    Although we are somewhat limited in customizing our MC characters' looks, we at least have the fine G1 redeco tradition to fall back on. We can kinda-sorta mimic the looks of dozens of other G1 characters using the already available chassis selection. Here are some ideas.

    Optimus Prime Chassis: Inferno, Grapple, Hot Spot, White Magnus.

    Bumblebee Chassis: Cliffjumper, Windcharger, Hubcap, Tailgate, Wheelie.

    Ironhide/Ratchet Chassis: Brawn, Gears, Hound, Huffer, Trailbreaker, Hoist, Outback, Rodimus Prime

    Jazz Chassis: Bluestreak, Prowl, Streetwise, Smokescreen, Nightbeat.

    Sideswipe Chassis: Mirage, Sunstreaker, Wheeljack, Tracks, Hot Rod.

    Warpath Chassis: Grimlock, Scattershot

    I know those are just Autobot ground vehicles, and there are countless more possibilities. But I think it's cool that it gives us a chance to make the MP feel more G1.

    I've already outlined a list of Decepticons I'd like to make out of the Autobot's chassis':

    Nemesis Prime (Optimus Prime)
    Darkwind (Silverbolt)
    Knockout (Ironhide)
    Storm Cloud (Air Raid)
    Blackjack (Sideswipe)
    Gutcruncher (Warpath)
    Whisper (Jetfire)
    Ruckus (Ratchet)
    Quake (Unnamed Autobot Tank)
    Ground Hog (Jazz)

    wouldn't scattershot be better served as one of the jets?

    He's obviously thinking about Cybertron Scattershot rather than G1 Scattershot.

    No. But that still doesn't mean you can't paint one up as a Decepticon.

    Nice idea... Like if you're mimicking the Shattered Glass alternate universe, you could have evil Optimus & Dark Rodimus, etc.

    Bee=Cliffjumper
    Sideswipe=Sunstreaker

    Those were the only 2 I could think off. I'll mostly just use the default story mode colors though I may make Sideswipe's chest completely red.

    Well, here's my take:

    Optimus Prime Chassis: Ultra magnus
    Bumblebee Chassis: Cliffjumper
    Ironhide Chassis: Skids
    Warpath Chassis: Grimlock (unless he's confirmed)
    Seeker Chassis: Sunstorm
    Sideswipe Chassis: Sunstreaker
    Brawl: Chassis: Onslaught

    Might think up some more later. I also wouldn't be surprised if I see a bunch of purple Megatrons called Galvatron.

    Ooh this all sounds really fun

    I haven't thought much about it but
    Tracks
    Bluestreak
    Sunsteaker
    Cliffjumper
    And wheeljack come tp mind
    As well as making airraid into Slingshot
    Stunticons sound fun
    And as I typed this I realize I will likely build a Perceptor from something. Maybe Soundwave?

    well from those sheets that showed the break down of classes gear available i'd say breakdown would make a good swindle and from the customizations video i saw a seeker coloured kinda like leozack which was awesome.
    also i guess you could easily make soundwave into soundblaster heh.

    I'm guessing the OP meant MC as Multiplayer Custom

    Amongst others I'll probably (depending on custom color options) make:

    Autobots:
    Naked Ultra Magnus from Optimus Prime
    CJ from BB
    Sunstreaker from Sideswipe
    Red Alert from Sideswipe
    Bulkhead out of Ironhide
    Fireflight, Slingshot, and Skydive out of Air Raid and Silverbolt
    Grey and purple Astrotrain from Jetfire (I put him under in the Autobot category since we've heard that you can't mix 'Bots and 'Cons)

    Decepticons:
    Drag Strip out of Breakdown (Barricade might work better depending on how obtrusive the light bar is)
    G2 Megatron
    Shockwave from Soundwave
    Plenty of seeker variations from Starscream
    Lockdown out of Breakdown (which must have been in mind when Breakdown was designed)

    We still don't know that some of these like possibly Motormaster and others aren't multiplayer character skins. I highly doubt that if you want to be a Decepticon leader class you can only use Soundwave.

    I kinda think Sideswipe would be a good wheelie.

    Here I go:

    Sideswipe Chasis: Sunstreaker...
    Jazz Chasis: Ricochet, Wheeljack...
    Optimus Chasis: Ultra Magnus, Nemesis Prime, Powerlinx Prime...
    Megatron Chasis: G2 Megatron...
    Barricade and Breakdown: Numerous repaints...
    Ironhide and Ratchet Chasis: Trailbreaker, Outback...
    Soundwave Chasis: Blaster...

    These come to my mind now, probably there will be m0ar...

    There's Cliffjumper and a bunch of other Mini-Bots from Bumblebee.

    There's the Paradron Medic from Arcee,

    From Warpath, perhaps Hardhead?

    I wouldn't mind seeing a either a Drench, Deluge, or Shattered Glass Sideswipe; I really love that paint job. :D 

    Megatron can be turned into Megaplex.

    In addition to Starscream, Thundercracker, and Skywarp, they can still get out of that design:
    Dirge, Thrust, Ramjet, G2 Starscream, Ghost of Starscream, Black Starscream, Clear Starscream, G2 Dirge, Sunstorm, Acid Storm, Un-named Blue Seeker, Un-named Black Seeker, Action-Master Thundercracker, and Shattered Glass Starscream, and unreleased G2 "Desert Camo" Dirge.

    From the sports car designs, I'm certain that Road Rage could probably be included. Perhaps Roulette and Shadow Striker?

    How about Toxitron?

    Also, why not some fun? Perhaps a RID character like Side Burn from one of the sports cars, or a Beast Wars character like Rattrap from Bumblebee?

    One more, while I know we couldn't play as him, how about Gigastorm from Trypticon? :D

    I absolutely love the idea of the Slipstream character model turned into Airazor! :D 

    However, for Dinobot, I think I'd prefer for him to use Breakdown's character model.

    Waspinator needs to be in this game! Just think, you can blow him up over, and over, and over, and over..... again! :D
