    Been wanting to do an updated Gutcruncher for awhile now, and TR Hardhead seemed like a perfect candidate. The Titan Master was named after the Stratotronic Jet Action Master Gutcruncher came with.

    Nice job. What's the name of the original Gutcruncher's partner drone? Any plans to include it with this version?

    Huh, that surprisingly works, good job!

    If I did an updated Gutcruncher I would of done him up from the Combiner Wars Silverbolt mold. Alt mode to reference the jet and robot mode to reference Gutcruncher himself.

    Thanks All!

    He came with the Stratotronic Jet, more of a transport vehicle, than it was a partner drone really. I thought about painting Stratos in colors that matched the jet more but I felt making it a mini-Gutcruncher (essentially) looked and worked better.

    At one point I actually thought about making one out of Classics Silverbolt with the same references. I couldn't come up with a good head that looked like Gutcruncher though, plus I wanted it to be more of a tank like the character was originally modeled after.

    Hmmmm. If you added the tank/jet thing from TR Terri-bull it could be the little tan tank from the G1 toy while representing the jet as well. Also, did you see this? Stratotronic - Transformers Wiki

    Yes! While you are at it, please repaint the upcoming Megatron/blitzwing as Actionmaster "Neutro Fusion" Megatron. The jet and tank modes are already there, plus you could use Galvatron's Headmaster robot with perhaps the Megatron face from the new figure to replace the galvatron face. Throw in a mini tank/jet vehicle for the headmasters and you've got a winner!

    Actionmasters are ripe for repaints in this line!

    I like the way you 2 think. I believe I will be adding Terri-Bull''s tank/jet drone to Gutcruncher and definitely looking into the Megatron repaint as well.

    I was not aware that IDW made Stratotronic into a separate character... this could open up some possibilities. Thanks!
