    Decepticon Nitro has landed! Nitro is an intriguing release as he is the first "new" character The TLK toyline has done a mold for in the Voyager size class. Nitro's design almost entirely comes from the KSI boss designed by Josh Nizzi and presented in The Age of Extinction film, while the head is new. Like his wavemate Scorn, his weapons, a crossbow and chaingun, are incorporated into his bot mode. For accessories he includes two missile add ons. His most famous feature is his removable head and compatibility with titan masters. Finally, this figure has a total of 35 steps to his transformation. Thats more steps than either aoe leader figure, and more than double the steps of two aoe voyager figures! I enjoy a challenge and this figure definitely gave me that. I am stoked to see Hasbro give us something complex, with fun play figures, and still keeping it a voyager class.


    His alt mode is a generic fighter jet, with a fully functioning cockpit for titan masters to ride in. I like the muted colors, as it allows the jet to hide well in other displays, whereas a flashier color scheme would have felt less appropriate. Refreshingly this figure does not suffer from robot underneath carriage syndrome, as the jet mode hides the bot parts pretty well. There is fold out landing gear in the front of the jet, and molded in wheels for the back.


    His robot mode features 18 points of articulation, a ball jointed head, double shoulder swivel, arm swivels, elbow joints, adjustable mini gun, double thigh swivels, leg swivels, knee joints, feet swivel. Theres plenty of molded detail included two miniguns at his shoulders. Decepticon Nitro cuts an imposing figure.

    Hasbro could have easily mailed it in for wave 3 and offered repaints, i am floored that this figure was even made. Super complex, and very fun. Highly recommended.




    TLDR

    Titan master compatibility with head
    Fully functioning cockpit in jet mode
    Weapons incorporated into bot mode
    Complex transformation, at 35 steps, five more than TLK Leader Class Megatron who has 30 (Think ROTF but not frustrating)

    Titan Master compatibility is bizarre, but not unwelcome.
    Gotta say, I'm really excited for this guy. Looks like a good figure!

    Also, lol at the box art. Wrong head.

    Looks very cool though I'm not sure how I feel about the parts-former weapon.

    @ex dtw2003 partsforming weapon? Not sure what youre talking about, i definitely dont say that in the review at all. Both crossbow and chaingun are connected directly to the robot mode as you can see in pics. The little triple missile accessories that he comes with can attach, but thats more of a added design than a weapon.

    i can't believe my biggest issue with this guy is that he's too unique to be turned into a G1 character. maybe darkwing with the wings unfolded?

    Here's hoping he becomes relatively easy to find. Doesn't seem likely, though...

    I want him just because his transformation is pretty interesting. He's a rare jet that actually does something with the wings.

    It looked like the nosecone detached entirely to become the crossbow. If I'm wrong about that I'm wrong. Looks like a cool figure that I otherwise like and will almost certainly grab him.

    Though I admit I have a hard time paying $30 for a movie voyager.

    It would be pretty cool to see Nitro with Cogman for a head.

    This guy looks amazing. I can't wait for my preorder to ship out. The head sculpt and promotional images make me think they mashed together the head designs of the KSI Boss(4 eyes+ lower face) and Shockwave(1 eye.) I think the head sculpt is fine, but I like the Shockwave head better.

    Definitely one of the figures I'm looking forward to the most out of this line. He and voyager Megs are my two biggest wants

    This has to be, hands down, one of the best looking figures from any of the movie lines, and I absolutely have loved the movie lines. Cannot wait to see this guy pop up in stores around me, he's bought on site for sure.

    This guy is too awesome, broke down and got him for $55 shipped on Ebay. Glad he look like a Jaeger and not a damn Gundam.

    It's been a long time since we got a voyager jet in the movie line--was the RotF Starscream mold the last one?

    There was Mindwipe and Strafe from NEST Global Alliance and 2010 respectively, which was more of a stealth jet (7 years ago!). As both a fighter jet and/or in-movie jet character, then ROTF Voyager Starscream would be it.

    Solid review!

    Love the comparison to ROTF complexity, I hope Nitro is easy to find at retail :)
