I don't like it. Needs more detail on the sides and the light bar.

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.

Smokescreen looks just as awesome as I was hoping! Can't wait for BBTS to open up a preorder. 8)

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?

I like the transparent red in Red Alert's chest. I wish I lived in Japan.

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.

Red Alert fails unless there's a lightbar. There's already notchs they could use, how hard would it be to make one?
