This is a short mainly pictorial review of the black repaint of DA-15 Jetwing Optimus Prime. It doesn't need much writing about since it's a mould that has released and reviewed many times already. It has the same areas of darker grey as the regular Jetwing Prime, which may indicate these parts are gang-moulded with the back pack. The metallic teal is nice, but I'm not sure many others would agree. Note unmasked face. For some reason this was the hardest of my three leader Primes to transform (the easiest being the first leader Optimus Prime), hence the lack of truck mode pictures. It was a real pain in the arse lining up the arms to form the nose of the truck. Having said that though, I've seen no evidence of mould degradation, distorted parts or degraded detailing etc., unlike the voyager Darkside Optimus Prime I purchased a while ago. For me, the chrome on the wings is okay, the metallic wings being reminiscent of the unpainted US military aircraft of the 40's and 50's. However the chrome on the guns is a bit much, hence being left in the box for the photos, still in their twisty-ties. Also of note are the instructions which are all in English, whereas the box is a mixture of English and Japanese text. Is this usually the case for Takara Asia exclusives? Edit: Alt. mode pictures.
