    Before everyone chimes in saying he is suppose to use the Energon Inferno mold here me out.

    I dislike the way the part mold looks. I love the blocky look but hate the head area. Granted it would be kinda cool to combine him with wheeljack (slicer) for a weird mad scientist wack job. However the head area is an issue, plus I would like to stay with classics type toys if possible. Now I believe the drawing in the comic was done before the classics toy. I also cannot stand painting white over red. So suggestions?? Should i stick with the blocky inferno/roadblock body?? (which i go that route it may be roadblock. or should i do like they did with Soundwave and 'update' his look to fit in with earth modes and give him the same body as Ironhide. So you thoughts??

    i would actually consider using the Rotf or DOTM deluxe mold

    since in SG the autobots are the bad guys i kinda like the doc having the sort of claw hands concept. plus you could already find one in white(rotf) or the soon to be released dotm repaint.

    slap on a different head and it works for me

    I thought he was supposed to be the Universe 2.0 one with teal instead of red...

    It was always my understanding that it was based on the Roadblock figure more than Inferno... but that is neither here nor there since you already specified you didn't want to use that mold.

    What about RTS Perceptor?

    It was Rodimus he was working on and yes in the pic he was made with inferno/roadblocks body but that was before the classics toy was released.
