    It seems like every original Alternator mold is getting not one, but two repaints or remolds later on down the line. So I was thinking, what about the Alts that have been done a paltry ONE TIME? If Hasbro's listening, we can avoid getting a vague "Decepticharge" character. As I can recall, the list goes roughly like this:

    Meister/Shockwave
    Grimlock/Wheeljack
    Windcharger/Decepticharge

    Wow that's a short list. See, they're all either new molds or they've got a third version in the works already. Well, I'd like to see Motormaster for the Grimlock mold, if they can fit a proper head-in-a-box under the hood. He's got a sword and a gun, it's a powerful-looking mold, it's perfect. That or Sludge/Slag/Snarl.

    As for the Windcharger mold, the small size with the big shoulders reminds me of the Autobot tapes. Maybe we could get Eject or Rewind to face off against Rumble!

    I don't know about Meister, since that Fairlady Z type of body's been done to death in Alternators. Cliffjumper? I'll come up with something better at some point.

    You see I don't mind repaints if they either have some sort of remold, anything at all (and no the tabs under Ricochet does not count) or be a character that is A or B list not Y or Z list

    As for Decpticharge, he is obviously supposed to be Dragstrip. Why he was not named that who knows

    Honda of America is extremely protective over their image. I bet they didn't want their S2000 associated with street or drag racing.

    How does that explain the hot pink Honda S2000 in that 2Fast2Furious movie?

    Windcharger's chest lends itself to a Hot Rod. But I'm sure that'd be out for the same reason as Dragstrip. Plus the red would be too close to Windcharger anyway.
    I think a nice blue would go well on either of the S2000 Alts. A lighter shade than Tracks, maybe we could get that blue Throttlebot? I think he would look really good in that mold. Perhaps redo Windcharger's head to take away the visor to make him a little more distinct. He wouldn't need much.

    I say repaint Windcharger in white as tailgate.

    As for the Mazda Mold, charcoal grey, hmm, one hand one gun, Omega Supreme.

    The Mustang, Gold and since breakdown would never fly, use brakedown.

    Hmm...

    Swoop (silver) or Arcee (hot pink) as the 3rd Honda S2000 remold

    Shrapnel (black) as the 3rd Mazda RX-8 remold

    Bombshell (black/dark grey) as the 3rd Mustang remold

    Since we're talking about repeated molds

    Snarl (silver) as the first and second Acura RSX remold
    Slag (silver) and Hoist (pine green) as the first and second Scion xB remolds (this will eliminate Blaster from becoming a Scion xB since it's silver in Jpn too)


    These are just some that came at the top of my head. I can't see why the Insecticons shouldn't be cars since they can't make animals for the Alternators line...

    I think that Decepticharge was supposed to be Dragstrip, but changed their mind at the last minute. I think they were trying to get the Ford GT for Mirage and felt that would be a better Dragstrip, they may have gotten the liscense right before work was complete on Decepticharge so they changed the name so they could use it for the Mirage remold. Of course, this is all specualtion. Unless they were testing the waters to see how an original character would be accepted, although why give it a crappy name I don't know.

    They would NEVER let a car be named BOMBSHELL, especially in this day and age :sly: 

    As for my choices....

    Wheeljack in red with white centerlines (The LE California edition colors Ford is really pushing) as Slicer, Downshift or Freeway

    Decepticharge in silver/gunmetal (Like the who-knows-if-it'll-come out BT version) as Overdrive

    Acura in traditional CHP black & white as Red Alert (You KNOW we aren't getting the Subaru and we may as well use the name)

    and for the inevitable rise of the 4ths...

    Sunstreaker (slight head remold) in blue with white centerlines as Side Burn/Speedbreaker

    If it did come out for the BT version, they'd have to call it something else though... Chargedecept would be my guess...:lol

    i thught decepticharge came about as just the combination of terms that were used as the place holder for the decepticon version of windcharger... Decepticon Windcharger...can be condensed to become DeceptiCharge? this was brought up on the tfans board....as for repaints...I wish they would do LESS. I think constant repainting of the a mold fills the line with trash.
