    A fake Countach can have a spoiler without fears of lawsuits. It was a factory option, not standard issue. If Lamborghini is gonna sue, the lack spoiler wont hurt their case in court. That would be the equivalent of Hasbro doing a TLK Dreadbot and adding a surfboard rack to the VW Bus mode to avoid trademark issues. An accessory option would be irrelevant.

    Still in stock on pulse and only $47 and change. I think I like the look of Siege Sideswipe better, and no attachment to Skywarp, so a easy pass for me, but I know lots excited about another earth vehicle mode, so yay!

    It is a fact with the advantage of the Airazor mold.

    Although before Takara had made the animation error with his feet compared to the figure, but this new one from Kingdom was able to reverse it.

    And it is not the first time, another case is with Twinstrike from Beast Hunters, the instructions of the Oversize version of him are contradicted.

    I would call it: "Inverted Feet Syndrome". :oops:

    The Pulse PO was $47.99. Did that change? This seems more like an Amazon fuck up.


    Who said I hate 3Ps? I'm just saying Hasbro has no obligation to accomodate 3Ps.

    Also, all the rage about a spoiler doesn't stop to consider...maybe they can't? Like, the box makes no reference to being a licensed Lambo:

    [​IMG]

    So people who are going off about how the MPs had spoilers or whatever, those are licensed Lambo alts. Maybe HasTak couldn't get any closer to an accurate Lambo because then they'd either have to jack up the price for the license or get the figure sued out of existence (or even make design sacrifices elsewhere).

    I'm getting this, because I love Sideswipe, but it's under protest. I'm not seeing so much difference that it's a must buy on its own, and I'm expecting Amazon to price correct, but it's still pretty good overall.

    The way the WFC Sideswipe mold works doesn't easily allow for a spoiler, since it would interfere with the knees and transformation.

    He'll keep saying it daily until the figure arrives on his doorstep. And then he'll keep saying it.

    That is a good point. Amazon's PO policy is that if the 1st party listing price drops at any point all POs are dropped to match it. So if you can't get a Pulse PO for whatever reason, you've got until November for Amazon to fix the listing (or Pulse gets more stock). And then you can decide if you still want it at the Amazon price or want to ditch the listing.

    Sideswipe, huh?

    I smell a Selects Tigertrack, a Red Alert, a Pulse Deep Cover, and a Selects Clampdown...

    What a shock. Gotta love this new scheme of scaring customers into buying pre-orders.

    I don't know if that means it's sold out, or it means they haven't gotten stock to preorder yet

    I think they look pretty good! Sideswipe looks Sideswipe-y and Skywarp looks about as good as you can get from a new-head-repaint of Airazor. Still shocked that there's no news on T-Wrecks yet though...

    I really hope that's the case and the price is lowered. Either way, I'm buying this more for Skywarp, and Sideswipe is probably gonna ve trade bait, since I like the Siege one a LOT more. Same goes for Earth Mirage.
