    First off, Im suprised this guy hasnt been re-colored as G1 Double dealer. I never had a Cybertron Red alert before, so im diggin this mold

    This guy is looking sweet, can't wait to pick him up along with Darkwind. Also never have owned this and am highly anticipating it.

    Awesome. Cool that you took some pics without the rocket. Some dude in toy discussion was looking for pics of that last week and I couldn't find any.

    ...bird mode freaks me out.

    This HAS to be made into Doubledealer and the club should for sure do it.

    So bought..when I have money:lol  He looks so awesome...

    But I can't believe I didn't see the double dealer potential! I personaly didn't like how DD was a triplechanger that was totally useless and untransformable if you didn't have both powermasters without using excessive force, and the bird mode doesn't appeal to me anyways. However, if a slight retool was made to acomidate a switching faction symbol (bonus if it's changing rubsigns!), along with a head retool, this could easily be Uni. 2.0 Double Dealer, which I'd so buy.

    I love the way the blue just disappears in bot mode. Now that's clever use of deco and mold layout.

    Redeco as Countdown makes so much more sense than an upgrade of Red Alert. Will be very pleased to pick this mold up for the first time with this release.

    Quick question: Does he have good balance with the rocket on his shoulder?

    Thanks for the review! I didn't know the rocket could be detached. If I purchase one, I'll definitely display it with G1 Countdown.

    This guy looks awesome. If I get him, I would have all the Cybertron Defense molds.

    Yeah. When test shots of Universe Countdown were first circulating, I thought for sure it was some kind of Perceptor homage, kinda like Universe Blaster.
