In fairness, it has often been more blue than black in the comics too and indeed the first film http://i1119.photobucket.com/albums/k62 ... kbird5.jpg
it sort of flings and flangs over whether it really is the Blackbird or not. I get the feeling someone at Lockheed Martin got a bit touchy, so now it's more often the "X-Jet". In First Class it was pretty explicitly the SR-71 but most other iterations are just inspired by it.
It's more the shape of the cockpit that irks me, it's a bit too rounded, not sharp enough, and the window is too large. To me everything shown in image QO5C4102 is near enough perfect, it's everything out of shot in that picture I take issue with :P
I have to say it's growing on me though. Bad news for my wallet (Though to my mind $50 is good value, but I know it'll end up being more than just the exchange rate of that when it gets its UK price...)
Bit of a shame that they didn't invert the colours on Magneto's helmet. Looks weird on that outfit. Good thing they gave him the hairpiece too. I don't know if Magneto even wore his helmet when he had that costume, since it was when he was temporarily head of the Xavier Institute, and thus didn't need the protection from Charles.
