Barrage, Weirdwolf, Detour. Works for me as Drap Strip. But I do so hope it's Rumble...

I was thinking more who'd fit with a darker colour or silver.

Weirdwolf?!

Ah, right. Read the entire thread, Brend.

Weirdwolf's yellow...

Of course we could be swerved entirely on it. A good chunk of the Tracks BTs are yellow, whilst half the Meisters are red... just because this one's yellow doesn't mean all of them will be.

Well, the silver would obviously work well for old bullethead, but I can't think of a specific Decepticon who'd fit with something dark. Would be more pleasing to the eyes than yellow and we already have Swindle for our yellow Decepticon needs.

Rumble or Frenzy would certainly fit with darker colors.

He's more of a tan colour, and he'd be on the reserve list even if I was trying to collect the set of Alternators...

I don't particularly like rally driving, but they're a bit more interesting than some of the single-colour "road legal" designs.

Rumble would be interesting, but Windcharger is already black and red. Lilac... eh, I dunno. And there's already quite a few red and blue designs.

Because the 'Con ranks have black, yellow, yellow it seems odd now, but there'll be more released. And there's numerous reds amongst the 'Bots.

Black (Dead End)
Yellow (Swindle)
Black (Jaguar)
Blue-ish (Shocklaserblastwave)
Yellow (whoever this is)

To be pedantic... which I always find fun.

It's a nice piece, but the "dirt" effects scream one thing to me, street drag racer.

Something straight out of The Fast and the Furious. :rolleyes:

He may look tan in photos, but I can assure you that he's quite yellow.

Well first off look at the decals on this cybertronian tires or something like that. Come on look at smokescreen not one of his decals is bogus. These cars are modeled after existing cars right and existing companys. I would have to say it's a good photo job or a really good kit bash either way it does look good

Was thinking Drag Strip lined up with those Auros can lay hands on in his neck of the woods. Is kitty out?

But yeah, there's another black there, and Shockers isn't going to shake the palette up much.

Anyone reckon we'll see a racing green in the line? Orange cars aren't seen much, either, and this emphasis on red/blue/black/silver is going to make things pretty dull if they keep sticking to single-colour designs for the most part. Unless we get some non-car designs, anyway.

I can't think of any orange Transformer cars off-hand. Technobots?

There's a bloody awful G2 one, IIRC. Might have been called 'Gobots' or 'Skram'... can't remember exactly, and tfu.info has no bandwidth until tomorrow.

Axelerator Windbreaker (was the figures US name. Can't remember its UK name) was orange in G2

Maybe we can have the Hardee's car again. What was his name... Windbreaker or something?

EDIT: Great minds think alike, I guess...

Aye, as was Gobots. I think the Euro one was red...

Greaser was orange too. And Backstreet. Hasbro knows how the fans have been foaming for an Alternators Backstreet.

Yep, but don't forget Dead End and Swindle. Too early to say much, I think.

Anyhow, Dragstrip/Who-Have-You looks sweet. It might just be that specific picture, but he looks much better proportioned than Windcharger. I'm certainly waiting for this one.

(As an abrupt aside to Auros' stump obsession - is it unreasonable to think that Windcharger, being given deliberate upgrades in his new body, would be granted an external magnetic field projector so as to quit knocking himself out? Can't say why this guy has no gun [and I sure hope that changes] not knowing the character, but I do hope my supposition can quell the neurosis a little. )

The only TF I remember with the name Gobots was part of the baby pre school TF line which was red and blue/green.

The Windbreaker figure I'm thinking of came out alongside Rapido, Zap, Tornado, Snipe/Afterburner, Terradive etc just before G1 ended. They were repackaged when G2 started.

Windbreaker's name was slightly different in the UK but I can't remember what it was. I used to have the figure as well.

So...thinking about possible "original" Autobots this was supposed to be (aside from the ones already mentioned). It does have a bit of a Bumper look to it. Also, it seems to share some similarities to Blurr (minus the head crown thing). But both of those have the helmet thing and a chin block...although only Bumper has a visor.

Of course...comparing it to Windcharger (G1) this head looks more like Windcharger than Alt Windcharger's does.

Fizzle is another interesting choice...but all it really has is the forehead visor thing.

Of course...there's always the fact that the body looks just like Counterpunch. heh heh
