    I like these ideas a lot... especially since Henkei Strafe is kind of a useless, redundant character these days (and never really looked anything like Strafe to begin with). And I have no attachment to that WFC Air Raid as Air Raid, either. And like you said, the colors go pretty well together.

    I generally like these. Only problem I see is the Ransack GTS mold is already officially SG Groove, and green is an odd choice for SG Rattrap anyways. I might have to try to think of an alternative.

    In fact, Clocker makes a good SG Rattrap!

    I agree with you colors match better for Rattrap. Mostly picked clocker for cheetor, because of the teal colors and same Botcon mold.[​IMG]

    TR Quick switch as SG Sixshot.

    I'm not sure if there is a SG Sixshot but I'd imagine he'd be something like Vash the Stampede from Trigun, goofy but amazing in combat.

    Heard we might be getting a black Ironhide, could be repurposed as Decepticon Flatline. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Shattered Glass Scrapface from Photon T-34.

    Shares a mold with SG Reflector.

    Motto "Having friends will always get you through."

    One of the most beloved Decepticons. A friend to anyone in need. Reflector is jealous of his popularity.

    2007 Target exclusive Clocker as Unit 9, aka pre-Beast Wars Wolfang.

    The black Ironhide could work as a G1 version of Berserker with some modifications (and a police light). I imagine him as Barricade's partner-in-crime. :)

    Any ideas who I could repurpose Beast Hunters Commander Class Starscream as?

    Also, if it helps, I fan-moded an anti-aircraft Cannon for him, along with a gerawlk/wyvern. (Attached since I already posted in the fan modes thread).
