    SO excited for the new silverbolt Mark Maher on Instagram: "It’s finally Friday, time to flex your favorite fuzor. Welcome one of the most honorable bots in the maximal army, Legacy United Voyager Silverbolt. Please bless the stage with your ferocious fuzor presence! . So, upon kicking off this character with our amazing Takara Tomy partners, the legendary Hasui san informed me that Silverbolt was one of his favorite Beast Wars characters. Don’t quote me, but I believe he said the OG Silverbolt toy was the first Beast Wars toy he had gotten his magical hands on. It’s always such an honor to work with passionate people of the brand. I mean, after all, it is the 40th celebration, and this character is so unique, a fine addition to anyone’s collection. Hasui-san really made this toy come to life! . As you may know, Silverbolt is a fusion of a wolf and an eagle. All of our beast modes since our Kingdom series have leaned more towards realistic animal sculpts. It still fascinates me today how well the sculpted details translate from sculpt to plastic. So take an extra look at these fine feathers and marvel at the somewhat more werewolf face; the yellow-eyed staredown will give you the willies, I promise! . This character just exudes courageous strength, a ferocity of justice, and a massive will of trying to do the right thing! It’s honorable to be in such a presence, as it’s a rare trait for a character of such knight-like prowess to have a beast mode that strikes fear in Predacons’ black hearts. But as you know, Black Arachnia’s heart warmed up quite a bit with this big-shouldered stud! . I can’t help but sing, “How much is that doggy in the window, the one with the feathered tail?””"[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    It's a shame his wings weren't designed to have built-in spring-loaded launchers so that his feather swords can double as missiles like the original 1998 figure.

    Hopefully there will be an upgrade kit that can rectify that.

    He's pretty much perfect. I really hope these BW updates continue into next year and beyond.

    They did such a great job with this guy! Good to see Hasbro also finally got a fully painted sample to show off. Any doubters can now rest easy knowing that the robot mode face has all the correct paint apps.

    My only nitpicks would be that his tail feathers sit a bit too high up on his beast mode back and that his beast neck is non-existent. I can definitely overlook those though, considering how awesome he looks otherwise.

    Will have to paint those teeth stumps white though, to make ‘em stand out a bit more.

    This has got to be my most anticipated release of the year after Missing Link Optimus. Can't wait! He's the last BW I need!

    If/when they do a repaint of Tigerhawk as Universe Razorclaw, I hope they will do a repaint of Silverbolt. Either as Windrazor or the Universe SB.

    I’m glad they left it out. It heavily compromises the wings because they need to be so thick in order to house the mechanics. This time the wings are appropriately thin and articulated.

    I don’t expect any third parties to make wing replacements with a firing mechanism but who knows.

    Otherwise there’s always still the awesome original figure!
