Default Toy Review - Titans Return Windblade updated

Toy Review - Titans Return Windblade
This toy is so cool, very happy with the head. Figure itself maybe abit bigger!
Anyway is a good one to collect with~

I did black of the back section make the body more standout!

The combined sword can plug into a slot just behind the cockpit in Windblade's vehicle mode

I got this figure last night, so these are only initial thoughts:

Overall she looks quite good in both modes, but jet mode would definitely be the winner. The robot face is very evocative of the youthful vibrant representation we've had of her in the comics, and the greater emphasis on the blue collar helps provide some definition to the figure. Unfortunately in my mind, the thicker legs tends to overwhelm the slight upper body.

The transformation is a bit disappointingly simplistic - pull arms down, pull down legs & flip, flip nose cone

I quite like the idea of the two swords becoming a rail gun, and wish that they had a peg for combined weapon, rather than a tab, so that others could hold it.

The upper body and head is a better I think overall I prefer the slender Generations version, or even better - the Legends version.

I've got all the DLX Windblade molds, but I still got this one...

Vehicle mode is the best of the 3 by far. Big, feels/looks solid, has awesome lines (love backwards swept wings) and great use of colour.

Robot mode is nice, though the proportions are a bit strange-this is worsened by the huge + bulky swords + square head + limited arm articulation (no wrist swivels and wings get in the way of shoulders). That said, not too bad either, though I prefer the proportions of the RID version more.
Face is okay, but looks a bit 'dead' (neither smiling like RID or scowling like Gen), though paint is very nice.

Overall worth it for the vehicle but not my Favourite Windblade in robot mode.

The robot-mode looks better than I expected. Her torso isn't as chunky as pictures make it out to be. Just don't look at her from behind, because her backpack kibble is massive! Also, I kind of wish the Autobot symbol was bigger and placed somewhere else, it's almost indistinguishable.

Seeing Scourge's thighs on Windblade really Sweeps me off my feet.

a missed opportunity with this mold and the generations mold, a head swap makes them both look way better...
