I think this is a great idea for an appreciation thread. because let's face it, repaints are more likely to be frowned upon rather than appreciated. in fact my first response to repaints is usually negative, but I'm so glad I got the ones that i did. and I'm sure they'll be more in the future. its been a thing since the 80's. initially implemented (and still used today) as a marketing gimmick to decrease production cost, and increase sales revenue. but who cares about all that boring crap. cuz as it turns out we've gotten a lot of great characters & figures out of it.. as I'm sure most of us do, I've got a plethora of repaints. I'm currently getting some stuff together, so I can take some photographs.. looking forward to it..
