    Hi, I was just thinking of some transformers that I would like to have with different colors. The first one I thought of is Ratchet. I would have preffered him to be red in white contrary to the yellow or green.

    I actually like movie Ratchet in green and yellow/white. All the G1 homage repaints of his toy look weird to me.

    Yeah, I am not a big fan of G1 colors either, I just preffer these colors for Ratchet.

    Would have been nice, but wasn't completely necessary. Honestly, I liked Ratchet in green (and, in turn, Ironhide in black), because it helped differentiate them. If every Autobot from the first movie had been in G1 colors, it pretty much would have been a sea of red and white.

    I have no design complaints, except the flames on Optimus never fit his character. inb4 WUT IS DIS 2007?/????!?!!?!?!!?!?!?!?!!!!11

    Yeah I prefer the red and white because it differentiates him a little more from the other Autobots. If I had to change the colors of another Autobot, it would be Sideswipe just to make sure that Hasbro stops making entirely grey plastic figures.

    Interesting thoughts. I like Ratchet's movie colors but the red sounds better. I haven't watched much of TF Prime but isn't he orange and white in that one?

    I also think I would like to add some kind of flare to Sideswipe. His personality makes me want to add like a metallic blue, but Bayverse wouldn't let him have any lines! Isn't that right? I heard he doesn't let blue cars/transformers have lines...? :lol

    Agreed. I always thought the pea green / yellow scheme that progressively got worse and more neon from movie to movie looked awful.

    I would have liked some red on Ironhide if for nothing else than a very subtle homage - maybe just visible in bot mode.

    Soundwave would have looked better in a deep metallic dark blue imo - again, also being a nice homage.

    All the Constructicons being the same color as Long Haul would have been preferred too. I thought the green scheme looked awesome on Long Haul and would have translated nicely to the others as well.

    And obviously I would have preferred Sideswipe to be the bright red color that Dino ended up getting. And not just because he was red in G1 - mainly because we just had a silver sports car in Jazz from TF1. Felt rehashed imo.

    I used to prefer to have toys of Movie characters in G1 colors, back when I had only one collection that combined Classics and Movie, but now I have two separate collections, and at least for the most part, I prefer to have Movie figures in Movie colors.

    I am one of the few I know who vastly prefers his first color scheme over his DOTM one. I have warmed up to it however, as I am now pretty "meh" about it, when originally I downright hated it.

    I originally didn't care for Ratchet's darker color scheme in DOTM, but it's likely because I was used to normal yellow Ratchet. It does, however, make him stand out from Bumblebee. It grew on me a little, but I ultimately can't completely bring myself to throw out the 2007-ROTF color scheme for Ratchet.

    Movie Ratchet looks strange in pure G1 white and red. I did like how his DOTM toy looked in reversed red and white (Red Alert) colors, but I wouldn't care for it in the films.

    I like Ironhide in black. He looks badass. Prime's flames I don't even notice. Soundwave, however, I think would look kinda cool in G1 colors (blue and some yellow and red), but I'm not losing sleep if he doesn't have them.

    Don't like Ratchet's change in DOTM as much either. But I can't say I hate it. I'm just rather "meh" about it.

    Ironhide and Sideswipe are perfect the way they are and are two of the best movie designs. No red is necessary.

    As someone earlier mentioned, Soundwave in dark blue would have been cool. It would have broken up the gray of the Decepticons. They suffer from "sameness" more than the Autobots do.

    I like Ratchets colors better in G1, Animated, and Transformers Prime so some mix of white and red would have been nice.

    I agree with Silk Spectre that Soundwave could have used a more traditional dark blue because it would have added some badly needed color to the rather blah color pallet of the Decepticons.

    With Jazz, Sideswipe, and Sideways being all silver cars, and Megatron, Starscream, Shockwave, Barricade, the Dreads, the Driller, Laserbeak, the Protoforms/Generics, and the ships all being neutral/metallic, I really wish Soundwave had some color. Don't care if it's based on G1 or not, just give him some visual interest beyond "cool car."

    By the end of the trilogy, a blood-splatter pattern would have made more sense than the flames.

    As for Ratchet, the Specialist toy looks pretty good as red with white, but overall the movie colors are fine as they are.

    Throughout the entire series, my only color gripe was with Starscream. I think if he had a few splashes of color it would have made him look a bit more distinctive. The tattoos were interesting, but I'd have preferred them as they were int eh comics, as being scratched in rahter than look like applications.

    Would it have been so hard to get a blue Mercedies for Soundwave? Would it?

    I still wonder how some people can't figure out who's on-screen. Really people? Really?
