    Ok so I don't know how everyone feels about repurposing non-transformer toys as transformers toys, but I saw a playmates borg sphere from star trek first contact and immediately thought of what a cool cybertron it would make.

    Shattered Glass fan idea: SG Rhino from Fox Kids Rhinox.

    Motto: "Beware my voodoo powers! I vanish."

    A charlatan through and through, Rhino pretends to have numerous mystical powers. Actually a student of simple human stage magic and illusion, but good enough to fool the less intelligence Maximals and Predacons. Has amazing stealth and speed for a Maximal of his bulk. Spinning hypno-gun puts opponents in a trance. Mystic scepter activates his numerous illusions. Hates it when people confuse him for the Maximal engineer Rhinox.

    You could make SG Optimus into Purple Wicked Convoy. Takara did already with his MP.

    Thought up a bio for SG Barricade:

    Motto: “We all have a bad day, once in awhile.”

    Street smart but with a heart of gold. Prefers to work undercover, often taking the form of some junk or other, as he feels this is the best way to understand those who may turn to crime due to circumstance. Assumes the best of other bots, and hopes that minor pushes in the right direction can help those underprivileged few keep on the side of the law. Gets the job done, but ruffles more than a few fenders of some Security Op officers who would prefer things done by the book.

    I think with a painted face and optics, this would work as Backstreet.

    Netflix Deep Cover could work as a Generations version of Movie/Ride Evac. (Maybe swap heads with Selects Deep Cover to get the blue head.)

    Note: Literally looking what's cheap at BBTS and repurposing it!

    --

    Shattered Glass fan idea. SG Scalpel from Arms Micron Shou.

    Motto: "Please state the nature of the medical emergency."
    Function: Emergency Medical Holoavatar

    Scalpels are small and experimental Emergency Medical Holoavatars who reside in the the most advanced Decepticon medical bays, including the medical bay on board the Nemesis. Programmed with a library of repair skills for both Cybertronian and alien lifeforms, these gruff by dedicated artificial life forms are devoted to helping those in need. Note: Scalpels are only intended for short term use and leaving them running continuously can lead to them developing personality quirks.

    Shattered Glass fan idea. SG Vanguard from Arms Micron Sen.

    Motto: "You crash'em and I'll bash'em."
    Function: Action Drone

    Vanguard was once the partner of Sideswipe when he was an Autobot. Transforming into a piledriver, Vanguard added extra power to an already dangerous Autobot. When Sideswipe defected to the Decepticons, Vanguard ran away, fearing retribution from Optimus Prime for his partner's betrayal. Now Vanguard roams the wasted preying on empties and trying to think of a way to prove himself loyal to the Prime.

    I call my SG Ratchet "Bodybag" keeping in with the theme of "evil guy with a medical term for a name"

    Optimus, I'm having a harder time picking a name. Best I got was "Unicronus".
