    I'd put this in toys but I think this place is better.

    So, basically just a thread for taking existing characters who aren't headmasters and making them such, as Titans Return is doing. And sticking with the style of some characters having unneeded third modes.

    For starters, I'm going to have the Dinobots and Autobot Triple Changers:

    Grimlock and Clobber, T. Rex/WWII Tank with an armored plow
    Sludge and Richter, Apatasaurus/Military Tanker
    Slug and Knockdown
    Snarl and Thagomizer
    Swoop and Stuuka

    Springer and Liftoff
    Sandstorm and Paradron only now he's a FAV instead of a buggy, to fit the copter more easily
    Broadside and Runway, now a battlecruiser and carrier, so he just changes from spaceship to naval ship

    Anyone else got silly ideas for unneeded headmasters?

    Hmm, let's see here
    Deluxe Misfire with Aimless (Joining Triggerhappy as a Targetmaster turned Headmaster)
    Deluxe Armada Sideways with Rook and/or Crosswise
    Voyager Spinister with either Singe and/or Hairsplitter, as voyagers are triple changers he would turn into a helicopter and something else (not sure what)

    Taking out the 'unnecessary' part of the title.. otherwise the thread could be unnecessary.

    Also, spell check your titles :)

    Alpha Bravo with Delta Charlie. Recolor of Highbrow with new face.

    Spinister with Singe or Hairsplitter, another recolor of Highbrow with a new face.

    Needlenose who, like Spinister, would have one of his Targetmasters converted into a Headmaster. Possible remold/recolor of Triggerhappy.

    Crosshairs and Pinpointer. Pretty much any Targetmaster will do, even if it's the gimmick that I like most.

    With Sandbar

    More ideas:
    Depth Charge with Manowar
    Rampage with Agonizer
    The two Beast Wars guys

    Jetstorm with Spy Streak (leader class Jetfire retool)
    Pyro with Hot House (Oshkosh Striker and artillery vehicle)
    Rotorstorm with Tomahawk
    Fisitron with Debris
    Guzzle with Top-Off

    Now to think up some G1 Autobot cars, which is one thing I wanted to do from the start but the headmaster names have evaded me.

    Pointblank and/or Sureshot for sure. Cybertron/Galaxy force Excellion/Hotshot blue car yellow windows, and Override would be cool too.

    So an 'Outsiders' set? I have a few ideas:

    Scattershot with Offshoot
    Override with Checkpont
    Hot Shot with Blacktop
    Fangwolf with Feroar
    Demolisher with Gunbarrel
    Vector Prime with Safeguard, third mode a streamlined locomotive
    Crumplezone (Ransack would be a Legends fig) with Blowout, turns from the trike to a hovercraft
    Brimstone with Conflagration

    And toss in the Leobreaker with Overhaul idea that one guy suggested.

    Armada Sideways is an obvious one, but I would like a transformer that uses both headmasters at once. There aren't enough two-headed robots and a line based on heads is about as good a place to put one as there could be.

    G1 Autobot Car Titan Masters:

    Wheeljack with Brakepad
    Sideswipe with Fishtail
    Hound with Beagle
    Jazz with Radiowave

    Inferno with Anti-Blaze (third mode is a ship with a spinal mounted-weapon)
    Grapple with Airhook (same thing as Inferno)

    Sunstreaker with Hunter.

    Repaint them in black, red and white and army build the Machination.

    I've repainted Hardhead as Gutcruncher and I'm in the middle of repainting Sentinel Prime and Nucleon as inner robot Thunderwing.

    Wheeljack! Being a mad scientist, I can't see him not taking part in this

    Here's my idea:

    His head will be named Q (a nod to movie)

    His ears in head mode will be his mini bot's wings.

    His body will share parts with Chromedome, and his car window (hatch? window? cap?) can rotate sideways to emulate his wings for big bot mode :D 

    Weapon will consist of 2 guns like Chromedome, both colored black.

    kinda hoping we get the missing 84/85 carss that we didn't get in CW, obvious retools/repaints notwithstanding (hoist and bluestreak should still be CW)

    that'd be grapple, inferno, skids, tracks, sideswipe, red alert, and jazz. i think it'd be neat
