    got this idea off the botcon exclusives (which i'll never get :( )

    grimlock repaint, head remold - a predacon, say, razorclaw
    mirage repaint, head remold - drag strip
    rodimus repaint, head, spoiler remold - wheeljack
    astrotrain - broadside (hey, the bots need a transportbot too)
    bumblebee - swindle

    post yours!

    I don't care for the character but Starscream -> Sunstorm
    Rodimus -> Sunstreaker & Sideswipe
    Prime -> Nemesis Prime / Menasor (using the new LoC name) / Motor Master
    Mirage (new head) -> Dragstrip

    These are what I expect to see for the con.

    What I would like to see in stores post movie, well, that's another story.

    Starscream -> Thundercracker
    Ramjet (remolded slightly) -> Dirge
    Ramjet (remolded slightly -> Thrust

    If repaints must be done, a NEMESIS PRIME is a must. I love the Classics OPTIMUS so much and he'd look so good in black.

    THUNDERCRACKER, of course. It's so obvious I don't know why I mentioned it.

    In my opinion, they're the only two that would work as direct repaints. With new heads there's potential for a lot more, but just a lick of paint limits things considerably.

    I don't mind repaints, and remolds are even better. :)  I'd say:

    -Prime into Motormaster or Nemesis Prime
    -Bumblebee into Goldbug, Wheeljack, Runamuck, and Runabout
    -Rodimus (only with MASSIVE remolding) into Sidewsipe, Sunstreaker, and Tracks
    -Ramjet repainted to Dige, remolded to Thrust
    -Starscream to Thundercracker, Sunstorm, Ghost Starscream, and one or two generic Seekers
    -Jetfire remolded into Wing Saber
    -Megatron repainted into Black Megatron
    -Mirage into "traitorous Decepticon Mirage", Dragstrip, or in a pinch, Prowl
    -2-Pack Megatron into Bludgeon

    No suprises there, really. Man, we REALLY need an old-fashioned "hood-chest" Autobot car... that could be turned into Prowl, Jazz, Smokescreen, Bluestreak, and probably several others so easily.

    Prime into Motormaster

    BB into Beachcomber (larger tires and wheel wells, different head, blue/gray colors, big dune buggy exhaust pipe)

    Hot Rod into Brakedown

    Ramjet into Thrust and Dirge

    ---Repaint---

    SS to Tcracker

    Hot Rod in to repaints slight remold of Red Alert and sideswipe and Sunstreaker.

    Id love to see WheelJaxx's WheelJack Kitbash as a remold of Bumblebee that owned. IM plannig a kitbash of BB too as a classic G1 car..

    I quite like the idea of remolding Hot Rod to get an Arcee. Lose the engine off the front, redo the section which makes up the back and spoiler, and put a new head on her. The shoulders wouldn't be the same, but otherwise you'd get a decent vehicle mode that looks a lot like Arcee, and a robot mode that basically resembles her robot mode, if a little more buff (no worse than Blackarachnia's Tarantulas repaint though).
    I'd also take a Dirge as a straight out repaint of Ramjet, and Thrust as a combo of Ramjet and Starscream's molds. Ramjet's core body, Starscream's wings. VTOL fans would be nice, but since Hasbro is usually limited on how far they can go with these things the basic shape would be enough for me.
    And Thundercracker. Always Thundercracker.

    Maybe it's the hippie in me, but I'd love to see Beachcomber in Classics. That sounds like a good way for him to be done, even if he is a repaint.



    I'd hate to get picky, but it wouldn't be (G1) Thrust to me if he didn't have the VTOL fans. They really made him look different from the other Decepticon jets.

    Yeah, I agree with that. Maybe they could pull it off by simply applying extra plastic pieces above and below each wing to serve as the VTOL parts?

    My suggestions for Botcon exclusives:
    Nemesis Prime - Classics Optimus Repaint
    The Fallen - Classics Optimus Repaint/Remold
    Sunstorm - Classics Starscream repaint

    My wish list for additional Classics repaints/remolds:
    Thundercracker - Starscream repaint
    Dirge - Ramjet repaint (remold?)
    Thrust - Ramjet repaint/remold
    Red Alert/Sideswipe/Sunstreaker - Hot Rod repaints/remolds
    Dragstrip - Mirage repaint/remold
    Galvatron - Megatron repaint/remolded head and scope (though I would prefer a new mold. But since we got Ultra Magnus as White Prime again, c'est la vie).


