    So with Classics Bumblebee we get Classics Cliffjumper. It seems like that with each mold we get we have your defacto repaint.

    For example, Optimus painted white is Ultra Magnus or painted Black is an 'evil' Prime.
    Megatron is repainted into Galvatron
    Any Starscream design automatically begets Thundercracker and Skywarp.

    Any others anybody can think of?

    Hot Shot into some Hot Rod homage. Usually anyway.

    It's unfortunate they did Classics Cliffjumper as a straight up Bumblebee repaint, I wanted a new head at least, same for Titanium Cliffjumper. That kind of thing irritates me, they weren't repaints of each other in G1, why be lazy with them now? That's when it bugs me, hell, I've been waiting for a set of Seekers without any remolding, I want Classics Thundercracker now as a straight up repaint.

    It looks like they're going to break some of the trends at least. They said if the did a Classics Galvatron it would be a new mold, not a Megatron repaint. And we have Titanium Ultra Magnus who's a true Magnus, car carrier right to armored robot... even though we did see a white WWI Prime repaint, too...

    Ebay:
    Bluesteak, Prowl, & Smokescreen come to mind - although that triumvirate hasn't seen much reuse in recent years. Almost in Alt/Binaltech, sans Prowl.

    -Arcee as Paradon Medic (PVC, Superlink figure, statue)
    -Appears they're simply repainting the Titanium Sideswipe for a Sunstreaker figure. Don't know if this is a sign of things to come...

    god I hope not. Though they may be brothers, they were completely different molds in G1. Though they have been done that way before, OTFCC exclusives a few years back, both were RiD Prowl redecos minus the light bar.

    I would think that Ironhide-Ratchet would be obvious, but is there even an Ironhide coming?

    Yeah--Last time the Ironhide/Ratchet thing was used was the Botcon figures, and before that the PVCs. Were there anything else where they used that repaint idea?

    Well, obviously Ramjet into the other coneheads.... and Starscream into TC and possibly Sunstorm (though he's not really G1).

    Tank Megatron into Bludgeon, Brawl, or (outside chance) Warpath, maybe?

    Frankly I wouln't mind seeing gun Megatron repainted/remolded to Shockwave... it would be better than no Shockwave at all.

    If Classics continues, Sideswipe and Sunstreaker will almost certainly be repaints of the same mold. That's fine with me, I just hope they at least give them different heads.
