    Not really digging the yellow/gold stripes on the shoulders. Looks off, somehow. I do like the darker red, but the Henkei isn't actually that bright under normal lighting, either.

    Definitely sticking with my Henkei, as the lightning-bolt stripes help it assimilate better with my other Classics Seekers. But this is definitely a nice (and much cheaper) alternative.

    I doubt the seat's chromed. The coloured cockpit glass on the Classics Seeker mold has always managed to look pretty vibrant, chrome backing or not.

    Nice looking Thrust. I will have him too. Although, it's still a little irritating that it's so similar to the Japanese Exclusive. I guess better closer to that exclusive then the Botcon one!

    :drool: 

    This is indisputable proof that even when fans get what they want, someone will go out of their way to find the silliest fault in the toy so they can complain.

    Loving this version a lot more than the Henkei. I like the more G1-ish deco and the metallic red plastic. I really wish we'd get shots with the turbines on the legs though.

    That is damn sexy-looking.

    Love the metallic maroon color.

    It's more of a "chrome seats are fucking stupid" issue. I love the colors, I want the character, I want the toy, I'm getting it, I'm going to smile when I get it, I may cheer, I may dance, but a chrome seat is still fucking stupid.

    I wonder if we'll be seeing a Generations Thundercracker in a similar vein as this Thrust...

    Maybe a repaint of this with the Starscream head in place of the detachable turbines or Gentei Gentei Dirge minus the conehead? Yeah, the wings would be wrong on the latter to be TC, but it's a thought...

    Forget TC. Since they are going this route, please release Henkei Dirge without those wacky stripes and I would be all over that.

    I already have the henkei version, but this is too good to pass up. Bought along with Drift!

    Ah,good point. Maybe it'd be more sensible to repaint/head swap Thrust to make TC and repaint Dirge. But I really, really want Cracker, since I already own Dirge and Thrust.

    Ah, I see. At this point, they can release them all and I really don't care anymore, The way I see it, I can open up and play with the Mass release ones and leave my Exclusive ones a lone.
