Thought the jet mode looked a bit dodgy, but by god that robot mode has just ****ing nailed it.

Agrees with all three- I've never really thought of Silverbolt and Darkwing having similar heads but for some reason it just rocks my world. Can Countdown actually stand up unaided with that bloody big thing on his shoulder?

The original mold could mainly due to it's Shaq-sized feet.

With those two Incinerators behind him, he quite reminds me of Gundam in a strange way.

Why's that? to me, i can see resemblance to Guncannon, but only by the red and the shoulder cannon.

It's probably just the colors. Also the head reminds me of some Gundam model kit, I just can't remember what it was...

If somebody makes some treads for it, it would look half like Guntank.

I'm late coming to this discussion, but I'd just like to throw in that I think the Silverbolt mould, which I originally thought to be awful, actually works perfectly for Darkwing! Whereas Silverbolt looked totally rubbish, Darkwing looks amazing!

Countdown is a great nostalgia piece for me, and I think the mould works remarkably well as a homage to a wee moon-buggy driven mobile rocket launch pad. (I dunno a better mould that could deliver on this...) The colours work nicely.

Still, money, space etc. Neither will make it on to my display shelf (or storage boxes).

Nice and different repaints though!

I like Countdown for it's nostalgia value as well, but i think it would have benefited from being a tiny bit smaller.And the fact i can't tell which part of his car mode is a reference to what (besides the cannon, which is obvious), i would have liked a different colour layout. Either all red or all blue, for me.

Does anyone else fell it would have been good if this whole thing was blue, and we got a free red repaint of Comettor with it?

Well that's just what i was meaning. I saw also a vaque resemblance to that Normal Soldier guy due to the red and the helmet, you know, the one Cliffjumper features on his portret. On the other hand it was just my feeling because I have seen this trio in roughly the same pose in a game and it gave me a Gundamish feeling...(I know pretty lame what I am talking about)
