Universe Darkwing Robot Mode Pics

Weapon: Rust Ray Gun
Thanks to TF08.net for letting all of us, the fans, see our first images of Universe Darkwing in robot mode.

This figure is very well represented as a straight repaint of Universe Silverbolt into a great homage to G1 Darkwing. This is even better news for those that already have the pricey exclusive from the Botcon 2007 Games of Deception Set: Dreadwind.

It's just a repainted Silverbolt head, but it's close enough to Darkwing that it's more an observation than a complaint.

Yes - this is a repaint that I can get behind. I wonder when it will come out? Should we expect to see an Onslaught repaint to keep this figure company in the cases? Any thoughts on who Onslaught could be repainted into?

They could probably find another military themed former Micromaster to repaint Onslaught as to go with Dropshot and Stormcloud.

Wow he looks amazing for a straight repaint. He's a perfect homage to the original toy to boot. I'm considering trying to get Botcon Dreadwind even though my Silverbolt towers over my Jetfire.

I've been thinking if they would remold Onslaughts head for Prime, he would make a great body for War Within Prime. Just a thought.

I'd actually like to see a G2 inspired Onslaught.

Also, does anyone know when we can expect to see this on shelves?

It's kinda funny.

I had no interest at all in Silverbolt, But I really want to buy Darkwing. Amazing what a repaint can do to a mold.

Amazing or not, I thought the same about Powerglide/Stormcloud and now my Classics 'Cons have another flyer while my 'Bots don't. But I like Silverbolt, so at first I said, "Hell no!" like most repaints, but now I say, "Well, maybe." Looks kinda good. :-?

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.
