    Still can't make my mind up on him. Nearly everything about him is awesome, just those propeller engine wrists really bother me...

    They nailed that altmode! Luv it! :D  The placement of the propellers in botmode is quite unique but there's something about his head - It kinda reminds me of Iron Man...

    Wow, so the aviator goggles become goggles? That's pretty surprising. Thought it would only be a design choice.

    Aww, I'm actually quite disappointed in his head sculpt now, the Bot-Con pics made it look like he was sporting a cocky smirk, now we can see it's just a breathing mask thing. Shame. Apart from that small disappointment, I still think Highbrow is f-ing awesome, can't wait to get my hands on him.

    EDIT: Just realised, with his mask down, it looks like he's got bunny teeth. I'm not sure if that's awesome or not...

    His head looks very... Beast Machinesy. If he was blue I'd probably add him to my CHUG shelves. I might still get him anyway to put on my "random transformers that I think are cool" desk.

    I wish I what makes his design "Biggles inspired" and what the hell Biggles is. Either way, I want Highbrow. Sort of...NOW-ish.

    speaking of repaints for this guy, does anyone think that voyager seaspray will get a repaint? I already made a seaspray custom out of cybertron shortround, and so I don't need a hovercraft in his colors but I really like that new design.

    Meh, I have enough Bayformer cannon fodder on the horizon so I think I'll pass on this one.

    Too bad he's a voyager. He'd look good next to ROTF Ransack or Divebomb.

    Biggles was a fictional WWII fighter pilot, famous for his flying goggles and scarf, as well as some jolly spiffing adventures, what!

    I'm really digging this guy. Love me some bots with personality!

    Still no faction symbol visible on him. That's weird.

    I'm guessing he's an autobot, thus posing me a dilema; Do I buy this version or wait for a possible decepticon repaint?

    I love the alt. mode, but I think that head is hideous. I picture his voice sounding like Mort Goldman from Family Guy with a Southern drawl.
