    A pair of CW male to male 5mm post connetor and a female 5mm facing up so you can plug guns into Cyclonus/Superion's shoulder. Maybe a little hollow or something because I know theres something similar out there, but $9 for just one is a killer.

    The other part is a male CW to female 5mm with a separete 5mm male to Titan Master socket male. Basically so you could use a TR figue as a leg.

    If the price could be under 20, that would be amazing. Highly unlikely, but amazing.

    A new tail end for alpha bravo mode that turns it into a Cybertronian bullet train. Arms could be turned into gravlifts in alt mode or something.

    Filler piece that uses the tiny hole in the blur and brainstorms legs section behind the seat in vehicle mode, to fill in the small gap between the canopy/cockpit and rear of the vehicle.

    Especially for brainstorm as jets usually don't have open cockpits.

    Could you do a set of side by side pics of the character you want and the toy you want the head on?

    They are in the very obscure end...and...I tried to pick toys that were exclusive or obscure themselves...with some similarities varying between alt mode, color scheme, etc....

    Valve (I've not seen good or possibly any image of him...but...he has Spark-brothers (Springarm & Wheelarch or the Rodion Police) who resemble Prowl...so I figure he would too...the toy I haven't narrowed down...but...originally thought a motorcycle...which limits things...if not a cycle...maybe he...and...his Spark-brothers could just use the CW bodies of the former Datsun trio...maybe with some bits to make vehicle look less earthy...and...more cybertronian...) 2017-02-19 18.52.31.jpg

    A new TR face plate based on Arm Overload's Mini-Con head and a helmet based on Overload's full head for TR Powermaster Optimus. Since we're getting a state side release of the Takara mold, I figured that would be a great use for that mold.

    Ive been a firm believer that Defensor only needed a couple of bits to make him look even better [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] I have made an attempt to at least see the render in 3d form, albeit to the crudest of ways lol. I think this will be a nice set to have and can give defensor that red ab, a more proportional chest, and hip parts as well.

    anyone else think they could make a few more accurate parts for quickswitch?

    accurately needed details: drill tank, hovercraft and a flying puma
    plus groove could be a supply backpack in that position!....although the price might be steep...

    I've a few suggestions...

    G1 style heads for Rotf Scout Nightbeat and scout Sandstorm.

    A kit that would allow 4 Titans Return Scourges form arms and legs for Galvatronus.

    I've seen a kit on Shapeways allowing you to give a cartoon style head and new arms to G1 Ratchet and Ironhide.
    How about similar kits to give the Throttlebots and Battlechargers new articulated arms?

    A kit that replaces G1 Ratchets battle platform, giving both he and Ironhide Cybertronian vehicle modes akin to their Animated selves.

    A stronger lower jaw for the Device Label Ravage mold as it's broken on Ravage, Tigatron and Cheetor on me.

    A replacement horn weapon for Transmetal/Armada Rhinox.

    A Lightspeed head for Cybertron Clocker/Swerve.

    A Streetwise head for Cybertron Clocker.

    A roof/spoiler that possibly converts to an arm mounted shield to turn Cybertron Swerve/Clocker into Hot Rod.

    A radar dish for RID Soundwave! Plugs into his shoulder cannon, and has a built in hinge so it can "fold" down in vehicle mode! I know he's a military truck, but Soundwave NEEDS a dish! Maybe a 5mm peg in the dish half, so it can be a "shield" when in bot mode?

    I was playing around with TR Galvatron and it wouldnt be to hard to make him a combiner torso, all you need is to add ports, and make a new head for combined mode that plugs into the headmaster port.

    New shoulders for RID Skywarp!
    The Screamer shoulders paid homage to coronation Screamer perfectly, but... For the other seekers the effect is lost on them.. some simple smooth G1esq shoulders would be perfect!

    Ambitious I know, but I'd love a new cockpit/nosecone for both Classics and Combiner Wars Cyclonus that would fit a Titanmaster pilot and bring them into scale with the Titanmaster jets.

    Looks like this thread hasn't been posted in for a while. Don't want it to get lost because there are some good ideas here and likely more to come.

    I have a few ideas so this bump isn't completely meaningless:

    New decoy suits for the Prime Masters closer resembling humans and individualized based on the Prime's motif. Would also allow for such things as Metalhawk's Titan Master filling up the vacant space.

    For when the mold is more familiar: Solus Prime head for POTP Elita One, both in Aligned and G1 style.

    Twin guns for POTP Dreadwind (or simply another gun to pair with his included one.)

    Metalhawk and Cloudburst heads for POTP jets.

    Arcee head for Moonracer.

    Prime and Pretender faces for Prime Master backs.

    The heads and hands of countless characters modeled after Geoff Senior and Andrew Wildman's art styles, but mainly a G1 comic-accurate Fortress Maximus head.
