    I personally like the Coast Guard/Evac helicopters from the two movies. I wish the ROTF mold was better, but it's still a good alt mode.

    Wow, of all the things to complain about, you pick this.

    I personally like Evac, due to the fact that Cybertron Evac was one of the toys that got me back into collecting.

    We could get two Evacs in every line, just as long as they stop reusing iffy molds. I'm looking at you '07 Movie Jazz and Blackout.

    I don't mind Evac repaints; I just wish some of the recent helicopter molds were better.

    ...Wait, WHAT? We've had FOUR Evac toys, TWO of them meant to be the same character. Cybertron/LoC Evac, and TF1/TF2 Evac.

    How is that too many?

    Wow. That's quite the posting error.



    I think we'll see Evac for a whle, as long as there's helicopter molds, since he'll be the inevitable repaint, just as with every mold. There's also Blazemaster, Grindor, Blackout, etc. though, so its not like we JUST see Evac...

    will hasbro ever release the cybertron evac mold sporting a airwolf style colorscheme?

    seriously give the guy some targetmaster minicons to pwerlink with and he would look totally killer in that colorscheme

    I didn't really care for the original cybertron version. I didn't get that mold until it was redone as springer. Hated the originals colors. But I really dig the orange coast gaurd colored ones. The colors really catch the eye and make him pop.

    But... the original was orange?

    I love the Cybertron Evac mold. I only own it as Springer (wanted Evac, but didn't have money at the time and barely saw it in stores), but it's one of the better voyagers I have. I've considered looking for the Blades repaint too, but don't really want to spend the money.

    You could never have enough of Evac. I like Cybertron Evac since he was one of the best TF's we've had in recent years.

    I missed out on Cybertron Evac, though i really liked the mold.
    Got it when redecoed and renamed Blades for the TFU line.

    When i get that new RotF Evac, i am gonna just call him Blades as well.

    it's my toybox, my rules.

    I'd rather they used a new head for the mold, like they did with the first movie Evac.

    I don't mind the character of Evac so much, I just wish there were more helicopter molds in general. I'd rather have a choice in molds than to see the one helicopter mold be turned into every character with a heli alt mode ever.

    Whirl needs his Whirl head.

    Springer deserves a triple-changing mold, being a rather high profile character in Season 3.

    And I want a good, deluxe Generations Vortex/Henkei! Vorter.

    Since it's established business practice to reuse molds to create different characters, I feel they should at least stick the redecoed characters together as a subgroup, like how the Seekers or Prowl/Bluestreak/Smokescreen turned out. If a mold is originally released as an Autobot, later redecos should all be Autobot characters, for instance.

    I think that makes more sense than saying Transformer X has an evil/good twin on the other side, only in different colors -_-
