Oh nice! Where'd you find those?
probably sir toys
No. They're just 2 oversized CW Hot Rod toys. I got them on eBay very cheap.
They're not finished yet. I'm a vehicle scale nut so I was delighted to find a Hot Rod that finally looks good with the Diaclones.
The Battle Chargers were repainted from Black Jack who's a retool of Hot Rod.
I'll probably pick up a few more to repaint as the Ground Troopers from Devestation and I did recently see a nice Photoshop of the mold as Tracks.
That said Sir Toys does have a few oversized Black Jacks in random colours that could work as the Ground Troopers.
On a side note, I always felt the car like 'Watchdogs' from G1 could work as Cybertronian Battlechargers.
Even the name Battlechargers made it feel like there should be more of them like the Seekers and Prime Vehicons.
I've 2 left. One I'm keeping as Hot Rod but the other I'll paint as Black Jack. I hated that they gave him a face plate. He was my favourite Decepticon Micromaster growing up. Although I do like that Hot Rod and Black Jack had both been Micromasters.
Okay, how are you guys finding oversized KOs on eBay? Because I must be doing something wrong.

I will say be careful with the Hot Rod mold. The first 3 I bought all broke at the shoulder joint.
I only kept buying them because they were so cheap and Hot Rod has always been my favourite Autobot.
Modified G1 Sunstreaker so a Titanmaster can fit in his car mode...
OOO, are you gonna make him a headaster?
I wish I could though if I could remove the face from the panel behind it, I think Blaster's Titanmaster could work for Sunstreaker's head.
Not sure if I have the ability.
Try it, but do your best to not irreparably damage it until you're sure
A couple more works in progress...
New cockpit for CHUG Darkwing so he can carry Titanmasters. Need to paint it up.
Oh shit that’s a good cockpit what’s it from
My 30 year old junker Snapdragon. Both jets are modelled on the Blackbird SR-71.
Have had to modify his transformation but I don't find the robot kibble any worse than it was already.
Oversized Runabout is pretty much finished. Here he is with G1 Smokescreen who I criminally neglect, mainly because I have more Transformers than sense.
Also shown is Work in Progress Gripper...
So here we have Chase (Not a custom), G2, I mean WIP Freeway and my almost finished Combiner Wars Gripper...
Freeway and G2 Punch
