    Since I got Universe Octane I thought he would make a good Motormaster, but what fun would that be without the rest of the Stunticons. I snagged some rubber bands and made this mock -up and I think it actually works surprisingly well.

    Motormaster -> Octane
    Breakdown -> Red Alert
    Wild Rider -> Barricade
    Dead End -> Jazz
    Drag Strip -> ????? *bumblebee is currently standing in*
    Head -> ???? *Actionmaster Snarl is standing in*
    Hands -> Animated Snarl


    I need some advice on what might make a good drag strip. I was looking at some minicons, but I think they might be too small to be the same size as the others. I also could use some advice on what would make a good head. I have a bunch of scrap 1/144 gundams that I plan to use to create all of the attachment kibble.

    I know that I'm basically pegging the cars onto Octane, but If I were to collapse his legs down and freeze his shoulders then I would have to create some artificial articulation which would be a huge pain.

    I plan to remove the connectors from the now useless wings to create a chest shield for him. I'll probably also slice the crotch plate into two sections to it can move a bit better.

    Any advice or comments at all are very welcome!

    Thanks!

    Would a spychanger mirage be the size you are looking for for Dragstrip? Either way I'm excited to see how this turns out

    Actually, that was my original idea but I couldn't think of anything that would work well as a deluxe Onslaught or a legends Blast Off. Then I figured I could do Menasor instead.

    Well, I looked at combining them with the LoC optimus mold, but it would have just been way too clunky since he's too small. If you think about it, the centers of all 5 piece combiners are bigger than their limbs.

    I'll probably just leave it displayed as Menasor because, like you said, Octane would look majorly wonky next to the tiny legends dudes.

    I know you probably want the trailer look, but what about Cybertron Armorhide?

    I suppose that would also work. I'd have to add a bunch of joints to the shoulder area to get any articulation from him though. I'll experiment.
