    Putting together a Lost Light crew together in action figure form is something I've been thinking of doing for a while now, and something I'm sure many others have done, as it's the only piece of current Transformers fiction I feel any real attachment to. The Transformers is good, but it doesn't click with me in quite the same way, and the Robots in Disguise cartoon is okay, but doesn't really leave a long lasting impression

    Anyway, out of sheer boredom I started to compile a list of crew members and possible figures to represent those characters. I was focusing mainly on the Classics aesthetic when choosing these figures, but I'll also be suggesting alternatives further on. I'll divide things into categories to make things a bit simpler

    The idea behind this is that, should someone decide to put together their own Lost Light Crew, this list is here to let them know what's available to represent which characters

    One more thing, if I include say for example, Classics Rodimus, I'm also including all other uses of the mold that use that name, ie. United, Henkei, RTS, etc. It's just easier than listing them all out

    If I forget any crew members, let me know. With the amount of them, it's easy to forget. Figures too!

    Here's my setup:

    [​IMG]

    Left is Getaway's crew, center is Team Rodimus, right is off-ship characters and far-right front are dead characters. I still need a Ratchet, Bluestreak, Smokescreen and Inferno. TFCC Chromedome will be replaced with TR Chromedome, TFCC Rewind might get replaced with TR Rewind, FOC Blaster will be replaced with TR Blaster, FOC Ravage may be replaced with TR Ravage, TR Getaway will be added, it's unlikely that I'll replace Cloud Rodimus with TR Rodimus. I haven't decided what I'll do in regards to TR Siren.

    Wow. That's almost my exact setup except I only keep the current crew and remove them as they leave or die.. I do wish I would have bought Cloud Rodimus when he was "only" $90.

    I took a completely different route and used Kreons:

    Now mind you it's an incredibly small collection that I had to kitbash most of, but on the plus side it's easy to "fix" the figures and they were pretty cheap.

    I would make an argument for TAV Origin Drift as an alternate option. I've thought about getting that set for my classics Drift and Jazz, because I like both of the decos.

    In the back row behind Magnus and Megatron (they're too tall because of the shelf above them) are Universe Inferno, RTS Grapple, and Energon Landmine.

    The proportions and colors are way off, but i think Real Gear Spy Shot 6 makes an acceptable Runk stand-in.

    ha. Just by virtue of Spy Shot's giant forehead, I don't disagree.

    I've found MP Ravage to be a pretty good size for the crew

    I'm going to use RID Ratchet as my Ratchet.
