    Title says it all; what are your classics substitutes?

    Their are the obvious ones like Energon Devestator and Bruticus as their classics selves, as well as E Shockblast as Shockwave, Galaxy Force Soundwave as Soundwave, and GF Red/Blue Scrapmetal as Frenzy and Rumble. The more creative substitutes for me have been ones like Cybertron Megatron with Tidalwave's arms as Classics Overlord, and Energon Starscream as a temporary Thundercracker to round out my seekers. So, how about you?

    I think the only ones I'm using are the Energon combiners. I do have a custom Energon .. Ravage or whatever he was, painted in black as Ravage. If I had the space I might throw Shockblast and the Wheeljack look-a-like in there, and maybe Armorhide for Pipes.

    Ebay:
    I've been tempted on multiple occasions to get Energon Shockblast for a Shockwave stand-in, but the fact that his cannon arm appears to have NO ELBOW WHATSOEVER is a constant turn-off. I know it's a small thing, but somehow dragging around this giant brick of an arm ruins the vibe. Other than that one issue, I love the look of the mold.

    Also with some repainting I may have Supreme Starscream stand in as a Classics (and size appropriate) Thunderwing.

    Besides some of the common ones that are listed above I have

    Cybertron Evac as the micromaster Blaze Master, fits pretty sweet if you check them up.

    City Commander as UM
    Warbot as Springer
    Titanium Scourge (until the Generations version is out)
    Custom Energon Shockblast as Shockwave
    ML Soundwave

    Pretty much all the standard stand ins. ROTF Bludgeon goes with the movie stuff, I think he looks out of place with my Classics

    It's too bad you can't use casettes with ML soundwave

    This topic sure shows up on a regular basis. And I'm surprised no one's mentioned Energon Downshift in place of Wheeljack yet.

    Botcon Slice is supposed to be Slicer so that doesn't work as a substitute.

    Apart from the FansProject stuff, I never use substitutes in my CHUG line up.

    I'm even in 2 minds about Seaspray and ROTF Bludgeon. I don't think they will ever belong 100% in either universe IMO, awesome as they both are.

    Are you arguing that Music Label Soundwave isn't supposed to be Soundwave with that argument?

    I think the OPs idea was substituting figures that aren't in the classics line with toys from other lines, like he said in his post, energon bruticus/devastator

    Energon Inferno= Hose head
    Cybertron Quickmix= Quickmix
    Cybertron Excellion, Energon Energon Hot Shot, Cybertron Downshift= Omni-bots
    Movie 1 Grindcore, he's not really a stand-in though. He's just there.
    Movie 1 Divebomb= Cyberjet Hooligan
    Cybertron Skywarp= Wind Sheer
    Movie 1 Jolt= Jolt
    Movie 1 Fracture= Crasher
    Movie 1 Break away= Get away

    I know right. I use the uni Blaster repaint (call it Cybertronian Blaster :lol ) right now. I may sitch to DL Blaster if I ever get him, we'll see come X-mas. But I want to get ML Soundwave with the Frenzy/Rumble head phones and put that with DL Ravage and movie 1 Booster XL to have the basic Soundwave+kids line-up.

    The various Wal-mart/Asda Movie deluxes are on my Classics shelves, as themselves.
