Vehicle Mode: Silverbolt’s vehicle mode reminds me of Revenge of the Fallen Leader Jetfire. From the top, he looks awesome, but all he really is, is a shell that is the top of a jet, and robot parts folded up on the bottom. Silverbolt is nowhere near as bad as Jetfire though.
Robot Mode: In robot mode Silverbolt is absolutely amazing. Completely makes up for his vehicle mode failings. His large cannon comes apart into a gun and shield, though it doesn’t look much like a shield. Together, it is very much like his original gun. I am willing to accept imperfect vehicle modes that are decent (and he does look great from above) for better robot modes.
Thanks for reading!
