    TR Trypticon as Megatron’s Gigastorm armor

    The Megastorm armor was utilized by Classicsverse Megatron after merging Vok technology with Decepticon science. The little LG Megatron could plug into Trypticon to recreate the impression that it’s a Megatron and not a repurposed Trypticon.

    Points to the brave one who modifies Trypticon’s chest to actually carry a Megatron figure.

    Given the hollow chest it wouldn’t be to hard to make a seat

    Yeah, cut away that weird divider for the “stomach” gimmick and find a Megatron that can fit in there.

    So here’s one to kick off the Saturday. Decepticon High Reagent Scrash from the tail-end of the Japanese G1 continuity (Operation Combination) now he was speculated to be a Japanese release of Skyquake and indeed some Skyquakes are labelled as “Scrash”.
    D76C574B-9754-451B-9D61-BEB32F23026F.jpeg
    Even his toy is literally just Skyquake. So I was thinking we could do better than a derpy late 80s early 90s toy that falls apart if you breathe near it.

    That picture is your sole reference (only artwork/picture of him that isn’t just Skyquake)

    I do hope some of you can think of some interesting stand-ins for poor Scrash.

    Just bought Cyberverse Cheetor to repurpose as his G1/Beast Wars self.

    Would like to see how he looks next to the T30 BW figs and the little POTP Optimus Primal if you have them.

    I only have Rhinox and he's in storage.
    If it helps, here he is with the smaller POTP Rodimus Prime, who I'd imagine is close in size to Optimus Primal, Siege Thundercracker and Takara Legends Blurr...

    So this could open the way to some interesting repurposing for the creative.
    “Energon armor” from the Shattered Glass BW comics which saw G1 Megatron adorn armor that upgraded him into his G2 Hero colours and G1 Dirge upgrading into BWII Dirge.
    41E5757A-A6E6-4EA1-8549-97B8488513C1.jpeg

    For example
    ROTF Knockout as an armoured Prime Knockout
    328708AE-254E-4BC9-BC66-4CF0D2DC03CF.jpeg

    Basically this explanation can be used to justify more..... unique repurposing.

    Maybe Movie Spyshot as another option for Trepan.

    I never heard of Rotgut but given he's a green repaint of Blight who was basically Aligned Blot, that's a great idea.

    Further to your suggestion, Beast Wars II Starscream and BB as G2 Starscream and Megatron...

    I reread that Collector's Club magazine the other day and I realised the Hero Megatron toy or the Titans Return version can be used as 3 characters...

    Archforce, a clone of Megatron.

    G1/2 Megatron, official from the magazine you posted that page from.

    Beast Wars Megatron. Official from the Japanese Manga. Truth be told I'd prefer his pre Megatron name was Archforce rather than Gnashteeth.

    I call this guy Onslaught in my movie collection.

    I attach his arm cannon to his back to mimic Onslaughts double barrel cannon and gave him AOE OP shotgun for a good hefty gun.
