    That is to say that each of the Classics Legends toys were repainted from a Cybertron Legends toy. Which full size Cybertron toy would you like to see most repainted into the same character their Legends toy was?

    Leo Prime (repainted from Leobreaker)
    Fireflight (repainted from Jetfire)
    Bumblebee (repainted from Hot Shot)
    Jetfire (repainted from Thundercracker)
    Perceptor (repainted from C.D. Red Alert)
    Whirl (repainted from Evac)
    Trypticon (repainted from Scourge)
    Menasor (repainted from Optimus Prime)

    Personally, I think the 'Bumblebee' makes a much better Hubcap.

    It's gotta be Perceptor. Somebody already did a custom of it but it was a while ago now.

    A Deluxe Jetfire... ugh.

    A full-size Whirl would be interesting, maybe. Evac never did get the opportunity to be repainted as something less... white and orange.

    Menasor could have been a more interesting Prime repaint than GF OP, that's for sure.

    It'd be a toss up between the Leo Prime and Trypticon figures. Not only because I think they needed to make a few more Beast figures for the series, (only Gigantion needed more) but these two best represented the character design for their respective counterparts.

    Tho, I'd almost rather see the Botcon Razorclaw than Leo Prime out of the Leobreaker mold.

    Agreed, I would love to see a full-size version of Perceptor.

    If not for the upcoming Classics Sunstreaker, I might have said upsize Bumblebee and rename him Sunstreaker. But now that's not necessary.

    So yeah, Perceptor all the way.

    Whirl, Trypticon or Menasor.

    That reminds me, I need to check ebay for Menasor, Whirl, Bumblebee and Jetfire since I never saw them at retail :(

    Trypticon, easily. The big lizard never gets much homage love, it was nice to see a little one but a big one would be great.

    Definitely Whirl or Trypticon. I never bought either Scourge, but would if it was done up like Trypticon. I did buy Evac..but there ain't a Cybertron mold more in need of a repaint (er..except maybe Dirt Boss). Springer, Blades, Whirl, something..Whirl being the best option.

    Leo Prime, Fireflight, BB, Jetfire and Menasor don't appeal to me. Perceptor miiight be okay, since I don't have that mold either, but I will get Botcon BW Megs one day and don't really want a Perceptor clone.

    If I can only pick one, then I guess it would be Menasor. I'd love to see Trypticon just as much, but Menasor makes more sense for the size of the character to the size of the figure ratio (taking Menasor as Motormaster, that is).

    As far as I'm concerned, Fireflight and Perceptor can stay small, because Fireflight (who should be Powerglide) should be a minibot, and Perceptor is a nerd, he doesnt need to be large. Whirl would be great full-sized, but I'm not as interested in him as I am in Menasor and Trypticon. The other 3 figures, I couldnt care less about

    Saw Perceptor and Fireflight, but only bought Perceptor. I did get a somewhat familiar microscope mode out of Perceptor, but he could really be cool as a enlarged toy. I could see so much coming out of that figure and it would be so awesome!

    Oh, they're both the same size as the larger toys (fictionally) just at a different scale. Whether Fireflight and Perceptor have toys at Voyager size or Legends size doesn't impact the size the character would be in the fiction.

    Of the available choices, the only one which interests me at all is a larger Leo Prime.
