    Lancia Stratos comeback: dream or reality?

    And hopefully that this time Bertone will grant License to Hasbro/Takara Tomy to make them Wheeljack once more

    Ooh. Nice. Not only is it the return of the Stratos, but it's a pretty sick looking car at that.

    To all the people saying "Let's repaint Generations Tracks into Wheeljack", let's not. Instead, ask for Hasbro to use the new Stratos design if they can secure it. If not, then ask for them to make something reasonably close to it like they did with the vehicle mode of Universe 2.0 Sunstreaker & Sideswipe.

    The overall design is pimp, but that seam down the middle of the windshield bugs the hell out of me. I wouldn't want to be driving a car with my view split in two like that.

    I really like the shape of the back and the middle, but the front doesn't rub me the right way.

    Quoted 5x for ultimate truth.

    Either way that's an awesome design. I think #2 is better but both of them looks killer.

    I prefer the version with the split windscreen design. I like the bold clear lines.

    The second version seems more compromised for the needs of production. Doesn't seem as sharply defined.

    Wait...

    This is the Fenomenon Stratos. It's a Concept design that first showed up in 2005, but never saw production.
    This is the new Pininfarina Stratos. It's supposed to see a limited run of 25, but that hasn't yet begun.

    I would take a Wheeljack figure of either model, but I think the Fenomenon would be a more likely candidate as it's a cancelled design. Even though I think the Pininfarina evokes more of the classic Stratos design.
