    I like it.

    In fact i like it more than Classics Powerglide and more than HFTD Highbrow.

    Really interesting. I love both characters, as well as both figures, but this combines well. I'm surprised you didn't change up the facemask, but that's minor.

    Brilliant idea!!

    I'm not sure where the Powerglide=WWII plane thing came from... maybe because so many of us as kids identified his G1 toy as an "old fashioned" plane, maybe because his personality perfectly suits a cocky WWII ace... but I like it! :)

    the cocky part is totally right, but powerglides wasnt the fastest or biggest plane and the people from that time kind of talked like him..but "the girl who loved powerglide" was my insperation. the A 10 & P 38 lighting are kind of simular.kind of.

    Wow! Very well executed and such a great mold choice! This honestly works better as powerglide and in those colors than it did as highbrow in the original colors.

    Bravo!

    Now all you need to do is paint up a dr. archeville figure into Astoria Carlton-Ritz and it'll be perfect! :D

    Right... Powerglide's bio describes him as being a slower, weaker plane than the Decepticon jets, but who gets by on aerobatic manoeuvrability and balls. I always felt that a WWII prop plane would really suit him... moreso than a flying tank like the A-10. :)
