    I got a question for you guys. I remember as a kid getting a transformer toy that was a Blitzwing KO from my dad. The thing was that that this specific KO had the jet mode but the second alt mode wasn't a tank. It was a tractor / bulldozer with a cheap plastic shovel attached to it. It was a light gray in color and some parts were dark olive green.

    Anyone remembers this or had it? I'm also looking for some photos so please post them if you have.

    Thanks.

    A knockoff in Diaclone colors? Weird.

    Never seen this KO before, but to be honest, that's a lot better than I would have expected. Both alt modes still hold up well.
    Blitzwing IS my favorite triplechanger, and IMHO the Diaclone colors are even better (more realistic) than the Transformers colors.

    I agree and if you look at the close up photos, even the stickers say "Diaclone. Wish I could find this one on Ebay soon.

    I've never seen a jet with an enormous street racing spoiler before, and now I wish it would happen in real life. :lol

    Yeah, a big spoiler like that would help Blitzwing maintain grip on the road.

    In jet mode.

    Wait... what?

    :D
