    Say you worked at hasbroIf you could choose any figure made in the last 4 years to retool and redeco to save money on new molds what would you choose and what character would you turn it into?

    I would like:

    DoTM Crankcase Redecoed with a new headsculpt as Movieverse Shrapnel
    Movie incinerator retooled and redecoed as Movieverse Ro-Tor

    A little over 4 years now, but I think it would be neat to see Cybertron Metroplex repainted into Metrotitan from Zone.

    RTS Perceptor into Generations Soundwave. After seeing several customs that have done it, I'm now a believer. The mold is perfect for Soundwave.

    Alternity Seeker -> coneheads

    Redecos
    TFA Voyager Starscream -> Thundercracker*, Ramjet, Dirge and Thrust
    TFA Deluxe Soundwave with Laserbeak -> Electromagnetic Soundwave with Buzzsaw
    TFA Deluxe Bumblebee -> Fugitive Wasp*

    Retools
    TFA Deluxe Soundwave -> Brawn
    TFA Deluxe Sentinel Prime -> Earth Mode Ironhide
    TFA Deluxe Bumblebee -> Cliffjumper

    * Those only needs to be released...

    There is a lot of other retools that I want. But even in dreams we need some priorities ;) 
    To bring some order to my many redeco/retool dreams I made a spreadsheet to list them: All Bumblebee body-type users, Venom and Grinder (from Blackout), Jackpot and Bluestreak (from Jazz), Horsepower and Sparkride (from Prowl), Skybite from Lugnut, etc...

    Oh... Yes... This... Oh so much!

    And generations Scourge into Alpha Trion (with maybe a different sort of wingspan in alt mode? Kind of change things up a little bit? Along with a head & chest (if possible) retool of course).

    Also generations Kup recolored & retooled into Orion Pax!

    A Universe Hound to Swindle wouldn't be a bad thing. Plus, recolor Ravage any way you want and it's still a nice extra figure.

    I missed Voyager Highbrow, but I'm not sure if I love the head or overall colors enough to pay way over retail. I'd pick him up with any alterations. Since he's only been used once, I think we'll see him again.

    Definitely want to see a white Windcharger with a new head.

    Stepper and Vortex exist, but they're redecoes/retools that I'd like to see. At U.S. retail.

    Dotm Sentinel Prime into Alpha Trion (Not Ultra Magnus). I have even found a real life truck they could base the color scheme on. Tell me if I should post it.

    Any movie BB into Wasp and other similar G1 characters.

    Leader Star Scream into any seekers

    Oh, and one more: RtS Tracks as Battle Ravage.

    I'd much prefer a retool with a jaguar head, but a redeco would be... acceptable (mostly since Tracks' head is not that far off from Shadow Panther/Cheetor's noggin).

    ... and though it pains me to say this, Universe Cheetor as Ravage. But I would definitely prefer the Tracks remold since the Cheetor mold is rubbish. I do think it would look better in black.

    I still want Cyb. Metroplex in a G1 deco. It's not like the mold has ever been reused.

    THIS.

    And if they need a name that's not Scourge, Dark Convoy sounds pretty cool.

    I'd like to see a Bumblebee toy into Wasp, or one of the many other BB redecos. Heck, they could even market them as Bumblebee, for all I care.

    Oh, and Universe Sideswipe into G1 Breakdown, RTS Jazz into Dead End, and Tracks into Wildrider sold as a giftset. A Motormaster-themed Optimus would be nice as well.

    For some reason I'd love to see a black TFP Voyager Prime.

    RTS Laser Prime retooled (new head) into Ultra Magnus. Those shoulders are dying to be Magnus's rocket launchers.
