    Hahahahahahahahahaha.

    That was good. I dont mind repaints if they are legit characters like Universe Sideswipe as Red Alert or Universe Prowl as Silverstreak and Smokescreen etc.

    Brighter red, brighter blue, brighter grey. It's a repaint.

    And how is reissue better than repaint? A repaint gives you something new. A reissue gives you the exact same thing.

    Pretty funny, man :D 

    OG Prime was darker red, darker blue, darker grey, longer smokestacks.

    I dig repaints. Hell, look at G1, A good portion of it was repaints:

    Prowl, Silverstreak, 'Clown-racing-Nissan'; all the same mold.
    Prime, Ultra Magnus: same mold (diifferent trailers, blah, blah, don't ruin this for me)
    Starscream, Thundercracker, Skywarp, Ramjet, Thrust, Dirge: (diff wings on three)
    Frenzy/Rumble
    Trailbreaker/Hoist
    Ironhide/Ratchet

    G2, nuff said

    Machine Wars

    over half of RiD

    Repaints are an unaviodable side effect. Consider it a necessary evil. I consider it awesomesauce as I can't tell you how many times I've seen a good mold squandered on crappy colors in it's first run. Not to mention I prefer to buy multiples of good molds and repaints allows me to do so without actually buying the same character. But to each his own.

    ya i like the seeker repaints, things like that are good. BUT I CAN'T STAND IT when they do dumb crap like atomic lugnut or stealth lockdown, or bandit lockdown, or blazing lockdown!!!!! those don't even exist!! that is what im talking about in this vid, probably didn't stress that enough.
    thanks for watching!!!

    Those types of repaints exist to give more people a chance to own that particular mold. It would be mad stupid of them to offer the same toy all year long. Think of how tiring it would be to see the same toys on the shelves and pegs for 10 months out of the year. Not only that but those types of repaints are another chance for people to own a killer toy with a better (sometimes worse) paint job. I'll pass up on a mold if the colors suck and more often than not get the chance to buy the cool version IE: Stealth Lockdown. Though admitedly, in this case, I already own the original figure.

    BTW: I spent the past two days hunting (unsuccessfully) for a figure that you passed up on in your video.

    ME: "NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!" LOL
