    Super Side Burn! You could also use ROTF Swerve.

    Mastermind Creations Anarchus (Kaon) as Ambulon. 90% sure you can just take of the Tesla Coils if you have a screwdriver. The colors and head are pretty similar. Also fits since he used to be a Decepticon.

    Just got two redecos I wanted for a long time:
    [​IMG]
    2007 Allspark Crosshairs - SG Outback

    [​IMG]
    2007 Allspark Power Warpath

    The latter I'm not too sure about, did originally want him to be G1 Fastback but I don't feel like that works for me anymore, I thought maybe SG Gears? I know it is officially SG Crosshairs. Guess I'll browse for some other character ideas or listen to suggestions anyone has. Or just make it an oc.

    Do you mean sg crosshair, because 2007 warpath was used for sg crosshair?

    I could see Earthspark Prowl being used as Checkpoint, or just an auto trooper since he's pretty distinct. 1000006765.png 1000006764.png

    I could see motormaster making a good clench. Dragstrip could be used as g2 leadfoot. No idea for deadend though

    Those are both good shouts. Thanks.

    While googling red sports car decepticons, a picture of Stinger popped up. Dead end can be a classics styled Stinger and hang out with the battlechargers around Galvatron (because he was with galvatron in aoe). Woo!

    How about a Volvo VNR collaborative Optimus Prime as "Prime Universe Optimus Prime"?

    He works as a decent stand in for Prime and Earthspark Optimus

    Yep. And especially Warrior class Gold Armor Grimlock as "True Grimlock" because of that alternate head design.

    Throne of the Primes Optimus Prime as Nemesis Primal or Onyx Primal - since thrones are for Deceptions.

    So, any ideas for legacy energon Megatron? I originally bought him just because he was cheap, but it turns out he's a really good figure. I'd like to integrate him into my collection somehow.

    I use my Energon Megatron as Megaplex. Even though he is a core class you could do the same with the Legacy one.

    Anyone have ideas for Iron Factory SG Grimlock? Can’t really think of anybody (trying to justify whether to buy the repaint or not)
