    It was basically so pilots could see their runway before takeoff/landing without sacrificing the aerodynamic shape of the nose for supersonic flight. If she were built today, she'd probably just have those sensor cameras modern civilian cars have on their bumpers instead. Airliners today seem to be heading for "minimal pilot effort" designs, which can be argued as being good and bad...

    I'll get it out of the way....

    Alts aren't in scale! Call the wahhhhmbulance!

    *straightens shirt*

    He looks awesome. Hopefully this means he's moving into mass production. Dem Autobots need some titan backup.

    Regards faceplate. Milliput and a few minutes. 24 hours later small brush and a pot of dark gunmetal. Voila.

    I never cared about scale regarding the Aerialbots. Silverbolt would look pretty stupid if they tried to make him mass-shift for vehicle mode and still integrate as the torso, partsforming or not. Plus this is supposed to be MP, so they wouldn't dare change him to a Blackbird like TFC over something that silly.

    Anyway yeah, these flybois are looking pretty ace. :rock

    Absolutely. Same with Bruticus (and Defensor to a lesser extent) who'd look even sillier but it still doesn't stop ppl complaining about it.

    The easiest solution to scale issues with combiners is to just change a few vehicle modes. Thing is, MP is not the place for that. I don't even collect MP, (this guy is for my chug shelf) but I still think it'd be stupid to change someone's alt-mode on an MP-style bot for the sake of vehicle scale when that isn't even a factor for official Masterpiece figures.

    Did they mention if they're going to include the toon heads for Air Raid and Fireflight with Silver Arrow?

    I don’t know why I stopped getting notifications on this thread. Silver arrow is looking great.

    Yeah, Silver Arrow does look great. I actually like the yellow they chose. I also hope he releases soon as there has been quire a "bot drought" this year.

    Not really, at least for G1 MP. Nothing like the last two years. I haven't gotten a figure in months.

    Yeah, it's definitely a plus on that front but I'm looking forward to getting some cool new stuff and to continue to have things to look forward to. I can't wait to have a Zeta-scale Autobot combiner finally.

    Yeah. Factions gotta be consistent when you’re making large boys. They gotta do defensor next for sure. Maybe do menasor as well and do a similar two time release combiner.

    Sorry, but how tall / wide was Zeta Onslaught (torso) in bot mode? That is all i see as dimension reference, so wanted to get an idea on my shelf for Zeta Silverbolt.

    I don't care about alt mode scaling. I don't see how anyone into G1 can without all sorts mental gymnastics to create all sorts of exceptions. People don't seem to realize just how much bigger than a Datsun an F-15 really is.

    That said, I think Silver Arrow's bot mode is too big. Fortunately that's not why I'm going to buy him...
