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.

Praying for either the white and black version because it is real and it looks good. But I wouldnt complain if we get a white version. Anything but black. I already got a black SR-71 named Jetfire.

now THOSE are worth a look...although I think TFC could do a better job coming up with something to do with all that back kibble (gives me the impression that, when viewed from the back, would make me think, "man this guy hardly changes at all during transformation"...)

Also, may I be the first one to point out that, according to how Silverbolt's chest appears in that last set of photos, Superion will look MUCH more G1 accurate WITHOUT the stupid "6th member" chest plate that is causing such a heated debate anyways...TFC TAKE NOTE KKTHXBAI.

Also, all NECIO's works on SB have been well received by both TFC and Jeff, the designer of Uranos as I forwarded all to photos to their blogs last night. Based on on a fullon discussion followed on Jeff's blog, in which he has participated, he personally prefers NECIO's M21 color theme as well as unveils that thus far the white 'G1 theme' is the most favorable while the 'Black SR71' is least liked by Chinese fans.

Going against the grain here, but I still can't get excited about these guys. They look awesome, but just out of scale for my collection. I want to see how they scale with Giant before opening my wallet to TFC.

TFC needs to stop fooling around and just show us the completed prototype. I'm not even considering these until that happens.

The scale bothers me as well.

I'm assuming that your don't have Hercules... Uranus will be around the same size as Herc.

I do own Herc, which is why I can't get excited about Uranos. To me, Giant is more refined and cleaner than Herc.

I'll probably just keep my FP Superion.

The scale bothers me as well.

Since jets are typically as large as or much larger than average construction vehicles, I'm going to let the scale of TFC's Superion slide. Plus, he'll be my only Autobot combiner so I want him to look imposing.

Plus, if MMC's Predaking is huge, Superion's size will balance that out-at least in my collection.

Is there somewhere we can jump on this discussion?
Where is Jeff's Blog?
Personally I like any of the decos presented, minus the silver one, but I'd prefer the black/white deco.

Like X said, it looks great and is a real-world deco for the plane.
I'd like to be able to add my vote :)

To hell with realistic military colours. We've got a bright red F-4 for crying out loud. Jet black F-15s aren't exactly common place either. I'd much rather have a white Blackbird than black kibble on the back of Silverbolt.

I really don't want to want this set. I can't afford to want this set, but I'm starting to think the completed Uranus is going to be a thing of beauty.

Out of ALL those digibashes... honestly, the black SR-71 looks the best. Best in alt-mode & best in the other 2 because the black creates a nice silhouette for both Superion and Silverbolt... it hides the kibble in those 2 modes nicely.

So I guess this means that Superion will be using the same joint connections as Herc? Weren't the shoulder joints an issue on Herc?

Yes, it's going to use the Energon Connectors. There have been reports that people have had some issues over time.

Wow. I'm liking that Silverbolt. I'd like to see either the G1 mostly all white or the white with black highlights paint scheme. He looks really badass in bot mode.The chest shield looks really odd, though. Maybe there'll be an add-on pack with something different. I like that the cockpit turns into a gun. It would have been some odd kibble if it didn't.

Two more members to reveal. Let's go.

For some reason i just can't get excited about this project. Don't get me wrong...it's totally awesome but i'm happy with my crossfire Superion.

But when someone start a Computron or an Abominus......THEN i'll be excited and more than likely start losing my **** with excitement.

It's the 700 hundred dollar price tag on this fugure (after shipping) that is a MASSIVE turn off for the likes of Herc and Uranus. Just can't justify it.
