Blog #1459: Toy Review: Transformers: Generations: Power of the Primes Dreadwing

Transformers: Generations: Power of the Primes Deluxe Dreadwing

Click here to read about how Hasbro ruined the Power of the Primes line before it even started.

Dreadwing is something of an oddity. Dreadwind and Darkwing (now called Blackwing), presumably for trademark issues with Darkwing Duck) combine not into a larger robot, but into a larger vehicle. Dreadwing is not bad, but he has a few serious flaws. The main flaw is with how the two jets hook together. There is a single peg, which makes for a flimsy connection, and Darkwing’s wings don’t attach to the back of Dreadwind’s wings, which would have stabilized the single peg connection. Also, Darkwing’s head is sitting right on top of the jet, which looks kind of stupid.

Overall: I give Hasbro credit. They could have just done these two as minor remolds without the ability to combine. It’s just unfortunate they didn’t put a little more thought into it.

Thanks for reading!

I’m 36 years old, and I work in network tech support for a public school system. I am a huge fan of Star Trek, Transformers, Harry Potter, and Marvel Comics as well as numerous other fandoms. I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.
