    I was just going through my AEC collection, and was thinking that they must have repainted every mold at least once... Which actually isn't true. There's several that haven't been repainted or retooled. So see if I missed anything.... Note: This does NOT count the difference between the US and JPN colors of the same figure.

    ARMADA: I think Laserbeak is the only Armada toy to not ever have a repaint, though he's more of a "role play" item.

    ENERGON: Leader Optimus Prime, Demolishor, Sharkticon, Alpha Q, Wing Saber, Grimlock & Swoop.

    CYBERTRON: Backstop, Scattorshot, Wreckloose, Brimstone, Dirt Boss, Unicron, Menasor, Metroplex, Primus, Supreme Starscream.


    Did I miss anything?

    In Energon there was the Grimlock and Swoop molds that have yet to be repainted.

    AND DARN YOU HASBRO FOR NOT REPAINTING SHARKTICON! I might not have my four Sharkticons if you had!

    Well technically Towline has been repainted, as Botcon exclusives Ironhide and Ratchet. Although I guess he hasn't had a wide-release repaint. You could probably count Cybertron Snarl and Energon Slugslinger in that category as well. Snarl's repaint was a Botcon exclusive too, and Airazor was a Collector's Club exclusive figure.

    Supreme Starscream hasn't been repainted.

    *If* limited edition/exclusive repaints are counted, then Energon Deluxe Prime had that "Fire Guts" repaint

    I missed Grimlock and Swoop. The others were Botcon exclusives, and there was a Black Fangwolf in Japan, not to mention Weirdwolf...

    Oh yeah! I forgot about that! I'll take him off the list. The big Grand Convoy didn't have anything, did he?

    That's a running change, not considered a new product. Strangely enough, I was JUST looking at a picture of that.. haha.

    Energon: Kicker & Highwire... or what ever the motorcycle dude was called. I don't think Insecticon was ever repainted either?

    Grand Convoy probably had a lucky draw repaint or 2, I'd guess at least one gold chrome one was probably made.


    Insecticon had a Superlink variant like the other Terrorcons.... "Forest" or "Tropical" type Chromehorn, in mainly green.

    Armada Smokescreen (the one with the sholder crane) hasn't ever had a repaint I don't think. He had one planned, but it got canceled.

    Energon Downshift (Wheeljack) also has never gotten a repaint I believe, and neither had Cybertron Primus.

    Or Cybertron Dirt Boss.

    Or even Scout-class Cybertron Scattorshot.

    Come to think of it, there are a few, sparse molds that haven't gotten repaints from the A/E/C years, but they're a small bunch....

    Got repainted as Universe Smokescreen, packaged with Universe Ransack as a "Battle in a Box" secondary retailer exclusive.

    Nope, he got (slightly) repainted into Universe Downshift, a KB Toys Exclusive.

    Universe Battle in a Box Smokescreen was his repaint. Done in blue as was the trend for Smokescreen at the time.

    There was a Universe version of him, too. Very similar to the original but different enough to count.

    Those are accurate, though.

    I don't think it's right to count something they only made a scant few of... I'm definitely not counting lucky draws for this... All the others mentioned (primus, etc.) were in my first post.

    A case could legitimately be made for Dark Crumplezone. He's an extensive re-tooling with different cockpit, guns, feet, and those little wings.
