Took apart the front landing gear and compacted the spring a bit. Now the bay door closes completely with the landing gear retracted.
First pics of the box for zb01 c/o weibo
So he does have the facemask option in combined mode.
I hope it's an option and not a design change

Agreed. This is gonna be my toy version so I'd prefer the face.
Uh, the pictures make me glad that fly fire has double jointed elbows but pissed that Superion's bend less than 90 degrees.
Nice. Hopefully the toon heads come with the other Aerialbots.
Pic looks like it can still bend more to make 90degrees. Wait until the reviews hit.
I will review as soon as I get him. Hoping chosen prime is one of the first to get him
...everywhere says "January". Do we know when in January?
This may be a stupid question, but...
Is there any consensus on the proper way to position the autobot logos on the wings of the aerialbots? (...top of symbol towards nose or towards tail...?)
Um.. I've only seen them with the top toward the tail and that's the way I did mine. One person isn't a consensus but there you go.
If you're the only one to answer the question, then you are the consensus.
My preference is the other way. That's why my seekers always have upside down logos in bot mode.
I have mine with the top of the head towards the front of the plane.
In robot mode I have the main wings on the legs like the G1 toy so the badges are right side up.
Zeta, why you no show more aerialbots?
I had a chance to open my Air Strike the other day...
Initial thoughts are that he is nice for a $58 bot. He has the right proportions, the right scale, and more or less right look to fit in with an MP collection. I'm kind of on the fence though whether I'd prefer to pay another $20 and get some diecast and/or premium paint finish in the figure.
Something that BSF mentioned in one of his videos is that he'd prefer to pay more for a better product than less for a crappier one. I totally am feeling that way as well with my collection as I continue to run out of space and am finding myself less excited about some of the figures I've amassed.
I'm still in for the set - just saying, the wow factor for Air Strike just isn't the same as when I opened up FT Koot or even the X2Toys Sky Guardian. Both figures that are very hefty and just ooze quality.
Gotta ask yourself if diecast is gonna be good for the combined mode. Sure, in the leg bots die cast would be fine, but then, do you want 2 of 5 bots with diecast? A 2 ft tall combiner will have enough challenges without having to balance the extra weight above the waist.
Has anyone done diecast in any combiner, yet? I only have TFC Hercules and TW Constructor to compare, other than HasTak CW/UW.
Valid point on the paint apps.
Assuming you are comparing to the FT offer, also consider whether FT will actually deliver and complete Superior anytime soon. At least with this set, 1 bot is out with another expected this month. FT is only showing renders at this point. I'm not a FT hater, either, I have and love many of their figures. Just think I can enjoy a complete MP scaled Zeta Supes for a long while before FT can offer the same.
Actually zeta has said silverbolt will have diecast
