    There has been a lot of this, but which ones would you like to see that have not been made?

    I honestly want to see DOTM Megatron (Cyberverse or Voyager) redecoed as a Movieverse Scourge
    (Not the one with pink finger nails). With a new color scheme and a remolded Optimus Prime-ish head.
    Their vehicle modes are already similar, it could possibly work.

    And Energon Omega Supreme in more G1 accurate colors (No blue) and released as a Classics.
    His original Energon release is enough of a G1 homage as it is,
    a redeco or re-release would make me buy it in a heartbeat.

    Maybe even a Movieverse Ultra Magnus redecoed from Leader Sentinel Prime
    colored like this model here...but knowing Hasbro, they will just take the remaining
    DOTM Voyager Primes and toss them in a vat of white paint...

    No, they'll just take Voyager Prime and release him with less paint. Still will be red and blue but... less so.

    An energon corponok in G1 colors would please some people I imagine. Personally I'm still waiting for Cybetron Quickmix to get a Mixmaster repaint.

    Oddly enough, I'm thinking that an Energon Omega Supreme with a new Headmaster could be done as a Fortress Maximus. He's not a city or anything, but he did have a mode kind of like a space battleship. He's covered in guns that could be done in red and if the translucent canopy was green he'd have a bit of a Fort Max feel. Plus: Headmaster.

    It wouldn't be an ideal modern Fort Max, but I'd think it was a cool redeco/head swap if the mold every came back in G1 Omega colors.

    In general, I'd like to see the head and part swaps that have worked so well in deluxes expand beyond the basic recolors we see with most figures in other classes besides Grappel.

    Cybertron Leader Optimus Prime with a new head as Ultra Magnus

    Cybertron Scourge with new head as Doublecross (sure it has three heads but I like the idea)

    Universe Hound with new head as Swindle

    RTS Windcharger with new head as Tailgate

    Cybertron Armorhide or PCC Huffer remolded as Pipes

    I'm starting to think Cybertron Breakdown with a new head could make for an interesting Wheelie.

    I'm one of those people. It still puzzles me that Scorponok didn't receive a G1 repaint during the period where Toy R Us was repainting AEC Ultra-class molds left and right as filler for the movie line. Especially since Scorponok was a movie character! (Maybe that's why we didn't actually.... they didn't want him confused with the film version.) But I sure would have preferred him over Wingblade, Jetstorm, or Inferno. That mold makes a great upgrade for Scorponok. I guess some people just use him with Classics anyway, figuring the coloring is close enough.

    I know that this would never happen, but I could realistically see an Ultra Magnus from Buterfly Prime.

    I finally got a G1 Slapdash last week...I was thinking Energon Prowl with a Remolded head would be a pretty sweet homage.

    And I'm definitely on board with Energon Scorponok repainted in G1 colors.

    I'd actually really like to see another go at making deluxe Bee into Cliffjumper, especially if they used the Battle Blades mold. Or hell, even Wasp. That synergy green does look awesome on those Camaros...

    Personally i have always thought the classics jetfire mold with a remolded head and sword like generations drift would make a great Dai Atlas. That would be too sweet!

    I always thought that Classics Jetfire would make an excellent Hooligan.

    ... hear me out, here.

    Making the translucent plastic yellow would make the entire helmet clear yellow. Paint everything but the face red and you have a surprisingly good Cyberjet face (the face of the helmet actually is t-shaped). This also means the missiles will be yellow, just like the original.

    Then you have the fact that he would be a redeco of Jetfire, just like the original. And yes, G2 and G1 Jetfire were very different, but a lot of the elements did carry over. He would still be a futuristic swing-swing fighter jet with a cockpit chest.

    And lastly... it's a fun mold. Doesn't get enough use, in my opinion. Two domestic redecoes, one of which was an exclusive and Treadbolt was... an imperfect release in a lot of ways (poor distribution, inexplicable brown plastic).
