    Which Gobot should I make next?

    Since I had fun making Universe Crasher last week, I've been thinking about my next character. So I figured I'd post a list of some possibilities.

    Cy-Kill (WIP)
    Leader-1
    Fitor
    Road Ranger
    Turbo
    Cop-Tur
    Loco
    Tux
    Puzzler

    Turbo and L1 might be more feasible since there are already Classics molds I can use. The others might require additional work. Anyway, your suggestions are welcome as always.

    Leader-1. Is my choice, but either one could work.

    How about Cy-Kill from the Oil-Slick from animated?

    Didn't Plowking make that Cy-Kill? That was one of my favorite customs of the year. But I'm trying to stay away from the Animated aesthetic right now. I want to keep it within Classics/Universe. Although that can still be achieved using the Oilslick mold so long as the proper mods are made.

    I really wish the Cybertron Lugnutz mold was a deluxe size.

    Twin Spin is pretty cool. And I've always wanted to make a modern day Puzzler, which to me was always the "Other Menasor".

    But then again, I'd like to stick with repaints and minor mods. So it might just be L1 or Turbo. I'd really love to make Loco, though. As he's one of the Gobots I had as a kid.

    I like Twin Spin, plus having a SeaKing Chopper to add to the 'copter TF ranks would rock!

    A modern day Puzzler with Classics would be sicko!:drool: 


    If I am not mistaken, Puzzler is one of only two "perfect transformation" Gestalts. The other being RID RailRacer! That is, for now!:ev: 

    Loco=Astrotrain! Minor mod/repaint!

    Hmm...Bad Boy is certain a possibility.

    And for Leader-1, which molds would you recommend? Acid Storm, Energon Starscream, Marvel Crossovers Ironman?

    How 'bout that new Marvel X-overs Thor when it comes out? I think that could rock the Bad Boy look!

    I would say Acid Storm for Leader-1, Iron Man is loosely based on a F-35 Lightning, doesn't really scream Leader-1 to me the way Acid Storm does. Your custom, your call though!

    head swap, et voila!

    only problem I have with the mold is back kibble, though the toy is probably a more suitable size class

    some problems solve themselves :)  I look forward to it

    25th Anny Starscream might work too since the white/light gray is there. Either that or the Classics Starscream I have.

    And yes, I did see a pic of Heatseeker and thought of Ironman as a possibility.
