    ok, so screamer is prbly gonna end up with some sort of repaint, and i really want a repaint for every version-should i wait to repaint them, or just start doing what i can now and how that they dont show up later-cause id feel foolish if they did reappear.

    The one repaint that we know of is Skywarp. Personally if I get the mold at all, it'll most likely just be the Skywarp repaint of it. I don't see all of them getting official releases, let alone a majority of them. The Ramjet deco would make a nice toy, but I'd have to see what the colors would look like in toy form before deciding to get it or not.

    i counted 9 in the show but maybe 3 or four will get repainted eventually.

    whether it be exclusives or not is unknown but the main three should get toys.

    I personally think it'd be a tad foolish to go on a spree now, and then have half your work get released at retail. The Starscream clones are ripe applicants for possible store exclusives as well. Be patient is my advice.

    Yeah I could see them releasing 1 more repaint beyond Skywarp as a mass release just to fill out a voyager wave and the remaining 2 getting released as store exclusives.

    Now, I don't know if I want to get starscream in case he get a G1 deco. I would like all of them to get release that have been on the show. I would like to see a Sunstrom before Ramjet though. Damn coneheads!

    I can see Hasbro and retailers having a field day chruning out Starscream clone exclusives, the fans cries of "it was in the show so I MUST have it!" will be music to their ears.

    One thing that could hinder Hasbro doing multiple repaints of him is the fact he's a voyager class...fewer people are going to shell out $20.00 for every repaint than if it were a $10 deluxe...me being one of them...

    WTF? That was a little uncalled for. I just don't see Hasbro releasing 8 repaints of a Voyager class toy.

    Only repaint I'd get would be Ramjet Scream.

    He looks awesome.

    LOL, while I agree with you. Classics Prime has been repaint/cleared and I think that is close to 8 now. Given they are not all hasbro but there are a few to pick from.

    There have technically been 7 uses of the mold, but realistically only two of them count, imo. I don't count Takara, Botcon, or SDCC stuff, as I'm just talking about mass retail, though store exclusives I do count.

    I'd love a set of Starscream clones, but I've fully prepared myself for the likeliness that I'll have to paint some of them myself. I can't see them all happening.

    Ok, that's cool I am not sure how much the movie prime is or how many of those repaints there are either. Now they are all sold as different verisions of Prime and there are several of them. Also not sure if some of the movie repaints are store exclusives or takara's repaint. I guess the point I am trying to make is even though it is a larger toy at a higher price Hasbro will abuse the mold. At least with the seeker they are different characters while they all look exactly the same just different colors other than the coneheads.

    Well, there's also the Activators mould.

    Just watch as three of them end up at BotCon 2009 though :)

    hm i think sunstorm and skywarp will get there own voyager repaint and maybe ramjet will be a wal-mart exclusive and maybe a more show accurate repaint of starscream being a target exclusive and we could call the first release starscream thundercracker or something and the female will be a activator or a deluxe
