    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.

    I skipped him because of that but if I did run into one for dirt cheap, I'd repurpose him as a IDW MTMTE Spark Eater since I can't think of anything else at the moment.

    EDIT: Oh, or that Alligatorcon from G1 Season 2 when the took Optimus apart I guess.

    I just call him Deathsaurus and treat him as a pet for Deszaras’ crew.

    Here’s mine with Lyzack

    I've recently done this a couple different times for an IDW Ironfist, most recently with Cybertron Scattershot who I think looks pretty good other than color and size. I also just got a KO of some 3P Vortex to stand in as a Rotorstorm on my Wreckers shelf, and a bit before that I finally landed a ROTF Deadlift to be Rung since he's small and orange.

    I mostly collect Legends and equivalent scale due to space restrictions, so I repurpose some. But I mostly repurpose for OCs.

    I got a BTS Sonicron to repurpose as an OC of mine named Sonica. She is a Soundwave fangirl.

    I bought a Hello Carbot Santa Fe to be repurposed as another OC named Hatch.

    I got a KO Ravage to paint tan for another OC. More info about them here.

    Finally I also bought a white KO legends Barricade that I had planned on turning into a legends Minerva but I have been having second thoughts and I'm thinking of instead using the Bumblebee I got in the set with him for her instead.

    That Santa Fe is adorable, I once abandoned a fanfic with an OC who turned into a Volkswagen GTI and couldn't quite find a good toy to repurpose for him, this thing could be perfect!

    Picked up TLK Cogman with the intention of making him as the body for the LG Spike headmaster.

    Also, planning to get Studio Series VW Bumblebee to use as Gobots Bugbite.
