    Sorry if this thread has been done before, but are there any "Classics" figures (or any other for that matter) that you just knew Has/Tak would repaint into a certain character but then they never did???

    I was looking at Universe Hound and was wondering why they never made him into Swindle or Rollbar like the Alternator did.

    Legends Bumblebee into Cliffjumper.

    Why not?

    I mean, Cliffy has been Bee's bitch forever. We got Magnus from Prime.

    EDIT: Okay, there was a Japan exclusive one.

    Probably since we had gotten a 'Classics' version of Swindle, no matter if he was an Energon throwaway.

    Yeah this, especially a blue prime to go with the DIA commander. Problem would be that it requires some sort of fiction that HasTak would need to pull out of their ass.

    This is what I was gonna say as well. I mean, I didn't expect Hasbro to do one, but I thought maybe Takara would do one through E-Hobby or as a magazine exclusive or something. I'm still hoping for maybe a two-pack with Stepper one of these days.

    Also, Sideswipe repainted as G1 Breakdown.

    I think I'm the only one who thinks this, but I've always wanted Classics Rodimus repainted as Chromedome, something like this:

    Maybe just 'cause Chromedome is an idiosyncratic favorite of mine, but I feel like this repaint could have worked. Bonus points for the coincidence that Classics Rodimus' car mode is based on a Dome Zero.

    In the US the Energon Swindle was released in the ROTF line so there's still a chance we'll get a classics version.

    ??? But Bluestreak wasn't blue.

    FYI, the Japanese version wasn't an exclusive. It was a normal Henkei release.

    I want a retool of WFC Megatron into Galvatron.

    Would be a perfect fit imo. They could keep the face the same, just give him a new helmet, new color scheme, and new gun. They could give him a new chest plate as well, but its not necessary.
