    PotP Inferno with the Toyhax stickers for Pyro
    WFC Rotorstorm

    For 3P there is:

    Mech iDEAS Gauntlet (Ironfist)
    Mech iDEAS Apex and Geminus (TS & TT)
    MMC Carnifex (Overlord)


    I’m probably missing a few from that list btw.

    T30 Roadbuster
    T30 Sandstorm
    CYberverse Wrack n’ Ruin

    There are good MTMTE faces on Shapeways for a lot of the characters who got incarnated in Titans Return--an MTMTE Rodimus face for TR, fr'ex. Do you have any creative impulse?

    Mix and match, but MMC's quality is going to be better most of the time so take that option when applicable. Still, I have my Generations Brainstorm, Selects Rotorstorm, and T30 Springer proudly displayed alongside my MMC IDW figures. They're almost as good. I'd also suggest tracking down ROTF Lockdown to function as IDW Lockdown.

    MMC and Hasbro both have good offerings, but don’t forget FansProject Assaulter!

    He’s an excellent Broadside, and he’s a big bastard, too.

    Trashtalk and Rearend are probably the two most accurate IDW figures out there, but I wish they were about 15% taller. They scale well with Hasbro, but for MMC, they're a bit short.

    But they still and always will have a place on my shelf.

    Ttashtalk and Rearend are very accurate. But the should be shorter.
    They'll always have a place on my shelf, though.

    Especially Rearend...;) 

    I missed out on Rearend actually. Can't find him anymore.
    I bought 3 sets of Trashtalk though.

    What head is that?

    It’s the Dr. K/M31 addon head. They made 3 faces/heads and new null rays for the iGear Raptor boys.

    I have a hard time picking out idw seekers and a idw soundwave


    I feel like all 3 seekers should be different molds

    Why not both so you can mix and match. My favs (Megs, Op, Ironhide, etc.) are MMC, but my support case are Hasbro.

    The size disparity & missing characters on my MTMTE shelf led me to get into customizing. I hope one of these days to get a decent Nautica out of T30 Sandstorm...
