Wow. I'm not surprised by your impressions with the design 'flaws' of the robot hanging onto the jet body. Not-Silverbolt or RoTF Jetfire, the SR-71 is just too sleek to be a bulky robot.

Thanks for the heads up on the hip joint. I'm still planning on getting this set, but for all of its design failures I'm wondering if TFC will do like they did with the Hercules and release a set of "upgrade" parts to give it a different head and new connector parts. Maybe a more "Not-G1" accurate mouth plate head.

Kinda begs the question if you're going to change Silverbolt from being a Concorde to something else, why choose the airplane notorious for being hard to turn into a robot (unless your name is Kawamori)? I mean there are other airplanes out there that look more like a Concorde and even have a chunky underside.

We need a third party torso to replace this one!

I would never stop laughing

I would never stop laughing if a different 3rd Party group swooped in and made a better not!Silverbolt than this one specifically to correct Uranos.

Of course, if they can manage that, they should probably just make their own Superion since, judgeing by the grumblings from across the internet, this one has not truely scratched the itch the same way Hercules/Giant did for Devestator fans.

This calls for a Fourth-Party figure called Silverbird.

Superior Superion Mod

I just found about this mod by Tekering on the TFW2005 forum to improve on the look and from what he describes it also fixes a few of the transformation problems for the Torso mode. It really would be interesting to try:

I think that the picture in this post says a lot:

One toy, cut in half, to give both the robot mode and the jet mode at the same time, both looking complete. :~)
