    It's your toy. You don't need our validation. I do think he could work for Bumper or a bad ass Scrounge.

    There are quite a lot of official repurposes from the various fictions and TFWiki gives a list of them such as Protoform Optimus as Prima or E-Hobby Magnificus as Shattered Glass Perceptor.

    I do bulk up the ranks of the Siege Seekers with the Armada and Cybertron Voyager Seekers.

    Here are a few stand in's I think work quite well:

    Armada Starscream as Bumblebee Blitzwing.
    Armada Hoist as pre Beast Dinobot.
    Cybertron Red Scrap Metal as pre Beast Inferno.
    CHUG Voyager Stormcloud as Needlenose.
    Titanium Thrust as pre Beast Terrorsaur.
    Robotmasters Air Hunter as pre Beast Waspinator.
    Energon Divebomb as Banzai-tron.
    Energon Battle Ravage as pre Beast Ravage.

    My list of stand-ins has gone don drastically in recent years.

    I still use Cybertron Smokescreen as G1. Why I didn't get the CW one I'll never understand ...

    I used to use:

    Cybertron Red Alert for G1 Ratchet. I hated Universe Ironhide so much I couldn't bring myself to buy Ratchet. Now I use Siege Ratchet.
    For some reason I got a Wheelie vibe from Cybertron Clocker, so I used him as Wheelie `til the TR figure came out.
