She's pretty cool. Hopefully Vault will review her soon.


I found Blitzwing today at Target. He'd been returned, his tankform shoved into the box and he was 70% off. I had to buy him. Nothing was wrong with him either.

Image

Can't play with him too much yet. Trying to finish up the TrapJaw review and still get to bed at a decent hour!

I can tell you that he was annoying to Transform. The instruction are from Jet to tank to Robot. Mine was stuck at Tank "and follow instruction in reverse" isn't as easy as it sounds. I'm either not happy with the jet mode or I'm doing it wrong. Not sure. LOL

Okay, I've had Blitzwing a little longer now and even though he came highly recommended, I'm not totally sure why! :blush:

His tank mode is pretty cool, but with any tank toy, treads that don't move make me sad. Still I like the compactness of it and I like the way the little red groove on the wings make a window.

His plane mode kinda sucks. It's really just the tank with the cannon folded over into the afterburner and the nosecone folding out from under. Admittedly, I may not have it completely transformed correctly - I'm not sure how to make the afterburner/tail stable. It just kinda hangs back there.

In robot mode, he's okay. I like the Man-E-Faces angle, that he's schizophrenic since he's a triple changer is hilarious. His robot look is pretty good, but he's accessoryless.

Still, he was like $5 and well worth that.

I keep running across animated Skywarp for $9... I just know I shouldn't do it.

And Masterpiece Skywarp is down to $25... It's like torture!

Yay! Swindle for $5!

Image


But I missed Oilslick and Lockdown at that price. Oil Slick is pretty high on my clearance want list too. There is still a Black Arachnia for $5 and I've walked on Waspinator a few times, but I'm not sure if I want those two.

Swindle I wanted because some vintage nostalgia and because of the newest Transformers comic. Him and Rodimus together are enjoyable though surely short-lived.

Skywarp is still there too. I think he just makes me want Sunstorm though.

A TFA Bruticus would've been awesome.

Hmm . . . though Bruticus might actually be my favorite gestalt.

As a kid I only finished Defensor, Bruticus, & Computron. I think Defensor was probably my favorite.

I got all his parts and Bruticus parts one christmas. We got up early and then my parents went back to bed, but that was the first christmas I just stayed up. I played with them all morning.

My brother got the Devastator giftset one year.
That thing was beautiful.

Never completed any of the others until adulthood.

Don't think I ever managed a complete Defensor.
A reissue would be damn tempting!!!

Man I really want to buy some TF reissues sometimes, but the price on those kills me. I try not to buy TFs at all, but obviously, clearance makes me weak.

I never had a single piece of Devastator (or Menasor) so I missed out on his coolness as a kid. I had all the limbs for Superion, but never... Silverstreak?

I think I liked Defensor best because he was an ambulance, police car, fire truck, and helicopter. I hated the giant motorcycle though.

Just thinking about reissues has me wishing I could by the Insecticons and Perceptro at my local TRU. :lol:

Alrighty, Vault has his Arcree review up today, but the one thing he can't do is show pics of Arcee in comparison to other TFAs (He only buys Samurai and Girl Transformers, so what are you gonna do?)

Here's a few pics I snapped of Arcee with my slightly larger TFA collection:

With Blurr, Car Mode:

With a few Autobots, robot mode:

All nine I have together:

Vault should be checking back in today with a few more of his own pics too!
