That's a pretty ugly colour scheme. They should have just done a more lavish Galaxy Force colour scheme. You know, with all the detail and multiple colours and such.

I skipped the original release but would be tempted to get this. Of course assuming it'll be available here.

burnished gold as well as some more coloring to it makes it look a lot better in some ways.

Gold plastic? Has that ever looked good on anything? Aside from the G2 Bumblebees.

honestly looks better than the white and off whites that this figure did have. unless the white and off white has some way to show off the details easier, then i doubt i will ever buy just a white anything. gold sometimes brings out details, depending on what shade of gold is used. the point is all colors have ups and downs depending on what they are used in. and G2 bumblebee was gold, yes, but that was anodizing the plastic 24K gold. Goldbug from G1 was painted gold, and yes, that was a horrible mold and the gold didn't really help it much either.

Ah, they added the paint aps to the planet key this time.

I think the colors make him look more like a decepticon (EDIT: Just saw the autobot insignia on the ship, but then again, Alt Swindle had an autobot insignia on him in test-shots, didn't he?). If you inverted the black and tan, he'd have nemesis prime colors.

Only on parts that were recycled from a production Hound toy.

I'm happy with the white version. This won't be joining the collection.

I skipped it the first time, hoping that the second version would have paint aps on his planet key.

At least the repaint bio is show accurate "Although he may sacrifice himself in one incarnation" must be related to Cyb. Episodes Guardian and End.

Not a bad recolour thought I prefer the version I've already got. The blue + grey with a hint of gold suits him better, though I do like the changed bio...makes a bit more sense and explains the need for a recolour.


And thats my 2 pence!
