    Looks great. The only problem I actually have with the mold is that dropkick doesn't have thicc legs, unlike in the movie, But y'know, it's not the mpm so I'll let it pass

    So this is entirely incorrect. Literally the only kibble on the robot mode are the tail booms on the arms, the rotors on the back and the engine intake halves on the back. Every other piece of chopper mode integrates with the torso or limbs.

    If that’s the case they should’ve just released the better version from the beginning. There was no reason for toys like SS01, SS05, and helicopter Dropkick to exist other than for Hasbro to trick less informed people into double dipping by eventually releasing superior versions

    Yes! Dropkick is a beauty. I hope we see him in person at the upcoming toy fair. Also, with him being #46 in the Series (and Longhaul being #42), you gotta wonder who 43-45 will be.

    Helicopter dropkick exists because he...also transforms into a helicopter in the movie? Bam.

    I'll defend chopper Dropkick to death. It's the most accurate AH-1 SuperCobra attack helicopter in transformers form since G1 Whirl.

    Oh well I can agree with that, he looks like a good toy but in no ways a good Dropkick. I just find it annoying because he looks nothing like the character.

    Just went online to look at Dropkicks earth arrival scene to guage it pre-Triple Changer. Not bad, not bad at all.

    Dropkick actually comes with his Super Soaker of Death. Sweet! No blade, though.

    To me, this is a figure worth paying more on ebay to have it in advance.

    All jokes aside, I wonder why they couldn't just postpone deluxe Shatters release in order to change the head sculpt to a movie accurate version? I really don't think it would take more than 3-4 months to do so, but at the same time I'd love to see these great figures in person at a store like Walmart or Target, but that's the thing, at the stores in my area, get this, we have like full pegs of SS-01 Bumblebee and of course Crowbar. Hell, a lot of times I don't see Voyagers AND leaders.

    Now that is how you do Dropkick and I can't wait I was highly disappointed in Helicopter Dropkick. besides he was one of my favorites in the movie so I'm even more excited.

    Sorry but let me give you a brief backround on Blitzwing
    During the Great War, Blitzwing functioned as Diabla's handler during her stint as an Autobot spy, being the one who ultimately had her return to her faction. A later encounter with the Autobot Bumblebee ended in a humiliated Blitzwing being left for dead and swearing revenge on the scout. Several thousand years later, Blitzwing made his way to Earth during the Cold War and fell under the command of Malignus.

    In 1964, Blitzwing reunited with Bumblebee in London and eagerly began exacting his revenge. Unable to match the Triple Changer's strength, Bumblebee was forced to detonate a gas main and flee underground. The encounter with his thought-dead foe led to Bumblebee erroneously believing that Blitzwing was in charge of the Decepticon forces on Earth, only realizing his error when Blitzwing appeared among Malignus's troops. Energon Is Forever

    Unfortunately, Malignus' master plan began going sideways when Diabla suddenly turned on the Decepticons by saving Bumblebee from a Sharkticon. With Runabout butchered by Dead End and Astrotrain fleeing the battle out of disgust for Malignus' leadership, Blitzwing was the only one left to deal with the renegade Diabla. He was almost succeeded in killing her before Bumblebee tackled him, throwing off his aim and accidentally striking the nuclear warhead fired by Malignus. Blitzwing tried to use the chaos to fire at the unsuspecting Bumblebee only for P.R.O.G.R.A.M.M.E. agent David Reeve to warn his friend in time, the blast instead killing Dead End. Using Dead End's corpse as a shield, Blitzwing was able to survive the base's collapse and flew off into the night, being hunted by Bumblebee for the next two decades.
    In the comics he surely did

    Okay, so you want a figure of the Blitzwing from the prequel comics, not the Seeker who shared the same name in the movie.

    Dropkick looks good but I wish he had a faux helicopter chest and blades.
