    So I bit the bullet...

    I typically just "trust the source."
    For whatever that is worth. Though sometimes I DO wonder... I mean it's not hard to remove factory paint apps, it's why I prefer the Ivory or gray or crazy color test shots over final color test shots.

    Incase any other prototype collectors want to come and share I created a page that I'll be posting all my updates and such to and hope others are interested enough in doing the same. Since photo bucket is a piece of shit now I decided to go with a Facebook page.

    SUPER late reply, but a Takara Skywarp would go well in there, since the colors were so different from the US version...

    Ah, original, with the seller I bought from, double stuffed costs a whole lot of extra.

    So this happened... Even though it has the "not for sale" stamp in the correct area, it has a prime head with silver paint, blue nemesis prime windows, teal accented windvane, and a shattered glass bumper? Is this hodgepodge legit?

    I think it's a testshot for the Hasbro release. I'm trying to remember if my testshot had a blue head or not, I want to say my head was just unpainted teal....but I do remember it had the spray painted bumper.

    Anyone know the story on the burgundy Cheetor?

    Also since I've asked around like eveywhere but here, if anyone knows where I can acquire a TM2 Ramulus (or Universe Longhorn) test shot, I'd be mighty thankful ;)

    Oh cool! That makes the most sense and all, didn't know if this was a planned running change that they scrapped or something lol.
    Thanks!

    Is there an online archive somewhere with pics of gray TF prototypes? I'm fascinated by those and I don't know why...
