This looks great. I have them all on pre order at show z, but I’m trying to not like them so I can cancel my pre orders and spend the money on something else. But wow, they look good.
We need a medic. MEDIC!!!
This looks cool but I can't find room in my collection for them. Looks like what Bayformers should've been.
This will look sick next to TFC's new military bots.
Looks amazing, kinda like a shattered glass version. Looks more like a deception then an autobot with those menacing red eyes.
Like that they went low vis on the paint scheme while keeping only accent parts metallic.
F*ck. I have no love for the aerialbots but these pics are FIERCE!
Looks great, but doesnt say Slingshot to me.
It only shares an altmode.
Maybe if it had more white and a G1-ish head.
Ah, I just noticed that just under the turbines in bot mode, that area is transparent. I also see there is some additional/changes to the foot area.
I LOVE how this is looking! Personally, I love the color scheme, specifically for bot and alt mode display purposes. I'll definitely be in for two of each. If they make a G1 color scheme set, I'll go in for that to display in combined mode.
I'm really hoping they include the more G1 head along with this new one, though.
looks ok, still dislike that they didn't figure out its not a twin engine jet. wings need to droop a bit more too althoug at lesat its not straight out like other TF harriers.
It's funny because it looks like a super-serious Bay bot that turns in to a chibi chunkster jet.
G1 this, G1 that...
A G1 head wouldn't fit that body, the current head is more appropriate imo.
Hmm, I wonder if they also went ahead and gave new head design for all the members and Superion.
Was just curious if a bit of orange paint would satisfy the "head not G1 enough" camp. I'm not investing the time in repainting it white, as I think it looks great in silver, but the digital head repaint only took a minute.
Extra bit of color does give him more character
Why would they give him a G1 head when the entire figure isn't G1?
Maybe they'll do a "g1 inspired" repaint down the line with different headsculpts.
I may repaint the eyes from red to blue, but beyond that I'm quite happy with what I see, and am eager for the first release.
No idea, though I do like it when homages are faithful to key traits of the original character. For example, the silver skin is fine with me. But while I like the design of the revised head sculpt, the colors are pretty generic. Given that the original Slingshot had a distinctly orange head and face, simply adding some color really makes him stand out as that character. The silver head they've shown could very well belong to Air Raid.
Overall, these designs are looking fan-friggin-tastic and I like the liberties they've taken with the designs. Fanstoys has already delivered on animation-accurate figures that didn't interest me in the slightest. If Dreamstar deviates with the colors, I don't mind adding some paint to finish them off to my satisfaction. Depending on the pricing, these are an almost guaranteed purchase for me.
Lookin' good. Still haven't seen any preorders up for this for any American relatilers tho.
