    If you could just get Classic Legends Jetfire to fit into the Starscream shell, you could make Starscream too.

    Why not put Legends Starscream on the shell instead? :p

    Because Legends Jetfire is the color of SG Starscream. I'm making SG Pretenders.

    Does Legends Hot Shot fit in the Bumblebee shell? SG Goldbug being a redeco of Cyb. Hot Shot and all.

    If you put it in car mode and flip it to stand on it's head, yes, you can make it fit inside and close the Bumblebee shell. I just used the Goldbug toy because I thought it was more Goldbug-y. I'm using Classic Legends Bumblebee (the Hot Shot mold) as Legends Sunstreaker.

    I'd assume he meant for the Starscream shell.

    If you lack Pretender shells, you can always fall back on Power Suits. They are the original Cyberverse playset!

    This question probably ought to be posed in the Radicons section (and for all I know, it's been done already), but has anyone ever tried making Pretender shells for their figures? Every now and then I wonder how difficult it would be to buy some generic 12" action figure, cut it in half and hollow it out, and make a Pretender out of some unsuspecting Transformer. If somebody were to do this for, say, Generations Skullgrin, I think that would be :bowdown: -inducing.

    I think you'd need a much fatter doll than what's currently available.

    Haha, I especially like the Jazz one because it looks kinda like his original pretender figure.
