    should have been #1, the mold was used 6 times in transformers before 86 and #1 tomax and xamot? neither figure has a repainted part from th other, all are opposite, plus the scar on the head

    the others were single repaints, nothing surprising there

    I agree, Seekers should have been #1. I have a love/hate relationship w/ da seeker mold. In the 80's the mold was boring, & I couldn't fathom buying the uglier repaints of Starscream. But by time WST's came around, they made the other seekers cheap enough to collect 'em all, & the Classics/BotCon/Universe Seekers were poseable enuf & sort of nicely & slightly better painted(altho sum were hit or miss) to collect 'em all! ;)

    This list pretty much loses all credibility with its #1. Tomax and Xamot aren't repaints - they're remolds. The paint is completely identical, just the torso pieces are mirrored. I've yet to see a "paint" that can change the whole sculpt of a piece like that.

    Agreed, the Seekers really should be at the top of the list, since they're truly just the same figure in three different paint jobs. There's a difference between "looks similar" and "IS similar".

    Tomax and Xamot aren't even repaints. Same paint deco and mirror image molding. What was "re"-painted?

    Either the entirety of Botcon or Joecon (GI Joe Convention) exclusives would have been a great #1. Repeatedly taking any ol' repainted general release figures, slapping the 'Con seal of approval on them, selling that shit for big $$$ and expecting fans to eat it up despite a healthy share of fan-rage takes massive balls.

    everyone who noticed xamot is not a repaint, rather a remold should write the author & let him know what an idiot he is. & oh yeah, let him know the seekers shud b #1 or the botcon or joe con exclusives. Peace out. ;)
