    Just thought I'd share this with all you happy people. Jizaitoys has updated with progress on his Powerglide custom. Click the link for more:

    http://jizaitoys.seesaa.net/article/82556332.html#more

    With Classics 2.0 Powerglide due for release soon, the aerial ace is going to get a lot of recognition. But which one deserves your hard-earned cash? Jizaitoys' version is closer to his cartoon appearence, but it will probably sell for a lot more, regardless of its smaller size. Unless some of you feel otherwise, the Classics 2.0 version might be a painful 'second choice'...

    Wow. Looks great. I don't like the ankles and feet, they are to floppy.

    I'll still go with Classics 2.0, I like the updated designs and the price :)

    Nice. As much of a fan of Powerglide that I am, I might just have to find one of those. I missed out on the first two he did. Tho it's gonna hurt if it's the same price as all of his other toys.

    Wish this guy would team up with whoever the company is cranking out the G1 knock offs and mass release his designs. They are very nice, but those ebay prices...
    I'd think he could make more selling the design outright to the company or taking a % of sales.

    Wow that looks loads better than their previous version. I still like the Hasbro version better but wouldn't mine picking one of these up if it weren't going to be $200 +.

    This guy managed to pick the two transformers from the pool that Hasbro is doing a retool... man that sucks.

    Like his stuff, just not as much as to buy any.

    Nowadays, I'm not sure you can. Rumour has it only forty of each were made and were first sold at a convention in Japan in 2006. Ordinarily, I would recommend eBay. There was a seller called 'pomponet' or something who occasionally sold them for hundreds of dollars. The lowest I've seen Wheelie go for is $125. Cyclonus rarely went below $300. Anyway, the seller seems to be out of stock. My recommendation is to try Yahoo! Japan instead. Check this link (which searches for 'JIZAITOIZU') from time to time and investigate middle-men services such as Celga or Shopping Mall Japan for overseas shipment.

    I wish the classics powerglide looked liked this and was in this scale.

    It sure beats the hell out of the Classics one we have coming.

    Too bad the price won't.:(

    While this looks cool, and would make a nice additon to my collection, I actually like the Universe Powerglide that we're going to be getting. If it weren't for the price, I would concider trying to get one of these.

    The other designs on his site are amazing. Granted, feme-frogs and transforming kangaroos may seem kind of goofy, but this guy makes 'em work.

    It's a shame that his Transformers stuff isn't availible for mass release. Even though I'm a huge Classics fan, his Wheelie, Cyclonus, Octane, and Powerglide are so "toon" accurate, it puts most of what we've seen for 2.0 to shame.

    This d00ds work is incredible. I can't even guess at how he builds this stuff.
