    So I bought seige sideswipe and figured out that he makes a great cybertronian Rapido. Just need to shave down Topspin's gun so it sits right and find a Rapido head. Anybody have a botcon one they don't need?

    Good idea!

    Since Botcon figures are rare collectibles with few people willing to depart with one, I'll recommend the Combiner Wars Offroad as a close proximity instead. The head shape is close enough with the exception of the mouth, which you could either overlook and paint blue or make a faceplate covering it.

    That's brilliant! Thanks for the suggestion looking into getting one, i am a little concerned about the head size but I will grab my combiner wars streetwise and compare them tonight.

    You don't need to to take the head from rapido you can clone/mold it! Read this: Heavy/Scratch: - cheap at home castings for about $3.50 (but you still need a rapido head to clone it from)
