    Well if you keep Scourge as separate character from Nemesis Prime, it would work for him.

    I’ve thought about that, but I think I’d prefer either the RID original or the Takara Legends as Scourge. Still, that isn’t a bad idea.

    Yeah, so far these are my planned Scourge and Nemesis Prime. But I'm a Legion/Legends/Scout class collector.

    Could be a G1 KSI Galvatron/Megatron in Optimus Prime body. Not sure if their is a head that could be swapped that would fit though. But I really think this could work if the toy is more grey then black. Anyways here's a bio: With Megatron finally destroyed, the KSI corporation took Megatron's remains and tried to build their own transformer, in the form of a great hero. Little did they know the chassis of the former villain still contained the spark of Megatron.

    That thing is sick looking. I would happily take that as a playset/figure of somekind larger than our modern leaders.

    Yes! I love to see suggestions for Gobots. Was having a similar thought for what to do with that Spin-Out. Wouldn’t have thought to use Red Wing as Fitor but it seems obvious now.

    It’s too bad we’ll probably never see a red Earthrise Ramjet from Hasbro so we could get a proper coneheaded Fitor.

    If you don't mind doing a little bit of customization, like painting the chest and waist of the bot blue, CW Ironhide makes a near perfect Smallfoot.

    Yup, I already have that one as my Smallfoot. Haven’t gotten around to painting her though.

    Also plan to use some version of Hound as Jeeper Creeper and Siege Sideswipe as Major Mo. Just wish I could get proper heads for all of them.

    Way back when my mom did crafts she had these craft beads. After I saw the Beast Wars I kept some as Sparks.

    Sideburn as Sizzle crossed my mind before. It deserves an official retcon.

    For years, I saw G2 as a way of incorporating other series into G1 via it's colony worlds. I also had a bit of head canon that Sixshot was a member of the G2 Cybertronians. That his six changer status was seen as the ultimate evolution by most of the Cybertronian Empire.

    Also his colour scheme was quite similar to most of the Cybertronians. This tied in with my colony worlds idea as RID Gigatron could be seen as another one of these pinnacles of Cybertronian evolution given his six changer status.

    I was always intrigued by the name Liege Maximo and the suggestion it could be a place or a thing. Given his base mode, the Liege/Lord connection and just my distaste for the Liege Maximo design, I wanted to retroactively make Overlord the Liege Maximo.

    But I digress. These ideas have played around in my head for years but today I saw another possibility. Looking at their similar palates, I thought how about Titans Return Quickswitch as Jhiaxus. It would match better by swapping his arms with Sixshot but I think there are enough similarities to consider it. Certainly closer than G1 Galvatron's toy and animation model.

    Strangely, I recently found my self with two TR Quickswitches so I might try a bit of customising in the future.

    Anyway, I'm just throwing this out there...
