    Nice pics.

    With a black wash and some panel lining, that could be pretty damn sweet...

    costs time and money that i really don't think they have. straight repaints are quick and simple.


    but you have to agree that Countdown does look better than Red Alert does. I've read that several people will be picking this up because its a new toy of an obscure character, they think it looks better than Red Alert or that they just never been able to get this mold originally.

    I personally will not be buying the mold as I already own the original Red Alert mold however I am glad it was done and applaud the character choice they made.

    Wow, the similarities with Scattershot (in bot mode) are huge! I might have to get it as an addition to my neo-Technobots:

    Energon Skyblast as Strafe
    Cybertron Swerve as Lightspeed
    Universe Countdown as Scattershot

    Still missing good Afterburner and Nosecone alternatives...

    I'm just going to call him Preceptor, which by the way is something Hasbro should have done. Anyway I'll get him when I see him out.
    He looks awesome!

    Hmm. Neither the mold nor the colors do much for me, so I'll likely be passing this one by.

    The only similarity is that there's red on it and the Legends version of the mold was used to make Classics Perceptor.

    There's just so much more that says "NOT PERCEPTOR" than there is that does. The blue in vehicle mode and the white head mainly.

    other than being red in some places and using the larger version of Classics Perceptor, he really doesn't look anything like Perceptor.

    I LOVE the Micromaster homages. C'mon... let's see Armada Jetfire as Skystalker now... (even though Skystalker is a car, but if Countdown can be combined with his rocket...)

    that is true, but would it be so much more time & money to give a repaint a new head?
