    Well, I'll be "That guy", and point out that very few of the TF's on anyones list is a repaint. Repaint - Transformers Wiki describes that a repaint is just that, a figure who really is only repainted, all the plastics and everything else remains the same. What most of you are naming are in fact Redecos. Redeco - Transformers Wiki That is, the same mold but made with different colored plastics, paint aps, and whatnot.

    Anyway, some favorite redecos:

    Galaxy Force DVD Mass Production Noisemaze
    Henkei Dark Skyfire
    BW Neo Black Big Convoy
    Car Robots Brave Maximus
    Energon Landquake
    Animated Purple Shockwave
    Car Robots Black Convoy
    Superlink Galvatron G
    Henkei Smokescreen
    Animated Shadow Blade Megatron

    It's hard to name a top ten, heck, it would be a bit of a challenge for me to name the top 10 black redecos alone.

    As for least favorite, well, that's even harder, given the majority of the Universe 1.0 color schemes; sure we got some winners like Razorclaw and Frostbite, but then there's Tankorr, Silverbolt and dozens of others. Then you add G2 to the mix and it becomes even harder to do. That's ignoring the questionable repaints from lines that weren't garish to begin with, making it too difficult to narrow it down to just 10. Suffice to say, there are plenty.

    No love for Energon Energon Starscream? A lot of the repaints being mentioned are very very recent (The OPs only involved movie toys... 2007 - ?). These have been my favourite in the years that I've collected.

    1. Energon Energon Starscream - awesome repaint. Despite having the Classics Starscream mold it is Energon Energon Starscream that sits on my classics/universe shelf.

    2. Universe Skywarp - the Jetstorm repaint, is high quality. Is not just a palette swap (like Jhiaxus -> Stormjet), and fantastically evokes the original character. Get it if you can, top mold and top colours.

    3. Robotmasters R Blade - G2 Jetfire was unfortunately not released in G1 colours at the time - don't get me wrong the colour scheme was nice but the release of R Blade showed us how it all should have been done. Absolutely love it.

    4. Fox Kids Transmetal Tarantulas - the Silver version as seen in the Beast Wars Sourcebook. The colours are amazing, it all just works.

    5. Revenge of the Fallen Thrust - not that I ever had any interest in getting BotCon or Henkei Thrust, I now have no interest in getting Generations Thrust - it really is one of the best repaints of recent times.

    6. Alternators Sunstreaker - cool character, cool mold.

    7. Classics Ultra Magnus - so disappointed I never picked this up at the time

    I got bored after this. Essentially in a repaint I either look for an eyecatching colour scheme that works, or a good homage.

    Oh honourable mention to Movie 1 Big Daddy, it was nice for fans of his character to get a repaint after all these years - makes a nifty stand in IDW Impactor too

    Don't have top 10 favorite repaints, so I'll just list 5 favorites.

    Favorites:
    ROTF Armorhide
    Animated Shockwave (Purple)
    Classics/Universe Nemesis Prime
    Recon Barricade
    Classics Skywarp

    As for least favorite repaints, there are one too many to list. I'm not too big on repaints.

    Which one? The e-hobby exclusive? The Animated one? Because if you're talking about the movieverse version, that would be because its the original colors and not a redeco.
