    I know there are quite a few collectors who specialises in black repaints, and quite a few others who detest black/Nemesis repaints.

    How about you? My questions are;

    Do you like black repaints? (if your answer is no, well, thank you for chiming in anyway :D )
    What is the focus of your black repaint collection? Do you buy only black Primes, or if it's called black version, do you buy it?

    As for myself, I have some black Prime/Convoy figures, but since I started from RiD Scourge, I am only interested in the ones with a similar build and colour scheme, i.e. teal and preferably chunky shoulders. For this reason I am not interested in some black Prime figures, such as THS-2b.

    I have Black Lio and Big Convoy, but that's due to mould completion. I don't have many other black repaints. TFTM07 Black Arcee and I am expecting Dark Nitro Convoy, that's about it.

    Pictures welcome, too :)

    Skywarp is the coolz, and Nemesis Prime pwnz all Primes. So Black is the new...everything.

    Eh, I'm sort of in the middle. I don't have a problem with them, yet I don't specifically buy black repaints just because they're made. Actually, the only black repaints I actually own are my two Skywarps. One Universe Skywarp, and one Classics Skywarp (well, 2 Classics if you count the one I repainted into Thundercracker).

    Well 1 or 2 black repaints are ok. I especially like black rodimus repaints and the like but after awhile the black on black color scheme gets old. But they are better than white prime repaints....

    When we first started getting black repaints like Scourge it was pretty neat. But it's been so incredibly overdone since then that they now just come across as lazy and unimaginative. Got a new Optimus and want to make an exclusive repaint? Just dip it in black and slap on some teal highlights. Honestly, I can't see how anyone still gets really excited about a new black repaint.

    I'm not into black repaint, because it's often the same character only in black, or Nemesis-Character, wich is lame to me (but the can still look good). I will only buy a black Prime when it'll become Motormatster, otherwise I won't bother.

    I prefer some white Prime :p

    KING CONVOY, impressive display!

    OS, great custom figures you have there :)  Cyb Prime especially looks very good in black.

    Thank you for your inputs, everyone :)  To be honest, I didn't consider Skywarp (or Soundblaster) as a black repaint. I guess my view has been quite narrow.

    That black Prime collection is awesome. I guess it helps that Prime generally gets very good molds.

    If it suits the character fine. The only real Nemesis Prime I like is the classicsone soley based on the bio. But really,though. ENOUGH with the Nemesis repaints.
