I'm actually not sure what to think about this guy - epic blue/ugly tats throws me all kinds of off.

I dig it. If possible, can you put up pics of the tailfin decos and a better shot of whatever is written on the cockpit piece under the "Dragon" pilot label?

Well, there are two things you could do with this figure without having to wait for the Takara version:

1. Rubbing Alcohol. This usually does the trick in removing Hasbro paint apps, although not a good idea if the deco being rubbed off is also on paint covering a completely different colored piece (I.E. Tailfins), since the alcohol will take everything.

2. Reprolabels. It's almost a guarantee that they'll make a set for this guy that removes the extra decos.

^ I was just going to say that.

If anything, my biggest complaint is the Refelctor image... it seems very out of place.

Yeah, I was thinking about the rubbing alcohol. only problem is that it will take off the black as well.

However, you can remove a majority of those painted apps with no issues. It's just the ones that have paint under them that will be a problem.

The sonic Boom app doesn't really bug me that much - actually kinda like it to be honest.

The nose cone and shoulder apps bug me way more. I'm debating just getting rid of those.

What's the chances they will re-release Skywarp and Starscream using this mold.

Yeah, reflector should have been the accessory.
