Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Deluxe Class Nightbird


Vehicle Mode: I love everything about the design of Nightbird’s vehicle mode, except the sword as her spoiler. It does not look like a spoiler, it looks like a sword. If the hilt were removable so it really looked like a spoiler, it would be fine. I’m not a huge fan of the brown plastic. She should be mostly black or dark gray. Switching the brown for purple might have worked too.

Robot Mode: In robot mode she has an amazing head sculpt, but again, the colors aren’t great. Too much brown.

Overall: Hopefully we will get a Nightbird properly painted down the road. If so, this is an easy skip, if not, it might be worth picking up. Of course, we may always get a better one in the Studio Series line. This toy will also be released in a single pack, which should have come out first with this three pack coming out second, but the rescheduling of the movie screwed up the schedule.

Thanks for reading!

    If you look very attentively at her robot mode, you will see, that it’s strong remolded Studio Series Shatter (car version)
