    Get him some teeny sunglasses and repurpose him as the unfortunate Maccadam's Old Oil House Bouncer Rocky

    Total blank on Ratchet. For Ironhide maybe make him a pre-micromaster version of Tote.

    Red Alert
    Perhaps a non Minicon version of Kingbolt: Kingbolt (2004) - Mini-Con - www.tfu.info

    Mirage
    Give him little pointy ears and call him Deluge: Deluge (1993) - Decepticon Scientific Advisor - www.tfu.info
    or
    Cover his eyes and mouth and either call him G2 Double CLutch or CR Counter Arrow
    Double Clutch (1995) - Autobot Defense Specialist - www.tfu.info
    Counter Arrow (2000) - Autobot Sniper Ninja - www.tfu.info


    Sizzle......umm only thing I can think of Combiner Wars Windcharger. He's not quite the funny car he was in G1 but vehicle mode still could work with some black and he does have the whole in his hood to give him the supercharger.

    I just started rewatching Rescue Bots. The first thing that came into my mind when I saw the Sigma was protoform Optimus. If there’s anything closer, I’d be happy to hear your ideas.

    Side note, does anybody have any ideas for the Robo-Landscaper?

    Probably not the best but maybe a slightly fan-moded Studio Series Rampage could work?

    It would probably require customization. Rampage's scoop doesn't transform at all

    Here's a pretty low effort custom idea. All it takes is a blue marker, as all other kibble is in the right place. Core class laserbeak can make a pretty good legends scale turbomaster Flash! PXL_20230819_043417575.jpg

    Also, here's a request for, not a figure, but a character. What's a mostly blue/grey character who turns into a land vehicle around the size of a semi truck? (But not necessarily a semi)

    The ones that come to mind first are:
    G1 Overload (micromaster)
    G1 Oiler (micromaster)
    Cybertron Armorhide
    Car Robots God Magnus

    Incidentally, these are all semi-trucks.

    Thanks for the suggestions! Isn't God Magnus just ultra Magnus, or is he a different character in Japan?

    You're welcome! As far as I know, God Magnus is considered a different character from Ultra Magnus in the Japanese continuity.

    Wonderful! Looks like God Magnus it is. I own buzzworthy Kup so I didn't need his SS version, and I wanted to turn him into a character to go with my deluxe scale collection. That's perfect! PXL_20230820_033103926.jpg

    Someone commenting on my photography thread reminded me of this. I don't use Lunartread as Lunartread, I just use him as countdown, despite the wrong paint job PXL_20230824_024837099.jpg

    Ebay:
    ROTB Wheeljack scans a water based craft.
    Or Seaspray decides to explore Land a bit more.
    Or Wheeljack is the inner robot and Seaspray is the Pretender Shell.
