Hey GodDog if you're looking for a cool Dia Atlas figure homage you should check out King Atlas from the Universe line. It has shit for articulation since it's made from the G2 Starscream mold, but it looks really friggin' cool.

Hmmm... A zodiac transformers combiner actually sounds like a cool idea. A Chinese zodiac one would be cool also You'd have some cool animals to work with...

Rat
Ox
Tiger
Rabbit
Dragon
Snake
Horse
Goat
Monkey
Rooster
Dog
Pig - or a Boar which is the Japanese symbol

The Chinese zodiac is definitely a better idea than the other zodiac.

Hey Gog. I'm Musifo2 on Twitter. Just call me Matt

I think what makes the Prime Starscream mold work for Metalhawk is how he's been protrayed in IDW, where he has a semi-Prime aesthetic. There are a couple customs of on Radicons, and while I don't think any have been perfect yet, it blows the Botcon toy out of the water. I actually think the Voyager mold works better for him.

Man now I really want to get some beast saga... Maybe get the ones that interest me and throw them in the pol til Fort Max gets here. See how big I can get that box!

The sea starter, bat, giraffe, elephant, lion and swordfish interest me, any recommendation of others? Think that'd give me a neat pair of teams to oppose each other.

As for the combiner question, I always thought an Autobot counterpart to the Seacons would've been awesome. Aquabots or something.

You could have a racing speed boat, regular speed boat, air craft carrier, sea plane and a sub

You realize that'll be a Botcon troop builder now that you've asked for it....

That custom Metalhawk is reminiscent of IDW's willowy Metalhawk. Neat.

Also, not a combiner, but there was a set of Greek Zodiac-inspired TFs in a BotCon comic ages ago: The Covenant. One of them even had a toy. Scorpius/Sandstorm was a re-painted Scorponok.
