    They are as unavoidable as gas after eating Mexican food. Some are spot-on awesome. Others invoke universal scorn.

    Just wondering, sence we seem to be at the end of a new line of re-paints (Wal-Mart, TRU, and Target movie exclusives), what were some of your favorites and least favorite re-decos?

    I'm actually kind of disapointed that we didn't get Tidal Wave in a more "realistic" movie inspired color sceam as a store exclusive.

    Ebay:
    Movie Thundercracker is definatly one of my faves.
    Least fave is probably Rescue Ratchet.

    Ironic that they both clog shelves everywhere where I live.

    The Wal-Mart exclusives were pretty nice, save Divebomb.

    Best repaint ever: Sky-byte. Massive improvement on the base mould. (which left alomot all the details unpainted and had grey and lime green as the base colour)

    I really wish we had gotten a Tidal wave repaint, even if it was just a store exclusive.

    Least favourite repaint:

    Nightwatch Prime. I don't hate individual repaints a lot so I just picked my least favourite and/or the one that came to mind.

    Err... Laser Rod OP -> Black Convoy.
    Win win winny win win.

    Love my Classics Skywarp, too.

    I'm sure one of the 37 versions of movie BB out there must be pretty unnecessary, but new Classiverse Blaster is one of the laziest I can think of.

    Cyrotek is a pretty cool redeco,
    and I fall in love with any Optimus repainted in blue and White.

    Although there are the obvious mentions of Scourge/Black Convoy and The seekers

    Least Favorite hmm... First thing that comes to mind is the Universe Blaster and Springer toys, defiantly would rather have original molds for them.

    Any faction chaging repaints, I´m a sucker for those:D 

    T-Rex for example.

    Primal Prime is my favourite recolor.
