Is that a little turtle-tail sticking out from Uranus? Makes me chuckle every time I see it... just pinch it off man!

Damn that beautiful bastard! It's not that I don't want it, it's that I want to see more of it before committing. These mock-ups help sell it, but gimme some more colors and the other 2 molds. I usually but my standard "but not at that price!" statement, but the reality is we'll eventually be spending some big bucks for these guys.

I'm just trying my best to wait for the complete release and any subsequent fixes, unlike what I did for Herc.

Man this guy just got a whole lot harder to resist. Silverbolt is awesome. He looks like TFC took the Universe figure and slapped a Blackbird on his back.

As far as the X-45 goes, it's a little wrong. It looks more like the Sea Shadow stealth boat. With wings. :???: It's chest plate mode looks a little flat and uninteresting right now too. Oh well, will wait to see what it looks like painted.

Still scratching my head as to why TFC went with an SR-71 over Concorde but kept the fighters the same.

whats up with that chest shield looking like a sloppy "W"...?
kinda looks like when it gets painted (if they keep it red/white G1-ish colors), it will look like a big 'ol superhero emblem...

subsequently, I shall from here on be referring to Uranus as...

"WHOOSH"!

I'm sure a professional digibasher could do better but this is my idea of how Uranos could look:

Silverbolt looks really great. Not sure about as a Superion torso though, and I agree that there will definately be a 4th party breastplate released.

That little drone thing though? Looks terrible. It doesn't look like it could fly even if you chucked it. Aestheticaly, it doesn't match the 'real' planes at all.

@Trikeboy;

I am sure we all appreciate your efforts...but if I may:

It seems to me that his left side (our right as we view him face on) seems to be woefully underdetailed. This is in no way a knock on your coloring efforst...I am just looking for someone to refresh my memory because I actually had this G1 set as a kid and honestly dont remember such a disparity in how much color he had on one side.

If this actually IS G1 accurate, then I would hope TFC actually breaks from tradition here and adds some color on those two other limb-bots...at least a couple splashes of red on each one...his "grey" side just seems so...sad to me.

I think the sixth member's head is censored because they haven't really put much work into it yet, it's just a placeholder head or something, and they don't want anybody crying fowl because they used such and such's head in the interim.

I used this picture as my reference when making that digibash:

If you take the stickers off it is basically the same. I understand what you mean though, when I was making the bash I realised he is very white on one side and all the colour seems to go on his right. I hadn't really noticed that before. This is the official configuration but of course, since it is a scramble city combiner you may have attached his limbs in a different configuration.

AHA! and there he is!

So much about this team i remember as a kid LOL...from how silverbolts arms only swung at the elbows to the nubbly little square heads....2 of mine actually snapped off inside silverbolt's shoulders ending my Superion days for good :-(.

Whoever's bot this is must not realize his arms wouldnt look so stubby if he extended the bot's bottom halves (the way they are in robot mode). You can also try this with his legs, but they look pretty gangly the way they are.

Digibashes from Necio of TFW2005

SR-71 version - TFC affinity for black makes this highly likely

also this is what it looks like for the most part without the 6th bot

These all look great-I'd take any of these color combinations. I hope the final production version gets a blue visor option for the gestal head. Not holding my breath though.
