    I think I remember the guy behind Renderform did a sketch but he never clarified what the head would be used for. Here's the drawing and link to the thread here.


    Though personally Offroad and Strongarm's head already shares a number of similarities so you could just repaint him into Strongarm. If you want to retain the combining function I'm afraid that's what you'll have to settle for.

    Got another combiner idea.

    Onslaught -> IDW Roller
    Offroad -> Orion Pax
    Wheeljack -> Chromedome
    Prowl (no change)
    First Aid -> Skids or Streetwise -> Windcharger

    i read this as "turn first aid into skids or streetwise, then further turn in into windcharger"....i laughed!

    i'm not sure if i mentioned this before, but if takara pulls through with the two-member torso, i'll make a few changes with CW's versions. including new heads and such....

    gaihawk guy into an OC: neon storm. a female rainbringer seeker that uses "neon beam blasts"

    hellbat fell into my own interpretation on mindwipe.

    killbison iron, drillhorn and cw nosecone will partswap between each other to make xaaron, rhinox and possibly another OC.

    deathsaur dezarus will remain, but his combined head now feature a bottom jaw and a blue collar, courtisy of sky reign. i might even sawp all the blue from SR onto deathkaiser!

    aside from that, i think cw blast off would make a good interpretation of a g1/bw fusion of skywarp. gaihawk guy's head will be painted for this project.

    starscream from cyclonus (ob's)
    windblade and slipstream from modded air raid/skydives
    thunderblast from female copter mold
    lunaclub.....

    i've created a monster worse than the beast himself.......

    Just a little idea for Mega Empress fans. If you plan to make your own I suggest using the Onslaught mold but with PM/ME's head and chest plate. This is only if you want a more "aggressive" looking vehicle form.

    Now that we know the line-up to Beast Wars: Uprising's Magnaboss, I put a little thought into it:

    Silverbolt: ...still Silverbolt.
    Santon: Rook
    Tigatron: CW Tigatron
    Airazor: CW Blast-off (probably the most "feminine" of the mold)
    Lio Minor/Lionhead: either just straight up Unit-3 or another Prowl redeco.

    I've been thinking on my earlier comment about a more aggressive Mega (Empress). Now I'm thinking about expanding that idea to a full team. Basically turning Megatronia and Victorion into a Bruticus vs Defensor idea.

    As far as ideas here's the concepts:
    Skydive -> Slipstream
    Air aid -> Thunderblast or Lyzack
    Offroad -> Nickel (upgraded) or Retrofit
    Legends or Deluxe Groove -> Flamewar
    Dustup -> Nightracer

    Flamewar and Nightracer are of last resort as there arent many Fem-Cons that have more varied designs.

    BTW, here's Nightracer in concept and Flamewar.

    Wow! Those could be really fun to see.

    After looking back in previous threads I wonder what you guys think: Can TR Deluxes be messed with in a way to make believable limbs? There were so many fan modes that pretty much proved it, they just didn't have the Combiner port.

    Thoughts?

    well someone here (i believe drakkenzero) had successfully made a skullsmasher arm, so its definitely there. a few of them could be a bit more difficult, like the scourge and hardhead-based molds, due to no rotating waist though.....

    i've been into rwby a little too much lately, so i want a combiner team based on the series, with ruby, weiss, blake, and yang as limbs, and a HEAVILY retooled sky lynx into zwei......

    also, i've been wanting to combiner chest swap between cw g1 and g2 onslaught, then add a few touches to make my rendition of nexus prime and great cannon/battle gaia.....should i?

    Now I'm brainstorming a Star Seeker combiner. I think I have a combiner addiction.

    Firefly -> Brimstone
    Skydive -> Ferak
    D. Groove -> Flamewar
    D. Groove or Streetwise -> Axor
    Onslaught -> Cannonball

    So with the reveal of RiD Galvatronus now comes the question of how to recreate his limbs for a Generations/CHUG version.

    Cyberwarp and Skyjack I see as either Skydive or Air Raid retools at the moment. Riotgear I can see working out as a Rook retool. Treadshock is a bit of a challenge. He can either be a tank or another APC but with treads, or perhaps even a unique vehicle.

    Considering that the Zords themselves don't transform...
    ...and that the new "Mastodon" Zord is some kind of eight-legged bug-monster...
    No.
