    I've never liked the idea of those two being turned into the same car. Cliffjumper could be done well as a red repaint of Meister, since they both used to be Porsches.

    What I'd really like to see is Bumblebee (or Goldbug) as a Lotus Elise, and remolded into an Opel Speedster/Vauxhall VX 220 for Cliffjumper. The'yre all the the same car, but the Lotus has curvy body work, while the Opel and Vauxhall (which share the same bodywork) are much more angular.

    The Windcharger mold could also work for a Tailgate in white blue with a silver head.

    Wow that's alot of repaints. Which should go to show that there are at least a few of us fans who'd buy more repainted Alts. And please keep adding to this thread any new ideas or comments on old ones. The more support we show for the idea, the more likely that one or more of them may be made. :D

    I dunno. I doubt anyone would complain about more new molds, but we long ago accepted the fact that everybody was going to get at least one repaint. And we're well on our way to getting every mold three times with a minor change to one here or there.

    I'd like to add to that list. I think Runabout and Runamuck should be the two Scion repaints (basically agree with the ones listed, mostly that the cars themsevles be black and white). I don't really want to see an Ironhide/Brawn/etc. repaint of such a craptcular car and while the car mode is decidedly different, something about the chunky bot mode of the Scion seems appropriate for those two. What's more, they'd only require one new head mold.

    That and I may not have sounded all that enthusiastic, but I agreed with somebody else that we should get the blue RSX as Nightbeat, so there should be at least two votes for that. And I'm not sure where my proposed red convertible Mustang fits on that list.

    Wow what a long list! I can't think of too many to add because someone else has already said it, so here are my votes (apply new headsculpt where apropriate).

    Mazda - Nightbeat
    The Scion is Skids right? If so, Ironhide would make a nice repaint.
    Acura - Breakdown
    Dodge Ram - Motormaster! (though Long Haul is a creative choice). I also like Trailbreaker as an Autobot repaint. I'm starting to feel sorry for the guy getting slighted all the time.
    Subaru - I've always had a soft spot for that little Powermaster, so why not Getaway. I'd buy him.
    The Ford GT is Mirage right? If so, I'd like to see Wlidrider. Since Decepticharge is essentually Dragstrip, that would complete the Stunticons.
    For an Autobot repaint of Mirage, Springer would look cool in various shades of green.
    Jeep - lots of good ones here too though I think Beachcomber is the most apropriate.
    I also want to add Sandstorm to the Jeep catagory in gold/orange/black colors.
    I'm torn between Hot Rod as the Corvette or Mustang can I vote for both? I also like Razorclaw as a Grimlock repaint and the Tigertron Corvette.
    The Honda is perfect for Blurr. Also if they could make a more femine look Arcee could work as the convertable.
    I like Sideburn for the Viper, they don't all have to be G1.

    That's all I can think of for now, but I think the list everyone has come up with proves that there are still a lot of good repaints that could be done and it's all just a matter of choosing the right characters.

    If it takes forever, I still want my damn Subaru Alt. Prowl :mad 

    Just repaint the body just like BTA Alert, minus the read. Color the head just like Alt/BT Prowl.
    They can rename the figure "Prowl 2" to differentiate from the original Acura mold, kinda like they did with the tin can TFs (just on the package, not the official name). The number can be 16A or something.

    Repaint the Acura mold, give it a new head and make it Red Alert. I know there aren't any Fire Chief cars like and Acura, so just put on some fake Fire Dept. sponsor.

    If they could make a cap for the Dodge Ram you could go for Trailbreaker or Ironhide.

    I'd go with Rumble(or Frenzy if you prefer) for the Rx-8 Meister mold in the lighter blue, with gold rims, and a red visor eye.

    Unless you are counting my White corvette custom, it would not complete the Stunticons. You are leaving out Breakdown.

    I am kind of partial to my custom of him, of course. I plan on making a Motor Master from the Dodge Ram too. That only leaves Wildrider for me.

    I too, would like to see all of the Stunticons represented if for no other reason than it makes sense for the theme of the line. With Dead End already done and a few fans looking at Decepticharge as Drag Strip, we need to have the other 3 cons made.

    Motormaster made from the Ram would sound like a no brainer and the Ford GT as Wildrider works too. ( though I'd still like to see him as a named Drag Strip character) most of the other Alts would make for excellent bodies for the remaining Stunticons.

    I'd like to see other Scramble City guys made as well. A Black version of the Acura police car would look good as a Streetwise. (in a highway patrol deco)
