    They should have switched Streetstar with Rapido.

    Is that a new head? Looks *exactly* like the original Rapido's head.

    I find myself frequently surprised by remolding decisions FP makes. Rapido has a really great remolded head here, though to be honest, faceplate aside, the head shape is Prowl-like enough they probably could have gotten away with no remolded head, yet they did. Meanwhile Streetwise/Streetstar and Pyro/Spark go without.

    But then, these are the guys who remolded Blurr into Angry-Blurr-with-an-eyepatch, so I've given up predicting the remoldings. :)

    They probably figured that Streetwise may not have sold as well as an at-con exclusive (although, presumably, he'd be sold with someone else, right?).

    That is fantastic! The head is wicked and the paint is perfect just like Sky-Byte.

    I'm thinking that only three head remolds for the box set were allowed and at least one bagged exclusive had to have a head remold.

    I like it. Hopefully we will see the other attendee exclusives in the near future. Need to get me some spare funds to pick some of these badboys up.

    They really should have made Rapido part of the boxed set instead of Streetwise. With the new head, it really makes me wonder who the freebie is... Gnaw? Hopefully not Slicer...

    So far, the only figures I really want from this year are Pyro, Clench, and Rapido. Maybe Gnaw. Slicer if they get rid of the Autobot symbol.

    Somehow the head and paint scheme has made the Prowl mold look good...Was never a big fan, but this I like.

    I figure Rapido won't be the freebie, as the new head is used on him and no one else in the box set (unless another figure at the con has it too).

    Damn, that new head looks awesome. And it sufficiently makes Rapido looks different from the Z brothers. Very nice.
