    so i was looking at alternators Swindle cause he's on my wishlist and i saw some pics of him in another thread and thought: "Bruticus must be made!" so i was thinking Brawl could be made from the mustang mold used for WJ and Grimlock and to replace his tank cannon, he could just have a huge shoulder cannon. Blast Off could be made using the Ford GT mold, Vortex from the Tracks mold, and Onslaught could be made using the Prime Dodge truck. i really wanna do this once i get good at painting and find a good connection port, and some good heads. (suggestions?)

    what say you?

    I thought that Onslaught would be
    more of a hummer guy than a truck guy.

    damn i forgot about BT 'Hide. a couple cannons would suit that alt mode better IMO (not the Scion, the Japanese hummer with a blue head)

    EDIT: your post count is hilarious

    I'd recommend looking at artists' work who have already done this sort of thing. Wikkid and TFmaster come to mind first.

    I'd go with bionicle/hero factory ball joints.
    That's what I use.

    If you go the Hummer route for Onslaught, then perhaps you can opt to use the Dodge Ram mold for Brawl. Maybe use the Mustang mold for Blast-off and keep what you had in mind with Vortex (Corvette).

    I honestly think you should look into some model kits for Brawl, Vortex, and Blast-off to do some reshells.

    alright so i think i'm gonna have Brawl use the Dodge Ram mold and give him a lot of guns, and for a more G1 look, i'll turn his legs and/or waist around. for Vortex, i'm gonna replace the shoulder launchers on Tracks with machine guns and maybe make some dual swords (like what DOTM Sentinel had but smaller and thinner) out of ROTF Grindor/TFTM Blackout rotor blades and make them fold for storage, and combine for a bigger melee weapon and so he can still create a vortex. for Blast Off, i may do some remolding, but i'm not sure yet but i do know that i'll give him guns to go on his legs. and they will all obviously be getting new or re-sculpted heads
