    Looking at the picture, that looks a lot more like Thrilling 30 Blitzwing to me. Which means you could use Cloud Starscream as Bumblebee Blitzwing...!

    You could also use G1-colored movie Starscream... although the F-22 didn't exist back then.

    That honestly works, especially since Seekers are a fucking horde in the Movieverse.

    Studio Series Jazz as G1 Jazz. I realise the colours don't match but he's still unmistakably Jazz.

    Plus he scales nicely in car mode with G1 Prowl.

    This is for anyone who is buying the repaint of Studio Series Megatron and has the original version. Use him as Movieverse Archforce, to project the image of Megatron still being healthy and strong to his troops.

    Yet another movie one.
    Siege Lionizer as AOE Steeljaw, maybe you get a chain and have a Shadow Raider walking one, maybe Lockdown orders two to hunt down Marky Mark or maybe Lockdown takes em to the dog park.

    I believe toyhax now has a lable kit to turn roadtrap into crankcase.

    So, I was at the Movieverse Appreciation thread and @Thundermania directed me over here to point out that Energon Igniters Car Dropkick looks like the Oreobot. 20190108_010450.jpg Screenshot_20190109-155406_Chrome.jpg

    Thanks for the credit. I'm gonna check my Wal-Mart for one. That shit's hilarious, I want my Vehicon army to be "movie accurate" so Galvatron needs his right-hand man.

    Botcon 2015 Megatron as AOE Junkheap, it helps that he is already a Movieverse figure, has rust and looks like a garbage truck in his alt mode and their heads are similar. Put him with some KSI Sentries, a Nitro or two, Stinger and Galvatron and he fits in.

    The Infernocons from the TRU pack as a group of hatchings I excluded Skulk from this. I got two, one to display in Gestalt mode exclusively and one to display Skulk.
