Transformers: Robots in Disguise (2015) Legion Wave 5 (Clampdown, Drift, Thunderhoof, Windblade)

Clampdown

Clampdown looks great in vehicle mode.  He’s got really nice paint apps.  I wasn’t sure how a toy based on such a bizarre character was going to turn out, but this one is pretty good.

I really like Drift’s paint job.  It looks much better than the Warrior Class toy.  In robot mode he’s got a very nice head sculpt.

Thunderhoof

Thunderhoof is the best toy in the wave.  He looks really great in both modes, and I love the silver paint apps.  He has a nice head sculpt.  It’s a little hard to see in the photo as it’s black against black, but he has a separate set of horns on his robot head that looks much better than the larger comb in vehicle mode.

Windblade

Considering how bad the Generations Deluxe Windblade toy is, it is sad to think this might be the best Windblade we ever get.  I don’t think they have announced a Warrior Class Windblade, but I hope we get one.  I love the shape of the jet.  It reminds me of something, but I can’t put my finger on it.

Overall: This is a great wave, with four new molds, something we don’t get very often.  Highly recommended.

Thanks for reading!
