    Now this is merely in the case that some characters don't get new molds (or CGI models) made out of them and are simply redecos of past figures. For the Optimus Prime mold, I think you could easily make an Ultra Magnus or Motormaster out of him. I think you could retool Bumblebee's mold to resemble Jazz and give him a new paint job. Arcee's figure could be done up to look like Chromia and Elita-One (as well as other Female Autobots). And Skyquake's figure could be made to look like any of the Arielbots (including non-combiners such as Jetfire and Breakaway) with a simple head retool.

    I plan on buying an extra Skyquake with the intent of turning him into Skywarp. I'm not sure what to do for Thundercracker yet but it won't be a Starscream repaint.

    And I am just now starting on turning PRID Cliffjumper into Tailgate since they shared the same model in the show.

    Why don't you get the Japanese Warp?

    I'd like to see Optimus be Motormaster (with a new head, of course), but I'd want Magnus to get a new mold.

    Because the creators said that if they did the other Seekers they would be unique models so Starscream would keep his unique appearance.

    Flamewar from Arcee - I hope the upcomming legion figure is that.

    But wouldn't repainting Skywarp from Skyquake be the same thing.

    I like the BB => Jazz idea. One idea that seems to be pretty popular is an unmasked Optimus Prime head retool along with a Decepticon insignia on his shoulder to be called Orion Pax.

    It's mainly because the original G1 Jazz toy (as well as RTS Special Ops Jazz) have the doors as "wings" on their back, and I felt that retooling BB to look like Jazz would be a nice homage to that.

    Yes, but Skyquake was a very minor character and my Seeker trio would be displayed together where as Skyqyake would be elsewhere. So it's the Seeker trio that I endeavor to have 3 unique molds for even if they are repaints of other characters.

    I was thinking more along the lines of molds that could be retooled/redecoed into other characters.
