    Just wondering what other TF would you put in with your class, cos I’m just thinking, a small line so its not going to take up much space on my selves so I was looking for other TF of a similar style. I got the devastator landfill repaint and then I was drawing a blank, any other ideas or suggestions?

    I don't think it will be "small" persay, but not as large as say, Cybertron, Armada, or Energon.

    I think we'll get a good 20-30 figures out of this line.

    Oh yeah...on topic-Cybertron Smokescreen. He's going with my Classics.

    Right now I'm thinking these will definitely be with the Classics:

    Cybertron Smokescreen
    Energon Downshift (standing in for Wheeljack, of course)
    MAYBE Energon Rodimus.... if I'm feeling really generous towards the little fatty

    Other than that none I can think of.... too much clutter would start to draw aways from the coolness that is the Classics line.

    Only Evac. He's a freaking badass, and he really matches the Classic aesthetic, without actually being a classic character.

    I want to bash one into Ultra Magnus, for a crazy change of pace, but Springer could work too.

    Sandstorm would be a better fit. They were the same type of helicopter, and Evac is already almost in the colour scheme. You could pretty much just say it is him, in fact!

    Energon is a Classics "booster" goldmine.

    Downshift (moeso than the Cybertron version)
    Bulkhead (Springer with a baddass 'stashe = rockity rock rock rock)
    All three combiners
    Shockwave
    Rodimus (he's the "Prime" to Classic's "Hotrod"
    Swoop
    Galvatron



    Cybertron has goodies, but they need repainting.

    Armorhide pretty much is Huffer with the wrong colors

    Crosswise done like so:

    And I know I said Energon makes a better Downshift for Wheeljack, but you could:

    And let's not forget RID Magnus.

    I would say Universe Sideswipe, but RID deluxe cars are a little too small, and it would be a crime to 'bash a new head onto a convention exclusive.

    I'm not sure if I want to just yet, but I might. Cyb Smokescreen of course would be one, if i still had E-Bulkhead he'd go in as Springer. The energon combiners, even Devestator cause the Landfill mold bites. E-Slugslinger (could use a repaint to really fit in), maybe some of the terrorcons as tapes and such, Arcee, maybe Galvatron and Shockblast, maybe Dreadwing or whatever his name is as Scourge. Probably others but I can't think too well right now.

    Couldn't agree more. I want a Crosswire now so I can figure out how to make that. As for what to add, maybe some Titaniums like Scourge and Rodimus depending on their sizes, plus my 2005 BotCon repaints of Ironhide and Ratchet. Cybertron Blurr maybe. Plus some Robot Masters if we don't get our Skywarp and Thundercracker Starcream repaints.

    Was this your kitbash, Cheebs? Or someone else's? I don't recall. Well, regardless, this wins the "Renidragon's Favorite Kitbash of All Time" award. I LOVE Crosswise, he's my favorite Cybertron toy... and Bluestreak is one of my favorite G1s... that's just too cool. If I could afford what I think it's worth and could find another Crosswise (they've suddenly disappeared!), I'd totally ask to commission one of those.

    Thanks. :)  Yes, he's mine. I made him as sort of a "learning experiance" for working with epoxy putty. I'm an absolute Bluestreak nut, so I couldn't resist doing this one.
