    So they have repainted:

    Wheelie - Shadow Striker
    Warpath - Sparkrusher
    Rodimus - Smokescreen
    Beachcomber - some orange re-color in a random picture I have, not sure of the name.
    Cosmos -
    Bumblebee -
    Brawn -

    I know Bumblebee was repainted into Cliffjumper in Japan, but I wonder if we will ever see these 3 repainted into something else?

    I am sure they will all be in a pack with other legends I don't want like with my Sparkcrusher,Shadow Striker, and Smokescreen.

    I would love to see us get a Blue Cosmos (not sure of it's name), a Cliffjumper, and an Outback. I feel you on the packaging with others that I don't want though, It isn't bad when it is a 2-pack, but the Sparkcrusher 5-pack hurt a bit since I couldn't wait till clearance (plus I decided that I needed a legends Skids after that to go with Mudflap to display infront of Devs).

    And the Beachcomber repaint is Sandstorm, who I think looks awesome.

    I would really love a G2 Beachcomber, Bumblebee, and Cliffjumper at Botcon this year, but I am not getting my hopes up. As much as I dislike the movie Legends, I love these G1 inspired ones, they just seem to have a great amount of detail.

    While not technically Minibots, you also have the Universe Legends Hound, Jazz and G2 Megatron which they haven't redecoed yet, either.

    On the other hand, the knockoff market has redecos of the majority of the molds you've listed >_>

    You forgot the original Universe Legends. Hound, Jazz and G2 Megatron.

    Hound is getting a repaint as Tracker Hound. We could get Jazz repainted as the obvious Ricochet. Or paint him up as a stunticon? For Megatron, the mold would work for the purple Combat Megatron, or RID Destructicon Bludgeon.

    Edit: Beat by Shelfwarmercon.

    Yeah, as above, Brawn as Outback, Bumblebee should get a blue Glyph repaint and maybe Rodimus as Wildrider to go along with the Gentei version?

    You could maybe retool Warpath for a Bludgeon or G2 Megs look and Hound for Swindle.

    That's all I got.

    The Legends G2 Megatron can be done as Reverse Convoy too...just without the Convoy face if no retooling is included.

    They could do blue Cosmos as Pathfider.

    Personally I'd rather they just rerelease them in their original colours so I might actually be able to find them all in stores this time.

    Those little Universe minibots are indeed awesome. For Generations, we need new molds in Huffer/Pipes, Gears/Swerve, and Windcharger/Tailgate. That's a no-brainer 3 pack plus repaint right there!! Deluxes only you say?! Booooo...

    I was lucky enough to pick up the Henkei 3 pack (was strictly for the Clifflumper). But now Henkei Brawn="Outback", with an extra Beachcomber leftover.

    This thread has all of the new molds from Classics, Universe 2.0, Generations, etc. that are made in the 'Classics' style along with their repaints listed alphabetically/size (post #1), by mold/repaint (post #2), by line release (post #3). It's a great resource and check list if you're a fan of the Classics style, FYI.

    I would love original colors as well, but don't see it happening.

    I saw them all once, passed because of lack of funds, and had ordered somehting already that my money was tied up in.

    I only got Brawn,Beachcomber, Bumblebee in original colors, should have not bought that duplicate Beachcomber for a custom and bought one of the others.

    didn't Windcharger get repainted as Rook at some point?

    (and had a keyring attached, just to spoil the toy a bit)

    I'd be happy if they just released that last damned wave in the UK.
