Darkwind turned out pretty awesome-lookin'.
Though I admit that's a pretty versatile mold for repaints.

Countdown... eh... not so much. Looks like a bunch of building blocks somewhat.

I might have to grab Countdown, because the 'micromasters as normal TFs' Classics/Universe has going amuses me. And the recolor, much like Dropshot and Roadbuster, looks better than the original Cybertron figures to me.

I think Darkwing is a must have for me, since I have Botcon Dreadwind.

I think I'll get the Silverbolt repaint. I passed on Silverbolt and this repaint is fairly nice. I'm trying to mostly stick to Decepticons these days in an attempt to cut back; I'm just totally running out of room and I prefer the look of the Decepticons anyway.

And the name confusion is complete, now we have every combination possible:

Dreadwind & Dreadwing
Darkwing & Darkwind

Darkwing is good but I would have preffered they repainted red alert as DoubleDealer

still waiting for them to do Onslought as Hardhead, though he would need remoulding

Damn. Only Toys 'R' Us? Such awesome needs to be mainline, not exclusive.

Darkwind is nice in bot mode but I don't have Dreadwing so I may not get him.

Kinda hoping there's a Henkei Dreadwing.

Well, New Zealand usually gets some Toys 'R' Us exclusives into Toy World (both of whom are probably linked) so I might have a chance of getting these cheap but either way, they're mine. But Darkwind? What kind of retards work at Hasbro?

Darkwing and Dreadwind combine to form Dreadwing. Darkwind is nobody. Botcon Darkwing... This should have been Dreadwind. I could understand if it was copyright but... wtf........ At least call him Dreadwing and say for some weird reason that some random Dreadwind and the Botcon Darkwing have some how randomly been melted down into this mold. I don't know but Darkwind makes NO SENSE!

As this is clearly Darkwing, I'm not sure how calling it Dreadwing would have been an improvement on Darkwind. "Look, there's Dreadwing and Dreadwind!"

They look great.

I like repaints. They make my heart feel good.

But is Countdown Voyager or Ultra class?
