Best Transformers colour schemes
Posted 16 May 2017 - 08:04 AM
What other toys have particularly great colour schemes? I'm particularly fond of BotCon Hunter, Double Punch and Wingspan:
...But I'll probably never own them.

And by extension, G2 Megatron and Energon Sixshot. There's just something about purple camo, i guess.
I like the Combaticons' normal colors, too, since it's nice and military themed while allowing the individual bots to be visually distinct.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.
If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.
Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Despite being my usual favorite, Hot Rod has a look and color scheme that definitely belongs. Loud flames on a red base, with silver and yellow accents? Yes. I love the many different executions/adaptations of it, from the big H-shaped flames of Armada Powerlinx Hot Shot to the trailing golden flames of Excellion. Of course, when they go to the magenta well, that's a whole different kind of cool.
Now that that's out of the way...
This guy came up in one of the threads.
I love cop-car deco. Prowl. Barricade. CHECKPOINT. Strongarm. Phantomjaw [whom I've been going back and forth on whether or not to track down]. That's a lot of pictures but you get the idea. This guy pictured here is an underrated example!
The G1 deco will always be the default mental visual for me, partly because it was first and partly because it's been revisited so many times. But THIS color scheme for Bruticus makes me HAPPIEST. I wish they'd been able to lay on more visible camo for robot mode, but the colors are just so unapologetically zappy that it's undeniably awesome.
I'm also fond of Superion's G2 colors, but not to this extent.
Speaking of G2, while the unified team deco is also a favorite, I will someday own a Red G2 Snarl and Green G2 Slag. Partly a nostalgia thing from being some of the Transformers I remember seeing in person as a kid, at a time when I thought they weren't making them anymore. Oddly, no strong desire to get a G2 Grimlock. Once had a turquoise Grimlock, but the plain blue is nice too.
Also really love these and am sad I may never be able to track them down.
Actually, clear plastic in general really lends some extra oomph to any color scheme. Shame it's so fragile.
I did find these a while back though, with Counter Arrow and Artfire (right?) being my favorites of the bunch. "Player 2" colors are super cool.

*Swoons* TM2 Spittor
I think the G1 toy wears the colors better, but the BotCon version is still super pretty. Man, I really need to bite the bullet and buy the original someday.
Almost the entire 1988 Decepticon lineup has amazing colors. I really need to retake this shot with the other 88 'cons that have now gotten new versions.

I agree with everyone else's posts so far.
TM2 Spittor! And that execution of Skyquake's colors, yay.
Also, how could I forget? I've been looking for this color scheme to be mapped onto many a Prime figure.

Doesn't the original Skyquake suffer from the whole disintegrating gold plastic thing?
Unfortunately, but just because you can't touch it doesn't mean it's not gorgeous.
