    I like the robot mode of the Hasbro one and am willing to see if it can be transformed differently from what we've seen. The hinges to do so are there, just need to see if the movement is blocked.

    Dude, you know what, you’re right. That figure should have been a Chevy Trax. To me making a repaint to just fool the fans is Bullshit. They did the same thing with Zeus Nitro/KSI Boss. I thought at least Hasbro could have made the head correct, but nope! Honestly that figure should have been a proper SAAB jet mold (Scale be damned) and there is your Zeus Nitro.

    Going back the Paganis, if SS couldnt do a proper Chevy Trax, then figure should not have been made. It’s a figure that’s based on a minor figure anyways. Should have been red and be done with it. Oh wait, Hasbro did do that. We got a proper Stinger in SS. Okay, back to my main point. Blitzwing is a disappointment because the firue was not given a proper jet mold that was even close to a real world/movie vehicle. It is a shame. Same thing happened to Shatter, but at least her “Harrier” mode looks like a Harrier (even though some don’t agree it is) because in the film Shatter was a Harrier.

    I really wish some of the designers were on here and could explain why the inaccuracies in the Jet modes in Figures from the actual films. It would be nice to hear the other side so we can understand this a bit better. I love my SHatter figure. I love the crazy custom kit version that is the Harrier jet mode.

    DUDE, John The Destroyer, thank you so much for this post! You absolutely nailed it X100! That was exactly my intent, including the bit about me being Snarky. That is so true. Awesome when other people “Get It”.

    Alright at this point it's okay to not agree but let's disagree without resorting to throwing shade, thanks.

    Holy shit, they ruined the color scheme.

    Some of that blue paint on top of the jet mode could have been applied on his head instead ffs.

    Edit: did they retool the gray shoulder bits? Those behind his head

    Gonna wait and see if the white head is another grey fist thing and the initial product pics are just wrong in that department.

    This...isn't the final paint job, right? Because it literally looks like they're about to ship out bare plastic.

    I know the colors are all over the place but i honestly love to see for a change a seeker design with a helmet the color of the body, and yes, i know this will be controversial but i prefer this jet mode over the accurate f-4 phantom of the film it makes it easier to think of it as a seeker , because obvious reasons

    I'd like to second this with this:

    With Prime it even extends to his CGI render.

    I truly hope that is not the final paint job or I will have to wait for an inevitable repaint/retool as Statscream or another Seeker. :(

    I'm loving Blitzwing! And to think I was gonna skip it out and stick with the 3A version.
