I like the mold but ther's something about this colour scheme that doesn't sit right with me.

On the subject of G2 Skyjack, I always thought Cybertron Sideways would make a good War Within Skyjack.

How many colour schemes have this mold come in now?

I know Silverbolt and Darkwing but did I see it as Brainstorm or was that a custom?

3rd repaint of a lousy mold. why bother?
you know, i only have universe silverbolt because it was on clearance on hasbrotoyshop for 10 bucks before the holidays last year, and i also had a coupon for 25% off. i ended up paying 7.50 for an ultra class.

you know what?
i over payed.

You know , I actually like the Silverbolt mold...even if it is basically the robot tucked under the jst. And I could always use another Decepticon...is this an exclusive and does anyone know when it comes out?

November from what I recall.

I like the mold as well. The Japanese USA edition of Silverbolt is really, really nice. Darkwing from Universe was a piece of quality work as well. When people complain about the undercarriage of the jet, I pretty much dismiss their opinion on the matter out of hand. That kind of complaint just proves that you can't please everyone.

How many Plane TFs actually have a perfect looking Jetmode without robot parts hanging down?
Cybertron Jetfire I can think off and that's it.
Complaining about bot parts on a plane TF in alt-mode is like complaining about seeing robot parts on the underside of a car Tf in car mode when you flip it.

Cybertron Thundercracker is another. ;)

I'm a sucker for homages, and this fits the bill. Poor Silverbolt tho, outnumbered...

I'm also a fan of this Silverbolt mold.

I didn't dig the last repaint, but this one is a must for me.

The Jet mode looks like Jetfire. If they'd remolded the head a bit and changed a few colors in robot mode, they could have passed it as a voyager version.

I reckon one of the reason I like the Silverbolt mold is because it's so simple to transform...I've had more trouble transforming Scout Class molds than this Ultra classed one....cant wait for this to come out!

Passed on Silverbolt and Dreadwind paint schemes on this mold, but man this scheme just screams "Get Me".

I'm not a fan of the mold, but the black and red make it look cool.

As to the robot under the plane dilemma, I don't mind some parts under the plane.

I love the Superior Combiner limbs and they have fists just sitting under them. I like the Armada seekers even if they have legs as their undercarriage. Heck I have no problem with classics Jetfire's arms and legs there.

But when you can cleanly separate the robot from the plane and both of them are still fully functional, that's when I don't like it.

I like to see alt mode parts incorporated into robot mode.

With that said, I think I will pick it up though.

Oh and Armada Thrust also does it right. well except for the part where the robot has no hands but still, there's no robot kibble under the plane its all integrated

It is not just that there are some robot parts hanging off the bottom of the plane, it is that the entire robot mode is hanging off the bottom of the plane, and the entire plane is on the robot mode's backpack. There is a little bit of pretend airplane features on his shoulders even. There isn't much sense of plane turning into robot. But, having said all that, it does look nice. I just wish it were smaller. It could easily be scout class and I would love it. As it is, it is way to big for its level of complexity.

I'll pass. The character reference does not interest me and I have the other two versions of this mold anyway.

So how many times do they plan to repaint this mold? I like the colors and the mold but im gonna have to pass. Dont have the money to buy repaints any more.

Well when I saw this in the Botcon coverage, wasn't all too impressed. However, seeing as both Silverbolt and Darkwind are no longer avaliable anymore, and since Black looks way better than Grey and Purple with teal, I'll probably be stuck with getting Skyfall.

I love the silverbolt and Darkwing versions, but this one is a pass. It's a nice figure and a nice homage, but I already have the mold twice. Unless it's on a heavy clearance, then all bets are off!

Hasbro can call the figure whatever they want to be able to trademark the name. I'm getting him to be Universe Skyjack! Glad I passed on Dreadwind since I didn't have a Darkwing (stupid conventions), I like these colors better anyways. And Cyberjets were one of my favorite things from G2, it's nice to see one get a upgrade/homage, even if it is a redeco.

So. This for Skyjack. An orange and red repaint of Jetfire/Treadbolt for Hooligan. But what would you use for Space Case? Maybe Cybertron Sideways, for the forward wings and being the smaller, dimwitted one?
