    i like the transformers rescuebots show , but i'm not a fan of the barely transformable figures, so my idea was to find existing figures to modify/custom into the team. so far i've got generations inferno as heatwave, & generations blades/cybertron evac as blades. im still not sure which base to use for boulder, but i've narrowed down chase to either generations redalert or generations tracks. i thought i'd see which you thought would work better, also let me know if you think of any ideas for which boulder should be, let me know. thanks!

    What about Prime RID bulkhead or Animate Sentinal Prime as boulder?

    Ideas:
    -Crossovers Hulk (or The Thing) as Boulder
    Hulk (Bulldozer) - Transformers Crossovers - TFW2005

    -Crossovers Spider-Man as Blades
    Spider-Man - Transformers Wiki

    -I think your choice of Tracks works well for Chase, and with the legs the other way around like Wheeljack's I think it works even better.

    -and how about these for Heatwave?
    File:Universe2008 G1Inferno.jpg - Transformers Wiki (or Hot Spot)

    or this KO, which I actually have, and it's quite decent. Better than any other of the 100+ KOs I have! Robo Revolution Drikold Robot Transformer Fire Truck Inferno Hyperwiz | eBay

    or this guy from Transformers Go! Although I think his proportions are a bit wonky, if you use the police car from TF Go! as Chase, then you could combine them!
    Transformers Go - G03 - Ganou Samurai - Fire Truck
    Transformers Go - G01 - Kenzan Samurai - Police Car

    OR
    you could go all Animated!

    Chase: http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Jazz_(Animated)
    Boulder (modified from one of these. I think Blitzwing would work the best/easiest):

    yeah i have universe/generations inferno as heatwave, and cybertron/generations evac/blades as blades. i do think tracks looks closer to chase than red alert, but i think red alert is an easier custom, just add paint mostly. with the tracks mold i think i'd have to swap the head plus make/add lightbars.

    as for boulder i use to have the armada scavenger, i don't like how his legs look, i think he leans forward to much, he's right type of vehicle but not quite there in robot mode. however i do like idea of using the hulk buldozer, all he really needs is a head swap or remold.

    Another thought that just came to mind is to possibly use the Longrack/Hoist/Ransack mould as Boulder.

    http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Ransack_(Universe_2003)

    or this KO (which I plan on making into http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Sledge_(Classics) . It's of good quality and has die-cast parts:

    I also often use this Identify Your Unknown Transformer - www.tfu.info to find moulds to fit other characters. You'll need to go through each colour.

    I have two of the Go figures as heatwave & chase (better heads would be good) the evac remold of voyager blackout as Blades ( whom I have renamed Evac as Blades should be a psycho) and hulk-dozer as boulder
