    Hi guys Since I tried to sell me Animated Ultra Magnus custom but without any luck I though... Maybe turn it into Motormaster or Hotspot
    I already have ideas for the limbs of both Menasor and Defensor, but since I'm gonna sell it when I'm done... I'd better get as much Moolah as possible :D 

    Idea1: DEFENSOR
    -Hotspot = modded Ultra magnus (got it already)
    -Groove = modded Prowl or Oilslick (got the last one)
    -Blades = modded Leader Megatron or Voyager Megs (got the last one)
    -Streetwise = modded Jazz (got it already)
    -First Aid = modded Rachet or Sounwave or deluxe Bulkhead

    Idea2: MENASOR
    -well same as BOTCON except Motormaster = Ultra magnus and got Jazz already

    I think it is important to not focus on what's going to make a custom sell better, as much as it is important to worry about what's going to make it epic. After all, "epic-ness" plotted against "money sold for" is generally exponential with a regression (r) value of 0.978. And also 99% of statistics and numbers are just made up. ;)  :lol 

    Anyways, I think the first idea sounds better, as it would be really nice to see a Defensor in Animated. We have Ratchet, why not add a few bots who can fix you up without being completely grumpy in the process?

    And just a completely out there suggestion, but what about modding a deluxe Prowl into Blades? Fill in the legs where the wheels used to be, and add some rotors, maybe change up the front windshield a bit until it looks like a copter. Yeah, it's a bit crazy, but that's never stopped a Radicon before. :)

    Your maths are incorrect, A1! (just kidding)

    Anyway, go with Defensor.

    I had an idea to make an Animated Defensor.

    Feel free to use my theoretical recipe (since I haven't gotten around to it):

    Voyager Prime = Hot Spot
    Activators BB = Streetwise
    Activators Ratchet = First Aid
    Activators Megatron = Blades

    * not sure on Groove, Legends groove is probably too small. I tossed around the idea of Energon Arcee for Groove.

    Granted, Defensor won't be huge, but he's a defensive combiner by nature. Smaller and (perhaps) more agile might fit his role better.

    Defensor was done - it was a charity auction.
