What would be your base figure if you were doing IDW designed characters?

Hi all.
I'm sucker for anything remotely resembling the designes seen in IDW comics, but some of those thing are so complex, with Drift as the exception, it seems Hasbro/Takara has shied away from attempting them. But if any of you were to take up the challenge what existing figures would you use as a basis (80% or more of) if you were to do a custom of:

Sentinel Prime as he appeared in Megatron Origins:Image

Hmm there seems to be a slight difference in his look. I could be wrong but I think I see a lot of Ultra-class Universe Countdown figure at least in the legs and few other parts. Does anyone else?



Nova Prime:

I know it does not look exactly the same but I think in some of later look after he came back from the Dead Universe as Nemesis Prime, his head looked a lot like the Japanese Big Convoy's/Universe Nemesis Prime vs. 1's.







and last but not least - MEGATRON 3.0:

that was seen last year. wow I think I see, possibly some Gundam parts here and there.

For Sentinel I'd have to go with Onslaught.

Nova Prime is a toughy for me, just nothing in my repertoire that I can think of that would work.

For Megs, it just takes away from the Generations Cybertronian Megatron, so nothing too difficult.

For Nova Prime, I can see a customized Energon Rodimus, or Checkpoint (Since he's already white) But alot of work would have to go into it.
