    I apologize if this has already been discussed but do you think we will see Flamewar in this series? I believe it is highly possible down the road. It would give the writers a chance to have the Arcee mold on the evil end. Could be a rival to Arcee or a dark side of her.

    Your thoughts?

    Is this based off her upcoming Legion toy?

    I thought this was about the Prime threads going into a flamewar for a sec.

    Sure. If she's not an Arcee redeco.

    Excusing Dreadwing, I'm sick of repaints of other characters in this series.

    The plethora of them is endless. I mean, aside from Tailgate, there's Tailgate, Tailgate, and Tailgate.

    Right. And Hardshell, Starscream's clones, and the Terrorcons.

    I wouldn't mind her as Cee's bitchy twin, but would like to see her with a different head at least.

    You're sick of BotCon, which is all repaints.

    And Screamer's clones were clones. Clllllones. And the Terrorcons...Well, I'm not sure, but shambling dark masses don't all require a thousand unique models.

    Very random claim. Botcon has nothing to do with Prime, nor our disscussion. And who said I hate it? I like some of the BC figures.

    I would've liked some difference between the clones. Like if one had two head crests, or another had pointier eyebrows. Some differentiation would be appreciated.

    I'm not saying they should. But the 1-2 Terrorcon models isn't enough to represent a battlefield of dead robots. 3-5 different models is more like it.

    I hear ya. But if it's the only way we can get more characters, I don't mind if they re-use animation models.

    Before Hardshell showed up I'd have said definitely no, because they've been very consistent on no repaints/redecos showing up at the same time as mold-mates. I don't count Tailgate because they tried (badly) to obscure that he was Cliffjumper. So no Hot Shot, no Flamewar, no Dead End, etc.

    Harshell muddies that ... but I think it still holds true. He's basically just another Insecticon, versus a unique character.

    Exact clones don't count.

    And all of the above are exact clones.

    Guys, if they have a reason behind a repaint (a canon one) then it's perfectly fine and there's no reason to get upset about it.

    Personally, I don't give a crap about repaints/redecos aas long as they A) look good and B) are different characters instead of that powered up BS from the Unicron Trilogy. I'm just saying that being repaints/redecos lessens the odds of the appearing substantially.
