Blog #177: Toy Review: Transformers: Prime Cyberverse Commander Dreadwing

The long overdue second wave of Transformers: Prime Cyberverse Commanders finally is hitting store shelves.  It includes, Nightwatch Optimus Prime, Ironhide, Ultra Magnus, and Dreadwing.

Transformers: Prime Cyberverse Commander Dreadwing

Vehicle Mode: Dreadwing’s jet mode is awesome, nicely colored purple with gray and yellow.  I really like the jet, accept that he carries a sword under one wing.  This is a pet peeve of mine with jet transformers.  They should have the same weapons under both wings.  It’s a shame they didn’t give him two guns, it would have looked much better.

Robot Mode: Dreadwing looks great in robot mode.  I love the head sculpt.  I do like having the two different weapons in robot mode, but of course, I can’t have it both ways.

Overall: The only real complaint I have about him is that his hip joints pop apart way too easily during transformation.  I initially thought this was a design flaw, but Ultra Magnus has similar problems, so I’m beginning to think it’s a quality control problem.  I would be interested to know if others have the same problem or if I just got a dud.

Thanks for reading!
