    Sooo i was watchin some G1 episodes the other day, n i rememberd about Runamuck n Runabout the Hill-billys of the decepticons(not trying to be offencive) and they havent seen a new mold in a while i mean they had the Transformers Cybertron Runabout but Runamuck hasent seen it for a while sooo lets bring them into moree 2008/2009 molds shall we?
    Your advice on what i should use for the base of there bodys.
    i was kind of thinking maybe Bumblebee Camaro '08?

    Advice please =)

    *UPDATE JUNE 20 2008*
    Now sence my Menasor Project has gone down the drain (Except Motormaster(Payload Repiant Keepin him the way he is as Motormaster) I have a x2 Swindle/Camshaft figures soooo might as well make them into Runabout n Runamuck =) our Decepticon Hillbillys=)

    well as far as the cybertron one goes... it was actually runamuck who got the mold... but it is an absolutely horrible mold (lol, even though it was an upgrade from the G1 version)
    but just about anything that could be done with them from the movie or so could be a vast improvement.
    no ideas for you, sorry, but good luck!

    I've seen both of these made from a Classics Bumblebee. Sure the car isn't exactly what you'd think, but the transformation scheme is dead-on, and gives you that hooded look.

    Actually, Runabout got the mold, was named Runabout in Japan, but Hasbro couldn't get the rights for the name when they brought the toy over so they went with Runamuck. Runamuck's the white one.
    And yeah, that Armada Sideswipe mold is a true horror.

    I thought about doing them both out of movie Wreckage, Runamuck with Red black and grey camo and Runabout with the Wreckage head repainted also maybe the Stockade head for Runamuck.

    If you're going with "movie" molds, why not use the Swindle/Camshaft mold? Despite the head, I think the toy gets a bad rap . . .

    The only car thats seems to fit the bill(to me anyway)is Cybertron Downshift.You would have to modify the head,but I think it would work.

    I agree with him, a head swap and these would be gret for that duo.

    I like the idea of using classics bumblebee like Redline said the transform is spot on and there plenty of room to put a new head in. If you don't like it because of the alt mode you could always try a bit of reshelling, it may make the feet to big but you never know, it depends on how much work you want to put into it.

    cybertron smokescreen would be a suitable candidate with a small bit of modding here and there
