    OK si I will be doing the Desepticon Battlechargers in a Shattered Glass Theme down the road. Later this summer. I am however faced with a issue what paint scheme I should go for. As those that aware of SG knows their paint cans be almost the same as G1, reversed colors, colors of an Autobot, or something totally different. So i wanted a poll to see what everyone thinks. Their will be two selections for autobot colors as one with be with the colors of the jumpstarters as the have similar mechanics of pullback and (somewhat) auto transform and one where you can name the autobots.
    Choices for the poll with be:

    1-Stay with their colors just slightly altered

    2-Reverse their colors (red car with black windows/ orange care with white windows)

    3-Go Autobot colors of the Jumpstarters

    4- Go autobot colors (you name them in a reply)

    5- go different (name color scheme in a reply)


    Thank you,

    I say go with the Autobot Jumpstarters paint schemes, it would be an awesome take on the SG Battlechargers.

    I plan on doing this myself (I think I had wanted to do them in your SG-themed charity auction, actually) later this year as well. I will be doing them in Sideswipe and Sunstreaker's colors.

    I thought about that, but Even though the TFwiki people seem to disagree to me Dirge is in Sunstreakers colors. Which would kinda make some sort of sense. That is why i painted Ramjet in Sideswipes colors. So for these 2 i wanted to go a different route. :D 

    Also the same goes for ratchet verse the constructicons. Seems they have each others colors. and when I do them as a custom thats the colors route I will go.

    Dirge or Ramjet in Sunstreaker colors? WTF? Why and how does that make sense?

    Anyway, I think the Constructicons were done in Protectobot colors.

    (the reason the wiki people disagree is because some of the people who write the SG stuff edit the wiki. sorry to be like that about it, but i'm pretty sure that's straight from trent and/or sipher.)

    please see my post right above yours. thank you.


    Well lets see..... 3 sets of regular jets (ss, tc, sw), 3 fairlady z. 3 custom jets (thrust, dirge ramjet), 3 lambos to me it makes sense given dirge is yellow and black. Assuming he isn't taken from Bumblebee's colors the next best choice for yellow and black would be Sunstreaker.

    I dont think so. Of the 5 you see in the comics all of the are Red and white only. There is no black or blue. Plus as the constructions are the medics in SG it would make sense for 1) all to keep the same color scheme as they did in g1 and 2) to take the colors of the Cheif medic Ratchet. If anyone would have the Protectobots colors the best guess would be the Combaticons.

    Sorry to be like what?? Do you have any proof that the people that write Wiki are the same that write the cannon for SG universe, or are you just making a guess in assuming everything you read is truth??

    Who are the three lambos? Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, and...?

    Hmm. 6 guys repainted as 1 guy seems extremely odd to me...

    *shrug* Go for it, man. I'm sure you'll rock it. SG really is just open to creative license anyway. You can pretty much do whatever you want and get away with it as long as there's some kind of rational thought put into it. I'm looking forward to seeing your custom.

    I'll put a spin on my vote:

    Make them in Jumpstarter colors, but then make some SG Jumpstarters! :D

    Totally use the jumpstarter color scheme. I personally love when Shattered Glass figures swap the counterparts between factions.

    So true. I just love the whole SH is not a set pattern. You could go wild with it.

    As much as i love this idea I may keep it within the G1 patterns. Well maybe.....
