    He's decent enough. The upper articulation is great, but not so much for the knees, and there's no ankle tilt, so that sucks.

    Also, he's MechTech weapon's crap imo, but the missile launchers make up for that.

    All in all, he looks great in both modes, but especially in alt mode.

    Hh ok. I was thinking bout buying him at some point. I think he'd go great with today's figures. Only thing that's stopping me is the fact that I have Tomahawk. I kinda feel like they're the same

    Damn my copy’s different it has hips that are unbelievably tight and knees that are really loose.

    Great job!! Isn't it neat how all it takes is a little blue on the head to help his entire look? And of course darkening those wheel wells on his feet.

    It’s a fun figure! Only downside IMO is that there’s no thigh swivel. Other than that, it’s great!

    It's really blowing it out of proportion to say "and now the breakages begin" because someone was doing something that's well outside the realm of normal use. Not saying it's not a piece that could break but it's not exactly time to panic either.
    Yeah I'd say the black on the feet and the blue on the cheeks are most important. Really elevates the figure!

    Definitely agree that there’s no point to panic over it. But I will say that Hasbro’s overuse of clear plastic hinges as of late has made figures significantly more prone to breaking after use.

    I have more pictures of him somewhere but I really like Skyhammer.

    As others mentioned, his articulation is a little flawed but he's such a unique take on the helicopter transformation. I have him paired with Mindwipe as the two are the same scale in vehicle mode so they were made to face off against each other.


    One of these days I'm going to get around to repainting the head to match this custom that was floating around in 2011.

    Ooohh I remember this custom. I wish I knew what paint that would match that.

    Ugh I had that shit too lol. Admittedly I enjoyed him a lot though but looking back it was a really ugly toy imo lol. Btw there are a few Skyhammer on eBay. Have you ever tried to get one?

    Loved his alt mode, didn't like the bot mode thanks mostly to the terrible knee articulation, struggled to get rid of him despite all the praise which probably had to do with all the KOs floating around.

    Yea, I just transformed mine, and remembered why I stored him away.

    I hate the leg articulation more than I remembered, and his lankiness just makes him look awkward. Think I'll just sell him..no point in keeping him.
