    Ok, seriously, I've asked this in at least two threads to people that have this set and no answer, can someone PLEASE tell me if his windows are clear light blue plastic (as it was suggested at one point that they might be) or if they are painted light blue? I'm also interested to know if the spoiler is molded that color of yellow or if it's also paint.

    The windows are painted blue with red plastic underneath and the spoiler is painted yellow.

    Dude so totally almost put that same one on-great minds I guess:thumbs2: 
    I like the clear ones better for some reason - I save those metallic ones for other stuff.

    Ok, so it's the same one as the Challenge at Cybertron set (which I already have). Thank you for the replies, this has really helped me to decide whether or not to get it.

    I'll probably put a full color logo on when I get a moment to do so.

    I put that one on because they are the only ones I have. I decided to get the WFC stickers and get the symbol sheet for free, two things I wanted most from them.

    I do find it amusing that we both used the same size. :)  I used it because it saved me some smaller ones and looks good on Rodimus.

    Where did you get that emblem? It looks great, lots better than the silver-backed reprolabels. I want one.

    I'd suggest the Reprolabel set for this deco. The absolute worst feature here (imo) is the hood, and how indistinguishable the flame deco is from the background. Yellow on an only slightly darker yellow backing? Wtf guys. Get some real flames and contrasting color in there and it'll look way better.

    Reprolabels. The clear Autobot emblem set. They look great on anything but red (they blend in). I like how they let t he original colors show through. And it may be just me but they have a finish that I really like.

    Solid plastic windows? I guess they took out the car interiour that classics rodimus has.

    No, it's still there. You just can't see it anymore.

    Al that sea of mid red plastic and painted windows makes him look like Crossovers Iron Man Race Car or Playskool Transformers Speed-Bot.

    The reason for the cartoony-blue windows and the simple flame deco is because he's meant to look like the show.

    He's my favorite just because the parts that were gray on the animation model are gray, and most importantly, YELLOW SPOILER.

    I wonder how he'd look dyed in black.
