    Still amazing how stable "Energon Abominus" was. For me, he ranks up there as one of the all-time greatest famous. (Toilet Shortround is #2 :lol  )

    Recently got into lightning collection, mostly cause of the upcoming tmnt crossover. Anyways was thinking of using my gamerverse velocity suit Spiderman as a updated 1977 toei Spiderman (basically as a power ranger)

    More info:
    Spider-Man (Japanese TV series) - Wikipedia

    Was curious if anyone had an opinion/ suggestions about repurposing a transformer figure into Leopardon. Original figure transformed from Cat-spaceship with deployable car into robot but open to suggestions. The closest figure so far has been Victory Lio IMO.

    First thought isn't actually TF, I was thinking Battle Buffalo with Epsilon suit as the head from the Diaclone reboot. No idea where you'd get them though since they came out ages ago. Mandarake doesn't have them and they usually have a nice selection of the reboot figures for decent prices.

    Second thought is again Diaclone reboot but either the Tri Dasher or Digger. They have that general blockiness with the window chest and you can probably fudge the flying tiger mode. Then maybe track down PRID cyberverse commander Wheeljack(the red and white deco) as the little launching car.

    With the rumors of the new Wal-Mart exclusive line from Catz, I'm thinking of picking up the whole thing. However, since I don't really collect Armada, does anyone have any ideas for a G1 bot for Armada Blurr to stand in as? Also Burn out if I get an extra one?

    I use energon Arcee as Andromeda. White with the pink head, so I figure it’s close enough.

    If you aren’t apposed to building model kits the Super Minipla Leopardon is relatively cheap on Japanese sites. The final figure stands about deluxe size.

    Otherwise maybe Generation Selects Zetar might work. He has similar colors and you might even be able to spruce him up with parts from other Weaponizers

    Probably would work better with Netflix Sparkless Bot.

    Honestly I think Sg Cyclonus would be the best but you said no Sg.

    We're talking about Iron Man right?

    Assuming yes, perhaps a cybertronian version of a G2 Terradive: Terradive (1993) - Decepticon Advance Fighter - www.tfu.info

    Or perhaps elevate poor little Processor from Mini-con hell: Processor (2004) - Mini-Con - www.tfu.info

    As for heads maybe Clobber or Apeface for Terradive and Necro for Processor. I dunno you could get a faceplate from shapeways, there are literal dozens of choices for more generic faces.
