    I need Takara to get to Sunstorm ASAP. I am guessing he is going to be an exclusive though and hard to get :(

    I haven’t seen much beyond pictures but did come across 1 report on Facebook about the joints being improved but the owner said his copy still had a crack under the vertical stabilizer(not sure if it was on both sides).

    A few pages back, someone posted pictures of the feet/heels/ankles and it looks like the nozzle hinges are either unpainted or casted in that roughly textured plastic Hasbro/Takara sometimes uses that’s pretty sturdy(but I think doesn’t take paint well). It’s still early so within the week we’ll get a better idea of if the issues have been resolved for the most part.

    Is just me or do the rivets/pins/screws all look like they have a black finish to them. Probably looks better than if they were your typical silver finish.

    I know Starscream is described as “handsome”, but I feel that his Seeker brothers outshine him big time. :lol

    I agree. That grey color is not helping. Too dark. Even Thundercracker's grey looks more pleasing to the eyes.

    Think it's the opposite, they made the gray darker to prevent him from being completely "washed out" by the other two. Color wise Starscream with the grey or white isn't as dominant as Thundercracker blue or the black and purple of Skywarp. Think that's why they went with a very warm gray versus a "cooler" gray or white, normally the cooler color is saved for the contrast. Even Starscreams red isn't the Cherry or fire engine red we see on most of the cars is a lot cooler in comparison.

    This is the correct color for both. Teal for Skywarp, very light blue for Thundercracker. Anything else (silver, red, gray, white, whatever) is wrong as far as the animation designs are concerned.
