We’re back with another photoshoot for Power of the Primes – and we’re unleashing the Dinobots with the newest member of the crew, Slash! A female Dinobot who transforms into a raptor, Slash’s bio suggests she is a tracker – which means she is well suited as a Legend class figure which is usually where the scout and espionage type characters like Bumblebee feature. Slash’s design also features some cool tricks, including a transformation that seems to be inspired by Beast Wars Dinobot. The overall design manages to successfully evoke all the features that made the look of the original Dinobots, really helping to make Slash appear a part of the team.
Overall, Slash is a nice figure. Both modes are nicely poseable, though the raptor mode has some balance issues. Slash is also a figure who really needs a weapon – we recommend the axe from the 2013 Generations Orion Pax, as Slash looks pretty awesome with an axe or polearm. Check out her gallery below – we’ve got some shots of Slash with a couple of different weapons for your viewing pleasure, as well as lots of pics of the robot mode and beast mode in many poses. Enjoy!
Power of the Primes Slash Dinobot Mode with Micronus Prime
I’m a fan of how this alternate mode looks. The Prime Master seat on the dinosaur mode brings back memories of Dino Riders.
Power of the Primes Slash Robot Mode
I like how this robot mode takes a lot of cues from the style and the look of the original Dinobots. It makes her fit right in with the original Dinos like she was always there.
Power of the Primes Slash with Generations Orion Pax Axe
I liked the idea of Slash having a polearm or other melee weapon. Orion’s axe ended up looking far cooler in her hands than I’d imagine.
Power of the Primes Slash with Power Core Combiners Grimstone
Dinobot B-Team, Assemble!
Power of the Primes Slash VS Transformers Energon Cruellock
I like this pairing – in my mind, Cruellock could be a rival for Slash.
