    Be it you just like the color combo more or you feel the new color scheme works as an awesome homage or better for the character or you just like the gaudy look of G2 repaints, which do you like more than the mold's original colorscheme?

    For me some one of the best examples of a repaint is Universe Ratbat. I never bought any Cybertron figures, they came out during the long period between collecting Beast Wars and jumping back on around the time the first movie line came out. I picked up the Ratbat vs Springer set, originally I think mostly for Springer, but it was Ratbat that became the star of the set for me. For one I just love the mold, it looks great, has cool weapons, nice alt mode, just an awesome, evil looking figure. But the colors are beautiful (love the purple used on him with the gold), and honestly those colors with the shape of the figure (especially in alt mode) are just perfect for Ratbat IMO.

    Universe Razorclaw (BW TM Tigerhawk repaint)

    I'm a sucker for black, purple, and silver, and the mold rocks.

    Botcon Flak. Love it far more than Cybertron Defense Scattorshot or the Universe repaints. Just a real nice figure to me.

    I prefer Generations Skullgrin to Generations Darkmount. And Shadow Commander to City Commander.

    Movie Hardtop (Cybertron repaint)
    Universe (2009) Roadbuster
    Energon Galvatron
    RiD Scourge
    About a hundred seeker jets that look nicer than the first Classics Starscream.

    TFU SE-04 Overkill, fits this mold better than it does Grimlock IMO.
    ROTF Bruticus Maximus over Energon/SL version.
    RID SkyBite over BW Cybershark.

    From the RotF line, I like the Dead End repaint over the original Sideways deco. The red on Sideways was a bit too bright.

    Beast Wars Walmart edition TM Rattrap, I love the colors on it more. Oddly the blue paint is holding up far better then the red paint on the regular TM Rattrap.
