Look good, this will be mine
How can I NOT get this? It's perfect! Love that they went carbot size
I want this guy but now I feel that other 3rd party companies will now make there own version of Powerglide....
Hopefully there won't be a Powerglide war as the MP Springer mold still continues and the Stunticons war is on the horizon.
I was in love with this at first but there are a few things that bother me.
For starters, I'm not a fan of how the arms look underneath the wings.
More importantly, I really don't like that he has diecast in his arms. It could make them flop really badly in vehicle mode unless they make the arm and wing connections super-solid. Granted, that might not happen, but I feel like it's something to look out for (that, and I don't know why this figure even needs diecast, let alone in the arms of all places).
I'm not a big fan of the tail fins folding under the feet either because the toes are hinges.
Other than that, I dig it. Maybe a little too tall for my tastes but I dig it.
With a little tweaking, I think it'd be even better, but as it is, it's pretty good. As long as the diecast isn't a problem, I might even end up buying this.
Needless to say though, the accessories are great.
I wouldn't bother. From what I've heard, it has poor quality control and it's not that great in general. Also, I could be wrong, but I believe that was another one that was basically a "stolen" Jizai design, for better or worse.
Oh, there's die-cast arms? Ugh, I might pass after all. That's a shame.
Why? It's just a panel on the forearm.
Oh darn it, 6.2", would have preferred smaller, but beggars can't be choosers I guess, he looks great and come with girlfriend, and a stand too... gotta have it.
It even looks better than Hasbro's CW Powerglide and XTB's Glider (their v1 Powerglide). Quality wise I know this will be better than XTB's v2 Powerglide. I'm going with this.
Hopefully, it's around $45. It looks pretty simple.
Looks great to me. Not going to jump on it at first availability though. Lets see who else has plans for a PG.
If they're okay with making him bigger than he should be, I wish they had gone all the way with it and made him scale properly in alt mode. A seeker sized warthog would be badass. I dont see the point in him being an in betweener though.
$45? Maybe in the Kingdom of Caring! My guess would be twice the amount.
It certainly blows Hasbro's CW version out of the water.
You can get Badcube Brawny for $65. This isn't going to be $80.
I really hope you're right.
Is it too early to ask for a repaint?
I have a feeling that's overall height to the top of his wings.
Time will tell.
Why are people wanting smaller? The toy was small but, Powerglide wasnt.
Clue's in his sub grouping. Minibot.
It's why there's a fair few ppl passing on BC Wardog as he's just too big for ppl.
