    So, I grabbed Mindwipe the other day, and like most everyone else, I haven't put him down much. While admiring his jet mode, I noticed something design-wise that really makes him shine so much more to me. I took some pictures to show what I'm talking about.

    Added some lines:

    I put him back and did a quick tracing of his outline:

    Then added a few more lines (not very artistically, but you get the idea):

    Then him beside the Decepticon symbol:

    Very cool design homage IMHO. Anyone else notice this?

    I don't think Lockheed Martin had a Con emblem in mind when they designed the F-117, but still kinda cool I guess.

    Yeah, it may not be intentional, but still that's an awesome find.

    If you transform him backwards will he give you instructions to locate the last source of Energon on Earth?

    I'm sure they didn't. But perhaps the toy designers had the 'con symbol in mind when they chose the F-117 as a vehicle mode. They also had to tweak the design so it's not a perfect F-117. It looks like the tweaks they made make it a closer fit to the symbol, to me anyway.

    was this on the first joint of the night or second when this was discovered? JK

    Really that is kind of neat, and talk about an out there observation.

    He has a secret third form where he transforms into a map to the USS Enterprise.

    I find it much more interesting that his robot mode resembles the Air Force logo.

    That is pretty interesting Quantum. Now you just need to build a display base using that design. That would look pretty damn cool!

    The tips of the wings and tail fins (which are very different than the F-117) seem to make it look a lot more like the symbol than the original plane.
