    There's been a lot of questionable repaints over the course of the TF franchise, so I came up with a great game. Let's all list what we think the most ridiculous idea for a repaint is, something Hasbro or Takara would never do because of how absurd or stupid it is.

    So for me, the most ridiculous idea for a repaint I can think of is Hasbro releasing CW Prowl mold, exactly the same as the regular Prowl, but the only difference is that his eye is black to represent how he lost in in the comics.

    What can you guys come up with?

    Anything Shatturd Glass.

    Edited to add blue text because it's apparently necessary.

    "Now's my chance to insult this sect of fiction that people like! Mwahahaha!"

    I hope they make Shockwave a headmaster.

    Ridiculousness: CW Minibots. Brawl as Warpath, Swindle as Beachcomber, Breakdown as Cliffjumper, Silverbolt as Powerglide, and UW Strafe as cosmos?

    Crap, I forgot to use blue text.
    Because I was KIDDING.
    Sheesh.

    Edited.

    On topic- Constructicon-green Shockwave. I always liked that animation error.

    Do you remember when the initial resurgence of G1 re-issues was going on, we would ended up getting a ton of ridiculous repaints. Ah, those were the days...

    Back on topic. Hmmm. How about MP-20C, it's basically an all white Wheeljack to depict his pre-earth/cybertron form. I guess you'd have throw in a little bit of baby blue on the side panels to really depict it.

    It's not a repaint, but you could put out a version of Combiner Wars Devastator without Decepticon badges to demonstrate their time before the war. The deco would be exactly the same though. Haha.

    Crystal clear Jetfire to depict when he was stuck in ice?

    You could make "hate-plague" redeco's of everyone...

    Didn't Optimus and some Autobots disguise themselves as the Stunticons? You got those repaints right there.

    Anyone else still holding out hope for a repaint of Skullsmasher as the Alligaticon from City of Steel?

    I'd also take...
    a Hot Rod colored AOE Snarl
    a Dirge colored Universe 2.0 Cyclonus
    a Onslaught colored Universe 2.0 Starscream
    and a Kup colored CW Motormaster

    If you remember Five Faces of Darkness you'd know why.

    G2 ;) 

    I kid, I kid. I mean if you like those colors then good for you!

    I think there's enough ridiculous recolors out there already (FanPub stuff I'm staring at you). But off the top of my head, how about some repaint/remolds using colors usually reserved for My Little Pony, re-use female Transformer head molds, and populate the fembot universe a bit more? My daughter would be all over that, every single TF we play with she asks me "can we pretend it's a girl?" (yes, of course we can! - so currently Skullcruncher is a girl you guys, a girl crocodile that likes cookies and ice cream and hangs out with her friend Weirdwolf).

    TR Alpha Trion as Cybertron Vector Prime
    That upcomming TR Bumblebee as Bumper (though to be fair, ALL the Cliffjumpers beside Prime were basically Bumper)
    Titanmaster Clobber/Squeezeplay as Beast Wars Megatron

    .... actually these are plausible now that I think about it....

    In similar vein, I want to see Onslaught-Seeker and Dirge-Cyclonus.
