    He and BadCube Wardog should go pretty nice next to each other on my MP shelf.

    This looks awesome! As well as seeing X-Transbots Stunticons in full, this was my favourite reveal. I had The girl who loved Powerlglide on VHS and he was always a favourite :D

    Definitely interested.

    Powerglide is one of those TF characters that's sadly still missing from my collection.

    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.
