dammit! he looks like he should be Lugnutz' snarky older brother. A Brain to his Pinky. I hadn't been interested before. :(

Damnit! The shark deco just sold it. Wasn't even mildly interested before.

I honestly don't understand all the flak this mold gets. It looks great, and now it's even Powerdive! Powerdive, man!

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!

A very nice and unexpected homage; there seems to be alot of love letters to the G2 era these days and I’m certainly not complaining.

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

Bought on site. I didn't like the head mold on Highbrow but this one looks AWESOME! :CON: :CON: :CON:

Another one for the G2 classics shelf.

I used to have a G2 Powerdive and I loved it.
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.

lol, gotta love that shark app. :lol: I like his helmet a lot more than Highbrow's, but I still prefer the Highbrow paintjob. Good-looking figure though!

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

Ooh, very nice. I didn't get a chance to get the last iteration of this mold, which looked quite nice, so it's cool that I'll be able to get this one. And I'm liking these visors, first Hot Shot and now Powerdive! Always nice to get those extra details.

I'm liking everything about this fig except for the purple weapons and pink propellers (easily solved with a can of silver paint) and the head.

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.

Ugh......what sexy ass alt mode this mold has! It just totally nostagicly screams to my ten year old self and the passion i had for WW2 era aircraft. That paint job is top notch and the attention to detail is appreciated. By myself anyways.

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.

Can the forearms be posed so that the wrists aren't misaligned with the rest of the arm?

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.

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.

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.

The shark decal, the overall deco, and the new head are all damn awesome. Not too crazy about the purple, though.


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

Hmm. That mold works better as a Decepticon, than an Autobot.

Those red propellers really screw it up. I mean red, seriously ??? It almost looks straight up WWII, but then they bust out with the kiddie colors. Arent asian releases supposed to be for collectors, not babbies. Im afraid TRU will add Geffory the Girafe on their version... :BANG_HEAD:

No, these toys are aimed at children ages 5 and up, not collectors or babies. The red propellers however are a nod to collectors (as is this entire line). This figure is partly based on G2 Powerdive, which has (ba-dum-tss) red propellers.

G2 Powerdive actually had either black or red rotor disks, the propellers were purple. The black disks are more rare.

And great, I'm sold to another one. I wish I lived in the US already... :sad:

I gota say, despite the brutal lack of poseability in the G2 form, I found the alt mode and robot mode WAY more sick (in looks).

If everything was on a nice balljoint and a few little fixes were made (like the shape of the hands), I'd take the G2 version any day.

I like this toy, I just don't get it why they called him - and colored him - like G2 Powerdive, who was a helicopter, instead of making him a hommage to G2 Ransack, who was the first propeller plane TF...

Probably to avoid confusion with G1 Ransack, a Deluxe Insecticon. IIRC he's supposed to appear in the FoC game.

Wow. To think that I had a Highbrow figure already that for some reason, I didn't care for so I sold it. Amazing what some good paint/new colors can do for a figure. :-? :D

As a Neo G1 Collector do I need this character? I know nothing about G2 and my only connection to G1 is through the cartoons from the 80s. I'm also currently watching headmasters.
Who is this guy? TF wiki doesn't have too much info.

If you haven't collected any toys by the likes of Universe Skyfall (G2 Skyjack), RotF Fearswoop (G2 Hooligan), or even that blue DotM Sideswipe (G2 Go-Bot Sideswipe), I'd say you're not losing much by skipping him.

I might still get this guy, I fear missing out and having to go on ebay when i learn more about a character and decide I Want him.
Thanks for the info! did G2 ever aired in the US?

Not a big fan of this mold especially the arms. Well, I may change my mind when I see it in person. Well, if they SHOW UP in the store.

G2 never had a proper cartoon, rather it was nothing more but assorted episodes from G1 Seasons 1 and 2 with CGI transition graphics. New stories instead appeared in the Marvel comics.
