    I hate the name Chopsaw. He's going to be Sideways in my collection, if I get him at all.

    The color scheme feels like sort of a dual homage to BM Thrust and Armada Sideways. (EDIT: as Wollstone mentioned above)

    I'll get it. It's a nice little mold.

    I think they're missing an obvious repaint and homage. They could make him a metallic green with purple and call him Manterror.

    That color scheme is DEFINATELY, 100% Action Master Axer's bike. It's pretty obvious if you ever owned the original.


    -ZacWilliam, and a perfect new little sidekick for "Axor".

    No, Axer's bike was red. Chopsaw is purple.

    no it's the exact same maroon as axer's bike in every pic i've seen. Especially these new ones. Definately not purple. And I've heard enough other folk say the same thing to be confident it's not just my monitor.

    I've got Axer's bike in-hand right now (was going to include it in a pic with HFTD Axor), and the maroon and grey is spot-on. All that yellow is out of place in an Axer homage, though.

    Huh, that's kinda neat. Not enough to get me to buy them, but very neat.

    Interesting! Seems like more of a themed link to Axor then, similar to Sunspot and Terradive. I can dig more of that happening.

    I'd say it's more of a BM Thrust homage due to the Magenta coloring, but I may still get it as a Sideways homage.

    It's more maroon to me, kind of has a Junkion vibe going on.

    Still too much grey plastic on this mold. I'd be all over it if it had a silver engine and maybe some silver spokes.
