Agreed. Too bad the wings aren't flipped, but a minor point. Same with the nosecone, I think. (given, don't have it in hand.) Not perfect, but really really good. A high point for the Classics line, along with Springer. Bravo. Bring on the retools/repaints. (Sandstorm, Overcharge, SG all-of-the-above.)

Any other ideas for repaints or retools out of these guys? Overlord maybe? (IS a tank, jet, robot triple changer of sorts.) Impactor?

I like the IDW overlord retool of blitzwing idea. I think that would be perfect!

Personally I would think Flywheels would make the best retool from Blitzwing.

Also, the tab fix does not work on mine at all. I think I might break mine if I keep trying.

I did notice my shoulders are squared up all the time, unlike in P's video. I'm not sure if it makes a difference, but it feels like it does. Still an amazing figure, I just would be over the damn moon if I could fix the shoulders once and for all.
