    so i've been on a cassette kick lately and want to make updates of the beast tapes. seeing botcon overkill really got me going on this. so i was thinking of using the cybertron jungle planet optimus prime for beast box and then the tm/armada airazor mold for squalk talk. i thought just used energon divebomb for st, but i thought the size different would be too weird unless i downsized bb to using optimus minor. anyone thoughts would be great

    and just so no one has to ask, the other tapes i'm working on right now are ratbat from tm2 sonar, garboil from divebomb, and howlback from armada cheetor

    that's actually not a bad idea, but neither of them are out yet. and i can't say i'm too fond of those real gear figures. only one i have is booster x-10, but high score does look cool

    It's a 2007 update of these two IMO, if I had superior KB skills I would do it myself. Good luck man, can't wait to see what you have in store.

    QFT! I'd have to say, I've been mulling around the idea of making one of the same for myself. /props to Hicks Royel + Alt customs :)

    Yeah, Highscore 100 and Booster X10 seem to be the best choices, simply because theyre small, pieces of technology, and one looks like a monkey, the other is a bird.

    i'm not necessarily lookin to make them up to date. more like i'd be making them for the beast era since that's why i'm doing with the other former cassettes. also forgot to mention that seeing overkill at botcon made me want to make slugfest from bwneo saberback

    Yeah he did, but don't ask him to commission anything for you cause he's slower than evolution. Just ask Icanfly.

    As for updating the duo for a classics feel the two figures mentioned are certainly the best bet. Wow that Nightbeat 7 is pretty close already.

    For Beastwars-esk figure, any of the Primals would work... Squawktalk... hmm Maybe Air Razor or Prowl.

    Personally, I've got an idea for adding Squawktalk to my alt Beastbox, but it's gonna have to wait till after I finish this Galvatron 2.0.
