    Without stickers, clear shots of the actual product.

    p.s. SOME Japanese fans hate it as well, one went as far as to call for a ban of Kawamori from all future TF developments

    I've long since come to terms with the mold. The coloring took a little longer. He rocks. Now, that doesn't mean I wouldn't love to see the original color scheme, but he is still awesome.

    Hmm, so the wings are attached at teh shoulders? I'm not sure if I like that or not yet. Hopefully that doens't hamper articulation.

    I still love him.

    Interesting to hear that the Kawamori-designed feature didn't go well with some fo the TF fans over there, though. I wonder if a TF bbs'll have wars with a Macross bbs. :lol

    If it was a new seeker it'd be fine, but that colour scheme isn't anything like realistic, and it's nothing like Starscream.

    C'mon Takara, get your asses in gear and announce the anime repaint now.

    I really like the mold as well, the colour scheme leaves much to be desired. I'm still holding onto my pre-order though as the mold itself I just cant pass up.

    I am really, really impressed. I like the subtlety of the vehicle mode and I think the robot mode uses the Starscream colors well enough to recognize who he is. I want.

    So all the Japanese fans have the same opinion, as well as "us" americans? I can't wait for it, and I know several people here feel the same way.

    I will admit, though, that if they would have just gotten the colors right, this would be much less controversial. I would prefer it that way, but I like it either way.
