Tomahawk - Movie - Figure

Tomahawk

The last movie Deluxe class helicopter we ran across was, well, not exactly stellar. Hasbro decided to give it another go and now gives us Tomahawk.

Bio

Tomahawk may be slow, but he's made a career out of taking on Decepticons faster than him, and blowing them out of the sky. He uses himself as bait to draw in overconfident Decepticon aces, then he fills the sky around them with heat-seeking missiles. Jetblade and Terradive don't stand a chance.

Alt Mode

Tomahawk's alt mode is an earth style combat helicopter. Mostly black, you will spot a small Autobot insignia on each winglet, as well as gold accents in various spots. There are also red painted vents just below the 2 tiered cockpit.

Each winglet features a pair of molded missiles, a gatling cannon and a launchable missile. If you don't like the missiles there, you can also clip the launchers in the tail section. For landing gear, there is a retractable 3pt system with molded wheels. While the lower ends looks a bit off due to the tucked in legs, overall it's a very sharp looking copter.

Alt Mode Specs

Length: 6in/152.4mm
Width:3.63in/92.2mm (5.5in/139.7mm w/rotor)
Height:2.13in/54.1mm
Scale Ratio:N/A
Wheels: 3, retractable and molded.
Detailed cockpit:Semi-detailed, dual cockpit w/chairs

Transformation

Start by unclipping the launchers. Pull the legs from the belly and extend them completely down. Grab one half of the rotor blades and rotate them so they're flush with the other half. Fold the winglets upward. Separate the tail section into two pieces. Pull the tails halves outward, then forward. Push the leg section back so it rests on the fuselage. Pull down on the tan section that are the feet. Hinge out the landing gear and tan section form the feet and haunches.

Fold down the cockpit to form the chest. Lift the cockpit glass so you can reveal the head. Rotate the tail sections so they point forward. Rotate the intake vents so the vents are the shoulders. Cantilever the tail rotor assemblyu so it folds up against the forearms and reveal the hands. Rotate the head forward to finish.

Robot Mode

The end result is equally as sharp. While the body and forearms are black, the upper arms are tan. The legs are mostly silver. The head sculpt, with the lensed optics, looks alot like Cybertron Crosswise. The back of the head is piped blue for the eyes.

The winglets rest behind the shoulders, allowing the launchable missiles to act as shoulder cannons. If that doesn't suit your fancy, you can also clip the launchers to the forearms to serve as arm cannons. This can allow you to fold the winglets so they rest on his back, if so desires. This cleans up the look considerably. As a bonus, the tail rotor on the right forearm can also act as a claw.

Articulation

Feet:Pin hinge, 180 degree bend
Knees:Pin hinge, 90 degree bend.
Hips: Ball joint, 180 degree bend and 90 degree spread
Waist:Stationary
Shoulders:Ball joint, unlimited rotation and 90 degree spread. Pinned below shoulder for unlimited arm rotation
Elbows:Pin hinge, 90 degree bend
Head:Ball joint w/pin hinge, unlimited rotation w/ 45 degree downward tilt

The stabilizer wings on the cockpit prevent full articulation on the hips. Combined with lack of twist on the legs, it can limit posing somewhat.

Robot Mode Specs

Height:5.5in/139.7mm
Width:4in/101.6mm
Depth:2.75in/69.9mm
Supplied accessories:(2) cannon w/ launchable missile

Verdict

Alt Mode: Sharp looking helicopter mode, well executed.
Robot Mode:Limits on leg poseability are the only negative.
Overall:A vast improvement for a deluxe class helicopter.

Class:Deluxe

MSRP:$13
