Speculate away...do we think they will see a KISS use or some kind of BT use?
For the ALTs, there are molds that haven't seen repeats yet. If the current trend stands, each mold got three appearances.
WRX: Smokescreen, Silverstreak, Ricochet.
Viper: Sideswipe, Dead End, Sunstreaker.
Wrangler: Hound, Swindle, Rollbar.
Corvette: Tracks, Battle Ravage, Swerve.
RX-8: Meister, Shockwave.
Mustang: Grimlock, Wheeljack.
s2000: Windcharger, Decepticharge.
RSX: Prowl, Camshaft.
Ram: Optimus Prime, Nemesis Prime.
Again, if the trend of three each holds, we're missing one RX-8, Mustang, s2000, Ram, and two of the xB, GT, Civic, and XK. That's a total of 12 potential repaints/remolds.
As for BT/KP, who knows what Takara will do? They don't follow any patterns as far as releases go. And they honestly seem to do what they want. So as far as speculation goes, anything is possible.
Yeah takara really does seem to do whatever they want, case in point BT 17 and 18, there has not been a normal BT release in what, over a year and then BAM two pretty low production, yet important releases if you are a completist.
I DEMAND Ravage be painted up like Hello Kitty.
nightrain dude! long time no post!
...you returned with a hello kitty post?!
We might see them do something with Rumble and Ravage2, but I wouldn't bet a lot of money on it. BT is dead outside of exclusives, and KISS Play seems to have ended as well (thank God for small miracles...). So I'm not sure where they would turn up if they do.
No doubt if Rumble gets used in the Kiss line, it will be in blue and purple colors due to that one being more prominent in the series. As for Ravage... well, who would want to kiss that?
Yeah I been hanging out at the Hello Kitty forums ever since the fuzzy was dismantled
xB use #2 = Broadblast...
I'd like to see repaints of Rumble as Frenzy and Ravage as Steeljaw respetively.
Seems this thread has lost a little of its focus.
Anyways, a Japanese friend of mine speculates (or maybe just wants to see ) Ravage paired with Kissplayer girl who looks like Cobra's Baroness. I kinda like that idea, but it doesn't sound like the Takara thing to do.
Coming in future KP manga: Rumble pummels some hapless mostly naked girl into paste, then along comes Legion with a crazy straw.
I think it'd be cool to see a Blue/Purple Frenzy obviuosly. Ravage could be repainted yellow for Steeljaw, but I'd prefer he be repainted red for Rampage. Other cool repaints in the BT/BTA/Kiss Play line could be...
Skids into Ironhide
The Silver/Purple Decepticharge
The Skids/Sunstreaker/Grimlocke mold repainted as Police cars (I love me some rescue vehicles)
Using this template, here is my wishlist:
RX-8: Stepper (yeah, I know we have Ricocchet, but this mould seemed obvious), throw in a targetmaster/driver to spruce it up a bit.
Mustang: Bludgeon (saw a really well done kitbash with this mould)
s2000: Throw in another stunticon here (Wildrider/Breakdown).
RSX: Red Alert
xB: Blaster, Ironhide, or even Soundwave.
Ram: Motormaster could work with this one.
GT: Hot Rod, Wildrider/Breakdown (whichever once you don't go with on the s2000)
Civic: Frenzy as a repaint. Rewind/Eject as a remould.
XK: Steeljaw seems obvious, what about Ramhorn? Think you could rhino-fy the mould? On second thought, probably not. I've got no idea on a thrid use of the Jag.
XK Ravage could be repainted as Howlback, the e-Hobby exclusive which shared Ravage's original mould. XKs come in four shades of blue.
Steeljaw probably won't work unless the car exterior is silver or something else, as yellow isn't a factory colour for the XK.
Rampage could work, the XK looks especially cool in red.
I second that and add Ratchet.
Maybe the GT redone as Hotrod. Although these may be too obscure, the GT could also make a good Lightspeed, Getaway, or Blurr.
And we definitely need a repaint of Rumble to Frenzy!
I can Imangine Ravage as Kiss Steeljaw to go with Broadblast.
They have a "winter gold" color. Then make all the cat parts in yellow and it could work.
what?! when and why did that happen?
I'd like to see more 'novelty' molds like transparent Mirage. Stright repaints are fine but that Mirage one is genius. Admittedly I'm hard pressed to think of specific characters with abilities that can be made apparent by some variation in paint but if you wanted to find another good use for the invisibility thing, Ravage (the Jaguar mold) would be a prime candidate.
His G1 tech specs say:
Can virtually escape detection- emits an electromagnetic emission shiled, has a soundless walk, disappears in subdued light or shadow.
Seriously, transparent Ravage, maybe with a few teal highlights to give the impression of an EM field, or that he's only just a little visible would be pretty sweet.
I'd even go for a version of Alt Optmus Prime panted entirely like grey stone similar to his deathbed appearance in TF:TM
I could even forgive a few G2 style paint schemes for some of the Alts. like blue Grimlock or Sideswipe in black. I would especially LOVE to see a 'Shackwave' version of the Shockwave Alt, done entirely in grey and red.
