    Don't think these have been posted. Fully painted mock-up from the fans hobby website.

    Oh yeah that looks really good just on his own. Looks like they are really pushing this through quickly.

    It seems to me FH Armada jetfire's design is better than the FH Overload. It just looks better.

    Looks more true to the original. Overload had quite a bit of diversion from the 02 toy from what I saw

    This is like, weirdly faithful for a FansHobby project. At least, for vehicle and robot mode. The only thing that seems to be missing is how the chest should open up into winglets to cover his shoulders.

    What did change though is that he's bigger in relation to Prime. Jetpants mode is just his legs again (with the shins slightly telescoped out), combined Energon-style. Probably couldn't figure out a way to make his arms into the thighs and give the legs proper articulation.

    I'm interested in getting this, but I'm more worried I'm going to break it. May not have been my fault but Galva-tyranno's rachets broke on me.

    I think I might wait for the powerlinx deco but this is looking great.
    Anyone know how long it was after the initial releases we got the powerlinx decos for Prime and Megs?

    I await the “Astrotrain” purple deco that would work with their Purple Naval Commander. Same with an SG Overload.

    And maybe a Spacewarp exclusive?

    Just tossing that out there.

    Astrotrain and spacewarp are the same toy, it'd just be a matter of swapping heads around as far as I can recall

    They're different shades of purple, but yeah pretty similar. Suppose it comes down to how much FansHobby wants to milk the mould for.

    We do have 4-5 power base redecos. It's just a matter of when.

    Who knows, maybe they'll split the difference and make the purple a shade between either

    There is no reason for two seperate releases. One release with both heads would suffice.

    Yeah.

    even someone who is 100 about Spacewarp and 0 about Astro, them being one release that is on the Astro side with just a head swap is more than enough for me.
