    In your opinion what is the greatest TF repaint idea of all time and why? MIne has to be Nemesis Prime in any form and The Seeker army.

    There's been a bunch out there...

    Skywarp's probably the top, every time there's a Starscream mold that's the color scheme in demand.

    Then there's Cybertron Cannonball that managed to turn an ambulance/medic bot into a pirate pretty seamlessly.

    Lots of other honorable mentions, Big Daddy from Cybertron Downshift, much better than the obvious Wheeljack. Any black Optimus though that's lead to an easy cop out Prime repaint for those molds. Ratbat out of Cybertron Sideways, that's one of those that makes you say "I never would have seen that if they hadn't done it" which is what any good repaint should do.

    If I'm picking one, I would have to go with the seekers. Well that is technically 3 (4 if you count Sunstorm). Either way, these guys.

    Well I'm particularly fond of Classics Skywarp, who was far and away better then Starscream. Also, Universe Silverstreak and Sideswipe seemed far superior to Prowl and Sunstreaker. Still, I think Scourge/ Black Convoy from RID/Car Robots from Laser Prime will always be one of the best weather you like Nemesis Primes or not.

    RiD Scourge.

    though I will give props to all the 84/85 repaint jets and cars, if only because whenever there's a new Starscream or Prowl toy, there (usually) is expected to be a repaint crew to go with it.

    Any toy: "How dare Hasblow put out all these stupid repaints! They SUCK!"
    Any Starscream: "How DARE Hasblow NOT put out Skywarp and Thundercracker and Thrust and Dirge and Ramjet! They SUCK!" :) 

    P.S. ... and Sunstorm, and Acid Storm, and Purple generic guy, and...

    Possibly the most intelligent and lucrative was Bruticus- not my favorite BTW. They milked that cow for all it was worth- and then some.

    RID Scourge is awesome without a doubt. My personal favorite is Acid Storm. Something about the paint deco on that figure just absolutely rules for me!The Target exclusive repaint of Armorhide was also awesome. I loved the black and yellow color scheme on that mold. In terms of improving the figure, I'd have to go with Cybertron Leader Class Galvatron. That black/grey/silver deco really suited that mold!

    Scourge I guess but Beast Wars God Neptune is a thing of beauty. Way better than the original G1 Gestalt. I wish I had one.

    I'd have to say RiD Scourge too, as well as Universe/Classics Nemesis Prime... I would say Movieverse Big Daddy too, but the quality of his head paint really does vary.

    you said idea so I gotta say a Black Galaxy Convoy would be incredible. It could have red, blue, gold, purple or green highlights.

    As greatest current repaints:

    1) Black Big Convoy
    2) Galva-Lio Convoy / Blue Flame Convoy
    3) Black Fire Convoy
    4) Cryotek/ Cyro Scourge
    5) Shadow Commander/ Black Unicron/ Shadow Megatron

    As much as I love RID Scourge, he doesn't even break my top five!
