    As TakaraTomy shows no sign of giving up this lucrative (and yeah lazy, I guess) theme, it is time for a new black repaints thread!

    This time, I'd like to limit the list to strictly black/Nemesis versions. For example, characters such as Skywarp or Soundblaster are not included. Just to make it simpler :) 

    I add the links to our resource section - make sure to check out the figure you are interested in!

    1. 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?

    2. Even if you don't particularly like/collect black repaints, do you have any?

    3. and of course, post some pics!

    Huh, I've actually got a lot more on that list than I realised! Only about 6 or 7 but still, I didn't think I was a black repaint kinda guy...turns out I am (a bit).

    I'm not a fan of Black repaints, (Especially since I consider Universe Nemesis Prime to be the definitive black repaint) But I am EAGER to buy the inevitable G2 optimus black repaint.

    Don't forget about Botcon SG Rodimus.

    EDIT: I can't believe I almost forgot, Energon Black Unicron too!

    1. Do you like black repaints? 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?
    I'm a black repaint whore. I don't buy them all (no black keychain minibot reissues or black micro-combiner reissues for me), I do buy them for any mold I really like or any deco that really catches my eye (Dark Nitro Convoy).

    2. Even if you don't particularly like/collect black repaints, do you have any?

    Not counting Lucky Draws, I think I have most of the Black Convoys/Nemesis Primes that have seen an official release outside of Alternators/Binaltech. Throw in a few others here and there and it's at least over 20, though I don't have the spreadsheet I use in front of me to check (I'm on my work computer).

    3. and of course,post some pics!

    Working on it!

    Wing_Saber-X and Lbsammills, thank you for the help - added to the list :D 

    Forgot Mickey! How could I, he's one of my favourites.

    Oh I'm waiting for him, too! I hope Hasbro will release one, otherwise I fear TakTom will make him some sort of exclusive. They always do :mad

    I am very looking forward to them, too!! They should be out in Japan in less than 2 weeks :D 

    Beautiful. Just beautiful. WFC Soundblaster looks fantastic there, and I wouldn't be surprised if there'll be an official release down the road. Not gonna be as good as the one in your pic though.
