Titan Master what ifs...?

I was discussing this with a friend. If you were going to make bodies based on the titan masters themselves, who would you redeco or retool? examples:

Nightbeat/Loudmouth - Chromedome
Ptero - Triggerhappy
Sawback - Weirdwolf
Clobber - Megatron

I don't get what you are asking. Can you clarify please.

Are you asking if there should be miniature figures based on the larger body's designs ?

Or are you suggesting that they make another head for a character that already has a larger toy in smaller format just to give them a weapon - but offering an alternative face design ?

I'm confused - as I can see the merit of say a Titan Master Optimus Prime (or Rollar) but I can only see the point of going backwards for those instances where the character has a distinct canon variation in head design (like with Chromedome or other Traditional Headmasters).

I suppose Ptero's jet mode bares some small resemblance to Triggerhappy's jet - and I'm actively encouraging a Deluxe Fangry so that would be the same idea in reverse.

But I'm not even sure if the line is going to be replace totally by the Prime Wars 3 Line gimic and so there won't even be hardly any more - unless they show up in a gift set.

I guess it's easy enough to see how the small Tank/Jet mould can be used for both Megatron and Blitzwing though - and perhaps it's something Takara might want to consider as it fits their theme rather well to do that like they do already with the Deluxes.

we know that the titan masters form heads of well known bots from both sides. I'm asking what if you were to make a body for them, based on their character? Ptero is Swoop, so I think a retool of Triggerhappy with Ptero's head would make an excellent Swoop. TR Megatron repainted and Clobber's head would work for Grimlock.

Thats the question here: if you were to make a body for any of the existing titan masters, who would you pick?

I'd say Nightbeat purely because of bias, but his Titan Master looks absolutely dreadful so I'll spare him that indignity.

Apeface deserves it, and I certainly wouldn't mind a Swoop... I also wouldn't mind seeing full bodies for Shuffler and Sawback, that could be interesting.
