    I know it's a different Black Arachnia but since we have no information about her pre Beast Wars self, I thought homaging or referencing her Animated back story might be a nice touch.

    Looking for repurposing suggestions for these 3 Titanmaster combinations...

    The Dark blue Overboard TM is the closest we got to a Seeker Titanmaster though I'm wondering if he'd work for Hellbat.

    20200102_164717.jpg

    This Autobot TM reminds me of G1 Rollout and Landfill with a small hint of The Last Autobot. There's something regal about him.

    20200102_164742.jpg

    This one gives me a Needlenose vibe though maybe some obscure G1 Micromaster on the edge of memory...

    20200102_164640.jpg

    I look forward to any suggestions.

    If you have multiple ideas, please make one post instead of four or five in a row. I just merged enough posts to cut 3 or 4 pages off this thread's length.

    With the new Double Dealer arriving in ER, what to do with Gen Double Dealer? How about Masterforces Clouder. ER can be the PM Double Dealer everyone wanted(as long as it looks good) and Gen's Double Dealer can be Clouder.

    HA! I see what you did their.

    Way back during the thrilling 30 we got Goldfire. Who was a repaint/retool of the deluxe Bumblebee. This was obviously suppose to be Goldbug but Hasbro may not have had the trademark for Goldbug at the time. IDW made Goldbug his own character and not a upgrade of Bumblebee. So why can't we make Goldfire his own character instead of Bumblebees upgrade.

    Now based solely on the head, though admittedly not a perfect match, I was just looking at Collector's Club Double Punch and his head, well face anyway, really reminds me of G2 Jhiaxus.

    They've both got green optics, gold faces and big chins. The pink helmet of DP and red helmet are no more different than the blue G1 Soundwave being coloured purple in the G1 comic.

    I know the colours and alt mode don't match but how many Megatrons have there been where the only resemblance between them was the head?

    Anyway, I just thought I'd throw it out there.

    I generally repurpose non G1 Transformers into G1 but just for something different, I'm going the other way...

    Cyberverse Wheeljack as Energon Downshift
    Titans Return Bumblebee as Armada Sparkplug.

    20200108_193044.jpg

    Generations Wipe Out as some form of G1 Megatron with blue Marvel helmet. Maybe the Alternity Megatron where he has a car mode.

    Fun fact: Sparkplug was modeled after Bumblebee in his design.
