rikkuluverx2
aw man, thought he'd be movie colors...but still looks good, but a pass for me.
Triceradon
Why, hello there, Shattered Glass Jetfire.

Oh, if I only had the funds to buy such a beautiful looking toy.
Robogeek28
Looks like that could be a nice fig.
Bumblethumper
Fantastic colour scheme.

for some reason I was expecting a sort of misguided ROTF homage.
Orion_Prime48

Repaint of the Year.

Hey, Hasbro has repainted the Ultra figures to death, its only fair Takara does the same.

So, who is this suppose to be? Jetfire in black looks pretty cool.
Alung
It's around $40 I believe and shouldn't preorder be up already? It's 1 pm 11/12/09 in Japan. Website says it is coming out March, 2010.
Scythe
Nice.
Deadpool.
Just to correct it:


DARK SKYFIRE

Destron (Decepticon) Scientific Officer
Alt Mode: Super Jet, Battle-Up Mode
Weapon: Missile Launcher, Photon beam, Heat-Seeking Missile, Laser Cannon

He is the Skyfire who worked for the pre-Destron corp million of years ago and wears a special coating all over his body to prevent unknown virus and magnetic storm during outerspace explorations.

As a scientist it is troubled by its high combat abilities.

In Superjet mode, he can travel around half the Earth in 30minutes.


Preorder deadline: December 11, 2009 (Fri) Noon
Release: approx March 2010


Note: Final Product may differ from images.

Price: ¥3,675 / USD41 / 43CAD


Edited.

Oooooh! But I'm pretty sure I can live without it... (if he was translucent, that would have been an entirely different matter... )
Primeconvoy1
That's a nice looking repaint! The fact that I really like this mold makes this a buy for me.
Prime Evil
consider this guy BOUGHT!!

It's limited all right, but how limited depends on those pre-ordering it within the time allowed (11/12 to 12/11) and how many they want to order (maximum number unspecified), so that limited number could be really big or kind of big

I guess I should put my order in today since it is the 12th now.

Strangely appealing, easily passable.

I was gonna say, the newspost says end of 2010, isn't that like in a year lol? Kinda left field, I'll stick with Classics Jetfire though.
Batman
I want this.
G1Prowl
So can someone do a Yen to Dollars conversion here? And is this going to be one of those things where only Japanese can order it?
Blackout32
This has my attention for sure. I will wait till it shows up on E-tail before I get it though.
Bgrngod
Oooh! Nice. That mold is awesome. That particular paint job on that mold is really awesome.
Transfan2
I think the Destron Skyfire/Jetfire looks pretty cool and I love how the silver/black/purple goes together in a neat (evil) fashion.

Want. And they aren't doing a crazy mark-up.

You can type "3675 yen to usd" on Google. As Alung mentioned it's going for about US$40.

Looks like they did a great job referencing Shattered Glass and Revenge of the Fallen with this redeco.

I take back what I said before. $40 for an exclusive? Sign me up!

Now the question is how do I get it...
ORIO
Wow!!! I dig it, it looks awesome, but I don't need it.

What makes me excited? A NEW henkei figure repaint.

Please bring on Grapple and Swindle.

This is great news.
hanypa
I think it would pass as Darkwing. Does anyone else see it? Maybe they figured since they can't do any of the Botcon figures (Dreadwind) they might as well do his counterpart. Either way, they would look great next to each other on the shelf!
QmTablit
Nice as that is, unless it's meant to be more than just "Dark" Skyfire, I just may pass.
Foster
Now THIS is a Storm Cloud homage.
Dr Wheeljack
I want this jetfire.

*Looks up Storm Cloud on tfwiki*

Fuck! I'm sold.

Now to figure out how to get one...
MrFX
This will be bought if it's the right price.

Just to clarify (cuz I think someone else said Ultra too) this is a voyager mold

Also, Black Convoy, Black Jetfire, Black :taco
Phoenix Blaze
Why is everyone saying Ulra? Sure his "armoured" mode is a bit heftier, but isn't he just Voyager?

Also....HOLY SHIT! Now that's a repaint! Showing once again, that just about any Transformer looks waaaay better in the grey/purple/black/silver deco. Now, if I can snag him for around 40 or so, he'll be mine.

^Maybe it's cuz I'm a little drunk, just getting home from a concert. But this just made me laugh my balls off.

Btw. I really want this Jetfire/Skyfire. Too bad itll be a huge pain to get. Black makes everything infinitely more kick ass.
firehawc_69
I hope he's available at TRU in Japan, cause....yoink!
