    I haven't personally owned it but one of my freinds had the American version (Dreadwind and Smokejumper right?) and it was pretty fun. Considering it's $20 -$30 that's really not a bad price as long as it's in good condition. If it looks fun to you I say buy it ^_^!

    That's the Starcream & BB one isn't it? I was contemplating getting it, but it's on the back-burner for now.

    It's a great toy. I would like to get the BW one myself at some point.

    I had the G2 version some years back, and recently got the repaint for the Takara Robot Masters line.

    It is a fantastic mold. just keep in mind it's "missile gattling gun" has a piece in it that breaks very easily...so it's best not to turn it with the missiles still inside.

    At least that's what happened to my G2 version baxck in what? 1997?

    I feel old now.

    There haven't been many toys cooler than that one since it came out. I'd say it's worth $20-$30 easily.

    At $20 it's a steal. Even $30 is a good price. For the money, you get a Deluxe and a Voyager equivalent, both with interesting transformations, excellent poseability and those versions in particular have rockin' colour schemes. The big one, BB, can triple change as well, and both jets dock together as well.

    Overall, probably the best new design to come out of Generation 2, and the colours really push it that little bit further than the other versions of the mold.

    If you don't own any of the other versions of the toy already, I'd definitely recommend it. Even if you do, I'd still suggest considering it. There aren't many toys from 15 years back who've held their age so well against new designs and techniques as these guys.

    Just like G2 Laser Rod Optimus Prime mold is worth having in any incarnation, the same goes for these two guys. They are, simply put, a MUST HAVE.

    Yea, they are great. I don't have one, but I have transformed a friend's a few times, and he is a great mold. Go for it.

    I bought the G2 version back in the day, and it was one of the best purchases I've ever made. I did not hesitate to get the BW2 version or the Target RID exclusive.


    It will be the best 30 bucks you've ever spent. I'd highly doubt you would regrets it.

    Mine received heavy play at the time of purchase (G2) and I never had this issue. Only issue was some of the stickers on the wings kept trying to come off.

    I remember that toy as a kid. I've been contemplating re-getting it myself sometime (but not in the near future). $20-30 is a good deal. take it.
