    Admin delete if this is somewhere else but I couldn’t find it.

    I just got Ectotron the ghostbusters crossover figure and I love it. I know it’s some reused parts but it’s still awesome. Really has me hoping we get a b2tf or knight rider crossover.

    My point: I know we’ve had official crossovers (marvel and star wars) and not so official (viper from the combiners line with the cobra logo). Are there any others in the 35 year history of transformers line that you think would pass as a crossover? Official or not

    Transformers Energon Snowcat is G.I. Joe Snowcat vehicle.

    2007 movie deluxe Fracture is Crasher from Go-Bots.

    Unofficial... leader Studio Series Jetfire is unofficially X-men Blackbird X-jet? :p

    Would the Disney Label toys be considered crossovers?

    Mickey Mouse Trailer - Disney Label - Reflector @ TFW2005

    How about MP-10 Evangelion?

    MP-10G (Ghostbusters / Ecto 35) would fit with your Ectotron

    Optimus Prime (MP-10G) (Ecto-35) - Reflector @ TFW2005


    If commercial branding qualifies as crossover (not sure on that one)

    * Pepsi Prime
    * MP-711 (7-Eleven MP-10)
    * Primitive Optimus Prime & Shreddicus Maximus Optimus Prime and Shreddicus Maximus - Reflector @ TFW2005
    * Nike trainers
    * New Era capbots
    * BAPE Optimus Primes
    * Atmos MP-10s
    * PlayStation Prime & Megadrive Megatron

    The GI Joe F-14 Skystriker toy got a couple of Transformers-centric repaints as convention exclusive boxsets, if I remember correctly. Once as Starscream, and once as Jetfire.

    G1 Jetfire is a Robotech toy.

    As Tenscarymonkeys said, a few G1 Joe vehicles and figures were repainted as Transformers characters.

    The Vamp was Hound.
    The Hiss Tank was Shockwave.
    One of the Gi Joe motorcycles was repainted as Afterburner with a Marissa Fairborne figure.
    Bludgeon's skeletal samurai shell was the basis for his Gi Joe crossover figure.

    By extension, other franchises crossed over with Gi Joe figures over the years like several Street Fighter characters and Matt Trakker so technically Street Fighter and MASK share the Gi Joe toyline with several Transformers characters.

    There are repaints of Titans Return figures as Street Fighter characters too.

    Technically a Cobra Rattler could be repurposed as Viper and Tailwind.

    The Devil's Due TF Gi Joe crossover comics were great. There were some fantastic designs since Cobra reactivated the Transformers in the Ark and most of them turned into Cobra Vehicles.

    Optimus Prime: Hiss Tank
    Ironhide and Ratchet: Cobra STUN
    Gears: Trouble Bubble
    Sunstreaker and Sideswipe: Stinger Jeeps
    Starscream: Night Raven
    Thundercracker: Cobra Rattler
    I think Mirage turned into a Ferret ATV.


    Looking at the Tiger Force repaints, it's a shame they didn't repaint the Sky Striker as it could have been repurposed as G2 Hooligan or the movie Decepticon that homaged him.

    Catilla is crying out for a Battlecat repaint. The Pretenders could definitely accommodate a Masters of the Universe or Ninja Turtles crossover, especially Bludgeon, Longtooth and Octopunch for the Turtles.

    The Beast Wars dinosaurs would work for a Jurassic Park crossover though Megatron would definitely need a different colour scheme.

    A few others:

    The Takara Street Fighter Legends figures (Optimus as Ryu, Megatron as M. Bison/Vega, Rodimus as Ken, Arcee as Chun-Li)

    Scrapface from the Walmart Netflix line is an homage to Cobra's Scrapiron.

    Viper from Combiner Wars as another Joe homage.

    FunPub's Serpent.O.R. and drone B.A.T.S.

    Assorted Takara Star Wars and Hasbro Avengers/Marvel TFs. The latter got a comic where Mr. Fantastic designed mech suits for the Marvel heroes to fight alongside Transformers.

    Crazy thought:

    TR Ginrai in Ecto-35 colors with an alternate Stay Puft Marshmellow Man head and a Stay Puft ad on the trailer.

    I'd like Starscream's Ghost.

    The Terror Dogs retooled from TR Wolfwire/Weirdwolf with Dana and Tully Titanmasters.

    A CHUG/WFC scale Ectotron. Trying to think of a good base. PotP Counterpunch? Shoulders aside, I feel like his skeleton carries the look and the front rims wind up in the same place on the shoulders although they'd need to fold the opposite way. You could get this sacrificing one of the bot modes while resembling the existing Ectotron. The neo-retro Kenner KBs use proton packs designed for a 5 inch figure with a 5mm peg in place of the Kenner clip design so you could recycle that although the neutrina wand would need a retool, possibly from the Plasma series 6 inch GBs.

