    Man, I want Dreadwind/Smokscreen.

    EDIT: Oops, I guess that's supposed to be; Man, I want Dreadwind/Smokejumper.

    I'm not sure, but evidently due to his new paint job he lost the ability to jump or have rhythm.

    I do to. I love all that blue. Doesn't hurt that those are two of some of the best (not necessarily THE best) molds to come from the ROTF line either.

    Interesting choice for a Mindwipe repaint. Good to see a Skystalker repaint in the same paint theme, but the name Smokescreen doesn't fit it, imho. If Hasbro releases a similar repaint of Mindwipe, I might get it to turn into Soundwave (all it really needs is a new head and some yellow and purple accents).

    Elite Guard Prowl looks nice. It's not likely to happen, but a release of that repaint in the Generations line would be cool, and probably something I would buy.

    That EG Prowl looks a lot like the original color concept of the character, though I'm a little surprised it's the original version with the traffic light of uselessness instead of the Samurai Armor (or maybe the Jap. Animated series hasn't gotten to that point yet).

    Dreadwind and Smokescreen, while a brilliant use of those two figures, the blue seems to be overly blinding. I hope that's a PS job.

    That's a gorgeous color on the jets, but they need some yellow accents to better evoke Dreadwing and Smokescreen.

    Once again: Must. Have. Prowl. If anybody sees a pre-order or will be able to get hold of one, please PM me!

    It is a TECOLOGY Tomica Mitsubishi i-MiEV command car from the fire department. It has a mini power generator and need no battery to run. Lights flashes as well.

    That Dreadwing/Smokescreen set is beyond nice. I really wouldn't mind getting my hands on that set.
