Transformers: Generations: Siege Deluxe Skytread

Skytread

Vehicle Mode: This might be the best toy ever that is a complete and total failure on Hasbro’s part. These vehicle modes look perfect. Absolutely perfect. There is only one problem. They have no individual robot modes. I know what you’re thinking. Why does that matter. The G1 toy didn’t have individual robot modes. Unfortunately, Power of the Primes Battletrap did have individual robot modes. So, you have two toys who are supposed to be the same “class”, and are done in two different size classes and with different characteristics. Admittedly this is a better toy, but we don’t have a Battletrap that looks right with him. Also, you’ll notice the tank isn’t quite right in vehicle mode. My Skytread’s right hip won’t turn. I’ve heard other people talking about that online. I’m still looking for another one. Hasbro’s quality control has gone into the toilet of late.

Robot Mode: Skytread looks amazing in robot mode. He just doesn’t look right next to Battletrap.

Overall: Skytread’s biggest flaw is being better than Battletrap. How Hasbro could screw this up I don’t know.

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.
