    Is there any tarn mask that could go on siege megatron ? Or is there any way to put a decepticon logo on megatron face without gluing it or without any puddy or clay?

    How does this "Aile Strike Convoy" makes you feel?

    "Wow, they managed to hide his vehicle mode kibble really well!"
    On a more serious note, not how I'd like a gundam crossover. Give me transformers turning into sci-fi vehicles from the franchise instead of them just turning into the mechs, like an Optimus Prime who's a carrier with a bunch of mobile suits in the "trailer" with robot modes made to match stylistically and I'll be a happy camper.

    Something like this?

    What about Transformers that transform into transformable Mobile Suits, like Starscream that transforms into the Zeta Gundam, or Optimus prime transforming into the Wing Gundam (Who they also can transform into their respective Mobile Suit's Waverider and Neo Bord Mode)?

    [​IMG]

    Speaking of which, has any Transformer ever chosen something that has its own alternate mode as his alt mode?

    For mobile suits with alternate modes, I could see them as minor characters similar to Transformers Cybertron/Galaxy Force where they don't alter the designs and just look like those mobile suits main robot mode and alt and all because they're in disguise and trying to stay hidden, while I'd prefer more major characters to not end up just being mobile suits painted up to look like them in yoga positions, and instead have their own new designs that try to combine the aesthetics of both franchises together, with them turning into non-mobile suit vehicles and stuff from gundam, but with design cues of the MSs for their robot modes.

    When will a ROTB speculation and discussion thread get pinned in the movie forum?

    Only example i could think of is like Truckasaurus. It's a car crushing mechanical t-rex that folds into a trailer to be pulled to rallies.

    Like we desperately need some more dynamic, mecha-style TFs again. Take something like the MG Buster Gundam, give it a Prime-y head and paint scheme, and I'd eat that shit up.

    Because for the longest time that's what his name was among the fandom. Kinda like how we still call redecoes repaints even though "repaint" means something different and more specific than a colour change.

    Well, someone on the Gunpla subreddit may have something right up your alley...

    Coincidentally enough, the original line-art of both the Buster Gundam (And the TV version of Heavyarms) are designed by Mr. Kunio Okawara, the same designer that designed G1 Star Saber (With the Heavyarms at the right been a redesign by Hajime Katoki).

    TBH, the idea of having Hajime Katoki redesign some TF characters like an MP Star Saber or Armada Convoy Ver. ka is something I can get behind.

    I'd kill for more dynamic, anime-esque, mecha style TFs, like the stuff we got in Victory, Cybertron, and more recently, the Flame Toys model kits designed by Akira Amemiya.

    I'd actually love to see someone like Katoki, or hell, Akira Amemiya design TFs for a new toyline or TV show.

    Why can't we just retcon RID Scourge into Nemesis Prime?

    Because he already is? They just hadn't come up with that name in specific yet, and in Japan Nemesis Prime is called Black Convoy, and what's Scourge's name in japan? Black Convoy. Though it becomes a bit weird with the first main western Nemesis Prime, the one from Armada, being named Scourge in Japan instead of the typical Black Convoy but let's just not think about it.

    Scourge is a far better name for him than just "Nemesis Prime".
    As in it's an actual name.

    Come to think of it I think going forward Nemesis Prime should just be called and be reinventions of Scourge from RID.

    Well we need a new name for the G1 Scourge. Any ideas?
