    I am considering if I should stick with Termitron for Botcon 2010 or if I should try something new that being having a display/diorama involving ROTF Tankor & His Army (the leader having black paint on him somewhere to let you know that he's the boss).

    **regarding the Tankor Army Diorama - Aiming for it being Battle-Scene based.

    What do you think?

    (Just considering some plans is all. ^^)

    I am still looking for assistance in regards if I should stick with Termitron or try the ROTF Tankor Army display for Botcon 2010.

    *Someone suggested showing battle damage with missing limbs for example.

    Here is a picture showing the leader Tankor (Unmodified) with his 8-member army (currently sealed):

    Hes just Tankor enough that you could do the diorama from Beast Machines with the army of him chasing after Optimus Primal and gang.

    #1.) Thanks for the comment

    #2.) He wasn't on sale, just got them at different times.

    #1.) Thanks for the suggestion, but I don't currently have them on hand, but thanks anyway.

    Does anyone else have a comment regarding Termitron and/or Tankor Army Idea?

    I think you may find that the Tankor idea will give you a fresh approach in regards to your custom work; keep us posted! :thumb

    AWWWH. I thought I was the only one who had this idea.. =P

    I like it.

    I just picked up a Leader Brawl from a friend, and with Black Friday this weekend I picked up 3 Legends Tankor and a Dlx DD Brawl at Target.

    Thinking about leaving the Legends tankorz alone, painting 2 Deluxes like the USA BM Tankor deco, and then the leader as close to the Show model as possible, along the lines of Beast Wars Returns.

    The setup will look like

    1 Leader- Supreme Commander Tankor
    2 Deluxes- Lieutenant Tancor/Lieutenant Tankaur
    4 Legends-Tank Drones

    and I have a McTankor that I'm going to use as a "Mastermind" sort of scenario.

    Instead, It gives Firepower. :) 

    That's a neat plan and it is pretty cool that someone has a similar idea as well.

    Thanks for the inspiration and keep you & people here in mind.

    Any ideas for a display set-up (I mean like what to put Tankors on sense)?

    You're welcome! I hope this thread can help you!

    As for ideas with a Tankor display, how about a Cybertron display set-up?

    I think having the same custom at BotCon every year drastically hurts one's chances of ever winning at the contest.

    My mom agrees with your point in regards to that since it could seem like as one says "Re-Run" entry though I do it mainly for fun.

    You have any ideas in regards to Display for Tankor Army? (Just curious)
