Transformers Mini-Con WINDSHEAR!

Transformers: Generations Series 02 #13 - Mini-Con Assault Team - Hasbro 2014

This little lady snuck right by me this past year. I feel like I impatiently flipped by this figure a thousand times this year while frantically seeking Windblade, Arcee, and Chromia. Then while searching for a picture of Flamewar, Flareup, and Transmutate for my Year-End Review, I found the *ahem* fuckyeahwarriorwomen tumblr which had a group photo of all of 2014's fembots including this mysterious little green lady. I was immediately on the hunt. I soon discovered that Windshear is a part of the Mini-Con Assault Team alongside Heavytread and Runway. Mini-cons are small human-sized Transformers that combine to form a standard-size Transformer. These three mini-cons combine to form Centuritron. The great thing about discovering her in the 11th hour is that the Assault Team pack was on clearance in almost every store I went to. It was a no-brainer.  I wish all my purchases could be so obviously pre-ordained.  Let's check out Windshear below!

It's probably pretty obvious from her name and her protruding blades that her vehicle form is a helicopter (although it must be a tiny helicopter if her robot form is supposed to be human-size).

Each of the mini-cons in the set come with an accessory.  All three accessories can combine to form Centuritron's gun.

There's a slight repaint available in the Takara release.  I think the silver details in the cockpit chestpiece are a nice improvement.

Here are a couple shots of the combined Centuritron.

And here is the whole Mini-Con Assault Team with Heavytread, Windshear, and Runway.

Time for a Comparison Pic!

Here she is with Beast Hunters Prime Airachnid and Transformers: Prime Cyberverse Flamewar.



  1. One of the best female TF toys, and at such a small scale. :) She looks recognizable female without looking oversexualized like the third party toys...
    Mine has her problems, as do her teammates - they keep falling apart. Probably the plastic is not up to standards.

    Btw, the Legion sized Windblade RID toy was just released, and she is pretty awesome. Better then the Deluxe, in many ways a lot like Airachnid.

    1. Ooo I've been looking for the Windblade but didn't know she was out yet. I have the 3rd party one in my "pile of loot" that hasn't been shipped to me yet. Sorry your Windshear is so unstable. I must've really lucked out because mine is fine.
