    Thats exactly what I was going to say. EXACTLY.

    I'd also like to see Brakedown in some form, probably as either the Prowl remold or a repaint of the Rx-8.

    I'd REALLY like to see Optimus remolded into Motormaster.

    And I'd really REALLY like to see more Combaticons...maybe Blast Off in the mustang mold and Brawl in the Xb mold.

    I like the idea of Sludge getting the Alt treatment...but I really don't see the Scion as working as well...I'd instead use Swindle, with a remolded head and LOTS of "off-road dirt caked all over" details :)

    I'm sorry but I would NOT want Soundwave to be purple! I also don't want to see three more repaints of a mold that already has 3 repaints, that's called beating a dead horse :lol  I would also limit repainting to G1/G2 personally, as that is really where the line has been hovering, including ravage honestly. I also would want every repaint to have its own head mold, and to limit them to no more than four total reuses per mold (including the original color) At that point, like the Ram, I say that's enough! there's several other highly popular trucks out there like the Titan, the Sierra, F150, the Tundra, etc. that could be used for the others. As for Hot Rod, I would like to see a character of his importance get to be the first color of a wholly new mold.

    I want to see the corvette repainted into Rodimus. It makes perfect sense with the body design and wrist blasters.

    Yeah, a red Mustang as Hot Rod would be nice, especially if they do a slight remold into a convertable. Even if it's like Ravage where they didn't include the roof. Just call him "Rodimus" so they can get past the legalities or whatnot. Hoping for the Prowl mold to be blue as well and be Nightbeat, just keep the trunk like the japanese version. Hope for Prime to be repainted into Motormaster, as the Nemesis, Scourge thing has been done to death, but probably won't happen. And would rather not have Magnus either, make a new mold for him, maybe a Ford F-350, since the armored form is really Ultra Magnus, so would be nice to make him a little larger and bulkier then Prime. Let's see, just letting this flow out stream of concious style. Hasbro needs to embrace the alternate transformation scheme of Sideswipe, paint him blue and yellow, remold a head and cal him "Punch"! The possibility is there, and if regular people can do it impresivly, they should as well. Of course Ford GT as Dragstrip. I'll edit this later on if I think of anything better, not that anyone will really care mid you.

    I believe that this thread was about repaints only... Which is why I let my imagination run freely as I saw fit, meaning limitless repaints of one mold... And not limiting myself to G1 or G2...

    I mean, ideally speaking, I, and everyone on this board, would want new molds entirely for each individual figure/name that is listed in this thread... But of course that isn't going to happen and we'd be lucky if we'd at least get remolds...

    So the way I view this is, if Hasbro and Takara were to stop producing new molds/remolds entirely, what would you like to see???

    And the "purple" I was referring to was more like Shockblast's "purple" not like a violet type purple... I think a very dark purple to the point where it's almost blue like Shockblast could work for Soundwave... I would've said a blue Scion xB, but that's already taken by Skids... And the next alternative I would've offered would be a blue Scion xA, but that would be a new mold entirely and not befitting of this topic...

    Hasbro would be all too happy to oblige. However in return, you'd be paying $30 or more per toy.



    Oh and I wish Hasbro would quit messing around and release the Ram as Trailbreaker.

    Huh. Cool thread idea, and practical too (seeing as to how many of these ideas could become reality). I'm whipping out my Unofficial Guide to TFs right now and am going over pics of all of the G1 TFs that haven't been done and I would like to see:

    -A black/silver SRT Ram as motormaster seems to be a logical choice.
    -A silver jeep seems appropriate for Megatron.
    -A red RSX for Cliffjumper
    -A yellow RSX for Bumblebee
    -A red Scion for Ironhide
    -A white ambulance Scion for Ratchet
    -A black Jeep for Trailbreaker

    And, though this may be a bit off topic, weren't there rumors of extending the Alts line into construction vehicles and other non-car/truck type machines a while back? I just don't see Starscream and some of those other guys (constructicons, aerialbots) working too well as cars and trucks. Can you say "two-foot-tall Devastator"?

    Thanks.

    I use Krylon Fusion almost exclusively. I use Tamaya spray when I have to (though there was none on this one). Both the white & blue are Krylon Fusion spray paint while the red on his face is Testors bottle paint.

    Love the Breakdown GM, would so buy that if it were official. Makes me question the ones they've already released.
