    Nowadays, the only molds for repaints seem to be Bumblebees and Optimus Primes. But what are some molds only used once or twice that should be used again? My list would be:

    TF07 Incinerator
    TF07 Arcee
    Classics Prowl
    Generations Straxus
    The FE molds

    What molds do you want to be used again?

    Probably not a popular idea, but I'd love a repaint of DOTM Jolt. That mold deserves better colors.

    Maybe some of the later PCCs. Also I'd love different versions of the minicons from PCC. And US versions of the takara Prime minicons would be great.

    Warpath is a great figure, but I don't know how I'd feel about the mold being reused. The turret chest is sort of unique as far as I know so any other version of the mold would just look like a repainted Warpath to me...

    Hound, that mold is flipping brilliant, especially considering how old it is.

    Classics Hound redeco'd as Swindle. So why hasn't this happened yet exactly?

    classics hound made into swindle
    drift, generations red alert, WJ, and maybe the club sideburn molds for the stunticon limbs (not sure who'd be good for motormaster)
    WFC soundwave made into blaster, soundblaster, twincast, and slightly remolded into ironhide/ratchet
    and maybe someone for onslaught. not sure who yet

    RtS Lugnut. That's a gorgeous mold but I'm not sure who it could be repainted into.

    Yeah, we couldn't even guess what the alt head in the instructions was supposed to represent. I'd love to have a chance to pick that mold up.

    The most logical choice seems like it would be Ransack. Even if he's a small fighter and Lugnut is a giant bomber, they're both retro-style planes. And both have big gorilla arms. Plus, on the Lugnut mold it would also serve as an homage to his Animated version's color scheme.

    P.S. I love that Animated Tux in your avatar pic. Still one of my favorite Gobots, and a character I'd love to see cross into the TF universe.

    Anyhow, a few other molds I feel have more life left in them (even some AEC's):

    -Energon Scorponok: I'm shocked that this guy has never been released in G1 colors as Classics Scorponok, but I've finally given up hope of it ever happening
    -Cybertron Snarl as Carnivac
    -Classics Hound as Swindle, Rollbar (based on Alternator version) or Skids; people may disagree on that last one, but if you ignore the alt mode the robot mode has a fairly similar look. And I feel like otherwise we're unlikely to get a Classics Skids anytime soon.
    -Classics Seeker mold and Classics Wreck-Gar in a 2-pack, as Leader-1 vs. Cy-Kill
    -Classics Windcharger as Trip-Up, Tailgate, Rook, or Decepticharge
    -HFTD Hubcap as Hubs or Super Couper (dual Big Daddy homage)
    -Prime Cliffjumper (either one) as Tap-Out
    -Classics Powerglide with remolded head as Dai Atlas (they both have the big sloping intakes on the side of their chests)
