MP-53+B Diaburnout
What a clunky name. Anyway, this is the black version of Skids homaging the original Diaclone line. It looks stunning! The black makes this odd compact car look very sexy, and the robot mode is very nice. I kind of prefer the battlemask face the Legacy Speedia version has, but with MP Reboost and MP Crosscut (which is next on my list, to pair up with Road Rage) having that version of the Skids face, I'm guessing Takara thought they had that covered. The sculpt is nice, but looks a bit thin and small. A minor gripe on an otherwise excellent figure. Also comes with a scooter and a marmalade figure representing some hologram possibly of some cartoon character I don't care about.

Flame Toys Windblade Model Kit
I've never been happy with any of Windblade's toys. It's the alt mode mainly - a sleek fighter jet with these daft looking VTOL turbines just doesn't work for me. Controversy aside, the model kit has always appealed as it nixes the alt-mode and gives us a very nice looking robot action figure. So this is my Windblade now and it's lovely.

Rise Of The Beasts Deluxe Cheetor
The mainline deluxe release of the figure, which like Airazor, looks nothing like the Studio Series / Film version, but is still pretty banging. It's an evolution of the Kingdom design, but much much better realised. The sculptiing is excellent and both robot and cheetah modes are excellent. Only downside? The weird use of a liberal amount of brown for the robot legs/ rear of the beast which just looks odd.

That's kind of what I like about the TR WIndblade (which is the only one I kept) -- that it's a utilitarian design. The original and the RID one are spindly and insubstantial by comparison, and whilst the arms on the TR do somewhat continue that the rest has a bit of character beyond anime stereotypes. The Legacy Minerva strikes quite a good balance too, unlike the earlier but recent shellformer Arcee/Elita-1.
