    At first glance it looked like a remold of Armada Thrust. I'll, probably end up getting it but it's pretty weak.

    I....um....well I have nothing nice to say about the robot mode...the jet mode is fairly nice, but it's an easy "list in the not buying" pile for me...

    The jet mode is okay, but the bot mode is awful. The torso looks like it was designed upside-down, and the entire lower section looks like crap. I'm disappointed.

    Definite pass on this one.

    As far as putting thought into design, I think someone gave up trying and someone above them gave up caring.

    Remember its unlikely this toy is transformed properly or in a flattering pose. whoever takes the pics for the website is terrible for transforming the toys.

    Not feeling this figure ONE BIT :thumbdown 

    The jet mode and color are VERY nice, but that robot mode is really below the standard I expect from Hasbro these days. It looks like a horrid amalgamation of Starscream and Shockwave

    I'm really feeling that Hasbro dropped the ball on some of the deluxe class movie toys. Mind you Jazz, Bumblebee and Barricade are pure love. I know Hasbro's just padding the line out a little. And I know Dreadwing's not an actual movie character, but they really need to try harder

    Jet mode is ok, robot mode sucks.
    Especially the head.

    I pray that's down to Hasbro's stock photo's

    Is it just me or did they use a test shot? I believe I can see that somebody has branded the port (left) wing with a soldiering iron, like they do on some of the leaked test shots we've seen.

    that has to be one of the most lame looking robot ever. G1 purist aside, they should look at the new classics line to figue out a more interesting transformation that doesnt look like an dupside down plane with arms and legs.
    SAD!
