    So when I got ROTF Gears, I didn't like him. I just wasn't feeling the colors with the silver. So I looked at it next to a Stockade and decided to try swapping parts.

    This required removal and reinstallation of the wheel pins and pins on the legs. Also, Stockade had some parts glued that had to be cut off to swap.

    The black car parts of Stockade look real nice with the colored parts of Gears. And the silver car parts combined with the gray robot parts really gives the other guy a stealthy look. I don't know what else I will be doing with the new bots yet. Probably a little repainting and then I will have to come up with new names for them.

    If anyone has suggestions for names, I'd consider them.

    Why not just call the black one Gears?

    Also, Punch and CounterPunch would work, esp. with the arm gimmick.

    I agree with Treadshot- Punch and counterpunch
    Or you can make them a pair of 'con twins to beat up on the "other" Twins from ROTF

    :lolol 

    Love the thought, I would just have to cover up the 2 Autobot logos on the silver one, since trying to remove them would probably ruin the silver paint. Could work. Would be funny as hell.

    What about Runabout and Runamuck? I'd personally prefer Punch/Counterpunch, but the silver and black schemes aren't that far off from Runabout and Runamuck either.

    Oh, and about the 'covering the autobot logos' thing. Ever heard of Reprolabels?

    The silver one is guardian van guard. i attempted the same swap, but got stuck at the wheel pins. :-( Didnt give much thought to the black one... he looks decent though. ;-)
