    I was curious, I've been building my classics 86 team for awhile now.

    I've got:
    Hot rod (battle in space)
    Rodimus prime (protector)
    Springer (defender)
    Blurr (generations)
    Grimlock (Masterpiece)

    I have a classics ultra magnus and no armor for him so I was wondering how would you suggest I fill out the missing members of the crew?

    I know about Kup perceptor and wreckgar so ill get them as they come out.

    So any help?

    Device Label Blaster, Generations Arcee, Universe Legends Wheelie - I think that covers the rest of them? Unless you want to get into the Decepticons as well.

    For Ultra Magnus, you either want a City Commander or push comes to shove, Animated Magnus or Titanium Ultra Magnus will do the job. Animated Ultra Magnus is your long shot, he won't quite fit with the rest and he is huge in stature, but aside from that he is a good representation of Ultra Magnus.

    I use Impossible Toys Arcee. Looks great but QC is terrible. She'll do the job until something better comes along.

    I'm lucky enough to have the City Commander armour for Magnus, although I don't like the way Defender looks so I am Springer-less for the time being.

    I've got Universe legends Wheelie and Henkei Grimlock (MP Grimlock goes on another shelf due to his size). Obviously we only have the one Dinobot for the time being, something I hope Hasbro will remedy in the future.

    As you say, Kup (who I already have) Perceptor and Wreck Gar are imminent, so I think that covers everyone?

    Decepticons are a different kettle of fish altogether as that could involve figures like the Quints and multiple Sweeps/Armada, for example.

    Sol_Fury, what do you mean by Generations Arcee? To my knowledge, there's sadly no such thing.

    She is going to be released as part of the Generations line in the future. The recent news of the new Warpath figure also mentioned that an Arcee was being lined up for Generations at some point.

    6" Titanium Magnus is probably the best looking. Aside from that... I guess the only things that are really missing are the other 3 dinobots. It would still be nice to get an official 3-mode Springer, but Defender is damn sexy on his own.

    Jazz & Bumblebee (there have been like 4 Classics versions, counting the Legends version) can help augment the Autobot side, and the Coneheads buff up the Decepticons a bit.

    Hmm, so it looks like I should go for:

    Gen Arcee
    Titanium Ultra magnus
    Legends wheelie

    Crap where do I get a cheap Wheelie and Magnus?

    Anybody know if the Wheelie repaint that was Target exclusive is any easier to get ahold of? Cause if I can get him I'll just repaint it into Wheelie.

    KOtoys is going to be getting the ko CC back in stock soon if you can wait it may be coming with the add on missiles and gun too and it will be cheaper than buying Titanium magnus

    If it still has the loose shoulder problem all you have to do is put some tape (preffarably electritians) on the inside of the armours shoulder pads

    As for wheelie you could hunt down the legends or the henkei set or you could wait for perfect effects scout sized version that they showed the desighns for a while back it probs wont be much more than the rape ebay price wheelie is going for now
