Repaint. Almost immediately, that word sends shivers up a fan's spine, and images of garish repaints that use horribly varying and visually unpleasing colorschemes, or just simply ones that don't make any sense whatsoever, or ones that were nice in concept but have a horrible execution. Either that, or you have decent if standard repaints, or even those who somehow manage to be garish, yet surprisingly cool! But there also those repaints that go beyond ordinary repaints. Repaints that do everything right, repaints that are so damn awesome that they make an initially crappy looking figure worth getting, or repaints that make an already cool figure ascend into god-tier levels of cool. They may be rare and inbetween, but who are very much real. My question to you, my friends, is this: What are your absolutely most favorite repaints? Which ones just do it for you, and which ones are recognized as unquestionably awesome? Post them, with pics if you can, and bonus points if they're cool looking! Remolds and Takara repaints (Henkei) are allowed, but let's try and keep it to normal ones, okay? And customs will most definately not count, not being commonly commercially available and all. I'll start us off. A stunning repaint. The use of black really makes him look stealthy, with the purple both being gorgeous and blending in with the black when it's even close to the shadows. Pictures will never do this one justice. I got the first movie Starscream, and I HATED it. The colors were uninteresting and bland, the plastic felt weak for some reason, and it really didn't bring out the strong points of the toy. But then this came along. At first I was hesitant, recalling my horrible experiences with the original, but for 15 bucks I figured "eh, what the hell". I have never regretted that decision. Various shades of grey and silver, all rich, and all working together perfectly to make it pop out. And it even has enough smaller detailing to make one say 'WOW'! I completely turned around on the figure because of the colorscheme, and it is thé perfect example of how to make a figure look better with an excellent paintjob. An odd choice, but I am almost afraid no-one would mention this. I owned Master Megatron, but while it was a nice figure, it never really did it for me, one of the reasons why I ended up selling it. Mostly at fault were the simply weird colors that it had; ranging from grey to lila, from orange to clear blue, from green to black...It was somewhat of a mess, an oddly appealing mess, but still. But then this guy came along. It traded the garish colors for a stunning silver/black/red colorscheme that was incredibly appealing and popped out immediately. Hower, the best part was the silver paint. It's the same as on Deep Space Starscream, but as far as I am aware this is the first figure that used it, at least to this extent. It was the first real replacement for chrome; just as appealing, shiny without being obnoxious, yet durable and hard to scrape. It felt classy, it felt expensive, and it's something that should be used more on figures! I think the silver is the main reason why I like this guy; the black and red really work together to make this guy visually interesting, but there's just something about that silver... Those are just some off the top of my hat. Now, what are the repaints that YOU love?
