    Yeah, I preordered two. I have a feeling this is going to be more popular than the clear ones.

    I just had pics sent to me but was asked not to post them. Not sure though I think they are from an original red mirage. All the paint apps aren't there from the KO.

    The red and white racing stripes. They are only on the KO so I think it might be an original red mirage.

    Not sure what you mean. Do you mean the red and white stickers that run along the top on either side of the drivers seat/cockpit? If so, I am looking at a pic of an original Red Mirage that has those.

    Yeah the red and white stripes is what I am talking about. They are actually painted on the KO instead of stickers.

    The images they have that Blue Meanie got were from me and are of the original one. I sent them the images to have the figure made. The red and white stripes are painted on the blue version of the KO but were originally stickers and are available on the sticker sheet. I had requested that for this one they omit the red and white paint on the figure yet leave the tampo on the hood bit with the 26 numbering.

    None of the figures are made yet so there is no image of a prototype yet. There is no need as all the figure is, is a change in the colour of the plastic. No need to test that.

    Spencer.

    Wrong color? The red color is actually from the red release of Diaclone Mirage.

    My cries have been heard. I'm all over this, maybe even two.

    Thanks for getting them to do it!

    Wrong colour? The red one was originally part of the Diaclone line. I can imagine someone at Hasbro all those year ago taking a look at the two of them when it came time to decide about Transformers and just saying 'meh, go with the blue one. I don't like red.'

    We could have just as easily had a Red Mirage as a Transformer in stead of Blue.

    Spencer.

    Exactly! If anything, you could just as easily say the blue one is the wrong color. But...I'm not sure which color came out first in the Diaclone line, blue or red.
