    I wanted to make a sort of request and brainstorming thread for the new Animated Figures.

    I myself have finally gotten a hold of every Animated figure out in duplicate so I need some fresh ideas! I am currently working on a G1 Starscream like the one Ne0 posted. I am also working on a G1 Galvatron using Megatron Voyager class. So start posting ideas, hopefully this will become a nice big thread full of reference pics and ideas from the community.

    Cheers!

    I reckon a modded Ratchet would make for a kickarse Trailbreaker... and of course there's the already-bandied-about mod of Cybertron-mode Prime into Kup.

    I really want to see Blackarachnia kitbashed back into Elita-one,

    (I should imagine it'd be best to try and make her alt mode be some sort of cybertronian motorbike)

    But that's so far beyond my kit bashing abilities that it's not even funny :p 

    And I'm curious as to how Prowl would look repainted into his G1 colours,
    as there's a surprising number of homages to the original design
    (his forhead crest and his "wings" among others)
    that would probably really pop out when repainted.

    And I'm quite surprised I havn't seen any Ironhide repaints from Ratchet yet.

    that sounds real cool cant wait for that. i am considering using starscreams head on a neckless lockdown to make roadscream. tfmaster had done one with an alternator and i think it would work for him. how about cybertron optimus as rodimus?

    i would like to do prowl in to smokescreen with some exshust on his arms.
    im sure ive seen g1 style prowl some were
    the kup out of prime looks cool
    and maybe gnaw(sharktercon) out of bulk head
    hot rod out of jaz
    blur out of lock down
    springer may be earth megatron
    junkions out of oil slip
    may be some stuntacons out of bulkhead,jaz, lockdown,
    and i no other ppl didnt like it but i think it might work arcee out of bulmbee
    thats all i can think of so far

    Ooh, I like the idea of Smokescreen from Prowl, that could be interesting. And I like your thinking with the Sharkticon too...

    Blurr's already getting his own mould anyway, I think.
    And I'll be interested to see how that Hot Rod turns out!

    LOL:eek:  Too kind sir. This thread is not just for me but for everyone, I see all kinds of awesome ideas coming out and because everyone does thing different we will see all kind of new takes on these guys. Screamer is in the works as well what base for Cyclonus?

    I am definitely trying. After I finish up some prior projects I will be working on mostly TF:A. Galvatron will be awesome!

    well i am working on grimlock not doing much right now just fixed that chest gap. i am icluding a pictorial how to below the pics are in order. to do it my way you have to disassemble the head and knock out the jaw pin but it is well worth it because my mod makes it part of the transformation rather than a removable plate. hope my pics help i dont have time right now to do a proper how to

    traced chest cavity with paper

    cut pieces out of styrene overlay parts are thinner gauge

    fitted collar pieces to main piece with small strip of styrene bending to match angle of collar to chest
    http://i214.photobucket.com/albums/cc89/anovasinn/DSC01995.jpg

    took the head apart to install pivot bar make pivot bar aprox 2.5mm maybe 2.8 unsure

    then glue bar to chest piece you made -be careful not to get glue on your figure. ;) 
    beast mode with new piece

    and viola chest gap is gone. i still need to add lower tabs and clean up the bottom edge but hopefully you get the idea. on mine i want the red band to go around the front of the chest. to be anime correct omit large overlay piece. also remeber when looking at this i have not sanded it or added any putty to blend it all together.

    all pictures

    Top bit of work there, Nova! :D  Very clean-looking so far - can't wait to see how it looks all finished and painted up!
    Although your last pic there comes up as a repeat of the one where you're cutting the tube...

    Looks good on that Grim Anovasinn....

    If you would, be sure to post finished pics in a thread of its own (all the pics actually from start to finish)....on your chest plate mod

    Could make for a nice tutorial.
