as well. I think having those two combating each other in different forms from across multiple different aesthetics and styles sounds like a great idea.
