    Check the first page. You can kinda see it there.

    You know how MP G1 Starscream has squadron markings showing his coronation gear? Ramjet's squadron markings are of a Chess Knight.

    Now, I'm not the fence about the nose. I like the white in alt mode but i know it is contradictory to the fact that his head has the black "nose" on it. I don't know how I will solve this cinundrum!!

    I received all 3 of mine today! Not-Dirge, Not-Ramjet and Not-Thrust! They came directly from iGear and they had marked the package as a $15 USD value, so managed to get out of any import tax, which I'm amazed about as I totally expected and budgeted having to pay... Oh well, I'll spend it on some more TFs now! ha ha... just have to wait for the Not-SunStorm to arrive now which will come at the end of the month.

    Some pics of the 3 that arrived today;

    and some pics of the custom MP SunStorm I currently have, which is going to be repainted into IceStorm or AcidStorm when the iGear PP03S arrives...

    Ooh, pretty. I hope my Elegy arrives soon. And that I can find somebody to steal Jet from.

    I recieved my Jet (Ramjet) today. I am soo very impressed with this figure, especially considering it is a third party release. I have absolutely not one problem with it. and my arm communicators have Soundwave and Skywarp.

    If I remember correctly, my Ramjet's arm-comm shows Shockwave.

    I wonder if they are hinting us at what's to come. Also, my MP Thrust and Dirge just shipped today! I can't wait for their arrival! :D

    Can someone post a close-up pic of MP Skywarps top (Takara). So that I can get an idea of where to lay the stencils?

    Not the best pics, TC was a little easier to see - this is what I was working on for my RJ, though I still need to track down more of the squadron logos, the decepticon air force logo and the tailfin letters. I figured it would be another good test for Google+, which it failed at:

    Tamiya light grey primer and TS-14 Black - Tamiya's sprays are so awesome that you simply CANNOT screw it up. The matte finish I did was 1 part Tamiya Acrylic Flat Base to 15 parts Future, but that can be varied depending on what you're matching it to. A little flat base goes a long way, so just add more future to the next coat if it's too dull. I just use an eyedropper, 1 drop of flat base to 15 drops of Future, mix it up and brush it on.

    *edit* I felt I should mention for clarity, that TS-14 is supposedly a 'flat' color, since they also make a Gloss Black and a Metallic Black. Even so, it's not a matte finish, and still comes out a bit shiny. Future works well to dull it down a little, and can also give it a real glossy/wet look if you don't add flat base to it. I wish that their Metallic Black had a silvery metallic look, but it's more of a gold/bronze metallic look that doesn't go with silvers, purples, or blues.

    The arm communicators are a wonderful touch. My Dirge has Shockwave and Thundercracker. Thrust has Astrotrain and, er... Thrust. :(

    Seems like it truly is random, if Thrust can talk to himself. Someone correct me if I leave anything out, but so far we have seen:

    Megatron
    Starscream
    Skywarp
    Thundercracker
    Sunstorm
    Soundwave
    Shockwave
    Thrust
    Astrotrain

    Have we seen Dirge or Ramjet on any of them? I know we haven't seen proper feedback reviews for Elegy and Attack, since not a lot of people have them yet, but it would be neat to see how many different stickers they do

    Yeah, I just checked my Thrust, and he is apparently talking to himself. The other communication has someone I don't even recognize, but he definitely isn't on the list you provided.
