    The color scheme they used for the test shot looks like some bizarre fusion of Starscream, Skywarp, and Thundercracker. And, in some ways, it looks a lot more like the character it's supposed to be than the actual color scheme.

    either that or it is a tribute to G2 tf's :) 

    If the pilot really turns out to be Archeville that would be cool.

    If I understand the term "test shot" properly, then I would point out that there isn't a "color scheme" at all and they simply test the molds for the figure with whatever spare plastic they have handy - hence the hodge-podge of colors.

    Um...guys...

    That's not a paintscheme. That's literally some randomish spraypainting that greatly resembles the usual "gaff it up so it looks unpleasant" treatment lots of testshots get given.

    Neat photos, but the only real revelation is the opening cockpit.

    I like it, it really disguised the fact that there is a robot in that plane, more than meet the eye indeed

    Wow. Some one really wanted it to look bad by spray painting it all over. I guess that'll deter some people from buying it. Looks cheap in those colors. I wish we had some robot pics though. I can't wait for the actual figure.

    Jet is still sleek but youch, the colors are nasty. Someone sure did a good job making that testshot look bad.

    I know there really wasn't any "scheme," per se. I just used that wording for lack of a better term.

    Nozzles still look weird. The combination of the ball-joint mounts (which is surprising, since they're trying so hard to make it a realistic F-15) and the simplification of the nozzle design makes them look too long, too big, and mounted too far aft. Just eliminating the movable joint and putting them in the right place would help a lot.

    Or possibly, they can be moved forward and locked into place, it just hasn't been so in any pic we've seen. (It took a while before they put the intakes in the right position for bot mode, it might take them another 2 months to put the nozzles in the right place for fighter mode)
