    Energon Prowl could work as an upgraded Machine Wars Prowl who's been portrayed as a clone of G1 Prowl in various fictions.

    I'd love a proper scout size update of Energon Prowl and Armada Sideswipe, the latter retooled from POTP Windcharger.

    Apparently, Cybertron Skywarp makes a nice stand in for Misfire.

    I was thinking of using Timelines Streetsmart/wise...though ultimately I'd like to...find a good head to swap...and...maybe...get the nerve to paint or dye the red (?) limbs...if Reprolabels/Toyhax were doing those conversion sets...back when this figure came out...he'd surely had been a perfect candidate...for a head/sticker conversion...

    I've been on a pretender kick and so here is my current list(including ones with official releases):

    Cloud burst- FoC Air raid
    Landmine- energon landmine
    Splashdown: Movie seaspray
    Crossblades: energon bulkhead
    Sky high - energon quickstrike
    Groundbreaker - energon cliffjumper
    Metalhawk- TR metalhawk
    Catilla- cybertron leo breaker
    Waverider- movie depthcharge or sonar

    Iguanus- cybertron wreckloose
    Bugly- most any waspinator, I use BW fox kids deco
    Finback- energon sharkticon
    Thundering - generations thunder wing
    Bludgeon- rotf bludgeon
    Black shadow - TR black shadow
    Skullgrin - generations skullgrin

    Just need a bomburst really but I can't find a good bat-former. Maybe movie mindwipe.....

    Convobat is a bat and in Bombburst's colors. Too bad about the price and availability.

    I also had that bat optimus primal as a kid and personally couldn't repurpose it as a decepticon. Nostalgia trumps obsessive collecting needs apparently .

    Beast Wars Sonar would work as Bombburst, I think.

    I'm really digging Convobat as Bomb-burst. He could also be used as Lost Light Crewmember Aquabat.

    For Submarauder I recommend Sharkticon Megatron (if you aren't using it as Shokaract).

    In had just happened to snap this pic yesterday. Air raid needs some treatment with the red paint pen to look like the inner robot. Splash down needs a shark tooth decal. Several I don't have but just had the idea

    I'm totall6 already using him has Shokaract. But that's also a sokid choice for submaurader. Maybe also energon mirage? He's got purple, he's nautical, he has a large helmet crest that kinda looks like that fin.

    What about TFCC Depthcharge? He's blue, looks like a sea monster and wields a frickin trident.

    Having recently sold most of my prime collection, I've kept my customised voyager predaking and repurposed him as classics dragonstorm. He's an old friend of my movie inspired tr sentinel prime. And the vehicons have become the stormtroopers for Straxus. The colour matches well and they have triangle guns, that match the triangles on straxus.
