    Years ago, i started making my own stunticons. Then combiner wars happened. Most of my customs were later repurposed or redone into new, but i can't bring myself to do anything with my motormaster. So, here he is. Some of the old black paint has chipped off, that will be touched up. With his targetmaster who will eventually have a silver body and legs. But i need names for these guys. Can anyone suggest any?

    Don't do anything to it: leave it with the chipped paint and all, it looks like corrosion. Which brings me to the names:

    Name: "Corrode"
    Targetmaster Partner: "Malaise"
    Function: Saboteur

    "All things crumble before me... including you."

    Bio: Corrode is not well-liked in the Decepticon Army, due to the fact that everything he touches...corrodes. Equipment, buildings...even allies. One touch from him can start a corrosive process that eats nearly any metal or material. Uses this ability to sabotage enemy equipment or harm enemy personnel. For enemies, this is a painful way to meet their end, and the Autobots despise this walking nightmare as much as his own allies do. Partnered with Malaise, who is made of an unknown allow that seemingly resists Corrode's corrosive touch. Malaise transforms into an energy-drain pistol, which deprives its' target of power. Subject's one weakness is refueling: he must have special methods of refueling, lest he corrode the refuel equipment and possibly contaminate the energon supplies of the Decepticons.

    Agreed! I'd say dust him a little and then hit him with some clear coat to keep any further chippage from happening.

    Or maybe switch it up and say he's Shattered Glass Ambulon: once a brave Decepticon, now defected to the evil Autobots?

    Robot - Charr
    Targetmaster - Colt

    They share a telepathic gestalt allowing them to think as a single mind, so they react much faster than other targetmaster teams who must rely on verbal communication.

    Charr is heavy and powerful, Colt is fast and accurate. Charr/Colt is laser-spitting death on wheels. With his sheer mass, he can smash through any heavy blockade - and he can vapourize smaller barricades without even slowing down.

    I think they can be Hammerstrife and targetmaster Null. And i think you can make a repurpose on this with red and black battle damage. I think they can be a power duo from Rust sea, renegades and angry transformers.

    Thanks for all the suggestions everyone!

    I love this! I have an old OC character called Corrode from my fanfics years ago, although he was basically a redshirt brother for my main character and died (and I actually forgot he was a thing until I read your post). I may repurpose this guy into that Corrode and adjust his history to include your bio. Only thing I'd change is have Malaise made out of the Master Element, same as Fortress's Master Sword and the Zarak shield. They managed to steal a tiny amount of the rare ore and coated Malaise in it to provide him protection against his partner.

    Although I don't have any SG and don't intend to, I like this idea.

    Good suggestions, but Smolder is taken by the PCC fire engine on my shelf.

    And there's the birthplace for him (and by extension, all his brothers).


    And thanks for everyone who suggested to keep the chipped paint as corrosive battle damage. Really good idea, and one I think I'll stick with. Gives him a bit of character. Although yes, he does need a good dusting. Didn't realise how bad it had got until I saw the pics. :lol

    Sounds like a plan! In fact, you still have it where Corrode "died", and somehow came back, but with this corrosive power.

    YES! After all, three of the five guys survived their 'death' (they were a combiner that got ripped apart. The main bot survived as my main, one of the limbs was on life support and was the main's character arc of trying to bring him back and a third turned up in a later RP with these characters). So they can all have survived and eventually come back. Although now I think about it, I think Corrode did come back as the villain in a sequel story where he was resurrected by an interdimensional being, only to fall at his brother's hand. But since this is for the collection, not canon for my stories, it could be altered since I don't remember those stories and I don't have them saved (we're talking 2006 when they were written). Thank you kindly for your help.
