    So, I've really been enjoying my Wal-mart Divebomb figure. Now, I hated that mold when I picked up Cybertron Thundercracker and I passed on Cybertron Skywarp because of that. But then I realized the mold itself doesn't suck. It just SUCKS as Thundercracker or Skywarp. As a new character I rather enjoy it!

    So, what other molds would you like to see repainted into NEW characters?

    Right off the top of my head, Voyager Cybertron Starscream. I love that mold, but classics Starscream is the badass. And I'm not stoked for the Dirge repaint either.

    I love homages as the next Geewunner, but I like new characters too!

    I'd rather repaints be used as new or obscure characters; if it's somebody who is likely to get a new mold, then just wait till they can get that new mold.

    G2 Dreadwing and Smokescreen. Because it's about time they got another repaint. Maybe this time with like new heads or something.

    I personally would rather see new molds for new characters.

    There's a few really nice molds that should have been repainted, either bring back one-shot characters like they did for the red/black/silver Swerve or give us someone new that brings out the figure better.

    Figures needing a repaint into a former character...
    Energon Sharkticon into RID Nightcruz or Sky-byte
    Movie Stockade into RID X-Brawn
    Movie Bonecrusher into RID Slapper
    Energon Inferno into Hot Spot
    Cybertron Scattorshot (Scout) into Warpath
    Cybertron Buzzsaw into Waspinator

    And for figures that deserve a repaint period... I'm a big fan of Brimstone, Energon Roadblock, Cybertron Dirt Boss, Energon Slugslinger, and Energon Tow-Line. None got a mass retail repaint but they were good figures with plenty of homage and original potential.

    Different Characters outta cool bots?

    Hmm..

    I want to see Steeljaw out of the Jagquar Ravage Alternater, just change the head sculpt by adding a mane...turn it gold/ylw, and voila! Be Awesome!!

    Hmm...who else...Oh!...

    Cybertron Starscream(as previously mentioned)
    into TCracker and Skywarp...I mean, come on ,energon had acouple, but this mold deserves it!! You gotta have the Original 3 every series!!

    It's 2 am, so mind is goin blank, if I think of more..I write em down. but I LOVE my STEELJAW idea.

    G.A.P.

    Those are sweet molds. Exactly what I'm talking about. They don't have to be homages, I'd welcome them, but new characters are much more welcome in my opinion. For example, I'm really excited for Fracture. While a Go-Bot homage, she is still technically a new character in Transformers. I dig on that.

    I still want them to repaint Cybertron Defense Scattorshot. Dropshit doesn't count, I'm still waiting for a good repaint of that mold.

    I wanted them to repaint Cybertron Sideways & we're getting a kickass Ratbat!:rock 

    My other choice is Cybertron Menasor. That's one of my favorite molds, I can't wait for them to repaint him. I just hope they do a good job unlike Dropslop.

    Cybertron Metroplex needs a repaint but instead of the huge Spark Drinker axe thing, they should do something different like giant missile launchers & make him some kind of battle station.

    I think Cybertron Metroplex should get a Decepticon repaint; something close to a Metro-Titan scheme.

    Molds I'd like to see repainted into brand-new characters? Hmm, let's see.....

    1. Classics Jetfire: I want to see him in a DARK scheme, molded in DARK plastic, since Jetfire and Dreadwind are both bone-white. A deep blue, black, purple or red Jetfire would feel like a completely different toy. (bonus points if they painted him up like a Macross/Robotech jet)
    2. Classics 2-pack Megatron: aside from the spinny-arm, he's really not a bad figure. I wouldn't mind seeing a differently-colored version of him.
    3. Classics Ramjet: I'm happy we're getting Acid Storm as a generic Seeker... I'd also dig another generic Seeker made from the conehead mold
    4. Movie Landmine: such a great figure... I'd love one in brown, black, or tan as a new character

    I'd like to see Thunderblast retooled into Elita-1 like in the Games of Deception comic. Its better than no Elita-1 at all.

    TM 2 Dinobot as some sort of Predator-type character (Sparkstalker?)
    BM Tankor in cartoon colors with cartoon head and shoulder cannon
    maybe some unreleased molds (that rumored deluxe Obsidian from Battle For the Spark)
    TM 2 Jawbreaker as Fangray
    Energon Megatron as Thunderwing
    Spyshot as Reflector
    Shockblast as Shockwave (maybe with an actual hand and a new gun arm)
    BM Thrust as Cy-Kill (that's funny)
    Energon Skorpinok in G1 colors
