    So far the only one I want from the Classics that's not a deluxe! Maybe 'cause I never got Jetfire! Looks good!

    I was expecting this with HTS getting it in stock last week. I've got it ordered with 20% off and free shipping, so he's not worth hunting at this point. He certainly looks super awesome. He'll probably be a traitor and be a decepticon though since they need more numbers to bolster their ranks. (until I get universe Unicron! mwahahaha)

    edit: POST 1,000!

    WOOT WOOT!
    (does anyone say that anymore?)

    Dreaming...

    What I would love to see is this mold (with a new head) as Darkwing, to go along with BotCon Dreadwind. I may get Treadbolt and put decepticon stickers on him and pretend...

    Mine came from HTS today (10/6) after ordering it on 10/2. HTS has been QUICK for me.

    Only problem on mine was the turrets on the helmet were loose.

    im looking forward to this figure. ive been liking the classics repaints lately.

    EDIT: but they dont need to be repaints do they? who cares about non-movie movie toys? they've only been surprisingly okay because they dont look like knockoffs. still would prefer at least variations of original decos.

    Nice find. This toy looks great in package. It was not on my list to buy but now I will think about it, especially with the code at HTS.

    Wow, who'd a thunk us Utahns would be getting so lucky with all these new releases before anyone else.

    How's that Brown coloring mix with the Blue? It always looks kinda crappy to me in the pictures.

    i'm wondering that too. i think this one might spend a lot of time in jet mode. i think the brown looks alarming because people might still relate back to the conventions of robotech colorschemes. then again mixing the standard brown with a custom deco is the only thing you didnt see in robotech. its a reach but the brown is wierd for some reason.

    does the brown look as bad as it does in the promo pics? its pretty much the only thing thats keeping me from buying him, cause the classics jetfire mold is one of my favorites.

    Yeah, that's pretty sweet. I found one at my Walmart in Yuba City, California yesterday. I like the figure. The brown really doesn't bother me.
