    Hello,

    With the recent news of new Target Movie Scouts it appears that Energon Bruticus will be making a half way appearance. Blight/Kickback and Blackout/Stormcloud mold will be rereleased and I wanted to do a custom Bruticus using these 2 molds for Vortex and Brawl, a Strongarm mold for Swindle. I was thinking of using Energon Starscream for a Blastoff, but I don't actually know his size in comparison to these others.

    Is he closer to Deluxe size as opposed to a scout, if so I will have to look elsewhere.

    Any suggestions would be helpful.

    Thanks!

    Thanks,

    It was suggested to me to use any of the Machine Wars jets as Blastoff, but again I have no idea of their size...

    ...can someone confirm this.

    they would be about the right size as a basic character... maybe Slightly smaller, but they are about right.

    There we go...an answer!!! I was not wanting to use Windrazor as then my Superion would be missing an arm, but now I will have to get one off eBay or something and bash it to the tune of that one.

    Thanks Redline!

    I used Terradive (one of the A-10s) for mine, but I replaced the wings with scratchbuilt ones to give him a vew jet mode.

    There were pics online, but I think they were hosted on Transtopia, and I don't have them anymore.

    I'll see if I can dig him out later for some snapshots.

    I like this one too. Hmmm...I think I'll get which ever I find the cheapest as both will work perfectly.

    Why not wait to see if they release the jet combiner limb in the movie line? That way, if they keep them in a uniform colour scheme, your starting point for painting all the figures will be roughly the same.
