Read my reviews of Alpha Bravo, Firefly (Fireflight), Powerglide, Silverbolt, Skydive, and Superion.

Vehicle Mode: Air Raid’s vehicle mode is awesome.  They did a great job with the striping on his wings and vertical stabilizers.  He’s perfect.  The G1 was always my favorite Aerialbot toy, and they really did him justice.

Robot Mode: His robot mode coloring is perfect.  I love the head sculpt.  I’m not crazy about his wings turned up behind him (you could leave them down, but that’s not the way he is in the instructions).  Problem is that his jet nose sticks up so far, it does look better with the wings up than down.

Overall: Easily my favorite of the Aerialbot limbs.  A definite must.

Thanks for reading!

    Michaelwpollard, well it’s sort of cool, but now we don’t get trading cards anymore, and they will be releasing Wave 1 with comics in May. They should have just waited for the comics to begin with.

    I think the wing change is more about his robot mode, so they can be pivoted up, but yes, it is different, They could repaint him into a Skystriker.

  2. Cool, they’re including the comics with them now. Also interesting they changed Air Raid’s vehicle mode, making him with (if I’m seeing it right) variable wing geometry like Jetfire.
