It's amazing how well the Classics Silverbolt mold translated to Darkwind. One of the best repaints into a new character EVER!

I really like Darkwind. Though, I do kinda wish that they'd make a Hydra version of this as well.

I agree with Duke of Luns, Silverbolt made an awesome updated Darkwing. I had to buy this one when I saw it, as the Darkwing/ Dreadwind duo bring back fond memories from my childhood. If only we could have a Dreadwind that could combine with him. Oh well, I'll take what I can get!

I pick both of these up when they where first was released and i still play/Transform them whenever i get a chance. Darkwind looks good in this mold and so does Skyfall, but i wish Hasbro would have done something different with each one they released. Even if it was a new head sculp and a different weapons, i would be happy with that.
Anyway, nice homeage there and great figures.

About Countdown, just a awesome figure all the way around! Gotta love that BMF Gun!! He makes my Deceptions shake in their boots when comes on the battlefield...

Both are awesome redecos and updates of their respective figures. I imagine big Countdown as how he was before being turned into a Micromaster.

Awesome galleries, par usual. :)
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

Funny you should say that. When Silverbolt first came out I remember a lot of posts saying how terrible it was, mostly due to the simple transformation. Personally that's one of the reasons I love the figure, cause you can transform it easily in under 30 seconds.

He also stays together a lot better than fellow Ultra Powerglide, and has better stability. Complex is not always better.

He has the rock n roll lips........

I think it's a good mold though. Solid figure.

I completely love Countdown though. The repaint is a good one, and any figure with a cannon that big is total effing win.
