    i stumbled onto this website earlier today http://mamao2.cside.com/contents/toys/mainfrm.html

    an alternate take on rid megatron?

    i could actually see that look working for rid megatron but with rid megatron still being a six changer

    ironhide

    rachet

    crosswise

    http://www.tfu.info/2005/Autobot/Crosswise/crosswise.htm

    and his brave saga counterpart

    energon jetfire

    and his brave sage counterpart

    cybertron hotshot

    g1 inferno

    http://www.tfu.info/1985/Autobot/Inferno/inferno.htm

    a possible way to bring him back as a classics inferno

    http://mamao2.cside.com/contents/img/ggg/enryu1.jpg
    http://mamao2.cside.com/contents/img/ggg/enryu2.jpg

    or energon inferno

    g1 grapple

    http://www.tfu.info/2004/Autobot/CSGrapple/grapple.htm
    with this guy as classics grapple or energon road

    http://mamao2.cside.com/contents/img/ggg/hyoryu1.jpg
    http://mamao2.cside.com/contents/img/ggg/hyoryu2.jpg

    or energon roadblock

    so far as i can tell cybertron crosswise, energon jetfire and cybertron hot shot could each be seen as being a possible transformer take on gaurd-star gaurd wing and volfogg

    or for that matter gaurd fire and gaurd rescue could just as easily serve as classics ironhide and rachet if one were to reverse engineer each of them using modern day toy technology

    what are your thoughts people?

    Pretty damn cool. I'd like to get my hands on some of these to repaint and kitbash with.

    Holy cow, I didn't realize that Fire Convoy was a Brave homage! But he clearly is. Neat!

    I think re-engineering modern Brave toys in a Classics-esque fashion is pretty unlikely... but if it were to happen, you're right, those would make some perfect candidates to be re-imagined as Transformers.

    CURSE YOU, GENOZAUR! Showing these links and making me want to find and buy some of these bots...!!

    Can't find anyplace that sells Brave figures, aside from BBTS, which has two vintage figures and Masterpiece editions. Not even ebay has 'em!

    would it make more sense then to kitbash energon inferno into classics ironhide and rachet?

    for that matter would it even be possible to transfer energon inferno's head to enryu and hyoryu's bodies with hyoryu's vehicle mode getting the cryo cannon portion of the extendable crane arm swapped out for the hook portion of roadblocks crane to convert hyoryu into a crane truck

    The Inferno and Grapple ones you believe to be are GaoGaiGar robots, there's for of them in total (Red/Green/Blue/Yellow). The Red and Blue one combine side by side into a larger robot. Ditto for the Yellow and Green one.

    Damn, where's Sol Fury when you need him? Heh.

    so what about the black and pink fembot pair

    the 2 that combine to become tenryujin

    heres the youtube links





    now that is sweet

    hey dark rage all im saying is that enryu and hyoryu would make for a decent set of figures to bash up into classic g1 inferno and grapple

    enryu has a near perfect colorscheme for inferno and just needs energon inferno's head and maybe a slightly different ladder cannon to become inferno
    while hyoryu needs the same head swap job , the cryo cannons swapped out for a extendable hook and cable and a g1 grapple style colorscheme to pull off the look

    Nobody's stopping you from kitbashing. Last time I checked, each GGG Truck Robot will cost your ~$50 and up for each. You can always get the knockoffs though.

    We can always paint GaoGaigar in a Predaking paintscheme, heh.
