Each Deluxe Combiner Limb comes with an accessory that can turn into a foot or hand for the combiner. In the picture, the thumb is in the center position, but can be turned either direction to form a left or right fist. A very cool bit of engineering, but unfortunately, this part is really not good for anything else as most Deluxe toys have no way to use them as a weapon that does not look stupid.
Vehicle Mode: I really like Dragstrip’s vehicle mode with the exception of the peg sticking out of the top behind the seat. Now, unless this peg (or the port on the bottom of the nose of the car) are important in combining, all it is for is to connect the car nose to his back. It could have easily been done with a smaller peg, or even a port on top and a peg on the bottom of the nose. Still, this is a fairly minor thing, and he looks really great otherwise. Annoyingly, there is nowhere to store or attach his sword in vehicle mode. You could take the angled peg and put it in the whole on the side of the car, but the it would point away from the vehicle at an angle and look stupid. Also, with one additional port, the foot could have pegged on top of the vehicle and simulated the G1 double cannons that all the Stunticon limbs had.
Update 1/13/15: Okay, so I’m more than willing to admit when I’m wrong. I opened the Aerialbots first, and the fists clearly had no ports on the bottom. While the molds are all different, they are all designed the same. So, by the time I opened Dragstrip, I must have barely looked at the foot and just assumed it had no port. However, it actually does.
So, you can in fact put the gun on the roof like the G1 toys had. Complete props to Hasbro on that. I can’t believe I missed it initially. I’m not 100% happy with it. The thumb folds underneath, but if the gun sat further back you could fold that down the back of the vehicle and it would look even more like the G1. Minor thing, but it would have been nice. Still, that peg does take away from the car mode without the gun. End Update
Robot Mode: Dragstrip looks great in robot mode. I know that some will complain about the screw heads that are so visible on his torso, but they have to be somewhere, and they are better here than the top of the vehicle. They could have painted the part in the center of his chest yellow (or cast it in yellow plastic). Really not a big deal to me though.
