    yeah when I first saw windblade I thought with good remolding it would come out great, but they did nothing but a new head ? I may pick one copy of this up but its in hope they do the character properly in the future. Shame

    She's fine I guess, could've been worse. I would've preferred more seeker like parts but it's not the end of the world

    She's just

    Fine

    It feels like a poorly planned fan-mod.

    Why choose this body? Everything feels forced and no-budget. :sly:  Adding her to round out a wave? Sure. But making her a "reveal" like this just begs criticism and demands disappointment!

    I don't know why they didn\'t just use either the Reactivate Starscream mold or the Tetrajet Seeker mold. The Windblade repaint approach only worked in 2015, as an Exclusive.

    This is 2024, Hasbro. Slipstream deserves so much better.

    A little too Windblade.  They could\'ve retooled a little harder, especially to set up a run of female seeker repaints out of Cyberverse.  But definitely not bad, I\'ll give it a solid Good Enough.

    To be honest I haven’t messed with the Windblade mold probably since I first came out so it forgot there were peg holes in the forearms. But then you end up with gorilla arms just to do orient them right. Meh.

    Yeah, this is why I'm all for using the actual packaging art, for the Space Bridge teasers - just rip off the band-aid, from the get-go, haha.

    Love Legacy Windblade, but this isn't anywhere close to being a sufficient retool; the colours do look great, in the flesh, but...that's kind of the norm, these days. Trying to pass that shape on the mold's stomach off as the, "cockpit," will forever bug me.

    Yes yes. We've heard the precedent excuse before. Still a bad decision, just like the Legends toy.

    We've been over this. Slipstream is supposed to be a seeker.

    I still like this one better, and was hoping for an upgrade.

    I just can't get past those waffle wings. It's the reason I passed on Windblade, too.

    Hopefully they'll follow this up with a Nightbird from one of the two recent Arcee molds. Besides that there was BW Blackarachnia from Animated...so maybe they could reverse that with KD and a bit of retooling?

    Yikes, I\'m getting kinda tired of the fembots drawing the short stick. Honestly just looks like what if Shattered Glass Windblade, you know if she didn\'t already have a SG color. The chest isn\'t seekery enough, no arm mounted guns, and there\'s something off with that head, the colors look amazing tho. Oh well guess I\'ll just hope and pray for a wfc Slipstream.

    But that is precisely what she is. When Hasbro is doing things right, they reveal all the figures in a wave, even the cost-cutting ones. My hope is they led off with her precisely because she is the one least likely to generate excitement.

    I have no attachment to her character in previous media (having taken a collecting break between 2011-2019) so I like this. Let's be honest though - this will likely shelf-warm the way every other fembot has.

    Which I hate. At least Galaxy Force/Cybertron Thundercracker finally got his very own design.

    If they're going to do a VTOL jet, why not a remold of a Voyager Thrust in those colors with a new head?

    Where ever is the re-use of that Thrust mold, FFS?

    Siege mold has been redone to death. I'm curious what kind of condition the mold is in (though the last reuse was fine).

    I suspect there's probably some exclusivity deal with the Reactivate molds limiting their use.
