    I got my pre-release one a while ago and found one at retail today so i decided to review them.

    REVIEW

    This is one of my more liked molds from the original classics line and am glad it got used again.

    The color scheme is rather nice on FRACTURE but the pink face is a little meh for me.(the spare one will be made into Drag Strip eventually)

    Both my early version and release version have really nice joints and paint apps so the reuse of the mold for the 3rd time hasn't affected it.

    I searched through like 10 of these before I found one with good paint apps. The area where the legs connect in car mode in between the spoiler and cockpit has issues too. One of the legs is all jagged on one I saw. Even the face apps on the one in your pics here are bad. I'm stocked on the figure but after looking through a bunch I started to get a KO vibe from the whole lot

    EDIT: just look at the 5th pic down in the first post where the car is standing up on the left side, it's all jagged. The mold must be going bad. Not good news for those of us wanting another repaint as Dragstrip :( 

    Oh yeah and I love the new theme of female bots having goatees, Fracture and BT Arcee are great examples of this

    Nice review. If Drag Strip gets a release I hope it gets a new head.

    That's a rather obscure homage. The colors look good, apart from the face.

    I like the pink, it's that smirk that makes her look sorta boyish. But yeah, lipstick would be nice.

    Fourth, I believe... Classics, Henkei, Botcon, and Fracture.

    Aside from some sloppy (albeit minor) paint apps on mine, I love it! This is a mold I wouldn't mind seeing resurrected periodically, and a red Diaclone-inspired take would certainly be welcome.

    I have to say Fracture is my favorite use of this mold. I was rather meh on Mirage and his clear counterpart, but Fracture is just full of win.

    Just got mine today. Great repaint into a rather obscure character, but one that a lot of fans of Gobots (including myself) have been asking Hasbro to do for since Classics first got released (now all I need is Starscream into Leader One, Rodimus into Turbo & Evac into Coptor... can't think of anyone for Cy-Kill or Scooter though... and I'll be happy with nice updates of the main Gobot cast). :) 

    Overall I really love this mold (seriously, this was the 'come from behind' mold in the original Classics line for me... didn't think it was going to be anywhere near as cool as it ended up being) and I love it even more with these paint apps.

    I do have to echo that you have to be careful when you're searching through the pallet of these things... Fracture seems to have some of the worst QC issues out of the lot when it comes to her paint apps. When I was searching for Crankcase and Breakaway at the same time I found good versions of them almost immediately, but Fracture seems to have a lot of issues with the black bleeding into the white... at least all the ones I saw did.

    Yeah it is supposed to be a homage to the Gobots Renegade character Crasher. A damn good one too. Now we need some more.
