    Sweet. Good Lord, I totally want these.

    But not for that Price. Urgh, I thought Skywarp and Thundercracker hurt my wallet...

    Is it just the angle of the packaging? Or are the two 'stub' wings two different shapes?

    Nice, can't wait for Thrust to come out since I doubt Bodhar will ship them out individually to those who ordered both.

    Sweet! He looks good, I'm still not convinced by the stripes, but they look better here. Mine'll be coming with Thrust, so fingers crossed he shows up soon.

    Have you opened him yet? If so, how's the QC, any issues/looseness?

    I see he has packaging like Thundercracker, but they actually used real pictures of Dirge and not recolored versions of Ramjet (unlike TC & SW used recolored Starscream pictures). I guess they had to due to the new wings.

    If Henkei Dirge doesn't suck as much as Henkei Thundercracker, maybe I'll get one at some point.
    For now, Botcon Dirge is good enough.

    Just opened and poked around, I see no QC issues like other exclusive seekers before. paints are neat, and joints are tight(crotch is a bit loose, but almost same as regular product). some says their paint quality still sucks, so maybe I was just lucky... anyway there's no fatal QC issue, I think.:cool: 

    oh, and comic included is the same as Ramjet/Jetfire. not new.

    Crikey - A loose crotch. I nearly lol'd pepsi max all over my keyboard reading that.

    Sounds like I better contact the parents-in-law over in Japan and tell them to expect a couple of boxes soon ;)

    Cool, did you get yours from Bodhar? I'm hoping mine will arrive soon too... But I guess he'll wait for Thrust to ship as well before shipping overseas.

    SWEET! Hopefully TFsource gets him, Thrust, MP Grimlock and the Cassettes in soon, since that's where I preordered all of them from.

    Ricochet, are you going to take some pics of that sexy seeker outta the box?? :) 

    Hey, in that photo his gray areas don't look as bright. Are they darker than the samples listed on Ganbo's site?
