These 3 modification is a must to make him look like an Autobot.

But as usual, Hasbro will take the easy way of simple recolor. That's it.

Actually he already had an Autobot head that should have been another camera head if it was to be accurate to the game.

I was hoping for a yellow repaint.
Then reprolabels could make pink flames and a "pu**y wagon" logo.

Dropkick is a really good figure. I was going to stick with only movie characters too, but I was glad to get him. Can't wait to see what this one looks like.

Why would an Autobot be an exact twin of a Decepticon? Did he scan the face of the Decepticon too?

He is red when your playing the Decepticon campaign and he is purple when you play the Autobot campaign.

They’re both Dropkick in the game. One is Autobot Dropkick and the other Decepticon Dropkick.
BTW I forgot to mention Decepticon Dropkick has a camera head in the game, but they gave the toy the Autobot head that the Autobot drones had in the game (Autobot Swindle, Dropkick, Payload and Dreadwing have the same head).

That's cool. They should have given Swindle a head too. That's the only thing stopping from buying that figure.

Dropkick is great, good articulation, fun transformation, overall worth ten dollars.

As for the TF game, I was just playing it a second ago, pretty fun in my opinion, plus its getting cheaper (only thirty dollars for PS2).

Dropkick figure is one of the best TF toys. Probably just second to Landmine.

I have both.

Both are extremely posable. Far more posable than any other TF toy i ever encountered.

I'd say, Landmine has the edge.

The hunchback of Mirage makes his head movement quite limited. Landmine don't have this kind of problem.

Aside from that, Landmine's proportions, movements, and posability are more human-like. As if, it's a human figure wearing a metal costume with a football helmet.

And here's the winning edge. Landmine has grasping hands!

Thanks! Hopefully now that the Christmas rush is said and done I’ll be able to find one for myself.

Good luck on that. There's a steady stream of restock of Landmine. It won't be difficult to find him at this time.
