    They face outwards in the movie, with the back of his doors connected to the body and the front of the doors sticking out

    I thought he actually just turned into a Supercobra? I certainly recall him in the movie having two rotors. The AH-1Z is a helicopter from 2010 and well, the Bumblebee movie does a great job of keeping the aesthetics and looks of the movie very much 80s. Hell, even the Sector 7 troop's gear is very, very much a 80s era US GI loadout.

    Dang, too bad they could replicate this in the transformation

    It would’ve made for a unique transformation from the usual Bumblebee format

    Do you think it would have been better off that they released this instead of the Helicopter Dropkick or is anyone actually happy for Helicopter Dropkick?

    Dropkick's transformation is bonkers. The doors actually swap places with one another during the transformation and the shoulder wheels are composed of his back wheels. You can see the wheels roll (literally) from the back of the car to the front during one of the transformations. It would take insane amounts of wizardry to replicate it in plastic form like to the point there would have to be a long hinge connecting one side of the car to the opposite door and vice versa with the other side to get them in the correct position.

    I constantly think of the day I get Studio Series Car mode Dropkick in hands. Just less than 6 months.
