For me, certain molds just look better in certain colors, and it often depends on what the alt mode is. I didn't much care for Drift, mostly because the character is a Marty Stu if I ever saw one, but i really liked the Blurr repaint. Partly because of the sniper rifle, admittedly, but the point is that color scheme fit the mold better than Drift's.
On the other hand, the Allspark Blue shouls pretty much NEVER be on the mechanical parts of a bot. As the base color for the body work of, say, Blurr, yeah. But on the robotic parts not visible in alt mode? NEVER. There are those that manage to move past the hideous color, like DOTM Skyhammer (it almost fits, being an alternate middle ground between the white and the slate blue), but for the most part it just was absolutely terrible.
And finally, there's those molds that start with a nice looking color scheme (whether or not the paint apps are any good, they at least had colors that fit), and has at least one variant that is excellent, and one variant that blows donkey dung. Case in point, the Classics + Seeker mold. Thundercracker is excellent, as are Skywarp, and the second Starscream, but Acid Storm's "camo" paint job is remarkably bad - mainly in my military mind, as it's wearing what would be a ground based camo pattern, not an aerial one.
