    Next up in our series of Transformers Prime new toy gallery updates we've got the latest addition to the Prime Voyager size class - Dreadwing! Dreadwing is the new Decepticon who joins the cast early in season 2 to avenge his brother Skyquake, and in toy form he proves to be an excellent and show-accurate representation of the character, albeit with a couple of small elements which might give some of you reservations about picking on up for your Prime Decepticon squad.

    Those reservations are, mainly, that the entire head is made of soft rubber. Not just the crests, as has been the case in the past, but the whole thing. The MechTech gun is another sore point, lacking a post long enough to be carried slung under the arm as on the show, because the hands are molded part open. It's a small point given you need a rubber band to make the gun stay unfolded, but it's still a detractor.

    On to the good though, you have an excellent vehicle mode and a surprisingly in-depth transformation, providing for an accurate look in robot and jet modes. Robot mode is very sleek and free of extraneous vehicle mode parts, jet mode regrettably does have a bit of an undercarriage and the hands sticking out the back.

    Overall, a toy worth picking up, even with the minor flaws he is one of the best representations of a character in the Transformers Prime line.

    sorry if this is dumb- but does he come with the smaller handgun used in a few of those shots as well?

    Still, in general on Dreadwing I fear it is a case of "cannon CAN'T be held in an underslung manner? Cyberverse it is then" for me.

    I've kinda lost interest in the Prime Mainline, but this guy looks too good to pass up!

    It is. I wanted to show off how he looks with a more reasonably sized gun as opposed to the overhuge light up thing he has as standard.

    A couple of the jet mode pictures also have Starscream's missiles attached under the wings :)

    I wish he had a gatling gun that could have very well been "illin'."

    Nrrgh... great deco... but I still can't get past the disappointment of the weapons, compared to the Arms Microns.

    I am so getting this guy. Heck, I'll get all the Prime toys if I could. I just hope my provider don't run out of stocks. :lol 

    Also, I'm amazed at how good people are with regards to minor tor details. I'm learning a lot from you guys, since I began collecting TF toys. Thanks! :thumb

    I actually have not purchased anything from the prime line at all, but he has such a beautiful robot mode in my opinion. My god, I haven't really been interested in the others but dreadwing is just beautiful to me. The way everything in the robot mode is neat, and no excess kibble. I should start collecting the prime line

    Yes you should. You may not like some of the Deluxe Toys, but the voyagers are a good enough for your shelf display, especially the FEs.

    And by the way, I'm an Invader Zim fan myself. :D

    Robot mode looks fantastic. Jet mode, however...
