    Does anyone else use Nemesis Strika from Universe as their Animated Strika? The idea only recently hit me like a ton of bricks, and she fits in with the esthetic really well.

    She doesn't really look Animated Strika. Do you have a pic of her with some Animated figures, curious to see what they look like together

    Yeah her figure isn't show accurate with weapons and colors but it's probably as close as we'll ever get.

    Universe Strika, she may be one the most horrible recolors ever made.

    Holy crap I need that figure! Seriously. I wasn't into collecting when Beast Machines was popular so I never got a Strika. This version fits well. Comparing them online, this Strika has a decepticon logo on her chest which the BM one is lacking. Also, the universe one has more animated-like coloring. BM Strika is kinda bland in the color department.



    EDIT Hurray for my 100th post!!!!!!

    yeah, the Universe Strika is much more suited for Animated than the Beast Machines one. But BM Strika's head is colored more Animated show accurate. I've got an extra BM Strika, if I can figure out how, I'm going to switch their heads out.

    Nothing that a little bit of painting won't fix.

    If you have an extra BM Strika, then you don't need paint. Her head screws off and switches with Universe Strika perfectly. Here is how mine looks now that I have fixed her for Animated.

    Oh wow, that beast machine head really fixes her up to look more like animated! I need to do this.

    That is pretty good, but I'm just not feeling it. Maybe it's because I loathe BM.

    Well I LOVE it. It will hav to do since we surely wont ever get an official Strika. OK, so basically I have to get both a BM and a universe Strika and switch their heads out. I noticed that you switched their upper arms out as well.

    That fits surprisingly well with the Animated look. Ok, it's not the closest match to the TFA character, but I've seen toys that bear less resemblance to their animation model. G1 Ironhide, anyone? :wink:

    Let's see
    Animated Rodimus, Ironhide, Oil Slick, and Blackout have toys. Universe 2.0 Hot Shot, Cyclonus, and Brawn can substitute for their Animated counterparts. Poor Red Alert doesn't have one. Spittor can have his BW toy for his replacement. And Strika, you know.

    For the Constructicons
    Scrapper= Energon Steamhammer (It may not come with drills,but it comes with a shovel mouth)

    Mixmaster = Universe 2.0 Heavy Load (obviously why)

    Dirt Boss = RoTF Dirt Boss (Should've seen that coming)

    That works surprisingly well, too bad I'm not really too interested in Strika from any line :lol

    NO, I think this Strika is the only passible substitution from your list. The Constructicons, Spittor, and Brawn especially look nothing like their animated counterparts.