    I'd love to see some generic body tooled out as Ghostbusters drones in The Real Ghostbusters color schemes. My preference here would be Titanmaster compatible bodies so the TMs could be decoed like the old Super Fright Features exosuits.

    Maybe you could retool ER Arcee's shell as the Ghostbusters Answer the Call Ecto-1. It's a shell with a shape that could support a hatchback.

    I would kill for ER Prime to be in Evangelion Unit 01 colors. After all, the final movie is coming out this year...

    I love Crossovers. I love them because it puts characters up against situations that they are not accustomed to. And makes the world look bigger than what is in the show. And if the franchise dose not have a character from a different franchise that appear in a crossover you can always buy a figure from that line and add it to your other figures. That being said the fist crossover in the comics is non other then the web crawler menace Spider-Man. Back in there Crossovers line they had multiple Marvel characters who piloted Mech's of them selves. If you wanted to recreate the battles with Spider-Man and Megatron you can always get the 3.75 inch figure.

    GI Joe has been a staple on the TF franchise since the early comics and TV show. So the occasional Homage dose show up from time to time.
    Energon Snowcat.

    Marissa being the bridge for the original cartoons of TF and GI Joe. She finally gets a figure from Funpub.
    800px-TimelinesToy_marissa_and_afterburner.jpg
    Let us not forget when 4 of the Autobots became humans and the appearance of old Snake face him self.

    Hound in any line could be a Crossover in GI Joe himself.

    Oh look, Baroness got a kitty from Destro. Ya, I think I will not be petting that one anytime soon.

    SDCC Bludgeon

    With this you could argue any Seekers can be in the GI Joe line.
    StarscreamSkystriker.jpg
    Not many know or remember that G2 started in the GI Joe comics 4 months before the comic. And Megatron got his shiny new body from Cobra. So His toy is a Crossover in itself.
    397px-Marvel_GIJoe-139.jpg 800px-G2Megatron_toy.jpg
    Also another FunPub set.

    I Love IDW Transformers Universe. And What I loved more was when they did a Crossover with there GI Joe Comics. But nothing could have prepared me for there Revolution series. Bringing in ROM, Visionares, The Micronauts, MASK and Action Man.

    Speaking of MASK. In Prime S3 Optimus got his new alt mode from the Governments MASK division. Witch was going to be a spin off series to the show.

    Even the Mouse has his mitts in Transformers.

    Street Fighter.

    Angry Birds.
    Angry_birds_transformers.jpg
    One could argue that Jetfire being the first crossover before Spidy.
    796px-Jetfireg1toy.jpg
    Star Wars got into the action.
    800px-SWTF-toy_CommanderCody.jpg
    This is just weird for a crossover. And if you want a Unit-01, just buy the one you want to display with your TFs.
    Eva-optimus.jpg 412E8KW1T9L.jpg
    Ectotron is a fun figure, but missing his buddies. Get the Lego Ghostbusters and you are set. Plus Ghost Starscream fits in perfectly.
    800px-TFGB-multicover.jpg lego-ghostbusters-.jpg Henkei_ghost_starscream.jpg
    Remember Battle Beasts(Beastformers) Legends Monsterbots Titanmasters as the Beastformers.

    395px-MarsAttacksTF_cvr.jpg RCO023_1473561375.jpg 800px-TF-Generations-Titans-Return-Cosmos.jpg
    The new Crossover. Get any Terminator and stick it with a Transformer. Done.

    I was hopping for a better payoff with this mini series but seeing Mulder with Optimus and the TMNT was neat to say the least. Anyway Mega bloks Mulder for that one time.

    f86a7fd72434494b6b4393013a02bcd3.jpg
    Nice Idea. Mega Bloks Star Trek with the Transformers.

    If I did not think Transformers couldn't get weirder. Then I saw this.
    410px-MZvTF_Cover_1.jpg
    Just get a Mazinger Z figure next to Optimus.
    811xMqmbi0L._AC_SY606_.jpg
    No toy in a TF line. But Hasbro did make a Death's Head figure in the Marvel Universe line. Yes.

    Not in his green garb, but it is nice to have him in my TR shelf all the same.

    Gha! I have those on my shelf and completely forgot about them!



    Also, I think there's an argument to be made for the Downtown head for TR Fortress Maximus being a crossover

    Nick Fury and Dum Dum also had cameos in the early Transformers comics.

    Death's Head began in the UK Transformers comics and he encountered Doctor Who, Iron Man 2020 and the Fantastic Four.

    As for Ghostbusters, I think G1 Horribull would make a good hellbeast.

    Project Mullet
    Project Cruise
    Project Future

    Did the other crossovers get "Project" codenames?

    Anyhow- I think there is room for a dedicated franchise crossover toy thread- plenty of iconic vehicles from the 80s alone before you need to get to other decades!

    Speculate away!
