    I like him, sure. I wish the wings on the toy folded down like on the show, though.

    I named my horse after him. My horse is Silverbolt as well.

    Silverbolt is by far my favorite BW character, and one of only a handful of BW toys that I own.

    Can't stand the putz. I consider him to be quite possibly the single most annoying character on the show.

    I always liked Silverbolt in BW, and his revelation about liking being Jetfire was the best part of BM.

    I just remember that one episode where Silverbolt and Black Arachnia were around some big pile of rubble/rock wall and Silverbolt decided to blast it to shit. The funniest part was the fact that he just stood there, unflinching, with that shit eating grin on his face as the blasted rubble bounced off of him.

    I love Silverbolt, both BW and his G1 namesake. Scott McNeil rocks! BW Silverbolt was one of the first toys I bought when I got back into collecting TFs. It's quite a good toy. I love the idea of a winged wolf.

    He's like the Transformers version of Constable Benton Fraser. Only he turns into Diefenbaker. How can you not like someone like that? He's hilarious!

    :lol  I think Scott McNeil said it best:

    brave, couragous "and smart as a sack of hammers."

    I've never thought of it like that. I instantly like Silverbolt more. :D

    I don't really like Silverbolt at all. He was so irritatingly one-dimensional. Seriously, he has no real personality, he's just an idealized archetype of a chivalrous male, in personality, at least.

    And keep in mind, in the show, he is surrounded by much more INTERESTING and humorous characters with actual depth, like Megatron, Tarantulas, Rattrap, Dinobot, Waspinator(... I could keep going here), and that fact alone makes him even more lame

    No, he was a PARODY of cookie-cutter cartoon heroes. His character was more subtle than the rest of the cast combined.

    But that's not really the point of a cartoon character, is it? At least not for children. The point is to make the character interesting and endearing , even if a villain, so the audience will want to go out and get the toys of the characters they like.

    I forget. To be honest, I was not a fan when it originally played. But one of the cable channels started playing reruns a year or two back, and I fell in love with the show. My dad was a rabid fan of the first couple seasons, and so over the last few days I've been watching two boxed sets. Which is why it's fresh in my mind. :D

    Another fan of Silverbolt here.
    I like how they used his character to counterpoint Dinobot (both classical "heroic" characters, but so totally different in outlook).

    I also like how they used him to explore the concepts of good and evil via his relationship with Blackarachnia (2 of BW, 2 of BM).

    Considering I enjoy fun humorous characters (especially when they are more than simply comedy relief), Silverbolt is truly excellent, not to mention cute like a puppy, and an excellent toy to boot.
