I love that shade of blue. It reminds me of the one used for Takara Adventure (Beast Hunters) Dreadwing.

It's such a shame that they didn't think to engineer this mold to have a "backward" robot transformation in mind. Sort of like Universe 2.0 Sideswipe and Sunstreaker. It's so close but it just doesn't work completely. The torso doesn't look quite right when you do it either as the pelvis sits too far back from the cockpit "chest". And while it can sort of turn into plane mode even with the arms switched, they stick out awkwardly on the bottom but it can still sit on the landing gear. The shoulder pads don't quite work right when the arms are moving "forwards" too. 

The mold overall doesn't seem to quite fill out the price point design or parts count wise. It just doesn't quite feel full leader class by today's standards. I feel as though there was enough in the budget to fully realize a reverse robot mode it if they wanted to. Especially since there's quite a bit of reuse with this mold between the standard "G1" transformation and what would be the "Prime" transformation. Skyquake, Dreadwing, Botcon Machine Wars Megaplex and even a Botcon style Machine Wars Megatron all from the "Prime" Transformation. Then G1 Skyquake, Machine Wars Starscream and Universe King Atlas from the "G1" style Transformation. That's seven total possible reuses that could've helped to spread the additional costs of a little extra tooling to. And since i'm a crazy person, I'd even go for a Beast Hunters retool from it too to make both Hasbro and Takara colors as well as Beast Wars Uprising Windrazor. Not that Windrazor would need that figure since we're getting a new BW Silverbolt in Legacy at some point and he's one of only two redecos for that mold and the only one that isn't just Silverbolt himself but in another color. And since they made Sandstorm, they'll make Windrazor. It would only be new wings, feet and weapons though. Maybe a new head not that it's needed as the stock head of Legacy Skyquake/Dreadwing already looks almost exactly like the BW Dreadwing head anyway.

All you block heads that keep voting this crap 4 and 5's are the reason Hasbro keeps giving us trash!!!!

While I do agree that there's more 4's and 5's in the votes here than probably should be, I don't agree that Hasbro gives us trash. But that's subjective. I do quite often find myself questioning the high votes some things get. And while I might seem like I just love everything sometimes, I really don't. I just don't hate everything (except for the upcoming RiD Tow-Line and Crasher from Kingdom Mirage and the Kingdom Mirage retool in general) and have a sort of understanding of the whole process and why things are the way they are for better or worse. 

But what problem do you really have with Dreadwing though? I mean, it's easy to just call things trash but what is it really that bothers you? I'm just kind of curious.

    • It's an insecti-swarm as we look at the Transformers G1 Insecticons and compare and contrast them with the Prime Wars legends class versions AND the latest Legacy and Legacy Evolution versions!  
    • Wow. Just wow. Energon Megatron looks perfect. Damn does he look good and I can't wait to get him and Galvatron. I really hope they make a bigger one at some point. I have this whole idea linking the mold to Thunderwing and several other crazy ideas so I'm a bit extra hyped for Energon Megs. Snarl looks good. I don't think it's a retool of Rattrap. I rewatched it and they didn't mention it having been a partial either. I mean it looks like it could be since they normally have a very similar transformation and parts layout but there's one major thing being the beast head feet. That's throwing me off. Even the little things like the thighs look different.  Bouldercrash and Magneous aren't really doing it for me though. They're "okay" and that's what I rated them as but it's a both a bit of a let down and better than I was expecting. I'm glad that they're not just rocks for alt modes but the vehicles seem just as out of place. I think just maybe random beast like shapes would've been better. More like the Fossilizers or what the cancelled Energon Monsters were possibly going to be. They even say that they're sparkless and not like Cybertronians in any way and that they're more creatures instead. And I still hate the fact that the Junkions have integrated transformations instead of the full partforming the others had since it limits what can be done with them. The torsos on the Junkions just can't combine with anything anymore and it sucks. I don't even bother with that feature of the Junkions but I made and still make giant crazy things with all my Weaponizers, Fossilizers and Modulators though. So I hope they at least learned from the "failure" of the Junkions and made these Rock Lords more combinable. And not just combinable in a single way like the Junkions and Junkasaurus. I mean it seems that that might be the case though as Bouldercrash is going to turn into a weapon. That tells me there's one fully intended way to combine them all and that maybe they won't work quite like the Weaponizers and so on. I'll get them but I don't think I'll be getting multiples of each. Bumblebee I already typed about previously. It looks good. Too much hate. It's not supposed to be 100% anything but a weird mix of two to three different aesthetics. Which it does. Chase being a new mold is surprising. And well, I think we know what's being turned into Lockdown now. Axlegrease was a red herring it seems. The capture claw on the arm reminded me so much of Ratchet's weapon that Lockdown stole.  Windblade looks really good. I have every Windblade toy and this one looks good. She seems like she's very solidly build but isn't full of gimmicks. I just wish they'd make her a bit bigger overall so that they can finally do something about getting rid of or better integrating her nose cone and cockpit area and making it so that she doesn't just have arms on the sides of the jet. I can think of a few ways to "fix" all of that. Thundertron is spectacular. He looks like a straight upgrade to his original toy. I'm so glad that he's not some random partial with Lio Convoy or even Silverbolt.  Optimus I've already typed about before. Still looks great. Too much hate again. Tigerhawk looks phenomenal. They managed to pull that off as a leader and that's incredible. I'm just not a fan of the brownish color. I get that they wanted to incorporate some Airazor elements but they look out of place. Oh and I don't see his "helmet" for beast mode. Go away Laser Prime. I wonder when they're doing Magnus. Or a proper SG Magnus. I'll even take a SG Prime based on the second toy of him. Hotshot and Jolt I've already typed about as well.  The poster art is confusing me though. There's Magmatron and Tidal Wave. We see Tidal Wave combined with Megatron. So that would mean that Tidal Wave is the commander class right? But that would make Magmatron the titan? What? That can't be right. So is Tidal Wave the titan and Magmatron the commander? Magmatron as the commander makes sense but so does a combinable Tidal Wave. I don't want a titan Tidal Wave. I don't want titans in general honestly. Not as big as they're making them. I'd rather have them be smaller but sturdier and with all their little minions as well as have no cost cutting measures. Huge bots are cool but they're never going to be in scale anyway so might as make them more "playable" instead. Cybertron Metroplex being the exception as he can be completely in scale as well as still be playable. It's just that he didn't come with his Minicon. I'm really hoping that Cybertron Menasor is made as a titan soon as he'd be perfect as he's shorter than Metroplex and doesn't have anything like Sparkdrinker so he could fulfill everything I'd want out of the titan class. Only time will tell.
