    Seriously. I wasn't expecting to like them as much as I did, either. While the repainting got a little old after a while, they really did a great making a lot of good, stable molds. The Perfect Effect upgrades really make them pop, too. The only criticism I really had that I was never able to fix was the crappy docking ports on the chests of the Optimus/Motormaster molds.

    I think this will be a partsformer, given that Zeta's designs are apparently "derived" from Toyworld's. I'm expecting partsforming hands, feet, and robot pants, with no altmodes or uses for those parts. Annoying, but not a dealbreaker for me, especially at the prices being offered on these guys.

    Well done Zetatoys, I was already in for this set but these pics just put the nail in.

    Looking forward to the colored images, I assume its going to follow the toy color scheme with a touch of Zeta judging by there first release AirStrike.

    But going to have to email Zetatoys and hope there has been enough request to include a optional mouth plate for Superion.

    Except, those aren't pics of the Concorde, which was the pic-poster's point.

    THAT's what it reminds me of--mosquito is very descriptive. Ignoring the droop/hinge---that is absolutely not how a Concorde nose is shaped. Seriously, it's a simple shape----how does one get it so wrong? It shouldn't pinch/curve in like that at all. Both Zeta and FT seem to have done so much work to make the nose so wrong. Why can $4 Matchbox toys get it right and these guys can't? The nose cone itself doesn't transform, it can easily be "the shape it should be". It's "the plane's face"----it changes the whole look when it's off.

    I was gonna say bbts cuz that's where I ordered him a few days ago and they just shipped but it looks like they're out now. Glad I didn't wait any longer. I kinda get the feeling that people were waiting to see Silverbolt and once the pics were shown, a lot more probably ordered Air Raid.

    Looks like @rubadubspawn still has him. Check his thread here.

    I think he was talking about the FansToys Superion.
    Zeta's is definitely a partsformer.
    Any info on Flyfire's release date?
    Alternatively, netclow on eBay (link above somewhere) or Show.Z. But rub is good to go with.

    Only thing I can think of, other than people at Zeta having a weird aesthetic taste, is that maybe the nosecone folds into some very narrow space and they had to shave every mm.

    I got mine from bbts but it looks like they're out of stock now....

    I must say, I received mine on Sunday and I really like it. It's a little light weight wise, leg form seems like a rock, and I really like both alt and bot mode.

    Alt mode is a bit big scale wise, but it's a fair sacrifice for hopefully an awesome combined mode.....

    Why not? Partsforming is the only way to get the best bot / alt / combined modes. Let the haters who only care about storage and one mode cry all they want, this is for their own good!

    It was a joke about how it's already been brought up multiple times and that the FansToys Superion thread very quickly went to shit, especially with people defending them going "NO, FANSTOYS ARE PERFECT, THEY DON'T NEED PARTSFORMING HIPS, DON'T YOU WORRY, THEY WON'T HAVE THEM."

    It'd be amusing if it didn't give you an aneurism just from looking at the thread.

    Alt mode matches size of official seekers though, does it not? How does that seem too big?

    I know it's certainly not perfect, but tried my hand at coloring one of the images of Silver Arrow. Since peeps were wondering. I didn't have time to go over all the white, but I think the off-white/gray that's already in the image is actually OK with the color scheme.
