    Dunno.

    Do you have any particular favourite characters you fancy updating that these figs put you in mind of?

    Have you ever, or do you want to, create a new character, for a fanfic or whatever, and make a toy of that (this one's always rewarding, I find).

    Have you had a browse through the Radicons gallery? You could see what other people have already done to the toys you have (the gallery's arranged in order of what lines the base toys come from), and see if anything there inspires you.

    Try having a look through the tutorials as well; sometimes someone's suggestion of a new technique can give you an idea for something you want to try it on.

    If you're completely at a loss as to what you want to try, there's no telling what might spark your imagination.

    I'd suggest, if you're totally new to customising, maybe taking one of your more cheapio figs (looks like you've got a couple of McD's ones, for instance), and just try a basic repaint into a new character. Have a scan through the tutorials for painting techniques and just have some fun with it!

    And then show us what you've done! Good luck! :D

    Ah, gotcha. Sorry, didn't realise - your post made it sound like you'd just started.
    But yeah, I'd just have a wander round the gallery or something, see if inspiration hits from that.
    How about repainting the Overhaul fella (Brushguard, isn't it?) into someone else; we've had Brawn and Wolverine that I recall so far... or like I said earlier, maybe try making up your own fan-character?

    I'm thinking;

    Hardtop into Rhinox, unless you wanna try Stranglehold

    Blue jeep chap(no idea of his name and too lazy to look it up) into Ruckus, I always look for a chance to see him customised

    Robot replicas Bumblebee into a protoform movie Cheeter, it strikes me the torso looks like a cats head, or maybe Im the only one who sees it, though legs would need to replaced and a lot of mods and essentially an Action Master, though I think it may make a striking statue type thing (might look into it myself), or even a protoform Bludgeon.

    Though it's really up to yourself, I hope you figure it out

    And for this, Ramrider, I love you.

    :lolol

    I think my advice is to just bounce around some ideas. Get to know your toys and let their designs "talk" to you. Often times, certain designs will dictate what customs to make from them.

    Whatever you choose to do, keep us posted :thumb

    I think Ramrider made a great point. My opinion is that all these figures you have got some potential to become whatever you want from characters we know and love to fan created ones so the sky's the limit to what your imagination can do, so go for it.

    I wouldn't mind seeing your Backstop there turned into the G1 Cassette-bot Ramhorn, much like Shinobitron did with Battle Ravage to Steeljaw. :)
