View Full Version : Universe 2.0 toy repaint speculation


Starfield

Many of the Universe toys, especially the Legends, will probably be repainted at some point. I thought it might be a little fun to make some predictions.

Swindle from Hound (Legends and/or Deluxe) would be nice.

Megatron could be Bludgeon.

I'd be surprised if Inferno doesn't get a Haz-Mat version of someone.

Some would be more difficult. A new Cosmos would have to be a new character probably. Cyclonus is Cyclonus, a different color character of him would be strange. Maybe Armada.

What do you think?

Silverbolt as Darkwing could work, but I don't know if it would $27 work.

Inferno could (and probably will) be reworked into Grapple at some point.

Onslaught could be recolored into any of several similar Micromasters.

Energon Slugslinger could be recolored to match its G1 counterpart more closely and fit right in.

I'm hoping for Inferno=>Hotspot myself. That'd be win. The Legends Special Team Leaders pack version was awesome.

Inferno into Grapple is a no brainer. Along with Sidesipe to Red Alert, I'd also guess Sunstorm too.

My own wish list.
Ironhide => Skidz
Silverbolt => Whisper (another one from the air patrol like Storm cloud)
Onslaught => Hardhead (but that's a remold)

SILVERBOLT INTO DARKWING.

Galvatron repainted into Actionmaster Megatron's tank. Bit of an odd choice for something to be the basis for a repaint, but there's a certain amount of similarity between the two.

Cyclonus could get a repaint into BM Jetstorm, if only as a nod to the Botcon exclusive from several years back. Seems like the kind of odd thing they'd do.

Yeah, Inferno into Hotspot would be cool and different. Another option, if they wanted to be really weird, is sticking a new head on it and repainting it into RID Optimus.

Here's another one. repaint Cybertron Override (with a new head-sculpt) into a Classics 2.0 Elita-1.

Or Arcee.

Tramp

The mold doesn't work for Arcee. IT's too different in design, transformation, and alt mode. However, it is very similar to Elita-1, particularly in transformation and at least the front end and cockpit (including the head being behind the canopy in vehicle mode)

Voyager Inferno into Grapple
Even though they used the same base mold in G1, I can't see it. There's not much chance they could turn the new Inferno into a crane (and if they did, Grapple would end up with a crane armature attached to his forearm). Hot Spot Zone would be a lot more likely, I think, and maybe even Roadburner or Wheelblaze, since yellow fire engines are so common these days.

As for what I'd like to see...Prowl redecoed as Flash would be neat, although it will never happen.

I could see Silverbolt getting made over as Brainstorm.

Galvatron and Cyclonus are basically useless for straight-up repaints because they're so distinctively a certain character. With a new head, Cyc could become a random late-run jet like Cloudburst or Needlenose or someone.

I'd like to see Onslaught repainted as either Guzzle or Roadgrabber.

Also, some non-Universe molds I wouldn't mind seeing dusted off...Energon Sharkticon deserves to be re-released in some capacity. Maybe as Splashdown or some other generic-looking aquatic Pretender (not so much Finback, since Sharkticon's original colour scheme basically looks like IDW Finback anyway)?

And Cybertron Landmine absolutely needs to be redecoed as Scoop.

Already started on the legends. :)

I want the prowl to Flash repaint. And more Turbomasters!

As for me, i want to see a g2 megs legend fig modded a bit so it works as Bludgeons inner robot.

None of that is a reason for them not to do Arcee. Case in point, Universe Blaster has naught but a paint scheme in common with his G1 namesake.

That aside I think a redeco into Elita-1 would be a swell idea.

I'm not saying that they shouldn't make an Arcee. They most assuredly should. They just shouldn't use the Cybertron Override mold to do so. Arcee needs her own original mold. As for the Universe Blaster. I can't stand it. I didn't like the Cybertron Soundwave to begin with. That's not Soundwave to me, nor is the "Blaster" repaint, Blaster.

I quite share you dislike of that mold, and I also would like to see an orginal mold of Arcee (based of IDW?) that doesn't transform into a motorcycle. But if it's a choice between a redeco of Override and no Arcee at all, I think Override is close enough. Of course, I'm also curious to see what (if anything) Animated will show in that department, and she's also rumoured to be in TF2. So, we might be Arcee'd out, so to speak, by the end of 2009. ;)

I'd go more G1 in design personally. the Animated line is supposed to be coming out with an Arcee, though I don't know when. As for the movie rumors that's no rumor. That was confirmed a long time ago.

I dunno. SLugslinger is one of the flimsiest molds to be produced in the last few years. Doesn't stay together all that well. I'd rather not see them reuse a mold that flops all over the place.

Cyclonus is Cyclonus, a different color character of him would be strange. Maybe Armada.

What do you think?

BM Jetstorm?

Here's my humble, unlikely list to stand alongside Onslaught...

Ultra Poweglide = Blast Off (Hey, better than a tank...)
Deluxe Hound = Swindle
Ultra Blades = Vortex (Not exactly the best bot mode for him, maybe)*
A few molds could work, actually, pref. an Ultra = Brawl

*Hey, who was that green Springer-like copter from one of the Unicron Trilogy lines? Perhaps that'd make a better Vortex?

On topic: Landmine/Landquake from Energon would be nice. The Bulkhead mold also comes to mind. The Energon Mirage, since we don't have any naval units yet. Just some that come to mind.

I'd actually like to see some different things come out that haven't been done in a while. Some of the new minibot moulds could be used, too. I was thinking that the Legends BB (G1 Series) could be repainted as Goldbug, or maybe Bugbite. And Warpath could also be repainted as Guzzle (obscure, but it'd be cool). Brawn might actually be a good Swerve, Huffer, or Outback.

On a larger scale, I think that Ironhide would work decently as Trailbreaker.

QFT. That's why you should always buy from Bandai or Takara. Unless customizing, when it becomes non-Hasbro product anyway.

I would like a Scourge, but i don't it. And i'm having too much fun with the Tit. ver. that i don't think i really need a new one for Universe. An Animated Scourge, however, i would buy instantaneously.
