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

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...

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.
