    Because the Powerglide mold is white. The only real change would be Red to Blue. Plus "Bad Boy" is a silly name, it sounds like a dominatrix named him.

    I'm a little confused. Where's the question in there? A decepticon repaint of Powerglide has already been announced. Are you asking about that?:confused:

    I don't see it happening at all. We're already getting a Decepticon repaint out of the mold, and there wouldn't me much difference between Powerglide and any Bad Boy repaint of it. If we get a Legends Powerglide figure that's a new mold and released in mostly red unlike it's Ultra counterpart, then I can see a Bad Boy repaint having a chance, but with a different name entirely.

    I think it's really, really unlikely. As others have said, there is already a Decepticon repaint on the way, and it's an obscure homage with a silly name that would already look too much like the original release of the mold (well, assuming it was based on the white/blue scheme of the E-Hobby minibot, not the olive green scheme of the original Gobot Bad Boy).

    Even as a collector of A-10 molds, I think it would be a lapse in judgment on the part of Hasbro to release Bad Boy.

    But the good news is, if you really want a Classics Bad Boy, it wouldn't be a hard custom to manage. Just get an extra white Powerglide and an extra Stormcloud, and swap Powerglide's red bits for Stormcloud's blue or silver bits. Okay, you might have to do some minor re-painting or paint removal, but still, as customs go, I suspect it would be a cinch.

    Why? Big Daddy isn't a Gobot and never was; he was a Micromaster originally.
    And as has been said, the only vaguely practical way of redoing Bad Boy would be in the original Gobot olive green colourscheme; Powerglide's already very close to the E-Hobby version anyway.

    But yeah, we've got Fracture (Crasher) coming from Classics Mirage (not my first choice of mould for her, but okay). There's been digibashes of Ramjet as Fitor (including one by myself, but I wasn't first), and that'd be nice to see. I had a decent list of figs that could be quite easily repainted as Gobot characters, including Prime as Stax, Jetfire as Sky Jack, and Ransack as Dart, off the top of my head. How about Grimlock as Zod? :p

    I think that used the Lugnutz mold into Classics Cyb-Kill.

    See, if they did Bad Boy in his original green, that'd be REALLY awesome.

    See, that's what I think would be a better idea. Maybe even get another basic or two and make them an exclusive repaint pack.

    Don't see Lugnutz working at all. Ransack has been used for a Cy-Kill custom; which I like, but personally it's too small for a leader character IMO. An oversized KO might have worked, though. Personally I'm considering a tweaked Armada Sideways.
