    I requested a Shapeways face to make a Titanmaster of Stranglehold's inner robot. I customised the Armada Rhinox as inner robot Stranglehold. Once I removed the Rhinox head, I found a Titanmaster fits snugly into the hole that's left.

    Nice idea. I'm curious to see how it looks with POTP Cindersaur.

    I saw the pick you posted in the Radicons thread. Awesome work. But I am just fine leaving Rhinox the way he is. Thanks all the same

    Okay, how did everyone missed this?! I have been gripping about not having a Quickmix in scout or deluxe size and the only one that comes close to is PCC Huffer. The Voyager is still a good figure, but still to large for me.
    Action Toys Machine Robo Mixer Robo (Block Head) as Quickmix.

    For Stranglehold I made him into something of a double pretender.
    You’ll need a POTP Optimal Optimus and a TR Ramhorn.

    Remove the backpack Optimus (pop those pins) and throw that shit away, remove the titan master you only need the rhino, remove the matrix core and finally, find a Prime Master that you want to be the “inner robot” I recommend the Quintus core, the idea of him making a planet full of wrestle-wrestlers is hilarious.

    The goal here is to homage his stupid shell but to merge it with the inner robot (those are my pretenders at least)
    The crimson and orange from his shell/inner robot is on both Optimal Optimus and the Quintus core. A Double Pretender is one mind split across three bodies..... he’s literally his own wrestling team.

    Good for those of you who aren’t furries and would rather have the Macho Man as a leader class.

    I recommend a headswap, you picking up one of the unpainted ones?
    For heads I recommend Ptero.

    I’ve got one already (picked it up in one of the funpub clearances), but wouldn’t know how to go about the headswap since blastcharges head is a mushroom peg, but I do have a sore ptero as well

    edit: did the swap

    If Blastcharge is the yellow Warpath repaint, like the one I have, then Omega Spreem is the logical answer.


    Or Gobots Blaster, if you swing that way.

    For anyone with Thrilling 30 Springer who wants to pick up the new one, this is for you.

    Springer as Obsidian (toy colours)

    To hammer home my previous post, behold a kitbashed Obsidian made from a Thrilling 30 Springer.

    Not a basic repurposing but I think I did a decent job, gonna add some paint to get rid of the brown.

    Well the good thing about Blastcharge is he (and by extension any “drones”) can go on any shelf, just slap a label on him and you’re good to go.
