    Agreed. I got Lumitent for $160 thankfully, which is absolutely worth it to me. $200 might’ve been pushing it; $240 seems reasonable(ish) for this one if it’s made with the same quality and is larger

    Even at the crazy $240 price point, I am going to have a hard time resisting this.

    What happened to the pelvic turret? How did they hide it since this stage?

    I really like how this guy is starting to look. The crotch turret was my main turn-off and it's been gone for a sec.

    Very odd that the black-gold scheme gets released first. I suppose the more realistic color scheme(something Lumitent's first release) like will the the repaint for this? Love that effect on the windows, but the Black-gold is really clashing too much with the plain grey and unpainted weapons.

    This has such a great alt mode.

    It looks great. If the first release is the black and gold version then it I'll pre order it.

    It's strange the attachments and hands aren't painted. I assume they will be painted in the final product.

    I could be wrong, but I believe that the real-world J-20 jet is usually the grey camo colour that the original Lumitent toy was painted up as [top].

    J-20s are also available in black (though less common), hence the repaint. [second picture].

    However with the Z-10 helicopter, they mostly come in black [third picture], with the variant being a brown camo [bottom].

    So presumably the repaint will be camo like the 4th picture below?

    As wonderful as expensive. It will be another pass due to skyrocketing of prices during last year...

    Great looking bot and a better looking alt-mode. Black and gold and the multi-coloured windows. So neat and tidy. Purple Decepticon symbol would look good on it. Nicely done.

    @TransformerFanatic it's just one of 2 things, iridescent coating, either applied by liquid or wrap
    This combined with prismatic plastic is the next thing/fad in furnitures :D
