    Cool, I remembered the jet set, but totally forgot all the others (especially this black set) not sure I ever even saw the red trains.

    I always felt this alt mode would have looked at home on Outlaw Star or something like that.

    Can I just gush about how GOOD of a representation Dropkick is as a Bell AH-1W Super Cobra? Aside from some shaping issues at the end of the engines, this thing is a dead ringer for it. The width of the helicopter is practically spot on, and the super shorty wings. Hell, even the thickness of the rotor blades and how they're curved instead of squared is VERY specific to the -1W Super Cobra. One of the very clear identifying features used to differentiate the variants of the Cobra visually.

    There are some transformers I get because their alt modes are GODDAMN STUNNING, and deluxe Dropkick is definitely one of those.

    PERFECT if it was actually voyagers, given the intricate transformations & tiny parts

    now THAT's how you do a futuristic/Cybertronian alt mode. Not just bolting weird square lights on top of a Freightliner and making the grill blue because reasons.

    I truly enjoy the Siege one as well. Both have their merits.

    i'd argue the Seige alt mode has zero merits :lolol  but we all like what we like :lol :thumbs2: 

    but the important thing is: Galaxy Convoy rules.

    Made these pictures for another thread today:
    Robot mode of mp 5 isn't great but the gunmode is still the best in my opinion:)

    Among all of the G1 Hot Rod toys, the Titans Return one is probably the one with the most attractive-looking vehicle mode in my opinion. It's sleek, mean-looking and it just looks fast.

    I really like that altmode, it’s kind of a shame that Takara did their weird translucent chest (really not sure what they were going for there) instead of just giving it the super premium deco it deserved
