    Sold!! The plane mode alone is amazing. The transformation seems pretty clever. I'm buying this on sight.

    That alt mode is AWESOME looking. That is enough for me to buy it based on that alone.

    Man, that altmode is badass! But I hate the robot mode :( 

    Will buy if a remold comes out with a better paint job. I like Jarodimus' idea

    So cool, can't wait for this guy. He looked awesome in person at Botcon. Great reuse of the "Highbrow" name too.

    If only his wingstubbins were a little bigger, he's kind of a "super deformed" plane otherwise.

    That doesn't mean I wont buy him as soon as I see him. I've been in love with twin fuselage fighters for as long as I can remember :D

    This figure is bought on sight. I just love the fact that we're getting more throwbacks to original WWI and II vehicles because we never really got a lot of that back in the day. It was always jets jets jets.

    I think what turns people off is the same thing that people disliked about Stratosphere. It wasn't quite movie, wasn't quite Classics or G1. But that's the same reason why I like this figure, because it has a different appeal. And he will look excellent next to Stratosphere.

    I love this toy! The vintage propeller plane mode gets a big two thumbs up from me, I love authentic looking vehicle modes like those. I'd be extremely happy if we could get more classic cars and vintage planes like this guy, Lugnut, Ransack and Hubcap. Thinking about it the fact I can name four from recent memory is awesome in itself!

    The robot mode looks great as well, but the one thing I really would love to see is kind of silly - I'd love to see him with a scarf, Biggles style. Digging the double chainguns and the arm mounted rotors. He looks like a proper veteran soldier 'bot.

    I'm losing my interest in this guy fairly quickly. I mean when I saw him in the Botcon pics he was awesome! But here he's just kinda, meh. I think it's his arms that are killing it with the wierd hand placement and super limited looking articulation. I'll just get Tomahawk.

    I am less excited for this guy, his arms just don't look that great. I love the goggles gimmick though.
