Wow! Nice! I wasn't expecting a Skyfire deco. Glad I ordered my set. :grin:

I dont even wanna know how a Botcon exclusive for a Botcon that hasnt happened yet got out, in HK.

But it does look good.

When does JetFire ever look like that? It's more like a Cybertron re-paint of Starscream that is "Jetfire Inspired."

It might as well just be called "White with Red Seeker" repaint.

I'll believe it when I see the official posting from the Botcon website (and I am a member).

That's what 90% of the BotCon figures are. And actually, JetFire did look similar to that in his Cybertronian form.

If it's legit, it looks very bootleggish. The paint, the Decepticon logos...my guess is it's a bootleg.

I would expect the Decepticon insignia to be red just as the Autobot insignia is purple this time. Its a shame there are 4 autobots and only 1 decepticon in the Shattered Glass set. I would hope for more balance in the set up.

Thats pretty cool, a touch of grey (a very light touch)in the face would be nice to break it up alittle though.

I like it. I don't think it's final product yet though. The face seems unfinished.
Hmm, I wonder what Megatron will look like?

Whatever it is, I like it.

I still regret never picking up the GalaxyForce version of Starscream.

I’m really liking this one and since I missed out on the voyager version it might be worth a small sum. I was hoping for a supreme repaint to go along with supreme Starscream though.

Doesn't it seem more likely that this is the "heroic" Starscream that is supposed to come in the boxset, rather some version of Jetfire?

Sweet, I knew it! I hope this isn't fake because that's the first figure I really like in this set.

I'd be suspicious about someone selling an exclusive item before the botcon. I say this cos I've already been burned :sad: :-x :evil: :oops:

That's no bootleg people.

We're getting Decepticon JetFire! WooT!

Rumors of this mold being in the set have been fairly consistant.

Really, really nice...

I can't wait to see leaked Megatron pics now. :grin:

That Jetfire looks good. Makes me wish it was possible for me to attend the BotCon

I have high hopes, but I'll reserve final judgement for after we get some better photos.
