    I just got Combiner Force Windblade. I don't know just WHO I was going to repurpose for this character at all (considering I still use T30 Windblade as Windblade and CF Windblade has a battle mask for convenient plausible deniability). A quick jaunt to TfWiki comes up with yet another alternate use of Windblade stand-ins (that aren't Maxima or Slipstream): Legends Nijika (Windblade's "older sister") has the same body type and is eventually used as the Transtector for Windblade as Headmaster.

    You win, Legends universe.

    Siege Overair as Oilmaster’s aerial component.
    123C547A-357D-4437-BF87-9E8AA6F68F08.jpeg 5807EC40-9E28-40A5-A759-88C241C00624.jpeg
    Pretender Oilmaster’s inner robot was modeled after Airwave, who Overair is literally just an exact copy of.

    The original Oilmaster figure had his inner robot as a repaint of Swerve’s targetmaster. Very flimsy and not up to the quality of his other two components.

    Pretty sure he can store in the shell.

    If I repurpose a figure it’s got to have a similar bot mode and color scheme. But most of my repurposed figures were officially repurposed in comics and the like.

    Off the top of my head. I was thinking about how Studio Series helicopter Dropkick makes a pretty good movieverse style Battletrap.

    Nice:thumb . I keep TRPRiD Hot-shot as, well, Hot-shot:D . Now that Earth Rise is coming out I think I may change POTP Inferno (ER Grapple has been announced so surely ER Inferno should be next) into either a Hosehead or Pyro.

    I can see it as Pyro but it needs some more blue on my opinion if he were gonna be Pyro. I honestly always thought POTP Inferno looked like his Energon counterpart for some reason.

    I know right! Might have a few suspended in bomb mode over a diorama.

    True, but I’m not wasting precious coin on outdated BotCon garbage wgenbso much good stuff is coming out soon.

    That could be a fun bit of customization. Take one of the Refractor guys and paint “Optimus Prime” or the names of any other important Autobot leaders you have.

    I did, though I chose Soundblaster due to his moldmate being Soundwave (Planet X) and that the colours are pretty much spot on.

    Sorry for spamming but I saw Studio Series KSI Boss and thought of this.

    SS KSI Boss as armoured Jhiaxus.
    For Titan Master.... Repugnus? Sawback? Quickswitch?
