I still don't like Magnus.
But I do like Silverbolt.
I'm on the fence: I love Silverbolt's cartoon-accurate robot mode, but I'm not a fan of the jet mode at all. Hopefully, it looks better in person.
I love silverbolt, he is real old skool G1, its def one of my most anticipated, I'm not getting the hate for him ?
Part of me wants to buy this as I never owned a Silverbolt, however the other part of me thinks this looks way too simple and the robot mode basically has a jet on its back. Probably a pass.
Only Silverbolt I've ever had was the G2 version, so this one is a vast improvement to that. The "Robot Wearing A Jet Backpack" look is just G1 accurate as it was the basic Aerialbot design. I'll wait for the USAEDITION version, though - the gray and orange just don't appeal to me.
What he said. Doubt it if I'll get it though...
Guess Pascal didn't get the memo about a certian youtube reviewer requesting to do this first, or does that only count for a youtube review?
I was gunna pass on Silverbolt but Dayam!
anyway, I'm so glad to learn that he will indeed be perfect for my plans after all. woop!
So what, are there rules about who gets to post photos/videos of a stolen toy first now?
One of the posters there said it best. Silverbolt is a backformer. I'll be passing on him and powerglide. Onslaught is to awesome to pass up.
I don't hate him. I just don't love him enough to pay that much. The same mold smaller? Probably would pick him up.
This. Except, I don't mind the jet on his back. But in that size, I would prefer there be more work into hiding the robot mode on the bottom of the jet. And his head - it is an improvement over the Movie Starscream "ha, now you can't see me... right?" head transform ... but still wish they could have added some sort of panel there at the least.
Onslaught looks awesome... the only reason I'm probably passing on him is the fact that I really want all the Animated Leaders so far. :S
Silverbolt is also one of my favourite characters, but I think the problem is his toy is abit uninspiring. Its a robot folded up beneath a plane that itself doesn't actually transform that much. Its just an electronic backpack.
Yeah - the transformation is REALLY simple.
Him and Galvatron should have been swapped size-wise.
And loudstone, don't pass on Onslaught. I've gotten a chance to fiddle with him and he is AWESOME.
Doesn't silverbolt have the exact same transformation as Cybertron Legends Thundercracker/Starscream?
That will make a damn passable Darkwing.
