    All Ice, No Man - X-47B - Gizmodo

    Wasn't sure where to post this, but I saw this on Gizmodo today and figured other people would be interested. Granted this plane is colored gray in the pics, but the shape/function is almost identical to Skystalker. So now, for those who were thinking his design didn't come from an existing UAV, you were right because it came from a future UAV.

    nice one - whilst he seemed to clearly be a UAV of some description, i did wonder where the design had come from.

    it's kinda cool that TFs keep apace with military hardware, some of the crazy stuff the boffins come up with freaking deserves a transforming robot version.

    On the subject, anyone notice Mindwipe is designed to look like the Air Force symbol?

    That doesn't look anything like a real life Skystalker.

    Totally!


    It does look a bit like that guy who probably should have been called Whisper, though.
