    Hi all. Here are the rough digibashes of a repaint idea I recently came up with. As you can see, it's inspired by Cybertron Menasor's color scheme, and using Energon Landmine's mold. I'm also using his head sculpt as a place-holder till I've decided what I'm going to do for that.

    While it's inspired by Menasor, I'm planning on making this as a new character that I'll be fitting in my sudo G1 continuity. Since the name Menasor is already taken, I'll be needing a new name for him.

    I'm not exactly sure why, but I'm sort of attached to the name Bossk, and yes, I know that's a Star Wars character (sort of why I like it so much, lol). However, I'm open to suggestions. If there are enough suggestions I'll put together a poll so people can vote on their favorite. Can't guarantee the most popular one will be the one I choose, but we'll have to wait and see.

    Edit: Added the second color scheme idea I have for this. Now that I have the figure in-hand I actually like the orange on it, lol, just not the baby blue.

    Also have two more name ideas for him. Wedge, and while I wasn't wanting to use any name with land in it, Landfill. Was used in G1, but is obscure enough for me to possibly use it for a character in my sudo-G1 universe. What do you guys think?

    Any opinions on the idea of Bossk as the name?

    Good point, though honestly, I'd rather brake that trend, lol.

    The blue is the same, but that's it. When I do this, the tan will be lighter than it is in the digibashes (would have made it lighter in them, but I couldn't get it to look right).

    I think I remember seeing that digi (can't remember who did it). The mold would definitely work for Clench, but since I'm going for a new character, I'd rather not re-use the name.

    Cool name, though it would work much better for a Decepticon, imho.

    If I'm to name this I must know.
    Do you intend it to use the brute pack at all?

    Yes. I might modify it a little, but I do plan on including it in the kitbash.

    Kinda looks like Landshark, if got the Japanese Animated Bulkhead/Ironhide treatment.

    Hailstone, Permafrost, Sleetstorm, Snowstorm, Landplow.

    Really? No opinions on my idea to call it Bossk?

    There's a Japanese version of Landshark? Could you link me to some pictures?(all I've been able to find is pictures of the Botcon one).

    I was referring to the Botcon one, but my sentence was missing an "it". I was trying to say the colors look like a Botcon Landshark that had received the shiny green paint treatment a la Japanese Animated Bulkhead/Ironhide.

    Oh, ok. I honestly don't see it. It's more blue than green, and really, none of the other colors match-up. Though it probably doesn't help that, in this molds case, I'm not a fan of the Landshark name...
