    I know there are similar threads to this, but I couldn't find one specifically for a Classics collection.

    Which toys from non-Classics/Henkei/Universe 2.0/Generations/Reveal the Shield lines (Cybertron trilogy, Prime, RID, etc.) do you use in your classics collection? This can either be for G1 characters as well as for newer characters. Also, if you use any CHUGR (GRUCH?) figures for other characters you can add them to the list :) 

    Mine:

    RID Optimus Prime/Fire Convoy is my Classics Sentinel Prime (influenced slightly by DOTM Sentinel)

    RID Bullet Trains as classics versions of themselves

    Energon Galvatron as Galvatron (if I'm ever able to afford the repaint)

    Cybertron Optimus Prime as IDW-esque Optimus (which is rather meta :p  )

    ROTF Bludgeon as Bludgeon

    ROTF Lockdown as Lockdown

    ROTF Mindwipe as Mindwipe (if I'm feeling generous)

    Music Label Soundwave as Soundwave

    PCC Huffer as Huffer

    PCC Leadfoot as Leadfoot

    PCC Heavytread as Guzzle

    PCC Undertow as Undertow

    HFTD Hubcap as Volt

    HFTD Breacher as Breacher

    HFTD Seaspray as Seaspray

    HFTD Tomahawk as Tomahawk

    HFTD Terradive as Terradive (but not the G1 one)

    DOTM Space Case as Space Case

    DOTM Skyhammer as Skyhammer (but not the G1 one)

    Prime RID Bulkhead as Bulkhead

    Prime Ironhide may be my Classics Ironhide if I get him

    ML Soundwave and DL Blaster are the only official examples I can think of. I'm not a fan of repurposing or putting non-G1 characters in a collection full of G1 characters.

    I use that Roadbuster repaint that came in the Target pack, only because I was lucky enough to get the Nanobot upgrade head for it. Really wish I had nutted up and bought the arm cannons as well, cause it is sick, but at the time it was a "pricey" upgrade for me.

    I sold mine, but I do like Universe Blades, though I don't know if it comes off as a classic Blades (solid figure though).

    Only this one...

    ...and this one. Especially since Seaspray was technically designed to be a Classics figure anyway. He was only inserted into the HFTD line at the last second for case assortment reasons.

    Quite a few, actually; other that my particularly devoted collections of Animated and Prime toys (due to their unique aesthetics), all the rest are lumped together.

    I actually have a lot of the same picks as OP. I don't rename figures, that always struck me as silly, but I'll lump lines together as long as the characters retain their original name. So I don't repurpose characters into other characters, but I will happily repurpose characters from one line into another.

    Not counting 3rd-party stuff and Botcon stuff (which straddles the Classics line already), the non-Classics toys that I have lumped in with Classics are:

    -2007 Walmart Fracture, Crankcase, Big Daddy
    -DOTM Space Case (in G2 Classics section)
    -Takare Mindwipe-repaint Dreadwing and Smokescreen (G2 Classics section)
    -HFTD Terradive (G2 Classics section)
    -PCC Leadfoot (G2 Classics section)
    -Rid Bulkhead (makes a good Classics Bulkhead)
    -Music Label Soundwave
    -Device Label Ravage, Tigatron, Cheetor
    -Device Label Blaster
    -HFTD Tomahawk (though I keep his Vortex repaint with my Movie figures)
    -2007 TRU repaints like Countdown and Darkwing
    -HFTD Seaspray, Bludgeon, and Breacher
    -GDO Springer, Swerve, Megatron, Hot Spot, Powerdive
    -Highbrow, Backtrack, and Deadlift (Classics neo-Gobots section... but I'm careful to not think of them by their Gobot names, so as not to break my totally arbitrary "no renaming" rule... same goes for Fracture)
    -Galaxy Force Dark Fangwolf... just because I like the figure, but all my AEC toys are packed away and not displayed. I wanted to keep him out, so he goes with Classics.
    -Galaxy Force Minerva-type Thunderblast (okay, I guess technically I did rename this one, because I think of her as Minerva... but that was clearly the designers' intent, so I feel somewhat more justified in doing so)

    Pending:
    -YOTS Omega Supreme
    -Takara FOC Grimlock (will be using the U.S. version in my FOC collection, and the Takara version in my Classics collection. Skipping most of the other Takara FOC figs, so he's not leaving a "gap" anywhere)

    I'm sure there are a couple I'm forgetting. For a while I kept Energon Scorponok with Classics, but finally removed him. He was living a lie! :)  I do reaaaaally want a G1 repaint of the mold someday, though.

    EDIT: Just remembered, I also have a Mugen Calibur figure standing in as Roadbuster. Urg, that one breaks my renaming rule as well, I guess... along with not even really being a Transformer! Oh well.
