    The recent Shattered Glass Wednesday contest made me think about some other toys that could be repurposed into as yet unseen SG characters.

    1. Ultra Magnus - Classics Nemesis Prime
    He'd be black instead of the classic white, and have maybe the Shadow Commander armor colors as his powered up form.

    2. Rodimus Prime - Titanium Menasor
    Rodimus's upgraded form, would make use of a great black repaint of Rodimus Prime, and bring it full circle.

    3. Bruticus - G1 Battle Gaia
    Have you seen Battle Gaia? His brighter colors make him look more like a heroic Autobot than an evil Decepticon.

    4. Skyfire - Henkei Dark Skyfire
    I think a lot of people have already repurposed the Skywarp inspired black and purple repaint into SG Skyfire :) 

    5. Metroplex - Metrotitan
    This one is kinda easy, he's an evil repaint of Metroplex

    6. Star Saber & Victory Lio - eHobby Black Victory Saber
    I know there's a repurposed Star Saber out there already, but seeing as how he's quite unimpressive, the black and purple re-deco of Star Saber and Victory Lio would be better fits :) 

    7. Scorponok - Cybertron Dark Scorponok
    The Black Zarak inspired Dark Scorponok isn't really dark, he's full of red, gold and gray, which would fit in as a heroic Scorponok.


    Anyway, what other ideas do you guys have? Keep in mind, this thread is for ideas for repurposing existing toys, not ideas for toy repaints/retools/redecoes which don't exist yet.

    I use Titanium Menasor like that anyway.

    I think Officially Shattered Nemesis Prime looks like the bare body White Ultra Magnus If I recall correctly.

    Which make you wonder if Shattered Ultra Magnus looks like Classics Nemesis Prime or like Pre-Transformers Diaclone Powered Convoy / G1 Movie Preview Edition Ultra Magnus reissue ?

    Perhaps the KO Metrotitan being pink is a good thing it gives him a slight difference from the Original and all you need now is a big Purple Autobot logo for him. or perhaps some Metroplex stickers.

    He might look quite interesting though as a mirror of the Metrotitan colours so he's got blue legs and white arms, or Redish arms and blue legs and a white head... that might look quite interesting almost Optimus like.

    I also rathe rlike the idea of the mould being Autobot city colours

    Well, I've been using Universe Blaster and Blockrock as an SG Soundblaster and Laserbeak since they came out (especially after removing the paint from Blaster's visor). I would have simply used him as Soundwave if the TFCC hadn't already co-opted Music Label Soundwave. As it is, I figure, eh, SG is a different universe.... Soundwave and Soundblaster can be different and distinct characters.

    Also I use Legends Tracker Hound as SG Detritus (since SG Hound's color scheme is already determined), and Shadow Striker as SG Wheelie.

    Toy Dream Dark Fangwolf might make a decent SG Weirdwolf, though I don't use him as that myself.

    Sweat idea to use the wheelie re-paint.

    I'm useing the first Universe Snarl as SG Steeljaw.

    I think Movie Real Gear Nightbeat may make a good SG Buzzsaw. Either that or Energon Divebomb.

    I'm also going to use a RTS Jazz as SG Jazz since the real one cost too much. I'm thinking about painting his visor red, painting the spoiler black, and painting the headlights yellow. Hopefully reprolabels does a sticker set.

    I know music label soundwave was what was used for sg soundwave, but I think a little paint on WFC Soundwave will work fine.

    Any ideas for seekers? How about any more cons?

    If you're going to go the semi-custom route, might as well headswap with a Universe Ratchet/Ironhide and repaint it to match his earth-mode.

    There's a KO CHMS Wheelie coming out and word is there's going to be a black one so I'd guess that means he might be ideal for shattered Wheelie.

    Thing is though SG wheelie is suppose to be a huge hulking barbarian type warlord. A minibot sized figure wouldnt fit in my opinion. I would go with Movie wheelie. compared to the size of his robot mode he is a hulking brute. Plus you have the added bonus of his bladed hands.

    I've always felt that Classics Storm Cloud would work as SG Powerglide.

    S.g. Heroic decepticon scourge: rts g2 prime but with an silver body.

    S.g. Evil autobot jazz v.2: just jazz with the rts mold.

    Heroic autobot bulkhead: ultra class onslaught with new head mold and in green for 2012 set.

    S.g. Ferocious maximal dinobot: deluxe dinobot with bw megatron colors.

    S.g. Protective predacon megatron : cybertron megatron with tan and more realistic colors of a t rex.

    Does anyone have good ideas for SG Skywarp? I find it strange how he's one of the most prominent Decepticons, and yet, hasn't been featured yet in SG fiction.

    How about Smokescreen colors? Considering that they both are one of three shared molds...seems almost logical. Plus, it would be garish enough to go with SG Thundercracker.

    I was actually meaning to ask for repurposed toy ideas :)  I just find it amusing that the Seekers in the SG universe aren't the one-mold character like they are in most of the other universes. I guess it's the SG-ness of it all :)
