    I'm actually well along on idea #3, V. Prime to Ultra Magnus. Using two V. Primes actually.

    I want to make a HOS inspired Superion using 4 Ransack's and I don't know what yet for Silverbolt.

    I am nearly complete on Incinerator to Springer, there's a WIP around here somewhere!

    I have plans for ROTF CLones Pounce and Wingspan too.

    Probably you could use Breakaway, but then again, he ain't ancient

    Some possible ideas i have are:

    ROTF Skids and Mudflap (Seperate cars, not icecream truck)- ROTF Runabout and Runamuck


    I have many others, but there are too many to list :p

    Universe Cosmos to Rumble and Frenzy, possibly with the yellow fin thingy removed. Pobably modded with RH Rumble's piledrivers and part of hound's hologram projector thingy.

    ROTF Rollbar to Motomaster, using 4 Jazzes for the other four stunticons.

    Here's a couple I've been planning... If I ever get finished painting my movie style Bombshell, I'd like to do kickback and Shrapnel; Ninja Sideswipe with Snake eyes- HA Sideswipe, painted mostly black and gunmetal with a custom Snake eyes figure to go with him(if I can figure out how to make him) ; and the idea I wantto do most... Fosilized Animated Grimlock. He's the first idea for a custom I ever had way back in the day(about 8 months ago) and as soon as I find some adequate plastic bones that I can cut in half long ways, I'll be starting on it.

    If all goes well with my 1:18th scale movie Blackout project, I plan to do a 1:18th scale movie Starscream using the TRU F-22. After that, (if I win this auction) I was thinking of doing a 1:18th scale Jetfire out of an old Joe Night Raven.

    You sure you want the list? I've got a Notepad file with all my ideas - and it's a doozy. Well, you asked for it:

    GEARION

    All 8 Real Gear Robot molds combine into this mighty warrior! Concept thread here: Mock-up for GEARION - the Real Gear Combiner

    -----------------------------------------------

    Name: REFUSE (from Classics Mirage/some other bot's arms/random plastic debris. all SMASHED WITH A HAMMER!)
    Faction: Autobot/Junkion
    Function: Coward
    Motto: "When the going gets tough, the tough
    hide under the table"

    Bio:

    REFUSE has always been a big worry for the leaders of Junk. Whereas most Junkions can heal themselves with whatever pile of scrap is handy, Refuse is way too focused on the speed on his newly cobbled-together alt-mode. He is also the worst example of a coward - at the first sign of an enemy, he immediately transforms and speeds away. Some take this as compensation for his poor healing abilities.
    When eventually forced to fight, Refuse is almost impossible to hit. Dodging every shot, blocking every punch, he waits for the perfect opportunity to thrust his dagger right through through the spark of his foe. It's a difficult task to get him to fight, but well worth the effort.


    Weapon: Electro-dagger (attach random bot's sword tip to Mirage's electro-disrupter)

    Note: Refuse's weapon could be more accurately described as a smallish sword, but he prefers to call it a dagger. Whatever.

    Tech Specs:

    Strength: 3
    Intelligence: 7
    Speed: 10
    Endurance: 7
    Rank: 6
    Courage: 1
    Firepower: 2
    Skill: 8

    -----------------------------------------------

    ANIMATED STUNTICONS

    Motormaster from Voyager Prime
    Dead End from Bumblebee (leg)
    Wildrider from Lockdown (leg)
    Breakdown from Jazz (arm)
    Drag Strip from Blurr (arm)

    (All need head mods)

    -----------------------------------------------

    Name: SUBMERGE (from Movie Blackout (heavily modded to resemble a submarine))
    Faction: Autobot
    Function: Surprise Attack
    Motto: "No-one expects the Underwater Inquisition"

    Bio:

    SUBMERGE can always be relied on to surprise the Decepticons from the rear. He takes advantage to the fact that no-one from Cybertron has taken an underwater alt-mode, neither do they bother to look there.
    Submerge often spends his time looking at the amazing ocean life Earth has to offer. He also likes to watch television while at the Autobot base. He has aquired a bad habit of quoting during battle. Luckily he knows how to keep his vocal processor shut when the enemy can't see him.

