    The TFCC just tweeted out an image of the final sample of G2 Ramjet's alt mode:

    I'm hoping that the color is just a little off in that photo and that it is closer to the colors in the robot mode picture.

    EDIT: From Twitter


    It also looks like Cheetor has been touched up a little, at least in the eyes:

    the "touch up" on cheetor you describe is actually the lack of black lines.

    I'm not digging the green tail fins on Ramjet as much as before. But still a buy for me.

    Weren't these supposed to be up for pre-order soon? Like this week?

    I thought the tailfins were to be in clear plastic. They looked markedly different now. Looks like another photoshopped job too.

    Yeah, the black outlining on the head's been taken out. It should be noted that the picture with blackarachnia had the same head (without the black lines). Personally, I kind of liked the black outlining, but the eyes were just bad (should have been closer to diamonds rather than a triangle)

    They made Shattered Glass Cyclonus look shiny and chrome last year too, but then it wasn't.

    I hope I hope it's more blue than green. Still getting Ramjet, but I'd love it to be closer to the G2's blue.

    They are waiting until after Easter and Passover to launch preorders. I expect them to be available sometime tomorrow. If you're not following them on Twitter, I recommend it (as do they). That seems to have become their official means of distributing information.

    The tailfins looked translucent and/or chromed in the initial pic because it was Photoshopped from a photo of the original with its black fins.

    But count me in on the "hope the colors are more like the bot mode pic" bandwagon.

    Ramjet looks crazy awesome as usual. I'm buying a bag of Sweettarts when he finally arrives to celebrate.

    Still no decent picture of Cheetor's headsculpt. The last 'real' photos were nice teases but where shot from the front twice.

    Decided to get him through a(nother) very helpful board member, because I don't want to miss out if it turns out to be a cool figure, but I still have the feeling his face didn't turn out so well and they're sort of trying to conceal this (sorry for thinking this TCC guys!) :( 

    I guess I can make somebody else happy with the toy when it turns out bad, somebody who doesn't mind the look at all.

    I hope that the "ramjet" name can be removed. I hate Transformers with names on them, and this one I intend to repurpose as the G1 version of one of the clone Starscreams from Animated (G2 Starscream would be nice too).

    cheetor should of had digital spots, animal print on a cybertronian form is FAIL! I always liked cheetor towards the end of BW, but crap paint apps are not helping.

    Moving violations showed a bucket if black paint being dumped on him. Kinda meh, but I accept it

    Anyways, I really liked the black lines. In general paint apps really bring out the finer nuances of a mold. His face, though pretty well sculpted looks plain and empty, like tfp optimus (though I got used to that, and well this). I think the lack of black also makes his eyes look even smaller, which is no good. I'll definitely still buy him. Maybe I'll also invest in a fundal marker, tho I do hesitate taking a marker for the first time to a $60 exclusive

    It looked chromed because it was photoshopped from a photo of Henkei Ramjet with Chrome parts.

    It may have looked translucent by people confusing reflection in the chrome with seeing through it.
