Transformers: Age of Extinction Voyager Drift
Vehicle Mode: I had just started blogging when Dark of the Moon toys were coming out, so I didn’t do any detailed reviews, but Skyhammer is in my opinion the best helicopter alternate mode Transformer toy ever. It is an awesome toy, and even though I’m not completely happy with it being used here, it is a great mold. He has been repainted in Drift colors and has a new set of swords that can be attached to the existing ports on his wings. The helicopter mode is fantastic.
Robot Mode: I really like the coloring on his robot mode. His head seems a little small, likely because his head ornamentation is a problem when fitting it in the space for Skyhammer’s head. The best feature of the toy is how his main rotor folds around his upper body, preventing the rotors flopping around on his back or being used as a crappy weapon as on most helicopter Transformers.
Overall: The real problem with this toy is that it should never have been made. Drift is a Triplechanger, but was not given a Triplechanger toy. This sucks epically. They would have been better off taking Generations Springer, remolding the car to make it look at least sort of like the car mode and then he also has the helicopter mode. Of course, actually doing a proper Triplechanger would have made actual sense, but this is Hasbro we’re talking about.
