    The "brown" looks more bronze to me, and I like the blue/yellow/bronze scheme; it was hot on the showcar circuit for a bit :)

    The brown in only upper arms and thighs, and the bottom back half of the thrusters. It doesn't bother me at all, and looks good with the dark yellow pinstriping on chest. Blends well. The missiles are also brown, but because of Translucency look dark amber color. The flow of brown on upper arms flowing into black and gray on lower arms and arm cannons/hands looks better to me than the white/black/red on jetfire with his blue missiles.

    Black on top of head, on down past ears towards chinguard (all black) Yellow antennae and small stripe of yellow at chin area, on chinguard. Blue face, same blue as body. Brown eyes with brown lightpiping, same as missile brown, appears dark amber. His removable helmet has same dark brown eyeslits, silvery brown helmet with black stripe running down the middle like a mohawk. Black antennae/quad lasers and two yellow spots on each side of helmet frontcorners.

    Good looking face and helmet combo. The gray parts on his body are gray molded bits, the helmet is actually painted the silvery gray and is much nicer finish.

    He's only 15. And you know how when you're a kid, the time between Christmas and your birthday seems like FOREVER? It's like that.

    <3 Knooky! :D
