Weapon: Fusion Cannon
Know this will be merged, so I'll just get right to the point and not say anything I know has been said unless it's urgent!

Energon Snow Cat as Crosshairs
It's an older mold, but it's also my favorite. Ever. So maybe a Club or BotCon exclusive.

Henkei! Hot Rod as Smokescreen
That unreleased thing from Universe looks awesome!

Animated Arcee as Crasher
Don't know what they would call it, though. Shattered Glass Arcee, maybe?

Reveal the Shield Optimus Prime as... anything
Scourge, Toxitron, Ultra Magnus, anything! I will literally buy the first true recolor of that mold, just because it's not in that awful color set. :SICK:

For me, just any repaint of RtS G2 Optimus Prime. Especially Nemesis Prime or Ultra Magnus.

Some nice ideas Dude. I'd like to see:

Generations Warpath into Brawl,
Soundwave into Soundblaster too,
Jazz into Stepper,
Classics Prime into Motormaster
Inferno/Grapple into Hotspot
Classics Megatron into Galvatron (incredibly unlikely but it would be so cool).
The Seeker mold used to make Sunstorm
Formerly known as the Tokyo-Matrix.

I'd rather have an all new mold for Swoop, he's my favorite Dinobot. Brimstone was ok for the time, but I think the character deserves better. Energon Demolishor was a fun looking mold, I'd much rather have him repainted into someone a little more interesting. My two cents anyway. I like the rest of your ideas very much though.

I agree with the RTS Optimus suggestions, and would add "Huffer", as I remember the old minibot Huffer and think it would be really cool to have a more modern version of the toy.

Also, War for Cybertron Megatron redeco as Galvatron, new head and paint colors.
Trying to think of a current mold that would make a good Cosmos, but drawing a blank...

a Powerglide repainted into Tailwind. Preferably that new one, since he looks small.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

Just a minor detail to fix on Classics Ultra Mags- he should be re-released in the Generations line with a blue mouthplate.

Also, perhaps they could make an Ultra Magnus variant of the Deluxe Class Classics Convoy for the Generations line.
PLEASE contact me if you have any of the following, or know where I can find them:
  • Cybertron Leader Class Optimus Prime's wings
  • United Rodimus Prime
  • G1 Optimus Prime's left arm, preferably with the long smokestack

Motto: "Where I'm going, I don't need roads!"
Weapon: Energy Blades
-Animated Arcee with a more G1-like colour scheme (would have more white and would replace the dark pinkish-red colour with a lighter pink); might be able to be released under the Generations brand
-Universe/Classics 2.0 Galvatron with a colour scheme somewhat like that from the Challenge at Cybertron set, but with a light grey instead of white and with more purple
-Generations Soundwave remoulded with a new head, new weapons, and no claws on the front as Blaster
-RID Scourge from RTS G2 Prime (would probably be released as Nemesis Prime to avoid confusion with Generations Scourge)
-Generations Scourge repainted as a Sweep (preferably he would just have different applications of blue paint, and maybe some Decepticon symbols in his wings; even though it wouldn't be G1 accurate, a new head would be nice to further distinguish him from Scourge, although it would not be necessary)
-Generations Scourge as Alpha Trion, preferably with a new head, although it would not be necessary, since he already has a beard
-Here is my idea for making the Stunticons (would obviously not combine unless Hasbro greatly retooled each figure):
RTS G2 Prime (with new head)->Motormaster
Universe Sideswipe (with new head)->Breakdown
RTS Jazz (with new head, and maybe a different spoiler or front end or something)->Dead End
Classics Mirage (with new head and retooled area behind the cockpit so he can have an exposed engine)-> Drag Strip
Generations Blurr (with new head, but keep the guns)->Wildrider
-I would also second the idea of repainting Tracks into Runabout and Runamuck.

I'd also like to see Runabout/Runamuck, although I think using Jazz as the base fig would be better.

My first home repaint was an Energon Optimus into Huffer, so I vouch for that.Alternatively Salvage as Huffer and/or Pipes.

The Green wrecker as Smokescreen.G1 colors.

The blue wrecker as mirage, G1 colors would still look similar to the existing wrecker, so the existing wrecker colors reversed?

Movie Skidz & Mudflap in G1 colors with optional G1 head.(!)

Classics Silverstreak/Bluestreak/Smokescreen,(or movie Bumblebee with Bluestreak head) mass produced UNPAINTED (because you paint it) and named for an Autobot equivalent to an Eradicon.(Think about it!!!).

Sargeant Kup as G2 Autobot Illuminator boss Electro, with head swap.

Tf1 'Power of the Allspark' Landmine as G1 Hound or Cliffjumper.(With Head swap, which won't fit nicely in Cliffjumpers' case).

It's something that should never be taken away."
