    The insect wing patterns on the top of the jet wings & tailfins are a nice touch, but I wish the patterns were included on the underside of the wings as well.

    had these three been any other color scheme, I would have not been interested. Count me in the group who wants this color scheme because of the show.

    it was probably a lack of the name being covered by Hasbro still, so this was the next best thing... or, like #14 on the list of next best things.

    eh, that'd be a TON of paint.

    I'm thinking he's the weakest, a new head could've helped, but I'd rather have a new combiner head.

    So,,,,,,, got a question, you have to be a club member to preorder the non attending package of this set , right ?

    Not a big fan of this years club membership figure. Not interested in it in any way shape or form, is there a way to swap it for a NOVA PRIME CLUB EXCLUSIVE TOY ?

    If not, then when do they show next years club exclusive ? after botcon ? or before ?

    Much more likely that it's just a typo. The image name is correct, and the teaser post yesterday had the correct name.

    I don't like the all red head. It would have been nice to have the face is silver or a darker red than the rest of the head. However if I end up getting this He'll be in combine mode most of the time os it's not that bid of a deal.

    Really like the altmode deco. Evocative of the original toy without being too beastial (as these ARE supposed to be PRE-Earth designs, after all)

    I hope the face and head are different shades of red though.

    I really dig this design. It's a solid mold in the first place, and I like how they managed to make him mostly red without looking like a boring block. Still not a fan of the concept of "OH EVERYTHING HAS TO BE COMBINERS" in general, but I like this guy on his own merits- I especially dig the patterns on his wings.

    Okay, well, he has insect-wing details on his wings.... I'm happy, that's what I wanted. Can't complain. :) 

    While I initially said a red aerialbot would be boring (and I still think that, in a general sense), I actually like the look of this guy. Simple, but it works.

    BM Silverbolt - Prime BH Dreadwing
    Magnaboss - Tigatron (from Ravage), Optimus Primal, Ironhide, Prowl, and Silverbolt

    He looks infinitely better than Ramhorn in terms of color balance. High hopes for Sea Clamp...

    I'm guessing they got at least the feet as they'd look somewhat like how Tripredacus stood on Sea Clamp's clawa

    Victorion's combined sword would probably on the table, too, if they managed to get her hands and feet. That sword in red and black would be f-ing amazing.

    ETA: Obviously, I'm jumping way past conclusions on this one, but I just want to see that sword in red and black now
