    What toys do you repurpose as other characters? Here's mine

    Movie Divebomb = Sunstorm

    Red Sideburn = Sideswipe

    We do this thread a lot but it's fun to see what other folks do. I made Energon Downshift my Classics Wheeljack. My ROTF Gears is now classics Gears. TFTM G1 deco Jazz is classics Jazz. My Titanium Scourge, Hotspot, Optimus Primal , and War Within Thrust all sit with my classics as well. I got the 07 botcon set so War WIthin Thrust and Dirge as well as the Cybertron voyager Starscresm repaint serve as generic seekers along with my three Acid Storms and my first Classics Starscream who was replaced by the recent universe Animated colored one.

    Also Energon Inferno stands in as Hosehead by my TFCC Nightbeat.

    I haven't exactly repurposed anything into my Classicsverse shelf except for the Re-issue Insecticons... who are there to represent the G1 Insecticons...

    Yeah.

    Haven't done any repurposing, but I'm thinking of taking either 07 Movie Stockade or ROTF Gears and repurpose the figure as a Movie-verse version of my fan character Wildfrost to use for an upcoming photo-comic of mine.

    TFTM Mudflap (Cyb. Mudflap repaint) - slightly modified into Classics Erector.

    ROTF Superion & Aerialbots - Classics 2.0 Superion & Areialbots (they're the exact same releases as the Universe releases)

    ROTF Fearswoop - Classics G2 Hooligan (Yeah, I know it's a real stretch since the Dreadwing mold looks nothing like G2 Hooligan, but the deco and bio just scream Hooligan. Plus, I need a G2 Con to counterbalance the one G2 Autobot I have; Classics Inferno)

    The "Classics" Cybertron repaints are my Unicron Trilogy Blades, Blaster & Dirge.

    Cybertron Dark Scorponok is my Unicron Trilogy Black Zarak. I'm still debating getting the Movie Stalker Scorponok to turn into Movie Black Zarak (I am among many with a weakness for black repaints).

    Henkei Hot Shot is my Unicron Trilogy Armada Hot Shot.

    Cybertron Galvatron is my Unicron Trilogy Megatron and Cybertron Megatron is my Unicron Trilogy Galvatron (they just work better for me that way).

    Once the white Demolishor comes out, he'll be Movie Demolishor and the Hasbro version will be Movie Scavenger (not sure what I'll do with the Hasbro Ravage once the red version comes out yet...any repurposing suggestions?).

    Classics Darkwind is Classics Darkwing (it feels like nit-picking, I know).

    Not exactly earth-shattering changes, but that's what I've done.
