    I too would have bought if he had a different alt mode.

    I'm not boycotting y'all from buying it though, calm the f down.

    The AE86 alt mode is the only reason I have much interest in this figure, because I don’t really give a damn about the character. Even making it a Silvia— which is a cool enough vehicle— would have curbed my enthusiasm to the point that I probably wouldn’t have considered buying it.

    He looks really good... if I had one specific nitpick that keeps bugging me & spoiling his appearance, it would be these ugly corners and tabs jutting out of the canopy in bot mode:

    @RVDA, any chance the design could still be updated to make those panels part of the hood/shoulders instead, or fold away? He's pretty close to perfect otherwise; fantastic work!

    As a classic Volvo enthusiast, I love to see a TF made from The Saint’s iconic P1800, but it’s a couple of decades too old to fit into the discussion, perhaps.

    Give the bot modes (and altmode drivers) a helmet head colored after Seb and Mark so peeps will double dip for scene recreation :lolol

    Semi off topic, but I wish there is more of an F1/TF crossover aside from the Mirage and Dragstrips (on which the latter doesn't even have the car's correct livery). Would love Ferrari/Schumacher, Mclaren/Senna, Red Bull/Vettel or Verstappen homage transformers.

    I’d buy the Verstappen one just for the pleasure of crashing it into a wall…

    Fixed that, Super Max FTW!

    Going back on topic, I'm assuming like the Eris Megatron/Tarn this is gonna be using the same body with a different alt mode hence the Delorean BTTF tease?

    Heh, I'm the complete opposite. Modern cars were pretty much all we got at all aside from very select characters like 2007 Bumblebee for the entire 2000s-2010s until they started Earthrise. The vaguely retro alt modes there were a breath of fresh air even if they weren't generally super accurate. I do like a lot of 90s and earlier 2000s cars but by the mid 2010s they kinda start to all look alike (damn you aerodynamics and safety regulations!) and especially a lot of the supercars feel way too gawdy and over-designed with so many extra vents and intakes and weird little angles. But maybe I'm just overly critical on modern supercars because I have a hard time disassociating them from influencer grindset-bro types like Andrew Tate and trashy rich people in Dubai.
    Ooh, I'd definitely buy an Arcee like that, and I like the idea of an Aston Martin for P/CP, although I'd recommend the V8 Vantage, which still has the Bond connection but is a little closer to the Fiero and looks better in blue:
    [​IMG]
    I like the Miura for Knock-Out too, but if you'd rather give that to Sunstreaker then I think a 1960s Ferrari like this might be even better for him:
    [​IMG]
    And I'd also like to see Lockdown as a modded out AMC Javelin, with an exposed engine and big side exhausts and maybe some spikes (although as long as he still has them in robot mode I wouldn't mind leaving them off the car mode). With the little curves above the front and rear fenders it feels like a more grounded, less cartoony take on his Animated car mode with its exaggerated curves:
    [​IMG]
    And lastly, Barricade as an old Mustang in the California Highway Patrol livery:

    Given that there is a transformer that uses that mustang as an alt-mode, it’s possible. IMG_0486.jpeg IMG_0487.jpeg also you can’t tell me that natron here isn’t based on smokescreen in some way.

    Yeah I get that. most truly modern cars are just way too over done or extreme for me to really like much of what’s being released. ‘Cept things like the new Bronco and Mustang, those are still cool

    FREAKING YES GIVE ME TWENTY


    I actually got to see an SSP in person at Ponies In The Smokies last month. So cool.

    I mentioned this in the BTTF thread, but the doors in particular would need to be completely changed to gullwings, so I doubt it's a remold. Also, aside from the wrong doors, a remold would likely end up in a bulbous-looking DeLorean.

    Like Terminator Arcee? :) 
    As for Lockdown, the AMC Javelin is an excellent choice. I have a wild, non-car idea:

    And then, here are ideas for Gears and Soundwave:

    I was talking more so physical toys of that alt mode, not what’s been done in comics and what not. Just meant that it’s been done before in toy form.

    Or, Knockout could finally be the car he is actually based on….

    Aston Martin DBS V12.
