    Kind of wish it didn't use blue for the robot bits, since Brakedown used the same color there...

    Okay, so we have Breakdown, a couple custom Wildriders, and now something passable as Dragstrip. Where's the Dead End repaint? :lol

    Dead End?

    I love that close up of his head. I actually thought it was a new head until I looked at my Breakdown. :lol

    Looks very nice, but as with most scouts, I don't really see a reason to get a repaint for now.

    I can't explain why I want this 1000x more than Breakdown, I just do.

    Me too, and that's pretty much the only reason I'm buying it. I'm not entirely crazy about the mold itself, but I like the colors

    Yeah, if I cared about Skystalker, I'd buy it. It's a pretty clear homage (and a very close, homage, too). However, the colors don't do much for me aesthetically. I would buy the mold again in some other color scheme, though. Maybe we'll get an autobot out of it with a head remold or something.

    I dig it, more so then the bland looking original white one.

    Of course I'd like it in red or lambo yellow even more. ;)

    Could just as much be an homage to Crossword, from Puzzler, as to Skystalker.

    He looks pretty cool, although had it been in Dead End's scheme it would have been an even cooler homage since G1 Dead End transforms so similarly to G1 Breakdown.

    Still, the orange w/ white doesn't look too bad, but something needs to break up that orange on the hood. Going for the Skystalker homage and putting a 'Con symbol on that hood might be the way to go.

    Crossword didn't have purple as a secondary color though. Granted, Skystalker had a lighter shade of purple, and a gold face, but I assume the darker colors are to make it "more movie-ish"

    Someone posted this earlier.

    I'll just reiterate what I said about the head. The colors just bring out so much detail that I had to look at my Breakdown to see if it was a new head. :lol
