Unless I've been missing something on Evac, thats a nice little retool.

Seems to me to just be a good re-paint job.

It's a great repaint of an already near perfect figure.

Would like to see Evac done in Springer style greens though.

I wasn't sure about this mold for Blades at first, but I think that sodding great rotor makes a great melee weapon. And I'm sure Blades will use that winch cable as a garotte far more than he uses it to rescue people. :twisted:

Actualy I was talking about the rudders, I had no idea they moved.

Well, now that regular Evac can do that too, I don't even feel slightly compelled to by him again.

Well if thats the case...

I'd like to see Reissue Turbomasters and Predator Jets.

:P

Can't believe I forgot about that figure coming with Ratbat!

I prefer Springer, but this one is also very nice.

Agreed...
I think I could definitely pass on this.

In a slightly related topic, I ust saw this knockoff on ebay, looking closer, I realized it's a Predator Jet.

Weird, I'm thinking the opposite. I think it's because grey plastic always looks a bit naff recently.

Like I need another repaint of small little Evac toy.

:???: You DO know it's a repaint of the Voyager Evac?

I'd buy this mold again and again. How about releasing it as Whirl and as Vortex?

If there's going to be more helicopters, I want a Bell 222. Possibly with hidden guns in the wings, and a missile pod in the belly... :grin:

Nice to see Blades get a decent toy, though I would have preferred his original colour scheme. Maybe the Henkei version, eh?

One question though - is this figure closer in scale to Classics/Universe Prowl or G1/reissue Prowl? Not really sure how large one of those helicopters is supposed to be and personally would love him in scale with G1 Prowl.

Ehh, on Jetstorm and Wingblade I agree, but imo there's a really nice ratio of gray and green (and not too much yellow) on that Springer.
The more I looked at the face on Blades, the more I dislike all the white.

Actually, since it is a $20 Voyager, I'm definitely passing on this...
Man, Blaster, Dump Load, Powerglide, and now Blades...
Passing on all of these makes buying 2 of the figs. I want more and more realistic!!

More realistic? The Live Convoy / Evac mold is the best combo of realistic alt mode and awesome robot mode I have seen to date.

That said, I love the mold, and will probably be getting both repaints.
