    This guy looks so great. Not all 3rd-party figures are winners, but this one definitely is. Perfect size, too.

    ?

    Except for the nosecone it mirrors G1 Broadside's paint detailing. That's just what the character looks like.

    For a Classics-verse Broadside, that thing is pretty damn cool. They've done a kick-ass job with both Botmode & Jetmode but his Aircraft Carrier-mode is a bit of a let-down. Still, being only the 2nd Broadside we've ever gotten, it's about time my G1 original had an upgrade...

    Seeing as I've had an order shipped from RK in late October and have another one in December, I'd thought of holding off on purchasing this; still not completely comitted to it because of the consideration I'd give to building a big order around it to justify shipping. That said I could leave it on my BBTS PoL from when my Artfires arrive.

    For the figure itself, the red 'rage' face looks very ... rendered? I mean like the illustrations of faces and hands in the Marvel G1 comics.

    I can't be sure but it looks to me like you might be able to push the arms together & rotate the legs to make the carrier mode more earth like. Awesome figure tho. They'd be my heroes if they made a blitzwing this nice.

    What is the boat mode supposed to be? Gundam ship? Seems they got lazy and said screw it when trying to make the aircraft carrier mode.

    or you could not be lazy and read the main Assaulter thread, which on the first post contains pix of the alternate carrier configuration which more strongly resembles a traditional aircraft carrier.

    This version is a hybrid Gundam-universe carrier and Macross Quarter inspired design.

    droooolllll

    Can't wait to receive mine. Overall, terrific! However, I don't exactly love the carrier mode because it's not one solid "platform"...

    I have bought next to every Fansproject item offered and Broadside here is on pre-order but I have to say...

    ...HOW do we not have a Blitzwing yet?! We have an Astrotrain and even an Octane, but neither Hasbro nor the third party folk have played with the idea?

    So instead of just angering Takara/Tomy/Hasbro, they've decided to also piss off whoever owns Macross? Sweet. Its like poking a bear with a stick isn't good enough so they are activly kicking the bear in the balls now.


    And no, I don't know who owns Macross. I haven't followed it in years. Just liked the 7 series.
