    Well with the completion of my primary Repaint hunt of Transformers I've been looking for I wonder how many of my fellow collectors hunt for repaints of a figure?

    I also wonder if any of you like to have the original figure next to their Repaints,that makes me wonder what character is the most repainted figure out there.

    In regards to Cl/Uni2.0, I get the repaints that suit the G1 figures. Like Prowl, Bluestreak, & Smokescreen (when it comes out), or the Seekers/Coneheads.

    Other then that, not really, unless I'm going to make other use of it. Like my taking someone's idea to turn Fracture into Arcee.

    If it's G1 related, I'll pick it up. The Seekers are the primary targets of any line (reissues, Classics, Animated). Prowl/Silverstreak/Smokescreen, same with Prime/Magnus/Nemesis Prime, Sideswipe/Sunstreaker (even if each version isn't exactly the same mold), Ironhide/Ratchet, Inferno/Grapple and Bumblebee/Cliffjumper. I'm not as big on Hoist and Trailbreaker but I've preordered the reissues; I've also picked up Classics Dragstrip and will pick up Classics Mirage later.

    I'll be rearranging how I display my collection every few months, so sometimes repaints of each individual figure will be together. Other times, it'll be more by line and then they'll be more spread out.

    I own 27 repaints, I counted figures that I know are repaints of other figures.

    I don't own any repaints of figures I already had the mold of.

    However, I do own a few molds that are repaints of other molds.

    Alternators Rollbar
    Universe Springer
    Universe Ratbat

    I tend to get obsessed with favourite moulds, so I have a few. For example, I am not a line completist so I don't have Cyb Crumplezone, but at one stage I had both Ransacks and Japanese police Gasket.
    I am not sure about the exact number, but the repaints percentage in my TF collection should be quite high.

    That reminds me, I need U Ratbat...

    i love repaints! I am getting Shadow Blade Megatron and RB ULtra Magnus because they look so much better. And I will get the inevitable Cyclonus repaint, and Atomic Lugnut.

    I try not to go the repaint route, unless the repaint is either meant to be another character, like Silverstreak or Thundercracker. I just go for either the easiest to get, or the best colored one.

    Right now, I have Acid Storm, Bluestreak, Tigatron, and most of the G1 repaints, like Red Alert, Smokescreen, and the seekers.

    Planning on getting Animated Skywarp, but thats a big maybe, since Im not the biggest fan of the animated seeker mold, and I already have Starscream.

    I'd have go home and count, but I've got plenty. My favorites are the G1 Seekers and Combaticons, though. Right now I've got my G2 Bruticus out next to my G1 Onslaught, Swindle and Brawl, and my R.I.D. Swindle.

    Yep. Right there.

    Some repaints rule, some less so. I think Hasbro has been doing a much better job with repaints lately. I'm a total sucker for a G1 Homage too. Oh well.

    I honestly try to avoid repaints. I have a few, but mainly from TF:A since I want to be a completist with that line.
    The Classics and Universe repaints don't appeal to me for some reason. I just don't think throwing different paint on a so-so figure and giving it a G1 name isn't reason enough for me to buy it.
    Some, on the other hand, are worth it. I missed Jetfire the first time around, so Treadbolt was a good purchase for me.

    To each his own. For every repaint I avoid, that's just one more for another collector to pick up that'll appreciate it more.

    I've got a few:

    G1 Bumblebee/Cliffjumper
    G1 Tailgate/Windcharger
    G1 micromasters (Hot House, Iron Works, Airwave, Greasepit: don't remember who these guys are repaints of specifically)
    Star Saber/ Dark Saber/ Energon Saber
    Energon combiner limbs (Superion/ Constructicon Maximus)
    Classics Starscream/ Ramjet
    Universe 2.0 Prowl/ Silverstreak
    Universe 2.0 Sideswipe/ Sunstreaker

    I try not to buy repaints unless they have been remolded or don't cost that much. I'm probably going to bite on the club combiner limbs though :p
