TFW Generations Sky Shadow Gallery

Sky-Shadow-Robot-28

We’ve got a new Transformers Generations Gallery for you now. This time out, we’re giving some love and attention to the other new release in the current Generations assortment, Sky Shadow. Sky Shadow is an awesome little toy – very sharp in black and red, with enough remolded parts to make him a unique robot all of his own. He’s also a homage to the original 1989 Transformers Victory Black Shadow, himself a Thunderwing remold – as the original was exclusive to Japan, this new toy marks the first time this particular character has ever been released outside of Japan.

    Another new Generations toy gallery for you guys, this time by yours truly!

    For those not familiar with this guy - Thunderwing was never released in Japan in the 80s, like a lot of the later Pretender toys. His toy was remolded though to make a Japan only "Crossformer" named Black Shadow, for Transformers Victory.

    It's a dream come true that Hasbro should celebrate that fact with this toy - it's the closest I'm ever getting to the "real" Black Shadow!

    Ironically the lack of inner robot doesn't matter so much here - you could even argue it's more show accurate since in his one episode appearance in Victory, you never actually saw the inner robot!

    Anyhow, enough from me, check out and enjoy the gallery.

    I can't think of a better example of how a new head and deco makes me do a 180 on a toy.

    I have to agree. While I enjoyed Thunderwing at the time, when I look at Thunderwing alongside Sky Shadow, I really feel like Thunderwing has a pretty pathetic excuse for a head.

    Hasbro should do these 'exclusive Japan-only' centric characters more often. I know they'd get my money every time!

    I got him last weekend. However, their was a bad paint job on part of his chest.
    Some of it was white. I'm replacing him soon as I find another one.

    I just opened Black Shadow today too. I decided he has a crush on Nightbird. Got a problem with that?

    Blackie loves Nightie. Mafia and Yakuza.



    There's a new sheriff in town, and he's looking to take down the space mafia!



    I'm taking you in!
