    So as I was watching this new eBay auction for the elite guard bumblebee I pondered if I should even mess with the repaints ( excluding seekers ), Is anyone here going to buy repainted animated, lets hope they don't go overboard and ruin the line or our wallets by doing so!

    As long as they make all the characters that need to made then I don't care how many repaints they produce. It's not like I'd buy them all.

    i still plan to buy them by the wave so i'll get them if they're new characters for sure, or look different enough to be called some one else, like elite bumblebee looks so much different from his other version that one could say that he IS a different character if they wanted to, like i plan to call him goldbug :)

    I am going to try to limit myself only to repaints that are specifically designated as new characters. Gotta cut costs somewhere, and I don't really need multiple versions of the same character crowding up the shelves. But if it's a new character with a new name, it's as good as bought.

    Actually, it'll be interesting to see how many "new character" repaints they can really get out of this line. It doesn't seem to lend itself to it as much as others, maybe because the characters each have such specific personalities in their face sculpts. I think most would require a head remold to feel like new characters (i.e. Ratchet in red would just feel like red Ratchet, not Ironhide.... not without a head remold). And it's hard to imagine Bulkhead as a new character, unless that new character is specifically stated to be his twin brother or something. Although I suppose...

    <SOMEWHAT MINOR "AUTOBOOT CAMP" SPOILER ALERT!!!!>

    they have already established that in the Animated universe, some characters (like Wasp and Bumblebee) share protoform molds, and thus look very similar, physically.

    <END SPOILER!!!!>

    Anyway, I think we can at least confidently say that there is one common repaint that this line probably WON'T contain: the ubiquitous Albino Prime Ultra Magnus. :)

    Lets see...

    Nemesis Prime
    Neutral Constructicons
    Ironhide
    Longarm (If they can't put that on the Shockwave toy)
    Omega Sentinel
    Wasp
    Lockdown's Repaint
    The Clones (I know Skywarp will be a voyager and TC an Activator. Perhaps TC is too close of a color scheme for Starscream. G1 repaint?)
    G1 Prowl
    Soundblaster
    Cliffjumper
    Rodimus Prime (Blurr repaint?)

    There are a lot of possibilities here.

    i'd rather have rodimus his own mold, but it would be nice to some how have a kup too in there.

    maybe jazz could be repainted as g1 prowl? or if not prowl, smokescreen?
    i don't think we need an evil prime i think that's been done to death more then unicron.

    but the omega sentinel sounds cool

    maybe, kup could be a remold/repaint of sentinel prime?

    Unless they're Seeker repaints.

    Though I want to see the female Starscream as a new mold Deluxe.

    Here are some repaints/retools (basically only a new head/face for retooling) that I wouldn't mind seeing-

    -Kup- from Cybertronian Optimus Prime (new head
    -Elite Guard Optimus Prime- from the 2-pack Deluxe
    -Magnus- from Cybertronian Optimus Prime (his younger self, new head)
    -Ironhide- from Ratchet (new head)
    -Rodimus- from Blurr (new head)
    -Ramjet- from Voyager Starscream
    -Omega Sentinel- from any Omega Supreme toy we may be getting
    -Skyfire- Either from Jetfire or V. Starscream (new head either way)

    The thing is, repaints are going to happen wether you like it or not. Not saying you have to like them or buy them, just that it's something that's going to happen one way or the other.

    Basically he was the closest thing to an on-screen version of Jetfire for G1. I personally consider them two separate characters (like it was origionaly planned for G1's show). Just noticed I misspelled his name too, lol (I'll go edit the e out of my other post).

    What's up with everyone saying Rodimus?
    Didn't they say they wanted to work him in as an actual character?

    Also, I'll buy a toy of a character I already have if it's different enough.
    Like if it's a completely different mold or what they're doing with Prowl and Lockdown.

    I would buy that, although the only thing I can picture is Magnus's current head on top of Cybertron mode Optimus. Which looks a little creepy.

    I'm torn on the Seeker repaints...so there are five other than SS himself...so if Hasbro makes all five (which is doubtful) that's $100 worth...if they only do two of them (most likely) probably the female and Yellow versions do you purchase them and call it good or buy extra of the mold for customs...:banghead: 


    All I know is Wasp better be released...and if it's just a BB repaint he'd better get a new head...(same goes for Cliffjumper)...

    I'll do what I always do: buy stuff that I like. If it's a repaint and it looks good, I'll buy it.
