    I've repurposed HTFD Hubcap as G1 Hubcab because...the Transformers Legends mobile game did so.

    Additionally, I've repurposed Energon Shockblast as G1 Shockwave since no other Shockwave toy works (CW and FOC Shockwave are too small; and Animated, DOTM and Prime Shockwave are too stylized), and I plan on getting RTS Windcharger to repurpose as Overdrive since I'm satisfied with PotP Windcharger. It's also funny in hindsight because Windcharger's Alternators toy was originally released as Overdrive in Japan.

    EDIT: Just now remembered; when Takara's shuttle-Blast Off is released in PotP, I plan on repurposing Hasbro's jet-Blast Off as a new character named Skyblast.

    Roller's head looks a fair bit like T30 Skids.

    Not a repurpose but seeing Roller's head being compared to Skids, lately I've been seeing similarities between Skids head and Rung's when Rung removes his glasses.

    My HFTD Hubcap hangs out with my Ark-bots as well. He's probably one of my favorite scout-sized toys.

    I'll be doing similar with CW Blast-Off, though I think I'm calling him Take-Off.

    Similarly, I place TLK Barricade with my neo-classics because in Earth Wars hes made into G1 Barricade. Even without that, though, I just think he fits in well because the movie aesthetic isnt super strong in that toy.
