    Simple enough little mods, I removed the heads of RID Blastwave and Stormshot, widened the neck holes a teeny-tiny bit and plopped Titanmasters in there.

    The Colours of TM Nightbeat and Blastwave match surprisingly well. The yelling face makes him look a bit 'grrr I'm an angry sword dude' to which is nice. Double bonus is that the hole where Blastwave's head normally goes makes for a surprisingly nice seat for a titanmaster. So Blastwave and his Titanmaster Yell-or (geddit? Cause hes yelling, and his face is also yellow? You get it. You do)

    (apologies for my crappy photos)

    Second figure I modded was RID Stormshot with GoShooter (from Takara Legends Wheelie), whom I think suits the mold quite well. The blue shades on the titanmaster scream 'top gun' to me, and the colours all match quite nicely. Also it means you don't have the stock head hanging off the bottom in alt mode (it can't be turned around without potentially damaging the chin).

    I'm thinking the seat/gun thingy from TR Senteniel Prime or Broadside might be handy to plug into the top of the get to give Shooter a seat in alt mode.

    (again apologies for the crap photos)

    I know the RID range has it's critics, but I really like a lot of the warrior figures, and these guys have been great for finding bodies for my loose Titanmasters.

    I found a cheap Thunderhoof and Bumblebee at the weekend, and I'm thinking they might be good matches for Teribull and Sawback. Although they'll require drilling, etc to make slots for the titanmasters.

    Let me know your thoughts, or if anyone has any other good ideas for matching titanmasters with other non-TR bots!

    as for other bodies, i just happened to learn that T30 scoop's body fits sawback pretty well. i'm hoping to do that mod today myself.

    Thanks! I think I like Blastwave the most too. When the Bludgeon version comes out, I might get one of those TR Bludgeon shapeways faceplates (Bludgeon Face (Titans Return) by TrentTroop on Shapeways) and do something similar.

    Scoop would actually be great for Sawback. He is the right kind of orange and yellow if I recall.

    Really nice indeed. Head looks big on the body, but then again Scoop is bloody pin-headed as it is. Good work!

    He does look quite good, but I think the unintentional benefit of having a cockpit for a titanmaster in his alt-mode is making me like Blastwave a bit more.

    Cheers! And he is quite a simple, but fun little figure, I'd recommend him.

    Great work, Stormshot is a great mold to work with. I don't own Blast wave but he is a really neat looking mold. Like Megatronus, I hope a ko company up sizes him and gives him a proper paint job. The Titan Master choices were great too
