    Finally got this from BBTS. It's lighter blue than what I thought. Came with two separate instructions. No bio card. Here are some pics. Will try to get comparison shots with Mindwipe/Skystalker later this weekend.

    Enjoy the pics!

    Blue stealth fighter reminds me of Cybertron Soundwave.

    Seems everyone likes G2-themed exclusives nowadays (even got the G2 'con symbols I see)

    It does seem a bit too far on the bright side, if they were really trying to ape the original article.

    Yeah I finally got to open mine last night, they are really blue! I was a bit taken aback with the inner packaging though. Very economical :tongue:

    Is that a metalic shade of blue or just the lighting?

    I lol'd when I saw the inner packaging!

    I like those G2 Decepticon symbols as well!

    The colours are really pretty, but the molds don't really say Dreadwing/Smokescreen to me at all, so that pretty much kills any desire I might have for the set.

    Just got my set in the mail today and I think it is worth the price. I paid 100 shipped from overseas and it arrived in 2 weeks flat.

    Don't let the flash fool you, its a nice blue

    Worth the 100 dollar asking price if you can get it soon. I don't know if I would of been as excited if the set cost 150+:lol :eek:

    Ya I think it's most probably due to the flash that's giving the figs a slightly lighter shade of tone.

    Well usually I'm not really a fan of G2-colored TFs but for this one I think they look real nice. thanks for sharing the pixs guys.

    Paid $75 shipped for mine. Only complaint is that Smokescreen's joints are a bit loose. Other than that I'm happy with it. Dreadwing makes an excellent drone commander.

    Finally completed my set of Mindwipe/Skystalker, Strafe/Sunspot, and Dreadwing/Smokescreen. I gotta say I'm really loving this particular deco. Especially with the G2 insignias.

    The light blue paint does seem a bit metallic which is nice. Such a cohesive color scheme, especially great if you like combining them in robot mode. Definitely my fave iteration of the mold.

    *this deco also shows how easily this mold can be turned into beast machines Jetstorm
