Now where's that GIF Cary posted..? :lol:


I love MP Wheeljack. I have a list of top 10 car bot TFs of all time and he is near the top. But for all my love of that toy, that particular lancia is not a car I like that much. It always looked odd. Like a weird mix of a sports car and a race car. Doesnt take away anything from the toy being awesome though.

I never played that game (nor did I have that console growing up). That could explain it.

It was good back in the day, but hasn't really aged well and without the nostalgia not really worth your time. If I remember correctly it started life in the arcades.

I can't even separate Sega Rally and Wheeljack in my head. Either way, the Lancia Statos is a cool car on and off the track ;)^

I knew you'd get it Cary!! KNEW IT!!

And you better take that nonsense back about not holding up well!!

I'm moving MPM Barricade into the conversation, minus the feet hanging out of the back.

I agree with this, the MPM Barricade mold is a fantastic car

In all honesty, I'm a massive sucker for Hot Rod's car mode. However, the lackluster robot mode justifies the number 4 spot that you've given it.
