    There's obvious ones, like ML Soundwave and FOC Grimlock, but I also have a small handful of non-classics toys that get incorporated into my head-canon's little "classics" crew, but NOT repurposed into G1 characters, like Energon Treadshot, Cybertron Thunderblast, and the PCC Dinobots

    I approve, except that the only guys who sit in my collection that aren't "Classics" per se are the Breacher mold, the Seaspray mold since it's hotly contested, and Tomahawk mold. I say mold because I get every deco of every figure I like.

    That said, WFC Soundwave is sitting in there til I figure out a better use for him. Maybe headswap and he gets to be one of the nameless truck guys permeating WFC.

    Mine are:
    Prime Deluxe Arcee as Arcee (if I can get my hands on Animated are another pink 'classics' looking one - she'll become Chromia)

    DOTM Skyhammer as, well, Skyhammer

    HFTD Banzaitron as Bludgeon because I like the name but Banzi's coloring is better

    PRiD Voyager Dreadwing as himself (like his character better)

    PRiD Voyager Starscream as Starscream

    FP DIA Commander as Ultra Magnus (if I ever get a real Ultra Magnus + City Commander that one will become a new different character:cool:  as Wrecker commando)

    FP Assaulter as - I'll give ya 3 guess but I think you'll get on the first try ;) 

    I did want to think of Treadbolt as JetFire, but his character has grown on me so I like him as Treadbolt(the sneaky S.O.B.)

    PRiD Knock-out and Vehicon as themselves

    Car Robots Black Convoy as an all new character I call Destron:D 

    GalaxyForce/Cybertron voyager Dirge as Dirge (I wanted the Starscream version as Starscream but that one cost so much and really only wanted the mold so I settled:rolleyes: )

    Planning on getting PRiD Hotshot (love that paint job) but I can't decide if want him to Bluestreak or Sideburn[​IMG]

    Everything that I deem has a similar aesthetic to G1/Classics, aside from A/E/C (which has their own shelves). PCCs, WFCs/FOCs, CHUGs of course, original Universe (the slew of repaints that happened RiD-Energon), and a few select movie figures(like Bludgeon and Sea Spray)

    That covers about 1/3 of my entire collection.

    Right now three of them. ROTF voyager Bludgeon, ROTF Lockdown, and HFTD Seaspray.

    I think Lockdown is great but he's a bit too movie like. I think Bludgeon is a perfect fit given his character and theme, and HFTD Seaspray looks like a god honest Classics figure for me.

    Gotta agree guys more pics! :wink:  anyway heres my set up for my OWN version of generations/classics.

    [​IMG]

    To start with my set up, i want a g2 theme so i use CH prime and GDO megatron as the leaders. Also added movie, prime and foc tfs but mostly in alt mode to blend better.

    some pointers:

    -I need MT v2 tanker for prime
    -wont get FP CC for united magnus as long as prime is smaller im ok.
    -downshift as wheeljack (the head is so similar to WJ)
    -Prime rid arcee and bulkhead as ironhide, i want the pink one better for arcee.
    -gdo swerve as kup
    -yet to open YOTS omega sometime later i guess, i want YOTS omega vs MT giant and FP bruticus instead of YOTS omega vs TFC herc.

    [​IMG]

    For the decepticon:
    -bludgeon and banzaitron with their leader GDO megatron ala seekers but trio of tanks.
    -Seekers with different mold with each other, FOC ss, Tcracker, and TFU tcracker as skywarp. The color of TFU of tcracker is similar to skywarp?
    -Movie shockwave i want him to be bigger,
    -FOC soundwave with deluxe laser beak
    -Will replace herc with MT green giant once the FP recolors for bruticus arrive. I also wanted MT yellow giant for g2 theme but its hard to find a complete set here.

    Thats is folks i hope you can share here with pics better. :)

    Energon Omega Supreme and Sentinel (though I've repainted Supreme)
    Cybertron Metroplex

    I hate to "count" RotF Bludgeon or Lockdown, as it's clear those were intended as "Classics", just not part of the more conventional line. The real standout for me is RotF Brawn as my "Brawn". It's not "cartoon-y", but I like the idea of him getting a bit of an upgrade of sorts. Fallback as "Outback" further solidifies this for me. HftD Sea Spray doesn't even make this cut for me, since one would have to include Grappel as well (there's no denying these in my mind).

    Honestly, I've said this before, but "Classics-Generations" is my "catch-all" line of sorts. What I have left of Unicron Trilogy stuff goes with them. RiD would if I didn't have a shelf dedicated to them already :)

    TFP Ironhide as the existing CHUG version is atrocious in both modes.
    YOTS Omega Supreme, I guess he is intended for classics though
    Energon Galvatron (the smaller version)

    Cyberton Evac is an awesome toy in a nice paintscheme.
    Blaze master is a fucked up Autobot with a mentality more akin to Decepticons and characters that doesn't really fit into their faction and walks the line are intresting.
    Cybertron Evac and Blaze master have similiar colors.
    Cybertron Evac and Blaze master both have a helicopter for an altmode.

    Thus I use Evac as classics Blaze master! And everyone else should too, because Cybertron toys are awesome and so are micromasters.

    I also use Cybertron Metroplex as Metroplex, Cybertron Landmine as Scoop, Movie Grindcore as Chrush-Bull, Prime Kup as Dipstick, movie Big Daddy as Big Daddy, movie mudflap (yellow crane not the dude from ROTF) as Erector and a whole lot more I can't think of right now + all the standards like HFTD Bludgeon and Seaspray and stuff like that.
