    what do you think of a couple of FOC roadbusters to act as rack'n'ruin? (obviously in a split to 2 bots mode)
    perhaps needs painting of light green instead of orange?

    AOE Hound was purchased to be referred to as Bulkhead in my Classics Display.
    BH Bulkhead was purchased to be a Roadbuster.... Just before Generations Roadbuster was announced. He can be brawn... Just needs a new head.

    ROTF Voyager Bludgeon for Bludgeon

    sometimes, depending on how I feel about the parts forming of the City Commander Armor on Classics Magnus, I use PRID BH Magnus as Ultra Magnus (until we get a decent sized Generations version……..come on rumored Leader Class)

    ROTF Scout Nightbeat as Packrat

    GDO Megatron as Megastorm

    With Generations Voyager Springer suitably awesome, I need a new use for GDO Springer. Anyone repurposing him?

    Also, since we're getting a new Breakdown and Drag Strip, I need to repurpose the TFSS Breakdown and Universe Drag Strip into other bots...

    I'm probably going to get some extra Hasbro Arcee's to use as non-Arcee female warriors. Probably repaint one as Paradron Medic. I'll use it as anything but Arcee. The Takara version is Arcee. Hasbro's version is custom fodder to fill in the female ranks.

    Maybe have GDO Springer as a version of him that hasn't gotten a hold of the triple changer technology yet. Like a pre Triple changer Springer.

    He would need a faction swap but he does look a bit like action master charger, although i use rotf dlx bludgeon for charger myself.

    There's the ultra class version too. Maybe I'll use him for parts.

    I just bought a clocker for a future custom. I already lost a little bit of interest just thinking about painting him. LOL!

    In a rare example of me buying a toy solely to repurpose, I'm preparing to repaint a BH Ratchet into a BM-era reconstruction of Dinobot II.

    It was brought up in the updated Actionmaster thread but you could repurpose him as Charger.

    Not sure what to do with my Uni Drag Strip either. I'll either just say it was his pre-combiner days body or just repurpose him as either one of these guys and call it a day. Mirage GT (2002) - Autobot - www.tfu.info Indy (2003) - Micron - www.tfu.info

    So I'm still having kind of a hard time deciding n a CHUG/movieverse police car to use for Mach Alert/RiD Prowl - any suggestions? I was considering the new Generations Go Shooter, but he's probably gonna be way more money than I wanna pay for a Deluxe.

    I'm super happy this thread popped back up, because that's probably what's gonna happen. I have CHUG Prowl and I like him well enough, so if I find CW Prowl (even if he's not a Lamborghini :D ) I can use him. Thanks!

    AoE Hotshot is my new Tracks, the head transplant failed. :(  Some of the one already named, ROtF Bludgeon, ROtF Space Case, GDO Clifford, FoC Seekers. Other on my shelf that don't really fit are RTS Lugnut. BH Abominus, Three (3) ROTF Ransacks, Dark Energon Prime Screamer playing Slipstream, BH Dragon Lady (forgot her name) Wal-Mart Fracture, ROTF Lockdown, Timelines Nightbeat, DL Blaster, ROTF Breacher, PCC Dinobot, just the core not the drones, Prime Ratchet, Yoda, GDO Leaserbeak Legends Prime Airachnid, FoC kickback and Energon Command Ravage.

    Dame my collection is eclectic...

    A long time ago I was using Beast Machines Snarl as the reformatted beast version of Rodimus. Also used RID Arcee as the non beast version of Night Viper. Most recently I got CW Hound to use as the Gobot Jeeper Creeper.
