    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.

    For example
    ROTF Knockout as an armoured Prime Knockout

    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.

    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.
