Hey you, yeah you. The person collecting Transformers. What are your thoughts on repaints? Like them? Great. Don't like them and wish that they'd go away? Tough. Like them or not, repainted Transformers are always going to be in the offing. It simply costs too much money to design and tool a figure for Takara and Hasbro to not try to recoup their costs by offering repaints. For the most part, I have a rule about repaints: buy the ones that I like and that make sense. I have broken that rule a couple of times, like with YOTH Optimus Prime, but I've pretty much stuck with it. With Masterpiece figures, it gets hard to turn down certain repaints because of the history of what they represent. Tigertrack is beautiful and represents an old Diaclone variant of the Sideswipe figure. Another beautiful repaint? MP-18S Silverstreak.
