    More of a base for a custom than an actual repurposing, but I recently realized that SS Concept Sunstreaker would make for a great Calcar

    This is going on my list of obscure repaints for when people ask for box set ideas.

    Im not wrong in seeing voyager RotB Cheetor as a substitute for Catilla am I? It even is a triple homage to the minicon Catilla.

    For my Gumbo mix excuse for a collection I like the idea that many of the Shockwaves I have are alternate bodies used by the same Spark. When a body is disposed of, it is time to move on to the next suitable.

    the older Sonic comics inspired the idea. The cold emotionless version Shockwave seems fitting for the concept.

    I've seen Cyberverse Deluxe Cheetor as Catilla, that works better because of the mask.

    Yeah, you'd need one of the bigger Primes for the scale to work- Reactivate Prime, maybe

    Not so much repurposing him as giving him a characterization he never had; Code Red: Autobot Emergency Communications Specialist. Basically the autobot’s Dial-Tone from GI Joe. Spends 95% of his time in deep cover, chatting with Cosmos in the upper atmosphere. Known to be capable of extreme violence when cornered.

    Bonus: His backpack is even the same basic shape as Dial-Tone’s.

    "One of the scariest things that can happen to you out in the field is to lose contact with Autobot City. That means you are ALONE. No artillery support, no air-strikes, no medvac, no extraction, no NOTHING! The cavalry ain't comin' until the man with the radio tells 'em to."

    Riggorus makes for a pretty good Turbomaster Scorch. If Hasbro ever decides to release a Gen Selects Riggorus made from the Earthrise Trailbreaker mold, I might be tempted to get him for that purpose. Alternatively, and likely the better option given that the Diaclone repaints haven’t been huge successes, is to just retool the existing Trailbreaker/Hoist mold into Scorch which probably wouldn’t be that hard to do.

    I mean, I've repainted my BBM Sunstreaker as Sureshot, and then bought a second one and made Getaway

    I’m always looking to find a better Fulcrum to complete my Scavengers. A long time ago someone suggested Bombshock to me and it was honestly a really decent substitute.

    Randomly came across this guy today:

    With the colors, the goggles on the head, the missile motif, with Universe Dropshot I think I may be onto something here.
