    I realize they started to go down hill but there was still a lot of possibilites with what they could have done given the rights to certain cars.

    repaints didnt cost any money for sculpting or licenses (just new paint decos and the occasional slight remold), and their sales gave them more money to use on new molds. if it hadnt been for repaints, the line probably would have ended before any of the bubble-box figures were released.

    true,but i personally questioned the sheer number of repaints.we got how many corvettes?i counted 2 tracks,ravage and swerve.2 or even 3 would have been enough.

    the re-release of tracks was not a repaint, it was in response to him being a fan-favorite and extremely rare. It's typically viewed as one of the cooler things hasbro did for the fans.

    That can't be right because we all know Hasbro is evil, and lazy and hates us fans!

    he was NEVER released in yellow. Takara released a BT yellow Tracks, but we never got an Alt. The only ones you'll find are Testshots.

    exactly, but it was never RELEASED. you just happened to get extremely lucky. You cant count a non-released toy when you figure out number of repaints that were made.

    but he was made in 2 colors,which brings the corvette count to 4.
    the wrangler count is at 3.
    the ram at 2.
    the viper at 3.
    the mustang at 2.
    the s2000 at 2.etc,etc.
    was there anyone in the damn line that didn't get repainted?
    actually,i would like to know --if i'm not mistaken only rumble and the 2nd ravage weren't,right?

    skids was never repainted. mirage didn't get repainted until he was just now an exclusive. prime was only repainted as an exclusive as well.
