    Cause we all like making polls about the colors TFC uses for their toys amirite?

    SR-71 (Mostly black):

    M-21 (Silver/white with black border):

    For me, the M-21 seems like a good compromise. It's realistic to the actual plane yet also reminiscent to G1.

    I think you need NEICO's digibashes to further this poll.

    Voted for M-21

    Edit: Added them to your post :)

    I say M-21. It really is a good compromise, and looks kick ass in those digibashes. It looks very Aerialbot-esque, too. All black just looks off with the robot mode, and while all white would be G1 accurate, it would probably look out of place on that plane.

    Shouldn't there be some red on Silverbolt's legs, his knees perhaps?

    Considering the options above, I prefer the white over black.

    EDIT:

    Would love to see Silverbolt with yellow lines running down the back of his jet mode like the red lines do on the Blackbird:D

    If it has to be a SR-71 and not a Concord then the M-21 is a perfect compromise IMHO.

    M-21 all the way. It is the best in all aspects. The alt mode looks kick ass, the bot mode is relatively G1 accurate and the torso mode is pretty close to G1. Personally I will be very disappointed if they go with all black. The M-21 color scheme is an excellent compromise.

    I'd like to actually see the all white choice I'm voting for, but I think that's the one I'd prefer.

    m-21, I'm very pleased this isn't concorde because that's a really long toilet roll with two wings, but that white on the blackbird-esque design pops.

    This ^^

    Since the M21 is an actual blackbird model and sports a REAL life deco, AND SB happens to be a white plane, I think it works perfectly...nothing else really makes sense...

    Also, it looks bada$$!

    Neico's digibashes make me cry... because I won't be buying this set anytime soon.

    Really... his digibashes make these look soooooo good. TBH, both bashes look good.

    But I can see the compromise of a mostly white ship with black outlines and underside being used. I don't think a proper (and almost entirely black) SR-71 would be bad, at all.

    All black is way too reminiscent of movie Jetfire... which obviously isn't the look TFC is going for with their Silverbolt analogue. The M-21 look splits the difference nicely.

    Although I agree all white with some red (or whatever was the G1 look) would be acceptable also. Just not all black with red piping please.

    I know I'm in the minority, but damn the black digibash looks good.

    I came in here to vote for the white and black version assuming it would just be pictures of the jets...but after staring at the digibash comparison, I have to say I'm quite impressed with the black jet. Looks awesome, and makes the bot mode stand out more.
