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.


What are your thoughts fellasImage

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.
