The latest figure to be featured in Seibertron's world famous Transformers toy galleries, is the Japan Toy Hobby Exclusive Dark Skyfire. Dark Skyfire is a repaint version of Classics/Henkei Skyfire, and below is his combat biography translated from Japanese:

Dark Skyfire bio
In an era millions of years before the establishment of the Destron faction’s army, he operated in the same organization as Skyfire. Specialized for outer space exploration, his entire body is coated with a substance that protects it against unknown viruses, magnetic storms, and the like. Although he has a strong scientific curiosity, he agonizes over it being at odds with his great combat skills.

I never gave a crap for Dark Skyfire 'till now-and he looks awesome! :D Wish I payed attention to him in the past. I'm liking all the new galleries coming out so soon-they look great! ;)^

And uh, why can't we have superior Transfomrers like this in the US? :-? :PRAY:

This has to be one of the best repaints I've seen in ages. Just wish I had the money spare to buy this guy. Its the group pics that make me want him, he looks good next to anyone in the classics line.

I've seen him before on this site and didn't give it much thought. But now that I see it in a gallery...

WOW! That is one f**king COOL lookin' Transformer! Maybe I'll make him my first Japanese TF purchase!

How big is he?

I have him as well. I like him, then I don't. I wish he were the gray color he was when shown back last year. Also, he's more of a repaint of Classics' Jetfire than Henkei SKyfire. The only thing that makes him Gentei are the chrome boosters.

It is a superb repaint.
I've got him you're right - Dark Skyfire looks really great on display next to other classics figures.
This figure hasn't been anywhere near as popular as previous Gentei exclusives (of course a lot of this is down to him not being a real G1 character) I have a couple more that I'm selling on Ebay but it seems that people would rather buy unboxed Chinese fakes for $30+ than a boxed original for $45. The first exclusive figure I've had that hasn't sold out within 48 hours.

Awesome figure, but mine is showing signs of mold wear. Mine's booster pack doesn't snap in very tighly and kind of just lays on top of him in alt mode. There's a couple of other places I noticed where parts seem slighly out of alignment, but all in all still a great looking figure.
