TFW Generations Fall of Cybertron Air Raid Gallery

AirRaidRobot62

We’ve got one more toy to showcase to wrap up our coverage of Fall of Cybertron Deluxe Wave 3, so without further ado, here’s Fall of Cybertron Air Raid!

Air Raid is a remolded and retooled version of Shockwave, who was arguably the best of the initial three deluxe releases in this round of Generations. Air Raid gets an excellently done and very detailed new head, a new chest, plus a new gunblade weapon and a second sword weapon. It’s the new weapons where the appeal of the toy lies, because the gunblade (replacing Shockwave’s arm cannon) can not only convert between a gun and a sword form, but it can break down into the gunblade portion and a second gun (which looks a bit like something the Generation 1 Aerialbots used). The second gun can attach to the arm like Shockwave’s arm cannon, giving you already a good selection of options for displaying this guy, and that’s not without getting into the sword accessory, which can be combined with the gunblade (or its components) in a couple of different ways to form some rather impressive swords!

In short – half the fun of this toy comes from his accessories and in plugging them together to make a whole bunch of different weapon combos. That is ultimately why if you are thinking of passing on Air Raid you should probably think again – he’s just plain fun. This fan had the most fun he has had with a Transformer toy in a good while fiddling around with this one figuring out the many different weapon combinations, a selection of which are showcased in our gallery.

    I'm loving this trend of retooling molds so that they don't even feel like a re-use.

    If I get Fireflight (and I'm sorely tempted to even though I already have Shockwave), I think I'll figure out a different alt mode configuration for him, one that gets the Autobot insignia right-side-up.
    I know he's packaged as "Air Raid", but he's Fireflight in my books.

    Looks really good, can't wait to find him at retail, will probably pick him up.

    Only thing I don't like is the upside-down Autobot logo in vehicle mode.

    I don't think his alt mode is a space ship. But rather an artillery cannon/mortar.

    his gunblade looks a bit like Prime Optimus's swords. This feels different enough from Shockwave to be worth a purchase

    Love this guy! Although I will still call him "Fire Flight", he is for sure, one I want to get. I love the weapon variety he is.
