    Roadbuster and and Grimlock (earth vehicle mode) have already occurred to me.

    I love this figure but I'll confess that I think he's more appropriate for some other characters than he is for Onslaught even.

    He looks much thicker and stockier than is traditional for Onslaught, and lacks any really long-range weaponry. The big blades on his shoulders feel more appropriate to a character who actually likes to get his hands dirty... the exact opposite of Onslaught.

    Still... he's pretty awesome.

    He's simple to disassemble and the prep work is fairly easy, too. Compared to the Automotion on TFTM figs, or the work of an Alt, he's a piece of cake. I'd like to see that Roadbuster, BTW. It's a good choice for him.

    Mine is gonna be Onslaught when I am finished. He'll just be able to combine, and while doing so have a slightly different transformation for his "torso" mode so he's nice and beefy.

    I'm doing the same thing RL. After Defensor = Bruticus. I'm using jetfire as blast off, alt swindle as himself, evac as vortex, and crossover hulk as brawn.

    Grimlock would be very interesting, imo. I might just do that digibash sometime soon.

    Stalker sounds like a nice character to try and reproduce, though it'd require spme modding, as I'd hope to see him carry a missle in the same fashion.

    Why would you use Onslaught to make Stalker? CDF Red Alert all the way!

    s'pose it'd be just nostalgia value, found I was thinking Silverbolt might work for Skyquake with some modding after.

    Silverbolt as Skyquake I think I can see.

    But as for the other, I meant to use CDF Red Alert to make Stalker, not Onslaught to make CDF Red Alert.

    Red Alert already has the same kind of alt mode as Stalker, with the enormous missile, and even a similar layout in robot mode. Stick on a radar dish and possibly a new head (I'd be tempted to retool Alt Silverstreak's), paint him magenta and green and you're away.
