    I'm thinking of making a movie team of sunticons out of mainly normal figures and 2 repaints. the ones that i haven't thought out yet are Motermaster and Wildrider. I can't remember which Stunticon Wildrider looks almost identical to in vehicle mode and robot mode. Was it Brakedown or Dead End?

    My memory is dodgy atm but I think Breakdown (Lamborghini) and Dead End (Porsche) had similar transformation and robot modes whereas Wildrider (Ferrari) had the simplest transformation of them all and his robot mode slightly differed. This is based simply off the G1 toys.

    All 4 cars had the same transformation scheme. Fold front back, pull down legs, pull out arms. Drag Strip was the only one that had little bits added onto that for his chest and feet.

    Yes they did, but Breakdown and Dead End had that one extra step for their legs which differs to Wildriders, his was just the one step for his legs.

    Oh right. They fold out from the sides on a hinge instead of being pulled down on a slide.

    I know at least for that one episode where the Autobots masqueraded as Stunticons, the breakdown (har) was like this:

    Optimus - Motormaster
    Jazz - Dead End
    Windcharger - Wildrider
    Sideswipe - Breakdown
    Mirage - Dragstrip

    Just going off of that, Windcharger was a Pontiac Firebird, Wildrider was a Ferrari 308. Looking at just the G1 toys, Wildrider has a similar flat front as Breakdown's Lambo, but also has the roundness in the main body as Dead End's Porsche. If you had to pick one, I'd say go with Dead End.

    So what most of you are saying is that i should just repaint a movie dead end (or Slap Dash, or Nightbird) to look like Wildrider?
