    Now that there are even more of those I think we should have a new list. This time though I would like to limit the list to;

    1. Nemesis Prime/Black Convoy, including Prime/Convoy black version (i.e. his faction is still autobot)

    2. "Black/Dark Version". Example; Galaxy Force Dark Fang Wolf.

    Pics are very welcome (no hotlinking), but please name your figure(s) so that we know which figure in the list we are looking at. If you know the line, release year etc please add them as well :) 
    (It doesn't mean there's only one picture of a certain figure in this thread.)

    ^Thanks Blitz.! (Awesome art in your sig BTW)

    Vampyr, I think they don't count as black versions, but they are too cool not to be mentioned :D  (Congrats again on the pickup.)

    I have added Category 2 list, can't be bothered to find out which year, will add that later on. So probably they aren't in chronological order.

    Black Magmatron auction at Yahoo jp
    Is this legit? The price isn't actually not too bad. Not that I can afford it :lol , but not astronomical, either.
    I'd love this mould in black though.

    I got Dark Fangwolf for less that the retail price of Snarl last year. I was well made up with that.

    I didn't see:

    G1 Black Hot Rod(imus)
    Car Robots Black God Magnus
    Cybertron Override GTS
    Any apropriate version of Skywarp. :wink: 
    Animated Purple Shockwave
    Depending on your POV, Animated Blazing Lockdown.
    (Unofficial) Shadow Commander

    You've also got the dilemma of repainted new characters in darker colorschemes, like Universe Stormcloud is essentially a black Universe Classics Powerglide.

    Just off the top of my head, with no checking at all I'm not aware of a LD Black BWNeo Magmatron; just a TV contest prize version. (I think it was third prize in a contest with gold BWNeo Big Convoy as a prize) I'm likely wrong, but that's how it's striking me at the moment.

    Does BotCon Shattered Glass Prime count? He's not really "black".

    Also, Incinerator? Considering the black version is the Japanese standard release, it's not exactly a "black repaint". :)

    Good call, especially Black God Magnus, I've just seen him in the news forum!
    I don't know much about those BWN so-called LD figures. Thank you for the input, I'll fix the list :) 

    As for the dilemma you speak of;

    I know that's how the last one got too much :redface2:  I do think SG Prime can stay there though, just because of his characteristics.

    I also think we need more pics!

    Out of the unofficial "official" black list I have
    SDCC Nemesis Prime
    Alt Nemesis Prime (I guess that's also SDCC Nemesis Prime... And this one is en route, but I'm still counting it)
    RID Scourge (The king of black repaints? I think so)
    Dark Fang Wolf (It blends in with the shelf I look at the least... But it's there)
    Botcon '08 Rodimus (the one I keep forgetting I have)
    That black/tan repaint of Spyshot from Real Gear (Nemesis Spyshot?)
    Also Movie Big Daddy (probably counts, no?)

    And I might as well comment since I has no pictures...
    1) Black GT-R Convoy is cool. Do want, but I already got the silver one.
    2) Never realized there was that much difference between Alt and BT Nemesis Prime. The Alt looks better, IMO
    Yeah, that's it from me for now.

    List updated.

    Long time no see, SB1 :) 
    You don't have pics of SG Rodimus? Did you open him? Come now, make me even more jealous than I am now.

    Alternity Convoy Black looks great with the Silver, I recommend! I agree with you on those black Rams. Nemmy looks sleeker in pics.

    I went with "Any appropriate version of" Soundblaster like you did with Skywarp :D  I guess this should cover other SBs and like, such as ROTF Soundwave black version. Wait, should he go to the second category? My brain's not good for rational thoughts....

    BW II Black Lio Convoy. I must say, he looks fantastic from waist up.

    I'm not sure if Night watch prime counts since black is more of a secondary colour

    theirs also the Black editions of the Micro Master combiners I think its called the Reverse Evolution
    Sixturbo that consists of Sireen, Road Police, Neo Wheel, glide, discharge and circuit

    theirs the grand scourge model kit (based on energon prime)

    oh and here's a pic of that WST prime I was talking about
