    Now now, we're not all online all the time.

    Your list looks good, actually, I think you got them all. Only thing is Shockblast was never an upgrade. The repaint of him was his brother, Sixshot.

    The Divebomb recolour was shown, but was referred to as Blackout. Not sure about the other ones.

    The Omnibot recolors weren't.

    The Superlink repaint of the Terrorcons Chrome Horn (Insecticon), Jaguar (Ravage), and Shadowhawk (Divebomb) were. However, only the Command Ravage repaint figure was released in America.

    As mentioned, the Sixshot repaint of Shockblast wasn't an upgrade, but a seperate character.

    Energon Tidal Wave and Demolisher (Armada tank form) were both upgraded as well from their Armada paintjobs to their Energon paintschemes for Energon.

    I'm not sure if you'd count it, but Energon Demolisher (Dumptruck), Snowcat, and Mirage are fiction upgrades of Demolisher, Cyclonus, and Tidal Wave respectively. Armada Smokescreen was similarly returned to life as Armada Hoist. Also in a slight gray area is Energon Roadblock, who is the "upgraded" (retooled) version of Energon Inferno (Unlike the others, Inferno and Roadblock are minor retools and repaints of one another).

    While it's likely quite obvious, I should also point out that the Armada Minicon partners to the aforementioned Transformers are also "upgrades" as well.

    Most of the main cast in Armada got "Powerlinx" repaints, with a few exceptions (Hoist, Blurr, Sideswipe, etc)

    yes...the recolored were a small faction that alpha q created from the part of unicron he had control of and sent them against megatron and the other terrorcons....his group got it's ass handed to it in the few battles they showed...then the doomlock terror cons were revealed in the show as a terrorcon upgrade that megs rolled out against the autobots....
