Did you guys see the Windcharger repaint? It's a yellow and 'dirty' rally version of the S2000 supposedly named Dragstrip (after the Stunticon). I personally find it revolting as hell, but I hope it's well recieved and sells out quickly, just so HasTak can justify making more. :)

:lol: Heh, like I said, I hope people like it. I'm not into the rally/ricer/racer look on a car, so this one's not my thing. Sort of like after Silverstreak was released I got rid of Smokescreen faster than a hot potato. I was tempted to get the Jazz repro labels until I decided it would have been purly nostalgia-based and that overall it would make me like Meister less.

Well... It's... not bad, I guess.

The dirty look, well, I bought the Takara version of Prime, if that's any evidence of my standing.

His head really bothers me....

Is his neck REALLY that skinny, or is that just the lighting?

well, it is a proto, but I also think it looks great. I haven't been able to track down an Alt Windcharger yet, but I really hope that one is readily available. The S2000 is my favorite car, and I also dig rally racing, and decepticons are cooler than autobots, so this thing is looking great!

I think Dragstrip looks better than Windcharger.

:o I have to concur. Probably, the first time for me that the Decepticon version looked better than the Autobot one.

Don't think the final will be the dirty look. This seems to be a "security" measure to make selling the protos more difficult or some such thing. There are some Cybertron protos on TFormers with the same black spray paint on them. :huh:

The only one I see with a 'dirty' look is Guardshell, and he's a tractor/construction device, so it makes sense they'd give him a dirty look...

I agree and disagree. This isn't the first time the Decepticon looked better than the Autobot. The first would be Dead End.

Nah, they should've gone with a VeilSide kit and painted it pink to look like Devon Aoki's ride in 2 Fast 2 Furious. That would've made a perfect Arcee for the series. :p

Yeah, they're official. I know that there have been in package pics of Wheeljack.

If I remember right, there have been in package pictures of Shockwave, too. I think the box calls him Shockblast, but the license plate reads "SHKWAV" or something similar.

got my galaxy convoy today... :D

So what do you think of him?

I got my GF wave 1 assortment last week.

Galaxy Convoy is the best since MPC.

Well IMHO he is.

This sounds like it has possibilities. I am curious to see a side-by-side comparison.

Well IMHO he is.

I'm really digging him in bot mode... after the last 2 convoys that I thought were disapointing, I'm glad to see that GF Convoy has some pretty good articulation and actually looks good.

I think in cab mode he's a bit too long, but with all the other stuff put on he doesn't look bad, and I'm not thrilled about the hole on top where his head pops out of... I wish that power shield thing would pop on top to cover it. But I like the look of him.. I really like how he looks like an evolution from the RID convoy to now, instead of an all new design with little regard from previous convoys.

And I think the transformation is pretty cool, some movements are very reminicent of Convoy which I like.

I swapped eyes and mouthpiece on my two Armada Primes. One is the Energon Costoc Prime and the other is the Powerlinx Prime aka final battle prime.

The red mouth was ont he darkblue PL Prime and the Silver mouth was on the Costoc Prime. I think it looks better swapped.

Hey has anyone seen the new wheeljack with the BOSS white and blue painjob. it kicks asss, also does anybody think they'll release a Sunstreak viper in Yellow. Unlike the Dead-end black viper with the Sunstreak head.

Wheeljack inst bad but Viagra Prime's custom Wheeljack was better. It is a White Corvette with Green and Red stripes. I think he should have been like a Lotus Elise or Evo Lancer.

No on the yellow sunstreaker

I love that Wheeljack. The colors are great, and those new Stangs are sweet. Love that head sculpt, too.

Viagra Prime did a good job on his VetteJack, but I really don't like that mold for Wheeljack. It's also hard to make red and green look good together on a car. I'd have gone with red trim on the car, and green and red trim on the robot.

My personal choice for an original Alt WJ mold would have been a Ford GT.

There's a rumor going around that Alt Sunstreaker might be seen as a store exclusive, sometime in the future. Myself, I decided not to wait. I'm painting my own. Even bought an airbrush for the project. Having the base painting finished, I think I may have gone a shade or two too light. I may have to redo it.

I wonder how much diecast will be in the binaltech version of wheeljack. I heard the Grimlock binaltech only had metal in the front bumper and doors. If binaltech wheeljack is the same, then I will just get the alternator version when it pops up. I don't mind paying the extra dough for a significant amount of diecast metal but not for just a few scraps here and there.
