    As always, black and purple go together perfectly. This is way better than the gray that was introduced months back.

    Usual caveat - my Japanese is a mite rusty:

    GENTEI! GENTEI! TRANSFORMERS
    DARK SKY FIRE
    Function:"Scientific Investigator"
    CHANGE: Superjet、"Battle up mode"

    Motto: "How much longer can I continue to wear the clothing of a scientist..." (Ish...)

    ABILITY: The form Skyfire used when he worked with the Destrons hundreds of years before they became an army. Devoted entirely to outer space exploration, his frame is coated in a special layer which protects him from hazards such as unknown viruses and magnetic storms.

    CHARACTER: While on the one hand his spirit of scientific inquiry is quite strong, he is torn by the knowledge that quite against his will he also possesses formidable combat capabilities.

    WEAPON: Photon Missile Launchers, Particle Beams, Heat-Seeking Missiles, Laser Cannon

    *EDIT: Wow - I'm an idiot. That took me FAR too long to figure out...*

    I wanted to buy this figure so much, but recent photos have put me off. Is it me or is there just too much black around? Well, I will wait for some better "less-flashy" photos.

    Meanwhile, "Feverish Knowledge Missiles" are the best weapons ever.

    Yep. I'm an idiot - much research revealed to me what should have been obvious all along: they're "netsu" "kanchi" missiles - Netsu as in "Temperature", not "fever" (though, it means both), and "kanchi" as in "sensing". Heat-seeking missiles.

    Gotta love Japanese.

    The pun on the Henkei line. Gentei means Exclusive. It's part of the same line they just use that for most of their exclusives.

    "Limited" usually "ban" follows it, making the final reading "limited edition."

    Too late. My head-fiction is already in place. The young, eager Skyfire used missiles because he was very excited to learn what they would do to their targets.


    "FOR SCIENCE!"

    *BWWOOOOOMM*

    "... neato!"
