    Largely because of the G1 Catalog/assortment stuff, I've always considered the Decepticon Target Masters (Misfire, Triggerhappy and Slugslinger) to be Cyc's canon, if mostly off-screen, wingmen. Still leaves a 4th spot to fill, but Scourge would work (not that I could see Scourge tolerating being combined with Cyc...but neither can I see Galvatron living life as a hidden mode :) ).

    I'm looking at a long-range plan for supplementing G. Galvatron's limbs (whom I've divided up among various displays -there's no resisting putting "Zombie War" Breakdown beside Prime Knock Out :D  :D  ).

    Instead, I've thrown Offroad in with Cyclonus' faction. For the other limbs, I'm planning on a mix of IDW-inspired repaints/retools:

    * Flatline (former Decepticon, now neutral, medic): CW Trailbreaker with a Generations Hoist head, a fair amount of black paint, and some 3rd-party 'Con symbols.

    * Barricade (Decepticon police car): CW Prowl, lot of black, grey, and a dab of dark blue paint. Probably the easiest reworking.

    * Turmoil (Decepticon tank): CW Brawl, bit of red, and a LOT of black paint. Admittedly, Turmoil would work better as a combiner torso if I were a stickler for his IDW size (he was definitely Voyager class in the comics), but that'd be one hellaciously difficult retool. :p

    you know, if someone gave an actual galvatron robot mode head to tactician cyclonus, and if you can galvatronus a different head, then the peeps would need a scourge combiner in the same mold.... i'd love someone to partswap g2 superion, g1 superion, and tactician cyclonus to make it happen....

    also, i hope that someone makes stickers for megatronia's components so i can keep track of which is which......

    Probably the same reason he won't get claw/feet upgrades. Not really a "must have" toy even if you are a Sky Lynx fan.

    At thet top of my head Unit-3, TFP Vehicons/TFA Autotroopers, Universe Macro/Deadheat/Firebreaker.

    On a different note, I have an idea. Take the Hot Spot/Pyra Magna mold. Remove the ladder arm and replace it with a crane. Obviously the cuts out the combiner head until an alternative method can be made but if you want a good Voyager Hook or homage the Energon Constructicons this seems to fit the bill.

    I also got the idea of turning Offroad's mold into a front payloader (like Scoop or Scrapper) by replacing the truck hood with a bucket. Not much development beyond that point besides turning Rook into a bulldozer like Bonecrusher.

    Blades, vortex, etc with some reworking could make a futuristic or Cybertronian submarine. Take tail mushroom peg off and put on prop, remove propellers base via pin and add the tower thing. Round out the nose and feet part. Arm missiles become torpedoes of course.

    How about a 'heralds of Unicron' type combiner with Galvatron as the torso, and Armada Sideways, Armada Thrust, Cyclonus and Scourge as limbs and a Unicron inspired combiner head?

    so quick question.....would this be the setup for botcon magnaboss with the beast modes?

    silverbolt from an eagle
    ironhide from an elephant
    tigatron from a tiger
    prowl and unit-3 from lions

    i'd think ironhide'll be the torso, with silverbolt / tigatron as arms and prowl / unit-3 as legs...what do you guys think?

    edit: yes, i do feel stupid for asking.....i'm just not that familiar with magnaboss to begin with

    SG G2 would be hard to determine, wouldn't it?

    Shattered Glass Grand Galvatron...

    Cyclonus/Galvatron would be the same.
    After the Death of Galvatron following some epic clash, the remorseful Cyclonus, still filled with guilt over his role in Megatron's Death, allows his circuits to be merged with Galvatron, keeping him alive.

    Starscream would just bet SG starscream.

    Armada Thrust would be... Brave, heroic and loyal.
    He's sided with SG Armada Unicron because both Megatron and Unicron realize they needed to work together to defeat Prime and Thrust is sort of an emissary and go-between for the two.
    After defeating SG Armada Prime and Primus, Unicorn has sent him through the multiverse to help raise awareness and assist those who need it.
    Color scheme would be... armada Smokescreen maybe?

    Prime Breakdown....
    Doesn't really change much.
    He's loyal, he's willing to fight, and he's the Chromedome to Knock Out's Rewind.
    also the Stunticons would have been a mix of their normal counterparts and the Mayhem Suppression Squad. Which might make Motormaster an Ultra Magnus counterpart.
    Dunno about his color scheme, maybe just swap him with Knock Out...which might make him a palette swap of Ironhide.

    SG IDW Roller...
    Dirty cop just like Prime.
    Prime threw him under the bus to keep the Government from stopping his latest scheme where he was manipulating and exposing Sparks to radiation to create stronger and more powerful underlings.

    SG Unicron abducted him and the only reason he's agreed to help Cyclonus/Galvatron is because it means he can get revenge on his old "friend".

    Color scheme is hard to tell, but I guess it could be based on....Maybe one of Shockwave's pre-empurate color schemes.

    Since this is a Combiner Wars thread...

    Thought my CW Vehicons would be fitting lol

    What I did was cut off the neck post off of the Vehicons and superglued them to CW bodies :)

    Thanks. I was going to keep the "casino girls" option (waitresses, performers, gamblers, and so on) which was mostly dark/emerald green and black but I took it out because I hadn't thought the idea through plus the colors weren't that good of choice. I think it was something I wanted to try as a joke played straight but it lost it's punchline the more I thought about it. *shrug*

    I love warpath, and when I saw they made him with a retool I was excited. But once in hand he felt anything but warpath. The idea could be used on Megatron as well I'm sure but it consists of new treads to widen the body a bit. As well as increase its height as the turret feels way to massive. Clasping over the original treads or pegging into hollow sections in back to give it that proper proportions in tank mode. In bot mode the treads would fold together and tab into each other then peg into the back. To fix how flat he is, followed by a piece that I can't see in tank mode that slides over the chest and shoulders tabbing securely into the treads on the back giving him more bulk and his famous chest turret. If I can I'll sketch what I mean and post concept later.

    But with cosmos and other dinobots getting really nice molds this felt lazy and left warpath kadont instead of kablam.
