    I wonder if anyone was to make a deluxe Autobot head base off of this:

    A Knockout head for POTP Jazz would be great, there isn't a single Knockout head on shapeways

    Am I the only one who thinks that head looks like a movie version of Rad?

    As for the topic, there's plenty of those oversized kos of Combiner Wars Hot Rod out there. I know there are Shapeways kits to allow the official toy put his spoiler on his back but are there any that would work for the upscale version?

    Also, how about a replacement lower jaw for the Device Label Ravage mold?

    I bought Ravage, Tigatron and Cheetus and the jaws broke on each one. I'd love a replacement made of stronger material I could use to fix them.

    I found a solution though I wouldn't mind a kit that connects them properly instead of just using blu tack.

    A similar type of Titanmaster accommodating nosecone and cockpit for other Transformer jets.

    A connector to allow this third party Prowl head from the Devestator upgrade kit to fit on the Combiner Wars First Aid body.

    A replacement crest for the head robots Bludgeon kit so I don't haveto spend €50+ to replace such a small part.

    A replacement cab such as the third party one for Mixmaster for the Combiner Wars Hotspot/Onslaught mode to scale them closer to CW Motormaster's truck mode.

    Heads, lots and lots of heads. Heads of existing characters, new heads... heads, heads, heads. Also, possibly hands.

    Here's something that'll be really expensive and unrealistic to own. Make a trailer for CW Optimus Prime that can combine with him.

    I'd be interested in a very simple adapter... basically a short bar with 3x 5mm holes in it. It would plug on to the two pegs in the combined mode chest of CW Optimus and then a hole in the middle to allow for a PotP hand / armor piece to plug into that.

    A variation that might take a bit more work is a similar adapter that plugs on to those two pegs that lets you connect a PotP matrix on to it.

    Anyone every done...OR...thought about doing...a Dinobot Paddles...conversion kit...???...could be for AOE Sludge...POTP Sludge...OR...any potential HQ OSKO of POTP Sludge...depending on if one wanted to keep combiner compatibility for the POTP one...they'd all likely need the same parts...which could mean after designing the designer... could potentially cover all three figures...with some resizing for difference in connection...OR...in the case of the movie one...aesthetic differences... such a kit would need a bot mode head...which if no visual...could be a modified Sludge head with a breathing aperatus-esq mask added...then we'd be looking at the four fins for Dino mode...possible a longer tail...and...then a longer Dino mode neck...and...a different Dino mode head (might not be totally necessary)...past that...give him that give a underwater themed redisng of the accessories Sludge comes with...

    I second this motion! Though I'd limit it to the flippers. They already have to work with the existing balls AND the front flippers have to transform to arms without looking ridiculous.
    The flippers would have to fold over the arms or swing back.

    If done for the AOE Sludge the flippers could be enough...well no...I take that back...the head would be needed if you're talking about the G1 deco / head variant...but...the normal head would suffice...though admittedly...I'd prefer an aquatic tweak to both the head & weapons..
