    I they can do a repaint for Bumblebee in red and call it Cliffjumper do you think they should repaint Sideswipe and call him Sunstreaker? If they do I'm thinking of a nice gold color, because yellow isn't a good color for a Chevrolet Corvette Centennial Concept.

    Actually, I think yellow would be perfect. Especially since Chevrolet loves their brand of yellow. Gold would work too though.

    If the mold is cool I'd like to see it in other colors as well. **loves re-paints**

    Blue alt mode, red face, white head, and flaming wing emblem on the hood.

    It's a freaking 'vette, and a sexy one at that. They have to make a Tracks repaint.

    I say tracks repaint. I would like to see some dodge for sunstreaker (deluxe viper like the alt) or at least something a little different then sideswipe

    I wonder if Hasbro would want to avoid any confusion with Bumblebee (yellow or golden yellow or whatever color he is) and go with a gold repaint for Sunstreaker. It may not be a direct G1 adaptation of Sunstreaker, but then again Movie Thundercracker wasn't the rich blue he is in many figures (more of a pale blue similar to Takara's MP Starscream or Animated Starscream).

    I'm actually hoping for a store exclusive G1 red Sideswipe. Tracks might be cool but I could get behind a Sunstreaker repaint too

    A red Sideswipe wouldn't surprise me at all, considering we've received G1 repaints of Starscream, Jazz and Ratchet (though we never got a red Ironhide for some reason).

    No, they should paint him black, yellow, and white and call him Wheeljack.

    I think it's because red doesn't suit the mold. I saw a picture of a red-painted movie ironhide and I think it was pretty fugly.

    I say, Blue tracks and Yellow sunstreaker... not gold... but streaming yellow. Not that bumblebee camaro yellow, something more like the classic version color

    Just a G1 accurate red Sideswipe would be fine for me.

    Yeah, I like this figure, but I want to see what color they repaint him as before I get one. Candy apple red and gold would be my first choices (gotta have both twins please) but the Tranks blue is very tempting too.

    THIS = EPIC WIN...

    that's exactly what i want to see...and if that happens, this'll be the only movie mold i buy more then one of...in fact, i'd probably buy one to open and put on my tracks shelf, and one to keep sealed...
