    Universe Darkwing? Botcon Dreadwind finally has a partner.

    Looks kind of neat anyway. Cant say as the mold looks too impressive though, so its a pass.

    Hope it's a mainline repaint and not exclusive.

    I'm betting Botcon exclusive.

    I always suspected Silverbolt would be repainted as Darkwing - the robot mode proportions were too similar to ignore! Always figured seeing one of my favourite Decepticon jets reborn would be a bit much to hope for, but if this is him (and I can't honestly see it being anyone else) consider it bought. This will make a nice companion piece to my Botcon Dreadwind.

    Wonder if he has a new head...

    Silverbolt's mold is simple, but if it's a preexisting character like Darkwing with a new head I might bite.

    (In contrast to, say, Stormcloud who is a cool repaint but a more obscure character)

    If he's Botcon, odds are he won't be in the boxset. He's an Ultra with electronics after all.

    Even still. This seems FAR too early for a Botcon toy to show up online. Would they even HAVE production going?

    Sure looks like Darkwing to me! Which is great. That was such a no-brainer repaint for this mold, that I would have been puzzled if someone (Hasbro, Takara, Fun Publications) hadn't tackled it.

    Gotta get that for sure.... Darkwing was one of my favorite figures as a kid, and Dreadwind is lonely.

    Totally a Darkwing.

    No idea on where it'll get released tho. BotCon of course makes sense.

    I'd say Botcon.

    2 reasons:

    1) I think we've seen most anything Universe that is going to be retail release. Think about release schedules, and the amount of stuff, and how TF2 stuff will probably hit in early June or so. There is more than enough Universe and animated we haven't seen on shelves yet to fill them for 4-5 months.

    2) Details on Botcon are due any day now, right? I mean, they said in early October that they were finalizing things... it makes sense for boxset leaks to start showing now.



    I could be totally wrong though, lol :D

    If it's not an exclusive, I'll be mad they wasted a perfectly good box space with it. Give me something better than another dammed repaint!

    Woah. Please don't be a exclusive which I doubt since a remolded head, would be unnecessary, we've been told before that this coming botcon '09 would have remolded heads for the figures.

    If I get it from hasbrotoyshop or from retail I will troop build this monster. I've seriously been waiting for a new darkwing.

    ^josh, if the robot mode turns out that well its a perfect darkwing homage. Thanks for the link.
