For many different reasons (price, lack of good figures, etc), collectors are forced to make due with stand-in figures in order to complete their collections. I recently ran into this with DOTM, trying to get my Autobot and Decepticon teams completed, and have resorted to a few stand-ins. First, a quick note: Stand-in can refer to a figure from one line representing themselves in another line (for example, Animated Arcee standing in for Classic Arcee). It can also refer to a toy being repainted/modded/transformed differently to represent a character (for example, the many gold-painted Sideswipes used to make movie Sunstreaker). Currently I am going for two stand-ins: I am using Tcracker's Topspin alt transformation and some minor paint apps to turn Movie Armored Topspin into Armored Leadfoot. Also, I am considering doing some minor modding to ROTF Swerve to turn him into DOTM Dino's standin.
