    Like the title says, are there any re-colors of old molds you think look better then the original?

    For me, it's Cybertron Defense Red Alert as Countdown.

    And Cyb Defense Hot Shot as Springer.

    My two favorite repaints ever are Classics Ratchet and Bluestreak. Both took molds that I thought were fairly lackluster and - through nothing more than paint - made them into two of my favorite figures from the whole line.

    I have long thought the Armada colors for Airrazor were better than the BW Transmetal version.

    Also, Universe Obsidian that came in a 2-pack with Tankor.
