Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Deluxe Dreadwing

Vehicle Mode: I love his jet mode, I’m just not crazy about his weapons.  I don’t mind so much the staff under the jet, but the only place to put the launcher is on top of the jet, and he only has missiles for under each wing.  It’s a minor thing I guess, but it bugs me.  I also love the engineering of his wings.  They are made from four separate pieces that clip together.  When I first saw it, I was worried they wouldn’t stay together, but they do, and he looks great.  I’m not crazy about the yellow, but he is otherwise colored very nicely.

Robot Mode: He’s very bulky in robot mode, but that’s consistent with the original voyager toy.  The pieces of the wings don’t lock in place so it’s very hard to get them symmetrical.  I really like his head sculpt.  Not so crazy about the staff.  Seems over designed.  I would have preferred just two missile launchers.  Then they could be mounted  under his wings in vehicle mode.

Thanks for reading!

I’m 36 years old, and I work in network tech support for a public school system. I am a huge fan of Star Trek, Transformers, Harry Potter, and Marvel Comics as well as numerous other fandoms. I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.
