    Got a brand new Road Assault Team. It goes well with the rest, I'd say.
    Many of the best minicon teams were mass releases.

    Today I received one of my favourite TFs ever. I always loved this figure, and in hindsight I regret selling it off with the rest (but it had to be done!)
    The pairing with the Cybertron Seeker Saber came back to me after finding old pictures in photobucket... I knew I had to recreate that!
    Without further ado...

    In the same way as Titans Return Gateaway is a remold of Combiner Wars Dead End, but fully. No 1:1 in parts, but same transformation scheme and concept.

    The only thing they have in common is some aspects of the transformation, they share no parts and Energon Starscream is significantly larger.

    I was on the right track in seeing the similarities though. Didnt know it was significantly larger. I dont own starscream. I do have a g2 smokescreen so i can gauge how big it is sorta. Thanks for the additional info.

    I don't think I ever saw that deco before. It is neat. I have the original and Galvatron, and that was enough. Still love the design, despite the legs.

    The thing that this thread reminds me with every picture is what a GREAT era AEC was for fun TOYS. No over muddled transformations

    Agreed. After a few years of fiddling with cramming robot bits into the car brothers and BW Neo toys, Armada Hotshot was a joy to play with. Yes there were weakness but they were just fun to play with. I think they have found a really good balance between complexity and playability with Siege and the weaponizers.
