So today I got a box o' fun! In that was Generations Windblade and Jhiaxus! (Maybe I'll review him sometime) So to kick off this long pause between my reviews, I bring Windblade to the table.
Windblade is the 'fan-built bot', voted on by us, the fans! I remember I chose the name Windblade and sword as her weapon, so I feel like I contributed some!
She has her own comic series that I still need to read, she sparks supporters and haters, and she sparks smutty drawings of her and Starscream! Seriously, stop those drawings.
Draw smutty drawing of her and Chromia instead YOU FOOLS-
Anyway, deluxe Windblade! Her jet mode... is dumb. I'll just say it. It doesn't clip together well, like AT ALL. The pegs connecting the jet's fuselage are SUPER tiny, making pegging them nearly impossible. Aside from that, it's a very dull jet. It's kinda TFP Starscream-y, but with fans. And it's so boring. It's (lel) jet black, the only color being the cockpit and legs handing out on the top. So jet mode gets a c-.
Robot mode is great. But I have issue with it, personally. It's the Dark Cybertron design, so it's different then the one I like. So no round boobs, a much older-looking head, different wings, and slightly different legs. And honestly, I wish they made this toy AFTER the comic came out, so we get the Sarah Stone design. But alas, she isn't. But let's just think of her as a representation of the Dark Cybertron design. It works pretty well, honestly. Design is spot-on, good job.
Weapon is good. It's finally a big sword! Not a stubby one like TFP Voyager Optimus or Dreadwing! It's made of thick plastic! Now little children can gouge their eyes out without roadblocks! And she has a sheath! Crazy! Oh, and removable fan! That's awesome.
Now, let's talk problems.
She IS kinda hard to stand, honestly. Her heels are SO huge. In the comic, they're like this:alwaysshoe.com/wp-content/uplo…
But the toy has HUGE heels. Like, TFA Blackarachnia heels. Makes her a bitch to stand.
Her wings piss me off. Unlike, every jet-former ever, her wings clip to her arms instead of her back. That REALLY restrict them, like getting those suckers out of the way, so you can do sword poses.
Jet mode is suck.
Overall, Windblade is great. Not the Windblade I wanted, but a good stand-in none the less. Definetly pick her up if you see her. I want a second to make Nautica. Plus I want Chromia and Arcee so they can have a threesome- er, I mean, so they can make out. Er, I mean, so they can scissor, er, I mean, so they can hang out! while fondling
So I give this toy an 8/10! Have a happy day and don't die of a stab wound inflicted by someone you trust...
Oh, and among my circle of friends (Seeker, Branden, Kaiju, Meta, Mandi, and... sniff.. Kyle) I have her first! SO SUCK IT.