    Weapon: The Element Of Surprise

    Submerge is well trained in the art of Metallikato. He also uses various techniques from judo, tae-kwon-do and karate to keep his opponents on their toes.

    Tech Specs:

    Strength: 7
    Intelligence: 7
    Speed: 9
    Endurance: 7
    Rank: 6
    Courage: 10
    Firepower: 4
    Skill: 9

    -----------------------------------------------

    ANIMATED COMBATICONS

    Onslaught from Ultra Magnus (head mod)
    Swindle from Swindle (duh)
    Brawl from Lockdown (add tracks to legs, change car roof/front window to rotating turret, head mod)
    Blast Off from Lugnut (head mod (actual neck - see headshots done in Paint), no other modding, space shuttle made no damn sense)
    Vortex from Jetstorm (add rotors, head mod)

    -----------------------------------------------

    FUN-SIZE DEFENSOR

    Hot Spot from Energon Wideload/Dustorm (modded to resemble fire truck/new head/ get rid of that damn arm)
    First Aid from Legends Brawn (head mod/add ambulance lights and bits)
    Groove from Legnds Beachcomber (maybe head mod)
    Blades from Legends Blades (doy)
    Streetwise from Legends Jazz (head mod/add police lights)

    -----------------------------------------------

    FUN-SIZE MENASOR

    Motormaster from Cyb. Armorhide (add more shoulder articulation)
    Drag Strip from Legends Hot Shot
    Dead End from Legends Wheelie
    Breakdown from Legends Rodimus
    Wildrider from Legends Jazz

    (all need head mods)

    -----------------------------------------------

    Ultrabots combine to form...
    GIGANTION

    Fortitron from Cyb Metroplex
    Altitude from Cyb Evac
    Blizzard from Cyb Dark Crumplezone
    Max Ammo from Cyb Def Scattershot
    Akimbo from Classics Optimus Prime

    -----------------------------------------------

    ANIMATED PROTECTOBOTS

    Hot Spot from Voyager Optimus Prime (add rear end and ladder, head mod)
    First Aid from Soundwave (head mod, ambulance bits, chest mod, add groove for more shoulder movement/better arm mode arrangement) (arm)
    Groove from Oil Slick (head mod, replace ram's skull with actual police bike bits, shave off spikes, add waist and elbow swivels) (leg)
    Blades from Jetstorm (add rotors, head mod) (arm)
    Streetwise from Jazz (head mod/add police lights) (leg)

    -----------------------------------------------

    Armorhide Team

    6 Cyb. Armorhides combine to form Mega-Hide.
    Each one can form an arm, a leg, the torso or the crotch.
    All need mods to the shoulders and waist for enhanced articulation. Also, combined mode head is basically a bigger, more classic-gestalt-style version of the normal Cyb. Armorhide head design. Needs hands, maybe feets.

    -----------------------------------------------

    Movie Punch/Counterpunch

    Made from Movie Landmine (really)
    Mods needed: Shaving the forearms and 'collar' so that the forearms and head can rotate around better; making the vehicle mode roof fold down for a more proportioned chest in Counterpunch form; drilling a hole in said roof for a second gun; make the 'grill face' rotate at the round pieces, then make a Punch head to put under there, then make the 'grill face' a Counterpunch face.
    Paint: Subdued blue and black with gold highlights. Erase the Autobot symbol and add a Decepticon symbol on the underside of the 'head panel'.

    -----------------------------------------------

    Classics Sandstorm

    Made from Cyb. Hardtop
    Mods needed: New head, bits for helicopter mode

    -----------------------------------------------

    Movie Cosmos

    Made from Movie Legends Scorponok
    Mods needed: a shiteload of putty to make a sort of spaceship 'shell', somehow working an actual head in there (maybe rotating the body/engine bit around), replace claws with engine thrusters, cut off tail, remove scorpion legs)

    -----------------------------------------------

    Classics Scrounge

    Made from SWTF General Grievous (Wheel bike...duh)
    Mods needed: new head, cut off all the spiky bits on the wheel, putty to make the wheel part look like Scrounge's wheel mode (refer to TFWiki.net article), make arms and legs into boosters (not on original wheel mode, but there's nowhere to hide them otherwise)

    -----------------------------------------------

    Well, I warned you :D
