Is he worth getting. I just want to know because I am thinking of picking one up.
I got mine not too long ago, because of hasbro's being announced w/o chrome, and I likes the shiny bits. cost about $55 from singapore on ebay, but all other online stores were sold out. guess you just have to ask yourself how much you like chrome. as far as a figure himself goes, I think he's pretty neat, though getting the back part of him to stay correctly in jet mode is rediculous and doesn't make much sense. he's really posable in robot mode, so I like him a bunch.
Is he easy to attach to Convoy?? I found teh GF Version on Digital-Toys.com for $34.90 shipped.
Yeah... Really easy...
Another thing you might want to consider:
The GF version has an error on his nose piece on his face on mine... There is a bar there and they didn't tack it down correctly... I've heard and seen others with the same problem as well...
Other than that, he's solid...
Yeah, the nose bar is a common fault. It's not that noticeable though, I never even knew until I saw pictures of the correct one.
He's a great TF though, I think you'll like him. Awesome jet mode, very cool robot mode and the Sonic Convoy combo is pure awesomeness.
digital toys has him for $25.95 and BBTS has a backorder for him coming in this month for the same price:
For that price, why buy Hasbro?
I resold mine, not worth the combination with Convoy IMO
I actually like bomber, I'm not to fond of Galaxy Convoy.
not bad, i just got him to make galaxy convoy look even better then he does...and give him kool lil swords . Not a huge fan of the bot mode but its ok, plane mode is excellent though
Thanks for the heads up. I'm thinking about the Galaxy Force version now. Does the chrome chest and swords easy to flake/mess up?
Because I don't like chrome over large areas. When it flakes, it looks like crap and when it doesn't it looks like those KOs you find at BigLots. I can take chrome accents like on Soundwave and Noisemaze, but that big chrome chest is asking for trouble.
Thanks for the tip! I just put in my order for one plus a Brawn and Windcharger Key chain set! *giggles* [/school girl]
Unless you play with your Sonic Bomber like a full-on retard, there's no way it's going to chip.
I've got a complete set of Transmetals. No playing with like a full-on retard. Sitting on a shelf for a bit under a decade. Chrome flakes and peels off them like a bad sunburn. Same with a Beast Machines ultra Jetstorm. It doesn't take play like a full--on retard to chip chrome. And I still think that much chrome is excessive and KOish. Accenting like on Soundwave and Noizemaze looks good though. And I'll grant that the chest would have looked better painted gold than yellow (which I'll likely do to my Hasbro Wing Saber), but I'll take durability over excessive shiny.
Well the chrome on Sonic Bomber is very durable. Even after sticking the swords into the handles and pulling them out many times there has been no chipping around the peg on the sword.
