    i saw pictures of classics 2.0 powerglide and im like "they totaly screwed up". i saw pictures of g1 powerglide and im like "they absolutly positivly screwed up". classics 2.0 powerglide is too big for the character, powerglide was a small character so a deluxe sized figure would have been better. classics 2.0 powerglide is out of porportions,the original powerglide had long arms and short legs, this powerglide has small arms and scrunny legs. classics 2.0 powerglide has flames that shoot out of it's armpits, and his head looks more like wing saber than powerglide. i would be okay if this figure was in a different line, but in classics, this is unexeptible. i seen more show acurate toys in beast machines. there making a g1 acurate powerglide, but guess what, it oly in FREAK'N japan. there are no excuses for hasbro not to release a g1 acurate classics powerglide for classics.

    Err, the G1 accurate looking Powerglide is not an official product. I would suggest you buy a G1 Powerglide and ignore the universe one.

    Classics is not meant to be show accurate in the least

    It's modern updates of original characters

    And I think Powerglide looks badassed

    ...though he still coulda been a deluxe

    I dunno, people that have Powerglide in hand have given him generally good reviews. Have you checked out Draven's review? He's got some of the same complaints, but generally said it was a good toy.

    I'm going to get the Japanese version and display him next to Masterpiece Starscream, Megatron and Prime so he still looks shorter than his peers. :)

    Powerglide is one of the figures I'm choosing to skip. I'll only buy him if I see him for a really cheap price.

    His avatar isn't obviously anything. Lots of members use recolors and lots use the original colors. And it's against the rules to call other members stupid. Consider this a warning.

    "Err, the Generation 1 accurate looking Powerglide is not an official product. I would suggest you buy a Generation 1 Powerglide and ignore the universe one"

    you suffer from a common disease known as niaveness. i am not the kind of person to throw hundreds of dollars around just to buy a g1 figure. heck i never had 100 dollars. what i posted is my pure opinion, if you have a problem with me wanting a powerglide that remotly resembles powerglide, than thats on you for trying to live in a perfect world were everyone likes the same, boring thing. if you cant deal with my opinion, your better of with the idiotic jerks at seibertron. :) 

    ps: there has never been a universe powerglide.

    A few small things:
    -Powerglide does not have flames that shoot out of his armpits.
    -His head looks fuck all like Wingsaber.
    -Classics is NOT G1; it is G1 re-imagined.
    -There IS a Universe Powerglide. His name is Powerglide, and he's being released in the Universe line.
    -People don't last long here if they don't learn how to keep a civil tongue in their heads when talking to other posters.

    Okay lets get a few things straight...
    -Universe=Classics 2.0
    -Universe=/=G1, it's a re-imagining of G1 in a more realistic style. Deluxe Powerglide wouldn't be realistic since he's supposed to be a bomber and bombers are not the same size a car(Bumblebee)
    -The Generation 1 accurate Powerglide aussiehippy is talking about is a custom by Jizaitoys, a company that makes updated G1 figures with modern standards

    I've found a new person (make that two) to put on ignore, so I guess this thread was good for something.
