    Oh my crap, I just got this figure, and he's so awesome! Are there any plans to release the rest of the other Aerialbots? Even if they don't, this guy is awesome!

    even tho the transformation is super simple, it is still a decent fig. maybe not worth $26. but i got him for ten during the amazon sale in dec 2008.

    Didn't think this figure would be that great. He's just so simple, that he's rubbed off on me. Heh.

    I picked him up on sale at the bargain bin at this dept. store for $7.99.

    Fixed.

    I would encourage to do so, he's not worth the retail price.

    I like Darkwind enough to maybe get the henkei ver. or Universe if I see it for cheap like you. So far all i have seen is $22 at Kmart.

    Disclaimer: Massive fail below


    The only other planned Aerialbot is Strafe, a Japanese Gentei! Exclusive who is a repaint of Universe Cyclonus.

    I could keep an eye out for him, if you'de like, and let you know. I would charge you the cheap price I usually find them for. Darkwind is the Decepticon Powerglide repaint, is it not?

    The Strafe Cyclonus repaint is a homage to a technobot of that name.

    7.99 would make that impossible to pass up. Great bot mode with a meh jet, but did I say GREAT BOT MODE??

    Buddy, I share you feelings exactly about Silverbolt! I absolutely love the figure. Overly simple transformation, yes, but still, he has a truly gorgeous bot mode and I even love the jet mode.

    Fortunately, I was lucky enough to pickup Onslaught on sale for 50% off :D

    Yeah! As a kid, i've always loved those bots that had an easy, fast, and fun transformation. That's why I'll always love my RiD Scourge.

    Oh yeah, thank you. That's it.

    This is the only G1 Classics mold that I don't have. I don't like the simplistic transformation and not a fan of the character or the Aerialbots for that matter.

    But this thread makes me want to pick him up. Must resist...
