    Ehhh I get more of a SG Roadfire or Sky Garry vibe from him. Not so much Magnus. Not Psycho murdery enough.

    Anyone have any ideas for POTP & Netflix Elita-1? Don't want to get rid of them but with Legacy coming I'd like them to serve a different purpose

    Netflix you could do as a G1-ified Cybertron Thunderblast. You could even pretend her car mode is a "boat" given how solid a piece of plastic it is. Also possible one of dem generic autobot nurses from Energon: Autobot nurse - Transformers Wiki

    Honestly only thing I can think for POTP is a G1 Strika, she certainly has the physique for it.

    The Netflix Elita I repurposed as Vibes.

    I’m looking out for ideas for POTP Elita.

    This could work.

    POTP Elita could be a generic Seeker or a military airplanes. I think in G1 the Decepticons would have a few scuffles with militaries. The colors also remind me a bit of SG Starscream and Fireflight.

    I can’t think anything for WFC Elita that hasn’t been said before. Maybe Roadrage or a G1 Shatter?

    I like using this guy as a version of Sideways

    Mostly because I hate Shattered Glass, I also use the G1 Shattered Glass tapes as just additional characters rather than SG equivalents, I like putting Ramhorn with the Cobalt Sentries.
