    I'm gonna pass,even though Optibotimus said it was pretty good. Really a shame,since poor Rotf Breakaway is lonely as my only Autobot flyer :( (And yes,I have the brown one,not that shitty tan). It's also really sad that I'm looking forward to the repaints(Darksteel and Armor Topspin) of the wave and not the only new mold

    I like his jet mode, but it's much too small and the robot mode looks like a spindly mess. I don't buy offscreen characters anyway. I say pass.

    I'm a sucker for the oddball figures so I will pick up one copy of him.

    The jetmode looks great, notwithstanding the whackadoo paint scheme.

    bot mode looks like an anorexic gladiator, so it will fill the anorexic gladiator niche in my collection, LOL.

    I can't seem to attach the name Air Raid to him though, so I'll call him Spindlicus Anorexicus

    I donĀ“t like the color. Looks weird for a military jet. Shame tho. An AWACS plane is something new and odd.

    I'm going to get him because I love the gladiator-style robot he was made to be. I also love his plane mode. Somehow, the problems that others have with him don't seem to bother me

    Not the best looking TF out there but I've seen (and own) worse. I'm also getting it to celebrate the fact it's not another Bumblebee.

    I dunno. His plane is excellent, but his bot is.... odd.

    I am not sure. I will probaly have to hunt him down and have him in hand before I am totally sure. By the way is he designed to be a movie bot or a hybrid like Bludgeon or Seaspray?

    To the people who say he's too skinny :

    He's a pretty large airplane, meaning, he's going to be tall in robotmode.

    Perhaps 40ft....his lankiness emphasizes that. Kind of like the Iron Giant, I think this Air Raid has similar charisma. That's why I think you should consider getting him, provided, if you dig such a character.

    I fell in love with this guy at first sight, just because of the alt mode.

    I can live with a slightly off robot mode for a sexy airplane mode.


    However, I will say, his transformation in some places really reminds me of RotF Blaze Master, that weird helicopter transformer.
