I've seen this image on several sites already.  Please tell me that's just a bad photoshop attempt on the nosecone of Screamer?

I like the nod to Cobra/Decepticon alliance.

It's neat, but all I really want is the little Megatron accessory.  :-\

You could always just order it off Marauder Inc.  They have basically the same thing.

Jesse is spot on Marauders Gun Runners has a megatron in 18/scale alt mode with all the trimmings. (you would have to add silver.)

Marauders is great, I am helping him now with a project for 1/18.

Iam not really a fan of GI Joe or Transformers but if it is legit, i think it makes for a nice exclusive.

Somewhere I heard that the SkyStriker would only seat one pilot, but that cockpit looks like there's room for two.  Anybody know for sure what the deal is?

I've heard that it will hold one pilot AND that it will hold two pilots.

Let me be the first to start the rumor that it will hold five pilots.  :P

The photos that Hasbro put out show both the regular release and the SDCC exclusive with two seats.  The Sky Striker that was on display at TF had only 1 seat.  I believe Hasbro said that it will have one seat and that they decided to do a more detailed cockpit with one seat instead of less detail and 2.

Starscream was an F-15 Eagle, not an F-14 Tomcast. EPIC FAIL.  :P

I could care less - it's the best of both worlds IMO.  I would have gone ape**** for this in the 80's.  Hope for more TF/Joe crossovers in the future.

Same here.  I'm not a big enough TF fan to really feel the need for something like this, but the Commander is cool.  I still think I'm going to get the regular Joe release of the Sky Striker, though.
