I am amazed by how... Blaster... that Blaster looks... Far better than the last time a Soundwave mold was used to make Blaster. I cannot wait to add him to my shelf (to replace that previously mentioned Soundwave repaint)

Blaster looks pretty amazing. I only hope Hasbro's looks nearly this good. It's amazing what a slight remold can do. And the size difference when compared to WFC Soundwave is actually kinda reminiscent of the G1 toys. I'll still be picking up FoC Soundwave for the gimmick (and Laserbeak), but it does give me a case for keeping the deluxe. All these versions of the same character in different size classes are really messing with the organization of my collection. :S

Skywarp looks nice. I do wish he had more black but he still looks pretty great. I doubt I will be willing to pay import prices for him still though.

Oh, and I've said it before, but I still think the Ravage/Steeljaw mold looks more like a honey badger. :lol:

Skywarp is more of a purple clone.

I realize that due to ALL the "Cassette"-bots all turning into the same thing, they had to get creative with the different transformations, but I just cannot get past how AWFUL the Steeljaw/Ravage mold is. :SICK: :SICK: :SICK: It's a jumble of parts with tiny legs and (in Ravage's case) an oddly shaped head sticking out.

Skywarp doesn't seem right to me...I've been looking at the CG rendering in the game and they are pretty much the same, but something is still VERY off to me...

It's the toy's gunmetal gray. It needs to be closer to black to better match the game model.

...You know looking at it now,I think you're right. I wouldn't mind the gun metal gray if only his thighs,upper arms,and hands were the same black as his head and the grey on his chest was whiter.

Sabrblade has helped yet another Tranformers fan satisfy his quench for knowledge!
