    Normally I am really not big on the same mold and character with a different color. At least the seekers had different characters after all, but it has happened that I just love the Movie Long Haul so much I just have to get the newer one that came out yellow. He just rocks on everything I like in a TF. In about a week or so that sucker will be mine :D

    I hear you there. There's been times I've loved a design enough to want to pick up the recoloured versions later on.

    I'm sure we two are not alone in this, who else has picked up a redeco on the strength of their appreciation for the first release?

    Same with me. Though I picked up the yellow Payload repaint because I had this truck as a kid:

    HFTD Payload is Long Haul in his G2 Constructicon colors to me, I don't call him Payload.

    The best repaint for me is RID Scourge. I think there were black repaints of Prime before him, but I'm pretty sure Scourge made it popular. I could be wrong though.

    I also love the tuner repaints of Mudflap and Skids.

    Acid Storm is my favorite Seeker repaint.

    Botcon Pyro, Sky-Byte, and the Sharkticons are other favorites of mine. Oh, and TCC SG Cyclonus.

    So far, the only Masterpiece seeker I have is Skywarp since I saw him at local WalMart for $30 bucks. I wish to get all of them including both USA white Starscream, and the so-called GreenScream, or the Takara version. Reason for me is, I consider the GreenScream AcidStorm and will rename him as such when I pick one up. I just wish I could some how change the name on the display base.
    Plus, next week I'll be getting the yellow G1 Sideswipe (Tigertrack) and soon after that, I plan on getting seeker repaint Sunstorm.
    Eventually, I hope to have most of the other repaints and original Diaclone colors.
