    Okay, I'm wondering what the total is for E-Hobby G1 repaints, and who are the characters that got the treatment?

    These are the ones I know of for sure:

    Sideswipe-Tigertrack and Deepcover
    Red Alert-Clampdown
    Ironhide-black Ironhide
    Ratchet-green Ratchet
    Omega Supreme-Blue Cybertron Guardian
    Blaster-Twincast
    Perceptor-Magnificus
    Starscream-Starscream's Ghost, Sunstorm, and Black Starscream
    Ravage and Laserbeak-Blue Ravage and Laserbeak
    Tracks-Red Traks and Black Tracks
    Silverstreak-Chrome plated
    Jazz-Gold plated
    Soundwave-Soundblaster ?
    Hound-Desert Hound

    Who else is there? Or is that basically it for G1 repaints? And no, I don't want Diaclone colors. Just E-Hobby jobs.

    Most of those *are* diaclone jobs, just retconned into being new Transformers characters. But anyway... Soundblaster was a regular release during the TF Collection reissues amazingly enough, not an e-hobby release.

    Desert Hound is really Detritus, a junkion.
    Skids was redeco'd into Crosscut.
    Blitzwing into Overcharge.
    The insecticons were redeco'd as well.
    Grapple into Roadhauler.
    Megatron into Megaplex.

    Uh... you know what? Here:

    Wow, that TFWiki always seems to come back and haunt me whenever I ask questions! LOL!
    Thank you, I forgot about the Insecticons. Reason I was asking, is I have three G1 E-Hobby repaints and just bought a fourth one "Desert-Hound" and wish to add more to the collection. So, I wanted to know exactly who was out there.
    Since most E-Hobbys were Diaclones, I wonder why they've never done a blue-Bluestreak, and red and cop-Sunstreaker. Those are ones I'd really like to get my hands on.

    Man... you have picked out an amazingly expensive pursuit. :lol  I wish you all the luck in the world in nabbing them all. I'd dearly love Fire Guts God Ginrai, Roadhauler, Deep Cover, and Clampdown myself.

    I was and still continue to be disappointed that e-hobby never went the painfully obvious route of putting out a blue-sided Bluestreak, but whaddya gonna do?

    Well, I'm trying to hound KOTOYS and company to produce the Blue Bluestreak. Now that we're getting FM from them, I hope Blue-Bluestreak is next. After all, they've already done the silver Bluestreak, now it's just a matter of "repainting" him in proper colors.

    I've already got three of the E-Hobby figures.
    Tigertrack, Sunstorm, and Black Rodimus. Just purchased my fourth today Desert-Hound at a reasonable price.
    Not sure who I'm going after next.
    I've already picked up a Macross figure, Max Jenius's VF as a repainted Jetfire. I plan on getting more shelves put up in my room and plan on having one bookcase dedicated to repaints. Jetfires brother will be part of that display.

    I think I'll probably get Twincast next as he seems to be reasonably priced so far. And his mold seems to have several different colors.

    I have Road Rage, Crosscut, and Tigertrack (who, by the way, was a magazine exclusive, not ehobby). I'm surprised we didn't get more ehobby cassettes. I'd get those in a second.

    I guess there's another question. Besides the E-Hobby repaints, how many magazine exclusive "repaints" of G1 figures were there?

    Yeah Tigertrack wasn't e-Hobby. There was the book exclusive Emergency Green Ratchet and the Green Skids & Screech 2 pack. These weren't magazines as really books. I think Tigertrack may be the only Magazine Exclusive G1 figure (there are a lot of modern figure magazine exclusives though).

    As for e-Hobby figures, I have the following.

    * Ironhide and Ratchet
    * Black Starscream and Ghost Starscream
    * Fire Guts God Ginrai
    * Gold chromed "Electrum" Meister/Jazz and "Anime" Streak/Bluestreak
    * Road Rage and Crosscut
    * Silver chromed Streak
    * Megaplex
    * Clamp Down and Deep Cover
    * Roadhauler and Sunstorm
    * Astrotrain in "prototype colors"
    * "Dimension Exploration Researchers" aka "Gobots"
    * Detritus
    * "Insectron Clone Army" (Zaptrap, Salvo, and Shothole)
    * Overcharge
    * "Cobalt Sentries" (Howlback and Garboil)
    * Magnificus with Ga'mede
    * Orion Pax & Dion
    * Twincast (reissue) with Flip Sides
    * Galvatron II
    * Laser Ultra Magnus
    * Ironhide "Protect Black"
    * GADEP
    * Clear "Rijie"/Ligier/Mirage (Binaltech)
    * Kiss Players Position (Rosanna, Sundor and Glit)
    * Masterpiece Convoy Black Version
    * Ultra Magnus Brilliant White Pearl (Alternity)
    * Black Convoy (Binaltech)
    * Convoy "clear version" (Henkei! Henkei!)
    * Stuntron Wildrider (Henkei! Henkei!) [or "Gentei! Gentei!"]
