Hasbro Transformers Robots in Disguise Mini-Con Weaponizers Warrior Class Windblade Action FigureAs Hasbro's first "fan-built robot," the character of Windblade has been given a few different toy forms - most of which incorporate a sword and fans. At least five "Deluxe" and "Warrior"-sized Windbalde toys are out in the USA alone so far, and this mold alone has three known colorways worldwide. The first release was in Fortress Maximus colors as a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive this year, this one is #2, and #3 is this same red version with extra paint applications in Japan. I assume more are coming.

Basically the same size as a deluxe, Windblade stands about 5-inches tall with about 14 points of articulation. Her joints are very stiff - the swivel biceps are particularly tight - but everything can move and nothing on my sample was terribly loose. The red and black figure turned out well, with some red and black highlights that turned out well. Mostly. The thighs are painted red, but it doesn't quite match the rest of the toy. It's a little dark. Blue bits break up the figure nicely, and the head deco keeps the same paint patterns you've come to love in the cartoon and comics - mostly. A good chunk of the "hair" on her head/helmet was left unpainted, although the Japanese version seems to have this area covered slightly more.

The removable fan has some yellow on it, adding a nice little halo of sorts to her nifty noggin. With a white face and some red markings like lips and lines, it's a pretty fantastic figure. It's just the "floof" on the sides that's almost painfully lacking in color.

Transformation is much simpler than the Generations Windblade [FOTD #1,020], which I think is for the best. The nosecone backpack folds over her head, the legs become the back of the jet, and a "tail" folds over the gap to make the jet. It turned out well, and the end result is pretty nice.

A slightly more fanciful sci-fi flight vehicle with pointy wings and fans doesn't look like much else in the world of flight, at least that I easily recognize. The jet mode has some silver in front of the cockpit, a little blue on the back, and not much else. The Japanese release adds a couple of stripes on the wings, but it's fundamentally similar. It's simple, it looks perfectly nice, and the fans on the wings can rotate up if you're so inclined. The jet has but one moving piece of landing gear, which gets in the way of the on-board sword storage if you go that route. Little tabs can grip the sheath underneath quite successfully.

Of the wave, this was the one I was the most excited to get. Sure, I already had the grey and blue exclusive version - but this one is the "correct" paint job, and that's what I'm after. It's great. I hope you get it if you find it, I'm seeing them around town here and there so I know they're shipping. If she only had a sculpted nose, you'd probably gladly accept her as a substitute or replacement for the "Classics" "Generation 1" version. If someone puts out a good replacement head, you might want to do exactly that.
