    This thread is a combo of remold/repaint possibilities for already made Transformers figures to add them to the Transformers toys after a long time without a toy.
    This will show some of my ideas for the character and then I will say which toy best matches them.

    Character| Best Match Toy
    Slammer | Brunt


    The Metrosquad
    Character | Best Match Toy
    Metrotitan | Metroplex
    Metroshot | Sixgun
    Metrobomb| New Mold
    Metrodash | Scamper
    Metrotank | (Like Slammer)

    So how are my ideas? And can you think of a potential character that you want in toy form and then say what toy best matches their look? You can even add pictures of the toy/character.

    Signing off for now,
    Michael Schlem

    P.S. I am on YouTube so if you see my comments on videos like Emgo316 and Thew Adams, you know it's me.

    These ideas seem very obvious and are characters that I have no interest in.

    Hey I am Back. Part of the reasons why I thought of these ideas are
    1. We have Metroplex, Scamper and Sixgun, But no Slammer. The G1 Metroplexers (My nickname for the group that includes Metroplex) would finally be complete.
    2. After we get the Metroshot and Metrotank, Brunt will finally have more Decepticon weaponizer brethren.
    3. I found the shear lack of Siege Deluxe Decepticons disturbing (Say like Darth Vader (Star Wars)).
    4. C'mon, it's a no brainer due to the return of Micromasters that Metrobomb get a new toy.

    Also I am a big fan of Transformers toys.

    These do seem kind of obvious, but some characters have more than one figure. I'd say including the series of the figure would help to know which figure you mean.

    Slammer is a tank. Metrotank is (obviously) a tank. Brunt is a tank.

    Hey, anyone have any characters you want a toy of? Comment on this thread with the character and the most ideal remold possibility.

    I'd love to see repaints of Titans Return Triggerhappy with the Apeface Titanmaster as G2 Smokescreen, Robotmasters Smokesniper, Beast Wars Starscream and the green RID version of their shared mold.

    I'd also love TR Triggerhappy repainted as Snare, Tailwind and Hothouse.

    Nitro Zeus body with the Apeface Titanmaster as G2 Tornado.

    Titans Return Megatron with the Sky Tread Titanmaster as Flywheels.

    20171224_120224.jpg

    Combiner Wars Ironhide as G2 Motormouth and RID Ox.
    Combiner Wars Off Road as Gripper/Blacker.

    CHUG Treadbolt as inner robot Cloudburst.

    20200202_143910.jpg

    Titans Return Bumblebee as Bugbite, Wasp, Glyph and Hub Cap.
    POTP Tailgate as Motorvator Flame.
    POTP Windcharger with a retooled head as Motorvator Lightspeed.

    Studio Series Jazz in G1 colours and as Stepper.

    The Siege Seeker mold as Hotlink, Bitstream, Nacelle, G2 Sandstorm, Sunstorm, Dirge, Thrust and Ramjet. And at the risk of a perceived blasphemy, Dirge, Thrust and Ramjet would not be Coneheads as per their G1 toys.

    Leader Jetfire as Hooligan.

    Finally all the unreleased Collector's Club Actionmasters at retail.

    The recently semi-confirmed (but nearly inevitable) Voyager Snapdragon would work very well if heavily retooled into Grimlock. The dino’s legs become the robot’s arms and the placement of the Dino’s arms is perfectly fine for a Grimlock-esque transformation.

    It kills me that we never got:

    Twincast - from TR Blaster
    Soundblaster - from TR Soundwave
    Hydra - from POTP Darkwing
    Buster - from POTP Dreadwind
    Primal Prime - from POTP Optimal Optimus

    It could work for Classic Grimlock's repaint Overkill too.

    Though I wouldn't mind Slash repainted as Overkill and Beast Wars Dinobot.

    A heavy retool of Siege Omega Supreme as Astrotrain would be great too.

    That Slash-to-Dinobot repaint is an interesting idea, it’s a pity that Legends isn’t a price point at the moment, it would have worked great in POTP.

    I was about to question how Omega would work as Astrotrain, until I remembered this guy! It would work incredibly well, actually!

    Optimal Optimus Prime Combiner from:

    Fire Truck torso

    Pick up truck limbbot

    Cutthroat mold as bat Primal.

    Dead End mold because of the go bots and that one Japanese line where he and everyone else were race cars

    Dreadwind mold to Laser Prime or Helicopter as SG Galvatron.

    Wow, I would have never thought that I'd create such a large post line/discussion. I have some more ideas.
    Siege Impactor combined with Siege Brunt Engineering and with a weaponizer ability would be a better match for a Slammer.

    An Earthrise Star Saber in the scale of Siege Jetfire.

    The new Earthrise Seeker mold remolded into the Coneheads (From France hon hon hon)

    Siege Soundwave as Blaster

    Siege Cassettacon (How do you spell that?) Lightning Round:

    Siege Ravage as Howlback, Stripes, Blackcat, and Glit*.

    Siege Rumble/Frenzy as Enemy, Rosanna*, Eject, Rewind, Flip Sides, and Solarbot.

    Siege Laserbeak as Buzzsaw, Sundor*, and Garboil.

    I'll make a seperate discussion line for my G1ification of Bayformers. More will be there about what that means.

    * Though they might not want to remember the associated Series.

    And I has to make that joke.

    Idk if this idea has been brought up before but POTP Punch/Counterpunch seems like it could make a great remold into a Prime Vehicon. It’s got a sleek-looking car mode and similar looking bot mode. Its transformation even reminds me of PRID Vehicon with how much of the car folds up into the legs.
