Now, I'm obviously completely Gay For Bay... but is it me, or does every single "Movie mould in G1 namesake's colours" tend to show just why the original colours weren't used in the first place?

Basically, yeah. The Jazz recolor looks alright, but the rest of them... yuck.

Yeah, being a huge Starscream fan (I know..I know..) I can remember being excited to see the G1 repaint of the movie figure last go around. When I did see it/get it I was so disappointed I immediately tried trading it off to people. I unfortunately still have the ugly piece of junk.

The G1 colors rarely ever work in a modern context. I think one of the few that comes close would be Prime obviously, I don't think a solid red big rig is that garish and/or fugly.

The Swerve redeco of Movie Sideswipe in Sideswipe's G1 color is, imho, awesome.

Honestly I was disappointed that he was silver in ROTF. The car style and look just screams to be done in a cherry red color.

But like I said, just my opinion and I agree for the most part.

I'd like to see a red Ironhide. I dont' know if it'd look like crap or not, but I'd be curious to see one. (Legends version doesn't count)

Most of the G1 mulit paint schemes will probably not work. Some of the single paint schemes like Sideswipe, Sunstreaker, Iron Hide, Rachet, Tracks, and more should work well. The Hoist reprint is pretty good. Mixmaster and the G1 color Devastator do not look to good.

I'd be interested in seeing Tracks...though I don't know if the car would even look good in blue. I'm not sure it fits it that well.

Hoist did look good, but Ratchet did not.

I'll agree that Hoist didn't look bad, and Swerve (while IMHO the inferior one) was alright too - but then both of the originals of those were basically one colour, and the layout transfers well to the moulds in both cases. But most of the G1 schemes are just too... basic to work with the Movie schemes - say you were to repaint Leader Prime in G1 colours, the top half of him would basically be a pile of flat red bits, very uninteresting visually. I'm not even sure what the fascination with the idea is, what with most of the character models not coming close to the originals...

I really don't like that Barricade. His face looks like he's wearing a mask of sorts. At least the hands are better...

That Barricade is hideous. And he looks like a poncey (but angry) french nobleman

I hope for the French that you're only speaking of his face.

That Mudflap, however, looks,like Skids, like the only toy of that character I could ever want. But I think he's at least partial, a retool of his brother...

Arcee in Chromia's color and Chromia in Arcee's color? I am confused.

I think this just stands as evidence that not even Hasbro think Arcee is important enough to bother learning the name of.

Wimmen Transformers belong in the kitchen - we don't need to know what they're called. "Oi!", "Sweetheart" and "Memsaab" are enough, surely?

Actually, I think the vehicle modes and the colors match up. It's the robot modes that are wrong.

Then again, there are people who think Arcee's motorcycle mode is actually based on the motorcycle Mikaela rides in the movie. I'm not entirely convinced:
