    I'm a big fan of the G2 era (it seems like it's just you and I and a rare few others!)

    I'd be mostly interested in suggestions for the Skystalkers and Axelerators myself. Skram was awesome. The Predators and Turbomasters need love too.

    Some great ideas so far, but for the Roads - RiD redid their molds in excellent colors and you can get them somewhat cheap off people here. And the PCC Leadfoot makes for a really nice Leadfoot.

    Also, RotF Ransack is a pretty nice nod to G2 one, just not in color scheme.

    BC Thunderclash though is a bad choice. TClash needs to be bigger and bulkier and 'tougher', y'know?

    Wal-Mart movie Sideswipe is a color homage to his G2 Gobot.

    Here's a few:

    Jolt makes a pretty good... Jolt

    Legends Air Raid and Skydive are, I believe, intended to be homages to their G2 selves

    I guess as a stretch you could repurpose the blue Offroad Ironhide (or maybe his Cyberverse version, for size accuracy) into Motormouth. It even makes a bit of sense since Motormouth was an Ironhide repaint

    The colors and faction are all wrong, but PCC Undertow has the right alt mode to double as Manta Ray.

    EDIT: Oh, also, for Dirtbag, you might look at Energon Demolisher (the dump truck version) instead of Movie Long Haul. The style would fit Classics better, and while he's a different green he still has the domed head and truck-front chest. And for Roadblock, another good option is Grindcore. Aside from faction he's pretty close.

    Wow, I'll be really envious if you can pull off half of that stuff. :D 

    The Bruticus idea is pretty sick, I wanted him in G2 but only got Blast Off. Since you seem to be pretty creative and open to suggestion, perhaps Universe 1.0 Devastator (the RiD Build Team molds) as G2 Devastator?
