    Basically check the kitbash forums.

    I'll point out the obvious you've missed:
    Cybertron Shortround - Seaspray
    Cybertron Swindle - Beachcomber
    Classics Megatron - Shockwave
    Any and all gobot repaints

    Alternators 2.0
    Rumble - Frenzy
    Ravage - Tigatron (Cheetor as a yellow jag is a stretch)
    Mirage - Dragstrip
    Shockblast - Dead End 2.0 (new head, two hands)
    Decepticharge - Wildrider
    Sunstreaker/Dead End - Breakdown
    Optimus Prime - Motormaster
    Optimus Prime - Trailbreaker
    Optimus Prime - Hoist

    Left Field
    Classics Prime (because you can never have to many of this mold) - Huffer, Pipes (would go great with PC)
    Bumblebee - Herbie

    I've got a couple more obscure ones but since I'm still in the market for parts for them I'm gonna be tight-lipped.

    An Energon Shockwave repaint is already in the works I think. There was a post in regards to that a few days ago.

    Seekers/Coneheads repaint I think would be unlikely unless they were like the Henkei ones and different enough from the Botcon set. I actually could see Hasbro doing new molds or repainting another jet molds and calling Thundercracker or Thrust. Similar to Cyberton Starcream repainted as Dirge as part of the Target exclusive 2-pack.

    Tigatron. Duh.

    Jazz as repaint of Prowl. NO!!! Jazz deserves own mold. I would be okay with a slight remold of of the Prowl mold but no to a straight up repaint.

    Red Alert. Duh

    As for more repaints of the Cybertron molds I would be okay with more as long as Hasbro did some slight remolding to remove the cyberkey gimmick and make it a simple push button. May not be cost effective, but Hasbro/Takara did remold the Armada Blurr, Sideswipe, Hoist, Cyclonus molds from minicon activated gimicks to cyberkey activate gimicks. So it could be done.

    As far as straight repaints/slight retools

    Cybertron Metroplex as Fortress & Brave Maximus!!!
    Energon Scorponok with G1 Paint scheme
    Classics 1.0 Voyager Megatron as Schockwave (but we're getting a Shocky)
    Classics 1.0 Starscream as the other two rainmakers
    Universe 2.0 Lambo mold as Punch/Counterpunch & TRACKS!!!
    Energon Snowcat as Kup

    Classics 1.0 Deluxe Megatron as REBIRTH CONVOY!!!

    Here's a question, who could make a good Perceptor?

    Not hating this as much as I would've figured. Would need a new head though

    Classics Ramjet as a Fi-Tor homage.

    That Cybertron Thundercracker mold - surely for some of the other Aerialbots?

    I'd have thought Classics Rodimus would make a better Tracks than a modified Prowl.

    This one was obvious to me. For a time I was considering picking up Energon Scorponok, but I held out thinking they'd probably do one, especially when they came out with the Universe Ultra class.

    The classics 2-pack Optimus in white and light blue as Ultra Magnus.

    And since its a small figure they could throw in a trailer that becomes armor, and sell it as a voyager or ultra.

    That's too cool of an Idea for Hasbro to have even thought of it.

    energon insecticon has bombshell

    energon ravage repainted has, well, ravage

    remold cybertron metroplex with the weapons has fort max

    repaint and remold cyberton metroplex has metrotitan

    cybertron voyager starscrem to WWI seekers

    cybertron prime, with head remold to ultra magnus, or rodimus prime

    i would personally love to see a smaller size remold of the origenal fort max released, not a headmaster, but with multiple minicons.

    and bring back the micromasters, micromaster bases, and citybots has supreme size and omega supreme has a leader class.

    Folks have already mentioned most of the ones I'd like (Scorponok, Seaspray, etc.) The only ones I'd add that I haven't seen (or missed seeing) listed yet are:

    Classics Seeker = Sunstorm (of course)
    Onslaught + new head = Hardhead
    Onslaught = Pretender Roadblock
    Rodimus = Chromedome
    Inferno + crane = Grapple and Hauler
    Inferno + targetmaster = Artfire
    Tankor = G2 Pyro
    Ramjet = G2 Ramjet
    Prowl = G2 Skram
    Hot Shot + new head = Dead End
    Cyclonus + new head = Devcon
    Dinobot = Beast Wars Grimlock
    Cheetor = Rampage
    Powerglide = Cobra Rattler
    CD Red Alert + new head = Doubledealer
    Any and All E-Hobby repaints (Sideswipe, Hound, Minibots, Mirage, etc.... though it seems Hasbro shies away from Diaclone-based stuff, leaving that more to Takara)

    I've never figured out a good repaint for Astrotrain. Blast-off doesn't really fit, nor does Galaxy Shuttle, .... nor do any of the trainbots. Guy is just destined to be a one-character mold, I guess.
