Next up, we're on to the Voyagers in our series of galleries looking at the new Combiner Wars Transformers toys, and so, here's Silverbolt
! The leader of the Aerialbots with the crippling fear of heights is the first of the Generation 1 combiner team leaders to be updated for the Combiner Wars line, and he's rather cool.
Silverbolt himself is a great and faithful update of the original, right down to the passenger jet alternate mode that looks close to his original concorde alternate mode. The robot mode likewise nails the look of the original, with all the style of an updated design much as we have been seeing throughout the Combiner Wars line. Silverbolt comes with a pair of accessories - a long rifle and a shield, both of which can mount on the arms, though the rifle also fits into Silverbolt's hands. The two accessories combine into a huge weapon which can mount beneath the nose of the jet mode. It even features a fake wheel molded in to compensate for the fact it covers the landing gear when attached.
The main draw of the Combiner Wars toys, though, is combining them into a single gigantic robot, and Silverbolt serves as the torso of the combination. Any four limbs can attach to form a gigantic and poseable combined mode - and make no mistake, the big guy, Superion, can hold poses well. Even simply combining the toys is a joy to do.
Silverbolt is a great example of what the Combiner Wars line is all about. He's solid on his own, but comes into his own if you also have the Deluxe class toys to make the limbs for his combined mode. Well worth checking out - and on that note, check out our gallery at the link below:
