Looks good. Perhaps this will result in a Hasbro release as well, Just like with Ratchet.

I was wondering when we'd see this. Now all we need is Hoist, Grapple, Tracks, Trailbreaker, Skids, and Jazz to complete the Autobot cars collection.

Interesting.

Does anybody else feel that white kinda looks like the sticky white used for Prowl. I can just see it rub of the roof the moment I take it out of the package.

Perhaps they'll add the light bar so that it fits into those holes on the roof?

Now this is the Smokescreen that is needed. It's perfect. Red is also very nice but I'd like to see the light bar and perhaps a nicer photo because obviously, it's photoshopped and the white looks a bit crappy again, like "Henkei" Ratchet's (which turned out to be Universe).

Wouldn't count on it. They left off Sideswipe's rocket pack.

Yep, shocker huh? The Henkei version looks much better than the Hasbro one. I might have to follow your lead and preorder as well. He does look good-definitely my favorite of the three versions.

Um... what's the big improvement on the Henkei? Or are you guys paid up members of the Pointlessly Chromed Spoiler Society?

Awwww Dammit, I had plans to make my own Universe Red Alert with the Sideswipe mold, but now I don't know if I should bother since the Henkei will be much better than anything I painted.

Aye, and we know that this is a fairly bad photoshop, so they either left it off by accident or on purpose because they didn't have the new remolded lightbar to add there yet.

I like my land of hopeless optimism.
