    These guys just came in yesterday :) 

    Looks like TRU Singapore is taking the "Exclusive" tag seriously this time, in a land where "exclusives" are not sacred :lol

    Ballin'.
    Countdown has a great bio, that moved me from "on the fence" to "will buy" for him.
    I've already got a Darkwind, but will definitely get a second to keep MISB 'cause he's an awesome toy (plus his bio is funny, with reference to emo bots). Can't wait to see these in the States. :thumb

    Yeah, I thought he had a pretty sweet bio, made him sound like some kind of legendary ancient hero.

    It does play a small factor for me. :)

    Completely awesome. I want both as soon as possible. The bios are great. Poor Darkwind, where's his Marilyn Manson T-shirt, dyed hair, and lip ring?

    It's not that important, but if it's supposed to be a cool character, that adds to the appeal.

    Resale value! :scalper

    Dreadwind is lonely without a Darkwind to commiserate with, plus I never got Silverbolt, so it'll be a new mold for me.

    The idea of Jungle Bonecrusher terrorizing tourist buses in the South American rain forest does it for me.

    I'm thinking between 5-7 copies of the darkwind since I love the g1 figure so much. But only four of countdown for cyb defence troop building.

    I made a thread about these last week in toy discussion; the information we got from a toys r us employee is that these should be available in the U.S. some time in april.

    Which appears to be accurate considering the singapore sightings timeing.

    No g2 "windbreaker" is much closer to a fart reference.

    Darkwing would get mocked post disney. So I accept the name.
    In a perfect world it would have been Grimwing. But I'll accept Darkwind as it sounds ninja esq to me.

    Notice the gun fires a "kinetic blast" which means he's bitter at it only fireing a spring loaded missle.
    Way to stay grounded to the agonizeing reality darkwind.
