    Every time I see an update to this thread, I get excited. Love the Viper head for Coptur. Fitor looks great. He was my first Gobot, so you get nostalgia points

    These look great. Any ideas on who your going to retool/paint to make Crasher, Turbo or Scooter?

    Crasher was my first inspiration from Hasbro! She's the official repaint of Classic Mirage in that big-five photo, at the back.
    Turbo... I thinking a Titans Return Chromdome/Getaway body with Kup's head... Heck, Brawn's head should work a lot better, but I don't want another Cy-kill lookalike in the mix.

    Understandable.
    I've actually been thinking about which figures could be retooled into other figures myself. Coneheads from Aerialbots, CW Optimus into Thunder Clash, TR Megatron into Tarn, TR Hotrod into Thunderhawk.
    My list also includes TR Hotrod into Crusher and CW Ironhide to Smallfoot. I've found heads for them on Shapeways. But not ordered the parts as I have those other projects to finish first.

    TR Hotrod would make a good Turbo.

    PS turbo rod 1.jpg

    Hmmmm, maybe I can cut off the arm exhaust rods, to make him less Hotrod-ish.

    But still, there's no green windshield on his chest.
