I might be wrong and correct me if I am, but, excluding comic-original designs and redesigns and stuff, is Vortex here the first Transformer with a Gundam-style skirt?
I think that honor may belong to Tigerhawk.
Or, if we stay in WfC/FoC, Brawl has some serious skirt things goin' on. Unfortunately, due to current rigging constraints, it's really hard to get them to look/work properly in game though. So it's not as noticeable in game, and more so when you're just staring at a picture of the character. But, it's arguable whether they're even supposed to be interpreted to function that way, since Brawl's toy has them rigged like the game, not like the hip flaps some other TFs have (not a complaint, just an observation).
On the images - I love seeing Swindle out there. He looks great. Onslaught is the only one who doesn't look "fantastic" here to me - he's waaaay too bright (neon, even, hahaha).
And it's cool to see a "full daylight" level in game too, before Cybertron assumedly will lose its atmosphere. IIRC, WfC only had, at most, "twilight" outdoor scenes where the sun would be closer to the horizon, like at the Stellar Galleries (my fav level, in game).
That or just the Sea of Rust or wherever this is is just super reflective and bright (like going out in the snow), which is totally possible.
Either way, I like it.
edit: oh, also worth noting is that during the big month-long campaign GI did back in October or whatever, and in the mag: IIRC, Starscream has a little non-faction escapade going on. As in, like, what he's doing now in TF:Prime.
