Which non-Classics toys do you use in your Classics collection?

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 )

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.
Allow me to play doubles advocate here for a moment. For all intensive purposes I think you are wrong. In an age where false morals are a diamond dozen, true virtues are a blessing in the skies. We often put our false morality on a petal stool like a bunch of pre-Madonnas, but you all seem to be taking something very valuable for granite.

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).

...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.

Collection Count: I have legitimately lost count. Over 400, I know that much.
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.
ALWAYS buying Cyber Keys!
