*sigh*

This is coming from P.Prime, who
a) brought us "first looks" at Shockblast, in-package Ravage, in-package Windcharger, in-package Wheeljack, in-package Shockblast and many, many other prototypes, test shots and leaked in-package samples
b) should really, really know the difference between a kitbash and a genuine proto.

I really love how with every new proto, there's always someone who insists it's fake, despite it coming from the same source as the previous ones.

Speaking of, there are more "easter egg" decals:

"Thrust Power"
"Dinotron Racing Fuel"
"Hyperlinq Racing"
"Cybertronian Radials"
"Destron Oil"

Please don't attempt to compare of Alt Windcharger's head to G1 Windcharger. His Japanese name is "Overdrive", because that's who he is supposed to.

No s**t Sherlock. I said the head on "Dragstrip" looks more like the head of G1 Windcharger than Alt Windcharger's head did...digging on the fact that they should have stuck with Overdrive for the Alternator name because he looks nothing like G1 Windcharger (which, as you pointed out, is because the head was obviously sculpted after G1 Overdrive).

Do you always have to be so condescending?

If it is Drag-Strip then it would mean that both him and Dead-End are re-paints of cars that were originally red!

"OMG'ed itz de conspircy theory!"

Looks kick ass if you ask me.

If it me or is the gun/shield different from the Windcharger one? The WC one had the ltwo little bump were the barrel was supposed to be, this one doesn't have it. And if you askm me it does look like a weapon ... kinda like phaser weapon ...

Um,back to topic, I usually hate yellow in my Tfs, but this one is awsome. I don't care if this is Megatron, Dragstrip,Gobot,Dark Bumblebee, Swindle revisted, Yasser Arafat, Muhamad Kadafi or Kicker.

He looks awsome and that's that! Thus, he shall enter my collection....YEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSs

EDIT: This was written before Tempest posted. Apperantly, he got back to topic before i did.

Nope. He's just holding it backwards. The bumps are still there.

If they'd just remold the damn engine, it wouldn't look so ridiculous, but the fact that a part is very clearly missing is what's really lame...though not having a weapon at all isn't much cooler.

I don't mean to burst anyone's bubble, but for those of you in anticipation to find out who it is, expect to be sorely disappointed if this is accurate.

It's BBTS. At this point, it doesn't matter what they put up, I'm not believing it until it's posted somewhere a little more reliable.

No one was. It's probably meant to be short for "Decepticon Wingcharger". This only means that BBTS doesn't know the name either.

Look I'm not saying P. Prime is wrong I. I like the look of it but based on this line of T.F.'s they are supposed to be earth based companys and earth based cars. I personally have never bought cybertronian tires or destron oil for my vehicle. I like it, I like alternators, I just don't believe they would start making up names for companies that don't exist.

Take a close look at Side Swipe's, Dead End's, Hound's or Swindle's tires then...

I think Roadstripe hit this nail squarely on the head.

BBTS is just trying to be clever.
