    One of my early ideas for this custom combiner set was to include the other Maximals from the McDonald's tie in. However the names would need to change since...well "Panther" doesn't quite have the same flair like Ironhide or Silverbolt.

    And in going with Magnaboss' theme of G1 characters being given Beast Wars iterations that can combine together, here's Maximal Mirage!

    Went with Mirage due to the fact the panther alt-mode lends itself to a more stealthy character, along with the shared white and blue in their color schemes.

    Hope you like Mirage here, and will like the fifth and final member coming shortly.

    very bold choice, and it's magnificent! i love that you renamed him to go with the g1 theme of the original set and mirage being a panther just really feels right

    Love this dude, glad you didn't go with a generic choice like Tigatron. Smart name change too.

    Holy shit! I had that little McDonald's panther, he and the manta ray were incredible for toys that came in a happy meal. Love this!

    Thanks for the kind words everyone. Was honestly worried this choice might not go over well since it seemed a lot of people were hoping for Tigatron. ^^"

    Except he used Headstrong to make Ironhide. Unless he swapped beast heads woth Torox.

    One option? Maybe Sideswipe based on T-Beast? Though the colors wouldn't be all that different. a7b9a798aefe683964d80734b5efecb7.jpg
