    I was looking at this thread :
    Lancia Stratos: The Ultimate Rally Car Topic - Motorworld Forums

    And I was thinking it was quite cool that there was a Rally deco that closely resembled several appropriate characters a Blue one that is a bit like Slicer, a green one that's like Cybertron Downshift and some others.

    I was also curious has Hasbro got the guts to use the red cross Marlboro Pattern on a toy ?

    Or would they use the Alternators colour scheme as a repaint scheme ? or even the Movie colours of Blue - that seems a bit similar to basically the Binaltech colours in reverse I suppose.

    So I would like to know what you would prefer colour wise to see on a repaint of either the Classics or Transformers Prime version of Wheeljack..

    Or just discuss Wheeljack related issues in general like saying how much you want a 1980's Malboro Wheeljack or what Alternator/Binaltech might repaint into nicely.

    Share your thoughts!

    I don't really have any ideas. Cybertron Downshift would be pretty cool though.

    On the other hand, I NEED Tracks to get a Road Rage redeco.

    Not to go too far off topic here, but I think TFCC missed an opportunity there. I mean, they even had an unambiguous appearance by Road Rage in the Wings comics... I would've gladly accepted a straight Tracks repaint as Road Rage for the membership freebie.

    I'd like to see TF: prime WJ to get a tracks redeco, as well as an armada WJ redeco. (Retooled heads for both as well)

    I'd be all for (ideally Classics/Generations) Slicer, especially if he inherited the "Marlboor Wheeljack" head design. Road Rage from Tracks would also be awesome.

    E-Hobby just needs to get off their asses and make a classics run of all their characters.

    Also, TFCC could totally get away with doing a collector's run of repainted classics of characters they've already made, ie Slicer from Generations Wheeljack. Could you imagine SG Goldbug and Blurr from their respective Classics versions.

    Couldn't care less about Prime WJ, but I'd love a Slicer repaint of the Classics version.

    I dunno, I think Goldbug works better with the Hot Shot body.

    Now, if we got the SG Pre-Goldbug Bumblebee...

    I'd love an Alternator repaint of Universe Wheeljack, or a Big Daddy repaint.

    I like the mold, but... honestly, the red and green really turns me off of it. Just too... Christmas-y. Never liked WJ's colors. Like his head and character and accessories but... just never liked his colors.

    I know Hasbro would never have the guts to do this (although they wouldn't have to recreate its paint job exactly), but I'd at least love it if Reprolabels could make a set for Prime Wheeljack that would make him look like the Mach 5 from Speed Racer.

    I was hoping for an Animated Blurr as the Mach 5.

    It would be totally wicked if we ever got a repaint of Wheeljack (either version) into the Malbooro version, a.k.a. "Nemesis Wheeljack that promotes smoking on kids toys". Bonus points if they make it a Decepticon.

    If they wanted to remake Shattered Glass Ricochet (I think he's dead though) again the Jazz mould would be nice to see for him.

    I think It's very disappointing that there's no sign of Detritus yet either.
