Why is it now I can never view eBay auctions? I'm getting tired of this qkrsv shit.
Some of those paint apps just seem a little off. For instance the abruptly ending white on Skywarp's cockpit/chest piece that just doesn't continue down the fuselage logically. Excellion's golden flames just seem a little weird to me. Oddly enough I think I like Skywarp more now and I just look cock-eyed at Exellion though they both might end up decorating my headboard with the others.
Skywarp is nigh offensively ugly. Truely horrid, and the worst paint scheme in Cybertorn by some way.
Man Skywarp is hiddeous. Even assuming the wings aren't supposed to bent like that... yuck. Might pass on him after all.
Excellion superior, Skywarp inferior.
Excillion is worth the money to purchase. Skywarp is so disgusting. It is not worth the money for that repaint. I really hate that mold for Skywarp and Thundercracker.
Excellion looks pretty dandy. I think I'll pass on Skywarp.
I did not realize this, so it makes sense from a technical standpoint.
That said, blue wings are just wrong with that color scheme. Knowing the deal with the sprue, I would've personally chosen to go with yellow wings over blue windows. It's not accurate either way, but the blue wings just CLASH.
Still wondering if a wing swap would be practical ...
They should have used the GF Starscream mold for Skywarp
Personally, I think they should have just painted the wings, instead of keeping them clear. I'll probably paint the wings on mine, once I get one. But, I mostly just want one to have some one to serve as Hot Rod in my photo comics.
Its more or less practical, with patience. Allinging the springs properly on reassembly is the hardest part. It's very fiddly but doable.
Yah, what Cloudraker said. No thrills though on either.
You don't have a *real* Hot Rod? Homages are nice, but they're never the same. You should be able to find the TFC Hot Rod with Targetmaster.
*sighs @ Skywarp* So, I guess they are making him this way...
Excellion looks cool, but I like the orange parts on the GF version, rather than the blue and gray parts on the Cybertron.
Excellion will look super-great with the blue windows and Hot Shot's yellow gun and fins. I suspect that Hot Shot will also look improved with his yellow windows and Excellion's blue gun and fins.
I don't care enough about the character to put forth that kind of effort. I have no love for Autobots, who collude with Decepticon leaders. >_>
I thought the current TF:TM conspiracy theory had Hot Rod colluding with Starscream to allow Prime and Megatron to wipe each other out and take over their respective factions and wear fabulous lavender capes and flaming orange decos.
Or maybe I see gay robots plotting against me everywhere. Does that me paranoid?
Ignore the bent tailfins on Skywarp. Remember the test shots of Thundercracker? Those had bent wings too.
Unfortunately, that knowledge that they probably won't be bent like that rectifies only about 10% of what's wrong with him.
