    Reveal the Shield Windcharger


    Windcharger - Transformers Reveal The Shield - TFW2005

    Windcharger isn't precisely the fastest Autobot on the ground, but he does have the highest acceleration. Heedless of any passengers he might be carrying, he goes from zero to 130 miles per hour in less than a second, and screeches to a stop almost as fast. His overloaded power plant generates a strong electromagnetic field, which he can direct into powerful blasts from the cannons in his arms.

    God I love that robot mode. Windcharger was my very first Transformer as a kid and it always baffled me why he had a different head in the show.

    Can't wait for this guy. Might be adding some paint to him, though. :) 

    I'm also really, really hoping for Tailgate and Rook repaints.

    Hope HTS gets him in soon. I decided not to pay BBTS/TFSource "anal rape with no lube" prices.

    I like how that reads. It's written a lot like the old-school tech specs!

    I get why though, he's basically the only desirable figure in the case (all repacks plus a repaint no one wants.) I'm concerned that Windcharger and Grapple are going to be REALLY hard to come by.

    and i'm dreading watching Mindset, Fallback, Strafe, Chopsaw et all rot on the shelves for the next 6 months...

    Exactly what I thought when I first read it. Nostalgia came flooding back in :) 

    Mindset and Fallback have already started. :::sigh:::

    I like that so many figures are coming with post to clip the 3mm weapons on but I just wish more figures came with them.

    I hope they give the rest of the minibots the scout class treatment. BRAWN first please! Then maybe Huffer or Gears.
