    The black Perceptor repaint, an d the Protect Black Ironhide come to mind, along with the red Tracks, but, are their any others that can be repurposed as SG?

    None of them :)  I'd like G1 to be SG repaints free:thumbs2: 

    Seriously... maybe those Bape Convoys? I don't remember their names

    Well, the E-Hobby Insecticons were already repurposed by TFCC as SG Insecticons... so despite their brickiness, I have them displayed right alongside my other SG figures (hell, they're hardly more brickish than Armada Wheeljack, and his Sideswipe repaint stands with SG; I don't hold the SG shelf to the same modern-articulation standards as, say, the Classics shelf).

    As Soundwinder said, E-Hobby repaints are the natural choice. Some have already been appropriated; of course SG Ravage was based on Glit, though eventually he got his own dedicated figure. Sundor would make a good SG Laserbeak or Buzzsaw, though he doesn't really match the coloring they are given in the Club comic. Hauler makes a great SG Grapple (arguably a better fit than using that color scheme for Hauler himself, since he was colored orange in his one appearance). I actually REALLY hope that someday we get a Constructicon-colored SG Grapple; as with Evil Tracks, people who hate SG could always repurpose him.

    Aside from that, maybe some of the non-US repaints of various molds? The expensive South American Minibots would be good SG candidates, as would Salt-Man Z and Robot-Man X.

    Or, what about some of the bots that were repurposed for the Brave series? Get a Brave Death Garry Gun, slap a purple Autobot logo on there, and you have a perfect SG Sky Garry.

    Heck, you could finally find a use for Red Bumblebee and Yellow Cliffjumper and call them, respectively, SG Glyph and SG Tap-Out. :)

    Do the BAPE Convoys have names?

    Well, our own Superpredaking did a video review of it here. A couple years ago it was relatively cheaply available (I have one that I got for about $40, I think) but now the supply seems to have dwindled and gone up in price. The Korean version is the same toy (as far as I know), in different packaging, and sells for less than the Japanese version.

    Essentially it is the same toy as Sky Garry, but it does come with a couple little tiny rubber Brave robot figures.

    Slicer is SG Wheeljack.

    Robotmasters Wrecker Hook and RID TOwline? Robotmasters is an extension of G1.

    Probably done but we could switch Rumble and Frenzy?

    I'll watch the video when I get a chance. My Sky Garry is a KO, so if it's not too expensive, I'd love to have this.

    I like to use the G1 yellow Cliffhumper and red Bumblebee as SG Tapout and Glyph.

    I can see that working. I have the Black Protect Ironhide as SG.
