    Finally finished sanding down the balljoint on Blast-off for Waspinator.

    Need to smooth it out, thought.
    Any advice?

    Also, due to clearance issues, Wasp-Off is apparently unable to become a leg.
    He can still be an arm, though.

    ^ that is going to be AWESOME when finished!!

    I've started making a Combiner Wars Rung, (and its going to take forever with my schedule) and I never thought of it, but after I saw this thread I realize there's a lot of potential for a Lost Light combiner. Here's my ideas so far;

    Rung (already working on)
    Nautica: Alpha Bravo
    Riptide: Silverbolt
    Cyclonus: Sky Dive
    Whirl: Brawl (only keep Brawl's chest and waist; replace the rest, because the combiner port is horizontal instead of vertical, like Whirl's chest)
    Tailgate: Blackjack (I dunno where he could go on the combined form; maybe peg into the back somehow?)

    Another Lost Light Combiner idea:
    Megatron: Onslaught
    Rodimus: Streetwise
    Drift: Streetwise or Dead End
    Ratchet: First Aid
    Minimus Ambus: Rook

    Anyone else have any Lost Light Combiner ideas?

    ^ All I thought of was a makeshift Galvatronus with Tailgate, Whirl, Swerve, and some other bot as limbs. It was really just a headcanon idea to convey that Cyclonus is a combiner that hates most of his limbs and refuses to combine with them. Whirl, surprisingly, would advocate towards combining since it would mean he could destroy things and not be held accountable.

    I do like your ideas though. My only remark is using Firefly for Cyclonus if you can invert the wings.

    ^ Firefly from Cyclonus actually works better, I think... I was just looking at Sky Dive's head today and thought that it wouldn't really take much to turn it into a MTMTE Cyclonus, just add a horn. But Firefly's overall bot mode AND vehicle mode is a better choice. Plus, that mold is infinitely easier to come by nowadays than Sky Dive's, with Blast off still on shelves in my area.

    Now that I think about it the whole dynamic between Cyclonus and Whirl is a very interesting thing to consider when making them combine! You've added a whole new level to this, haha

    ^ Skydive's head could work for Cyclonus. It's a good idea.

    Thanks.

    I cheated and gave my Cyclonus First Aid, Mirage, Trailbreaker and Hound for limbs.

    You could probably do a decent Skids out of the Dead End mold.

    Also, now I'm thinking of trying to do a custom combiner, using the Survivors! Botcon idea I had.

    Just need to nab a Wheeljack to use as...Wheeljack, thus explaining why they built a combiner.

    Had an idea for a Cybertron CW set:
    Torso is Onslaughtt -> Scattershot
    First Aid -> Red Alert
    Swindle -> Overhaul
    Dead End -> Override
    Alpha Bravo -> Evac
    Powerglide -> Wing Saber

    And the combined mode would be Omega Wave due to the Omega Frequency

    I finally figured out the remaining roster for Nemesis Maximus.

    Vengeful Offroad - Deserted by the Stunticons Offroad wants to prove to his former teammates he's better than Wildrider, a Con he once looked up to.

    Envious Knock Out - Left by Breakdown to become a Stunticon Knock Out was driven to depression while wanting his friend to return to him.

    Abandoned Barricade - Trapped on an alien world during the war left Barricade with a feeling of lost opportunity. Hid greatest wish is to leave a mark somewhere in history, even if it means fighting other Decepticons.

    Raging Flamewar - Accepting her failures to hunt down and defeat the Autobot known as Arcee Flamewar would give anything to receive an edge to face her enemy.

    Offroad (regular mold), Knock Out (Dead End retool), Barricade (Prowl retool), Flamewar (Deluxe Groove retool)

    It occurred to me that the Jeeps' peg on their roof meant that, in a pinch, they could double as feet.

    ^ Whoa. o_O 

    I'm quoting this because I found a piece of Universe art that would work selling this idea as an Onslaught retool.

    I was thinking about limbs for CW Galvatronus. I'm currently working on an Armada Wheeljack from Sunstreaker, and Barricade from Wheeljack. I kind of want to grab a Groove to turn into Sideways, and I know I had thought of a forth limb but I'm drawing a blank.

    My other idea was:
    Onslaught from Rook
    Motorbreath from Off-Road
    Hot Spot from First Aid
    Silverbolt from Air Raid.

    Alright, so I think I sort of have my custom combiner figured out.

    The backstory is sort of like Of Masters and Mayhem, but it's more a riff on the proposed "Survivors!" Botcon theme I came up with.

    Nova Prime returns with an army of Vehicons, Sweeps, Terrorcons and other drones, wiping out most of the Autobots and Decepticons.
    As a result, the mad Prime rules a wasteland, where the survivors make a meager existence.

    The survivors are coordinating one final strike against Nova Prime, seeking to destroy him once and for all.

    Wheeljack is tasked with finishing a Combiner that may be able to take out Nova Prime's right hand Bot, Galvatronus...

    Wheeljack has found:

    -Waspinator: the Unlucky con managed to somehow survive the end of the world. (Blast-off mold)

    -Mashup: No one can really remember if he's a con, bot, NAIL or something else.
    All he is now is a survivor. (Mish-mash of Dead End, Prowl and Smokescreen parts)

    At this point, the other two are still abit up in the air.
    I'm looking at:

    Torso:
    -Toxitron (if I can buy a TFSS5.0 Toxitron or modify a BC prime.)
    -Heatwave (Repainted Hot Spot)
    -Barricade (Repainted Onslaught)

    Not sure on the last limbs
    looking at:
    -Brawn (Hound + Mirage's head)
    -Slapdash (Mirage/Dragstrip with Vortex's head)
    -Wheeljack.

    open to other ideas too.

    go with barricade,wheeljack and brawn....

    waspinator can contribute by his resourcefulness to survive
    wheeljack's brains can help the combiner's overall intelligence
    mashup could be an incredible speedster, allowing the combiner to quickly counteract any attack
    brawn's near indestructible strength is his contribution
    barricades weapons and combat experience are utilized in combined mode

    ...any names for combined mode?

    While I'm planning on picking up the UW Sky Reign set from Takara I'm actually still planning on getting a CW Sky Lynx to make into a Voltron homage named King Golion as a reference to the original anime Voltron was based off of.

    Here is the team

    Sky Lynx painted in the Black lion colors in Sky Lynx mode with the torso in Voltron colors and the Sky Reign head in the black lion colors.
    Sunstreaker forms the left leg
    Mirage forms the right leg
    Hound forms the left arm
    And either Blades,Ironhide,or Firefly form the right arm

    Thinking of a backstory behind the team.
