Thunderwing Vehicle Mode
Thunderwing has a very unique and futuristic Jet mode full of detail, It has front and rear landing gears with wheels and the 2 rear fins are adjustable also it is not in the instructions but you can open out the wings to give a swept forward look that works. The whole jet is full of a Zig-Zag pattern which is everywhere on it. The 2 guns fit nicely underneath the wings and look good on or off. The "Drone" is cool and looks nice but would have much better if it transformed or had some flip out weapon or something, the jet still looks good without the drone attached. Only problem with this mode is that there is ZERO attempt to hide the arms everything else pretty much is hidden.
Thunderwing Robot Mode
The transformation to Robot mode is simple yet very unique, everything is easy to move around and it is a super fun transformation. The Robot mode is a bit short and lacks some articulation but overall is very nice. The headsculpt is very sinister and really suits the overall look of the figure, Articulation is a bit of a let down: No waist, head is limited, Shoulders are limited because of the shoulder spikes and the ankles only move a bit. The rest is very good, I love the way the wings look like a cape and the chest looks cool, The guns can be stored on the back but don't look great, in his hand they are awesome and can even be put together to make a BIG GUN which also works on Generations Thrust .
A great figure, Highly recommended, but it does have a few problems none too serious, just a lack of articulation and some bad vehicle mode kibble.
