    Since he was described as possessing other bodies due to not having one of his own, I thought a Titanmaster would be perfect for him. I made one from a Firedrive with Diac’s arms and the Hardhead faceplate. He has currently taken over Nitro Zeus’ transtector.

    See that’s clever, though I’d go with a translucent Prime Master, take off the glyph and put the Apeface or Shuffler faceplate. The translucent Prime Master would give that wraith-like glow to sell the whole “bodiless terror” thing

    MP Shattered Glass Optimus Prime as Galva Convoy from BW: Uprising
    167E9A79-4712-428D-A308-CDE6DE5B01FD.jpeg 03E3352D-1ACF-4A9B-B1E1-7BAF28194D1D.jpeg 17C365FC-083E-46DF-82EE-AEF4ED8FAAEB.jpeg
    MP Lio Convoy is on the horizon and I think he needs his dark doppelgänger (who never assumed a beast mode in Uprising) plus MP-10’s trailer can haul a few Thrilling 30 Tankors if you’ve got them. All he needs is the Vehicon logo over the SG logo.

    I use him as the Junkion DETRITUS.
    It's better than a repaint of HOUND
    and really looks like
    JUNK!

    The only Grimlock repaint I can think of is CHUG Overkill.

    Maybe Cruellock or Tyrannitron...

    If you don't mind a little fan-canoning, I use the SS version as my Onyx Prime representation.

    Onyx Prime. He’s described as massive and monster-like. Plus the Primes shapeshift/have different forms depending on the universe.

    Let me guess....

    A Minicon (Thrilling 30?) as Micronus
    Alpha Q as Quintus
    POTP Inferno as they core of Nexus?

    You got half of those right. Micronus was Vector Prime's Minicon and Megatronus was SS 13 Megatron.

    As for others: Liege Maximo was TLK Megatron, Prima was TLK Optimus, Vector obviously was Vector, TR Arcee was Solus, Amalgamous was RID 2001 Galvatron, that drunk prime who's name escapes me and is supposed to be Maccadam was AoE Hound, TR Alpha Trion as himself and 13 was POTP Optimus

    Nice, I too went with TLK Megatron as Liege but I gave him a green drybrushing to give him his marvel comics green colour and Megatronus as SS ROTF Megatron but after some much needed silver paint and an upgrade kit.

    I only said Sky Shadow because of that beautiful concept of him redone as Prima and Megatronus.

    Still salty POTP was short, low quality and lacked the Primes we wanted.

    Thank you all for knocking off SS Grim. He shalt be Onyx if I can remember. But who shall be TLK Voyager Grim.

    I second this, and this figure sorta justifies it:

    Energon Cruellock as AoE Grimlock in one of those weird Walmart exclusive 2 packs.

    An IDW Maximal. They were literally repurposed Beast-formers.

    you can always use the Bayverse Dinobots as the ancient Knights of Cybertron. The ones that the Lost Light crew were looking for, except alive.

    I my self am using Titanium Fallen as himself until I can acquire Maketoys Paladin or something better comes along.
    Quintus I got TLK Quintessa. Until something better shows up.
    Nexus I got CW Optimus and 4 random/extra limbs.
    Micronus I am using RID Undertone. He looks very similar to the RID Micronus in the show. Until something better shows up.

    Have you ever thought about the Rusty Evasion Mode Optimus as Detritus?

    Undertone is good for a white version... but if you want a more blue Micronus, I recommend RiD Legion Blur.
