Motto: "Solutions can be found if one knows where to look."
Weapon: Ion Pulse Guns
First of all, thanks for taking some time to discuss the questions I submitted. Also, no worries about the name; I'm not even 100% sure I know how to pronounce it correctly. (It's from the old name for the element mercury, if anyone's interested: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/hydrargyrum)

The answers presented in the episode are great, and I pretty much completely agree with all of them. On the topic of Rainmaker colors, there's a custom Earthrise Ion Storm by Grimlockimus that incorporates black into his color scheme, which I quite liked.
Linkin Park Soundwave is always worth bringing up due to how bafflingly untasteful that deco is.

It seems Megatronus might've misinterpreted my thoughts on Wheeljack. Not a problem, but I thought I'd clarify here. It's not that his colors scream "Alitalia"; it's that cars generally don't have two contrasting accent colors unless they're sponsored (the same goes for most other types of vehicle, as far as I can think of). Thus, his colors have this sort of vestigial contrast.
On top of that, they're not terribly interesting or unique, either. There are already so many white and/or red Autobots. Wheeljack can be the white and green one! We don't have many of those.
In the end, it all comes down to the thought that Wheeljack, a character I really like, has a color scheme that I don't, and there isn't even much reason (the way I see it) for keeping it that way.

On Strafe: I see what you mean about the TFWiki image doing some weird things with the colors. While they look better in this site's galleries, I still think they're pretty bad. I guess I just don't like red and green together :lol: .
Sometimes I say strange things.

“But, okay—if I want to prove him wrong, maybe I should look at things from his P.O.V.”

Thanks also for answering my question(s)!

I'm glad you made a change to the question as that's what I intended (not quite sure why I said WFC).

I think there are two types of collector - one who collects whatever they want from each line and the other who tries to select the best version of each character. I think Drift and Skids are a good shout, I really like Siege Hound though!

I actually still use the Classics/Botcon coneheads in my collection, I like the idea of them being the same size as the Decepticon Targetmasters from Titan's Return, as well as them having a special significance because they convinced me to start collecting modern figures in the first place. (I also avoided the crap of trying to get hold of the Earthrise figures.)
