    Firstly apologies for the quality of the photos, I was in a rush to share ;-)

    Generations Dragstrip as the base mould with Siege Pinpointer as Spoilsport. A natural fit?

    Sureshot from the classics Mirage/Dragstrip mould just seemed to tick all the boxes. The mould has been superseded by CW Dragstrip and Mirage by Siege so any excuse to keep this original classics moulds around.
    He's a race car, was primarily yellow so not too involved paintwise, minimal Mods that aren't too difficult if confident with a drill, I think it's a great fit. When you see Hasbro churning out multiple re-paints it's good when you find a perfect fit that they haven't.

    Nothing to difficult here:
    Had to bore out the fist hole to 5mm.
    Added a 5mm hole to the top of the Race car.
    Added paint Red, Orange and silver detailing.
    I'd like a new head but this Mirage mould is such a pinhead I haven't found a suitable donor yet.

    Next up Pointblank only without a spare Punch Dealer I have no idea who the donor body could be (open to suggestions)
    Anyhow enjoy :)

    That really works well. If you made it a package I'd swear it was standard release from back then.

    Nice. I used the same guy, but used the fansproject sidearm for spoilsport, so he could mount on the rear spoiler and fit in the hand without needing it widening.

    For Pointblank, I used the original classics Rodimus. If you can find the platinum version that came with the two junkions, it has a 5mm port moulded in under his right hand so he can wield a targetmaster sideways. But that (or some rare expensive japanese version of it) is the only version of the mould with that port.

    I had no idea classics Rodimus had a mould variation (something new everyday), I have that set so I'll add it to my candidate list.

    I wish I had a spare Punch/Counter punch - Hasbro need to get on that beacause that mould definitely would fit Pointblank like a glove.

    Neither did i until i bought the set and found the port by accident. Punch would be the perfect choice, shame he was a limited release. Missed out on him completely.

    Titans return deluxe hotrod makes an OK base for pointblank. Been done before, but if you are feeling adventurous remolding the windshield and replacing the arms would go a long way on that figure.

    The red repaint of Armada blurr would be another possibility. There was a cybertron blurr re-release of that figure too. With an AWFUL head but that's replaceable.

    He wouldn't fit in with your sure shot and his transformation is backwards but the 1 step rid blurr is begging for a pointblank repaint

    Cyberverse Bumblebee from the spark armor boat set might work as a base for a heavy remold custom he has a similar arms and legs folding pattern, or the deluxe class Bumblebee that comes with a piece of macadams. Cyberverse attacker drift is another option.

    Combiner force rid minicon power up sides wipe has some potential

    The last knight ww2 hotrod would make a really cool crosshairs

    Will need a lot more than a lick of paint but could work.

    Thoughts?

    Another W. I. P. from my ongoing 'lost target masters' project.

    Fracas
    Made from parts swaps and slight mods to cannon mode.
    I'd really appreciate some input on how to paint that gun barrel, should I attempt to incorporate blue into the black/grey colour scheme? As the part can still be used in Scourge's vehicle mode.

    I had considered that but those suckers are pin punched in.
    It's a nice alt mode though so I'm cool with it.
