    Hadn't seen anyone try this so, I figured what the heck.

    Let me say right off, I love them like they are. I love that we're even getting them, and they are BOUGHT the instant I see them. The new colors are fine.

    But, I'm also a hardcore G1 fan, and I had the original of all these guys (save Impactor of course) as a kid and I mostly just wanted to see how these new toys would look in the classic colors.

    These are quick, messy, and easy. Just enough recoloring to see how they'd look. So here we go:

    Top Spin and Twin Twist

    Not bad. I MIGHT try painting them myself. If I feel brave...

    Now for the Deluxe Autobots

    About halfway through Whirl, I thought it was gonna look terrible but in the end I think I like it. The red eye helped loads. Roadbuster looks good too, but was a lot of work even in photoshop. You'd probably need a Botcon boxset type budget to pull off those colors.


    -ZacWilliam, would seriously buy a G1 Box set of these guys in classic colors, even if I bought all the regular releases. Doubt they'd do something that close to retail though. :p

    Roadbuster looks so much better! The others do too, but Roadbuster is the only one of these characters who I think actually fits the mold they chose. If Roadbuster looked like that, I might consider getting him.

    Those look pretty good. I'd buy those if they were released at retail.

    Y'know, seeing Roadnuster's layout and head liek this, I can't help but think he'd make a great Chromedome.

    Whirl and Roadbuster look good, but I can't help but feel that the swindle mould would work far far better as Ironfist.

    Here's a Quick and dirty Impactor, just done the head and chest

    Finally this thread happens!

    I think Roadbuster is fine as is, Twin Twist and Top Spin i'd love to see as is, with the Oranger replaced with White, Impactor I can learn to love..... It's WHIRL that is out of control inacuurate.

    Really I hope we can all sound reasonable enough to convey to Hasbro that...."We like these toys...But We'd like to see the colors adjusted"