    Or they could put extra paint apps to color in VTOL vents. I would be fine with either one, as long as we get all six seekers out in mass retail for Classics.

    Or maybe we'll have to rely on Tits to fulfill that wish list.

    Honestly, I dont have a wishlist because I dont WANT to see most of the Classics repainted. The thing that makes them so cool is that they really are their own characters. But, I'm bored so I'll play along anyway

    Prime - already been done as Magnus. "Nemesis Prime" isnt a G1 character so I wouldnt want to see him done. Motormaster might be acceptable, especially with a new head, but I dont see it happening.

    Megatron - should not be made into Galvatron. G1 Galvatron does not look like Classics Megatron. It would be even lazier than Classics Magnus. Shockwave? Maybe, but I dunno. Can Hasbro make him in all purple, or is that against the gun laws? He'd obviously need a new head and a laser hand. I cant imagine them remolding the chest, so that would be disappointing. Frankly, I got Energon Galvatron and Shockblast, they're good enough.

    Starscream/Ramjet - can obviously be made into any number of Seekers and is the one mold that can get away with it. No problems there

    Astrotrain - yes, they can make him in cartoon colors, but I wouldnt buy it. I buy repaints if they're different characters, but I dont particularly need 2 different colored Astrotrains. Maybe they could make him into Blast Off. I dont know, I dont see the need to repaint him

    Hot Rod - he COULD make a good Sideswipe. They are shaped very similar. But I cant see Hasbro making the mold in red twice. He would not be convincing as any other character besides Sideswipe, I dont care what you say.

    Bumblebee - yes, he could be made into all the Throttlebots, Battlechargers, Hubcap, Bumper, whatever. But I definitely dont want to see so much oversaturation. He's already been Cliffjumper, let him rest.

    Mirage - Drag Strip, no one else.

    Grimlock - you could turn him into any other T-Rex TF, whether it be Trypticon or BW Megs. But it would be stupid no matter how you rationalize it. He's Grimlock, nothing else.

    Jetfire - I guess if you thought long and hard you could come up with other jets he could be, but since he was meticulously designed to look like G1 Skyfire, I find it kind of pointless to turn him into someone else.

    2-pack Megatron - Brawl, Bludgeon, Quake. I don't mind repainting him into another character, since I already have 1 Classics Megatron and he would be useful as another Decepticon. But would Hasbro even bother?

    Ebay:
    Starscream= Thundercracker
    Ramjet= Dirge, and Thrust
    Rodimus= Sideswipe and Red Alert (but not Sunstreaker...I think some of you guys are on crack wanting to make him into Sunstreaker.)

    And that's about it.

    Optimus Prime->Motormaster(with retooled head)
    Mirage->Dragstrip
    Rodimus->Wildrider
    Bumblebee->Dead End(retooled head)
    Rodimus->Breakdown(retooled head & body mods)
    If they also figured out a way to combine all of them into Menasor I would buy the set in a heart beat

    Thundercracker should be a given since we have Starscream and Skywarp.
    Maybe a brown 2 pack Megatron as Bludgeon.
    Thrust and Dirge - with remolded wings.

    I'd rather have most of these repaints as regular releases rather than botcon exclusives. I figure we will get at least 2 seeker repaints though. the rest I could care less about. most of these figures were made with a specific character in mind. I'd rather them use energon/ Cybertron molds to make figures the were more classic like

    Okay so we've probably exhausted the list but I do have a couple of "out there" ideas that probably won't happen but I'd like to see them

    G1 Megs - Sixshot colours
    G2 Megs - Hardhead?
    Ramjet - Powerglide colours maybe a mod or two
    Bumblebee *could* be modded to resemble Trailbreaker (but I do like the Beachcomber idea)
    Hot Rod modded to be Blurr
    Jetfire - mod to Cyclonus?

    The rest - aside from their "usual" repaints don't hold much possibility
