Feast your on the mighty fiesty fan favorite Legacy United Deluxe Cyberverse Windblade!
Koki Yamada san has just been blessing these Legacy Generations figures and my excitement to work with him cannot be contained!
She does resemble her appearance in Cyberverse as I felt in my heart her character persona and features in that series really stood out. But, this figure adopts traits and style tidbits from her first generations figure and her appearance in the machinima series. I did peek at alot of the comic styles of her and the Legacy United fusion has welcomed this sleek, aerodynamic version of her to slice into your collection.
Move over Knockout, cause this heart throb is a fierce warrior with a plethora of abilities. Her stormfall sword will ignite with energon essence due to its shear power. Her tessen head fan actually has a special ability that can assist with her city speaker powers but I’ll let you all play that story out on your own! Her face deco came out so clean and gorgeous, I focus alot of energy towards head sculpts as I feel its what brings the soul of the character to life.
Please enjoy the rotating turbofans in this super sonic jet mode. The stormfall swords turbine hilt is able to be plugged into her side thigh and also can be utilized as a fire blast engine effect. Did I mention the cockpit seats that Koki san slipped in there, bringing them diaclone pilot vibes back into the mainstream is always welcomed.
It would be nice if they made Windblade one of those "deluxe +" release voyagers like Hot Rod, Override, Ironhide and Ratchet. This way she can get the extra tooling she'd need to be spectacular and a fair bit taller. If they're going to link Windblade and Slipstream together, it would really make more sense for the base mold to be a voyager to be more in line with Starscream for multiple reasons. Windblade was poised for a while to be one of the top Transformers characters and again, that would help warrant the larger figure. But it seems that she's been knocked back down a few rungs on the importancy ladder in the grand scheme of the brand.
They definitely got better at making Windblade toys though.
A quick way to clean it all up though. Make the torso large enough to accomodate the robot head for jet mode and most, if not all of the nose cone and canopy for robot mode. Similar in theory to Cyclonus or more specifically, Metalhawk. Have the robot mode shoulder pads become the air intakes/front sides of the jet (the parts that become the backpack on this figure) with the arms becoming the underside of the nose cone and canopy area. The hands do a flippy deal to go inside of the forearms and a quarter each of the nose cone pieces come out from there. OR the arms can compress and hide in the shoulder pad parts or inside of the nose cone and canopy. Ultimately, I feel the arms need to form some part of the front of the jet from now on instead of just bolting onto the sides of the jet like they've been doing. The legs and wings are pretty much good to go or have been done well enough between the iterations of her we have so far.
