You're right, that's insanely clever. icon-ironhide.gif

But it is still a slim passing resemblance to Fort Max, mostly counting on the head, sword, and a few coincidentally similar colors (mainly in Cerebros and Highbrow) to sell it. We'd probably get even less (no sword, I'd assume) in a Hasbro take, and there's a decidedly different styling at work here. I just don't see it working.

...that said, if they made it I'd probably have to have it. icon-fire.gif

Oh yeah, you are right: the resemblance is only a passing one and it hinges on the items you pointed out. And like you, while its not what I want out of a new Fort Max, I'd buy it if it hit the shelves *lol*


Have the club do it for Botcon, cal him the forgotten Maximus combiner in a return to the UT universe. Hell they could use a re-purposed Tredshot in the comic as Sideswipe post Armada.

I wonder what First Edition Prime Bulkhead would look like decoed similar to the unreleased Mudbuster Bulkhead...

Deluxe Prime Optimus Prime as European Sureshot, to go with the United G2 Megatron/Archforce.


Make it the unreleased Combat Hero scheme and you have a deal.

Not that they'd ever allow a repaint of a Star Wars Transformer, but General Grevious repainted as Scrounge.

I was thinking who would make an appropriate repaint of the Thunderwing mold.

I would like to see a Shattered Glass Sky Shadow repaint in green, based upon the 2008 Mini-Con Sky Shadow.

SG Sky Shadow would be a Pretender (even though the toy isn't) and the Mini-Con is his inner robot form although it wouldn't come with the SG Sky Shadow toy.

Deluxe ROTF Starscream as either Ramjet or Sunstorm.

When you find yourself standing on the brink of surrender, know that many in the past faced trials such as your own, but overcame them with their great conviction.
No matter the greatness of your desperation, the failures of your efforts, or the injustice of your treatment, at least a few men have stared into the same challenges and emerged victorious from these tests.
Such men are not only a great source of inspiration, but also the very foundation upon which modern society rests.

Legends GoBots set! (ha this been posted before?)
  • Legends RTS Bumblebee as Bug Bite
  • Legends Cosmos as Path Finder
  • Legends Brawn as Road Ranger (I like the Kible that goes over Brawn's head. Kinda like the e-Hobby Road Ranger. Plus, Brawn's altmode feels appropriate for that name.)
  • Legends Warpath as Treds

There was also a custom Jhiaxus from Thunderwing. I imagine such a mold would work perfectly well for Hasbro should they decide to make an actual Jhiaxus.

Cyberverse Commander Powerglide as Bad Boy of course. Alternately you can use Cybertron Legends Jetfire.

Is it unreasonable to want RTS Jazz as Shockblast/Alt Shockwave or Zoomzoom? I think that mold would look nice in a deep colour like that.

I made one of these myself... doesn't look like I photographed it though. Originally I was going to keep the Thunderwing head but I found someone on TFW2005's Radicons who used PCC Huffer's combiner mode head (with the antennae cut off). I liked this look (more like the G2 comic) so I followed this example.

If it looked anything like the ones Cheets did, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

I don't know who to be mad at... Walky for making me want those, You for reminding me that the T.j.Maxx five minutes from here has at least one more Sky Shadow, or myself for knowing my toy reprinting skills are terribly below my own standards and still loving Pretender Starscream enough that I want to try.

Nobody said it had to be realistic so,

Cybertron Optimus Prime into a GaoGaiGar homage. With a bit of remolding and a lavish deco it could totally work.
