    Do you like the way Combiner Wars jets and Classics Seeker transform?
    Well this guy is pretty much the same familiarity. The jet part folds up to a nice tidy backpack. He's a bit flat and the only notable hollow exposed part is his forearms, but that's most TFs these days.

    He's okay. I like the guns, paint/details, and the head sculpt is very traditional compared to RID's style so he could blend in with classics/gen/etc.

    I was on the fence on picking this guy up. Bot mode isn't terrible, and I like the headsculpt, but that jet mode is a deal breaker. At least the CW jets that had bot parts hanging under the jet top were molded enough to make them unobtrusive. This one just looks terrible.

    I doubt this guy will appear in the show since he has a nose, but man does he look good. Gonna pick him up if I ever see him.

    I found this guy today, and for the most part he's a great figure. He has nice tight joints, good articulation, and is a much better Seeker template than RID Deluxe Starscream is. :lol 

    My issue however, is Hasbro's cheapness, and it strikes in a place I've never seen before, which is his head. He has no back of the head, and it's completely hollow in there.

    WTF man!?!

    Oh, and his gun can become landing gear for jet mode:

    I bought this one and the Starscream, and I must admit it's one of the few (if not only) times I've regretted a TF purchase at normal store price. They are both cheap, hollow, lazy junk.

    At $5 a piece I would probably still have regretted it.

    I love this dude, he's great.

    Jet mode's beefy shoulders are'nt as bad in hand, it's all tight. No Windblade-ish wobbly areas.
    Bot mode is awesome. It does feel like a seeker with the wingback, finned jetboots and shoulder intakes.

    No looseness on him or blastwave.
    Am shocked.

    I found one today and to be completely honest I LOVE him. He is just about as generic as you can get for a jetformer, right down to a classically generic hero motif of white with blue and red accents.

    But something is really endearing about that. He is unabashedly generic but for some reason it just works for me. I love the head sculpt too, aside from it being hollow. Its like they forgot to put in a lightpiping part.

    His weapons are pretty cool as well. I especially love the tiny snub nose double barrel pistol.

    I could see myself buying repaints of this mold.

    This guy would look awesome as Cybertron Thundercracker. I want a few of these guys for custom projects.

    The disparity of opinions on this guy are quite wide.

    I'd kind of like to see this guy done up as Pharma.

    Great figure but stretching it at current MSRP(I feel that way about most Warrior figures). For some reason it feels a lot more solid than previous RID figures(like compared to Starscream and Windblade). Great aside from the hollow parts and I wish the shoulders could be hidden more. I like how the guns can be configured in different ways.

    I'm mixed on this guy. His robot mode looks great (and for a Brit the paint job in both modes makes it fell like a flying Union Jack...which I still like despite all the crap Theresa Fucking May has been pulling lately). The "turbine shoulders" look better that I expected in jet mode from the top. Its when you look from the bottom in jet mod things fall apart. His hollow head is annoying but not as bad as I first thought. He's also probably the simplest deluxe jet Trasnformation I've see in years. Even more so than the 11 year old generations mould.

    So yeah, 7/10. Solid effort, could do with improvement
