Dreadwind is a significant remold of the Skydive mold. In robot mode his chest, combiner connector, and shoulders have been remolded. His legs have also had remolding so that his wings fold down to his legs instead of folding back on his back. He also has a new head sculpt. In jet mode you can see there is a new piece that sits between the fuselage and the wings. This is what allows the wings to fold down to his legs, and I assume will be used when combining into Dreadwing. This additional part between the wings and fuselage also makes him wider wingtip to wingtip than Skydive. His paint job is perfect. As with other POTP deluxes he can wear his fist accessory on his chest and can carry a Prime Master.

Read my review of Dreadwing, the combined form of Dreadwind and Blackwing here.

Overall: Dreadwind looks amazing and is an absolute must. It remains to be seen if he is part of any specific combiner. We are getting a Voyager Starscream and Blackwing, but whether or not there are two additional limbs for that set is anybody’s guess. Personally, I am hoping we finally get the Combiner Wars Starscream head in the USA as Skywarp and Thundercracker to complete an all jet Decepticon combiner. That makes the most sense.

Thanks for reading!
