    wish this was a con and both modes aside from the bot are terrible.

    also looks like a chicken or something with no wings with that front of the bike and yellow windshield.

    laserbeak?

    and I know alot of people had such high hopes for this guy...easily the most ridiculous one yet, however I want to bolster my HA cons out so I might get him. If he is reverb, then he is ROTF reverb and therefore a con.

    Shields typically do make pretty crappy guns... I don't care if the box says it's a gunner station, it's a shield.

    ......If it's on sale I may get it for the robot mode. But I would even try to transform him even once.

    As far as ranking goes collection wise, he'll just be cannon fodder any way.

    I love the robot mode, and I too am a HA junky, so this guy is on the buy list. The alt. mode is meh, although the hoverbike angle is kind of cool. I personally don't give a damn about the "weapon modes" since half the time they aren't all that good to begin with (Backfire being the exception).

    I will have to use the fan joke with this guy someday, though. That's just too funny.

    Could make a nice alternative Junkion, I mean its a bike of sorts and just makes me think of a "WFC Wreck-Gar" what with the head and asymmetrical design like his Gens/United version.

    Seriously, what the Hell is this thing supposed to be? A hovercraft-bike-oscillating fan? Usually I am willing to "suspend dis-belief" when it comes to altmodes, but man this is a pile of crap-ass.

    Oh and what a surprise, the bot is ugly and horrendous also!

    Big Phat FAIL!

    I would've been happier with a TF that had a bouncy-on ball altmode...

    Dragstrip is a shield and so is this one (in my opinion). There were some pictures before of Reverb being used as a shield by Voyager Prime. Let me see if I can find it and post it here.

    You know how Lucas and company at ILM keep making these asymmetrical star fighters? you know the ones in clone wars...jet/ion engine on the left and the cockpit on the right. I think the designer who made this was heavily influenced by Star Wars.

    As far as the robot mode goes...I'm not impressed :(  look at the legs; we are so used to some complicated designs thanks to push from the films, that lazy transformations are just not acceptable.

    Sad to say this figure is a no buy...Tail Pipe and Pinpointer still hold the crown as the best HA Basic :)
