I got my MP-07 preorder from TFSource today. I'm one of those pesky g1 only types so I am lovin it! On thing that surprised me for the good was that the blue was almost identical to the gen 1 color, including plenty of metal flake. The pics I've seen online really didn't do it justice with excess brightness, (I'd say moreso on this one than a lot of them seen in pics first). I can't wait to put on the stickers and really give the gen1 once over. If your on the fence, get it!! Best paint job of all 3 in my opinion, and he's not even my favorate (cough, skywarp the schizit).
