    Is there a list somewhere? This isn't really like a looking at what Botcon molds are available, I'm just curious in general really. Let's say from the start of the AEC Trilogy. A Henkei/Japanese repaint of the mold (like with Animated currently) doesn't count as a single use, neither does something repainted for Botcon. Also obviously don't include molds so new that any repaints haven't been released or shown yet (eg Deluxe Ratchet)

    I'll start us off with a few...

    Energon Demolishor (the dump truck)
    Animated Waspinator
    Movie 2007 Payload
    Energon Grimlock and Swoop

    Aaaand go

    Animated probably has the most single use molds, but i'm surprised at the amount of repaints they were able to get in.

    Are we counting Henkei? Cuz if not, Octane (tankor) Galvatron, Dinobot, Cheetor, are a couple. If so, only one that i can think of off the top of my head is G1 Wheeljack. oh an computron/techobots.

    Incinerator's Japanese release was different to the Western release (in that it was mostly black)

    RiD Optimus and Magnus got re used several times (Various exclusive repaints and clear variants).

    I said in the OP that a Henkei repaint counts as another use

    Beast Wars Neo Dead End, Break, Longrack, Stampy, Heinlad, Mach Kick. All were only used within that series. Speaking of Beast Wars, most of the Fuzors and Transmetal IIs were used only once.

    Agreed on BWNeo moulds...but if limited to AEC, how about Energon Prime, Cyb Metroplex and Moledive? Did they have repaints?

    G1 Cindersaur was green in Japan.

    Sparkstalker, Flamefeather, Sizzle and Fizzle were repainted in G2.

    Skystalker, the car was black in Japan.

    Some of the best G2 molds were never repainted.

    Stormtroopers and Laser Rods.
