    Sweet, I hope you dig 'em! I've only been disappointed in one Nonnef set, and that was his Nightbird set as all the handles were too big. I've bought almost everything else he's put out since CW and haven't been disappointed outside of that single instance.

    Smokescreen and runamuck. Sunstreeker is cool but the all yellow gets old in a day or three

    Unless you have and love Seige sideswipe then pass on smokescreen and pick him up later he’s everywhere

    Orange is such an odd color, but Fasttrack seems to pull it off quite nicely.
    B02316F9-017F-4195-8169-89D2A94AE067.jpeg
    Any bright colors mixed with gray and black would be tricky and could be very unappealing. But I must admit, Fasttrack has just the right splashes of color in just the right places to stand out proudly. The teal colored windows in the chest and the red visor make this figure really pop. Not just impressed with his color scheme, Fasttrack overall is just a really well designed figure.

    He’s got great range of motion and feels quite solid for a figure that......*in a whispering voice*...parts forms. His accessories are pretty cool and has lots of fun options to wield them. There’s that versatility I like in a toy.

    Out of all the weaponizers, Fasttrack definitely seems more like a drone than any others, at least in his very compact alt mode. It’s actually not too bad for a squat Roomba with orange wheels and some gun arms just kinda hanging out. But something about how his coloring, how his pieces connect, and how his cockpit section unfolds, gives me Starcom vibes as I was playing with him. Came up with a couple variations for a space rover that felt a bit meatier.

    It’s a work in progress, but Fasttrack further enforces the fun and playability of the weaponizers we’ve gotten since the Siege line.

    I like Fasttrack a lot. He looks like a ninja-bot and a space knight/ranger rolled into one. The ambiguous design aesthetics and bold color choices really make Fasttrack a fun figure.

    I haven't been buying much lately, but yesterday was my birthday, so I splurged and added Starscream, Grapple, and Cliffjumper to my Siege collection.
