    I started these guys when Drift first came out mid last year.... then they sat until this week. This is version 1 of these guys and I will be doing version 2 with the Tracks/Wheeljack molds very soon.

    The feature completely new pain jobs, new articulated hands (which will be available for sale soon), articulated waists (which are a bit easy to pop apart, d'oh), and LED lit eyes with battery storage on their back.

    That mold is a bit too nimble-looking for these guys for my taste, but the work is top notch. They look great. Any weapons?

    Stellar job on these two, I love the new head choice and how oily slick the black on Runabout came out!

    Nice. I kind of wish they had a bit more color on them - the G1 toys had some accent colors and pinstriping. Runamuck's was gold, I think, and Runabout's was red. Or maybe it's the other way around. The white car had gold detailing and the black car had red detailing. Oh well. Looks nice!

    Looks very good, great job. The only thing that is throwing me off is Runamuck's blue windshield but I'm sure black would have been hard to pull off.

    Damn fine work indeed on the main bodies, but I am not as big a fan of the heads. I don't know they just don't really flow with the body for me. maybe better color matching, I don't know, just feels off.

    But the paint work on the main bodies is really awesome!

    Nicely done. While this mold is less fitting than the Tracks/WJ mold, you've pulled it off well. The head swap was a good choice... works well for Battlechargers.

    How you people wire such tiny areas is beyond me. Like I said elsewhere, good job.

    These look really nice, and I think the heads work well, though I wonder if something like Stockade/Gears would have suited the characters better. Massive kudos on managing to light the eyes.
    I agree with Hooper X on the colouring; although Runabout already has red on him, it'd be nice to see some corresponding yellow or gold on Runamuck.
    I'm also a little confused on why they need quite so many Decepticon symbols on them. For robot mode, I'd have thought the one on each shoulder would suffice; there doesn't need to be one on the chest as well, especially when that then gives you one on the roof facing one way, and one on the hood facing the other. Just seems a little cluttered to me, in that regard.

    Don't know if I dig the heads on that mold, but everything else looks fantastic.
