Okay, so, Leadfoot? Check. Powerdive? Check! Manta Ray? Sort-of check (see: PCC Undertow). Now we just need Ransack and the Rotor Force rides again!

I particularly like how the 'visor down' look emulates the classic head sculpt.

What do you guys think of this mould? It looks alright from pics, but I feel the thights are kinda wide and round or something. Can the forearms be posed so that the wrists aren't misaligned with the rest of the arm?
The paintjob looks awesome and I love the new head and visor. The way the red eyes show through the red visor is amazing!
The purple guns will need some paint imo.
Triple "Damn" comment starters above, haha.

ROTF Ransack fits in with this whole vibe...

Meh, they share no commonalities besides the name and the fact that they're both planes.

Not a fan of that super-wide mouth, if that's what it is. Maybe I could fill that line up with some epoxy or cement, sand it down and repaint it to get rid of the line.

Heh, I'm the other way: I love this mold but do not like these colors The shark-nose is great though. Will buy if he comes to US retail.

A shame about the bot mode and all it's subtle flaws though. They aren't egregiously offensive by any means but for me the hips, feet and forearms break the spell for me.
Still a really cool mold nevertheless.

They hips are kind of wide on this mold. You don't notice it much when he's posed with his legs bent; but when they're just straight, it looks kind of awkward.

Yes, you can tilt the rotors such that they're pointing about 45° with respect to the line from the elbow to the wrist. This leaves a bit of a gap in his forearm; but it still looks much better.

As do the propellers. Highbrow's box art had the propeller hubs painted red; very unfortunate that was missing from the finished version of the figure. A bit of that gold paint on Powerdive's propeller hubs would really have popped.
I have Highbrow; and in spite of a few goofy bits (the wide hips, the wonky forearms), it's a really cool mold. His feet are insanely posable. I tend to move the ankles down at an angle and move the "toes" up so that he's resting mostly on them.
And since I already have the mold, I'd probably only pick up Powerdive at a significant discount. Powerdive has a good head sculpt (though I like Highbrow's as well) and the paint job is nice. But having no particular affection for G2, the character really doesn't mean anything to me.

I hope we see more vintage alts down the line. A Corsair like G2 Ransack would be killer.
