TFClub has these new images of Strafe up on their site. You can check them out HERE.
Terrible figure the robot mode looks like I ran over it with my truck. Easy Pass for me.
Ugh, that looks awful! What a terrible color scheme to inflict upon a great mold. It has that same "light grey against light cream" thing going on that scout Wideload had; why on earth have two tonally similar but different light colors clashing together on a mold like that? At least they should have been lighter and darker variations on the same color range, like Blurr's varied blue shades. But light warm cream against light cool grey? Bleah.
Having said that, the red head with white horns is nice enough. It's a nice red. If not for the grey/cream thing this figure would work a lot better, in my opinion.
It's not "thatttttt" bad. I can live with that color scheme.
Looks kinda Christmas-y.
I'm digging it. I can't help but think that Strafe has been getting the shaft by having the last 2 figures be redeco's of characters that look nothing like him.
Eh, I think it looks pretty cool.
I liked the Mindwipe figure so much that I couldn’t wait for a repaint.
Then I saw this.
And he color matches a Decepticon drone?
Well thought out.
Proof that a poor color scheme can make even a good mold look bad.
i kinda really like it in jet mode, the autobot logo on the wings is just fantastic... but i'll definitely pass on it... just don't need it... doesn't look like an autobot in robot mode... maybe if he had a new head...
Great mold... Just not as an Autobot.
I've nothing against that particular deco. Got Mindwipe so I'm probably not seeking a second outing, but I feel it's a bit harsh to call it something one would run over in their truck.
The Autobot wing deco is also extremely clever and probably now holds the award of "biggest Autobot symbol".
Personally, I like it! I think I might pick it up when I see it. If I have the extra cash laying around.
It looks AWESOME! Fits so well!
Pointless repaint is pointless.
I quite like it. I'll never buy it, for the same reason I never bought mindwipe - it'll never come out here, and it's not worth the import fees. Bought ina street, sure, but with the added cost of importing, nah. I'll just look at it and smile quietly to myself.
You know, I actually think the deco makes the robot-mode look rather striking. It takes what originally was a sinister looking robot and makes it look heroic.
The problem comes into the fact that the deco doesn't really work for the alt-mode. Not realistically anyway.
I have to admit I like the whimsicalness of that.
Eh, I like the mold, and I like how the repaint looks. Don't know if I'll get him though, too many other figures I want more.
You know what? I actually kind of like it. I already have Mindwipe, who has a better deco, but I think it's actually a funny deco. Definitely not as bad as that one delivery truck scout figure with the cream and blue thing going on..
I agree. I'm lovin the autobot logos on the wings, but the mold just doesn't fit in with the classics/CHUG, and doesn't do it for a good rep. of the character...
Technobot homage. And Air Support for the reveal the shield Autobots.
Red on White. Orange Translucent bits. I think it looks fine. Would be better if they would make a third skystalker redeco with a autobot theme. Granted the connection between these two molds has been a designers easter egg, rather than a advertised feature.
