    Neat idea , I tend to steer clear of those exclusives due to budget reasons.

    I typically don't buy exclusives for repurposing either. But some of the few I've got over the years do have some potential. I'm gonna list them and some ideas in another post.

    After I've noticed that deluxe TLK Megatron has G1-esque face I started to think about buying him and repurposing him as Quake who decided to become a stealth bomber for reasons. That or I will call him Armada Thunderwing.

    I'm thinking on using him as Beast Machines Megatron. His head resembles the control helmet and the muted colour scheme is reminiscent of the entire control harness.

    That's cool idea as well. It reminds that somebody suggested to repurpose Megs into Fallen. Funny, so many characters work for this figure except TLK Megatron.

    I would've thought that Leader TLK Megatron would be better as Liege Maximo, what with the horns, goblin face and the giant gun-arm.

    That's who they should've painted him as in the first place damnit... We didn't need another Inferno.

    Agreed. Even the alt mode would've worked quite well.

    I've been torn on that Inferno - I want him to be a Hosehead/Cab but tbh I kinda like this mold better than the older Inferno mold overall, and since I still have that Kids' Day Protectobot Hot Spot as my "Inferno" I'm not sure who should be who anymore. I already have the Botcon Pyro from forever ago, and there's a 3P version of that mold as Fire Convoy that should eventually be coming in the mail, so maybe he'll just wind up being Guard City still. :lol 

    Dude, those look fantastic! I love seeing Minerva in the Getaway mold, and that Hosehead is amazing. What Dai Atlus is that back there?

    I'm planning on picking up Nitro as I stuck a G1 Dreadwind face on a Titanmaster and want to use it as an updated Dreadwind.

    As for Blast Off I'm using the jet version while the shuttle version will be known as Take Off for CW. Since some people are calling their jet Blast Off, Take Off I'm just reversing it a bit. Yeah, it's not the greatest repurposing job...it's pretty much half assed, but to me it works because damnit the interworking of my mind are an enigma and holy crap that was line from SpongeBob Squarepants.
