    anybody have it yet? I saw 2 at Walmart yesterday and was contemplating on whether to get one. I know its based on the classics Jetfire mold, which is a great mold, but i want some opinions on the color scheme before i get one.

    The color scheme looks really nice. I have Jetfire, so its pretty low on my purchase list. I'm sure I'll get around to buying it sooner or later. My wife has cut off my spending till after the holidays, so it may be awhile....

    I got my 2nd yesterday (got 1 loose one misb), and I love this figures. I like him more than Jetfire since Tread Bolt reminds me so much of a "Blue Angel". Pictures don't do this figure justice.

    The only issue I've found is the face. The blue makes it look a little lost.

    Other than that its a great repaint. It has some lovely details like the silver helmet, gold Autobot symbol and gold "Air Deffense" logo.

    Its a great mold and worth owning!

    How difficult would this be to repaint into a Jetfire?

    I greatly enjoyed this figure as well. The paint scheme is quite good and the Blue Angels reference...I hadn't thought of that, but sweet...

    I would recommend just buying a classics Jetfire somewhere instead of trying to repaint a Treadbolt, due to trying to put coats of white on dark colors. Jetfire's still fairly inexpensive online, and I'm sure you could find one on e-bay or through BBTS or TFSource.

    I love this mold in the classics line and the color schemes in general on Treadbolt - I would recommend picking him up

    I love it. The jet mode looks great without the thrusters. The canopy is amber colored, which is a big plus for me. Bot mode is decent, but not perfect. I'm doing a little additional painting to it, but otherwise I'm very happy with it. It looks better in person.

    edit...I said 'perfect' instead of 'not perfect'!

    summary......hes awesome get him only thing I dont care for is the blue face and all the brown

    that would be kinda difficult from what ive seen theres no colors that are the same on the 2

    not sayin impossible but thered have to be alot of disassembling involved
