    If you can find one, PCC Heavy Tread is awesome, and fits in well with the Classics look.

    If you're saying you don't have Universe 2.0 Blades, the Cybertron Evac redeco, I'd easily recommend him. That was a great mold, and poses very nicely.

    U2.0 Silverbolt gets a lot of hate for his simplistic transformation, but I think he looks great and I don't regret buying him.

    There's some G2 stuff, I think. I honestly can't remember if they were WWII or WWI planes though.

    Lugnut is a truly amazing figure.

    If you like WWII stuff, the recent Highbrow might interest you.

    And how do you like him?

    Now you guys made me have to go look for ROTF lockdown. While looking him up at tfwiki I saw Turmoil. Now that is one mofo they have to make. LOOKS SICK!

    The autobot repaint of Mindwipe.. can´t remember the name. But he´s pretty cool and the vibrant colors make him a good fit in with classics.

    Ransack and Divebomb look real nice in Alt mode, but their bot modes leave a lot to be desired.

    BTW, can ROTF Lockdown be found at TJMaxx/Marshalls now? I read a thread, but not sure if that was miss communicated.

    They wrote HFTD Lockdown. I cannot find that on Google, so no clue if he was talking about the ROTF one that he found at TJMaxx.

    Highly recommended. I got his retool, Axor, for cheap and I love him too. He's an homage to G1 Axer, and a pretty good one considering it's the Lockdown mold.

    He's called Strafe I think. I own both Mindwipe and Strafe and they both look amazing.

    I am finding ROTF Lockdown at local TJ Maxx's now. It's worth a look. No such luck with Banzaitron, though.

    Wasn't this thread locked a little while ago? And didn't it have a different title?

    EDIT: Oh, never mind, just read the thread in Tech Support...

    I've been seeing Lockdown at TJMaxx as well, so you can probably find him there.

    PCC Sledge really fits in with the Classics aesthetic, if you're looking to pad out your 'cons. Also, DOTM HA Icepick is a good stand-in for Nightbird, to be perfectly honest; the robot mode is incredibly curve-heavy, and doesn't match up to the movie aesthetic much, if at all.

    If you want to feel like a kid again, grab Cyberverse Guzzle and Powerglide. They have an aesthetic that carries over into Classics well. And they are both just plain fun, you'll find yourself fiddling with them endlessly.


    For that matter, all the RTS Legends that are styled after G1 characters are pure gold! You can still find them at discount stores from as low as 2.99:thumbs2:

    I actually love Highbrow. The only thing I don't like are how awkward the hands look, but how Hasbro engineered the twin-boom fighter into a robot is pretty amazing. You don't have a lot to work with on a Twin Boom fighter.

    Anyways, you already have Bludgeon...that would be my no.1 choice for figures that fall into your original criteria. HFTD Seaspray is also DAMN good, as well as Cyberverse Powerglide and Guzzle.

    Cybertron Sideways/Noisemaze/Universe 2.0 Ratbat are all amazing if you don't have them either. I love love LOVE this toy.
