    Anyone else thinking of holding out for some repaints? Is it true that wave two has been announced as not having any new molds? I would like to hold off on Astrotrain and Megatron if there is a chance of a G1 color repaint. Also, does anyone think Skywarp toy will be later distributed on its own?

    You won't see a G1 Astrotrain or a G1 Megatron toy being repainted in to the Classics line. Astrotrain, the Classics toy, may get repainted at some point but in to what? There's no character in G1 that resembles him.

    Hasbro stated at BotCon that the reason Classics Megatron is the way he is, color wise, was to pass Hasbro legal. And it did, on the first try. Perhaps a "Galvatron" recolor, but I highly doubt we'll get him in G1 colors. I do believe they had the original "design" of him in G1 colors though, as a "try".

    I gotta have a Thundercracker repaint. A Megatron G1 accurate paint scheme would be awesome, but sadly I think its a pipe dream..

    I wouldn't want to see Megatron repainted as Galvatron. That has worked for every series in the past fews years (post Beast-era), but since this is pretty much G1-rehashed, then if they even do a Galvatron, it should be a new mold.

    I ain't holdin' out for NOTHIN' on this line... If it's a Classics only mold, meaning no CYB/ARM/ENG/ molds sneaking in, I will buy it...

    I would like astrotrain repainted into his show colors. Maybe a silver paint megatron, with red accents?

    Don't hold your breath for Skywarp being packaged solo. Hasbro doesn't tend to split up their store exclusive two-packs and sell one of the figures individually.

    Is Classics USA only?

    If Takara sold them in Japan, they would be able to do the G1 color scheme of grey, black and red. E-Hobby could do one if Takara didn't.

    I'd buy another Astrotrain in Cartoon Colors, or even in Camou Colors like Movor? (The Spece Shuttle) from the Wal-mart Urban Camou Ruination...

    wheeljack doesn't really strike me as the muscle car type. besides, ANY repaint from a different line means we know they're cheating...

    oddly enough, though, i wouldn't mind them taking liberties with the classics molds repaints - new characters or whatever.

    Agreed... They can repaint to their hearts content if it's on Classics only molds... All the seekers, Cliffjumper, Ultra Magnus, and Prowl/Smokescreen/Bluestreak (if they come out with those...)

    Mainly for me, show character repaints only. Hence why Thundercrack is highly needed. Ramjet could retooled into Thrust and Dirge.

    Can't picture anybody being redone with the Rodimus mold. Well if ditch the spoiler there could be possibilities.

    yeah, within reason. if i start seeing universe colors, i'm out. but overall, i think it's because i'm sorely missing the takara reissues and ehobby exclusives. this is my substitute.

    I don't plan on passing on any of em. I'm in love with all the figures I've seen so far. I already want Optimus Prime and Starscream and the Magnus/Skywarp repaints.

    I've never said this about ANY repaints before. Even C. Excellion gave me some pause, as has C. Smokescreen. But once I saw Magnus/Skywarp, I immediately wanted it.

    And yes, I will probably say the same about a Thundercracker repaint. I did about the Cliffjumper...
