    Well Ironworks has two new figures and Backstreet only has his disappointing G1 toy. Their character models have similar head designs and their colour schemes aren't a million miles away.

    No offence mate but there are a lot of repurposing suggestions on this thread that require a lot more suspension of belief than these two. Not sure why you're singling me out.

    The original Roadblock was repainted into Autocrusher so it only seems fitting that a direct homage to Roadblock be reused as his Predacon counterpart.

    I’ve unwittingly started a BWII Predacon collection and I need to fill some gaps cause the Seacons are coming and I’m currently building a Gigastorm.
    For Dirge, Thrust and Starscream I’m going to use Siege Ion Storm, Nova Storm and Hotlink but I still need BB and Autoslinger (Grapple?)

    I’m replacing Galvatron and Megastorm with LG G2 Megatron, most of these guys were his direct minions from some club fiction so I’ll take OG Megatron wearing some fancy armor over a drunkard LARPing as the Mad Tyrant and his dorky little brother.

    For Autoslinger, Universe 2.0 Heavy Load ROTF Payload?

    Great idea with the Countdown seeing as the Voyager mold of the Percepter (from Cybertron Defense Red Alert) was actually redecoed into Countdown.

    If you want an Ironworks/tread truck to go with the Modulator figure but don't want to pay the hefty fee for the Micromaster 10-pack, Huffer from Power Core Combiners could be a decent stand in. :) 
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Edit: In retrospect, after actually having now purchased a Huffer, he's way too big! I haven't owned any PCC figures before so I didn't realize Huffer is almost as tall as a modern deluxe! Lol

    anyone have any ideas for Micronus Prime?

    I'm thinking either Cyberverse Flak or a Minicon Backtrack (green sports car)

    Or you could use... Battletrap.

    I use Armada Overload, myself. He's a Minicon and covers every [blank]-master type.

    so I use Gen redalert as clampdown, probably an obvious repurpose idea
    [​IMG]
    but I wanted to share this dumb way of remembering he's clampdown
    eventually if none of them get announced with wfc I plan to repurpose a redalert with sunstreaker's head as a corden and a universe sideswipe with sunstreakers head as spinout
    [​IMG]
    I've been using this guy as my chug bulkhead and he works quite well,
