    ... looks so much better than Breakaway. It's looking pretty damn good, to be honest.

    Dammit I don't need this mold a third time, especially when I didn't really like it all that much the first 2 times. Why does it have to look so good?

    I just notice his Mech-tech gun is a retooled version of Topspin's gun.

    Color blocking really makes this one pop.

    But i'm happy with Thrust.

    Looks great, but I don't think I'll need it. I've got both Breakaway and Thrust..Breakaway looks a bit goofy, Thrust is awesome.

    Although I like the mold, I'm not feeling this repaint.

    I would've liked a better colour scheme reference to G1 Air Raid in a 'realistic' style.

    The 'problem' with Air Raid is : black jet top, white jet belly - white/red robot, black back....and

    .....the Breakaway mold has quite a lot of jet surface on his robotmode.

    Its not G1 Air Raid though so this is acceptable. I think the plane looks plain though.

    Man, those colors make that Thrust head look downright sinister.

    That, I am aware of...

    However, isn't this an offscreen / HFTD exclusive kind of character ? Even HFTD Dirge and Bludgeon reference their sources better..imo.

    Is that a mod applied to the cockpit window or can you connect both window and raise them up like that with this release of the figure?

    I think that Air Raid's a video game character. There was a RoTF version of him in the game (One not based on the Breakaway mold) and I remember hearing there may be one in the TF3 game.

    never got breakaway because of the colors. When I did get thrust it was a TJMAXX for pennys.

    When I finally did mess with thrust, I was amazed at how GOOD that mold is. It has a near flawless plane mode. Besides a rear retractable gear...its almost as good as a transformer can get in airplane mode for a deluxe class.

    I too took my thrust apart and seen a little connector..did a lil mod, and the head pops up way better.

    I LOVE this mold, and this new color scheme looks very nice. It looks very CONVENTIONAL, and I like that. with the ports under the wings...this may be worth getting if it comes stateside.

    I DO think there could have been a better choice for the mechtek weapon tho...but..I think thats the case in alot of the DOTMs that I see

    very nice

    Looks good, but I'm satisfied with Thrust.
