    Terrible toy, doesnt look anything like the actual chevy car or resemble any actual real car really.

    Huge waste of an exclusive. They haven't even released Skids, or their own character, Crosscut yet.

    This figure.. along with all the comments so far... including my own comment.... FAIL.


    The "Farmaggeddon" set would be the way to go if you wanted this figure.

    Looks pretty good, but the set with O.P. looks cool too. Is there even a difference?

    I actually like the deco a lot, but I'd rather just get a "Takara'd" Generations figure instead :(

    So my choices are 1. chase down a mold I like in a box set with shitty movie toys I detest, or 2. chase down a mold I like in a package by itself.


    Whatever shall I choose? Unless it's a severely different paint scheme, in which case I may tear up a touch. Just a touch.

    I dig it and appreciate that it's NOT a Chevy. Why go for such precise screen accuracy now? Not one of the toys has actually managed it so far... I'm just saying, why break the pattern?

    Close enough, neither Hasbro or Takara are going to make a non-Transforming accurate vehicle figure just for a TRU promotion.

    Where is the goodyear and red bull decals on the car? Looks close, but the car itself can be better since they have the rights to Chevrolet for the toys. What a waste...
