    Damn. That Sky Dive is stunning. Not overly keen on the metallic paints but the sculpt is spot on.

    Wow, this guy looks amazing! The most impressive of Its Aerialbots so far IMO. Edit: Have we seen any of the other limbs in color yet? I could have sworn we've seen Air Raid but can't find any pics so maybe not.

    Also, anyone else have this weird bug where the pictures don't show up in the original post but do when you quote them in a reply? I still can't see them in @Cheem The Rup's or @eVac Z's posts.

    Not really feeling all these metallic paints on figures when most peoples collections are non-mettallic. Guess they sold too many x versions and just decided to do it for every figure. Opens the door for somebody to release Aerilbots that are toon colored.

    You’re right. Sky Dive. I seem to confuse them a bit!

    Agreed.
    And while they work on sorting out the finishes, let's get Jabber and Chomp delivered, please.

    Looks good but I'm not in on this set however will be keenly watching. It's interesting how there's been a sparked interest in FT's product because of how well received their RoadKing has been, about 5 or 6 or their bots threads are all on the third party front page.

    Roadking didn’t have much (any?) metallic paint but he does have that flecked metallic style plastic. It’s pretty subtle. I expect all the limb bots will have a consistent finish but it’s a waiting game!

    These combiners looks so good they can’t come soon enough! FansToys are stepping up.

    Roadking's black is metallic paint. But Brawn and Warpath and Skydive are all metallic

    Still think that 1 good bot [Roadking, by all accounts] does not necessarily mean that the company is back into their Dibots-era of engineering and fun to transform, but may invest in 1-2 bots from this set as an aeroplane enthusiast. If I can't stand their transformation I'll keep them in jet mode or worse case scenario, sell them on.

    It looks VERY patchy. That's part of the reason you never see a real F-16 in bare metal.

    Also---well, that's neither toon, toy, real-world, nor even comic-accurate coloring. That's like 0% of the fandom's preference I believe.

    Hmm... Don't really like the metallic colouring. It kinda breaks up the figure in a way. Please go back to flat colours... especially the face.

    Wow. I wasn't thinking about getting Aerialbots, and now I am. That Skydive is absurdly cool. Damn't FT.

    I like everything about that Skydive except the color of the face. All they need to do is make it the same color that they already used on Terminus and I'd be happy.

    I can't see the Air raid pictures.

    Skydive looking good.
    I always thought he was grey in robot mode and not black. Like that picture of the cartoon.
    I had the G1 of Skydive and Air raid.
    Skydive was dark grey and Air raid was black from what i remember.

    Lucky you.
    For me it's like this.
    Why buy Zeta Airialbots when Jujian version is almost the same.
    Go for cheap or go for the best.
    Fanstoys will be the best. :D 

    I have ordered cw airialbots KO version for 30 bucks.
    I'll have fun with these till FT version is complete. :p 

    The most important question is: in how many years will FT complete their Stunticons and Airialbots?
    Now Roadking is already here, i hope they complete it in 2 years. 2 limbs per year.

    That's why I have Zeta for combined mode and may get FT for individual bots. ;)
