Cool BT/Alt Meister's final colors?

EDIT: Original source of the pic without watermark

He's white. Yay. teh r0XX0r.

EDIT!
1) Meister now up at HLJ:

The red version looks like early concept designs.

2) Remolded Smokescreen as well:

And yes, the grey parts are proto parts.

EDIT 3: Okay. This is insane.

Woah...when I read Nevermore's post, the way he worded it made me think it would look crap...but that's surprisingly nice.

I wonder if he'll have the number 4 or any of his stripes?

It looks nice from where I'm sitting. Is it just me or does this figure have ankle articulation unlike Streak and Smokescreen? If that's the case, then it'll be a lot easier to pose him.

Well that really is just Prime. Its real...

Jazz in his true colours... now all it needs is a Scatman Crothers voicebox and we got this cat rollin.

Really does look almost perfect on picture... but will the toy match up

I dont think its finished, and i think that they are goiing to put bit more detail into it, but its cool.....

On a side note, i have so far only seen 2 types of alternators (or basic molds). Smokescreen (classic hood-for-cest style, used on Meister, Smokescreen, Silverstreak, and hound, and the Bonnet-on-the-back-of-the-legs, on tracks, sideswipe, and dead end)

has anyone else noticed

Well duh, dude, there's only so many ways you can have a detailed, realistic car transform into a fully articulated robot without sacrifices in either mode...

Which doesn't actually make the criticism any less valid. There's only so many ways you can make a figure turn into a jet, robot and interchageable limb while keeping the price at a budget bracket. Does this make the little Aerialbots excusable from criticism?

No, the Aerialbot molds were inferior to begin with. Smokescren/Streak isn't.
