    I think he'd look great next to GDO Hot Spot. If you don't already have the mold, he's fantastic.

    IMO not enough white on him and he needs a blue face.

    I might be a bit partial to it. I own 4 versions of the mold and think it's fantastic.

    I think he's good representation of Blades. The figure also has a nice amount of articulation and gimmicks

    It's a good mold and the alt mode couldn't have been more perfect with the Dauphin. Even has a near-exact Coast Guard Rescue deco, as well.

    I've been wanting him for a long time and finally got him a few weeks ago. He's here beside me as I type. Already had Springer and Evac so I knew it was a good mold.

    Great toy that could only be improved if they gave him the more G1 accurate Legends colour scheme.

    Great mold, decent as Blades in vehicle mode, not so much in robot mode. I have it but it's not Blades in my collection.

    yeah like all others have stated I have both blades and inferno/grapple and they do look great together. and the helicopter mode looks just a tad out of scale, but not much.

    I love all my choppuhs. :)

    he's great. i like the simple transformation process a lot (more than movie Blackout) and he looks good in either mode.
    i shoulda bought 2 when they were at retail, lol.

    Too bad the voyager Blades repaint didn't match the legends Blades repaint.

    I'll be honest, I have blades and absolutely love the helicopter they decided to use for his alt mode and I don't mind the paint scheme they decided to go with:

    But, I for one was hoping for the paint deco to match a more traditional Cost Guard Color scheme. like so:

    And it also would have made alot more Gee-Whiners happy too. :lol
