Review: DOTM Air Raid Figure


Recommended Posts

It's not too often that a Deluxe class flight mode Autobot comes around in the Bayverse. Of course, when they do come out all the G1 fans expect some sort of Aerialbots tribute. Until now, that really hasn't happened. Although a tribute in name only, Air Raid now makes the scene via DOTM gussied up as a recon jet. To see how he fares in the review, click here.

I really wish they would've included some sort of articulation for the left hand. Even a loose claw would be better a kibble hand.

That said, I like him overall. I'll grab him when I see him.

this figure is kind of neat. i enjoyed the review.

 

but, at this point, i'd rather not spend any more money on non movie characters, especially with prime figures just around the corner.

 

if this thing goes on a hard core clearance.. i may think about getting it. but probably not.

I will pick this guy up. Not sure if I like the green, but the overall mold is what really makes me get it since that's what an airbrush if for. :)

I bought him so that ROTF Stratosphere could have an in-scale (-ish) buddy. Not a huge fan otherwise, he's got problems- the legs are odd, that "hand" is just lazy, the giant fist hanging off the tail, the alt mode balance issue, and the intact half-airplane on his back.

 

One cool thing is that in alt mode, you can open the side of the forward fuselage to expose a pair of Mechtech ports, which will hold narrow weapons, such as the ones that come with Topspin.

 

I modded his bizzare right hand so the horizontal fins can fold up against the vertical stabilizer or downward, to resemble a couple different types of axe-like weapons. Also took the spring out of the weapon (as I do w/ most of my MT weapons) so it stay open.

He looks okay and I'll most likely get him but what I don't like is that they used the name Air-Raid for a recon plane. The name Air-Raid better fits attacking aircraft like a fighter jet or a stealth bomber. The A-10 Thunderbolt would have been a nice choice.

 

A redeco/head retool of Movie Mindwipe would have been better suited for this character. smh.
