    Any thoughts on what siege megatron would be good to customize to without a ton of work? i'm thinking about buying another for his weapons but would be left with a spare and i'm not sure if there are any obscure character that resembles him. I dont want to do a simple repaint into another version of megatron unless i can get away with him not having his signature cannon.

    ideas?

    Emirate Xaaron is the obvious one, since it's basically painting him gold/yellow and silver.

    You could try making Warpath and using the second gun as the chest cannon

    generations warpath is good enough for me. besides i really hate when they make warpath from megatron. i need the barrel in his chest and not on the arm. It just isnt warpath without a barrel sticking out of the chest.

    I meant that you could drill a 5mm hole in his chest and use the second gun as his chest cannon

    Just a thought, but turn him into Turmoil perhaps?

    Gutcruncher? No, Strika! WAIT!!!....

    ...Archforce?

    A bit obvious I know, but even a Reverse Convoy would be neat for that mold. Whatever you choose, it'll be gorgeous, knowing your work. Best of luck!

    Xaaron hasn’t had a toy before. Surprisingly enough. I actually want Hasbro to release an Emirate Xaaron remold, based on the U.K. colours and not the all yellow American colours. Instead of having an arm cannon and sword, Xaaron’s tank cannon would transform into pieces of armor.

    Turmoil is a great idea. And he's pretty obscure, as far as toys go.

    well as i mentioned in my post for my custom Xaaron, it was going to be him. But right now I havent yet decided and havent done anything yet. I've been toying around with a reverse of guiltaur that i was going to call innosin (a play on guilty or innocent since the quintessons built guiltaur) and have a few digibashes i've done for those ideas but i havent really settled on anything. here is one of those digibashes. I've got a few different versions with a mouth guard like prime, different colored shoulder pads and some other things. One of my hold ups is trying to figure out what to do with the shoulder pads because transforming him is pretty goofy or impossible with them.

    Maybe they could flip up to make extra guns in the alt mode? Or maybe they could peg into the 5mm ports on the upper arms in the robot mode and detach to go on the forearms in alt mode?

    i've been toying with a few things. I was thinking about making them removable but i was trying to make it to they would flip out to be like the back side of the tank turret. The transformation limits what can be done so its not partsforming. I'll eventually settle on something.
