    Could these repaints be in the future?

    Energon Shockblast as Universe Shockwave (There was some repaint on ebay a while back, but nothing has surfaced)

    CLassics Starscream as Sunstorm

    Cybertron Runamuck as Runabout

    Energon Signal Flare as Reflector (could use a new head)

    A U.S. release of Henkei Red Alert

    Energon Swoop in g1 Colours

    Classics Inferno as Grapple

    I'd go for a few of those.

    I've got the three other uses of the mold but I'd still drop the $$$ for an upscale of the legends release. Hun-Grrr too. I also REALLY want Sunstorm, Grapple and Runabout. I'd rather ave a new mold for Shockwave. The Energon Shockblast isn$t THAT bad outside of the massive gun arm but I want a new Shockwave :D

    I cold do without the first one.

    Hasbro have either been vague, or said "No" on a Classics Red Alert.

    Turning Inferno into Grapple will require a significant retool.

    I'd be willing to accept Grapple redecoed into Heinkei Hauler, Sunstorm and maybe Shockwave. Other wise Breakdown from the Sunstreaker/Sideswipe mold and Airraid from the seeker mold.

    Er.

    Runamuck is already in Runabout colors Hasbro just called him "Runamuck" because they couldn't get the "RUnabout" trademark.

    How do you turn Inferno into a crane?

    It all depends on how good a crane you want it to be really, also if its more the complexity of the tooling than the amount of plastic used then switch inferno's water cannon for a crane arm might not be such a problem.

    Oh and I'm more shocked we haven't seen e screamer as sunstorm and re paints of e sharkticon, slugslinger and towline given none of them have had hasbro repaints and they are all fairly good toys.

    And in the movie line I'd like them to do ROTF Sideswipe in a Tracks deco.

    I wish they'd do Animated Cybertronian Optimus as Kup. The custom that that guy did was amazing. It was something I wouldn't have thought of and it worked so well.

    Wasn't Slugslinger repainted into Airazor by the TFCC? Released alongside Astrotrain, iirc.

    Yeah but that's FP not hasbro, I'm talking main line, its odd cos Hasbro repaints most moulds at least once.
