    I was inspired to do a digibash of the Omnibots by Satomiblood's Overdrive.

    Here is my take, what do y'all think?

    Overdrive from Cyb. Smokescreen (whitemocha had mentioned it on Satomiblood's thread). I really like how he came out. Nice and simple.

    Downshift from Clas. Bumblebee. I was thinking he need something over his head like the G1 and the CBB came to mind and the jet ski forms the weapons on his shoulders/head. Definitely would need a new head if I do this.

    Camshaft from Univ Silverstreak. The G1 cars were similar so I figured why not just use the Univ version.

    As this is far from being ready to start (if I do it at all) I look forward to your input and suggestions.

    These are all great ideas. I was thinking of using Prowl for Overdrive, but Cyb Smokescreen looks really nice in red too.

    I made a Downshift from Classics Bee last year, using Cyb Bendy Prime's head. It fits perfectly with no modding. Check it out and feel free to borrow the recipe:

    I'd personally use Cyb Red Alert or Cannonball as a base for Camshaft. Im not a big fan of that mold, but the transform is much more like the G1 figure.

    WOW! That does look good and the head, spot on. Definetly taking notes. :D 

    Not a bad idea on Cyb Red Alert, might have to look at that as a possible option.

    Looks good (and thanks for the shout-out! :) ). I remember Flashback's Downshift from last year, as well.... you really did a great job with it.

    My only suggestion would be to make the helmets black on all of them. The Omnibots are all sort of recognizable for having black helmets, I think.

    I always try to give credit. Good catch on the heads. I was doing these during lunch today. I will get this changed on Monday. Nice thing about digibashing, its easy to fix if you screw up. :D

    That Overdrive looks really good. Would probably go with a black helmet and black upperarms/silver forearms, though.

    You mean to tell me I inspired someone?

    Oh, and could you by chance put together a digibash for mine? Seeing as how we're both doing Omnibots?

    This thread has inspired me to tackle Overdrive and Camshaft. After I finish Punch/CP, Swindler, Diaclone Bluestreak....

    with downshift i would actually suggest classics sunstreaker, before i put the reprolabels on my kitbashed wheeljack from that mould it was a very good likeness.

    I'd appreciate it. I don't want to clutter your thread with talk of my custom so if you do manage to make me a Digibash using the Hot Rod mold, PM it to me. Thanks again.
