    Let's give the Big H some ideas for repaints, even though they probably already had this well planned out a year ago.

    We would want something that could be attractive enough to buy a figure again, and something that would sell well for reasons of said attractiveness due to possible homages (Generation One, etc.), references to past repaints (Nemesis Prime type repaints), colors that work well with combined forms (Jet-Prime), and/or another whack at taking the original figure and making a better one (Premiums).

    What would you want for ROTF Leader-Class Repaints?

    Hasbro's gotta make money from those new molds somehow and one figure per mold isn't going to cut it.

    [!]*For "Other" please specify what figure you would want and how it would be repainted. This should count for movie 1 Leader-Class repainted toys, as I could not fit them into the poll.

    [!]*"Ultra Magnus colors" stands for BOTH Generation One "Armored" and "Unarmored" colors.

    [!]*"Nightwatch colors" stands for BOTH Movie 1 "Nightwatch" and "Nemesis Prime" colors.

    Figure choices:

    Movie 1 Leader-Class:

    -Optimus Prime
    -Megatron
    -Brawl

    Movie 2 Leader-Class:

    -Optimus Prime
    -Megatron
    -Jetfire
    -Starscream

    Vote & Discuss.

    They usually don't repaint Megatron (unless they do a Premium style thing, which has already been effectively ruled out).

    I'd like prime in Rodimus colours (maybe a new head?), or a re release of Prime and Jetfire in Ultra Magnus homage colours (Prime as mainly white with blue accents, Jetfire as red and blue)

    prime will probably be premiumed again for ROTF but he'll be the Buster Prime but that's just my hunch

    I'd say Opimus as Nemesis Prime. Black and teal, new head, new blades.

    Basically that could count as Nightwatch.

    Yeah, but have the blades real wicked and looking freaky. Then have a better, differant head, something really scary. His truck mode could have black pinstriped flames and Decepticon symbols. Maybe a lisence plate the reads "NemsisPrime"

    That would be truly a good figure!

    Considering we see new heads on repaints to make them sell better more and more these days, I'd say that is now a possibility.

    I voted for all of them. They're all great ideas!

    If I had to pick which I would want most, it would definitely be a Premium Megatron with new arms. If there was ever a figure that needed some remodeling, it's that one.

    I guess the closest would be Nemesis Prime, but I hope they repaint Optimus Prime in black-and-red so that he'd fit in with Jetfire color-wise.

    I voted almost for everyone but I would prefer a G2 Megs paint scheme.

    I'd love to see Leader Prime repainted into Ultra Magnus.

    I might consider buying an RotF Leader Skywarp, but otherwise, none of the above. Leaders are too expensive to be buying repaints.

    I'd probably only buy a Nemesis Prime or a Skywarp/Thundercracker repaint to beef up my Decepticons a bit more. If its the same character, but in that "all spark powered" light blue again, it's a big pass.

    With the arch enemy theme Hasbro has going on, I wonder if we might see a reworked Jetfire paired off against Starscream. Classic Jetfire colors might be cool on such a repaint, but I think a Generation 2 Jetfire urban camo design might work better.

    Of course, that would then go ahead and work very well with a white "polar mission" / Ultra Magnus repaint of Optimus Prime in their combined form.

    I won't go into all my choices, but I will say I'd prefer Starscream Premium to have his tattoos. He had them in the movie so why not the toy?
