    Not so much repurposing a figure but an accessory this time, in this case, tracking down a second Cybertron Omega Lock accessory, coloring it black, getting 4 of the clear purple Decepticon Cyber Keys from the 07 Movie toyline, and giving them to my black Energon Unicron figure as a “Dark Omega Lock”

    I recently got a free Legacy Bulkhead due to some toy-show shenanigans,so any one got any ideas for a custom/repurpose for the figure? (THAT ISNT SHATTERED GLASS)

    If that doesn’t float your boat, maybe Armada Inferno/Thunder.

    Prime Vertebreak as Victory Leo or Razorclaw experimented on by Shockwave.

    TFP Grimwing as Cybatron Undermine. Fold up the wings as the sail.

    Voyager Predaking as Onyx Prime (Admittedly, the Ultimate Class Version would probably be better for that), Divebomb experimented on by Shockwave, or Rupture.

    Grimwing might make a decent Undermine from the cybertron series. There is an aligned comics character called back bite which is a slight recolor of skystalker. Backbite (Prime) - Transformers Wiki

    You could add in the FoC wreckers as the Commandos, especially If you have a spare set of Combaticons to head swap with.

    I need help to figure out what to repurpose Wrecker Bulkhead into. I do not want to get him just for Prime Breakdowns hammer. I already have my Movie Hound so I need something else. No General Optimus Prime. Even though that would be awesome.

    I already got the regular Legacy Bulkhead and the Wrecker Springer ordered. I want to see if I can switch there heads so I can make a Rook to go with Jhiaxus. It's the jaw. If I cannot I will just have Legacy Bulkhead as Rook and Springer as a regular soldier in Jhiaxus army.

    I had the same struggle with Bulkhead. I decided to get him and make him a new character, Cross-Country.

    Just scanning over the TFWiki entry for Bulkhead, a few ideas for what you could call him (that could still have some Bulkhead connection):

    Mudbuster: the added descriptor of that sadly unrealeased Bulkhead toy

    Crunch: A “Mighty Orbots” character who may have been Wyatt’s partial inspiration for Bulkhead (though not a character with whom I am familiar)

    Armorhide: The name given to Ironhide in Japan because Bulkhead stole his name.

    Just some thoughts… good luck!

    All good ideas. I thought about adding a Optimus head, but scrapped that. Hauler is rumored to come out so that is a no go. Want a yellow or mustard cab for Toxitron. Not looking for a Mudbuster. Already got multiple Armorhides. And Crunch is a nope. Interesting Idea though.

    my personal headcanon is that recolors (IE night attack OP) is an entirely separate character, even if the box disagrees. Sometimes that’s fudged a bit, IE if the character in the show for the toyline gets said recolor then its the same guy. But also a different character too sometimes?
