"You gotta know when to hold em', and know when to buy em'"
JACKPOT coasts through life with a smile and a firm belief that everything will turn out okay. Because for him, it usually does. No matter how dire the situation, things seem to come out all right in the end. Of course, he realizes that sometimes luck needs a helping hand, and can typically find some way to tilt the odds in his favor... even when he's being chased by a pack of angry DECEPTICONS!

I would guess these all just fit under "universe", which is what most figures from tfcc fit under. That way, you can have figures from different series and styles mingle without being to anal about it.

There are 2 extra touches FunPub can throw on to win me over though:
1: Toss in a blue/charcoal Laserbeak/Sideman repaint named Sights; yes, I know Jackpot probably won't be able to interact with him in any way besides surfing on his back, like his Action Master could thanks to Sights's pegs lining up with the standard AM foot pegs...
2: In keeping with a gambling motif, his bio MUST attempt to tie him to the Convertors Spies, half of whom turned into casino machines, and a cash register.
Zardak and the Maladroids were already worked into one TF continuity, and sentient gadgets like pinball machines would work perfectly in Animated, either as Transformers or [strike]Sunyak[/strike] Sumdak Industries' creations.

I think their making a new head for this is a nice good faith gesture. Props there.

Though, fiction-wise, I'd say Slipstream is WFC/Prime, Ultra Mammoth is Beast Era, Jackpot is Animated, Scourge is most likely RiD (unless he's another RiD-homage Wings Universe character), and Circuit and Breakdown are some form of G1.
