    I was thinking of using a few Tailgates as a squad of Autotroopers but this is just as good.

    With the new MP Cordon/white Sunstreaker coming out, my idea for a deluxe would be using Generations Red Alert body with Universe Sunstreakers head.

    To me the Club Universe Ramjet looks more like him, obviously with a new head. Maybe from CW Prowl or something.

    Now that we have the TR/POTP Tailgate/Windcharger mold/figures...those of us that already had theT30/ IDW/CW Tailgate/Windcharger duo...may be looking for a clever repurposing...for the former duo...my suggestion would be...

    Freezon
    [​IMG]

    ...and...

    Natron
    [​IMG]

    Not the best idea in the world...but...a suitable one...especially for those that don't have a IDW collection/display...

    That is super duper weird.

    They do take fan input on their fb page, pretty sure that’s the only reason thunderwing from nitro and Minerva from breakaway got made

    There’s two groups, the reprolabels one is fan run but overseen by toyhax in the grand scheme of things. They usually seem to be pretty receptive to fan ideas though non commital. I recently suggested one for inferno to cab/hosehead with a new chest piece and they said it was a possibility (an actual reprolabels employee said that)

    I recently discovered this cool Roadbuster repaint: Roadbuster (2011) - Autobot - www.tfu.info

    I figure I'd use him as a stand-in for Kick-Out since he's the same weird white and orange color scheme, or he could work as the Spychanger Daytonus if you want. If anyone has a better cool-orange-race-car idea I'd love to hear it.

    For hotlink, animated Starscream is already basically purple.
    BH dreadwing is a solid ion storm. Blue, technically a seeker, cockpit chest, has a staff like weapon shown in some of the job storm art.

    Also, I totally use armada Starscream for red wing too!

    before CHUG, mainly during the Unicron Trilogy, i did a lot of repurposing. Energon Prowl to be a rebuilt G1 Prowl, Armada Red Alert to be G1 Red Alert in a new body, etc. After i got back in the game, CHUG was around for a long time so i could get real versions of the characters. Now, I am trying to downsize my collection, so I've given up on repurposing.
