    On the heels of the classics repaint thread, I wanted to start a thread about obvious movie/rotf repaints that never happened.

    I'm not a huge fan of the movie toys in general, but I still don't understand why they never did a yellow sideswipe as a store exclusive sunstreaker, or a g1 repaint of skids as a store exclusive. Those both seemed obvious to me.

    Protoform Optimus Prime in Optimus Prime colours.

    I was taking a pic of all my Cybertronian Optimus figures, and it just bothered me that he doesn't fit in colourwise. It also seems like he'd sell a lot better in those colours.

    And then since they've been doing that new DOTM Prequel comic I've been thinking of it again. Just seems so obvious.

    i got a few.

    -Deluxe Barricade as Rapido (just Remove the police lights,replace the default head with the head based on one of the early concept art of barricade) any would do,but the Mechtech deluxe might do great on him.

    -Mechtech BB As Cliffjumper (HE HAVES THE BFG FOR GOD'S Sake! and a new head would be cool,especially if its the head from the unused BB Consept art.)

    -Any Ratchet as Movie Micron Ratchet (Armada Red Alert Homage) and Inferno (using the unused ratchet head)

    I got more,but let me get back at the thinking table.

    Oh yeah, and Protoform Seeker repaints too. My Starscream is okay, but the (few) GPS reports are a bit of a worry.

    Your Forgetin' Toxitron,he's a shoe in too.

    Also i thinking Rotf Brawn As Jipe would do well too,also a Recon Ironhide as "Oxide" works well for him,also a Repaint of Skystalker as Wind Sheer is nice to add (Especially if they include a repaint of Classics 2.0 sideswipe as Armada Wheeljack)

    Heck, yeah! I'm still scratching my head over the redeco'ed Sideswipe as Swerve when Tracks was such an obvious choice.

    TF1 Voyager class Movie Megatron as Straxus or Jhiaxus
    TF1 Landmine as Beachcomber
    ROTF Stratosphere as Jetfire

    Make mine blue corvette Tracks from Sidearm Sideswipe. It can sorta do the shoulder-rockets, plus it has a semi-decent version of a flying car mode.

    The movie Beachcomber we got (the Dunerunner repaint) was a 100 times better than repainting Landmine.

    Because the Scout dune mold is better then the landmine mold,or because the whole "Minibots should be Mini" Ordeal?

    Yeah,well if you count just the legends and deluxe figure.
    But yeah,Mechtech BFG BB would be a splendid Cliffjumper.

    I'd still like to see a 70's Camero Cliffjumper. I dig the older muscle car look, and I think CJ would look even better than BB as a classic car. The concept Camero is fine for BB, but I don't think it quite works for Cliffjumper.
