    I've got a few spare TF figures kicking around that I've been meaning to use for some time now, and I'm lacking inspiration. I'd welcome any ideas as to what I could do with them. I've been doing a lot of chop-shoppy customs recently, so I thought I might go back to basics with some re-tool / head / paints. The willing victims are:

    Crossovers Hulk
    TFTM Offroad Ironhide
    Animated Grimlock


    I'm considering using the first and last on that list to make either Steampunk Grimlock or IDW Impactor (Ani. Grimlock's head could work as either I'm sure) though other ideas are welcome.

    Ironhide, I think, could make a decent Earthmode Soundwave or Shockwave, perhaps? Maybe another Wrecker? Despite being a fairly unpopular repaint, the metallic blue paintjob is actually very nice, so a blue character could benefit from that... as you can tell, this is the one I'm really struggling with.

    Well that's a start :)  I'll put the Hulk/Grimlock experiment together and post some photos before I being painting... since I'm still not sure whether to go for Impactor or not.

    Well you won't find him in a shop that's for sure. It took me months to track one down from a private seller here on the forum. Seeing as you're in the US it should be a lot easier for you, I suggest starting with the 'wanted' forum.

    You could get an Alt. Skids head and put it on Offroad Ironhide.

    Well, I think he's gonna be Grimlock...

    Hopefully I can transfer the sword gimmick across somehow too.

    That's a nice idea, I'll keep 'em peeled for a Skids head.

    Thanks guys, it's very much under-way now. Just figuring out painting tecniques on scrap parts before taking the plunge, since I've never worked with reds and golds before - they're much harder to apply than other acrylics.

    how bout some type of mods to classics onslaught if you have the figure that is.
    i of course do but. i'm some what like the aboved mentioned grimlock not very good with things lol.
    anyways i just can't think of anyway to improve the figure but i would love a new weapon for him the tiny little arm cannon is unfitting of a ultra class figure and i'm not sure why there were no included weapons not like you couldn't store them somewhere.
    theirs my suggestion, i hope you at least think about it.
