It's repaint time for the next couple months. How does everybody think they're going? In one word: Skyshadow: fail Repugnus: pass Galaxy Force Prime: pass Cannonball: fail Exillion: pass Galvatron: pass Cryotek: fail Swindle: fail Swerve: pass Override GTO: pass Golden Age Vector Prime: pass Smolescreen (crosswise): pass Ransack GTO: pass In several words: Skyshadow: The new darker colors are good, but the mold was strickly average to begin with, and the original colors were plenty good enough on Jetfire. Nothing compels me to buy it. Repugnus: A great example of a new color scheme and the old color scheme working together. The old Undermine green still looks great and does not get obsoleted by Repugnus, but at the same time Repugnus looks fantastic in his own right and is more than happy to share the shelf with his green comrade. It's also a basic, so repaint sticker shock isn't so much a factor. Galaxy Force Prime: I'm on the fence with him, but damn the new colors, while subtlely different, are just so much better then the first attempt. He's too big and too expensive to own both, so the original may be sold. Cannonball: He's just too goofy, esspecially with the lightbar. On top of that the brown plastic looks horrible. Exillion: Here's a case of the new color scheme totally crushing the old colors into obsolete-ness. You'll never think of the blue guy again. In fact, the blue guy should have never been released. The mold was made for these colors, Hotrod homage or not. Galvatron: Same deal as Excillion. Crushes Megatron by a large margin and should have been the first and only colors. Cryotek: Another expensive and average mold gets another so-so repaint. Like Skyshadow, there's nothing here to compel me to buy this over the red one. Swindle: The colors may be a huge improvement, but the mold just does nothing for me. It's like, if you already own Energon Sledge, what's the point? Swerve: Colors improve on the original by a great deal. Basic mold neither takes up toy funds nor shelf space. It's a go. Override GTO: I really don't like the mold at all, but the colors are just so much better than the original I can't help but say it's a sucsessful repaint. Golden Age Vector Prime: Vector Prime is my favorite Cybertron mold. Period. If the golden guy we saw earlier does indeed surface on shelves, he will be snapped up fast by me. Total baddass. Smolescreen (crosswise): Yes, the Smokescreen colors look a little wonky on this mold, and yes I think the mold's a better bluestreak, but the mold is so great and the homage is so well done it's hard to say no. Ransack GTO: The Oakland A's get their own transformer. Good for them.
