    I have been planing on using a bootleg copy of the Micromaster six jet combiner to make a combiner of the seekers (mostly). I was thinking Starscream for the F-15ish one (leg), Thundercracker for the F-16ish one (leg), Ramjet or Dirge for the SSTish one (arm), for the Shuttle and Helicopter, I'm not sure who to use.

    Part of me wants to use the Combaticon Shuttle and Helicopter, the names escape me, but I would like some ideas for them from some more expiranced people. Any Ideas?

    Hmm...that could be interesting. I'm not familar with the bootleg in question (nor the origional for that matter), so I'm not sure what it looks like. The space shuttle and helicopter Combaticons are Blast-off and Vortex. It would definetly be more work, but, a combiner based off of the Classics Seeker molds would be interesting.

    sounds like a good idea, the combaticon Helicopter is Vortex and the shuttle is Blast-Off. Goodluck!

    Can you just buy 2 sets and use all the airplanes so you can have all 6 seekers in one combiner

    If not maybe you can paint the shuttle as astrotrain

    Yes, that pic is of the ones I'm using, just some cheap knock off's I got somewhere. I forgot to mention, the Chest one would be Skywarp.

    I don't remember where I got them, so I don't think I could get another set.

    Nope, because the jets have the connecting parts to be the legs, and the shuttles have the proper connectors and articulation for the arms. They wouldn't be interchangeable without some heavy modding.

    Also, the helicopter bot isn't at all necessary to complete the combiner, so you could leave it out for the sake of keeping the seeker theme. Or you could call it Cyclonus...that might work too.

    Let’s say I left the chopper out, who would then be the shuttle? I don’t like the idea of using Astrotrain (it's not part train), and the Combaticon combo worked out in my head (it may not in execution). Are there any other Decepticon shuttles I am forgetting that could use, or shoud I just paint it like any other seeker (ie Sunstorm, Thrust, Conehead...)?

    Oh, if you have any Tuesday Mornings near you, check there. I picked up a KO of that a few weeks ago, only $4.

    The helicopter may be the Diaclone triple changer (heli-jet-robot) never released in the official Transformers series. I always thought about him as Decepticon.

    Wasn't Blast Off the name of the shuttle from the Combaticons?

    If you live near a Big Lots you could check there for another KO of this. I've seen them sold there for about $4 as well...

    If I was doing this, I'd want to get an extra jet or shuttle, and ditch the helicopter. you could find a way to stick this extra one on the back of the torso without too much work (especially if it was one of the two arm-bots) just for the sake of having all 6 seekers.

    Well the armor jet thing could be painted as one. The five that make up the legs, arms and chest could be the others. That would make six.

    How about this, based on the Superion pic posted earlier:
    Air Raid as Skywarp
    Silverbolt as Thundercracker
    Fireflight as Starscream
    Ro-tor as not used
    Storm Jet as Ramjet/Durge
    Skydive as Ramjet/Durge
    Armor in jet mode as Sunstreaker/Thrust

    What do you people think? Also, who should be who?

    i think energon superion would best translate better into seekers. storm jet is almost a real good starscream already. i love this idea i hope you bash it
