Motto: "Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt."
Just a theory here. If you look at the second shot, or the first robot shot, there are no engines. I feel that the jet may come off the robot completely. Jet would be traditional black, for the SR-71, and the robot would be more traditional colors, to G1. Maybe in a follow up package(like Rage of Hercules, Winds of Uranus?), they would have the traditional Concord jet to put on "Silverbolt". Wishful thinking, maybe, overactive imagination, probably.

Why can't TFC just make it all white with some red/yellow/silver/paint aps....

Just cause it is a Blackbird doesn't mean it has to be black....it would still look bad ass in white.

What would really be the big difference if this was an all-white blackbird jet, and not a Concorde...not a whole lot. They are both enlongated large jets...

It's not going to be an SR-71... Remember that there's going to be a 6th member, which was assumed to be the drone. It's going to be an M21 or at least an A12 with a Drone.

Are these color renders coming from someone with connections to TFC ? Or is he just trying to make us feel better about the unpopular choice of the SR-71 ???

Necio is not directly connected with TFC, but most of his Digibashes have been used by TFC. Using the M21's color scheme will have ties to the G1 versions, and the drone itself has been touted/rumored to be the 6th member.

M21 is not the right model, that my friends is just the SR-71a variant.
It's a real paint scheme, rare, but real. it's a nice throw back to the Skunkworks era. Might have to pick him up, even without the others.

You are correct. That specific picture is an SR-71A with the M21 Drone.


This is the M21

If that is how Silverbolt turns out, Im getting excited again. The classics section of my display case is off balance with the cons having Hercules and Bruticus w/FP addons.

Unfortunately Superion will bump Voyager Powerglide out but that is an easy sacrifice.

Regarding the choice of plane, nostalgia aside, SR-71/A-12 is more to scale with the others and has military ties.

Really looking forward to how they turn out an AV-8B and F-16.

This is the one third party item, i wished they would sell in regular operating colors.

I'd more excited if the planes weren't g1 colored.


Maybe then can re-release it later in some dark greys and Olive drabs.

Looks awesome! Just doesn't look like Silverbolt and the Torso (other than the head) bares no sculptural resemblance to Superion... not that it all matters much to me as I agree with Rodimal: I'd be thrilled if they released one in military colors.

I sincerely love the FP crossfire upgrade they did for Superion maximus, and it's staying on my Classics shelf because it's still very good... but it's going into the back.

Sold.
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

Just hope it's in G1 colors so I can at least pretend it's a Concorde. Not gonna bash the chestplate until I see it painted. Colors might be all it needs to give it that proper G1 feel.

Agreed. I recently aquired the Energon versions so that the FP set can become a new character instead of G1 Superion.
