The blue Robots in Disguise Prowl as Rescue Bots Chase...
FOC Air Raid as Cybertronian Alpha Bravo
Animated Autotrooper as Tailgate
Energon Checkpoint as Prowl
That's quite clever, works really well. I made my FOC Air Raid an original Decepticon character, but your idea is sharp!
I always felt if there was ever fiction where Prowl became a Prime, Checkpoint could serve as inspiration for his character model.
Okay so for some context Beta is a prime in my headcanon, I have her pre-matrix form sorta figured out but are there any voyager molds that could work well as a female prime, besides POTP Elita?
RTS Deep Dive as Waverider
Off the top of my head there's the obvious Pyra Magna with a new paint job. Oddball idea, TR Galvatron with a new head.
Trentulas has a Beta faceplate: Firestar, Nightbird & Beta Faceplates by TrentTroop on Shapeways
or if you want to do a sort of Orion into Prime type deal these could work.
Fembot HeadNurse Face (Titans Return) by TrentTroop on Shapeways
Cybertron Override Faceplate (Titans Return) by TrentTroop on Shapeways
ANyone have any ideas as to who DOTM Tailpipe could be repurposed into? Some parts of this guy's design remind me so much of something else and i just cant put my finger on it.
Maybe RID Axer?
As a bonus homage, Tailpipe's grey, blue, and gold bits kinda evoke the other Axer, the G1 Actionmaster. And Tailpipe's shoulder-mounted wheels echo Axer's motorcycle when it's in Attack Mode.
So I recently got the Shattered Glass Collection Megatron (love the damn thing and story) and I want to create more of the cast. They do not have to be the original Botcon or the new IDW accurate as my ideal Ultra Magnus, or Ultra Magnus getting a really big upgrade, is a Powermaster, who is "binary bonded" with "Minimus Ambus", who is actually a 'Project: Powermaster - Scout Form' droid with Ultra Magnus' spark and brain module. (Thought I'd make a few references to 2005 IDW). So, even with a little or a lot of customs (repaint, kitbashing, etc.) I'm looking for recommendations. Using stock figures would be a huge plus, but I don't mind getting a little messy. Thank you for your time!
I've used some of the weirder Selects/Netflix/etc. figures to double as SG versions. Galactic Man Shockwave as his SG self. Sparkless bot as one of the SG Datsuns (haven't decided which one). Netflix Deepcover as SG Sodeswipe, Spinout as SG Sunstreaker. Amazon Slamdance as SG Flywheels. Netflix Deeseus Drone as SG Ironhide. Decepticon Mirage as his SG self, etc...
And to add another minor one. I'm sorta interested in the S7 Ultimates. Particularly the AM. Since I already have Kingdom Tracks, I kinda want the Basher accesory, but don't want to pay $55 for only that. So I made due with what I already had.
If you don't care about SG accurate colors, the ones I'm using are
Siege mainline Impactor (purple autobot symbol and red eyes so he fits in)
Netflix Scrapface as SG Reflector (not purple con logos)
Galactic man Shockwave as SG Shockwave (no con logo)
Nice suggestions, I think I'll definitely take some onboard, I'll see if other users can come up with some as well. Love to see what people come up with. But, thank you both for some suggestions!
Not a problem. There's also rodimus unicronis that can work as sg rodimus
The twin versions of Deep Cover became Zigzag and Rubic Rub-out for me.
T-Wrecks as Devil Dinosaur. And Optimus Minor as Moon-Boy.
Powerlinx Blackout as Shattered Glass Heave.
Tobot Shuttle as Victory Galaxy Shuttle
Or as G1 Mainframe.
So I saw this on Amazon and realized this Cyber Battalion Megatron makes a lousy Megatron but would make an awesome IDW Hyperion for my MTMTE shelf. I debated painting him but there's so few images of him and the colors differ, I've decided he's perfect as is. Besides, he died in the first issue so worst case he's a greying out zombie!
