This is exactly how I envisioned this toy to be ever since we first heard about it way back in the summer. I held NO high expectations given what all we've seen of the Arms Micron line. Knock Out mold? Check! show-accurate pearl white color? Check! Sticker decals? Check! New headsculpt? Check! Spoiler remold? Check! New Arms Micron figure? Check! And as a bonus, faux wings formed by said Micron. It's all that anyone should have been anticipating from this toy.
Some people may not be following the minutiae of every TF toy line like yourself. I for one am aware of the Prime line, and have picked up a couple of toys from the first wave, and I also know about the Arms Micron line based on whatever I see posted on the front page.
I suppose my distance from the line gives me a perspective that you might not share. What I see when I look at pictures of the AM Smokescreen toy is a shoddy, unpainted, overpriced toy being presented as a "model kit" of a character that it bears little resemblance to.
Your expectations seem to have been satisfactorily lowered enough that you're happy with what's being presented. And that's fine.
I see "unpainted low-grade plastic", and you see "show-accurate pearl white color".
To each his own.
