It should not be a repaint only, the head is a new mold.

I was hoping for more, but what are you going to do? Not buy it if you don't like it.

He's a vast improvement over this

But I'd like a darker blue with no flames.

Meh...never liked nightbeat very much. Honestly, I'd prefer we get some original figures rather than repaints. But that probably costs a ton.

Doesn't look bad, I agree about the darker blue, and the headsculpt isn't bad. I've never been a Nightbeat fan anyway

It looks like it kept the power linking ability, I wonder if they are planning on releasing Minerva from that mold too. Then at least there would be someone to powerlink with.

The head also doesn't look like it transforms into a tiny headmaster Muzzle.

Still looks good and is amazingly accurate to the original, flames and all.

However, that particular mold is not that great. although I do like Nightbeat, and I can see its very faithful to the original. I'm gonna pass.

I like the head but I never liked the mold at all.

But hey, the paint job reminds me of a car from the old show M.A.S.K.

I already have Energon Hot Shot, & I'm not to fond of it, so I'm not to fond of this either(though I do like the head sculpt and repaint)

I am digging this repaint, and the headsculpt captures the nightbeat look.

Clear gun is also cool. This one is on my list.

Step in the right direction for Nightbeat fans.

I won't be buying, but I must admit, they did a really nice job and couldn't have picked a better mold. It really does fit.

Just saw it and I am impressed! Now I thought I saw it one time on the club site where you could buy the exclusives without being a member, will that apply here? Also, how much will this guy cost? I’m seriously hoping he wont cost as much as Airrazor or Astrotrain.

Me likey. Hope he's not too high cost. And look, you can flip his head basck and do the headless headmaster look! also the powerlink spikes look like oversized version of the pegs used to turn the stat wheels

You can order the figures, but non-members will pay more than members. For the difference in price, you might as well join the club and get the free club figure for the year. :)

Was thinking of joining the club to get my hands on Nightbeat, but since he is only a HotShot repaint, I will continue waiting to join the club.
