    great looking figure. Really like everything about it.

    wonder if the previous mold sword n scabbard could be used on this one.

    Used ? Probably , but storage in a sense I don't think so , besides her hands and that peg hole on top of the cockpit windows. I don't think there's anymore standard 5mm ports , and as it folds backwards - the cockpit that is , you can't store the scabbard as there's not enough of a space .

    Man, I REALLY like how her head looks on Lio Convoy! It looks like she's wearing Warhammer armor.

    There's a way to peg it in , unfortunately being at the TOP of the cockpit in jet mode or sides where the hand lie . Nothing that I can see in bot mode . So decently? I would have to say nope .

    I can't decide..

    Which is better overall. Or Pros and Cons?

    Thrilling 30 Windblade VS. Titans Return Windblade?

    Pretty sure the larger upper arms are supposed to mimic the baggy folds of a kimono to compliment her weird samurai geisha design.

    Wow, Wingblades head on Leo Prime looks almost deliberate.

    based solely on aesthetics as I've seen thrilling 30th windblade and dismissed it knowing of titans return's soon to be release with the digital render out. I would say titan return . But this is coming from someone who never owned a windblade. But after watching some reviews of her I'll say this the pros of 30th are
    1- blade and scabbard are comic accurate (her tr's character card had the nerve to tease her blade and not give it )
    2- wrist articulation
    3- waist articulation
    4- wings articulation
    5- turbines spins
    Tr has
    1- better stability
    2- what seems to be blown their budget with that head sculpt
    3- arguably the best looking windblade atm
    thanks ,
    Looking further into it , I suspect that the scabbard would fit into tr's thighs as there are slots at the side of her thighs that seem suspicious but need someone else who owns both copy to confirm . For now if I'm not wrong we could have something to look forward to if Takara does a legends release of her .

    She looks like an Empress in Lio Convoy's body. Epic! Makes me wish I had bought Lio Convoy.

    Thanks for the review! She really does look like an excellent figure and a huge step up from the Generations toy and I'm looking forward to replacing the T30 one with her. Did they leave a slot in her hips for the Generation toy's sword by any chance?

    Since I have the Thrilling 30 Windblade I'm going to pass on this, sure granted that previous one had some issues, but to me it's minor. This one wow she looks like an amazon like Wonder Woman and that if you look carefully at her Titan/Head Master it sorta looks like Snake Eyes from G.I. JOE, in which is cool. Now, if some people didn't got the previous version of her than this might be a nice stand in, but to each their own.

    The face sculpt is better but the head looks too small for its body. I'll stick to the previous Legends release.

    originally wrote her off as I don't care that much about the character and I didn't love her other molds, these in hand pics are making her look great though.

    Might get a second to turn into saber

    not sure if this helps? Because I don't know if 30's scabbard joint fits your standard 5mm or a slit like this .

    Not sure if they scale right, but I'd love to graft that face onto the RID mold.

    This figure looks superb. Can't wait to own this and Twin Twist.
