    Wow, that looks awesome. I never liked this mold, but with those colors, i might just pick him up when he comes out. From what i can see, that cyber planet key looks odd. I wander if it's a new one or not.

    Looks pretty good, but I wish they would tint the windows so you can't see the inside as much. Seeing all those robot parts inside the car is really distracting IMO, more so than it was on Crosswise.

    I don't like the mold either, but it is a great repaint.

    I'm definitely liking it better than the Universe repaint of Hot Shot that never materialized. I'll pick one up for sure once they're released.

    I agree. On Crosswise, his windows were tinted green, I think. So you couldn't see in as much.

    But besides that, I don't really have any qualms over this repaint. I love the G1 homage colors. He will be mine. Oh, yes..he will be mine. :D

    Crosswise: Habs Edition

    Hm, as an homage, it's great. But I think that's all it has going for it. Take that away and this is a pretty garish paint scheme.

    He looked weird to me at first, and then I realized that it was because I've come to associate the character too much with Alts Smokescreen. I may get him to stand alongside my Classics.

    Hmm, might have to pick that up. The Smokescreen colors work pretty well on that mold.

    I can't really say I like this color scheme on this mold. I don't own the original either, but I like the original better. We need other G1 character homages that haven't been done yet IMHO, but I guess they want to keep the Smokescreen name.

    This is going to look great in car mode. The robot mode is a little iffy with me. Although, it makes a huge difference if you take the kibble off his back/waist.

    Not bad, not sure if I'm getting it though. Might fit well with classics but I don't know if I want to mix other stuff in with that.

    I'm still hoping we get something other than black for the missile launchers.

    I like him better in black. Nice mold, but I don't like it enough to buy another one.
