To explain this thread in the simplest way possible. Despite how Hasbro love to do repaints whenever possible, these are repaint ideas that sort of make sense but might be too much even for them. The main reason I thought of this is because of the new Generations Gnaw. We have other sort of Sharkticons... even if they're not all officially called Sharkticons they do transform into sharks... though not typically bipedal monster sharks with skinny little arms. The G1 Sharkticons are army builders but buying multiples of the same exact figure is boring to me. To make it not boring I thought, why not make repaints based on other shark transformers as if this is what their G1 counterpart would look like. This way instead of them all being exactly the same you can have a bunch of different colored Sharkticons. It technically wouldn't be accurate to the cartoon because they were all identical there but this way people like me who don't feel like buying multiple Gnaws can still army build their Sharkticons. I have a list of possible characters and color schemes to repaint the Sharkticon mold into. Overbite: Technically also a G1 character. The original toy was not the same mold as Gnaw but they are very similar to each other. Of all the other sharks on this list I feel like this one is the most likely to actually happen. As for what color scheme to use, as there are a few different ones for this character. Any of the ones based on the original mold would be the most likely. However I personally like the color scheme of the Universe Hellscream repaint the most... which I think is also the least likely color scheme to use on the Gnaw mold. Rippersnapper: Another G1 monster shark. This one seems a little less likely than Overbite but still more likely than the others on this list. As for color scheme, I would prefer the Prime Beast Hunters color scheme. Grimlock: Now we've gone to the least likely repaint. The only reason I'm even suggesting Grimlock is the Beast Hunters Rippersnapper mold was repainted into Grimlock so he technically has been a Shark/Dragon thing before. It honestly made no sense why they did it the first time... and they made two different repaints of him using that same mold. One based on his G1 colors and the other based on his AoE colors. I prefer the G1. How do those even exist in the first place? Axalon: The Energon Sharkticon mold was repainted in the colors of the Maximal space ship from Beast Wars... I don't know why because it looks nothing like the Axalon but yeah, this is a thing. Maybe it's just me being color blind but it kind of looks similar to Gnaw's color scheme as well. Lighter tones but almost the same colors. Cybershark: Based on the Beast Wars character. I'm not sure which color scheme to go with though. Maybe mix both his original mold and the TM2 mold. There's elements of both that I like and some things of both that I don't. Like I'd rather replace the white of the original version with the green? of the TM2. Hellscream: Obviously in BW2 colors. Hellwarp: Though it seems to be based on Hellscream TFWiki is telling me this is actually G1 Skywarp not BW2 Starscream. The name is different and the colors are a little different. There's more black on this version. So why not have both? Sharp Edge: Based on the Beast Wars Neo character. Sky-Byte: Also known as Car Robots Gelshark. I think it'd be interesting to see his asymmetrical color scheme on a G1 Sharkticon body. Sharkticon: This dude doesn't actually have a name. Maybe could go with Nemesis since his design and color scheme was loosely based on that. This would be a G1 Sharkticon in Energon colors... which is quite a switch considering we had three Energon Sharkticons in G1 colors called Air Shark, Land Shark, and Sea Shark. Garbage disposal bot: This was seen in Revenge of the Fallen. The general shape of the body is actually very similar to Gnaw's beast mode right down to to the spike ball tail. So why not make a Sharkticon in this color scheme. He already looks like one. Cindersaur: Based on the Beast Hunters Predacon... another repaint of Rippersnapper. Hammerstrike: The last one. According to TFWiki the original Hammerstrike is actually the same character as Cybershark. But RID Hammerstrike is a Decepticon Sharkticon. I kind of want to take elements of both their color schemes and mix them together. The Beast Machines version is more interesting but get rid of that light brown or whatever it is and make those parts go with RID colors. Now this is why this is very unlikely. While some of these might happen most of them never will. I doubt Hasbro will be able to sell 14 different versions of the same mold. It'd probably break down pretty quickly repainting it that many times. That being said, the ones I want to see the most are Sky-Byte and Hammerstike. If we can at least get those two so I'd be happy with just that. Maybe Takara would make Hellscream and Sharp Edge. That would most likely be it for that mold. It would probably be more likely that if the Gnaw mold does get repainted that it would just be slight variations on the G1 colors. Sort of like they do with the Junkion mold but without any new held molds. That's be fine too as long as they're not exact copies I'll get some extras. I just thought it would be interesting to see G1 Sharkticon versions of other shark characters.
