Already have Dreadwind from the GoD set, most likely pass on this one. Looks nice though.

I can't remember, have they done a Hardhead yet?

yeah they could repaint Onslaught as Hardhead, doesnt he look alot like his ATV mode in the IDW comics after all? And repaint Powerglide as Tailwind, except dont do a crappy job of it :P actually make it a nice blend of blue, black and grey instead of straight blue so he looks bland
Im secretly plannin to take over the world... care for a country?

Hmm.. while I'd love to bolster my Decepticon ranks, I think he's just going to look to similar to Silverbolt to justify.

The head is a fairly good match, but I'd have preferred if it looked more like this:

As a kid, I had Dreadwind, but never managed to get Darkwing. Apparently Universe is trying to put me in the exact reverse situation. I feel an ebay purchase of BotCon Dreadwind coming on.

Too bad they didn't give him a real visor. But if Darkwing can hook up with Dreadwind - I'm sold.

Pretty damn nice repaint. Could easily be tempted by this one.

As for a repaint of Onslaught, a Flak would be really nice to go with Overload.

Definitely not my cup of tea here. But I don't like the mold to begin with so no big surprise.

I couldn't see the 2nd image, but the first looks good...
I wish there was a different color used for the visor.
Something to make it "pop" like that red would've been awesome.
Suppose that wouldn't be too difficult to paint.
I've passed on Silverbolt so far, but I may have to get this.

Not a bad resemblence, considering how they messed up homages to Powerglide, Dropshot, Overload and Crushbull by getting the colors all wrong.

I am quite surprised on how well this works as a repaint! My hand is now forced to hand over the rediculous amount for the 07 botcon set. Yeah right and maybe monkeys will fly out of my butt! :P

I've got my Silverbolt here and his hands look exactly the same as Darkwing's.. unless I'm missing something...

Anyway, I can see myself caving when I see him at retail and hoping someone makes a custom upgrade set with a new head and weapon.

I love all of the later era G1 homages we've been getting the last couple of years. Personally, I've been getting a little burned out on homages of the 84 and 85 lines. It's nice to see Targetmaster Cyclonus, Dreadwind, Darkwing and some Micromasters getting some love lately. I think this is a perfect repaint. It makes me want to get my Dreadwind and Darkwing galleries back up on the site (they've been missing since the site crash in September). Kudos to the designers for this one :)
