    Possible. They'd want to get as much use out of these molds as they can.. wonder what color schemes they'd come up with though?

    I'd like to see a Dark Rodimus. I'm pretty sure there was one of those in G1....

    Right?

    I don't want to see characters being repainted into themselves. I want to see new characters.

    I dunno, for some of them it wouldn't make any sense- like Rodimus? I've heard people say he should be repainted into Sideswipe- that would look terrible. Unless they invent some non-G1 character (maybe paint him yellow and call him "Hotshot") nothing really works other than being Hotrod/Rodimus.

    I dunno if I'd be into buying any repaint of Megatron, Mirage, Grimlock, Rodimus or Astrotrain but I'd buy a black repaint of Optimus as Nemesis Prime (not named Scourge since this is G1 Classics of course)...and I'd be more than happy to buy as many repaints of the Starscream mold as they put out. Hell, I'm PRAYING they do Thundercracker, then I'd Buy Sunstorm, and the color schemes of several backgrouns seekers. I'd be totally into a Dirge repaint of Ramjet, but I'd hope they'd remold the wings for him and Thrust.

    Same here I'd so want black Prime. The name Nemesis Prime is OK, I'd call him Scourge anyway :)

    Wave one of Classics has repaint-ability oozing out of every joint.

    Bumblebee already has a repaint.

    Starscream already has a repaint and a remold.

    Megatron - Well you could do anything really.

    Prime - already repainted.

    Hotrod - Could be done in "G1" colors. Yellow hood, gray boots, etc. Could also make a great Wheeljack with a new head and the spoiler remolded to be that little rectangular thing Wheeljack has.

    Astrotrain - A G1 no-brainer really.

    When are we going to get a decent Wheelie nod? Too bad none of the current molds would lend themselves very well to that, IMO.

    - Mirage as Dragstip (even if he is lacking a couple front tires)
    - Prime as Motormaster, instead of Nemesis
    - I like the idea of Megatron as Shockwave, but there's a lot of purple on him already and I'm afraid that the repaint may look too much like Megatron himself, maybe not, though.
    - Obvious opportunities with the SS/Ramjet molds

    Kitbashing would make a little more sense than buying a repaint, plus you make it more to your liking.

    They should paint all of them entirely red and call them Hate Plague Rodimus, Hate Plague Optimus Prime, etc.

    Kidding!

    It's all I ask for....

    I can't believe people actually want a black Prime repaint..I thought people were sick of black & white repaints?!

    My predictions:

    Astrotrain - Anime correct Astrotrain (grey & purple) or Blastoff (brown & purple)
    Megatron - Galvatron (purple & yellow)
    Mirage - Prowl (white & black; similar to Machine Wars Prowl) or Dragstrip (yellow)
    Ramjet - Thrust or Dirge
    Grimlock - maybe homage to BW Dinobot???
    Jetfire - ??? no idea

    Already done:
    Bumblebee - Cliffjumper
    Optimus Prime - Ultra Magnus
    Starscream - Skywarp

    Well, the Black Rodimus is an evil clone of Rodimus after all...

    But seriously, they could repaint them, and I would buy them all.

    Since everyone else is geeking out, I'd like to see a two pack, or a multipack (battlepack?) of generic seekers.

    I just got done watching the new Sony More Than Meets The Eye dvd, and there's around four of five generic Thundercracker-ish jets in the mines, and in the ending credits, plus the ones from Cybertron.

    It'd be a quick and easy way to bulk up the decepticons.

    What about that black Jetfire we saw in that video with the kid who got to go to Hasbro.....

    hasbro said they'd not repaint megs into galvy if they ever get to make a galvy he'd be his own mold. It'd be cool to get a hommage repaint of an older megs tho, either his blue version, or the black gun version. I'd love a black prime to.

    Hmmm, the only "dark" Rodimus was the one in the "Return of Optimus Prime", where he went "mad" because of infection from the hate plague and er, Rodimus was all red...
