    Lovely - Shame he's Japanese only I like the mould and I like the Character and he looks like he'd make a passable stand in for a Classics Vortex too. It will be a shame if Hasbro don't make a version of Skywarp - but I suppose "A" version is better than no version.

    I wonder why when they made the mould they didn't include the other head design though ? (for Thundercracker & Skywarp) and keep the original head for Starscream & Ramjet ?

    I think that there is not the head change of THUNDERCRACKER and SKYWARP.

    Thanks again, Masabon!

    It's a reference to G1 Vortex's glue gun.

    Hasbro's Thundercracker lacking any new head mould means it seems to follow the design of the Legends Thundercracker rather than the 2007/2008 Thundercracker Voyager toy.
    It's just a shame the same is true with Skywarp - But then I guess some people would prefer they match anyway.

    And I guess Hasbro can always decide to add a new head design in a future re-release of whichever colour scheme they decide to apply to the Dlx Starscream Mould in the Future.

    Perhaps a Black Movie Starscream would be nice (they have a few to copy after all).

    Maybe some of the Dlx Movie or other Moulds might get a set of Black repaints as has happened with some Robotmasters toys and with a couple of the War For Cybertron toys.

    For example (these would be good getting similar treatment to the Tokyo Toyshow exclusives) :

    War For Cybertron Black Bumblebee (draws on the idea of Movie black Bumblebee's and the black keychain BB).

    Dlx Movie Optimus - Coloured like the latest Voyager & The Amazon ROTF Leader Prime

    Black Ratchet (like the HFTD Voyager toy & the RPM)

    Silver & Black Patrol Barricade (like the RPM toy).

    Black Dlx Starscream or Nebula Starscream like colours or perhaps based on the 2008 Black Legends toy

    Black Sidearm Sideswipe - based on the HA toy

    Black Nemesis G2 Laser/Reveal the Shield Prime

    Black RTS Perceptor as Magnificus

    and so on.... it looks like they have plenty that have some relevance to a black repaint - some would probably make a good repaint as others though - but might be best left for Botcon (Orion Pax from Kup for example).

    Am I the only one getting a Armada Red Alert vibe from the head?

    I'd use the head on a DOTM dlx first rescue ratchet (red repaint) if it wasn't so evil lookin'!

    I'm sorry if this is posted already, but does the artwork on the head just look too much Armada Red Alert to anyone??
