Transformers Universe - Countdown
The matched luggage to Darkwind of the day before last, Countdown was the other Transformers Universe
Ultra Class repaint to find an exclusive home on the Toys R Us shelves in April 2009.
Originally finding his way into the Preserve collection in 1989 in the form of a Micromaster Autobot Rocket Base (coming soon), this incarnation sees him as 'a cross between a Russian R-400 Oka mobile ballistic missile launcher and a BTR-90 armoured personnel carrier
' according to the guys over at tfwiki.net
. I find that I really do like the Ultra scale, and it also has the sort of chunky, substantial feel of that rocket base from 20 years previous. Click the image for more shots and the bio of this amazing freedom fighting, world liberating bot!
