Transformers EarthSpark - NIGHTSHADE!

Transformers: EarthSpark - Deluxe Class Figures - Nightshade - Hasbro 2023

I really dig the designs of the new Terran characters from Transformers EarthSpark. The Terrans are five (so far) Transformers that were born on Earth from Quintus Prime's Emberstone. When they first appear, they lack a lot of detail don't develop a lot of features until they define themselves and their alternate modes. Nightshade chose the alternate form of an owl inspired by a character in Alex Malto's favorite book, Winged Sentinel. I personally love when a Transformer has a bird as an alternate mode. It reminds me of Hoot from the Convertors: Avarians toys I had as a kid. Plus the name Nightshade has always appealed to me. I love the word itself and it's representation of deadly plants. Plus the villain Nightshade from C.O.P.S. and the teleporting DC Comics/Charlton character were both favorites. So this Earthspark figure was a definite must-have for me. The colors and design look great. I especially enjoy the large bat-like ears - very unique for a Transformer. Let's check out Nightshade below!

Nightshade comes with detachable wings and two small blades.

I love Nightshade's beast mode of an owl. The wings offer an unexpected but necessary range of motion.

Nightshade also comes with the Build-a-Figure Torso for Dr. Meridian as Mandroid.

Time for a Comparison Pic!



  1. Neat Transformer. Love the design.

  2. Do you have Carmen from starship troopers?

    1. I think I do somewhere still in the package. I know I never held her loose.

    2. Do you have Lioness from alpha teens on machines?

    3. No, but she's on my wishlist along with Firecat. They are not easy to come by in US.

    4. Are you thinking about buying the action figures from the film Elemental?
