    Funny you bring that up as it's become a viscous cycle.

    I get married to rebel against being single, get divorced to rebel against marriage, get married again, single again and so on.

    It's exhausting.

    :inquisiti 

    You are perchance aware that there's no official Skyfire/Jetfire that is not "toon" based and extremely likely to never be toy based, right?

    Toon look all the way. MP Tracks didn't do it for me. I never thought of Tracks as having metallic paint, just always assumed it was like a gloss blue. I know C3s came in gloss red, but Transformers changed it from the Diaclone color, so they probably just chose a color that wasn't super prevalent in the line up. If I want something that looks like the original G1 toy, at this point I want a retro release.

    Both aren't perfect, but TTs rotated fenders look much better to me. They crucially put some blue 'metal' between the corner of the shin and the wheel on the side. The wheel jutting out in front without that looks jarringly off-model and toy-like to me. Wheel jutting out the back is also inaccurate but will rarely be seen.

    Totally disagree on your other point. Look at the animation model again - the lower leg tapers outwards from the knee, is widest about mid-shin where the wheel is, then tapers back inwards towards the ankle. The rotation on TTs doesn't really alter that too much.

    Always the funniest bloke on the boards! (Note that this is not in blue)

    Who was that? Robot Paradise (Fans Toys)?

    I'm just hoping the car mode is gloss or metallic instead of matte.

    Surprisingly, the blue used for the C3 Corvette was a metallic blue. Takara was pretty close with their color choice.

    What made Tracks stand out was that he was(the masterpiece) a collector's edition of the C3 Corvette with his custom paintjob. The collector's edition was only made in silver beige metallic. And had the special wheels seen on MP-25.

    If ST isn't going to do metallic paint, maybe some Tamiya TS-65 (Pearlescent Clear) might do the trick.

    I'm expecting a silhouette next to their Blaster at TFCon next weekend. Probably as a tease slide after they show us their Twincast...
