    Looks very cool. Not my cup of tea, so to speak, but it really looks great, hope it's affordable for those who want it.

    I don't really understand where the fascination with a "Dark Jetfire" comes from. I know Jetfire (ahem, Skyfire) was originally a Scientist, friends with Starscream, but I'm ignorant as to where the origin of this black-colored, evil version comes from. Is it something comic-related?

    Skywarpfire.

    That's OK, I have Jetfire, and I have Skywarp, so I'm good. :)

    Your being far too Hasbro in your thinking. This is Tak/To, where they do funky colour schemes that have less than nothing to do with any tie-in media. This is just a "what-if Skyfire joined the 'cons" redeco. Not much more.

    Although I did find this on a TF wiki.

    Put a few repro shattered glass 'bot symbols and it's a perfect SG Skyfire.

    I actually preferred the lighter coloration (as originally shown). However, I'm not getting it anyway, so it's not like I really care.

    Too bad they didn't go for a Dreadwind repaint, I can't afford the BotCon one...

    I don't get it. It's not a Shattered Glass character, so all I see is a slightly more expensive Classics figure from a few years ago repainted with Skywarp colors and smacked with 'Dark' in front of his name.

    Easy pass, being I've already got the original deco and the BotCon Dreadwind.

    Sadly enough though, he looks better with Skywarp colors than the new retail MP Skywarp..
