Robots in Disguise Deluxe WINDBLADE!

Robots in Disguise - Deluxe - Mini-Con Weaponizers - Windblade - Hasbro 2016

It took me a long time to realize that this Windblade figure is completely different from all the Windblade figures we've already seen. I'm so used to seeing repaints in the Transformers line that I barely even glanced at the solicitation images. It was only when I saw an early review of the 2016 SDCC Transformers Titan Force Boxset and noticed that the gray Windblade was a completely new figure. It's funny that the variant was released months before the standard version hit the shelves, but she was worth the wait. I like these animated-style Transformers. My aesthetics always trend toward more simplified designs and brighter colors. Plus these are significantly easier for me to transform. I don't watch the Robots in Disguise cartoon, but I just researched the characters and discovered a few really cool females that would make great toys: Glowstrike, Filch, and Zizzo especially. Plus a random Decepticon that looks like a yellow Arachnid. I'm hopefull! Let's check out Windblade below!

Look I was actually able to transform her!

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here she is with the original Windblade figure from 2014.

And with the other Robots in Disguise lady, Strongarm.

    1. I know I love her. I was in a kmart yesterday and they had a ton of her on the shelf (if anyone is hunting).

  2. You should also check out 3rd party "Iron Factory" take on her, "EX05 Windsaber". It's like a teensy version of her, like a daughter.

    1. I actually own that figure bust she's still in my box of goodies to photograph and review. That's the only thing that sucks about having a blog... you can't rip something open right away (like I always did in the past) now I have to be super patient. I've had her for a few months in a big box of stashed figures from the TheChosenPrime.
