    Are the new feet and chest rectangles dark purple or dark gray?

    Darker beige always reminds me of the color of poop, Blitzwing does not deserve that kind of fate.

    Their second attempt and it's still missing some needed paint apps.

    I wish the purple had a bit less blue in it. Just feels a bit too dark

    Not sure about the arm (and the other body parts) tbh, but the hand seems corrected now and it matches the purple in the arm. The original version seems to have 2 different tones.

    Something that I like about Star Toys Blitzwing (which I'm looking at as I'm typing this) is its gorgeous shade of pale beige. It reminds me of the color of bone. In tank mode, when he's mostly the beige color, there's something skull-like about its appearance.

    Looking at the new darker beige colors, it looks like someone left their Blitzwing in the sun too long. Yikes.

    If you're talking about the blue marked part, then I think you might've misunderstood the transformation.

    It's not that the green marked part slides down, but that the entire red marked part slides up for robot mode. If you don't, then the wings and shoulder pads won't line up and you can't tab them in.

    They slide together for the alt modes though (the dark parts are the top of the wings of the jet, but they're hidden inside the tank).

    The new one has two-tone purple in plane mode.

    I feel the original beige is too light, but I'll take it than the new one. It's too easy for beige to be a shade too dark and look muddy yellow.

    I'll damned.... I have the preorder at SZ, bit I'm not sure about the darker Beige on this reissue. I'm hoping that this is just one of those cases where it looks too dark on the photos, and OK in hand, but I'll be up for a swap with someone (based in Europe) who has the first release and prefers this one, as long as it's complete and in optimum condition.

    I'm in the UK and would be up for a swap like that. The original is much too pale to me!

    I'm from Portugal, and it would be a hard to avoid customs and import taxes. Unless someone knows a secure way to avoid those.

    why did i drop in on this thread when i'm happy with mine already!??! now i realize i could be happier with the color he always shoulda been (i think of this as a toy accurate redeco as teh toon was pretty damn pale). Anyone want a paler "toon" one? I would trade in an instant. haha.

    I like the less glossy look of the reissue but this is only filling the spot til Fans Toys releases theirs so I’m not going to double dip on this.
