“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis

Is something wrong with your picture? :?

ironrod prime wrote:you sure about that
Yes, because that the toy his cartoon model was based on, and, at the time, that was the only Silverbolt toy in existence during the cartoon's initial run.

Plus, the Universe toy doesn't even have the same altmode. G1 cartoon Silverbolt turned into a Concord SST jet liner (like the G1 toy), whereas Universe Silverbolt turns into a (futuristic) FB-129 supersonic fighter-bomber.

The wings are also different in Robot Mode, with the cartoon model and G1 toy have them pointing down, while the Universe toy has them (and the nose cone) point up. The colors are also a bit different, with the Universe toy having too much dark gray where the G1 cartoon model/toy had white/"off white". And his cartoon head had no gold. And the upper legs in the toon were gold, while they're gray on the Universe toy and instead his knees are gold on that toy. I could go on, but this is enough. ;)

My personal favorite repaint has to be Armada Cyclonus to Cybertron Buzzsaw, though Powerlinx Hot Shot from Armada is definitely high on my list of most wanted TFs. Repaints I wish had happened might be Cybertron Runamuck in G1 colors. If that were to happen it would've most likely been a Japan only figure, which would make sense since Runamuck was called Runabout in GF. I'd also have liked Cybertron Thundercracker and Skywarp done right. I've attached digibashes to prove my point. As for repaints I want to see in the future, that might have to go to an MP-13S Shattered Glass Soundwave, and a Masterpiece Sundor/Sunder (again, digibash attached)
