    First and foremost, sorry if this topic's been brought up before.

    DecepticonSpike's thread about how you display your CHUG collection gave me the idea for this spin-off thread. It seems most people include non-CHUG figures in their CHUG collection. It's usually to bolster the Decepticon side of things, but not always.

    Anyway I thought it would be neat to start a thread dedicated to those non-CHUG toys we put in our CHUG collections, and who the represent in those collections. For the sake of the discussion we'll include RtS figures as CHUG guys, so no need to count them.

    Here's what I've got...

    RiD Optimus Prime as Sentinel Prime.
    PCC Grimstone as Slag.
    RotF Brawn.
    HftD Breacher as Roller.
    Cybertron Crumplezone w/Reprolabels as Bulkhead.
    Prime FE NYCC Arcee.
    FansProject City Commander armour on Classics Ultra Magnus.

    RotF Lockdown.
    Energon Scorponok.
    Music Label Soundwave.
    RotF Deluxe Bludgeon as Wreckage.
    DotM Darksteel as Quickstrike.
    Energon Sharkticon as Finback.
    RotF Voyager Bludgeon.
    DotM HA Dragstrip.
    Energon Snowcat as Icepick.
    PCC Sledge.
    HftD Payload as Long Haul.

    Anyone else?

    Cybertron Dark Scorponok as Black Zarak
    Universe King Atlas as Dai Atlas
    Robot Masters Star Saber/Victory Leo as... Star Saber/Victory Leo
    eHobby RM Star Saber/Victory Leo as Classics Hearlds of Unicron
    Armada/Energon Unicrons as...well Unicron
    Cybertron Clocker as Dion (I don't like the TFCC version, doesn't feel Classics-ey)
    Energon Combiners as their counterparts
    Cybertron Metroplex
    Universe Jihaxus
    Cybertron Nemesis Breaker as Nemesis Leo Prime
    Movie 1 Fracture as Classics Crasher (but I think that's a given)
    PCC Leadfoot (also a given I think)

    Cybertron Sideways (Just looks right as a Classics Herald of Unicron)
    Armada Tidal Wave also just "looks good" with my Classics
    Black KO Transmetals Megatron as Deathasauris (spelling?)

    That's all I can think of at the moment
    KO G1 Small Sixshot as Sixshot

    I plan on getting Cybertron Armorhide and using him as a Classics Pipes. Also ROTF combiners and and ROTF Bludgeon. Otherwise, not much else. I generally don't like using stuff from other lines.

    I do a lot of repurposing in my collection but the one from your list that caught my attention was Breacher. I always thought he made a great roller, and I have him prop up Optimus' trailer when he's in robot mode.

    Yeah, it works especially well since there's a botcon version of that mold as Huffer.

    This is technically NOT repurposing, but RtS Fallback = Outback

    Bludgeon, Sea Spray as themselves, because come on.

    Energon Shockblast...another no-brainer.

    RotF Lockdown = IDW Lockdown, an official repurposing. And that gets Axor in there as Axer.

    Someday DotM Vortex is going to play Whirl.

    Takara DotM Air Raid = Air Raid

    DotM Guzzle = Guzzle

    I'm getting "Movie" Fracture and Crankcase that are obviously going right into Classics, along with Superlink Scorponok.

    That's all I can think of...well if I ever get ahold of "Movie" Breakaway, that's an obvious one too.

    United Bumblebee would fit very easily into the Botcon exclusive Generation 2 Classics.

    That's what I've got done. I'm also planning to repaint a RtS Bee into G2 Hubcap with the help of the Renderform head.

    United Tank Megatron is naturally a G2 Megatron.

    Also, you can Reprolabel movie Hubcap into G2 Jolt, as well as RtS Jazz into his G2 self.

    Also, after rewatching Vangelus' review, I want to get a Botcon SG Sideswipe to call Drench and further bolster my G2 classics.

    Some of these have already been done, but let's see:
    RTS Lugnut - Lugnut
    RotF/HftD Axor - Axer
    RotF/HftD Lockdown - Lockdown
    RotF/HftD Bludgeon - Bludgeon (with Headrobots kit)
    Energon Scorponok - Scorponok
    Energon Divebomb - Divebomb (intending on repaining this one)
    Botcon Razorclaw - Razorclaw
    FP Insecticons - Insecticons
    Cybertron Soundwave - Soundwave and Laserbeak (please I repainted a blockrock as Buzzsaw)

    FP City Commander - Ultra Magnus
    PCC Huffer - Huffer
    Energon Arcee - Arcee
    RotF/HftD Hoist - Hoist
    FE Bulkhead - Bulkhead (the FE fits really well with my classics IMHO)
    PCC Leadfoot - Leadfoot
    PCC Steelshot - Big Shot
    PCC Salvage - Mudslinger
    Energon Aerialbots - Aerialbots (with FP add-on)
    Energon Omega Supreme - Omega Supreme

    Basically any Classics molds that were released in the Movie lines. Past that, I don't repurpose at all in my Classiverse collection. Hell, Universe Blades, Springer, and Ratbat are in a catch all collection with RID, Robot Masters, and anything else that isn't G1, Classics, Classiverse Legends, WFC/FOC, or Robot Heroes.

    I use PCC Huffer as Classics Huffer, and I use his other head to use him as TFP Huffer.
    TFP Ratchet is my Classics Ratchet, mainly because I hate the Ironhide/Ratchet mold.

    the Decepticons added the following to their ranks

    Armada Tidal Wave
    Energon Shockwave
    Energon Snowcat
    Energon Sharkticon
    Energon Demolisher
    Cybertron Dirt Boss

    so both forces have a few peeps from the UT in there.
