    Just a bad picture. You can see a hint of blue on the truck mode.

    I wonder if they are aware of the goldmine that is Dirge, Thrust, and Thundercracker.

    Please don't go there. Seriously, we don't want that box of snakes on this plane.

    Seriously, this is getting old. I'm all for these guys getting made even though I already have them, but can't we just get through ONE thread about anything Classics related without hearing the same complaint over and over?

    Anyway, if Megs ends up with a better paint job, and Screamer gets an actual painted face, I'll cave and get these guys again, we'll see what happens.

    I just noticed on those pics - none of them have rubsigns, odd. I don't recall the Hasbro proto's/stock photo's NOT having them. Maybe TT got rid of them.

    According to the catalog the retailers got, there will be some "Anime accurate" differences in color/paint (though exactly what that means when the molds themselves are not necessarily 'anime accurate' is up for debate.), even though the images shown are identcial to the Hasbro releases (except for the rubsigns, it seems)

    Prime will probably ditch the blue on shoulders, get an Autobot logo, and lose some more of the yellow.

    Megs might be G1 colours

    Bumblebee might not get his jetski (not pictured in his image)

    Starscream might have a G1 paint-job (maybe altered missles since his pic is missing them)

    I preordered a Megatron, just in case it's more accurate in color, and a Starscream to repaint. I doubt Megs will have different colors than the U.S. release myself, but I figured I'd better order soon just in case. I can always cancel the pre order if I find out it's the same.

    I'd love to see a decent paint job on Starscream and no orange or green on Megatron of course. But also, get rid of the stupid rubsigns, get proper faction symbols on them, and a Classics Ghost Starscream in a future wave. That's something NOBODY has, and I don't want to buy another copy of the G1 mold to get a ghost version. I've got 10 copies of that mold as it is.
