    Here's the deal..

    Take a figure and what would you repaint it as?
    What would you like to see?
    I would like to take RiD Optimus Prime and retool it as G1 Grapple. Anyone else got any ideas?

    No. More. Repaints.
    Ever.
    We miss out on so much of each line here as it is, without ending up getting all the crappyass repaints that the lines are padded out with.

    E-Hobby reflector (Anime Colors)

    I want Gen. One Reflector to be reissued as it was originally released. Also I would like to see an Reflector E-Hobby release...... just retool their heads and paint them all in the same Anime like colors. It worked well with Galvatron.

    Tekkaman Blade, excellent work. I hope that Takara and Hasbro are paying attention. At least with the G1 Blaster repaint of Soundwave.

    Omnibus Prime, I second that notion. I want a G1 paintjob on Laser Prime. G1 Prime is the man!

    Oh and one more thing, an airwolf repaint/retool of Cybertron Evac.

    I'd like to see the original 6 Spychangers repainted into black and silver Ninja jobs. Not totally the same, just similar enough so you know these guys are all from the same Ninja team. And have a black rub sign on them (like the Japanese CR ones) hidden on a black part of the car.

    Couple that with a retool with magnets (so you can drive them on metal walls) and you're away. Having said that, I've already retooled my Spychanger doubles with Neodynium magnets, so it can be done!

    I was thinking Energon Omega Supreme, with an extra head/minicon painted up to be Overlord, with the two minicons for mega and giga. Either Mega or Giga can become the head and the other Minicon hangs out elsewhere in the bot in robot mode.

    E megatron retooled and repainted as thunderwing
    E starscream as sunstorm
    C Starscream as sunstorm
    A starscream/skywarp as the Cone heads
    A wheeljack as g1 sideswipe
    C long rack with minicon and a new key as a new giant planet TF.
    E shockblast either as shock wave for Cybertron or heavy remold as another arm bot for megatron/prime.
    A demolisher as quake.

    With all of these except E starscream they could take a cyber planet key so as to fit in the cybertron line.

    I love the G1 homage repaints... the seeker repaints, U. Tankor as Bludgeon, Jetstorm as U. Skywarp... C. Sky Shadow has Blitzwing's colors, but it's not enough of a likeness for me to consider him as a Blitzwing homage. Maybe if the face was re-molded...

    I would love to see BW Insecticon repainted as Shrapnel, E Insecticon repainted as Bombshell, or give E Divebomb his classic G1 colors

    Now that think about it, Nemesis Breaker would look good in G1 Razorclaw colors... hmm... *pulls paint supplies out*

    Cyb Prime, with a remolded head, (different helmet, lose the broken nose bandages, and change the faceplate) maybe remold the guns a little, painted in a dark camo scheme. (black camo patterns over olive drab, or dark gray) Give him Decepticon insignias, and call him Motormaster. (or Mortarmaster, with that artillery)

    This would also work painted in arctic camo as Ultra Magnus.

    I normally don't like repaints but I'd like to see Cybertron Backstop in BW Rhinox colors and Energon Scorponok in Black Zarak colors. Dark Scorponok just doesn't cut it for me.

    I'd like to see Thunderblast repainted as Elita-1. Also the smaller Cybertron Starscream in regular colors and repainted as Thundercracker(even though there already is one in Cybertron) and Skywarp. I know people are sick of them, but I still want to see a black C Prime repaint weather it be motormaster or Nemesis Prime or Scourge doesn't matter. I like the evil clone repaints. Vector Prime would make a good Alpha Trion. I'd like to see an official Ginrai made out of Evac or give him some other Prime name.

    Other than Cybertron repaints I too would like to see Laser Prime in G1 colors. The same thing with G2 Hero Prime and Megs as well. Maybe also a silver version of Dreadwing and Smokejumper.

    Most of my redecos come to pass...
    ...tho Im kicking myself for not being able to get Armada Prowl (Red Alert Sam's Club only Police color) and either Omega Sentinel or Omega Supreme. As well as Energon Quickstrike, and renaming him SMOKESCREEN. Along with naming the Paradron Medic NIGHTENGALE just because ever since the civil war thats what field nurses are.

    *C Thunderblast repaint to Coast Guard paint scheme and call her WAVES (Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service) Since WWII for female sailors.
    *C Evac to Coast Guard colors and call him RES-Q
    *C Shortround as Fire boat colors and calling him Cascade.
    *Either RID or C: Prime redeco him as a Heavy Rescue or just make him like the one up in the corner.
