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.
Not sure what to put here...

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 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

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)

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

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.
