    Thrust certainly has some weird wings, but I like Dirge's.

    Fairly spiffy but the patterns on the wings look kinda ass in robot mode

    ...And why are Thrust's VTOL propellers covered in vehicle mode?

    Oh, very fancy, but with dirge, the didn't need that stripe. the wings alone make it different enough from the botcon one. Thrust Kinda of looks weird but still a buy.

    Bizzare that in the cartoon-accurate world of Henkei, they start doing fancy patterns *now*.

    Dirge looks nice, but I can't believe they covered Thrusts VTOL. I mean if they are covered up, whats the point in even having them. They could just as well not put them on at all, painted him red and called it a day. Very disappointing indeed.

    Well, Thrust is.... different. What a.... unique.... placement for his VTOL engines. Ahem.

    Dirge looks all right, if a little gaudy. I think I would have preferred if his stripe pattern was only painted on the top of the wings, though, so it showed in plane mode but not robot mode. It's a little distracting in robot mode.

    No regrets in ordering a pair, though.

    EDIT: Okay, after staring at them for a second, does it look like maybe Thrust's VTOL's are actually removeable? And can be re-attached on the wings? Why else would the wings have peg holes in their TOP sides? And the VTOL's look so tacked on on the bottom of the rear wings, I could totally see them popping off and being switched around. Anyone else see this? Am I crazy?

    Cool, I think I like the Botcon Thrust better,(but can't afford it so I'll go with this version.

    Hell of a time for them to start pulling weird ass Classics styled paint jobs. WTF is that about all of a sudden? Almost makes me wonder if Hasbro told them something along the lines of "okay you can release these guys, but you have to completely remold the wings AND paint them all whacky so they are not remotely close to the BotCon '07 versions". It's very un-Henkei like to pull something like this out of thin air.

    I'm disappointed with the result, but kind of thankful at the same time since now I won't have any regrets skipping these guys along with Henkei Ramjet.

    Thrust definitely looks to have removable thrusters that can be mounted on his wings instead.

    I'll have to remove the paint off the wings, the stripes look dumb.

    I have to say I am a bit disappointed in how these turned out. I know they needed to be different from the botcon versions but all the stripes and camo ... i dunno .. its almost too busy of a paintjob ... this is the only affordable way to complete the seeker set though so I'll probably still buy them.

    FROM THE WAY THE THRUSTERS ON THRUST'S LEGS LOOK...they are mistransformed...look at the robot mode...the are infront of the back plane wings...when in plane mode they are above the wing..unless that wing spins around and around...something is strangely wrong...

    Are you thinking that maybe there is a peg on the VTOL fan part that attaches to the hole on the top of his wings? That would make more sense...
