I like the blue on the sword. It looks really good. I'd rather see a decepticon, though. :(

Looks like Hasbro are sterting to release these figures more regularly lately.

Great News.

I think Wheeljack look good as it is. Hope they're not all damaged and have misaligned decals though.

Likewise.

It's not the decal that's misaligned. Look at the top of the door. The entire door is missaligned. I'd imagine that'd be something easily fixed once it's been removed from the box, though.

True of the door, but look at the roof. In the last picture, one side is aligned properly while the other is not. To align the one side properly, you have to pull that leg section FURTHER away from the other, leaving a gap in the rear windshield. So that's a misalignment.

Probably the reason this guy got one so fast was because it was a defect in the paint scheme, plus it got scruffed up (besides the paint scratches, there's some kind of dark scuff on the edge of the roof) So the idea of the normal ones coming out like this are probably nil.

I like it, and as said before (at least a dozen times :D ) I'll be painting over those stripes in red and green myself. But the blue really does look good.
