So many paint apps that I'm gonna be stripping off this thing. The reflector graphics, the tailfin picture of a seeker with soundwave with "sonicboom", the stuff around the cockpit, and the designs ontop of the intakes that are based on the old G1 stickers.

I think they all look extremely stupid.

I'll probably be painting all the silver plastic actual silver, so he matches skywarp.
Here's a list of stuff I'm looking for!

Yeah, I hear you. I think people will take off different apps. I actually like the ones you mention. The reflector is weak decal for me as well.

I am hoping the tail fin is molded in black, that would be sweet!

Even if it isn't, black on black is literally the easiest thing in the world to paint. just mask off everything but the stuff you want to get rid of, and blast with spray paint.

I got two other mp TC so I am not sure what I will do yet. I may just sell the Takara one and package up the custom and use this one as my main one. Not sure yet. But getting this regardless.

Not sure yet I want to paint him. Paint has it's own issues.

Are the military names by the cockpit in reference to anything?

Maybe I'm mistaken, but shouldn't the Decepticon logos be upside down in robot mode?

Well, Joe Kyde is a Hasbro deco artist, but I have no idea who the other name is.

I'm buying this.

Don't like the happy face.

Don't care for the Seeker robot image on the jet fins.
