    Either of the Vector Primes could work.

    I know the colours are wrong but I think Chromedome on Triggerhappy could work for Needlenose.

    Apeface on Highbrow for Spinister though I customised Highbrow.

    With the new Unicron (hopefully as of this post) coming in 2021. Collectors will be looking to junk there old Unicrons for the Chaos bringer that we all begged an pleaded for. We can still use those on our shelves and displays.
    If you have Primus you no doubt have him in Planet mode. Well having the head of Unicron can still be useful for display.

    Remember the Acolyte of Unicron from the marvel comics. Cybertron Unicron.

    While Unicon is chilling in space or on his way to what ever planet he wants to eat, your Autobots will land/crash on him and try to attack his insides. So what dose a planet have for defenses? His own foot soldiers.

    And when he needs to be more intimidating for intruders, he sends the BIG boys.

    And if they do manage to get to his Spark Chamber. They will have to deal with.....

    Universe deluxe Acid storm is my G1 Eagle eye. The dark green fits better and I don't have a nova or ion storm for him to partner with as acid. Plus I had EE as a child so it works

    WFC Selects Shockwave as the Space Knight the Galactic Man Shackwave. He is charismatic, daring, and always willing to impress the masses. The Defender of the Universe, he calls himself.

    Okay, but that's who this is. You can't repurpose something as the thing it already is.

    He is Labeled as ShOckwave not ShAckwave. I also gave him a bit of a bio to help give him personalty.

    I really hope they're not going to call him Galactic Man. If they do, I'll just call him Fistfight after Shockwave's Actionmaster partner. The singular 'fist' in Fistfight suits his having one hand.

    I was thinking of him being a mix of Star Lord and Booster Gold with Rom the Space Knight armor. Galactic Man is his stage name.

    I think World's Smallest Hot Rod could be repurposed as Micromaster Hot Rod.

    Legends Class Rodimus from CW could be repurposed as Micromaster Hot Rod, too.

    I feel he's a bit too complex to stand in for a Micromaster.

    The Universe 2.0 legends (what is now considered legion) one might be a nice sweetspot though.

    I know there are some crazy good customs out there using Iron Monger as a basis for Transformers: Prime Miko in Apex Armor... Here is my poor-man's lazy version:

    Marvel Super Hero Squad Blue Iron Monger Variant

    [​IMG]

    I like this version because the cartoony proportions help set it apart from a more MCU faithful design. Also, this one has part of a face showing through which makes it a better match for Miko than a completely armored head.

    Wreck & Rule!

    with a little work WFC Refraktor as Pirate Chairman Chairman - Transformers Wiki. Yes I know Perceptor would be better, but a purple Chairman I think would be better.

    Unless you prefer RTS Perceptor as Chairman.

    I love that. I know a long time ago I was searching for repurposes for the g2 foc combaticons because I never plan to part with them.
