Well, turns out Dragstrip arrived from ShowZ much, MUCH earlier than anticipated... WARNING: Terrible phone pics incoming. Lovely figure, imho. Articulation is disappointing, as are the awkward looking hands, but the colours pop, the paint looks lovely and transformation is smooth and simple. Plus he looks great with the rest of the team, even if his engineering isn't quite as good as the others. As for combined mode... Welp, my terrible phone cam doesn't do it justice. Looks great, well articulated and solid as a rock. Also, I think it goes very well with the other Constructor sized combiners in terms of proportions and general style. My biggest criticism is there's no easy way of mounting the cars on the front of the legs (hoping for an upgrade kit somewhere down the line) and the overly tight joints, but overall, this is a belting combiner and has really set the bar high for XTB and FT's versions. Plus it's also a great swansong from DX9. It's always nice to see the underdog finish first. Oh, and the transforming beetle gun? Still awesome.
