    I recently pick up rotf mindwipe off ebay from an American seller and I absolutely love him. I’m on the hurt now for skystalker to pair him up with, my question is though after seeing the Japan repaint of both of them as smokescreen and ????? (sorry forgot the name of the other) and hasbro’s skystalker repaint sunspot/sunspore (again sorry my minds gone blank) would anyone be interested in a mindwipe repaint to go with him, orange/white style paint job? Say if he was released in the generations line.

    Yes, other people have mentioned wanting one. But why would it be "Generations" and not in "HFTD"? Sunspot is in "HFTD". Mindwipe is a "Movie" and a voyager. Generations has only the deluxe pricepoint assortment.

    I hope they repaint Mindwipe, it's too good of a mold to not reuse. They should give him a bat-faced head with a fanged mouth and release him twice: in purple and black as Ratbat and in gray and blue as Bomb-Burst.

    Ratbat sounds nice. I don't even care that it's ratbat but I think putting that mold in a rich royal purple would be nice.

    An Acid Storm repaint might be interesting.

    Sure, I got the G2 colored set and love it! :thumbs2: 

    However, I dunno how a orange/white paint job would look on Mindwipe....:sly:

    that would be cool although i don't know if this mold would work as an autobot. that is i'm going by G1 and assuming it'll be g1 strafe
    a con in white/red would be awesome
    yea it's defo too good of a design to only use own

    Mindwipe is probably my favorite Voyager mold so far,any kind of a re-paint would be an automatic buy.

    Knowing about Sunspot, wouldn't be surprised if the mold gets redeco'd as that voyager Strafe we saw listings for. Loving the Ratbat and Bomb-Burst ideas, also wouldn't mind a homage to either Falcon or Delta Seeker.

    I dunno why, but I think G1 Starscream colors would look amazing on him.

    Acid Storm sounds intriguing.

    But I think a dark purple-black repaint with a different head would make a fantastic movieverse Cyclonus.

    5 bucks says the Voyager Class Strafe found in Walmart computer systems some months back will be a repaint of Mindwipe.

    All we know about Strafe is that he showed up as a listing in Walmart computers, and that he's a voyager. People are assuming he'll be a repaint/retool of Mindwipe, but this is not actually known.

    I was personally hoping for a blue repaint as Soundwave, with Skystalker repainted into Ratbat. I don't think it will happen, though.

    I'm thinking he would look pretty cool with Bludgeon and the upcoming Skullgrin.
