    I found this bouncy light up ball at Target for $1. It makes a perfect Vector Sigma.

    No, no, no, no.

    You see this is our universes Omega Doom, to see the resemblence you must look at the opposite universe one, i must say he looks exactly like the main machine from that movie.

    Yeah, I considered doing that myself. I agree that he looks more evil, more like Cataclysm... But I'd really like to keep the five Armada-beasts together as a group. And unfortunately I dislike the "Unicron's horsemen" idea. Naturally I named my Armada Terrorsaur Ravenus.

    Meanwhile, I use a pair of Hasbro Beast Hunters Starscream figures as generic Predacon soldiers working for Shokaract -- the Hasbro toy's colors are so wack that it's basically unrecognizable to me as the character from the show. I call these two generic soldiers "Skyblades" even though that's technically the name of the Maximal flyers who searching for The Hunter before he became Shokaract. Besides, hey, if Shokaract conquered all of Cybertron, he could have integrated previously-existing Maximal troops (such as Skyblades) into his army... As long as they swore loyalty to avoid the smelting pits, of course.

    The more I see him the more I want to buy SS Brawn and some paint to make a non-junk-of-a-toy Bulletbike

    Generations Selects Artfire as SG Hauler, this especially works since he was the same color scheme as the other Sg constructicons.

    I just grabbed an Infernocus and plan on using him as Violengiguar. The individual bots will be the dead sparks that make him up.

    I was 100% ready to boo you for this suggestion until you brought up the color scheme. Makes so much sense.

    I thought about Tripredacus but I could never find one in my price range. I was able to get Infernocus for $17.50.

    I plan to use Energon Swoop as Cyberverse Swoop so she goes with Energon Grimlock.

    Animated has a more slim body that would be good for Cyberverse Swoop.

    Or Have either the red or blue POTP Swoop as Cyberverse Swoop.

    Any ideas who to repurpose Bumblejeep as? I was thinking if a could find a good head that fits, it could be SG Hound.
