    Nice, but I'm certainly not willing to pay double price for a more accurate Ultra Powerglide.

    that's what he should've looked like. That actually looks half-decent instead of being all red are almost all white with red.

    I basically did the same thing, except I left the red on top of the legs.

    For the record, not to pick on you, SP: H-E-N-K-E-I. Not Henkai, Henki, Henkie, etc.

    I'm surprised to see just how nice Powerglide still looks in alt mode with the non-red arms. Not bad at all, but I wouldn't have the cash anytime soon to buy both Universe and USA Edition figures, let alone just the red USA Edition Powerglide.

    Even though its as close as were gonna get I dont like it. May its cause the plastic is just to light. Maybe if it was a charcoal gray like that paint apps on his knee pads

    That actually looks pretty nice.

    Of course, what I want to see now is what the other one looks like.
    There's already been talk that the Hasbro version kinda resembles Hot House; how much does the swap help that?

    Sadly, it doesn't look as good as I hoped it would. There's still something off about it.
