    Any white and/or Blue colored repaints are awesome in my book.
    My favorite colors on a transformer.

    G2 Bruticus while not realistic at all, I find oddly appealing.

    I'm going to have to say Universe Depth Charge.
    Although I don't own it so I can't say much.

    Universe Snowcat. I was not a fan of the mold and the colors made it sink to a new level.

    Well I know enough fans like White and Black Primes for them to be a permanent feature, at least make Magnus "Ultra" and give him some armor. A little design work perhaps could make it articulated. Either way, wouldn't an MP or even Classic 'Ultra' Magnus be awesome??

    I'm surprised no one's mentioned Energon Rapid Run yet, the horrible yellow plastic with black stripes and on a mold as terrible as Sideways... At least the minicons are cool.

    Also, the Jungle Bonecrusher repaint that's coming ain't gonna win any contests.

    Universe Silverbolt comes first on my list, then comes Universe Optimus Primal, and G2 Superion.

    All of the Universe figures are pretty bad. The movie Cliffjumper repaint just looks horrible too and is an easy pass.

    G2 Ramjet for vile colour scheme, Sunstorm for being a character best-left forgotten.

    I completely forgot I used to own a couple of the G2 Combaticons before I read this thread.
    Anyway, my vote is actually going to go to First Strike Voyager Movie Prime...man that thing is ugly (IMO) and (again, IMO) the Robovision repaint isn't much better.

    Everyone is picking on Silberbolt...but the colors kind of make sense.

    Primus is supposed to have pulled them from their realities and reformated them. Beast Machines Silverbolt was purple. He got a new form, but retained the old color.

    Same thing happened with Primal essentiall.

    While gaudy, I never thought they were particularly poor repaints.

    Now the Universe Prowl with little change but a horribly giant Autobot symbol, that was a poor attempt at a repaint.

    After looking at Universe Silverbolt, he's hands down the worst. But remember Armada Hotshot? I know he's not a repaint, but his color scheme is just.... bleh.

    And RID Prime is just downright lazy for a repaint. I mean seriously, a yellow firetruck?

    I'll admit Hotshot isn't that great of a figure,
    but, in my opinion, his color scheme is the least of his problems.
    Unless you just hate the color yellow.

    Armada Hotshot was just, "bleh" as I previously stated. But his repaint isn't very bad. He reminded me a bit more of Hot Rod with red but I actually like Cybertron Excellion most for a Hotshot repaint.

    Well, I am also with Universe Silverbolt as the worst repaint. That almost plain purple looks terrible. I think that's the problem. Universe Razroclaw looks better.


    But I also give my vote for Nemesis Strika... for God's sake... she looks like a mix of food... HORRIBLE!

    How about the rare combination of bad repaint AND bad mold? Galaxy Force Saidos, nice beast mode, worst robot mode I've ever seen, he had an ass for a left hand! Bad enough... then Hasbro repaints it for it's US release so on top of being a lousy toy, he's PURPLE.

    Hhn... I'd have to say the worts repaint I own would be EHobby Shothole. He would have been fine if it were not for that gaudy green torso. He's not bad, he's just not pretty to look at.

    Second, Classics Cliffjumper. Awesome deco, great concept, wrong mold.

    Third, Beast Wars 10th Anniversary's Cybertreon repaint. I don't think I need to explain myself on this one.

    Yeah, I'm surprised nobody ( I think) had mentioned white tiara Primal. I think he's almost decent in 'bot mode 'cuz of the blue helmet but yikes.

    I'm not fond of Rescue Ratchet. The fact that he's white and red makes perfect sense, it's the execution that kills it...completely half-assed paint apps and a lame shade/finish of red. I know there's worse repaints out there, but every Target within 20 miles of me has tons of these and I'm tired of seeing them.

    Movie Cliffjumper AKA Red Skull is pretty awful and just unimaginative.

    I hate these repaints colours.

    Universe Silverbolt (Nuff said)

    Deep desert Brawl (for some reason the green is way better)

    Offroad ironhide (Could a of been red.)

    Recon barricade (From cop to security car)

    universe Optimus Primal (Trukk over Munky)

    Universe RID Optimus Prime (It's pretty tacky)

    Armada Powerlink Red alert (Very Unnatural looking)

    Universe Ransack. (I never liked Hoist head) Longrack PWNs you.

    Movie Divebomb (Still having doubts on it)

    Cybertron skyawrp (Too much Purple not enough black.)

    Jungle Bonecrusher (0-o)

    Nuff said on all.

    I'm throwing my hat into the ring with the E-Hobby Hound. A sand color wouldn't have been bad, but the end product just looks bad IMO.

    Outside of Transformers I have to say that the following is the worst repainted toy in history.

    I don't know who it was that ever thought a blue, chrome chested Skeletor was cool.

    I don't care if Hasbro typed something on the back of the packaging that explained the colors, they are still horrible.
    Primal gets my vote as the worst.

    Everyone is aware that yellow firetrucks actually exist, right?
    If people want to talk about the laziness of the paint applications that is one thing, but everyone keeps mentioning "Yellow Firetruck?" as if that is completely incredulous despite a link to several real life yellow firetrucks that Sso02V put in the 9th post.

    I actually like that mold -particularly the robot mode.
    But the colors on the beast mode make you go :confused: .

    If you take all the parts that are grey for no reason and just change them to white or black where it appears completely illogical for them to be grey then it would be much better.

    Oh yeah, and color Primal's Barbie Princess Tiara black for God's sake.

    If you're talking Primal, I actually much prefer the Cybertron repaint over the original. The brown and black looks way better than the black and gray of the original release - especially with its tiara and red hands. With the better colors, you really get to see hos amazing the figure is. One of the best deluxes from the Cybertron era.

    If you're talking Megatron, I like both versions equally.
